It is incon­ve­nient even for expe­ri­enced ath­letes to train when the fit­ness club is full. If you do not want to stand in lines at the sim­u­la­tors, try to come at a time when there are few­er peo­ple in the gym. The main influx of stu­dents falls on lunch hours (14:00–16:00) and the end of the work­ing day (18:00–20:00). Are you shy about the stronger sex?

For exam­ple, in between sets, you can down­load the press. Or train on a cir­cu­lar basis, when all exer­cis­es are per­formed in one approach with­out rest.
