Smile The best $3 I ever spent...

I'm doing a 5x5... and since the weight stays the same for each set, if I get distracted, I easily loose count of which set I'm on. Well, I discovered a great way to keep my set count straight.

RANGER BEADS.

You can buy these at any military surplus store; and some of the better outdoor/hiking stores may have them too.

Basically, they're a bunch of black beads, threaded on a couple strands of green 550 cord (parachute cord). They're used for tracking mileage on a road march or hike... know your pace-count, then slide a bead down the cord every time you hit a set distance.

Anyway... In the gym, I just slide a bead down when I finish a set. Now I never forget what set I'm on! I just loop them on the end of the barbell and voila...

Plus, they're a great conversation piece in the gym... almost nobody knows what they are

Hanging beads of the bar... If I was at the gym and saw that I would just assume you were trying some black magic to lift more weight. lol.

Talking I wasn't going to say anything, but...

Actually it's voodoo... I consulted a Gay-evil-midget-witchdoctor that said I should hang beads from the bench press bar while letting my left testicle hang out of the right side of my Speedo thong workout shorts... he said that this will conjure up an aura that will increase my chances of getting flamed for posting something on bodybuilding.net

OK, so you don't have to hang them from the bar... and yes... if you're into that kind of sick shit, you could use them for anal beads... but then I'm sure the other gym members would complain.

Gay or not... I'm still using them... although I may re-consider hanging them from the bar
