I usually do drop sets from heavy to light....thats a great way to really fatigue the muscle

Why not go spend a hundred bucks of your own money and bring some additional weight to your workplace's gym?

pyramid up, light to heavy. lets you get a feel of the heavier weights with low reps.

personally after warming up i go heavy as possible and try to get 5-6 strict reps then i drop down to a lighter weight that i can hit againd for 5-6...this way you're breaking down your muscle w/ the heaviest weight possible and making adapt to that weight..this has been effective for me b/c everyweek my weight or my reps go up..but my work-out partner is just the opposite his body seems to respond better going light to heavy..it might take awhile to figure out what works for you

That's the key thing. You have to figure out what works best for you, not what works best for us.

You have 385 pounds of free weights? You must be a freaking monster if that much weigth can't provide a stimilus for growth. I might of read the question wrong, but. .
See if someone else who works out at the gym wants to split the cost of some more weights?

My body responds best to pyramiding... but I throw in some drop sets every so often and do quite a few Rest Pauses to keep my body guessing.

I respond best to warm up .. and then heavy blasts.
for chest I would do something like this.
warm up with arm swinging wildly ..
then light flat bench
then 225 to failure
then to 345
then to 385 right to a set of body weight dips to failure
then 80lbs db press (heaviest)
80 lbs db press to 45 lbs flyes
that pumps me up about enough to explode
takes about 25 minutes tops
swing arms around wildly for about 5 minutes .. go eat and have a dump
Chicahomico.. yah.. I may do that .. I have a olympic set at home... guess I can 'donate" for the time being.

Just join a gym... its the end up summer, some specials might still be going on as gym revenue in the summer is terrible.
