How bad is a 10-20 min break in your workout ?

Here's the problem, the gym near me has Lat Pulldown machine and assisted pull-up machine which I need for lats, but they dont have any weights

How bad is it if I do

5X5 Heavy deadlifts and 4X5-7 heavy barbell rows in my home, then take 10-20 minutes to get to the gym and do 4x8-10 Lat Pulldowns, 4xfailure assisted pull-ups and some leg presses for legs [ I do squats on tuesday]. Then some cardio.

Will that 10-20min break be detrimental? Thanks

You'd be pretty cooled down by then. I wouldn't say its so bad for your muscle building, but more so for your general athletic ability.

If you have to wait for a machine, why not go ride the stationary bike to keep warmed up while you wait? In a very busy gym there's times I'm forced to wait for a machine or a bench so I didn't want to get too cooled down before I could do the particular exercise

If i was forced to do a partial workout at home I personally would do it a couple times a week as a whole separate workout I would be frustrated trying to keep a pump and tear ass to the gym.

hang your bar from the rafters in the garage and do your lats at home.

Personally, I wouldn't let it bother me. Hit it hard. Go past the pump.
