    Where Do You Lift??

    i thought it might be interesting to post some pics of the gym i use to get it done and figd i could start a thread and maybe some of yall would do the same. my gym is particular interesting as it is very old and rugged. some of the machines are funny to see as u will notice and it took me awhile to get used to some of it but now i love going there. i have put myself thru some serious torture in this gym and my entire transformation was done in this gym!

    i never have to wait in line and most of the time i am the only guy in there! i hope yall enjoy the pics and i also hope to see some pics of where yall lift as well!

    i know kel uses his basement and im sure some of yall have some interesting set-ups too!

    just a coke machine! LOL.. yes it is air conditioned. the guy who owns it was big into lifting and has sons that were powerlifting guys. the front of the building is a hair salon and he cuts hair LOL.. he is a cool dude, but he actually turns the a/c off at night. it is still hot in there in the summer (like today)..

    lol, I guess you gotta get your sugar! He'd probably sell a bunch more if he had energy drinks in there.

    Haircuts?! One stop shop! I like it

    Real spit and saw dust stuff, I like it!

    I'll probably be changing gyms soon as there's a boxing gym I want to get into. Fortunately they have free weights and stuff there..

    Lol, that is the first thing I noticed. I see you work out with no shirt too. None of the gyms I have ever used allow that; but if you are the only one there, then it doesn't matter. What do you pay monthly if you don't mind my asking?

    Damn, that's a great deal! You're paying less than $10 per month. No wonder why they can't afford new shit!

    You wont believe how pathetic my gym is even if i show you pics. There are only 3 barbells in the place. One on a flat bench, one on an incline bench, and one in the squat rack. Plus a smith machine. So a total of 4 serious stations. And at each station, there is only one pair of 45 plates. So in the whole damn place, only a grand total of 8 plates. There are smaller plates of cos. 15kg, 10kg, 5kg. Even 2.5kg. But the big 20kg/45lbs ones. Only 8.

    And the heaviest db is 20kg/45lbs.

    Still want to see pics

    Its pretty huge. And "in the back" is another gym for a select few of us with newer bars, boxes for rack pulls, platform for deficits, bands+chains, and dumbbells to 200lbs.

    I keep my trophies and swords on the front desk so everyone has to see them when they walk in.

    Damn. Sounds like an owner who actually gives a crap about lifting. I used to train in one like that years back. They made most of their equipment and it was awesome. One of the most competitive atmospheres I've ever trained in. And I've been to some of the famous gyms in CA to compare it to...

    Everyone who lifts there all juice and compete. Just a bunch of huge bodybuilders and powerlifters. Test levels probably go up just walking inside Haha. The owner used to compete and still trains people. He has a separate job from the gym. I doubt he makes anything on the gym itself. Nobody works there, u get a key card to come in and lift
