    I wish I had the space at home for a home gym. I was nearly ready to pull the trigger on renting a storage locker and building my own gym there, but I found a gym that was operating outside. Since they've paroled us in Commiefornia, they reopened the gym inside and got rid of the outdoor gym. I was actually hoping they would've also kept the outside gym going too. I liked getting fresh air while I lifted. It sucks being inside with a bunch of people. No matter how good of a ventilation system they have, it still feels stuffy.

    The open-air gym should be much better for sure, training in a small training center has the downside of crowding a lot of people and one place.




    The previous academy he attended was a small training center, with no coded air and with more than 100 people. When the second wave of covid-19 came, all the gyms were forced to close by law, however, the owner kept it clandestinely open with all doors closed. The place was already hot, it got ten times worse, just a fan for more than 10 people in one place. I decided to set up my gym at home because of that, to be more practical to get up at any time I want, without taking the risk of contracting the covid-19 that was causing many people in my city to die. The federal government decreed the opening of the gyms starting next week with some security restrictions, they were closed since the beginning of March.

    My home gym is doing well, but I started building it out before the pandemic.

    I'm presently trying to DIY a rack extension with smith machine, or maybe just trucks / carriers that will go on the existing uprights. I REALLY like smith machines for working calves, but yeah, I could probably find additional uses for one if I had one.

    More still the same. Using the stuff I can until I get the arm/nerve issue resolved. Yes, if you look closely at the middle pic of the leg press there are some 100 pound plates in the mix.

    Yes this lol!

    When I post pics of my home setup, it's like a movie set: everything in camera is perfect, but just out of view is like a seafood buffet and open bar.

    Dude don't worry about it. Observe the environment where I am setting up my home gym, a small room under renovation.

    I can’t do without a commercial gym

    From the mirrors I get to stare at myself in, to the gym clowns - to all the fresh yoga pant clad asses

    It’s my only outlet for the day - I’m glad my home gym lasted me as long as I needed it to - I sold everything already, aside from some nice dumbbells

    I understand, many are like you, like to interact in a social environment. I already hate being in a crowded gym, I hate it when there are women in the devices that I'm going to use doing physical therapy with light weights. They are sexy most of the time, but that doesn’t change the purpose and focus that I go to the gym, the gym is going to pull weight, free my mind from the outside world. I even go to the commercial gym to train more to lift weight, man. Many women even look at me, flirting, I don't even look at their faces anymore.

    + it’s where “we” pull most pussy from - the wife needs to get on her a game stat & get a new instructor


    It’s the whole environment + variety of exercise equipment. I stick primarily now to resistance & having the equipment variety is a solid half of why it’s a must for me

    I’m glad I don’t have to feel like competing with anyone at my home gym. One of the best things for me was being able to let my body heal without feeling like a pussy. I’m with you Davi, girls are just a distraction at the gym. I remember fucking up my shoulder doing extra heavy dumbbell chest presses cause a hot girl was working out next to me. I was already injured but decided to do 125s like an idiot. For that I suffered with rotator cuff pain for 2 years and it’s still not 100%.

    If the intention is to build a more solid body, I agree, a weight training academy offers thousands of equipment to work with different angles and muscle groups.

    A post by Marcus years ago made me open my mind and my way of thinking before training. He said that in order to release the inner fury to pull weights, concentration was necessary. After reading, I never wasted my time with hot girls at the gym. I get a lot of inspiration from Doria Yates, Branch Warren, Tom Platz, Coleman when it comes to training.

    Wasted time & hot girls do not belong in the same sentence

    I don’t know how long I got left - it’s def no waste of time for me

    To each is own tho

    I get it - sorta

    Something about catching one straight starring at ya gets me going for a while - me & wife were just talking about this shit the other day too

    Since women try not to stare - or at least make it appear that way

    That's a good plan, the boobs should tell you everything you need to know

    I’m weird af, so

    A face on a female is important to me - body 1st, of course - but, I’m a sucker for a pretty face

    I love when girls do up all of their make up when they roll to the gym. . . Lol

    But, when you get that mascara running down their face - that’s really special
