    Id love to squat and DL in a garage and just blast music and yell like a facking wild animal lol. I dont get any of the free test boosting eye candy where I go (I think it is hilarious they have a squity eyed middle finger smiley) Although I did see a HOTTIE leaving as I was going into the FC. Hair all wet looking like she just got out the shower I tried not to stare but Im pretty sure I did

    I agree, I wish I could do those two exercises without any distractions from the weights.

    I figure I would need an adjustable bench, a squat rack, an olympic bar with at least 8 plates, then a set of 35's, 25's, 10's, and 5's. After that I would just need the entire rack of dumbells and I would be set.

    Except... it's like 3 grand cheaper to just pay 17 bucks a month at a gym around the corner for the foreseeable future.. Stupid economics.

    $17! Damn. You guys have great prices! I'm on the low end with $29 a month and that's because the pay off the entire year at once, so I get a bulk pay discount. I think the average around here is $36/mo.

    I've had my membership since I was 13 and the 24 hour fitness was called "family fitness centers". From what I remember 24 hour bought my contract from them when it sold back in the day and I have kept it ever since, hence my ridiculously low monthly price. What is awesome is I have the membership that gives me access to all 24 hour locations. Ironically since there are now 24 hour active and 24 hour sport gyms... and a crazy one I saw when I was in Houston that was unlike any 24 hour I've ever seen, I have access to ones my friends can't use and they pay about 28 a month.

    425lbs (+20) @ 180lbs = 2.36

    Day 6 of my Katana cycle.

    No belt, no gloves, no ipod. Just chalk. I actually i warmed up with gloves, its just easier to grip bare handed.

  9. I want to deadlift now lol.

    Warmup I had 90 lbs plus the sled on leg press and did like 50 reps to warm my hips up going deep then widening my stance out and going deaper to get as loos and as much blood into the areas.
    225x8 1800
    315x6 1890
    425x3 1275 this tied an old PR
    435x2 870
    315x20 6300 Man that was awesome! I went for 425x3 and got it with much trouble. I mean it was a hard pull but not that bad, I figured I had more in me. I got the 3rd one up just above my knees and it pulled me back down. I rested about 3 minutes stripping the bar to 315 and strapping up to do a max rep set. I did not think I would get ANYWHERE NEAR 20 REPS WITH THAT WEIGHT.
    315x20 is Top Notch!! That's some strongman stuff there

Of course I would tell them they had a whole lot of other stuff to fix before worrying about me making noise. Luckily I am at a 10 a month gym where they basically have the attitude you pay 10$ you get access to the gym that is all we do for you unless you want to buy training. So even if someone complained they would tell them what I was told once. You only pay $10 a month if you don't like the service you get for $10 a month feel free to cancel your membership. Lets be honest they make more money off of gym members who don't go than the ones actually going and complaining. At $10 a month who cancels... LOL

    Oh yeah cool thing, my instructor told me yesterday that since they are moving the Dojo I can have whatever flooring they don't use in the new spot to put in my garage. He gets the nice 3/4 inch commercial stuff too. SO I will have to use that for rolling and what not maybe an Outdoor DL platform... I do have a concreted section of my back yard. HMMM Decisions....
    my garage is where i do all my lifts...love it. no one in my way or complaining. if i need to turn the music up thats what i do.

  12. Oh yeah Tom, I think you asked what Martial Arts I train in. It is an ecclectic martial art and is a combination of 3 specific styles with the best of others thrown in. The school is called Bushi Ban, and it is a mix of Bushi Do Karate, Bando an Indian martial art, and Burmese kick boxing which is like Muy Thai but they also allow head buts, and joint locks.

    We have the Fighter's Elite which is the MMA portion of the school and Bushi Ban is heavily competitive in both Amateur and Professional MMA in Texas and surrounding states. My instructor and I are working on something so I can start training some of the guys and helping them with their diets for fights and what not too. Since I am a little to old to be training now to get in the ring I might as well help create a few champions.

    I will likely try it on Monday. Thing is wont be able to record it sorry guys The FC is closing for renovations. And the camera I was going to use is a friends.

    I will for sure take Sunday off. Supposed to do abs, arms, and legs tomorrow but it looks like I have to do some yard work. The FC closes at 9 on Saturday. Got the whole family dinner thing so Idk if I will have the time. To be honest though I would probably skip the abs to give my core a break. Plus wouldnt want to do legs before I go for a big deadlift PR. So that leaves arms which this is a great workout. Basically Im saying Idk wtf Im going to do lol.

  23. So what your trying to say is....?!?!?!??!!

    RECOVERBRO

    That's alright man, 405 is some heavy sh1t. We will get there some day

  28. Rant-
    Man my gym sux! The smallest plates they have are 5's, no 2.5's, so when your maxin u can only move up in 10lb increments. Super frustrating, bout to go buy a couple 2.5's to bring for deads.

    If u r deadlifting u dont need 2.5s

    I want to get to the point where I cant even fit small increment changes on the bar

    I would just go a buy a couple of sets of 2.5lb plates & keep them in your gym bag?

    Ya I mean how much can they really be? I think weights cost depends on weight.

  32. I am not going to try a new max just to add 5lbs onto my old max. Not worth it.

    There 15 bucks.

    Yeah, I agree five lbs isn't much, but it's all about progression, an moving up five pounds every workout, or even everyother workout adds up after awhile. Just sayin it'd be nice to have the option.

  36. I know I just felt like busting ur balls lol.

    Anyway so Im a dumbass lol. The jump from 675 to 685 is a big one especially when u consider Im 7-8 pounds lighter now. Would have put me at 3.058 times my body weight.

    Btw I NEED a new belt I hate this POS.

    Yeah, I've been thinking about picking one up too. I haven't been using a belt and ithink it's time.

  40. in for the belt answer.

    i dont use one, but have been tossing the idea around of getting one.
