    I was feeling fucking good today for whatever reason. DLing 405 felt like nothing. I worked my way up to 500 and got 4 reps out. On the last rep I couldn't hold it any longer and had to drop the weight. My training partner said some lady muttered "is that really necessary?" then went to the front desk to complain. 30 seconds later the 140lb tool that works the front desk came over and told us we can't slam the weights. I told him that if I couldn't DL there then there was no point in going. He replied that's just the rules and walked off.

    After that I was going to go for a PR of 565 (not getting me into the Olympics or strong man anytime soon but good for me) but didn't even bother because I would have surely dropped the weight after that.

    GOD DAMN MOTHERFUCKERS, just let me deadlift in peace. Old people stick to 24hr and curves for god sakes. :madfawk::mad:

    Very lucky, soo many liberal fucks out here ruin it for everyone. I mean if you can't train hard at golds then where can you?

    Possibly, good point.



    Dude that would have made my night! :o

    surprised they would approach you for that, gold's is considered a little more hardcore on the list of fitness chains

    i dont think people at gyms should be so anal. it is a place with loud music and weights bangin everywhere. some douche at my gym always purposefully slams the barbells into the racks. now that is something they should not allow.

    what's the point? You get a spot for bench cuz if you cant finish the rep, the shit falls on your head. You get a spot for squats cuz otherwise, it comes down on top of you. But a deadlift? You can always just drop it.

    Mainly to show that he has no idea about bodybuilding and has never even lifted heavy enough to realize what it's like to go all out. I'm not hardcore or stage ready by any means but I like to think I put in my best effort. I don't like to be told what to do by a guy 8 years younger and 100lbs lighter .


    I can see not slamming the DB's, I got yelled at for that a long time ago and in retrospect agree that it can break the weld and it sucks not having that DB for a week or two while they fix it.

    I understand that he is not a hardcore bodybuilder, but he did not try to offer you advice about bodybuilding. He was simply telling you the rules of the gym(as stupid as they are), and most likely did not care about your DL'ing, rather just felt compelled to make a comment to you because of the old lady. Don't be so quick to put the kid down...he gets paid to do a job.

    I'm not a hardcore bodybuilder either, just a skinny guy trying to get as big as I can be. He might of had some understanding if he ever trained hard himself instead of running over to me telling me I can't DL anymore. I guess it boils down to me not having any respect for him in the least bit.

    i understand if you were one of those pricks at the gym that bang the weights everytime they can. but dropping it once because of a failed rep...i'd be pissed too if some douchebag came up to reprimand me.

    only time i ever complained at the gym was when there was 2, 3 or 4 year olds just running all over the place. I think seeing a child get its head smashed would ruin my workout.

    there is a room in the back where the kids are allowed to play (mostly watch tv), and the parents can watch from the treadmills via cctv. well these two kids wouldn't stay in the room and kept running from the room, all away across the gym (through the freeweight area) to the treadmills where their mom was. She didn't give a shit though, she kept yacking to her fat ass friend. after about 5 mins of the kids running around she would tell them to go back, only to have the whole process repeat 10 minutes later.
    after i finished my workout i went up to teh counter and asked the guy if they allowed children to play in the gym. he gave me a strange look was said "nooo....". so i told him about the kids running through the freeweights and the negligent fat mom.
    i think on my way out the gym attendent threw the kids out into the busy street in front of their mom... or maybe thats just what i imagined happened when i left....
