    during the 6-8 hours? I tried working out a few times last week after work (changing jobs and I don't get to lift in the early afternoon anymore) and its just a fucking mess. Its a bunch of dipshits running arround flexing in front of the cardio room, talking on the cell phone, and just generally not there to work out.

    Isn't it pretty much a safe bet that every gym is going to be like this, and I am just fucked? I've been thinking of getting up at 4AM, lifting until 6, then going to work.

    Any thoughts?

    I used to lift in the early morning and liked it. I ran into a guy the other day that was resting on a damn lat machine talking on his phone...gay as hell.

    Yeah, this place is a fucking circus. Its a bunch of horney dudes running arround like they're in highschool again. Its more of an issue with how many people are there.

    There is rarely anyone in my gym all day. I went the other morning before work because I had plans during my usual work out time, and besides me, there was one other person in there.

    My college gym is PACKED from morning till night. Then again, it's a school with 35k+ students in image obsessed SoCal. Anyhow, I always work out after work, around midnight, so I don't have to wait in a line for the machines/benches. Sometime's I'll be there until after 3am and the freeweights room will be empty. Feel like asking the janitor for a spot heh.

    ARC at SDSU. Open 24hrs Mon-Thurs, closes at 10pm Fri/Sat, and open again at 8am on Sun. Shit is huge, and they have new equipment added all the time. Plus they're building a new $12 million "Aquatic Center" (aka giant ass pool). Makes me wonder how much of my tuition has gone towards tight glutes and bulging biceps.

    Gym I go to at home is more of a social gathering around 9am-11am during the week. Empty before 9am and after 11am though. I've never actually been in the gym past 2pm.

    Ever time I go to my gym in plano there is always free benches and the squat rack. That of course is because there are only 6- people in the freeweight section at one time.

    it was in one of his videos. from what i remember, it only showed him doing the stair climber at home and maybe a little bit of legs. it's been awhile since i've seen it though so i could be wrong. i'm pretty sure he works out at home secondary to the other gym :dunno:

    yeah he has a gym at his house. In the second video he did the stairclimber after comming home from Metroflex every day and on saturdays he did calfs at his own gym, but went to the Metroflex afterwards. I got the vid if somebody wants to host.
