    BAG is right next to my house, but I'm a scrawnly little bastard, and not a power lifter. I don't ever really want to be a power lifter, atleast not to the competition level, but I do want to look good and all. It doesn't really help to lift at 24 hour fitness because of all the damn women parading arround, and dipshit assholes flexing in front of them. Do you think BAG has a treadmill and an exercise bike?

    Will BAG even let me join, and if I do, will I be the biggest tool box in there?

    I know I don't really belong in a power lifting gym, but I can't focus with the college frat party crap that goes on at my gym. Seriously, these fuckers park thier lamborghini's out front and shit, just to walk in and flex in front of sluts.

    I don't think you understand the extreme level of faggotry in this gym...unless you lift at the 24 in frisco which is even worse than lewsiville.

    oh yeah, might be. I need to find a new gym though. Fack!

    I need a gym that's not full of fucktards trying to get laid with exotic cars, and also isn't full of ghetto trash stealing my car and trying to cut me.

    I know that 24 isn't really chock full of cooter, but it would be nice to not have that distraction. The 24 in Frisco is just a fucking circus man. Its almost worth going out there to lift just to see how bad it can get...and check the hotties. I don't see how anyone makes any progress there.

    yeah, didn't know it was invite only. I hate the gap between the "new year's resolution" gyms and power lifting gyms.

    The intensity level difference between a normal gym and BAG will probably make you curl up into the fetal position in a corner and start crying

    Plus BAG (or any PL gym) is about producing elite powerlifters so I think you'd be expected to compete.

    i dunno, as a beginner, a gym is a gym to me. as long as there aren't no talent ass clowns hogging the machines, it's all good. just last week, i wanted to use the power rack for squats, and a douche bag was using it to curl for like 10 minutes. something like that would bother me, and not what what people do in front of mirrors.

    also, i went to the sf - sf people don't say frisco unless you're a teeny bopper - 24 hour fitness before i joined bally's, and i was probably in the most flaming 24 hour fitness there is, other than the castro (not sure if they have one there). there was this "woman" once who walked in on a saturday afternoon with HUGE knockers. that's the first thing i saw and i was like damn. but then i slowly gazed at the manly adam's apple and then the face and was pretty grossed out. "she" wasn't really doing any exercises and just wanted dudes to stare at her. chicks with dicks at gyms, definitely not cool.

    anyway yea, there was a lot of weird stuff that went on in that gym, but i did my own thing and just got out of there.

    I want to enjoy my time in the gym though, thats why I go there. We all get idiots doing curls in squat racks. I get tired of the whores running arround looking for cash, and dude's who go to the gym to fight.

    The main benefit of training at a powerlifting gym is the environment, not necessarily the equipment even though they usually have top notch stuff that most, if not all, commercial gyms will never have
