    the fire department is getting some 'fitness' equipment. No one knows any better, so they're getting whatever the newest gayflex dealy thats out is. I'm standing there telling cheif how it's a waste of money, or how instead of 3 treadmills, he could give me 2k and get 2 treadmills and I'll get a power rack, bench and some weight. This guy who's one of the dumbest mother fuckers I've ever met says "Well everybody isn't as strong as you" in a fucking smart ass tone. So by his measure, you have to already be strong to use free weights?

    I dunno, that's just the dumbest, most unlogical, uneducated, and thoughtless statement I've heard since at least earlier this morning.

    Pull the Chief aside and try to have a serious conversation with him.. he may not want to 'give' in front of the other fire fighters..

    Yes, I couldn't believe when I first heard it either, but some people do believe that you need a "base" (ibchristophersroutine) BEFORE using those big dangerous free weights, what the fucking fuck

    That sucks man. Im actually getting a pretty big part in deciding what our new "pt" gym gets for workout equipment. Our head of the PT department grabbed me, showed me what he was looking at and the first thing he asked me was "so what kind of power rack does your gym have?"

    do those things do anything at all? I tried them once (when I was alone in the gym :hsugh:) and still felt like a total fucktard doing it. Max weight and I couldnt tell if I was working a muscle or wearing out my hip joint.

    man I hate that thing. there's one right behind the squat rack in my gym. If some hot bitch is onit fucks my attention up for obvious reasons.... but if there's some nasty bitch on it, it still messes with me. Kinda like a really bad car crash with lots of blood, I don't wanna look but I can't help myself.

    I think it was cressey that explained how it is totally useless to train stabilizing muscles like that in a linear supported fashion.

    Though he didn't mention the benefits of a hot girl in tight shorts training like that :yum:

    That sucks that you're in that situation. The Fire Houses down here have the best stuff money can buy. Plus, they have more weight equipment than cardio, but its because we steer them that way.

    well, you're talking about some pretty half assed dpt around here. Not all bad, but very country and very old school. Things are improving, just slowly.
