    gym just opened, its called strengthworks gym. its awesome, its strongman/PL based. its got stones right not. but will have logs, tires, sleds etc soon enough. also has chains and bands, board press, adjustable boxes, and a DL platform. chalk is encouraged. kevin ni might stop by regularly. the AZ rep of APF is going to host events here. its half a mile from my house too. ive been watching it be built cause its right next the place i go to AA at and probably wouldnt of known about it if i didnt go there (yes, i got in trouble and have to go to AA). the dude that runs it is a young guy, ex-marine. hes going to keep adding more and more stuff. also play harder music, such a change from shitty college gym and lifetime fittness.

    DB's go up to 150lbs currently, they will eventually go to 200lbs.

    today was the first day, it just opened, no one was in there with us but the owner. but there are going to be some big powerlifters there. there are going to be a few 600+ benchers there and some lifting crews that will be there. kevin nee will be there, im sure you know who he is. hes going to be having strongman comps and APF comps there.

    Shit the 24 hour fitness i go to has rubber db's.. I couldn't give a fuck less because I'm not doing DB's at the moment...



    What pisses me the fuck off is that edged plates.... every time I set/drop down the bar from DL's my shit gets all crooked and it totally fucks me up.

    Lets say you are doing chest with em....when you even touch them together...them song a biatches bounce. It used to mess me up bad in the beginning, Ive gotten used to them but still. You have to be careful, you can get injured.
