    I got a membership today at Powerstation Gym while I'm back home for the summer. It was on Elite's old gym list. The place is awesome.

    At first, I walked in and they only had one power rack, but great powerlifting benches with bands and chains at every station and racks around each bench for pin pressing and I saw that DB's went up to 200. While impressed with that, I was pissed that there was only one run down rack and no place to really deadlift.

    Then I found the back room, which has 3 monolifts, platforms, reverse hyper, GHR's, etc... I was in heaven. I got super pumped to be in a gym with the equipment that I want.

    After my workout was over, I talked to the owner about any powerlifters they have and he said that there was a group of 6 guys that powerlifted, one of which qualified for the WPO Worlds at the Arnold this past year who goes by the name "Smitty". And that he would talk to them about getting me in to train with them. So hopefully that pans out.

    Just thought I'd brag to my powerlifting broly's about my new place. Hopefully I can finally start to get strong. :x:

    Yeah. That's what I'm hoping. I've wanted some strong training partners/mentors for a while now.
