    Upstairs is cardio and aerobics area. I go up there to stretch, do crunchies and take a walk around the track to see if any scenery is on the treadmills.

    I wish they had a dip station at my gym. I always go to a leg machine (where you tie a cable to your leg at the ankle) which has two parallel bars for people to stabilize themselves and I do dips off of those. Atleast my gym does have DBs up to 150 (or 140...I haven't really looked at the biggest ones yet).

    Rubber crap. I shouldn't complain though coz rubber doesn't hurt as much during a failure.

    As for the gym, it's in a very rich area of the southwestern suburbs. Some of the older men are quite built or healthy, but we don't have many brolies. Mostly yuppies in the weight rooms and baby boomers and attractive older golddiggers upstairs. Occasionally there will be some hotties and cool guys my age. The gym just west of the city has a better crowd, and I'll be there soon enough since I'm moving.

    FYI, this gym is the best Bally's in Minneapolis, and I'll miss it.

    Maybe its just consistency, but the rubber ones feel solid enough that I can go 5 lbs more without even noticing the difference.

    We have those same god damned cages at my gym. They suck cock because the holes for the catches are so far apart. And don't lie, you're the one that was doing the curls. :mamoru:

    Like I said, it's the nicest Bally's here. We have several of them, and there are some bad ones.

    I have to take the bar from the shoulder press bench and do my deadlifts there (barbell shoulder press isn't very popular for some reason). It's kinda sad, but I usually have lots of space.

    damn, that's a nice ballys. all the ballys here in NoVA are prolly 1/4 that size, no lie.

    well, the weight area is 1/4 that size. the rest is taken up by a pool, indoor track, etc.
