    Im pretty much fucked in the equipment department for a while, the gym i have access too has db's to 100lbs:greddy:, a million machines, and a shitty smith. I hate the smith, but its the only way i can do deads right now unless i just grab the 100lb db's and do a million reps. Are these going to cause form restrictions or increase risk of injury?

    you should be able to do suitcase deadlifts with those DBs, at least until you find a new gym.

    My apartment "gym" has a busted treadmill and a stationary bike with no seat. Count your blessings.

    The reason you won't see a lot of apartment gyms with BBs is mainly liability. Since the area is largely unsupervised the complex doesn't want to be sued because some dumbass got himself pinned and killed under too much weight.

    I know it sounds retarded but thank the litigious society we live in.

    I've never seen someone deadlift on a smith before, but I'm imagining it in my head and it seems as if it would provoke an injury.
