    I've been going to the university rec center for the last year and it's alright, kinda small weight room and a lot of tools but good equipment.

    I googled local gyms and checked out this place I didn't even know existed after living here for 3 years. It's in a part of town that I just by chance had never been to but less than a mile away, dumbbells to 150 lbs (rec center went up to 120 lb), 4 squat racks, like 7 benches, 3 incline benches, all kinds of racks and platforms and shit.

    Best part... if you have a student ID, active or not (told him I just graduated), completely free enrollment and $20/mo :bowdown:

    Dude gave me a free 2 week pass and said let him know if I want to sign up.

    I wish another gym was nearby my campus. The student rec centers are just too small

    You know that reminds me of the time I went to my local Gold's Gym to get a membership and the lady at the counter asked me "So how long is your wingspan?" I told her 74" and she said "That's too long we don't let faggots who half rep their benches come in here and disrespect our fine establishment." I called her a bitch and said I just gained 80lbs of lean muscle and I didn't care about strength so fuck you and your gym. I found this local place thats awesome it has all these squat racks and lots of benches and best of all they don't care if I only go to 90 degrees or even if I only go to like 30 degrees I'm the most jacked and tallest bro in the gym and everyone is jealous of my steroid triceps. Theres even this sweet glory hole in the steam room and I'm making all kinds of new friends!

    I guess Ive been spoiled at OSU our main rec facility has 12 squat racks 12 flat benchs 3 incline 3 decline, ghr pair of leg presses pair of hack squats plus almost any piece of equipment outside of a monolift and a reverse hyper. only downside is the dbs only go up to 100 but the other 3 gyms go up to 150.

    my friend who interviewed at OSU said the exact same thing about the gym - 12 benches. thats just insane, we only have 4 here. but you even have multiple gyms up there.

    One time this group of fat guys (I think they were powerlifters) came in and started bench pressing to 90 degrees only they were using pieces of wood to stop the bar. I said "you don't need to do that shit, watch this!" I slammed six shots of jager and chased that with a 40oz of King Cobra then I proceded to knock out a quick set of 225 stopping when my arms were parallel for maximum chest development (If I didn't have an 80" wingspan I'd bench over 500 for reps). It's not easy for us tall guys to bench press but don't be a pussy and use boards! After that I did some cardio in the sauna with my buddy Steve (he's a bear). Gotta burn of the calories from last nights kegger, I drank two cases of bud light, a box of wine, and three fifths of vodka but I made it to the gym the next day and I'm still the tallest and most jacked bro there. Although theres this black guy that came in claiming he was the biggest but I threw a beer bottle at him and he ran away. You gotta be hardcore if you wanna be swole like me bro. I also got this sweet new R2-D2 shirt that I'm going to cut the sleeves off of and wear to the next comic book convention that comes to town.
