    So I drove 5 minutes from my house and went to Orlando Barbell's grand opening/deadlift+bench powerlifting meet.

    Anywho, the place is located in those types of strips where the door is sorta like a garage door..halfway between a warehouse and a storage depot (like a shurgard)..I didn't get to talk to anyone about joining since everyone was pre-occupied with the meet.

    There weren't too many guys pulling 400+, except for this one dude who had them load up 650 and picked it up like the bar was empty :eek3:

    i'm going back tomorrow to get some info and check the place out. :)

    Turn this thread into a flamewar and I'll take a giant shit on you (rebs).

    Sounds cool, I wish there was a place like that near me.

    It was nice, not what I expected. But I liked the weights, they have handles on them so they're easy to carry around :hs:

    I didn't get any pics, it's nothing special. Not as fancy as a normal gym, but doesn't look like the gym in the Ronnie Coleman vids either..

    True.. but not 5 minutes. I've said it before: it's like an hour drive one way, and it's like $100+/month. :hs:
