As a precursor, I weigh 170 and I'm 5'9, so I think I'd be in the 77kg class, right? Anyways, through my reading I've seen a lot of articles saying to compete kind of soon...

Question Why are Iranians so strong?

training in Las Vegas

Other than Broz, are there any other facilities that I could train at while in Vegas, near the main strip? Preferably not a Crossfit either, only just because they tend to have odd drop in hours.
