    LOL. In 8th grade I was more like 115.

    Also, I'm 161 now. Although once I get done with my cut I'll really probably be more like 135.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't correct people who are obviously doing things wrong. I'm just pointing out that if Dan Green can find problems with his own form, then if we ourselves scrutinized our own...

    That actually sounds really good if this is a corporate/chain gym type of place. At the Gold's franchise I work for you start at at 25%. 45% is the MAXIMUM you can earn, but you have to build up to...

    I'd like to do that as soon as possible but I'm not entirely sure how to go about it. Everything from finding a gym to train out of to marketing and getting clients is kind of a mystery to me.

    Agreed. I thought that sounded really bad.

    I actually think that the actual time that's spent in the gym is just a small fraction of what training a client is all about. There's also...

    Yeah, that's true. They want to make money. I don't think that has to mean that they don't actually care about the job they're doing though. I think the individuals who are running the organization...

    Well I went with the NSCA-CPT for my first certification, but I work for Gold's and I can pick up the Smart Fitness cert for $99. ($199 down but they refund $100 of it when you pass the test.)

    I guess you missed the word "effective" in my post. Effective has nothing to do with "arbitrary movements and rep ranges." I'd say to see my post above this one for further thoughts, but I will...

    At the end of the day though that still comes down to two things:
