No more deadlifts.

As I was training chest, as per international rules of Monday, I noticed the deadlift area had been rearranged and the bar was missing.
I asked the guy behind the counter why.
I then found myself having to explain to him what deadlifts were. I wish I was joking, but its true.
His only response was sorry.
He doesn't know why and the owner won't be in till later.
Tempted to do them anyway and see if they kick me out.

The judge would agree with me
suspended sentence FTW.

I have heard about a mecca of a gym that serves food, has purple and yellow equipments, costs only $10 a month, and has a meathead alarm that kicks out all of the jacked and swole dudes.

People who rate threads are stupid. Clear evidence is all the dumb threads that get 5 stars....I could post a thread titled "I just took a dump. Discuss", and it would get 5-stars.

Bien sur! But I only give one star to anything CBB writes, mainly because of his speling.

I must be really lucky. Three gyms in this town.

1) owned by an IFBB pro (woman), most of the competitors in town work out there.

2) brand new gym with awesome equipment 2 deadlift platforms and 3 squat racks

3) a worlds gym. More of a fashion show also where the real heavy juicers work out but great equipment.

All 3 allow dead lifting, don't care about grunting, heavy lifters are not only welcome but appreciated.

My gym did the same thing. I bought a power rack and it's been the best investment of my life.

Agree with this, best investment I made as well. The gym I went to was pretty big but didn't even have a squat cage/rack
and the heaviest dumbbells where 40 kg (88 lbs). Plus many types of bars and handles for pulling and rowing where missing.
They had a suggestion box for customers to give feedback on what could be improved - I kept adding notes to that dam box but
nothing ever came of it. :(

Then a new gym opened and and I was excited about it - went to the opening "showing" - they had 10 billion
cardio machines and a just a tiny area for real weights. But all good now with free weights and pulling machine at thome.
Now I am contemplating getting a membership to a local swimming place for cardio. Just that whenever I been there in the past
it has been hard to swim freely as often older ladies are in the way, just kind of floating in my lane.

Crap I've been doing legs on Mondays for years.

There's only three members at my gym. Me, myself and I.
The only complaint is that the owner won't buy any good equipment. Keeps saying "there's no money coming in".
Then I get mad at myself and kick me out for a few days.

I quit mine and got the essentials at home instead. much prefer it and making better progress. there was not 1 single squat rack in the gym I was going to anyhow, it was mostly cardio and machines with the actual equipment pushed to the corners. =/

I would def do them anyway, this opens up the potential of got kicked out of my gym for deadlifting thread :D

This would achieve hardcore status, although you might take a hit if this occurs on bench day per international rules.

Did the deads.

I took the bar from the incline bench.

I did get a few looks but nobody said anything.

Danger face and headphones work most of the time. Too bad not all the time.

And yes, I did put the bar back when I was finished.

That's good, now you don't have to quit!
I took the bar from the incline bench today to do my hip thrusts.
Nobody gave me any looks...except for one guy, but that's probably because I hit him in the butt with the bar.
I also put the bar back when I was finished.
yay, mission accomplished.. :)

Why don't you build a home gym? Then you don't have to deal with anyones bull****.

cowboybiker
05-17-2014, 06:00 AM
I've thought about a home set up but my garage is my office and I store material for work in it.

Gym membership is only 20 a month. I locked in when they first opened up.
Its a hole in the wall but I like it.
There's several other gyms nearby, and if I gotta pay more to do deads, then so be it.
