Yeah, this ties into Shugart’s thread on Hardcore home training.
I was reading over at the Westside site in the archives about the distinction between a franchise and a gym. A franchise is a place where they sell brand x protein powder, tanning sessions, spandex clothing, and a host of other shit that don’t make a damned bit of difference.
A gym is a place where PRs are temporary and attitude is everything. Deadlifting is permitted and you can use as much chalk as you like.
I for one got tired of the posers, the fagoos and their gay ass rituals, and personal trainers who passed out dirty looks any time you asked for a spot.
I lift at home. I agree with Chris 100 % - Hardcore Lifting has gone underground.
Anyone else lift at home?
