It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

SkinnyPupp usually i agree with your statements (the common misconception of fats NOT making you fat in particular) and they are insightful, but I think most would agree here you come off a little brash when sharing your opinion
Yeah I realized that a few posts later and took it back..

bench has dropped off lately. been focussing more on shoulders and deadlifts lately.

incline bench still repping 2 plates plus a 10 per side.

ok, just used my SocialShopper coupon for Steve Nash Fitness World (NOT eligible for sports club as I had originally thought) and am thoroughly disappointed at my first real "gym" experience having worked out at community centres all my life.

Probably just gonna go there on chest days.

Gripes:
  • Weights strewn all over the place
  • Weights not put back in proper place, mixed and matched (I am OCD by wanting the same brand plates on both sides)
  • People not wiping down their benches
  • Bicep curl & honger central
  • People stepping right in front of you to grab weights while you are doing a set and watching your form in the mirror
  • Only one un-assisted squat rack. Being a dedicated gym I would have at least expected at least two
  • Shitty parking lot

Pros:
  • Dedicated incline bench
  • Dedicated decline bench

Having the weights all mixed up and shit like that is horrible! Totally the gym's fault too.

Only one squat rack, I can relate to that

Pretty much everybody did that at Fitness World it seemed like. Guy just left a barbell with plates in the middle of the ground after his deadlift and walked away.

I wouldn't even bother to begin with. In the end its the staff who should be looking over everyone and putting weights away if left alone for a long period of time.

They actually suspend members (@ Golds) for a week or two if the weights are seen tossed and left alone or not put away after use.

fitness world sucks... steve nash having ownerships over the fitness world is more for the cash and not for quality.. its junk. unless they start doing a facelift to the fitness worlds (in terms of their workers.. it all starts from there), it will always be the same.. whether it is a new one or the ghetto one on kingsway...

as for steve nash clubs... i hear they are very nice, and a lot of eye candy, and very persistent/incompetent workers/sales (how does 1 person pay more for the same deal from the same sales????). And since they had the 20 dollar add on to those who are fitness world members to use steve nash club, i feel sorry for those original steve nash members...

i dont really care about the gym or the ppl in it, for me its
-Squat rack 2 or more
- all types of incline benches
- dunbells up to 125- 150
- lots of attachments for triceps biceps
- deadlift station or platform
- allowed to use chalk

I really could care less about the people that workout there, that does not get in MY WAY of having a kick ass workout, i have no problem of going up to someone and asking them how many sets left or can u put your fucking weights back asshole, i always call out assholes that leave there plates on the bench, i know its just a 45 and change but that is not the point, if everyone put three weights away we would not have this problem

my absolute favorite thing in the world to do at the gym is when theres a pack of 5 guys doing wrist curls or shrugs in the deadlift area thinking they are all hardcore and fucking around more than lifting weight. i ask how long they are going to be and then keep walking by so they know im there. they think they are legit and then me and jeffh roll up and deadlift 350+ and their jaws drop. usually half of the group ends up watching us lift, and the smallest guy, usually the one whos not a cocky fuck, sometimes asks a question or makes a comment.




on an unrelated note im going to start getting shirts made with slogans on the back like "talk less, lift more" "shut up and lift" and "stop doing curls in my squat rack"

what is your guys routine for biceps? currently ive been doing

Concentration Curl
Barbell Curl
Reverse dumbell curl
then occasionally toss in the dumbell curl

is there any specific ones i should be doing more than others? typically i'll get about 3 sets each in at 10-15 reps basically until failure for most of them
