The Oval has 4 full power cages (with 3 platforms) and one half-rack of sorts, all open to the public. I think they have 4-5 more racks reserved elsewhere for personal training or special members.
Those who have been to the Oval in the past, like the end of last year, they'll know how it used to be even better. 4 full power cages side by side, all with bumper plates and platforms, where the stretching area is now. That is probably as close to gym heaven I've ever experienced.
Yep, that used to annoy me too. They took all 4 of those power cages and moved them downstairs to a private training-only section. They turned the area at the end into a huge stretching area. 2 cages were brought in and placed where the old stretching area used to be. Each cage has a platform. This is also where the half-rack is.
I don't understand why they couldn't have just left the stretching area where it was, and kept the 4 racks where they were. They could've just take those 3 new racks that were brought in and sent them straight downstairs to the private area. Why bother disassembling 4 racks then reassembling it...?
The upside is no private training is done upstairs in the public area now. The downside, IMO, is that because the squat racks are somewhat more accessible now, noobs are using them to do, um, beginner exercises. But I guess we all gotta share in this life, right? Whether it be the planet we live on, or the racks we squat in...
I havent seen a challenge in here for awhile, Furious pete is having a 25 rep BW contest if anyone records them selfs its 75 dollars at BB.com
Rules: 1. Must weight themselves on camera
2. Must show weight on plates
3. No Bouncing of barbell on chest. I rather you go to just before hitting your chest then bouncing off the barbell.
4. No lifting your ass off the bench. VERY IMPORTANT - Make sure that if you are lifting in a powerlifting style that your ass is CLEARLY on the bench during the entire video. I don't want to question a video, I want to make it a point blank win.
5. You can re-rack the bar as much as you want. Just make sure you lock out on every rep.
6. Must say at the beginning of the video that you are doing the Furious Fitness or Furious Pete Bench Press Contest.
7. Submit entries by June 1st, Good luck!
Fuck I wish I wasn't injured. I did 20 reps of 225 at bodyweight 200lbs a couple months ago.
