so the new gym (2 years old) near me, had an open weekend...
i figured it cant be too bad going to a commercial gym

anyway i go there... all ok, all nice it is very polished etc. so as im leaving they want me to sign up to which i say:

-'i cant sign up somewhere without a squat rack'

i get 2 replies

YOUR LEGS ARE BIG ENOUGH

AND

A SMITH MACHINE IS MUCH BETTER THAN A SQUAT RACK/ POWER CAGE... YOU CAN DO MORE EXERCISES ON IT

you would think anyone setting up a gym would plonk atleast 1 squat rack in there...just because they surely know its a LEGAL REQUIREMENT

Problem is that the majority who spout that s**t think they are right!Roll-Eyes they'll probably want to charge you the earth for a PT session to teach you how to squat on a Swiss ball using the smith machine!!

they tried to convince me that u can do body weight squats on those vibrating plates and use 98% of my muscle

there were people in there with pts that were sitting on those ab balls bouncing up and down

I DONT KNOW WHY I EVEN TRY TO TRAIN IN THIS PLACES

IM ANGRY FOR DAYS
