Saving this space for pics tomorrow. This place is freakin sweet. The most dungeon-like hardcore place to get strong you've ever seen. Right down to our new mascot - a bat, LOL. I will post a video up tomorrow and some pics of the new place. I am stoked.

The bat was awesome flying around while trying to unload. This place truly is the most hardcore dungeon like place I have ever seen. I kept waiting to trip over a decaying body. Once you get bit by one of those bats and those bat rabies start flowing, no amount of ammonia caps will be able to compare to the jolt you'll get from bat rabies. PRs will fall like dominos.

Best part - we found an old fireplace last night and a set of stairs that lead to God knows what. Haha - we'll end up finding a body or a homeless man will be asleep on our platform before this is all done.

Need to start a pool for:
1) Date the dead body is found;
2) Date the homeless guy is found asleep on the bench;
3) Date when the bat lands on someone;
4) Date when the bat bites someone;
5) Date when the bat has a weight dropped on top of it (this should come with a prize as well);
6) First time a pair of goth kids break in and are found having sex while on ecstasy;
etc.

My guess is this will all happen by the end of the year, except for #5 - that will be a tough one.

If they do that on the platform it will instill a rage in me that will cause me to grab the bat out of mid air and sic it on them.

It'll take more than that. While you were stuggling up to the honey, we were dogding bats and dropping thousands of pounds in plates across the floor because we couldn't get them out of the elevator. And I don't even lift with you guys.

So as we left, I stopped at teh gas station a block away to get a bottle of water. Walking into this place in front of me is a gal covered in tats with stilleto heals, huge hoop earrings, a shirt that looked like a bandanna just draped across her nipples and wearing shorts that only covered about a quater of her butt cheeks. So, if you get tired one day while working out, there seems to be some entertainment for hire close by.

And that will be the manliest feat of all time, after which the powerlifting gods will reach down and grant you the power to squat over a grand. To hell with the Karate Kid and catching a fly with chopsticks, catching the bat will come only to those destined for greatness.

The place is sick. It literally is in the belly of the beast. I wouldn't be the last guy to lock up at night.

Unfortunately, despite the sick surroundings, last night looked like a bad episode of the para-olympic gimp squad playing toxic-mold jenga (me excluded, of course). Ben of course locked himself in the freight elevator and all I know is, I wasn't present when plates went crashing off the ingenious device I'd engineered for transporting said plates. What's the saying? Give a man a cart, he'll haul your ****; but turn your head for a second, and he'll **** himself somehow.

That reminds me of the old Tuberculosis Hospital we converted over into a indoor Paintball field. Talk about a CREEPY ass place, lots of people died in that place and I dont care what anyone else says that damn place was haunted!!!

There was an old Autopsy room with a Drain in the middle of the floor for the blood. IKKKKK!!!! And it had a old Fridge in it with roller beds for the Dead folk. Well we had some Goth kids in helping us clean it out and those crazy asses climbed in the beds and slid into the fridge. CREEPY!!!

I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it. But man when it was cleaned out we had 3 floors of paintball fun. This place was HUGE!!!!!!

We also found the underground tunnel that ran from hospital out to the place where they burned the bodies. I was about 4 foot high and curved out under the parking lot so you could not see the other end. It had a long roller/conveyer belt thing for the bodies to ride on. We found so much old stuff in that place.

Here is a link to pics of it ~ VERY CREEPY PLACE!!!

Nice work on the tire! We've got a tire at the firehouse that gets beat on quite regularly. We found that wearing thick gloves really wears out your grip. $20 if you can kill the bat with the sledge.

i'll throw in $20. $20 more if you hit someone in the head at the same time, on accident.

those videos are badass. that gym is huge. i need an excuse to come to KC now.

you guys need to have monster mash playing in every one of your videos. when halloween rolls around, you should buy those fake bloody hands and legs and put them in random places.

or, just look hard, and use the real severed limbs you may or may not find, haha

Only one way to find out :)
somehow I seem to be doing fine despite being all about the later workouts myself.

conditioning sucks in the morning though with not very much food in me, but the ME stuff in the begining of the workout isnt too bad.

What about Ditka vs. Chuck Norris? :omg:


5:00 A.M.??? You guys are nuts. You belong in that condemned building. You need padded walls and straight jackets. :evillaugh:


I'll say one thing. Getting yourself used to going heavy early in the day should help you on meet day. I train at night, after a full day of work all week long. I have had 4-5 meals by that time and I feel good. When I train early on a Saturday or go to a meet I always feel different and it is probably because I have only had 1-2 meals by that time. That's why I want to start running meets that start at like 6:00 P.M. That would be sweet. Enough rambling.

Back to the weird stuff....

Ben Moore
08-20-2008, 04:43 PM
