I think the toughest PL gym in the US is Hardcore Barbell of Baton Rouge, La. Westside would be way up in my top 10 though; along with NGBB in Georgia, and BAD in Texas.

Detroit Barbell Owned by Clay Brandenburg and JJ is a bad ass gym. There are a lot of private hardcore gyms that people arent aware of. I'm sure I could make a lot of M&F readers cry at my gym.

The only real gyms left are the ones people done really know about. I have trained at Donnie Thompson's Compound and Spuds commercial gym both are really hardcore places. After training there I built my own gym. I would say Westside is probably the toughest of them all. I hope to train there/visit one day. Look back to the September 2007 issue of flex it was dubbed the worlds most hardcore gym.

Westside is a reflection of those who train there. It has some cool equipment, but the #1 factor is the lifters and Louie.

If you are interested in a real gym. Feel free to give me a call anytime on my cell. We have most strongman equipment you can think of and anything a powerlifter could ever dream of. We are a key club so we are not open all the time.

I've lifted at Spuds a couple times. Wish I had more time to lift there more often.
