Oddly enough I have never heard of that gym, but you're only about 15 minutes from me. The gym any good?

I went to school at east meadow high school.

Well Xtreme Gym Farmingdale used to be Gold's
xtreme Gym Bellmore used to be Powerhouse.

They are iffy and bellmore is not always Powerlifting friendly but its super close to my house. I do most of my bench work and squat work @home so I make it work.

I went to Clarke so we are close. I live right down Newbridge Rd @ the E. Meadow/Bellmore Border. About 2min from Synergy

When do you train? AM/PM?

That's a sick total @180! We have some real strong, experienced guys lifting at World Gym. Monolift, comp bench, special bars, chains, etc. I have lifted for years with Chris Taylor, John Bernor, Shawna Medelson. Those are prob the most well known/strongest powerlifters on the Island. All great people, tons of knowledge/experience and just like to train hard and have fun. Great comraderie.

Sounds like an awesome lifting environment, would love to train with you guys sometime.

I think I might have been to a meet at your worlds gym. Shawna Mendelson was announcing during the meet, so I figure it probably was.

It was like 2 years ago I think. You had some really huge guy bench in the mid 600's raw.

Oh yea, that's the gym I go to. That guy was a total freak that nobody knew who he was. He just randomly showed up that day. I think he hit like mid-high 500's bench.

If remember correctly, you have a pretty huge strongman area in the back too.

I have been looking at switching gyms, if your gym is as awesome as it sounds, I will definitely have to check it out. 20 minutes is a little far, but it sounds like it would be worth it.

What time do you guys usually train, so I would know when to stop by?

I am nursing a cold but we should def train sometime soon.

I need a better training partner that understands shirt work lol . My current partner cannot wrap his head around a proper lift off (frustrating)

Ya, definitely hit me up sometime. I'm a raw lifter though, I might not be much better. I have never lifted with a geared lifter before.

I'm in Garden City South, have a basement gym with EFS 2x2 rack, Plate Loaded Lat Pull / Low Row, Back Extension, Floor GHR (on the way), bands, 160 lbs of chain, DB Handles, Yoke bar, Giant Cambered Bar, Football Bar (on the way), Jesup Power bar, beat up rack pull bar, band platform for Deadlifts. Looking to add a Reverse Hyper and possibly a rack monolift in the next year. I also have been known to train at World Gym and on occassion All Natural Gym in Lindenhurst. You can see some of the gym at youtube.com/ehubbsnyc. I train geared and raw. Best lifts 770, 475, 750 geared and 520, 350, 735 raw. I'm rehabbing from shoulder surgery now but would be interested in getting people together on a weekday night around 7 and/or a weekend at around 10:30 AM....
