The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Monster Barbell Gym is here!

    I'm as excited as a kid at Christmas! The building arrived Friday about 2:00pm. We put in the initial equipment and finished about 10:00pm...then we had a Miller Light to toast it in! I've been arranging and re-arranging things most of the day today and getting things ready for our 1st workout Monday at 7:00pm. We'll break it in benching then! I can't wait!!!

    It will be a work in progress for a while til we get it like we want it, but it will be fun watching it as it develops. If Pam will help me with posting pics, I'll post some up at different stages. Took some of the empty building after it was set up yesterday!

    Got some more equipment to go pick up in La. soon, but we can bench, squat, and deadlift along with dumbell work for now. Bottom line is 'The Gym Is Born'! I'm going to love watching it grow up!!!

    We're a bit of a drive for you. Gadsden area (Rainbow City) about 4 miles off of the Gadsden Airport exit of I-59. We're not a commercial gym but we're open to powerlifters or lifters interested in powerlifting to come and see if we all 'get along' (LOL!) and have a similar mindset and want to train and hangout and compete together. Me and Josh and Tim had our 1st bench night in the gym tonight and it was great! Let me know if you want to come over from that far and we'd be glad for you to come and check it out! Right now we're training at 7:00pm Mon.-Wed.-Fri.

    Yea, you're right MM that would be a good haul for me. I thought maybe I-59 somewhere in Madison as in I-59 I-20. Thanks for the invite though.
