How many of you train by yourself in a commercial gym?
Over the holidays we went up north to spend some time with family and I went back to the gym I started at back in highschool. It's a pretty big commercial gym with fair equipment but nothing necessairly intended for powerlifting.
I wasn't at a complete loss for what to do, however it did make me realize that getting to the point I'm at in powerlifting would be much much more difficult were I not at Westside.
Without the right training partners, equipment (bars, benches that are 12" wide etc) and atmosphere it's hard to be super successful I think.
However I know some people do it.
