I have made it clear that I will continue to train for Strongman and power lifting, and if it is too much of an issue for them, they can cancel my contract. But for the day, I wanted to get my work in, so I left.
And 495 is only 10 pounds away from my all time PR. I was just pissed off so hit something heavy.
I salute you for standing up for all deadlifters. That gym should go hang their head in shame. LtL had a similiar experience at a gym he had a day pass in over christmas while visiting someone.
