Was a blast, hard at first because I had no idea what I was doing with that bar. Diff a strong group of guys, and very similar to the gym I train at now, in the fact that everyone is there to work, not to bullshit.

Thanks! Guess I was 15lbs off on my weights, but doesnt really matter! No worries about talking, its the same way in my gym now. Great to meet you though. Couldnt make it out for bench day as father inlaw has found a house and we were trying to get as much of the paper work as we could done. Looks like middle of June I will be down for good.
