"The" Gym Question
 
Dear Mr. Steve,

My gym does not have a ______ (insert any standard, useful, necessary piece of equipment here - barbell, squat rack, dumbbells, Olympic plates, a roof). What different exercises should I use?

Answer: Find a new gym.

Or the other side...

"My gym only has a Smith machine, what should i do with this, instead of the exercises you perscribed..."

Same Answer :)

Carl.

this is true.

I see so mony posts (not on here :cool:) where people are complaining that their gym has no squat rack/power cage/dumbbells over 30kg even one who said there were no Barbells...

I just wanna scream "THATS NOT A F**KING GYM, IDIOT"

It kills me when I receive questions from folks who train at a gym without barbells and dumbbells. I had no clue gyms like this existed.

I think it's safe to say that most of us (98-99%) are within 20-30 minutes of a gym that does have useful equipment.

If you can't afford a gym...sell your CDs, gaming system, or your underwear on Ebay. If you don't have a car, walk. If you are the 1% who lives in North Dakota, spent $1000 on a home gym.

If you have no money or gym, push your car and lift rocks. Then do pullups, dips, situps and pushups.

I dont know what sort of gym wouldnt have a cage, a rack and the other essential things. I have 4 gym within a 10 minute drive that has all those things.

my gym has a squat/power rack and smith machine but until recently,after days of hounding the owner,didnt have a proper bench or leg press.benching inside the power rack was annoying.

.

One of the advantages of living in the US. My gym has a squat rack, but no power rack. I'd dearly love the use of one. The nearest gym with one, as far as I'm aware, is a 40 minute drive. I'd buy a power rack for the house, if there was room.

That's the rural south west for you.
