Nice work, Alan! Pause squats are the shizzle as Hazzard would say.

Yeah, play the save money in the long run card for sure. But, it's a longer run than you think! In my experience, it was cheaper than a year's membership to set up originally, but I keep buying more stuff every time I get an itch and see a deal! HaHa!

Well that's a bit crap to hear Alan, stupid gym. Let me guess, too much noise from deadlifts? It's time to show her who's boss mate and get in that home gym

My local gym costs me a bundle but it's worth it since no one every gets cautioned for noise. There is one dude that deadlifts fairly heavy (almost 400 for reps) but he drops the bar between every rep. It makes a crazy amount of noise but he has never been spoken to about it and probably never will. There are guys who let out huge screams and grunts during sessions but no one ever complains which is great.

If/when I move back to Ireland in a proper home, I'll definitely be getting in a home gym and the missus already knows

It's also funny how the Crew gym has better equipemnt than a commercial gym and it costs way less. It's used by sports teams, personal trainers, and the Crew. There is not even a sign outside the warehouse it is located in. Maybe you can find somethiong similar in your area.

Nice looking session there as well!
Thanks Jim , yeah its all about the noise….apparently , its off putting for other members…

Any complaints about squat noise? Grunts? I thought I heard something over here.
