There is danger of losing randomness. Be careful. Be very careful.

I'm such a rebel. Playing grabass in the serious threads, but getting on topic in the off topic. :cry:

Milk is for babies. Real men drink beer.

I visited the most amazing gym this morning. I had no idea it existed.

Warehouse gym. No traditional machines. A Reverse Hyper and GHR - i've never even seen one in the flesh! Bands, chains, specialty bars, a prowler!!!!! Lot's of racks, a DL platform, chalk bucket, and a couple of very smart trainers running it. The one I never met is certified in loads of things including but not limited to - Westside Barbell, Poliquin, Sports Massage, plus all the usual that are 'required'.

They showed me their bookshelf to 'recommend' some reading for me - Bompa, Zatsiorsky, Siff, Gray Cook, etc. I was pleased to point out a lot of books i've already got, and read (i've not read all the books i've got). They have print outs (written all over and clearly used!) of 5-3-1, Built Like a Badass, Under the Bar, Stonger, and more. They're sending me stuff and i'll bhe sending them stuff.

On the walls there's white baords with peoples numbers on them. Also whiteboards with band and chain percentages worked out for a quick reference.

I actually got changed to train but we ended up chatting for 2 hours (weirdly, this is a client of my day job, nothing to do with me as a trainer or even just a lifter). I had to get up before god, too, and couldn't spend much longer there. I'm going back into train with them and get assessed. I'm very excited about this. In my gym, I have no one to truly critique me. The best I have is my main training partner and beginners who I have 'educated' myself for what to look for. But it's not ideal. I need someone to kick my a$$. I need someone better than me both physically and mentally, and this gym seems to have it. I hate saying stuff like that in fear of sounding like i'm boasting but, it's not so much a reflection on me but more the gym i normally train in! I can't wait to lift at this place.

p.s When in a pint glass and viewed from the top, beer looks just like milk! Same thing!

Yip!

Their site will be going live anytime now, it's http://www.thevarsitygym.co.uk/

Just a holding page at the moment.

(Hopefully ok to post that? technically, I'm doing marketing for them but that's not why I posted the link)

If you know where Parkhead is in the Eastend, it's in an industrial estate just next to Parkhead (Nuneaton Ind estate).

Maybe not as exciting as finding a new gym but I found a new record (new to me). It's a bootleg of a concert 20 years ago.

Eric Burdon and Robbie Krieger - Detroit Tapes (1990)

It's available for free download from a number of sites. It will blow your socks off. I found it here: http://american-prayer.blogspot.com/200 ... troit.html

Track 8 is a tribute to Elmore James. Unbelievable energy.
