"It’s infinitely easier to miss tough workouts for conveniently contrived emergencies, work requirements, and fun than it is to stick to it and do all the work necessary to reap maximal fitness gains"

Think of this quote the next time you read through the posts when Coach prescribes a long run. Good article.

I was on the elitefts site and saw this tshirt for sale:
http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...d=327&pid=1816

From the shirt:
"If I owned a gym:
Chalk -- Yes
Obscenities -- Yes
Cell Phones -- No
Curls in the Squat rack: F*** NO"

So, NSFW.

I would add that dropping weights would be recommended in my gym, not a reason to kick me out. Again.

nothing angers me more in the gym than waiting for the solitary Squat rack for some princess (male or female) to get done with curls.

Andy, I love it!!!!!

Chuck, scare them with Zercher's. I did that to a bunch of, how shall I say this, "frat boys" whilst in law school. Got 315 off the floor Zercher style and squatted it that way for a set of 10. Absolutely nuts, nearly tore me up. But the "boys" let me use the rack when I went heavier. One of them said, "Dude, pleeaassse use the rack." I'll never forget it.

All the best,
Arden

Ha, Arden, that's hilarious. i can't even DL 315 for a single...never mind zercher-style.

great article, andy. i love kilgore and rippetoe's no-nonsense attitudes towards training and gym-going. if only we had more gym-owners like that...

If you can believe this, I never see anyone doing curls in the aquat rack at my gym. If you think about it, in order to do squat rack curls you'd have to be using the 45 lb. bar plus plates on it,right? Well, not too many guys at my gym can do that. Ugh.
