Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

My friend will invite me to hang out at his Planet Fitness every now and again to run the treadmills and I had to watch 5 guys all patting each other on the back for doing presses and deadlifts on the smith machines. Normally I wouldn't think anything of it, but the fact that it was 5 guys, all from the looks of them probably on one of the local college sports teams made me cringe.

Either I'm slacking or I need to be on the lookout for this guy in the games.
I am surprised he was allowed to to that weight and movement at a globo

Seven years later, and this thread is still going. Kudos to the guy who started it.

This was one of the first threads I read on this board... And posted in. Too much mind boggling stuff happened at the campus gym at UW-Milwaukee.

The thread isn't as lively as it once was, but I must admit a certain bit of "pride" in having started a thread with such longevity. It was never my intent, but it's fun to see it still around.
