    After 3 months off I'm getting back in the gym this afternoon. Feelsgoodman

    edit: and LOL @jarude bet that shit hurt.

    Edit 2: Holy shit just signed up at a new gym that's 2 min from my apt. Could even run there if i wanted the cardio. No joining fee since it's "back to school" time. Payed for 1 year up front for $165 after tax... $13.75/mo for all of this. :slayer::slayer:

    Still looking for a gym around White Plains, NY for this coming weekend. It's not looking promising.

    EDIT: Looks like there's a New York Sports Club in White Plains. Any opinions, anyone? I'm going to call tomorrow to see if I can just pay per use while I'm there.

    I don't think so. Last install I went on was 12-14 hour days, just enough time to grab meals before bed. I'm planning on getting out there some time probably in the spring, though, just for vacation.

    Finally back in Virginia. The final damage is 4 pounds lost during my 4 week rotation and a noticeable amount of strength. Will be trying to gain it back while I'm here for the next 6 weeks. Stocked up on peanut butter so should be pretty easy.

    Is Equinox usually a decent gym? Firm sending me on overseas trip in September, I get to stay @ a 5 star hotel with a equinox chain. Should bring squatting shoes?

    Doesn't this already have a real name? Muscle dysmorphia. Bigorexia is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

    I feel like Lane Norton would probably have a good quote in reply to that article. Something like screaming "OBSESSED IS HOW NOBODIES WHO WOULDN'T SACRIFICE TO WIN VIEW THE DEDICATED."

    Ive never seen anyone deadlift with such a wide grip, why does he do this? Seems like it would be very uncomfortable
