    Spotted yesterday: some dude doing a barbell complex with 55 pounds. The exercises included

    1) Behind the back squat
    2) Deadlift (55 pounds!)
    3) Side bends
    4) Side lunges
    5) Rows

    And some other stuff I didn't see. However, the real gem was the exercise he started off with: he bridges on the floor off of the top of his head and proceeds to do a set of floor presses. I was flabbergasted.

    He then does the whole thing again with 45 pounds. I guess 55 was too intense to do twice.

    He had a little sheet of paper that presumably listed his routine. I'm convinced he found a "10 stupidest things to do with a 55lb barbell" list online and decided it would make a good complex. The worst part is, I think that guy is a trainer at the gym. I'd hate to see what he has his clients doing.

    This is actually an old strongman trick. Not that I recommend this or think that a guy DLing 55 pounds should do these.

    No, no, it's cute and charming and funny when girls hit guys. Especially when it's a kick to the balls, tee-hee. Girl power!

    EDIT: Seriously, though, I'm curious as to why she felt the need to do that.

    I'm torn between "bitch should have been taken to a back alley and beaten with a barbell" and "dude had it coming, you don't do half-squats, it displeases the barbell gods"

    Heh, like I mentioned earlier, i couldn't see that link. My computer is hooked up to a 32in TV, so sometimes the blacks and blues look about the same. I asked because one of my friends trained there. He liked it a lot, but mentioned some of the same things you did about the "clientele". He might even be back there again, since he recently move back to Chicago (again).

    We train out more on the west side of Chicago (Aurora, Oswego) at Ernie Frantz's gym and the Power Pit. We go down there every couple of weeks.

    Isn't Frantz's where Lilliebridge and Hickson train?
