Lame, yes, smart, probably... most major injuries come from those two pieces of equipment. Snaps, like alot of other 24 hour fitness pop ups, are concerned with liability and making sure they can minimize claims. This is a step in the right direction if anything for a franchise like this.

One is from my college which I get anyway. I use that 95% of the time. It's the 5% of the time when the gym decides to close 6 hours early (I train evenings) or close for a stupid basketball game across campus, or otherwise screw me over, that I use my secondary membership @ snap to train (it's 24 hours so it's especially good when my gym decides to close early). I can manage to train all body parts good enough there except for legs. For legs, I need a squat rack and a real (plate loaded) leg press. There's no way around that.

Its a "Snap" policy... no barbell benches, no squat racks. My friend is opening one in Mauston, my hometown, so he gave me the lowdown. Two memeberships!? I've never heard of anyone having two... thats hardcore!


If Snap were as concerned about liability, they'd yank out all the Smith machines, too! :D

I was glad that at least the Anytime Fitness chain that started to move to this area has SOME that offer better stuff. The one I go to for my late-night workouts has a power rack that's not the greatest, but it gets the job done. And, I'm in the same boat as Josh - I've got another membership, but it's at Bally's, and after all this time it's just $100/year so I can't let it slip away for that price. More equipment, better equipment, but those cursed octagonal plates drive me nuts :D

I'd always wondered about the Ho-Chunk center - I've seen the billboard for it before, but didn't know if it was a quality place or not. Hopefully they'll have what you need there!

Good news, I've linked up with an inside connection to the local high school weight room... they have a squat rack :D ... tomorrow should be interesting. I was just at Ho-Chunk teaching a lifeguard course, popped in on the weightroom and saw they have two new benches and inclines... free weight squat rack is still there... I'll probably change memberships come summer, but for now the highschool weightroom will do fine for leg days.

Got an unbelievable quad pump tonight, yet I felt weak like last night... I think I'm dehydrated, felt some onsets of cramps near the end of the workout. I'm starting a new thread with my excuses.

The holidays have been pretty busy, I've been travelling alot and visiting family. I did some shovelling and I suffered a hairline rib fracture, apparantly I forgot that running while shovelling snow is not a good idea. The shovel stopped on a crack, I continued forward at a high rate of speed and the handle speared me in the right rib. Its been almost 2 weeks now and its still very tender. I haven't missed too many workouts, actually only 2... my weekend workouts that consist of core muscles...abs, are too painful. Performing movements that expand and contract my rib cage are pretty painful, I'm lucky I can get dumbbells up on the bench, pushing and raising my arms over my head expand the cage and yeah you get the point. Anyways, progress has been minimal lately, weight as fluctuated greatly, but I'm staying positive and hope to heal up soon. Taken out by a shovel... what tha...!?
