After my 2009 competition I had surgeries to deal with (aside from the obvious, for those that know me) and it took a while to get back to the gym. Its been up and down ever since. Then my gym was bought out by big corporate and it sucks. They are screwing everyone and all the decent staff left. So I decided I would do P90X to build up my strength and endurance and get a good foundation to build on. I do want to compete again I just don't know when or where. I will add to my diet. I eat clean but never enough. So I'm adding some shakes and bars to get the calories and protein I need to build muscle. I am trying not to over think things and just get it done.
I had the same experience, corporate gym from hell, too many machines, conflict-oriented staff and managers.
Right now I'm at a YMCA and it's very good.
