  1. Hey, so in the next month I plan to relocate from Delaware to Philadelphia. All of a 45 minute move but I was just wondering if anyone on here is from there and knows any good gyms to go to? Are there any places that are hiring? I've been doing management for awhile but trying to get out of Wawa with my fresh start. Any help is greatly appreciated. Just looking to really network out with some like-minded people.

  2. I have never once made progress in 24 years of training whenever I trained everyday!!!

    I find I need to have rest days and I don't train more than about an hour at a time. Right now I am making great gains at 41 training 4 days a week - M/T, Wednesday off and then T/F with the weekend off except maybe some cardio or tennis.


    Try lowering your volume and frequency and concentrate on compound movements.

    Some of my best results are training 3 or 4 days a week. In college I had good results training 5 days a week but could have easily done 4 days or less with the right program.

    This is the best advice right here.

  3. So Planet Fitness is supposed to be a "Judgement Free Zone", but it's ok for them to judge and exclude the huge muscular guys who just want to lift weights?
    Yeah. I think their business model is to subscribe as many people as they can who aren't actually going to use the membership. The fat lazy people sign up because they know they need to workout and are comfortable that there won't be anyone there who is actually fit. They never actually go once signing up but are too lazy to cancel because the monthly cost isn't too much.


    Place literally is the worst. So busy. No barbells. 60lb max on dumbells. Place is mostly for people who don't know any better. It's great for people who are just looking to be in shape but to do any more than that and you're not going to get it.


    Are the VBBF shirts still available anywhere?

    Notes: If anyone can give me a name for that last exercise, it'd be greatly appreciated. I don't know anything more than that I've seen people do it and decided to give it a spin. Also it was my first time doing a deadlift. Way sore after doing it, figuring once my muscles start adjusting I can make some good gains. No leg day because I've been doing a lot of biking but starting it again next week regardless.
