      I used to go to a planet fitness when I lived in Northern Virginia. Honestly I don't think the Siren ever went off. They only had 3 benches though. The gym I went to had 1 squat rack so I usually hogged it for 45 minutes while everyone else waited. Little room though. I was basically had to move around and do dead lifts by the cardio section. But hell 10$ a month, and Pizza once a month, what's not to like. The Sport and Health club I go to now charges almost as much in a month than I was paying for a year at PF. The S&HC though I go to now has some fine booty. Planet Fitness had leaky roofs and a water fountain that was either warm or not working. There's nothing more discouraging than doing some Military presses with water dripping in your eye.

          No AQ, we all know why you ride bikes. So you can grunt the three hours during that bumpy ride. Not afterward :)

          What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
          they get smoked.

              • What are some foods that have lots of good calories in them? Take into consideration for me that I'm vegetarian, no fish either or eggs ahha, oh and I don't eat onion or garlic even if its processed in food.

                So far I found Brown rice and Broccoli, and Potatoes and Broccoli to be my meal after working out, anything else?

                I need help taking in 3500-4000, and I avoid junk food, and sugar based.

                    Try not throwing your weight when your hang/power cleaning a **** load of weight... After your final rep, all you want to do is get that weight off of you. I usually just drop mine, but if I had a bad set, I'll throw it.

                      Why are you a vegetarian?

                      Nothing is better than steak/beef and potatoes after a good lift.

                            As for grunts... I usually have small grunts doing most of my lifts when I do heavy weight, but for squats, sometimes I really let one out if I'm doing a heavy set.

                            I don't know why, but it seems to help you.

                              I just don't understand how anyone can deprive themselves of the awesomeness of cow, pig, chicken, or lamb... It's mind boggling.
