I started going to a gym in late January. I found stronglifts and started lifting free weights about the end of February and stopped using machines. I was a happy camper, the gym was right down the street. I was progressing right along and the staff was super helpful and friendly. Then without warning I went to workout on a Wednesday and they had locked the doors. Bankruptcy Chapter 7. I found another gym within a couple of days and they are friendly and helpful but its bigger and there is no rapport yet. Their power rack is jammed in a little corner and is a little cramped. But I am committed.
Medhi the guy that has stronglifts.com said that 5X5 has been around for a century. So, yeah, its nothing new.
