Quote from 70footer
we have the rule just because unlike when I was competing , I used to drop 400lbs from over head , just to prove who I was...obviously I grew up a bit ...
but there are actually women that are members now , back in the day there was usually 1 or 2 women members total....but now we probably have 50% of our members are women.
BUT , Being who I am , I , unlike most gym owners have a real respect and even a want ,to see guys get real strong, but the guy dropping weights , normally he just really wants to intimidate other members , and have them notice him...so we don't need him....but we LOVE the guy that is really focused and really wants to work hard and LIFT heavy weight ,not just drop it ...we have a member currently that makes almost no noise or show , but puts all his energy into his lift, and damn it if he doesn't bench over 500 almost weekely. Throwers should be the same..focused and determined to do all out effort without a show , the weight room is not where our contest will be decided anyway.
HEY I HOPE ANY THROWER IN THE AREA OR COMING TO THE BAY AREA WILL KNOW THERE IS A VERY SERIOUS HUGE GYM HERE , OWNED AND OPERATED BY A THROWER WHERE THEY ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!
