  • guy told to stop deadlifting in my gym

    I workout at golds,,,they hired 2 new gm's (fired the long time GM) about 2 weeks ago. This is a pretty hard core old school gym. Today a guy who has lifted there for a while was doing his deads with 700lbs or something (alot of weight) and banging it on the floor. I never lifted that much but id assume that much weight is going to bang on the floor i dont know what he is supposed to do. He was minding his own business doing his deads and the 2 new gm's walked up to him and told him he couldnt do that. Not sure of the whole story.

    Wow,,i can see planet fitness,,,,but golds???

    Interesting how logic can somehow be lost in these situations.

    I'm guessing the guy's been DL'ing 600+ in there for years. If the floor's messed up under the mats, does it matter if the mats are not irregular or a danger in any way?...

    Do they know that 700lb would be significantly more damaging than say 400lb or was it that he was just dropping the weight?...

    Either way, sad to hear about another hard-core gym slipping away...

      The same thing happened at the Golds in my city a couple of years ago. Anyone who lifted heavy and made lots of noise received their walking papers, they did alot of people really dirty.

        That's a bunch of bullshit, but honestly, coming from Golds, the place that took down Arnolds posters after all of his years of business and advertisting there...I'm not too shocked. Golds Gym Fitness Club.
        …Time is so precious….and you need to ask yourself, what are you going to do today but more importantly, you need to ask yourself – how are you going to do it?

              You've got to stand up for yourself in those situations. I had someone tell me to stop rack pulling one time. When I asked why, he said because the weights were slamming. I made him stand there and watch as I did my next set so he could see that I was not dropping weights. I explained to the 150lb fitness expert that 600lbs of steel coming down on steel pins is going to make some noise no matter how gently you lower the weight.

              Same with deads, 700lbs doesn't go down silently.

              I guess it's okay for golds to have a logo of a bar bending deadlift, but you can't actually do it in the gym? That's the first thing I'd point out.

                Not to mention, look at the guy in the logo. He didn't get that way doing Zumba.

                  Interesting, I had the gym manager come over to me at Powerhouse just to bust my cajones as a joke while I was deadlifting. He said can you keep it down? I replied, Can you go away? He laughed and did. I'm glad this place is okay with it. Geez, where are you supposed to work out when you get strong?

                    You're right about that, looks like a crossfitter.

                      Kinda skinny for a cross-fitter, but you're probably right.
