    Aint this a BIG BI***!!!!!!






    In my gym. If your under 18, your not allowed to use Free weights. Its just f**ked. I got dumbells home but its boring home. I cant just use machines cause theyre not as beneficial as free weights. M training programme is whack just cause of that rule. anyone have the same problem?

    Wow, no. That is a load of horseshit.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...

    If they won't allow you a freeweight burn, light the place up and watch it burn. Tell them they smell like dead whales and threaten to urinate on their dogs' graves. Then proceed to poo in their whey. Don't forget to laugh manically while doing it all.

    My gym has weird hours for people under 18 - they are allowed there from 9-11 in the morning (when they should be in school) and then 3:30-5:30 but have to leave by 6. And unlimited weekends.

    But that's garbage - they probably don't want to deal with the liability.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Surely thats an ass backward regulation? Isnt it EASIER to get injured using machines than freeweights?

    Thats what ive always understood. And its a big reason why im a freeweights nut.

    I run a gym and am thinking of implementing that rule.JOKING.I don't know why that would be necessary unless they have a very strict insurrance company that sees teens as higher risk.I lifted when I was younger and would fight that tooth and nail.Perhaps regulations just aren't as strict for health clubs in the US.

    I started training when I was about 15 1/2 years old. They did that same crap at the YMCA I went to. When you turned 16 you could go in with a parent...

    if they are afraid of law suits, a simple release form signed by the minors parents should be enough, no?

    like when i joined the wrestling team for a bit in high school, they made my mother sign a release form and she almost didn't cause they were saying shit like "death or paralysis etc." lol

    Yeah, when I did sales at Gold's we allowed people in as young as 16 if their parents signed the agreement with them.
