Drama, Drama, Drama

I find it funny that chicks get such a bad rap for seeking attention in the gym. True, there are some gyms where this is encouraged and happens. However; in my experience; it’s the men who are FAR more willing to do what it takes to get people to look their way. Drama. Blech.

We have more than a few of those at the gym I’m currently training at. The groaning and screaming is off the charts. I literally walked over to ‘Mr. Dude leg pressing 2 1/2 plates yelling his head off ‘ and asked if he were ok. I startled him. He said, “Ya, I’m in the zone.” I said, “Ya, you’re screaming as if you’re dying..” He laughed…but quieted down…a bit.

I know, it’s confrontational. But the drama is rude, unnecessary, and obnoxious. It’s a ploy that a simple shirt saying ” LOOK AT ME!” would take care of and not bother those of us who are actually trying to train.

Here at Globo Gym we’re better than you, and we know it.

About tosabarbell

For training opportunities at tosabarbell, call or text Juli at 320-296-9313. e-mail to jep6095@gmail.com At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be. tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned. I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better. Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East. This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
