To save money i lift at the rec center at my college as it is free to me with a student id and it gets me by. But i cant help but notice they keep buying these worthless machines. So tonight when the professor that is the head of the hhp department and incharge of the gym was in there i respectfully asked him why they keep buying these machines instead of a real squat rack, deadlift station, decline bench, or even just heavier dumbells. His response was that this is a "wellness center" not an athletic gym and that stuff would just cause injuries. and im not going to stand there and argue with someone who is over 6 foot and 120 pounds soaking wet and looks like a holocaust victim about training. so it looks like i will have to continue to wait for all the douchebags to get done doing their endless sets of barbell shrugs in the smithmachine just so i can do squats. sorry just wanted to rant a little.
