Leg Day @ MetroFlex

You can see that I’m squatting on the same stands and platform as [arguably] the greatest bodybuilder ever, Ronnie Coleman when he hit 800 lbs. This place is full of nostalgia and the vibe is like nothing I’ve experienced before. I would venture to say the gym has never been cleaned once in its 30 years of existence. There are spider webs on some of the machines they haven’t been moved or cleaned in so long. Never before have I lifted in a gym where the collective feng shui overcomes you upon entering. I mean, I met Branch Warren in the fuckin parking lot as I was walking in like it was no big deal. I chatted with the owner Brian Dobson for a few minutes and he let me lift for free after finding out I was in the Army. Walking thru the front door is the equivalent of 4 scoops of pre-workout alone. Once I got a pump, I felt grateful for the opportunity to lift in what I consider the Mecca of Bodybuilding. I got to train on the same machines as my heroes & I didn’t wanna let them down. It made me feel invincible; like I could train until a keeled the fuck over. Check out the video!
