Another great series of ol time photos! Thanks, Funk.

Time for a TEST .... WIthout naming them, how many people can you ID in this photo (just give a number).

And have any of you GetBiggers met any of them personally?

where do u get these pix?  U have one hell of an impressive collection. And u must have them categorized pretty well to retrieve them so quick.

Is that bill pearls gym in the pic?  That's awesome. I saw brignole in the post later. That kind of looks like his old gym from what I remember of it.

Jeezus!  Literally.  Pat Roberstson such a fucking idiot.  I just found this.  Dave looks great.  Very healthy and very well spoken.

I genuinely expected a pic of a young woman with taut skin, the underlying corn-yellow adipose tissue distributed just so -- not a virtually naked blonde dude in a thong, covered in oil and posing for other men. I guess this place hasn't turned me gay -- yet.
yeah. gotta admit.  I feel kinda gay posting a bb vid even on a bb site.  the absurdity of it all but its the life we've chosen

The old saying goes, Condensers don`t die, you have to murder them.

Whats amusing is that nobody really needs to replace their air conditioners at all most of the time.  The models that are labeled "energy efficient" really aren`t any more efficient than those of 20-40 years ago. Also, the really old ones are built like tanks and never go bad.
the guy claims the person who did my duct work when i intially built the building fucked eveything up n the air flow is restricted.  he said that will do it. We're going to just cut open up the duct work in the exposed ceiling of the gym to let it breathe.  Not sure if his theory is correct tho.  I have the same ac unit at the house n its 17 years old n kicking ass still.

here's an old or shouid i say young manion's gym bb.  watch at the two n three minute mark.  He had some incredible lgs and abs back then.  the knock against him was his arms.  Saw him a year or two ago n he still looks great.

those drill bits are easily accesable by anyone now unfortunatly but still good idea because the theives arent that smart, i just hate the day when they are gonna have battery powerd grinders on hand
ive often thought of that. With the lith ion portable tools u can pretty much steal anything w a grinder n a cut off wheel.

The security screws I've seen are only sold at specialty fastener shops.  You probably wouldn't see them at Lowes, or at least not the more exotic ones, and there are tons of different styles.  I think a thief would just move along to another house before running around trying to find the right driver unless he really takes his chosen field seriously.

Hope you have some good security measures at the gym.  I often wonder how many new businesses, who have competition in town, end up suffering 'random vandalism.'
haha!  Gdammit. Ironically my eight year old AC unit outside that supplies the gym just broke!  My AC guy who is very good to me, n who I trust says the compressors shot. 1,500 bux at least. U may b right!

Old school Cybex... love that stuff! With a small foot print, heavy stack because of ratio/placement of pulleys...great equipment.  I have the Cybex Eagle tricep ext machine, bicep preacher machine cable x-over and their plate loaded leg press (same one Dorian has in his Temple gym in England)...in my home-basement gym.

Wishing you the best with your gym, was just up in Morgantown today, Shady Maple.  I am guessing you are up a ways from there> ? !
i have a ton of stuff at my house n in the barn to. That old cybex stuff is under rated man. Had a guy say its only got a 150 lb stack. I smiled n put the pin in 150 n he couldn't lift it. It's geared, I say geared but I know it not right, heavy.  I have the eagle seated row selectorxed at home from back in the late 80s. That thing kicks ass! Also have two seated military cybex. I still to this day have not found a better military press.
I'm about 1 1/2 from Morgantown but I drive fast so two hours normal driving.  Love their plate loaded leg press but I don't have it. Hoping of expansion n bringing all that n more down. Thanks for your encouragement.

Also if u look close u can see the steel peg I welded otop in case anyone wats to add plates

Oh yeah. One more thing. The way that thing is geared heavy, and the angle of the shoulder rests always put a tremendous amnt of pressure on the shoulder jts. Look in to thinsulite high density foam if u ever have to recover any padding. It's amazing. Thinsulite 1 1/2 inch foam the more pressure u put in it the more it seems to push back. U can get rolls on line pretty cheap. It made the machine so much better too.

they took half the screws out so what i did is i took my grider and flattend the screws enough so that they can get in a screw driver the fucking jackasses, theres no white people around here either so dont go there

Thatís because for many marginalized Blacks, a nice white person is an anomaly, just like a nice slave master. Thatís why peer whites who they really like, will get the highest hood badge of honor of being called ďMy n=gga!Ē Donít get me started
how will u get the screws out? Or r u thinking yu will never have to?  I guess u could grind the bolt head all the way off if its nit recessed
470  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: some jackass afro head tried to steal my hvac unit on: June 29, 2013, 03:15:59 AM
Haha, neither can you!

They make these things now.  They're called security screws.  Come with their own special driver and everything.


those make it harder but ez to get the screw drivers if they really want it. Unless they r just that unmotivated correct?
471  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Expanding to more of the general population on: June 28, 2013, 08:32:50 PM
Just out of curiosity what is your guarantee?
472  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: My New Gym - Brickyard Gym on: June 28, 2013, 05:33:10 PM
do you have day rates for travelling getbiggers, who might find themselves in that neck of the pa woods?
I know u r in to history n u r about 4 hours away.  Wait till I get Big Z up.  He's a worth the trip. One of the coolest things I ever saw.

One thing I will say bro, is that don't limit yourself to a 'comfortable slice of the local gym market'. Why can't your gym be the best 'hardcore' gym ever, why can't slik's gym be remembered alongside the greats in years to come. Sky's the limit bro.
Already in the back of my mind but I don't want to get cocky.  Thanks.  Memberships are selling well and like I said just big word of mouth.  No real ads or events yet but that's to come. 
475  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: My New Gym - Brickyard Gym on: June 28, 2013, 04:58:38 AM
Really is looking great Slik, you've done a great job in the locker room also (considering this is not your trade I presume)!!! I', bummed (no homo) that I'm across the pond as I'd definitely come and train there buddy
thanks. Yeah not my trade but my dad escaped comm china n came w twenty dollars in his pocket. He taught us everything. He had to learn everything to survive here. No g4pay tho.  Carpentry, building shit etc so it comes in real handy. We're off to a great start. Already vision the expansion. Anyway. I don't want to be an attention whore. Ill wait now for anything real cool to update pix or info.
