I concur wholeheartedly! My home gym...nothin but iron,(mostly old ''Billard'' plates, among others) the best way to go-no fancy, shiny machines. Also I love the pics and recollections of the old Zuver's gym-talk about ''Hardcore'', thanks for sharing, in this and other threads.
check out the billard thread on here. you might recognize some plates.

Thanks!! I have some of those ''dimple'' plates appr. 100 pounds in 2 1/2 lbs. 3 lbs., 5 and 10 lbs ,  and about 300+ lbs. of flat ''pancake'' plates in 2 1/2 lbs., 5 lbs. 10 lbs., and 25 lbs.-all standard however. Purchased them in the 80s. Also some ''Keys'' barbell 50 pounders.. All total approximately 800 pounds of standard plates alone in my gym/collection. Will try to post some pics.   Cool

Quad's Gym Chicago.
Zuverman stopped by Quad's Gym this morning. He wanted to pump a little iron with Champion Powerlifter
Ed Coan.
Wouldn't you just know it Ed isn't due till tomorrow.
So Big Z pumped some iron and signed some autographs for the regulars.
Great old school gym with some new school.

It's the first charity event Zuver's Gym put on for the public back in 1964. Me little brother Rick The Rhino Was 8years old and I was 12. It was titled,
Zuver's Gym
Mr Hall of Fame
        And
Miss Physical Fitness
Dec. 9th 1964
Enjoy the pics.
