Well gym b doesn't even have real barbells(the 20kg ones with rotating ends, in fact they only have three bars, two of them i don't even bother using since they're covered in rubber and are extremely awkward to use) barely any mirrors, its really really small, its hot, it has one bench, the equipment is all rusty AND its twice the price of gym a.

>even asking this question

You'll never make it.

>>35761369
All the other gyms near where i live are more expensive than gym b, so no.
>>
>>35761291
I'd pick gym A personally. Do squats on the smith machine, it's only fucking legs anyway.
>>
>>35761405
I feel your pain, my girlfriend is from Brazil and whenever we are there I can never find a fucking squat rack. I called basically every gym in Macaé and none had one. Luckily my girlfriend's brother who is a boxer told me they had weights at the boxing gym. Plus I boxed most my life so it worked great for me.

Where you at in Brazil?

>>35761541
Salvador.

>>35761563
I actually know a girl from Salvador and she goes to a gym with a squat rack, if she checks her whatsapp anytime soon I'll get you the gym.
>>
>>35761113
This. I was told that squatting naturally was best for you too
>>
>>35761593
Nah don't worry bro. Thanks though.

>>35761080
Bring price of a over and ask if they can match it.

>>35761169
>>35761291
Sorry for your situation.
Fuck the other autists.
Pick A and do cleans and front squats.
I hope it gets better.

Ya theres no way this gym can be nice unless it has a lot of equipment. If you have a lot of equipment, how the fuck do you forget about the squat racks
>>
>>35761879
I know one of the PTs of gym a and he said that its something gyms here have been doing for safety reasons or because people are just afraid to squat or some shit.
>>
>>35761963
Planet fitness isn't a nice gym

GYM C:
Home gym masterrace.

It's not even that expensive and the best long term investment you can make if you have some space for it (this is pretty much how much of it you need)
>>
>>35761080
squat rack and bench are the most important tools in a gym faggot.
Other than that I only use the Roman Chair mostly for leg raises and chin ups (I also do pull-ups and dips once in a while) and that shitty thing for the hyperextensions as I do not deadlift every workout. I also use a chair for skull crusher.
>>
>>35763578
I have those exact stands... great for storing out of the way.

safety catches almost useless (almost)
>>
>>35761169
Gym A is most likely targeted for an older demographic.

Fuck that noise breh

Gym A is the way to go, at least until you find a decent gym with a squat rack.

Really not too big a deal desu unless you're a powerlifter, you can use the smith machine and be fine regardless of fits autistic dogmatic opinion, you don't even have to have huge legs to have a good physique if that's whT you're training for

If you're trying to powerlift though definitely try to find one that's nice AND has a squat rack
>>
Had no choice but to use a gym with a smith machine and no squat rack when I started lifting.

No other gym in the area where I was living at the time, and no room in my apt for a home gym.

Got from squatting just the bar to squatting 250lbs using a smith.

Went to a "real" gym and squatted 250 using a real bar for the first time. Did my normal warm-up sets, and it was exactly the same.

Noticed the need to use more stabiliser muscles, but good form and good training meant I went into "real" squatting with no fucking issues at all.

holy fuck anon my dick pls stop

>>35761080
This is what you're going to do. You're going to pic gym A, and socialize loads from day 1. You're going to get comfy with people just enough to ask them for their bodyweight.

You will make a compilation of bodyweights until you have a maximum difference of 2.5kg (5 burger units) between any two consecutive bodyweights in the list.

By this time you will have developed enough trust with enough of these people so as to use them as your squatting weights. This removes the need for a rack because people, unlike barbells, can recognise when they're falling and adjust accordingly.

Work on your form, it will need some adaptation.
>>
>>35761080
Gym A. Squats are over-rated. You can just grab heavy dumbbells and do lunges, it works just as good.
>>
>>35761080
no squat rack = not a gym
>>
Smartfit né cara? É foda, to na mesma que você, pelo menos a parada tem bastante estrutura. Tenta malhar na sua universidade, aqui na UnB a academia é boa, só que tem umas tretas pra conseguir malhar, mas recomendo você pelo menos tentar.

Stop writing in monkey language

>>35767152

a squat rack would make it an asshole gym
>>
>>35761080
Talk to the owner or post on their Facebook and ask them to consider getting one. Gyms just want their customers to be satisfied.
>>
If it doesn't have a squat rack, then it's not a gym, it's a health spa...
>>
>>35761346
a squat on te smith is basicaly just a leg press. you dont get most of the benefits that come fromm squatting
>>
>>35761963
ymca in my town did this so i switched to a steroid gym

>>35761168
that is actually extremely common
i used to do my squats in an inclined bench press setup

>>
>>35761362
>>35770565
