All the talk has been going on for too long without any action. Here's is a thread for the LI animals. So far, we were thinking about setting something up at the Powerhouse Gym in Syosset. It seems to be a good place for everyone and a solid gym, but other suggestions are welcome.

For me personally, I am most likely not going to be able to attend anything until after May 16th. But I'll be ready after then, without a doubt.

So here is the thread, let the posting begin!!

If we do it at Bev's Powerhouse this could be a huge event. I've had that gym on my radar for a while. We need to plan it right and pick a good date possibly July.

Any time sounds good. Could we get maybe a smaller event before that to loosen things up if people are available?

Your free to set something up if you like but I say we do it up right and plan it out. We have a NY event in May, also a Philly event at the end of May and a NJ event planned for June.

word up, I live on LI and I've been dying to make it to an ABC for a long time. Any chance you'll schedule one for a sunday so my work doesn't get in the way?? It seems every ABC falls on saturday, and I have some event at my dojo that keeps me from attending.

For what it's worth, LI is big. If it's close to NYC, then we can roll in events together. On the other hand, if ti's more than an hour or so away, can be a distinct LI ABC event... What does everyone think?

so basically, if we set one up in western nassau, we could get NYC and LI people out. But if we also want, we can have exclusive LI events further out east?

I just want to make sure I understood that.

What we need to do is pick a date in July or August preferably as we have several other local ABC's in May/June. Once we decide on a date we need to get in contact with Bev Francis's Powerhouse gym and confirm that it's ok to do it on that date, then we roll from there.

I agree. We don't want to interfere with any other events happening. I figured tomorrow we can talk about some things. I'll be on vacation next week, and I just came off of finals, so I haven't established any contact with Powerhouse yet, but it will get done, rest assured.

Awesome to hear dude. There is no age restriction. If you want to join us, you are more than welcome. It's good to lift with these guys and get motivated with them. At the NYC event today, me, BIG in NYC and zanderfeever all set dead PR's just from pushin each other, it was great. We'll have updates on the dates and what not very soon.

July 5th - Probably not a good date being that it's the day after the 4th of July.

July 12th

July 19th

July 26th

If July didn't workout, then first Saturday in August is the 2nd.

This is just a little FYI to keep everybody updated so we don't lose track of what we wanted to do.

You know I would be there! If I may make a suggestion..if we still want to consider a Long Island atmosphere/gym..there is one that is local to me and on this article:
"Top 10 Hardcore Gyms In The Country..."
Here's our top ten list of hardcore gyms that we've ever trained at. You got one you think belongs on this list? Email us at info@animalpak.com. Better yet, send us a pic and maybe we'll pay your gym a visit.

10. Southside Gym (Stratford, CT)
9. Iron Island (Oceanside, NY)
8. 5th Avenue Bodybuilding (Brooklyn, NY)
7. B&W Gym (Chicago, IL)
6. Body Builders, Inc. (Akron, OH)
5. Bev Francis' Gold's Gym (Syosset, NY)
4. Metroflex Gym (Arlington, TX)
3. West Side Barbell Club (Columbus, OH)
2. Gladiators Gym (New York, NY)
1. Diamond Gym (Maplewood, NJ)

Iron Island..I have passed by there and from the looks outside, it DEF seems hardcore, as the gym is in 2 factory garages....

If you fellas want, I can stop by there this week and speak with the owner and set up something for those local to Long Island...How bout it NG??

Hot off the press, I just got word that Powerhouse is not an option so we need a plan B.

Do you want a closed doors event?

I'm assuming we would want free day passes? (They have 3 day trials for free online if worst came to worst we can all print one)

Roughly how many people (including the big names!)?

We don't need a closed door event, we don't want to disrupt any gyms regular members. If they would give us free passes in exchange for publicity and some free supplements that would be great but some gyms do insist on a daily fee.

It's hard to say how many people at this point.

Also keep in mind that there is going to be another NJ event on July 26th at Skiba's gym so if we decide to do it that day there won't be as many people in attendance. We may want to shoot for another date.

But the doctor and PT both said I could work on my upper body, but to just be really careful not to fcuk up my hammy any more. So that is exactly what I did yesterday.

I will continue to go to the gym 2-3x a week and work on my upper body, splitting my days of Back + Biceps + Forearms ; Chest + Triceps + abs ; Shoulders + arms (to hit them again, since my intensity/weight will be down)+ abs

but I'll DEF be down for Aug. 16

Heal up BiG, how did that happen?

I play (or was playing) summer baseball and I hit the ball down the line and (as the usual goes) I wanted to stretch a single into a double and 1/2 down to second, I heard a "pop" in my left hamstring.

Positive is that I was safe and the pinch runner came into score! Negative is that I endured the injury and that I can't workout legs or truly hardcore, like I would like.

The Doc and the PT said I could work on my upper body, but just to be careful not to "twinge" or worsen my hamstring.

I went yesterday, b/c i was going insane with boredom and madness! and I did HS machines and felt pretty good.
I think I will continue this 2-3x a week and probably stick to HS machines as BB and DB will require a lot of picking up and I don't want to fcuk up my hamstring anymore than what it is. HS are easy, accesible and easier to work and don't really effect my hamstring.

Thats a 50 min to 1 hour drive for me. If it's the 3rd week of August, i may just make that trip, especially if its a chest/biceps routine. haha. My workout buddy is going to cali that week for training, so i won't have anybody to help me push thru heavier sets.

The biggest concern they had was this event coming off as a bunch of meat-heads lifting. I told them we are accepting to everyone who wants to join, even if people want to just show up and lift. I also said most of the guys aren't huge anyway. They look just like anyone else in the gym.

My friend just hit me up about the gym he goes to. He says "I belong to South Shore Fitness, it is hardcore! Power lifting but the Cardio equipment is brand new. 50 pieces 90 % with TV's on them."
^that was a text message.

He said its new ownership there and he knows the owner and could talk to him today. Its off Loften Ave? Oceanside, so its Nassau County.

They don't have a website yet, but if you want my friend's contact info so you can get in touch with the owner too maybe? let me know.

Apparently my boy, who used to be my boss, isn't very reliable for talking to the gym. But if someone can contact the owner, he can put in word about it too. It was just bad timing because my boy just got married and currently moving into his condo at Ocean Beach, where he's coming from Patchogue and wife is from Manhattan. Can the coordinator maybe contact they gym? I tried getting him to ask yesterday but he was swamped with stuff to do.

Listen guys, I've been thinking, but I want to make sure everyone is on the same page. I want the first Long Island even to be INCREDIBLE....bc Long Island is the shit. Seriously tho, I want to have an event where we can get as many people and as many reps as possible out, with a good amount of notice. This would be not only good for us on the forvm, but Universal Supplements in general. I think that we should postpone the event for a few months, and have the best ABC event anyone has ever seen. (I say a few months bc I will be up at school for some time.) From the gym, to the number of people, to the reps, to the pro animals. If we can do this right, it'd be a lot better than rushing it. I'd like to get all of your opinions on this, including the Universal Reps.
