    I am traveling next week to chi town and want to train while there. I am going to be 7 weeks out from contest so i feel it is important, I should be free all evenings from 6pm on, Anyone have any recomendations for a serious gym I could use on a per day or week basis

    Chicago Barbell Compound (pretty far northside)
    Rockwell Barbell (used to be good, heard they moved into a more personal training setup tho)
    Lances Gym (in bridgeport on southside near Sox stadium)

    Oh yeah, if none of those offer a weekly pass, Xsport does. Its not a powerlifting gym per se but you can pretty much do whatever you want in there. I used to go there and it gets pretty damn crowded but you can get a 7 day pass on their website

    So Back from my trip, I went to B&W gym on the north side. It was pretty awesome, old school as it gets, in a basement of a building with both old and new equipment.

    If you eever go there try it it was so worth it

    Excellent choice! I totally forgot about that place. Glad you were able to get a spot.
