Going old school.

Whenever you see videos of bodybuilders talking about their favorite gyms – a lot of times you’ll hear them mention that they enjoy a facility that uses and upkeeps old school equipment. The kind of machines that are hard to come by today as they went the way of the dinosaur. But is there really a benefit to the old school machines versus the supposedly improved science of new equipment?

Gold’s Gym bodybuilding legend and oral historian Ric Drasin sits down with TK Kinney, a man involved with building gym equipment, to go in detail about REAL old school equipment and why many athletes still want to find them and use them. Is this just further nastolgia or do these past relics actually hold a unique use that modern equipment just doesn’t have. Find out for yourself in the video above!
