Anyway, we're not sure if The Training Station Inc. website we found when searching the chasms of the nets for that long-lost Buns of Steel video we used to have on VHS is actually from (at least) a decade ago or not, but it looks like it. Created by Doug Walker, personal trainer and self-proclaimed "Webmaster", The Training Station Inc. lets a user learn barbell and free weight exercises simply by running his or her cursor over the almost-stick figure workout images. It is then that the animated GIFs come alive -- so be prepared to be surprised and amazed.
After further digging, it seems that The Training Station isn't just an awesome website for what were once known as body-builders; it is an actual gym in Indianapolis -- and we want to go there, so bad. Why? Because as personal trainer and webmaster Walker explains, "The Training Station has an 80's back-to-basics atmosphere, which you will see reflected in my workouts. I feel this was a time when bodybuilding & fitness weren't all about money or the "in thing", people trained hard for them selves and the love of the sport, and bodybuilders were like a family" [so much sic].
