Morons at the gym (the official thread)...


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Morons at the gym (the official thread)... within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: All the time I read about your encounters with jackasses at the gym that do rediculous workouts, make resiculous claims simply do lifts improperly with very limited range of motion. I personally like reading about them as them are always good for a chuckle. Post your stories here for us all to enjoy. Here are 2 stories from my workout yesterday. Yesterday I was doing squats which are pretty sad at this point in time, legs are by far my weakest bodypart. The weight doesn't feel heavy on

    There is a few younger teens around 20 years old that go to my gym they are always there but everyday they do upper body workouts mostly consisting of rows, tricep push downs, curls, curls, and squat curls lol I have seen them train "legs" one time they incorporated a set or two of squats consisting of just the bar going no where near Parallel.. Here is the biggest kicker they are your typically 20 year olds who think they know everything but they try and talk to everyone and basically brag about what they do, so a newer member showed up not sure if they knew him or not but they went up to the new guy and gave him pointers. Witch were don't do legs they are a waste I only train back and biceps with a lil triceps and chest press occasionally but mainly back...... And that is how he they got there nicknames, back and bis kids lol

    Powerlifters. Those who ask me for a spot. Seriously, why don't powerlifters understand that I don't want to spot what they seem to think are squats? As soon as they realize they can't "squat" the weight on the bar, they start begging the spotters like little bitches to grab the weight. Seriously, grow some balls, and get under that bar by yourself, and stop bothering half the gym to assist you. It pisses me off, especially when I am preparing for competition, and no one thinks that maybe I need to concentrate on my training, which doesn't have huge rest periods. Just because your powerlifting buddies take 15 minute rests in between sets and have the time to spot you, doesn't mean I do. Especially when there are other people there they can ask for a spot.

    And I need to figure out a way to politely explain to the people asking me for a spot to f*** off and ask someone else. Without being rude of course. Though I don't foresee that going well lol.

    the spotting thing is used way too much. if you can't do the weight with proper form then you shouldn't attemp to. you should be aware of how much you can do ahead of time

    worst case if you get into a bind just yell for help. i get guys always asking me if i need a spot when i go heavy and i tell them no i'm fine and they look at me in shock. next time i am just gonna tell them 'look bro i am aware of what i can do, i don't need a spotter.. if something goes wrong i will just yell'

    ^^this

    The ONLY time I ask for a spot is when I'm moving up on weight and I'm not sure how I'll respond. I can't stand to watch guys throw 315 on the bar only to have someone else doing upright rows to get them through their set.

    Was even told by a big guy a few months ago that if I'm not using a spotter, I'm not lighting enough. Bullshit.
