My girlfriend and I started a week trial at Golds in town. I wasn't in the squat rack but 2 minutes and a guy comes in and hops in the one next to me. No big deal. 1 plate, almost decent squat. 2 plates, eh it could be worse. Surely he's going to stop there and work on form. Nope. The third goes on and he adds another 6 half squat reps to his day. Shortly thereafter he adds a fourth plate and adds another 6 quarter reps to his day. I was thinking that must be it for the ice cream cone shaped man who had a high affinity for his calves. I was wrong. He throws on 25s and proceeds to lower the weight 2-4 inches for 6 reps. All the whole counting his reps out loud while getting pumped as each "rep" is completed.

Then he goes and does the same thing on leg press.



There is also this 50 year old dude with a ton of body hair who wears a muscle shirt. One of those tiny ones. That's a strange sight.

I get tickled when they hop on a cross trainer next to my girlfriend, who is 61 years old, with the body of a 25 yr old....seriously. She's hauling azz on the cross trainer ( eliptical) and she'll do it, non-stop for 40 mins easily. These young guys hop on one next to her and they last 10-15 min at most and they are on level one or two, when she's on level 19. No one in the gym can keep up with her.( she's been doing it for 14 years now) It's hilarious to watch. I'm usually nearby and she winks at me, knowing what I'm thinking. BTW, she's 5-2, 115 lbs.

We are all about reps, not weight. Bulking up isnt our thing. Did that years ago. Staying strong and healthy is. If you dont do your cardio, you are pizzing in the wind. Want to see how weak you are really are? Get on that eliptical at level 19 for 40 min., then hop on the treadmill at a 7% incline at 6 MPH for another 30. Then go lift. If we old farts can do it, so can you, eventually.

Well, since this thread has been bumped...


Why do people use the assisted pull up machines as a leg exercise? I've only ever seen women do it for whatever reason, but it doesn't seem that beneficial or a good use of the machine. They will put one foot on the part where you usually put two or kneel on depending on the machine, and just step down on it with that one left. Up, down, up, down. It just looked odd to me, but maybe it's more common than I think?

I've seen a lot of girls do that here at the school. Supposedly it's good for the glutes and hams. Kinda like a 1 legged squat if you think about it.

Even planet fitness has a machine specifically for that.

But why not just do squats? Or the squat press? Or an actual one leg squat? I don't know, I guess I never thought of it and can't say I will ever do it.

The machine is also not intended for that. Which, I guess doesn't hugely matter, but still.

The machines intended for it increase the range of motion beyond a normal squat. You'd press behind you. One legged squats can be hard as well. Those women using the assisted machines are just silly.

Like the women who lays on her back and puts her feet on the smith machine bar and raises an lowers it that way. Still can't figure out the point of that one.
