How about people that don't touch their chest when they bench or people who don't go all the way to 90 when squatting. That really pisses me off because then they come up to me and proceed to tell me that they hit that set of squats 6 times with 375lbs when they barley bent their knees. And you didn't hit that set on bench if the bar doesn't touch your chest so don't tell me that you got 315 for 4 when you barely bend your elbows. Not one rep was done that day.

Ill defend the benching.

I just came off a rotator cuff injury and did chest today. I could barely go past 90 without my shoulder giving me pain. I agree that there are some people that just half *** everything, but there are some people that are either injured or coming of an injury.

Speaking of which, I watched a guy doing bench, got down to his chest, said **** it and let the weight rest on his chest while still somewhat holding it.

A few minutes pass by and he lifts it like it's nothing, racks it, and then sits there with the famous gym stare for 5 minutes. I started laughing, he looked like he didn't get much sleep the night before or something... that or long day at work.

haha, I love those ones. These are the same types of people that take their shoes off and go barefoot so they can "get a better push through their heels." Don't get me wrong, I go with a minimalist shoe too, but I break parallel or don't do it.

I squat barefoot and a** to grass. I'm tall and skinny so it helps me keep my hips back and stay on my heals while not leaning forward. Fact is, most people don't know how to squat, with or without shoes is a whole different debate.

I dead lift barefoot. It's easier when you're not digging your heels into a soft, squishy surface.

I would recommend not doing bench until you can do it right and with no pain. Not trying to be a dick, just don't want you hurting your shoulder anymore then you already have. Sorry to hear about your injury, that really sucks.

I think he was referring to the guys that think they're better/ cooler because they squat and dead lift barefoot without knowing the benefit of what it does. There's a reason squat shoes are so stiff.

Also a reason those shoes are designed like you're not wearing a shoe as far as foot alignment

There is this scrawny guy at my gym. He's new to the gym but I don't know if he's new to working out. I'd venture to say he is.

He's the loud kid who's yelling to his friends and trying to figure out different, and ineffective ways work muscle groups. He kept putting a chain belt on the dip deal and walking away. I'd move it so my girlfriend and I could use it and he comes back when were done with our set and puts it back. Then asked if he's using it when we go to do our next set, he claims he forgot about it and quickly moves it. Always doing stupid **** like that. Spends 5 minutes trying to figure out how to do dumbbell curls on an incline free bench by laying on it. Does dips between two benches and drops the weight he has on his lap, because it's too much for him but he doesn't care. Stupid.

There was a guy this morning that was pure inconsiderate. I get using something for a good amount of time but when you're there for an hour, literally an entire hour using the same bar, you're a dick.

He was doing front and back squats, over head squats and calves by standing on 10lb weights. Okay, over head squats and military/push press. Sure. But I was ****ing livid when he went to do calves. There is a machine in the gym specifically for that. Go bugger off and use that.

He'd take weight off and put weight on after every set. Just going back and forth from 45's to 45's and 10's.

All I wanted to do was a few super sets of hang clean to front squat to push press(by the time he was done I was already tired and was only able to do 2x5, bastard).

I wanted to throw him into the wall.

There was this kid yesterday who was doing shrugs and then watched me do some pull ups an lateral raises and then he started doing them too. Not annoying or anything. I just thought it was funny.

I saw a kid yesterday who took out three separate pairs of dumbbells. Didn't see what he did with them but I'm sure it didn't require them all to be out.

He was also wearing a weight belt you would see someone in a store wearing with the shoulder straps. Ha

Speaking of weight belts, there's a guy up here that wears one doing EVERYTHING. It's pathetic. He's got a huge upper section, but small legs. Also sad.

He has to have a really weak core...

We ask those guys how their ostrich is doing. They've got a huge upper body and chicken legs. Makes them look like they are ridding around on an ostrich.
