    It must have been bad if you were getting pissed off. You showed more self-restraint than I would have.

    We have a true weekend-warrior at my gym... he'll come in both Saturday and Sunday & stay for at LEAST two hours... Do 1 WAY-Too-Heavy REP on everything with the poorest form youve ever seen, while wearing a weight belt... and then go outside and chain smoke in his car until his next set. He's obvious pretty serious about lifting... or, at least he grunts like he is.

    There was a trainer in the squat rack next to the one I was using for my deadlifts yesterday that had a client doing deads as well. She had no weight added to the bar and she was in good shape. She kept watching me add weight to the bar and asked her trainer why he wasn't adding any weight to hers. What did he say back to her you ask?? " She is building muscle obviously that is why she has such heavy weight, I am having you lift just the bar so you TONE your muscles." :ruloco:

    Tone is a 4 letter word...:nonono:

    I should have stayed near her longer to video. I am getting better at taking sly videos of idiots at my gym. :funny:

    I think I am going to change the title of this thread to " what did you see in your gym today on the smith machine"

    Today on the smith machine a guy was doing SLDLs with very little weight and a weight belt on. ummmmm :wtf:

    I bet we could have a thread just for the smith machine and we would have tons of posts. :sad:

    A trainer having his client stand on a exercise ball?!? What's the point? That's an unnecessary accident waiting to happen.

    A man in jeans and a tucked in long sleeve button up shirt walking backward on the treadmill.. Yep... And Sunday two teenage boys taking turns lifting each others weight on the BB bench press for every rep.. Point please???? And the spotting was even done badly. I wanted so bad to go show them how and unload their plates for them.. It hurt to watch..
