    Does anyone else have this guy in their gym- likes to do powerlifting stuff. Spends 10 mins putting on knee wraps, elbow supports, wrist straps, gloves-and needs 2 people to help them get belt tight enough. Will stack an immense amount of weight on a bar, then walk round the gym psyching themselves up, possibly slapping themselves/ headbutting walls, screaming and swearing at themselves (this can go on for some time)

    Normally has at least 3 spotters. Grabs hold of bar, spends 5 mins getting perfect position/ centreing on bar. Lifts once, screaming like they are trying to pass a cannonball. Drops the weight then sits down for 20 mins before hitting the shower?

    I have trained in a proper powerlifting gym and never saw this kind of behaviour. Plain weird.

    The gym I used to go to a couple of years ago had one strange dude. Came in, went straight to working biceps, spent around a hour doing them and went away. I saw him very frequently throughout the year.

    Needless to say he had no muscle at all anywhere but his biceps. Skinny forearms, legs and your general slowly building beer keg for a stomach. Huge biceps, though.

    Only if you are strapped up til you look like something out of 'The Mummy", scream, and your rep range is about 3" while you hold your knees.

    That is not a strange dude. This kind of person is extremely common in all gyms i'm afraid.

    Just because this kind of person is common, doesn't mean to say they are not strange

    Agreed. I don't get what the point really is. You don't do **** with big biceps. You're still weak otherwise and well toned muscles look helluva lot better than huge biceps. Maybe it's some desperate masculinity / penis compensation for the lazy?

    Could be a subconcious thing. You ask any kid to show you their muscles(not in a creepy child molesting way before anyone starts) and they will probably show you their biceps, in the same way old people wil tell their grandkids how strong they are getting while putting their hand round their upper arm.

    In conclusion, go and shoot all these old people, and there will be fewer fucktards in our gyms!!!

    Very good point, I stand corrected

    I go to a gym in the city of London. Everyone there is in banking/accountancy/law or works back office in those kind of businesses. These kind of gyms are way more annoying than college gyms.

    Men who do assisted pull-ups.
    People who do assisted dips.
    People who do pull-ups while flailing their legs wildly for momentum
    Fat people doing anything other than cardio
    People using those assisted sit up cradle things
    Well educated, well spoken, portly accountants who lapse into US Ghetto speak while 'spotting' for one another. Bro'.

    Maybe slightly off topic but our gym also has a massive Hapkido class every single day. They all arrive ridiculously early and sit around waiting for their class to start and talk earnestly about their deadly skills and the responsibility that comes with their terrible knowledge. I am really not koking. They do this every day in hushed, awed tones. Then people training in the proper gym can enjoy watching what is basically a dance class. They have about 40 students paying 80 a month for this sh*t (its a gym right in the city of London). Sorry. I just had to tell someone.
