    Ryanand - I used to love compound setting EZ curls with EZ slide curls. God that hurts.




    It is sad but must be said, as time goes on, the number of annoying people at the gym will mutiply because gyms are changing the demographic that they cater to. At least the thoughtful gyms will place all the freeweights in a distant part of the gym so the two species of gym user won't be forced to mingle.





    Today I saw Mr. Jealous Boyfriend type. This annoying gym persona is usually a guy that thinks he is in much better shape then he is (probably because he played football in high school blah blah blah) and brings his girlfriend to help him workout. He tries to act cool because he thinks he looks good and since he thinks his girl is hot, but then gets jealous if he even thinks you are looking at her. He also tends to shoot looks over when someone is lifting something heavier than he is.

    No jackoff, I'm not checking out your girl. Instead I am wondering why you have to strain so much with shitty form to lift such light weight.

    The wrist strap guy, closely related to the belt dude.

    Somewhy believes wrist straps are the way to go when doing any exercise involving a bar to be gripped. Finds new, creative ways of using his contraptions every session. Subsequently gets 0 grip strength and tries to correct this flaw by doing wonky isolated forearm exercises such as wrist curls.

    Bad form assholes:

    Guys who do bicep curls while standing and swinging the dumbells, arching their back, and bending their knees to lower their upper body so that they can get the weights all the way to the top. I really want to punch these annoying fools.

    To add to this (esp the "asshole" part),

    They usually are around other Bad Form Assholes who think they're the **** when it comes to lifting weights.


    Personal experience: Athletic Conditioning time during wrestling off-season was spent with other off-season sports. Including soccer. Now what the soccer kids were doing in the weight lifting room I'll never know. What they were doing with bicep curls I don't think I'll ever know either. But they were lifting more weight than some of us wrestlers, but of course it's because of the bad form. Bending at the knees and swinging the bar up to their shoulders, rather than using the biceps.


    Sure enough they thought they were stronger than the wrestlers.


    ....ugh....

    No that's not a bicep curl, it's the highly skilled excercise known as a"chiropractors friend".
