    There was a dude following me around my gym yesterday giving me a bunch of random lifting advice, non-stop, and it's not like I was really even acknowledging him...:hsugh:

    Were you doing everything wrong? I've never given anybody advice, but if I saw someone bordering injury I would probably say something.

    I wasn't ignoring him, just said like stuff like "Oh, good know" and "Cool, thanks for the info", but I wasn't perpetuating any conversation and he kept giving me advice anyway.

    I didn't want to be a complete dick, he was being nice to me. Offered me a bunch of advice, not ridiculous stuff either, random shit you would probably pick up around here.

    on a completely different note cuz chizzle's a lil bitch:

    Anyone ever come up to a squat rack where dude's were about to curl and ask them "What are you guys doing?" "We're curling." "No, I don't think so. Go curl elsewhere."

    No, but I saw a guy take up the 1 rack at my old gym to curl with two 10's on each side. When he got done he put the bar vertical to get the weights off the one end and then proceeded to what looked like hug/kiss the weights for about 3 minutes, just standing there, not moving. Turns out he had gotten his finger trapped between two 10's and couldn't get it out until someone helped him.

    I would have helped him if I had known what was going on, but wtf, why not just lay the bar down?

    After the guy helped him take the weights off and set the bar down the kid just left. Didn't even rack his weights or take care of the bar.

    I thought about walking up and saying something to the effect of "You know, it's really amazing they wasted all this steel to make this giant contraption just to do curls in... I can't imagine what they were thinking!"

    But I didn't because there is always a rack free so they can do whatever they want I guess. Usually curls and shrugs, I rarely see anybody squat and even more rarely see someone do something besides 1/4 squat.

    I just say "there is an entire rack of pre-weighted barbells over there for you to do curls with, can you use those so I can use this to squat?"

    Never had a problem - people just need to ask and it'll work.
