    Nope. I really don't care about anyone else at the gym. Maybe an eye candy will catch my attention or some swole guy that I wish I had some muscle group like.

    only exercises i need help with are lat pulls, deads, shrugs, and yates rows. most of my exercises are done from a seated position. some pulling movements i've had to modify due to a weak lower back. i use some chains with s-hook attachments, my power hooks from hypertrophyllc.com, and some grizzly ankle cuffs. with these i can do any pulley/dumb bell exercise. for my pressing exercises i use a machine called an uppertone. it's working for the moment but it's definitely not the same as free weights.
