    around 10 months ago i used to go to this local family owned gym which had a lot of cool people aside this one weird fellow. whenever he saw me lifting, he would always try to compete against me and keep asking me my max and whatnot. he talks to his hand, i guess to motivate himself? and would sometimes interupt me inbetween sets. so i see this guy at my local grocery store last night...

    me: hey xxxxx, how you been?
    weirdo: im good, you still hitting the gym?
    me: yeah, but i lift at 24hr now
    weirdo: yesterday i benched 235lb for 10 reps, can you do that?
    me: thats good but i havent maxed on bench for about a month. i been concentrating more on squating/deadlifting





    have any of you guys encounter people like this before?

    I can't say that has ever happened to me. The latest gym I lift at now is full of people age 50+ so I'm sure we'd have nothing in common.

    Im usually really quiet in the gym. But sometimes I notice people "observing" me for extremely long periods of time.

    I have had some guy come up to me and ask how I was able to do flys with such "an enormous ammount of weight" :rofl:

    I talk to people at the gym when I ask them if they can do barbell curls outside of the squat rack so I can use it.

    It is if you can't do 11. He didn't say 1 rep max.
