    I saw some dumbass "deadlifting" today.

    He was in the squat rack and had the barbell resting across those safety bars or whatever they are called. I counted twelve plates on the bar, so about six hundred pounds. He would reach down and lift the bar about three or four inches and scream while his partner counted to ten loudly and then he'd drop the weight. It didn't look like he was supporting the weight with his shoulder or back musculature, he just let it hang there ripping the fuck out of his tendons. What an ass.

    I don't normally pay attention to what everyone else is doing at the gym but we only have one power rack and it's mega irritating when someone ass is wasting the space while I'm waiting to squat.

    med school students are idiots when it comes to the gym

    Lifting in sandals/flip-flops always bothers me.

    Also ,two kids training to be more "explosive" on their bench were laying on the flat bench, throwing the bar about 5 inches up and catching it. I was just waiting for it to miss one of their hands and knock out a few teeth.

    I saw a guy shit himself on the decline bench. He shit a few reps into his last set. He either didn't notice he'd shit, or he was really hardcore b/c he finished his set!

    I saw something really funny today. I literally started laughing at him because it was just so funny. He was on the squat press machine, the guy weighed maybe 140 pounds? He had 8 plates per side and would do quarter reps...it cracked me up.
