    . . . and though I'm glad he went (he's 5' 10" 243, no muscle, poor posture, unhealthy, yadda yadda and I'm really trying to help motivate him to get healthier), he acted like a complete moron. Locking his knees on the leg press, lifting free weight bbs with way too much weight on them (and crooked as sin, I might add), slamming the weights down after 3 reps or so. What is wrong with certain people that they think they're right, even if they've no experience in a certain area whatsoever? :rolleyes:

    Where did you learn to lift? Was it a trainer or experienced friend? Or do most guys just start lifting and change by watching others/getting made fun of/getting yelled at?

    I observe and I read Arnolds Bible :)

    And on top of observing, I was told never to do what others do......the guy who told me that was 100% correct ;)

    I didn't say a single word to him - I was busy with my own workouts. I just took note of his poor form in between sets. I'd never talk down to a guy in the gym - how embarassing!

    He was doing flat/incline bench with the bbs - looked like 50 or 60 lbs - and his arms looked like big floppy noodles. :o

    ^^ Word. But this guy doesn't work out. Ever. And this is the first time he's gone to the gym since childhood. It would just be nice to see someone trying to do it right the first time - not just walking in the the macho man attitude and using shitty form.

    well I'm sure in the short amount of time that this decision was made he didn't look into proper form, maybe you could stop being so elitist and try to help him out?

    pics of you?

    Why do I mean dumbbells? He used barbells. :???:

    Pics of me in my log. I'm nothing worth looking at now - a fatty.

    I don't get how I'm being elite about this . . . how would you respond if a fatty walked up to you and said you were lifting too much weight/lifting crooked/etc.?

    he was using 50-60lb barbells? the way you saidi t just made it sound like db's

    how would I respond? I'd tell him to shut the fuck up bodybuilder man... but I've been doing this... if it were my first time I'd listen carefully, if it's a pride thing, try to have another guy you know do it for you.... I wish to fuck someone woulda taught me how to do exercises correctly when I was in high school... I always squatted knee first, bench was pretty narrow grip, lying like a dead fish, etc etc etc...

    Well 2 diff benches (flat, incline) 2 diff bbs. My bad.

    Anyhow. I was just venting/seeing what the general concensus on learning how to lift was.
