    last week i have seen this guy who was missing his left hand rep'n 225 on bench.

    i felt bad for him simply because everybody kept running up to him because they thought he would need a spot.
    if he neded a spot he'll ask.

    everytime i go to the gym there is a guy there playing raquetball with only 1 arm. i guess you only need 1 arm for raquetball really, but it's still not something you see everday. plus he owns everyone.

    also there is always a guy there that has what me and my friends call the "reverse bicep". normally you have a gap when you flex your bicep from your forearm to the beginning of your bicep. this guy does on 1 arm but on his other arm the gap is from the end of his bicep to his shoulder, so it's on the other side if that makes any sense. one day we finally asked him what the deal was and he says he got in a skydiving accident and a cord go rapped around it or something and tore it completely off! ow.

    62 year old guy squatting 455lb 3x10 to parallel. I talked to him and he apparently pulls 500+lb and competes.

    Not really in the gym but sports related. I had a soccer coach who had broken his leg pretty bad while playing when he was younger. I don't know why but to fix it the doctors wrapped one of his lower leg muscles, I guess part of the calf or some other one around the front of his shin. So standing still he had this big bulge along the front of his shin, he could flex it and everything.

    jesus that is amazing.

    Instead of staying home all day feeling sorry for yourself, these guys get out there and own people who are at an advantage.
    Their determination is very inspiring.

    my $0.02..
    I saw this one new girl go straight to the bench press and working 20lb on each side. i know its not a lot but i never see women come even close to the free weight section. props to her not being intimidated by the guys around her.

    the 62 year old competative BBer at my gym. He's not that badass but 10 years ago he was a 2 pack a day smoker and full blown alcoholic. Now he's bigger and more bad ass than any 20's guy at my gym.
