    This is prompted by an experience I had this weekend. I was spotting Mrs. on the bench. The bench is right next to the preacher curl thing. This African dude asked me, in broken English, for "help."

    So, thinking he needs a spot, I walk over. He asked me to put one hand on his shoulder and the other on his chin and push back while he twists his head :hsugh: So I'm thinking maybe he has a crick or something...then he asks me to do the other side.

    :wtf:

    No requests have ever been "that" strange before.

    I guess I would have to say one day a guy came up to me and started talkign to me about exercises and supplements (trying to get advice from me) and after a 20min conversation I said I had to get back to my workout.... at which point he asked if he could just follow me around and take notes of all the exercises I was doing and what rep ranges, etc...
    I thought it was pretty odd.

    Another time something similar happened, but this guy asked if I could do all his workouts with him and show him proper form and all that.
    This one actually got me yelled at because I worked for the gym, but I was not on the clock at the time. I run the rockwall inside our gym, and some of the personal trainers knew who I was and complained to the manager that I was stealing business by giving out free advice and free training :mamoru:
    I told them the guy was a friend of mine and they could suck my cock.
    Some guy trying to get started with the very basics doesn't need a $90/hour personal trainer who doesn't know shit anyway.

    Some guy asks me to spot him doing 75lb db incline shoulder presses. I was like :wtf:

    So I stood behind him and lightly tapped my fingers to his elbows for the last few reps and he had no trouble getting it up. I'm the best trainer ever :big grin:

    Saw this fatass bust out of the locker room in only a small towel sprinting across the weight room towards the front desk. Titties bouncing around everywhere.. It was pretty funny/shocking. Apparently some dude passed out in the sauna and he was trying to get him some help.

    I've witnessed something kinda like this, except it was at school, there was no towel involved, and the fat kid had down syndrome. :hsugh:

    some asian dude (no disrespect TZ, evo, etc) was literally in front of the mirror in the locker room today for about a good 5-10 minutes staring at himself from different angles BUTT ASS NAKED. I normally ignore naked dudes in the locker room but he was seriously standing there small penis and all for such a long time. He wasn't checking out his muscles either because he had none. I honestly felt bad for the guy :o

    nothing. I just don't think you need to spot for that. What's going to happen if you can't put it up? You drop it and no damage is done. :dunno:

    It's got nothing to do with the weight. It could be 200lbs. The point is that if you can't put it up you drop it on the ground. I'm only going to spot people who might get hurt.

    Just last night as I walked into the locker room some kid who didnt speak English handed me a camera and wanted me to take pictures of him. He was very excited after I snapped the picts and gave him his camera back...so much so he began to give a fist pump.
