    So the person isn't up to par to your ungodly level. Leave 'em alone.

    you're the reason fat/thin/young people are afraid of the gym (the ones that are strong-minded enough for it :mamoru:). the gym is a place to work hard. you're mocking them for their inexperience / beginner level. shut the hell up.

    i'm not sure it came off the right way...

    i guess it made me realize how much i've progressed... i started at about 115 at the beginning of my senior year.

    not here :o

    sorry pur... i read some stuff and found out why... and i remember hearing something a while ago about "finding a replacement for trance" :dunno:

    Well if the guy needed a spot because 115 was heavy for him, then fuck you.

    I had to dump something like 65lbs off me one time because I didn't have a spot. Do you think I give a fuck about that now? If you're feeling so high and mighty go lift at a powerlifting gym or with a group of bodybuilders and get some perspective when they're curling your squat max.

    Anyway, so fucking what if he needed a spotter at 115. At least he's trying to improve himself rather than fatasses and emo kids that'll never set foot into a gym.
