    he was talking to some guy about shitty form and showing him how to improve it
    (the guy was doing bent-over db rows jerking the weight up off of the floor and popping down to make it seem like he was working with a full ROM... hard to explain...)

    the guy says: "well, it's working, so i must be doing something right"
    the trainer says: "just because you're seeing improvement doesn't mean that you're doing it right" and walked away

    this is one of the trainers who actually looks like he lifts on a regular basis, too

    Shouldn't workout productivity shoot through the roof when she comes in? You know, like you start your warmup bench of the day with saaaaaaaaaaaay.......a small house? :rofl:

    LOL the trainers at my 24hr club are the epitome of the highest level of douchebaggery. i was doing curls once on a plate loaded machine, relatively light load, but i was struggling toward the end of my set ~12-15 reps. one of hte trainers, and old guy maybe in his mid 40s, is trying to impress a prospective client, goes and does a set with while im resting in between sets, (doesn't even ask to work in). after his set, i started clapping :mamoru:

    and last week, there's these two guys working out, one spotting the other, while the other is screaming his lungs out. same old guy trainer, starts laughing, im nearby talking to a friend, overhear him chuckle, and i say to trainer (cuz i think he's a jackass):"what's so funny about someone pushing themself?" i was wearing a sleeveless shirt that day too :hsugh:

    well, today it happened again. im sitting in the power rack room before my set of incline, i see these 4 high school kids standing around 133 lbs. the fucking homo is shirtless, picks up the bar, i figure he'd be doing hang cleans, but no. he drops the shit on the ground so it bounces up and basically looks like he's doing the limbo to get under the bar and the other guys fucking cheer him on :ugh:

    Those guys are the best. They come in 3-6 at a time, with their SENIORS 2008 shirts on with the sleeves and half of the torso sides of the shits cut off, weighing in at a whole 130-150lbs each and all crowd around 2-3 machines...never actually using them or using them correctly. All while talking nonsense and gawking at everyone in there who is actually training. Erks the fuck out of me!!! I especially when they use equipment and then no clean it off. Calling the entire group out for shit like that while the gym is full and everyone watching is a good time, though. :big grin:

    I'm sure she just comes to the FSU gym for the attention, considering i haven't seen her in there until she became famous.

    Perhaps i just wasn't looking for her, but i don't think a good looking girl like that would go unoticed....:eek3:

    It's also counter productive to lifting big because if you're screaming with a lot of weight on your back and you lose all your air...well, thats not good.
