    i saw a kid my age doing deadlifts today, and it was so painful to watch him completely bend his back.. his partner was doing it right but didnt say a word except 'keep going' when the kid complained about lower back pain..

    im sure if i came up and told him to arch his back he'd take it as an insult because its a 'pride' thing...

    I chuckle to myself a bit when they are using bad form to throw up heavy weight.

    Yeah fuck other people in the gym UNLESS I know them (I've been at this gym for three years now and I'm just now starting to get to know the "regulars" decently) or they come to me.

    If someone comes to me and has a question I'll take time out of my workout to show them how to do shit right. Or if its gonna take too long wait until I'm finished then its all good.

    Quoted for truth. The only time I give anybody advice is if they like they're completley new at the gym and have no idea what they're doing.

    i saw this guy rack the entire smith machine with 45s. proceed to do some sort of jerking motion similar to shrugs/calf raises. he just went ape shit. he then put on some 25s and 10s. went ape shit again jerking and jumping and the plates started to fall off and roll into other people. i was impressed he could hold the weight, but i wanted to be like "the fuck are you doing?"

    except he's in a couple of my classes at college and never talks, plus we think he's a serial killer.

    that was the only exercise he did for the day.

    i appreciate it when someone tells me that im doing something incorrectly... like i just recently started to do deadlifts and i went around and asked people what is the proper way to do it... of course being a college gym... not very many people even knew what a dead lift was....

    I really don't care, I go into the gym for myself and don't pay attention to anyone other than myself.

    Back when I was young and naive I tried to help those who were going to hurt themselves. None of em wanted any part of it, and most ended up seriously injuring themselves.
