OK, so I run into my roommate's buddy at the gym the other day. He's a pretty naturally big dude, about 6'1 and 195. I see him struggling with 40's on dumbell press, failing when trying to bench, etc. So I was doing skull crushers and he was standing next to me doing hammer curls. Now, this dude and I know eachother. We're not really friends, we don't hang out together, but he's a cool guy. So I talk to him for a little bit. I know he broke his ankle a while back and had stopped lifting all together for a while. Me: "Wassup Devon, first day back?" Him: "Yeah man" Me: "How ya feeling?" Him: "Tired, to be expected. I feel pretty good though, like I didn't lose that much strength." Now, mind you, I was benching behind this dude before and watched him fail trying to do 1 rep of 185 pounds. Like, dead on the chest, didn't move, failed. And watched him struggle and shake with 40 pound dumbells on flat bench dumbell press. Me: "Oh yeah? Good, you'll be back into it in no time" Him: "Yeah, I put up 225 3 times. Felt good." Me (not wanting to call him on it, but doing the face): "Cool man, we'll I'll see ya around." Now, not only did he look weak with horrible form, but he lies about it too. I knew he'd been out for like 6 months, I'm not going to care. Everyone starts somewhere. But now you look like a complete douchebag also. It's like people who load up 400 pounds on a squat bar and go 1/3 of the way down. You know you didn't really do shit and you know it, so what are you getting out of it?
