I hate when people give me dirty looks for yelling and slamming my weights down after using them. Also my balls are very attractive and I feel everyone should have a peek while I am blow drying them.


My old gym was very gross. One day while heading for the steam room this dude walks out the door with a 12 inch hard on and I just turned around and got the hell out of there. WTF was going on in there? 2 old guys hanging out in the waiting area buck naked watching TV together is another memory I could have done without. I could go on and on. We had multiple ball dryers, back rubs in the steam room, peeping toms in the showers all before you even made it up to work out. Weird shit. But this tread really made me laugh my ass off!

Bruh... I'm not sure how to break this to you, but I don't think that was a gym you were going to.

Can't stand the idiot that stacks on like 2 plates and change on the military or 3 plates and change on the bench only to move them 2 inches and not unrack the weights after. Easily the worst form we've ever seen. Plus he grips the weight with a paper towel only with his right hand.

No, someone isn't seriously using a paper towel as a makeshift grip or strap

His 2" range of motion comes from holding the bar super fucking wide for his not very long arms. He tends to rack the bar on the emergency catch thing. I guess when you're holding that wide, shit gets slippery.

I'd prefer them though, they push you. One guy I'm cool with that was deadlifting me really pushed me on the weight so I had to step up. Especially that he doesn't use straps and takes shorter breaks. He's a fucking beast.

True on the pushing you. Also nice to have someone I can easily ask to help spot me on bench.

Actually yea just last night this lifting buddy was doing 405 for heavy single conv deadlifts.

I told him ive never tried to figure out my 1 RM.

decided to try 315 for a single on my conventional.

Went up surprisingly easy! And this was after I just did a 4x5 of sumo DL at 355lbs.

Normally for my conventional i'm doing 255 for reps

If you're doing sumos for 355 reps then you're conventional can't be too far behind. Something is up with your form or you're not doing them enough. Also I started incorporating in certain weeks, a la Starting Strength method, a week where I'll just do like a 3x3, prior to that get up to a heavy single. And then depending on the feel (RPE) scale down a % to do your 3x3. For example last conv deadlift (PS I don't sumo) session was a 3x3 routine. So I warmed up and kept the reps fairly low until the heavy single. 135x10, 225x6, 315x3, 405x3, 455x2, 495x1. It felt a little rough and my back was sore from squats so I went to 475 which I've 3x3 before in the past. 475x3, 475x3, and decided to up the intensity because 2nd set felt easier 495x3. After that since my back was already toast, I was done. But what happens is, I keep that circa 1RM max in my routines so that I'm not only doing super heavy weight on max day every few months. Next time around, I'll go for maybe a 485 3x3 after a 515 single. FYI I still have 5x5 days for volume and then I'll have weeks of like 5x2 or so. Those are fun because you start pushing crazy weight. Watch your #'s shoot up.

Yea I haven't conventional deadlifted in a while. I've actually started doing them again recently.

Saturday I tested my 1RM after doing a 4x5 of conventional.

pulled a max of 355. Attempted 365 and could break off the ground but couldn't finish the lift.

im such weak sauce compared to you.

I've got more time in the game man. I got my weaknesses too like my damn bitch form lately is not right and I have a little shoulder pain. Last few weeks I haven't even flat benched.

But yes, my form was way off. Had someone help look over my lift and gave me a few pointers.

mainly leaning too far forward and lats not engaged enough.

I know we all complain about weight droppers but can someone explain the logic of dropping a 45 flat on the ground next to a bench press rather than leaning it on the bench so you can easily pick it up after a set rather than destroying your finger tips? The reason I complain is because I was carrying some 80s to a bench press, since all the benches were taken, and obviously it's hard to maneuver quickly if some idiot decides to drop a plate by your feet. Luckily I have quick feet and dodged it. He didn't see me coming but I was tempted to tell him to watch where he drops his plates. Honestly I just wanted to get my set in and gtfo. I let him continue his poor form bench press where the bar isn't touching the same zip code as his chest.

It's so they can start out heavy, do a set with that weight, drop a weight off, and do another set quickly after. It's called like pyramids or something, I thought. I don't know why you'd want to minimize rest or do this, because that's just asking for sloppy form as you go on. Not to mention, the risk you discussed.

You're referring to drop sets. It wasn't that. He was doing one set a time with rest in between.

I was sick for the last 2 weeks so I haven't been. Went back yesterday, and could tell I'm not as strong as I was. Having to go back down in weight.

I've noticed the mornings are not as crowded as normal. Since I go at 5 AM, we don't have too many NYRs in there.

Yeah I can't get it to work either. But yeah fuck that guy.

Saw a really bad gym experience last week. Young girl maybe 17, 18 takes a squat rack. She's doing deadlifts mind you, but usually newbs use the bottom part of the rack for deadlifts (Not sure why when you're picking it up off the ground). Anyways I had one rack and someone else had the other. For whatever reason it was PACKED and people wanted to squat. When asked how many sets I have left, I offered to work people with me but everyone declined for various reasons and preferred waiting. I told them to ask the girl since she wasn't even using the rack for her workout. She shot down everyone that wanted to use it When asked how many sets she had left, she said she didn't know. She ended up finishing 10 mins AFTER I went to another exercise. I estimate she had that rack for like 35-40 mins Funny this is next day I was using the same rack for something else and she asked if she could use the wall plug to charge her phone behind my rack. The devil in me wanted to tell her no but since I wasn't affected directly I let her. Hopefully she'll remember me next time she hogs a rack.

She was doing deadlifts for 40 minutes? Meaning taking long 5-10 minute breaks inbetween, right?
