FUNIEST SHIT EVER I'VE EVER SEEN AT THE GYM
Right after dmaipa posted his story i hit the gym and saw something great! this is it:
There was a guy looking for a squat rack. As soon as i saw he had some erganomic (sp) light blue pad for the bar i knew shit was about to get funny.
Me and my cousin were using a squat rack to load the bar up for deadlifts and other shit and i still had front squats to do. Since at the time we were doing rows, i offered for him to grab another bar and use the rack. he mumbled some shit and then put his stuff down and got a bar.
I continued my rows. He then puts his weird as blue thing on the bar and proceded to back squat 135 for a few reps (this was after lighter warm up sets).
I just minded my business and started working on sumo pulls.
He asked me if my cousin and i play sports. I told him my cousin plays college football and that i just like lifting heavy as shit(i left out the heavy as shit part). He asked what school we went to and i told him what high school i went to. then he asked if i was a senior or junior. I dont look any older than a sophmore, but i took this as a compliment. still this guy just seemed weird to me.
After the power rack opened up he moved over there and thanked me for making room for him previously. I moved on to do front squats with the weight he had for back squats. He of course commented on this and jokingly said "im embarassed".
when im getting ready to do my last set of front squats i see something in the mirror. This guy is wedging himself under the bar with the bar at pelvis level. He then puts a 4 inch-ish box under his back....
i look away towards my bar to get ready and then my cousin says "PORNSTAR".
I have no clue what hes talking about, but i look around.
The guy is doing "POWER HUMPS" with 155lbs. I just cracked up and this took my mind off the pain of the front squats.
For the record this guy looked like the sterotypical porn guy (not old school "moustace" guy).
this made my day!
*****SORRY if this is a real exercise, but it just made me crack up******
Best squat rack thing I've ever seen was someone doing curls with the 10's on each side. One of the funnest things I've seen.
I did see someone practicing his golf swing on the cable cross machine - I was like WTF is he doing, had to pause and look across the gym to see this guy trying to do golf swings with the cables. Some of the things you see in the gym are funny. Makes for an entertaining workout some days!
