Default People at the gym who makes your w/o funnier

You have seen them. Those guys who dont know how to lift and are far to ignorant and self confident to pick up any bit of advice you throw at them, if you even bother trying.

Well yesterday a quite funny episode happend during my session.

I was doing some DB flyes and there is like 6 benches in a row infront of the DB stands.

On the bench next to mine there was 5-6 albanian guys in their early 20's doing DB chest presses. Their leader (i use to se him as their leader becouse hes always telling his mates how to lift and hes a bit more muscular than the other ones, but this guy cant weigh more than 130lbs or so) was in a lifting frenzy and asking his underdogs for more weight, "i want the 120lbs! Bring em!" (120 DB) and so they did. It took 2 tiny guys to fetch each DB and when giving them to him one of them got his fingers under the DB while putting it down in the leaders lap before he layed down, he swore in a foreign language and did a little funny dance while holding his fingers.
It didnt stop there. He really maxed on those DB's! Couldnt lift em, couldnt even hold them in his lap without grunting and wrinkle his face, and it took 2 spotters on each side to do 2 half rom reps. I lay down on the bench beside them and when the finger thing happend i lost focus and started laughing.

This really made my mood rise and even if it ruined my set it was all worth it



Post your funny gym storys here guys n gals and have a great tuesday!

had a training session with a client a while back.
we was going to use the machine row, and I explained how it worked, what muscles was involved etc.

so when i told her to sit down,
she just turned around and sat with the chest plate as a back support. looking at me encouraged and saying "what now?"

looking at this women, knowing that somewhere along my explenation i totally failed. trying not to laugh, saying:
"first you turn around,sitting against the machine, not from it."

not real funny, but it'd made my day yesterday.

yesterday i was working out in my cousins gym.

there was this guy age 40-50 who was rediculously huge, roided out huge, about 5'6"-5'8". although huge, he just looked like a weird grose ball of muscle.

he was pacing around the gym looking for clamps. he looked like he was going to kill the next person who got in his way.

another time he asked a little nerdy guy if he was still using this one bench. the guy said no he could take it, but later he wanted to use. this pissed the guy off and after he left he started cussing and freaking out with his friends.

he did this the whole time like he owned the place.

so i was just joking with my cousin, saying i should go and just walk over and take the clamps of his bar like it was nothing......

..... you had to be there, it was funny if you were there

____________________

another funny thing- he told this kid he was lifting with, who was just fat and weak as ****, that with his build he could play college football and he should try to walk on. i found it hilarious because the kid was like 5' 6" and fat and useless.... idk

There was a guy who looked around like a beast. Dragged a bench in the squat rack and started squatting. Sat down on the bench with the barbell on his back and got back up, like box squats .... only for the warm up sets.

He proceeded to box squat 315 lbs for work sets, without ever getting his a$$ close to the bench, grunting all the time like he was carrying the world.

In the next rack was a ripped dude, about 6'0-6'1, 210-220, peacefully squatting 5 plates for 5 rep sets getting deep in the hole, no spotter or safety pins the squat rack.

I would have loved to be a fly on the wall for that one.

My roommate/lifting partner split his boxers right down the middle deep in the hole the other week. He stopped at the top of the rep and asked if his shorts were blown wide open. I reassured him they were not. We had a great laugh.
