Default The gym-goer

I got to the gym last night and saw the barbell area was in use, three guys doing a circuit with the barbell, leg press and abs curler (I think); they'd been doing squats because the bar had padding on it...so, I left them to their circuit training. I think, from the sound of it, they had come across from Norway, so they could have been on hols or here attending some function or other.

So, I picked out the chest press and decided to start with those...though I was really hoping to get to use the barbell so that I could try the straps out. I set everything up, seat at the right height, weightload plugged in and started pushing...and pushing...and pushing; then I tried pushing again...



....the thing just would NOT move...not even a millimeter...





...pretty sure, I had the right weightload plugged in, YEP, no problem there...





...then it dawned on me...



















...I was on the wrong damn machine...and should have been pushing upwards, because I was sat on the shoulder press machine...






It was really embarrassing

Oh my god, that's amazing. I'm laughing right now just imagining you setting everything then just pushing with every fiber of your being.

That just made my day.

Funny you should mention that, there was a guy watching me...I calmly got off the machine, rolled my eyes, raised my eyebrows, smiled and went to look for the right machine

That is why I avoid machines. I walk into Gold's Gym and don't know where to begin...I feel like an idiot.
