I''ve recently done an instructors course and the guy who was doing it was pretty smart, phd and shit etc, 15yrs background of studying and training folk....anyway we were practicing deadlift, empty plastic bar, group full of non-trained folk, woman and so on.
He comes over to me during my demonstration of it and says 'you deadlift, i can tell cos your form looks perfect' im like yep, was doing it last night heavy. He's like 'good, how much are you doing?', im like 'i've just hit 440lb (im 5'10, bout 180lbs)' and he's like 'very nice, maybe you should do it with a wider stance then...blah blah etc,' and im like 'i would do but thats just my conventional'....anyway, some other guy says to the tutor 'do you deadlift,' trainers like 'nope, i haven't trained for over 12yrs' he then starts chatting to me again and goes 'it's still a good lift like that but i could do 550lb because of my motor skills, knowledge and technique even though ive never lifted heavy.'
WTF fuck, dudes alittle ginger guy, weighs about 130lb and not an ounce of muscle, i was left gobsmacked and didn't wanna show him up or put my foot in so just stood their...gobsmacked!
