Are you guys/ladies ever asked for advice in the gym on how to do exercises ? I ask since lately I have been asked quite a few number of times re: the exercises I have been seen doing… (e.g., farmers walks, floor slides using arms AKA “C. Thibodeau’s shoulder glider”, walking cross pushups, C. Waterbury’s slide pushups, overhead squats, etc.
I do these when I need a kick in the ass and for their general endurance/hypertrophic qualities.
The runts think I am either a freak or a nut (big SMILE) but it’s not rocket science; I learned all this shit through this website ! Sorry to vent, but I just needed to get this off my chest; that you give people credible bases and sources of valuable info to start learning something and they don’t so much as give it a look. How can you not get judgemental when these same people look the same year in, year out, pushing the same poundages ?
NOW, THE FRUSTRATING PART: I tell people "Hey man, check out this website; it helped me get through some tough workouts, etc. and then I see them a few weeks later, still doing the same thing… it kills me… If knowledge is so powerful, 85% of the guys in my local YMCA are still chimps with a rock and a coconut… I don’t know maybe it’s time for a new gym…
Can any of you guys relate ?
