This is just to vent a little fustration.
I havn’t been training all that long (4 months) but thanks to T-Nation at least i know that im on my way. Today was my leg day and as such i just minding my own business doing my squats, stifflegged deads etc, when some dumb ass biginner “expert” decides that he must set me right with my training.
Firstly he tells me that i should be doing at least 8-12 reps, and that i should half the weight that im doing and do it a lot slower etc etc etc… at which point i politly asked him how long he had been training for… his reply: “oh about a month now, but im studying this stuff”.
My blood started to boil. i know nothing. I know i know nothing. But come on this guy was a dead set idiot. Took me 15 min just to get rid of this moron, i had bugger all time before work to get the training done, i did not have time for the fool.
So i guess my question is this: What makes people like this think that as soon as they step into a gym, pull on some gloves and hop on a machine think that they are qualified to give anyone advice - no scratch that INTRUCTION?!
Im having a good laugh about it now… Thanks guys just needed to vent!
