I’m working out at the gym yesterday. There’s only a few people there and I see this kid come in. He’s extremely skinny and kind of wandering around mostly just doing all sorts of curls. From the way he looks around at others you get the feeling he’s kind of embarrassed.
Anyway, I felt like asking him some questions, maybe offering him some training advice and referring him to T-Nation. But I didn’t want to make him feel like an idiot either. What do you think about this? Do you guys ever offer advice or do you wait until they ask you something? [/quote]
I’ll offer advice in a polite way. I’m fairly big and strong, in my 40s, and a chiropractor who has taken ART. 2 reasons why, I can get business by introducing myself and I can help someone.
Most times it’s been accepted graciously, since I’ll approach them politely. a young guy like that is often intimidated byt eh gym , so an advanced older guy is often taken seriously advice wise.
Woemn will often accpet help if you are polite about it. I’ll normally only offer advice if it seems as if they don’t know how to use the machine or do the exercise correctly, or if they might do soemthign that hurts them.
