Have you ever encountered unexpected badassery from a small guy versus you (I'm 30, lifting for 8 years or so, weighing around 110kg/242lbs, 1m80, 14% BF at the moment. Never juiced or anything. And I'm an easy going guy, never looking for problems and getting along with like 99% of the gym)?
Today there was a tiny kid (about 60kg/132lbs, 17-18 years) doing deadlifts with terrible form (but that's not the issue). When he was done he removed the weights and let them on the ground scattered all over the place. I had to manoeuvre between the piles.
He simply walked away and I confronted him "are these your weights? Is it too much to hassle to put them back where they belong?". I didn't yell but it was not to be mistaken.
The guy looked at me with an attitude like he was going to rip me apart and was not intimitated at all. He said "I'll do it after I get my drink". Later he walked right past me, like an inch awayn looking me right in the face.
Now... He could fit in me like 2,5 times. When I get in a situation with a guy twice my size, I'd be rather like "oops shit".
Is this the attitude of youngsters?
I've always picked the path of conversation, but sometimes I guess the only thing they'll understand is a good beating.
Or do I have to be like 286lbs and shredded?
