So I’m at the gym last night, and two guys walk in. They’re both about 150-160lbs… the sad thing is one of thems like 6’3. They both immediately hit the bench press (of course), then they go to the dumbbell rack (of course). They then proceed to whip out some wicked hammer curls, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. It was so ridiculous that I just had to video tape it lol. The one pretty much kept his arms locked in a 90 degree position and used his shoulders to move the dumbbell up to his face.
The tall gangling one stood there right next to his butt buddy and flung the weight around like a person having a seizure. I understand people who have never been shown the right way to lift making mistakes… every one of us started out not knowing what we were doing. But I thought it was common sense that flinging the weight around was not going to do anything for you (except maybe throw out your back). It honestly looked like a Saturday night live skit.
