So today I was tucked away in the back corner of my gym doing deadlifts, minding my own business. I’ve been to lazy to get some proper shoes for DL’ing, so I was wearing my socks. I finished my last rep and turn around and one of the in house trainers looks like he is trying to tell me something. I see his mouth moving but all I hear is metallica in my headphones.
So I take off my headphones and say “sorry, I didn’t catch what you were saying”, “put on your shoes” he says. I was totally caught off guard and said in a confused voice “why?”. He proceeds to give me a long list of reasons why I need to put my shoes on, including, it’s bad for me, looks bad for the gym, blah blah blah.
I was in no mood to argue so I just said “fine” and put on my shoes.
Man I can’t wait to have my own setup or find a proper gym, all the chalk-ie, sock-footed deadlifitng I want! Until then, time to get some chuck taylors.
