Tonight I was in the gym and this guy that is a regular. You know the type that thinks he knows everything and walks around with Under Armor on. Thinking he is huge when he is really not and if he was as big as he thought he couldn’t fit through the door.
Well I was in my routine we he just started dropping dumbbells after a set of dumbbell curls. Every set the same thing. Then onto the preacher curl station the same thing.
Normally I wouldn’t say anything and I would go about my workout. Tonight was different because I have had dumbbells break on me while doing a chest press and it was not fun. Any way I was polite and asked him to stop dropping the dumbbells because I have seen to many of them break over the years and explained what had happend to me and I didn’t want it to happen again.
Needless to say he stated that he has been lifting for a long time and never seen that happen before. So he continued on dropping them. I actually wanted to go over and shove it up his backside, but I was polite and he still continued. So I asked the guy working there about it and he said he couldn’t do anything about it. I was stunned at his comment, he even went on to say this other guy throws them worse then him.
I have lifted in 10+ gyms in the past 10-15 years and not one of them ever let you drop dumbbells.
So my question to the T-Nation is am I right or did I do the wrong thing by saying something to him?
