So I'm teaching a friend how to deadlift.
All of a sudden, this one big guy who is the morning supervisor/trainer asks me: "Is he a PUSSY? Does he have a PUSSY? Then why do you teach him technique? You only teach technique to PUSSIES. He should be doing chest, back, arms, shoulders, he doesn't need ass and legs. Maybe a little legs, if he wants to."
And he fucking shouted this. And he used the most vulgar term in our language...
(btw, there actually were women at the gym at that hour, and the guy shouted this...)
"That's a weightlifting exercise. Why do you teach him that? He's a beginner and doesn't need that, he'll get hurt." (talking about the deadlift)
So... let me get this straight:
even if his back is perfectly flat...
even if the weight allows some 10 reps or more...
he'll get hurt just because... the certain exercise (in this case, DL) is dangerous and beginners shouldn't do it. Or squat. Or military press. (I'm talking about beginners who can keep their backs flat and whose knees aren't all over the place; i.e. have acceptable form)
