I know we like to talk about shit that annoys us when we watch other people in the gym. I was wondering if anyone ever got a little advice from someone that actually helped.
Maybe it was someone you knew, or not, but something where what they said actually helped.
*New Trainer is walking over and I am squating. I feel it coming and I don’t want any of it. I can feel him watching my last set and as I finish he asks if I need help stripping the bar. I said sure. At this point I am thinking he is going to say “you are going too deep” or “that is bad for your knees” etc.
He proceeds to say he noticed that my left heel “deloads” a little and I might want to stay aware next time I squat. It doesn’t come off the ground but he could see a shift. I told him thanks and went on to finish my workout.
Next time I squat I pay some extra attention and by God he was right. It helped me “get back into my left hip” and helped my lift. The first time in a while I have gotten help from a total stranger in gym for some time.
(This could be a very short thread.)
