Alright, I just got back from lifting and I had to get this out because I’m still quite stunned. I was just finishing up my workout today and doing some core work. I look into our pretty boy mirrors we have and notice some of the dumbest stuff I’ve ever seen in my life. These two guys (who looked the part of guys that had never lifted before in their life) were benching.
The guy getting ready to bench was first of all, laying backwards on the bench (had his head where your mid-back should be). He asks the other guy to spot him (when he’s trying to bench 85 pounds), and the guy says, “Hold on, let me get a belt”. As if this wasn’t pointless enough, he grabs a dip belt, puts it on and procedes to spot his buddy. I didn’t laugh because I was too stunned. I look around to see if anyone else is noticing this and see that the guys next to me are doing curls in the squat rack. I figure they don’t know any better either so I grab my stuff and call it a day.
Honestly, if anyone can beat that, there are dumber people out there than I thought. Please though, bring on your dumbest story.
