Im not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I wanted to know what kinds of weird things people have seen while at the gym in regards to exercises, lifting techniques, strange lifting atire, and people just doing some of the strangest things you have ever seen.
For example… One day I walked into the gym and saw two guys doing what appeared to be manual bicep curls and press downs with a towel (huh?). I then continued walking toward the back of the gym where the squat racks are (it was leg day) and I have to wait because both racks were taken as was the power rack. Then something else caught my eye…the guy in the squat rack was squating backwards!!!
In addition to this my training partner and I regularly see this small asian guy doing the same routine at least 3 times a week. A few sets of improper half rep barbell curls superseted with what appear to be a strange variation of RDL’s with a 40 pound dumbell. He usually follows this up with some standing overhead tricep extentions that look more like pullovers. Then he promply leaves the gym.
