I often wonder about this when i’m standing in the gym watching people doing incredibly dumb things. Sometimes its form issues - the other night a beginer was struggling to bench 135 lbs and he kept moving his head/ neck like he was an owl - other times I see guys squating on their toes instead of their heels - some times its just people who have no idea what they’re doing, i.e. this bone skinny kid who couldn’t have weighed 140 lbs soaking wet spent an hour doing shoulder presses and curls before “finishing it off” with 6 sets of upright rows, or the kid who’s spent an hour and a half hitting his chest from every conceivable angle using every conceivable machine, yet wouldn’t know what back and leg work was if it was sleeping with his sister.
Now I always keep my mouth shut. But should I? I think a lot of people have gotten some really bad advice over the years about training. I also think that most of those people will eventually give up. But some might stick around and become actual T-men if only someone would give them some good advice.
What do you guys think?
