To answer the original question, as long as they are not in the squat rack doing whatever nonsense while I’m waiting, who cares?
But seriously, allow me to offer an alternative point of view. Unless you are an “expert” in every sense of the word, I don’t think you have much place offering anyone any advice.
Do you know how many so called experienced lifters have looked over at me crooked when performing a zercher squat? How about a good morning (wonder how many genius’ thought I was cuttin it short on a squat). Pull thrus? Speed bench? (“Dude, you should really slow down the reps so you don’t hurt yourself and you can also get a better pump”).
Get my point? I know you’re eluding to obvious misadventures (or so I hope), but you never really know do ya?
True, but then someone would have to be a little off to correct someone your size in the first place.
LOL true but you do get the looks (the what the eff is he doing look)- or at least I used to when I went commercial. Now I have an oversized detached garage and basically what I need. The only thing I do miss is a good training partner.
But on a more salient point for instance, and I know you understand this, something as small as the knees going foward in a squat or similiar movement is not the blasphemy it is often alleged to be in some of these threads. There is more than one way to squat (as most of us know) and there are occasions when it is perfectly desirable to do so. That not doing so places less stress on the patella tendon is a given but I digress
So, I think everyone is better off minding their own damn business Or do you want to be the one to stop that gym bunny from doing stiff legged deadlifts from atop a flat bench?! Dangerous? Yes. Something we want to discourage? Heck no! LOL.
Good point you brought up. We’ve seen on this very forum where some newbie claims a pro bodybuilder is training “WRONG” because he doesn’t touch his chest with the bar or extend fully during the rep while completely ignoring that is why he got that damn big in the first place.
I have my headphones on and my mind focused on what I am doing the majority of the time. Someone would have to literally be in the process of dying for me to walk up to them out of the blue and correct them.
