yea man i saw some trainer working with a girl today doing 1 legged squats onto a stack of step up things. i was like wow, i could never do that, id have to tell people straight up like if you work with me we arent using anything thats inflateable, plastic, or florescent…are you sure you want this?
Maybe I’m not correctly interpreting what you’re describing, but the movement I’m visualizing is an effective one – basically a raised front lunge, right? How is that so terrible?
no, its not…and i still would say that movement sucks if youre not using weight, but it would be a huge improvement from what i saw.
think the first guy “squat til you drop” but with a green ball under him.
like where do people come up with this shit? when did gym time start looking like gym class? a bunch of fucking toys and balls, just a bunch of screwing around. if im training someone to squat, theyre fucking squatting, how difficult is that? if you cant do a damn bodyweight squat (and you arent obese) maybe you should reconsider how serious youre taking this.
then again, i never understood personal trainers anway…like why get one? you can find out anything im going to show you with a google search, like do yourself a favor, GO AND FUCKING LEARN SOMETHING.
i think id slip up and say well you know theres places like T-Nation which is like a limitless information bank and you can actually ask some people who know their shit questions? i think if youre the type of person who should be expecting to make huge improvements you would also be the type of person who is going to go out and get the shit they need and then get their shit done.
i see people saying things like “im really trying” its like you need to sit them down and say look, this isnt some b.s. thing you just need to squeak by to advance on, your effort is directly related to your results, you get out whatever you put in so dont try to convince me of anything.
its not me that has to go to sleep knowing i didnt give it my all and im not going to be standing in front of the mirror a month from now wondering if ive done anything and then making excuses as to why i didnt. its all on you so just get it done. …
but then again i dont think its something that can be explained to someone, i think something has to happen in your life to make you that type of person or you have to be born that way. there was some article probaly by TC saying how you had to be a killer, like Genghis Khan well not literally but its the same shit how it was explained
