I know this has been talked about a million times but for some reason I am all riled up today. Why do I care that everyone else at the gym is only doing partial range of motion and they think they are tough? Seriouslly, it doesn’t impact my life at all but when I see it I get mad and its all I can do from walking over and yelling at them.
Imparticular there is this one guy at the gym that does partial squats, partial bench and partial deads and he drives me crazy! He walks around like he is tough, is always giving others advice and really thinks he is a bad ass! Granted, the weight loaded on the bar is fairly impressive all the way until he does a rep and you realize he maybe is doing 1/2 a rep (sometimes less)!
I am sure this drives other people crazy but I just wonder why I am so petty! I am there to lift for myself so why do I care about others!!! Is my ego so fragile that it bothers me that these people think they are as strong or stronger than me?
OK - rant over - thanks for listening - I feel better now!
