I’m going to chime in here.
One time I was doing real light sets of squats, I think the 2x25 from Quattro Dynamo. I don’t remember if they were front or back, but it’s irrelevant.
This guy comes up to me in the middle of a set, and asks me if he can ask me something, or something to that effect. I give him a “13 or so out of 25 reps done my brain is gonna explode, why are you talking to me!” look and he starts to explain to me that I shouldn’t be doing my squats the way I was.
He tried to explain why my toes shouldn’t be past my toes etc, etc. I tried to explain to him how I thought that was bullshit and just increased forces elsewhere in the kinetic chain and how sports players execute similar movements all the time to no detriment. He uttered something about being a personal trainer and how he could do “400 pounds if he didn’t care about form”. My training partner at the time was laughing the whole time mind you…
I couldn’t and still can’t believe he came up to me in the middle of the set. As if he expected my kneecaps to shoot out and roll across the floor before I completed the set.
The worst part is he then put a belt on and executed the shittiest quarter squat with the knees behind the toes I’ve ever seen.[/quote]
Man that is just crazy. To tell you all that bullshit in the middle of a set mind you. And then make a fool out of himself afterward.
Why does everyone think that if someone is doing a workout different than the way they do it, its wrong.
Oh my god he has his knees in front of his toes. I must stop him. WTF.
I mean some things work better for other people.
But thats funny man.
