I thought a topic like this could be funny. What’s the lowest display of will or the worst performance you’ve seen in a gym?
I’ll start with 2:
- There was a day I saw a girl on the leg press, pressing 40 pounds, it left me pretty depressed, I mean does she really think it will enhance her physique or even burn calories? She might as well do standing weigthless squats, the workload would have been higher.
Anyway, I thought I had seen it all, but later in the same session, I saw a young healthy looking male on the legpress machine, moving only the feet pad, no weight!! That day, I decided not to renew my subsription to that college gym, I want to see people with more drive when I train.
- There was this middle aged housewife doing a weird shoulder exercice that I ended calling “the shower”. She just moved one yellow DB (lighter than the pinks) above her head with the elbow flexed and move her other arm in front of her parallel to the floor, and she alternated with both arms. I know it’s might be hard to picture since it MAKES NO SENSE. Anyway, picture some in the shower trying to wash his armpit while raising his arm above his head. I can’t help myself but smile when I see this, and despsie the personnal trainers at that gym too…
