-The lifting platform is for Deadlifts, Cleans, Snatches and other "Power/Strength" movements. It is not a place to do "abs". Yesterday 2 girls decided to place some mats down on the platform and perform endless sets of crunches. I was temped to get my phone and take a picture but I really didn't want to witness this "act of awfulness" anymore so I decided to move to the other side of the gym before I bashed my head into a squat rack, repeatedly.
|Please refrain from doing "abs" on the platform.....|
|30 years from now when you get off the sauce, this is what you have to look forward to......|
|You are allowed to take these off every now and then.....|
-There is NO need to "psych" yourself up and start jumping around, shaking your head all crazy, and pumping your fists before you do lateral raises with 15lb. dumbbells.
-Please don't ask the "jacked" guy in the gym, "What supplements are you on?". Chances are he'll tell you a bunch of BS and you'll waste a good chunk of cash on buying worthless pills and powders. It also doesn't take a genius to know what he's really taking....
-If you are spending more money on supplements a month than you are real food, you really should get your priorities in order.
-When I see someone doing "full" squats, regardless of the weight, I give that person an "imaginary" high five.
-If you are doing an exercise on a BOSU ball and are about to topple over like a game of human jenga (with dumbbells) in hand- please move to an unpopulated area in the gym.
|Exercises like this should be done in an empty area of the gym.|
We'll that's about it for today- I'm sure after I lift today I could add some things. Til next time.....
