The amount of half-wits that come and try and boost their ego next to me is crazy . They load up plates on plates on plates and then proceed to squat MAYBE quarter depth. On tuesday someone did that to me and I was chuckling to myself as I went ATG. Thats my one big gym pet peeve. I just cant stand it.

 

They are the same people that will do fifty crunches then lift their shirt and look in the mirror.

 

 

"IMHO" its alot better for your shoulders than wide-gip pullups. Its really easy to get a shoulder impingement doing those. Your whole body weight is placed upon already stressed shoulder joints. No bueno.

 

I will try it 

Yep... it happens everywhere.  I mostly see it at my gym with younger guys, but it's not limited to them.

 

There's this one dickbag... total tool, real jerk to everyone...  we all laugh at him because every single exercise he does, he does half reps.

 

He's doing nothing.

 

He looks the same now that he did 5 years ago.

 

 

If he wasn't such an asshole about using the machines and working in on sets to everyone, we'd probably point it out... but we just like to stand back and watch him do nothing.

 

 

I respect someone how only lifts the bar with good form and full range of movement than some dipshit that does a 1/2 rep

Me too.  Weight means nothing.  You can lift 1000lbs, but if you're doing it wrong you're not going to improve.

 

I have a lot more respect for a guy that knows what he can and can't do and throws the appropriate weight on.

 

 

Having said that, if you can lift 1000lbs, even if you're doing it wrong, I'm not saying anything... :)

nobody goes deep squatting in my gym, and nobody does more than 2 plates.  nobody.

 

 

I'm going to be the class of my loser gym before I know it.

Where do you workout Jase?

 

 

That place Boo's bf took me to in Charlotte is a complete dungeon, but it was good as far as the equipment and all goes.

I've seen people doing that, but never tried it...

 

How do you weight it, just put a plate on your chest?  That seems a little awkward.

Not sure on that part, but I would assume that would be how.

Do you live in matthews? I go to the siskey YMCA. I literally yelled at a guy the other day because I walked away to go to the Bathroom and he took my rack WITH WEIGHT STILL ON THE BAR and was curling. No. Just no.

I invested in a 25lb weight vest from play it again sports. It was worth it.

Yeah, this would probably get your rack taken in my gym too... the dumbasses don't know how to take weights off when they're done, so we just assume they're done if they're not actually standing there...

Yeah, I live in matthews.  I used to lift at Siskey all the time 2-3 years ago.

 

 

It was way too crowded for my taste.  I think they were in the process of expanding when I left, though, so it may not be as bad now.

I have a whole bunch of articles on the reasons why squatting half-way is worse for you then deep squats. Im going to post some.
