Pissed off at the gym, I agree.... but...
I lift at Gold's in Dover Delaware, and let me tell you, the music is terrible. Ima get an mp3 player soon.
I have to say, years ago I was in the gym with a friend and we decided to see how much weight we could squat. (neither of us lifted seriously) we started with 225 and kept adding 45's after one rep. He did 405 once, with bad form and not all the way down. I then did 495 the same way, with terrible form. We did not realize the danger we were getting ourselves into, I wanted to try 500, then this guy who looked like Hulk Hogan walked over to me and said, " you are lifting way to much weight, you should be squatting 225 for reps, I don't want to see either of you boys get hurt." I thanked him and listened to his advice.
What I am trying to say is this guy was a pro lifter, and he still talked to us like we were family. I think it is important to be a good role model to younger inexperienced people in the gym. He really helped us out, and saved us from possible injury, I will never forget that.

If i see someone in the gym that looks halfway dedicated i will help them best i can . But what most will complain about are the assholes who just take up space..

it wasn't the Hulkster, would have been cool if it were, this was in '84 He was still huge then. I have hung out a few times with Diamond Jack Hogan in Jillian's Annapolis years back....
Glad to hear you are a positive influence in the gym. Keep it up!

If I see a novice doing something wrong and I have a min in between reps I'll show the person the proper form and all the time the ppl are very thankful.....when I was young training at Golds I had guys show me the ins and outs so I'm just following their foot steps...I was always very grateful these guys took a min to correct me,and I too never forgot that

Would you guys be upset if you were a newbie and a woman helped you with bad form? Where I work out we get a LOT of young sailors that have NO clue and I've seen serious injuries in the making...so I give them tips. Some are cool with it....others give me the I can't believe a chick is telling ME how to lift weights look. Forget my arms are bigger and better developed than theirs are.
Sorry to hijack thread.

I would take the advice from a woman.. What do you say when they decline? You should be like "If you knew how to train, I wouldn't be making a fool out of you, Your form stinks like burning garbage" LOL

LOL...Good looking out Barbi.. I myself, give advice.. For some reason i can tell if someone is needing the advice, and wants the knowledge, compared to someone who comes in once every 3 months.. I look out for everybody at my gym... When you put so much heart and effort into your workouts, and i notice something is not correct.. I go over and offer advice..
