Bi-cep Boyzzzzzzzzz.

Now, my gym, we didnt have any...now that i think about it, the members in my place are pretty decent, they all seem to know what they are doing. That changed today with the arrival of three young fella's. What the fcuk they where trying to accomplish i have no idea!...how about warming by loading an ez-bar on the preacher bench with ohhhhhhh lets say 100KG!!!!!, yea that'll get the blood flowing!........(three p!ss poor attempts later)......."yea i dont like that one mate, never thought it was that good!."..........next the lat pull down........."yea this does the shoulders" he said to his mates.......umm yes a suitable weight of around 120kg for these guys seemed right..........(three agonizing attmepts later)........"fcuk yea man my shoulders are ""wrecked"", after them"....probobly becauuse he near dislocated his arms from his sockets!.

What the hell do ya do with these people!!!!!!????????

    Recommend that they do squats with at least 300kg and remove the safety pins. Should keep them out the gym for 6-12months.

    Hum loudly and avoid eye-contact with them. Nah mate, I wouldnt worry too much, they're more to be pitied. My gyms full of them, although the two chavs that came running in topless to try the bicep curl machine takes some beating lol.

    you could do 3 things:

    1) you being that bit more knowledgeable, show them the right way.
    2) don't do anything and let them learn by themselves.
    3) take the piss and urge them more that they are doing the right thing and buy them a pint afterwards

    good response budo.

    i would personally do some curls next to them using proper form, maybe theyd learn that way?

    ive seen guys do excercises with better form and less weight since they saw how i do it the proper way

    thats not very helpful!

    just show how its done if anything, stay with them for two mins, tell them to do it their way, then after get them to do it with proper form and ask them which way feels better for the bicep. im sure theyll realise which way is beneficial in less than 3 secs.

    Got a old man at our gym,all he wants to do is chat to people constantly even as you lift and "train" his biceps,heres how.

    1/Place towel under arms
    2/put about 60kg on the precher [he weigh's like 9 stone]
    3/Raise bar to face
    4/lower bar 3inchs Tops! from face
    5/grunt at extreme volume
    repeat steps 3 - 5

    Has he been told how to do it correctly?,yes he has but apprently if you go for a smaller range of motion [read none] then you get a better burn because you'll manage more reps.

    Ahhh very logical.Partial reps are the way to go people,we know nothing!

    I find the smaller kids and that in the gym ask me questions. They see I'm bigger and ask about stuff. Then you tell 'em, they listen, and ask more.

    Not saying I'm the best coach, or most knowledgable, but being bigger than average (one of biggest in gym) seems to make them listen to you.

    I spose I'm more likely to take advice from BBig than a small personal trainer in my gym, 'cos you can see that the bigger guy MUST have gotten somethign right

    If they want advice give it. If they are risking serious injury perhaps something should be said, if they take your advice and are prepared to listen then good, if not then don't bother again and let them get on with it IMO.

    Everyone has to start somewhere, but the gym can be a very dangerous place even when you know what your doing.

    The most annoying guys are the ones that train like tossers, have no idea and are actually pretty big.

    i generally find this type of punter doesnt last long in the training world

    either injury (through poor technique as decribed above) boredom or a lack of gains due to living on mcdonalds and alco pops, usually means their gym membership is cancelled within a few months, especially if they have already had their beer it up holiday for the summer

    if they do stick around then i would suggest offering help and advice when you know the commitment is there and the guidance may aid them to a good body

    i know some body builders feel these guys devalue the hard work put in by those in it for the long run. at the end of the day you get out what you put in

    Our gym is full of them. They have been told by the owner numerous times but do not listen. After all, it's not cool to lift light weights..

    There was a set of guys doing deads with the most arched backs ever and lifting so fast that the bar was waving all over the place. One of the bigger fairly experienced guys was just watching in horror as was I. I was supprised they didnt break their backs. The bad thing was one out of the 3 guys was experienced and his form spot on, yet he failed to correct them.

    Like most they will need to learn before they can get anything out of it. When there aim of an amazing body in two weeks is shattered when it doesnt happen, they will either go on a mission to find out why and read up or ask, or will just quit.
    I hate that period right after Crimbo in the gym, its flooded with people on new years resoloutions to get fit etc when they have no knowledge how too and loose motivation in no time. If only they bothered to read up or bite the bullet and ask someone
