I remember there was a thread here a while back with some classic stories of gym idiocy in it. Anyone got any new ones? I loved reading them. I haven't seen anything totally stupid in the gym, yet - I've only been going 2 months so far. Three mega-skinny guys came in one day and walked straight to a bench which had 80kg (176lbs) on it. Even though it's not much weight, there was no way any of these guys were going to be able to lift it. Even so, the skinniest guy proceeds to lie down, his mate helps him unrack it, and then... the guy just barely manages to put enough force under it to stop it crashing full speed into his chest. It then took the combined full effort of the "lifter" and spotter to get it back up onto the rack (they really strained to do this). All 3 of them then went and did curls for the remaining time I was at the gym (and no doubt even longer). I've seen a guy wearing a belt while benching 60kg (132lbs). The only other funny thing I've experienced is hearing one guy explaining how much better the leg-press is than squats because "he can lift more" on it. Some guys here must have seen way funnier stuff?
