Having gone to the gym for a few years now I have seen a few strange exercises/ strange ways to perform exercises in my time. I watched some of the videos in the other threads and it got me thinking about this subject. I am sure everyone has seen dumbbell/barbell curls done with lots of swing and momentum for example. I saw a guy once do deadlifts from the floor and then whilst standing up with the weight proceed to swing the weight up by a few inches up to his stomach. I had no idea what this was supposed to do (I assumed he was trying to work his lats?) and when I asked him he said he was doing it for his deltoids? Last year I also saw a few small guys in my gym walk over to the Smith machine and load the bar with four 20k plates (about 180k including the bar) each side. The whole gym stopped to look as one of the guys got under the bar to bench it. What he actually did was unhook the bar from the rack and hold it for about five seconds (his arms trembling) and then re rack it and then they proceeded to hi five each other! I guess they were trying to do some Bruce Lee isometric shit but from looking at them it didn't seem to be working and it was pretty hilarious! I also saw some sprinter doing one legged squats with 40kg on a box with disastrous results. He didn't hurt himself but it was obvious that he was going to fall and the deafening noise which accompanied his fall attracted everyone's attention.
