Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but the "idiot in the gym" thread no longer exists. Some new kid at my gym, I've talked to him once or twice and I know his goal is to "get big and strong" told him to Google Rippetoe and hoped for the best. However I am a short, bald, hairy guy. A couple of weeks later I see him with on of the gym's personal trainers (who obviously knows more than me because he is tall and athletic) he leads him through this routine: -One legged box squats while flailing ten pound weights at his side. (about 3*10) -Smith machine squats with his feet almost three feet in front of him, pretty much a wall sit with 90 lbs on the bar WHILE the personal trainer stood behind him and curled up the weight. (Yelling "Good job!" the whole time) (1 set of 10) -Seated leg curl machine with 10 lbs (to failure) At that point I left but I have never wanted to slap someone more in my entire life.
