completely insane for sure. There is levels to gym craziness. Bicep curls in the squat rack and calf raises on the leg press machine are level 1. That shit is level 58. BTW when you say "squat rack" I imagine free weights in a cage.danny_fitz wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 8:26 pmYup, it was a 'safety rack', still the risk of dropping the bar to the floor though if the grip hooks are not being controlled is still high.Mog The Almighty wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 8:15 pmSurely you mean a smith machine?danny_fitz wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 1:06 pmNolanator wrote: ↑Wed Sep 22, 2021 10:01 pm Some absolute freak had a shit haemorrhage at the gym staff this evening. Apparently one of the female staff members asked him not to do something and he flew off the handle. Called her a cúnt or something and was shepherded to the door by a male staff member.
He fully stomped around in a tantrum, pushing past people and tried walking through the cable stack when someone was doing flies. Proper red mist stuff. Shouted at the staff a bit, before finally figuring out how to go through the turnstyle while having a melt.
I asked the staff what happened. They reckoned he wasn't right in the head. I blame roid rage.
Saw something similar when some dickhead positioned himself under the squat rack in a shoulder stand position and attempted to do some kind of inverted leg press by lifting the bar with his feet, no spotters or anything. Luckily one of the staff saw what he was attempting to do and rushed over to stop him, cue mayhem as this chap objected to his routine being upset. Part of me was curious to see what 100+kg of olympic bar would do if dropped on a human head.
It is still totally bonkers but I can't imagine anyone trying that just with a barbell balanced on their feet.
The dumb thing is he'd get better results squatting with a sack of garden soil or two in his yard. All these dudes inventing special exercises are hilarious. I've seen some weird shit before - most often people using machines in an "inventive" way, sitting backwards or at weird angles or whatever ... but that one surely takes the cake.
