Now I have another one. The way we met is, I took the squat rack he was using, because I saw how high the loaded bar was on the prongy-things, looked around the gym and the only guy over 6feet tall was leaving, and I thought he just abandoned the rack without clearing the bar which is a normal thing at the gym. Turned out, a guy who is an inch taller then me was using it, he just sets the bar to high for his height. I apologized and that was that. Well now we tend to run into each other on weekends and he has lots of unhelpful and long-winded tips.
Interesting how a cute guy can become not cute when they are giving one bad advice. I pulled the trainer card as soon as he started talking about the Smith machine (thanks Kyle) and he chilled out a little. Who knew lifting would bring on etiquette difficulties? I can't just say, "Shut up, you're doing it wrong."
Today I did squats, work sets 3x5x105, struggling and slow. I read somewhere that one should do the sets as quickly as possible, which was a jeez moment. I think I will continue grinding them out for now. After the three tough sets I did a 1x5x95 to top it off, also the gym was, as mentioned, distracting today. Overhead press, 3x5x60. Cleans, backed way off on weight to work on form, 5x3x65.
