Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

I love people's opinions on squatting. There was one jabronie at the OSU gym with a group of cronies worshiping his feet. They were doing squats with weight that they couldn't manage going quarter depth at best, but one guy was hitting some good looking LBBS squats. The leader of the group says, "Yeah I can't go that low anymore. I don't have any cartilage left in my knees."

Wha..? I don't... No cartilage?

No no silly, you can't squat that deep because you're not strong enough, it's ok.

Seen at the gym today:

A guy doing a superset of curls in the squat rack, next to someone doing quarter squats in the squat rack next to them. The guy doing curls was also "show grunting".

The elusive female Crossfitter, such a rare sighting at the globo. Most impressive KB swings and knee high socks.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

To be fair he was using a false grip (again, with 60 kilos) and probably didn't want to drop the bar on himself.

Working at a gym has opened my eyes, man.

Guy doing tabata burpees in the hotel fitness center.

Not well -- ceiling too low to jump, and little or no actual pushup -- but he was pushing himself pretty hard.
