Globo-Gym Meltdown!

Want to cause an absolute meltdown at a Globo?

Try a barbell side press, or a one-armed overhead press. I think not even an O-lift will scare people faster.

Depends what kind of Globo gym you go to. I do these all the time and nobody gives me any weird looks. Then again if it were Curves or Planet fitness...

Re: Globo-Gym Meltdown!

I think the WOD I did that got me the most weird looks was the inverted burpee workout.

LOL, same here!

Speaking of Planet Fitness... I'm going home this summer (I'm a student), and the closest gym is... Planet Fitness. Will they really kick me out if I do deads?

But really, can you blame them?

On a separate note, doing a dual barbell farmer's walk ( One barbell in each hand, loaded with plates) should be on the list of ways to freak out people.
