This old fatso who always wants to use the rack to do his 145 lb squats and 80 lb military presses came up to me and asked how many sets I had left. Since I was only doing light manta ray squats, I figured I could use the platform, so I said that he could have the rack.
Him: Do you have a cot upstairs or something?
Me (giving thousand-yard stare): What.
Him: Do you have a cot upstairs?
Me: I don’t understand.
Him: I just meant, cause you always seem to be here when I’m here.
Me: That. Is. Interesting.
He’s not a dick, like the little gray man trying to be passive-aggressive. He’s an admitted New Years Resolutioner, and I just wish he could do his pussy, shameful squats in the Smith machine, or at another gym or something. Hopefully he quits soon. Thought I handled it pretty well.
Hey, I found a way to tape my own squats. Take a look at my form and see what you think. Note: 405 was easy, I just turn red in the face very easily. Also, I think I may need to consciously break at the knees right after I break at the hips to keep from doing a good morning.
