Because I monopolized the power rack for a full two hours today, some little nerdy college kid (5’4 130 for the last 2 years; also I don’t like his face) had to struggle to do his 1/4 squats (I’m sure he thought they were full squats) on the platform. He was doing 225 for sets of 5-6 oh man it was ugly and shaky and I was hoping that he would dump it (not get hurt just dump it). After this, he deadlifted 185 for sets of 5. Form wasn’t bad but who can have bad form with 185? Never mind, that’s a dumb thing to say in my gym. I’m pretty sure he did like 10 sets of deadlifts because he saw me doing like 25 sets of squats and decided that volume was the key to success. He was doing jumping lunges with 95 lbs when I left.
I know this is like the same story I tell every day but more boring. It’s fine.
This’ll cheer you guys up:

and yes yes fatman (or fatman voice in my head), i’m the bigger loser with sweating like a hog, pissing everybody off by taking the squat rack from 3:40-5:40 PM, not squatting any weight above 365, being almost twice his age, probably he just wants to look good on the beach well he doesn’t. neither do i it’s fine.
