I saw some guy today doing one arm dumbbell rows with a weight belt on. To make matters even better he was wearing a shirt that said "bro do you even lift?"

Maybe he didn't feel like taking the belt all the way off after deadlifts. Do YOU even lift?

I saw these two guys on the squat rack curling with a 10 on each side with cables attached to the bar. It was a true face palm moment

I always wear a belt when I DB row. Maybe he has a bad back? Maybe he was doing heavy ass DB row's?

In Korea, it seems popular to do 1/8th rep bench press and leg press. Guys load the plates, let it lower about 1-1.5 inches and back up. So silly. Halve the weight and still doubt they could do a real rep. - And no surprise, they look exactly the same year after year. There are only three guys in my gym who improve their body on a yearly basis - the rest just spin their wheels

I guess I didnt consider the bad back scenario. It looked pretty loose though. @eknight I guess it looked to me like he had it on as an accessory. He followed it up with curls and no deadlifts. It has its place just not gonna see me doing curls with a weight belt.
@wannabemuscular I do indeed lift.

I thought you meant a belt to add weight and he had 45s hanging from the belt. That shit would be funny.


Wearing one for support isn't that funny tho bro

I saw a dude one time who brought in those special ankle straps that allow you to hang upside down from a bar. So he slaps those bad boys on, grabs some 20s, jumps up on the pull up bar, goes inverted and proceeds to do, I shit you not, hanging tricep extensions. It was during the busy part of the day too. So much cringe.

@The1 curls in a belt I believe. If it's good enough for him...

When you're 200+ lbs lean with 19" arms I think you can wear a belt whenever you want and noone will say shit lol.

And the fact that he's using fingerless gloves, circa Madonna 1983. And appears to have made some sort of weird cheeseburger shaped thing from the oddly stacked plates. -3X

When you do back and already pack on that belt on you waist. Sometimes you just dont want to take it off.


@jaydiddy85.. Try telling Ronnie Coleman that does he even lift.
He wears belt everytime, gym house car..

First thing I faced in the gym today when trying to do pullups - some fucker doing three sets of triple drop sets on cable flyes with 20s rest between each drop and 60s rest between each set.

Do your shitty, pointless drop sets by all means, just pisses me off when they get in the way of my workout.

OKAY, this I have never seen ever.

I'm waiting for a bench press at carelton uni gym, and this kid is doing split squats, using the bench press equipment... what?

He unracks 115lbs from the bench, walks back from the bench, tries to clean & press the weight behind the neck to get the bar to rest on his shoulders to finally start the split squats.

-not to mention the entire clean and press effort was definietly a 1RM type of thing.. so much struggle.

Upon completing split squats he almost kills himself behind the neck pressing the weight juuuust over his head..

The next set he goes for 135lbs! I'm thinking this guy is fucking retarded and wasting everyone's time whosoever is waiting for a bench press.

He can't even clean the 135 up to his shoulders, not even half way. In complete and utter defeat he racks the bar back on the bench and then drops down to 115 wiith a spotter....

so much anger
