This is a quick list about the crap thing during practice especially in the private fitness centre or gymnasium. I suppose, I would lists many more stories concerning this matter but in this post I will focus the 7 regular habit of trainees that you will face in the fitness centres.
The story is not intended to pointing out some people out there. However, the most important thing when you step foot into the fitness centre is to exercise effectively, comfortably and enjoy. Therefore, kindly " informed" and get ready about the following things before joining a gym or fitness centre.
1) Guys show-off
I do believe that each fitness centers elsewhere in the world has an idiot guy. These guys thought that they’re the king of weight training and trying to be the hero and show-off about their broad shoulder in spite of having weak core strength.
2) Over Hypertrophy
I would get sick to see a person who bulk up or over exploited his upper body muscles like the ultimate warrior while having pin-sized legs like a puppy dog.
3) Free Training Tips
Two situations, whether he will ask you for a training tips or he will voluntarily to become your consultant like an expert!
4) One pack or Six Packs
Good thing is at least the one-pack guys who want to get a six-packs asking you strategy and tips about abs workouts. But then you cannot bear those guys anymore, they start to report to you each day the daily improvement of the abs. After that, they will get you with the topic of supplement food and etc. etc..
Everyone knows "breathing is crucial" during lifting weights or running at treadmills. But when a smell guy come to practice around you, then you better go home. Do you ever thought it ruins the quality of workouts? Sorry but to be honest you cannot breathe properly.
6) Warm up
Unless he or she is a true athlete, you'll not see people in the fitness centres warming ups properly. One story in the past, one guy sees me doing half squat 180kg, he walks right to the squat cage and attempted the same weight with terrible technique, and without warm up. Of course he failed at all of his attempts.
7) "I've already 6 months doing weights, but no improvement".
Well, what you have done in six months? Non-functional workouts, non-systematic planning, spending the whole time talking about 6 packs, too much time on dumbbells, everything nonsense!
