I'm sure you've all witnessed this one, THE BENCH PRESS POSSE, you know the ones, late teens early twenties they all come in together usually about half a dozen of em and hog the bench for anything up to 2 hours whilst continuing to load the bar with way more weight than they can handle then continue taking it in turns to press out anything up to 4 reps whilst the spotter behind is put through a pretty intense upright row session and then you can hear em saying how much extra weight they've moved this week!! Lol :lol:

Spot on Ash, every Monday throughout the UK
Never quit. If you stumble get back up. What happened yesterday NO longer matters. Today's another day so get back on track and move closer to your goals. YOU can do it

Thought I had seen most things in the gym, but today was a new experience. Guy doing leg press whilst carrying out a very loud conversation on his phone.

I suppose it could be my bad, not being able to multi task when I'm training, but really !!!

This one will cheer you up guys, got a lad having himself filmed (camera phone obviously) on the shrug machines 15kg a side and terrible technique, normally I’d offer advice but I stopped that a long time ago now it’s only if people ask me for help I’m more than happy to help ,,,now excuse me lads while I do my first working set on bench press

Haha nice one Kompany!
What is it with all this narcissistic video / photographing yourself ? We occasionally do it as a way of getting technical feed back and to actually see where you may be going wrong during the lift and it certainly isn't then pinged out over social media! But filming shrugs?........
