Um…Don’t Do This

Seriously, don’t do that.  Did you ever see someone really, really doing it wrong?

  1. Seems like almost daily. Today I saw a guy doing some sort of standing ab move (think the motion of a standing good morning except pressing against weight” by placing his chest on the support of a dip machine and leaning forward. SMH

  2. I haven’t seen anything like that pic, but almost daily I see people doing really REALLY wrong stuff on the rowers. I guess they figure there’s nothing to it, but you can actually really damage your back and neck doing it wrong – as well as the guy I saw once who whacked himself in the head with the handle!

    I’m sooooo tempted to say something, but I don’t. It’s not my place. I hold my tongue and try to remember that they’ve almost all certainly been given lessons by the trainers, who are excellent. And if they’re not paying attention STILL, there’s very little I can do about it anyway.

    Except try not to laugh too hard at that whole head-whack thing 😉

  3. I have that same dilemma – it’s not my place to say anything. That said…I say things sometimes if I feel really confident that I know the correct way to do an exercise and the person is WAAAAY off. Unless it’s one of those show-off guys who doesn’t know what he’s doing. Then I stand next to him and lift heavier than he can 😉
