    What are some most common mistakes people do, and they are not aware of? I mean like these guys . I know, this is extreme, but almost every person in the gym does something silly, even though it doesnt look like that. What are the most common mistakes everyone does? Thanks

    The most common mistake is allowing these morons to buy memberships.

    1) I have wanted to try using the cable machine to fly jump like that since I saw it on YouTube. My inner child begs me to do it. It looks so fun.

    2) I flex the the mirrors more then I should. I used to hate that. Now I catch myself doing it. I'm ashamed.

    3) I'd say most common mistake is terrible squat and dead lift form. Followed by 6inch from chest benches

    Everyone "hanging out" - get the fuck back to work

    Squatting with a tampon on the bar

    Quarter squats then immediate IG post of how they BURIED 315 - yea ok


    People trying to deadlift that shouldn't be

    Trainers that weigh 130lbs yet they're teaching a 60yr old woman how to deadlift sumo

    behind the neck pulldowns with the ever strain face as they pull forward as far as possible

    Any crossfitter

    assisted dips

    Forced reps from the 1st rep of the 1st set

    There seems to be an epidemic of this in gyms across the land and I fucking hate it.

    I don't know if its like this in the US but it fucking is in the UK !!

    Forced reps are supposed to be a technique/tool in used order to push a very intense set in good form to failure unassisted, to then beyond failure assisted.

    Yet everyone and his aunt, with encouragement by so called PTs are loading up far more weight than they can handle themselves just for the ego gratification and then have 2 or 3 of their gymbro buddies doing most of the lifting for them from rep 1.

    Why don't these egolifting morons just reduce the weight and get as many reps as they can all on their own in good form without someone pushing on their elbows or pulling on the bar throughout the set ?????!!

    They don't even train with that much intensity or effort, they just want a lot of plates on the bar and the imagined attention.

    Fucking morons !!!!

    Talking to me. Just leave me alone or say something short, not engage me in a convo. I take a break between sets but not 5-10 mins to talk to some bro. I wear headphones to discourage it but that doesn't always work.

    Trying to b a boss overnight.

    With no consistency, no work ethic, no understanding of proper form, lifting far more weigh than the muscle that they r training atm will allow.

    It takes years of experience. The sooner u check urself at the door, the more progress can b made.

    I gotta admit, I'm a little jealous of the girls arch on her bench press... I'm pretty sure I could do a near 500lb comp press with an arch like that.
