Week #2 chest day is done. It was a good workout, but to be fair I did an extra 2 sets of flat bench after I was done the entire "day". Why, you might ask? Because this guy and his kid were being total morons - jumping in on machines whenever they felt like it, cutting people off and working out far too close to the dumbell shelves, you name it.
This is the joy of working out at a military installation. I'm pretty sure that the guy was Canadian Forces, or ex-CF, but he was also fairly dense for his age and appearance. For instance, he was totally wasting his time with standing dumbell tricep extensions by not extending his arms fully (and thus reaching his PCP for his tris). I nicely pointed out after one of his sets that he was pretty much getting half the workout that he could get otherwise and then explained how. He then told me that he thought he was extending all the way already. Sorry, but if you can't feel what your arms are doing and if your elbows are bent, you're either not working right physically / neurologically or you're just dense. I went with the second option.
Then, he was off, just pushing his way onto different machines and stations and generally making a nuisance of himself. I could see when I met the eyes of others he was offending that he was indeed having the same effect on others.
It's one of those sticky situations where you're not sure if it's worth your time to mention it to him, or others, as it might cause you more grief than the initial issue. As it was, he messed up my chest / tris day badly and I had to waste a good deal of time in the gym working around him and his kid.
Hopefully he's not there Wednesday.
