Is it just me or do you think many lie about the weigths they lift in the gym?
I read posts constantly about people repping out 300+ lbs on inlcine bench, military pressing 300 lbs, etc. I just find this hard to believe, but maybe I just lift at gyms where everybody is weak.
For instance, I rarely see anyone actually militray press more than 225. I rarely see people bench 300+ or even better yet incline 300+.
What I do see is guys loading up bars only to have someone move half of the weight for them. I see guys "curling" but it looks more like a swing set or some guy having a seizure. I see people do only 1/3 of a movement and claim it is to compeletion.
Now, I know people do lift this much but it just seems like everybody claims they can do it. However, I fail to see too many guys in the gym who have the build or the ability to do it.
Like i said, maybe its just me.
p.s.- I do not care, it just seems to be an odd thing to lie about.
