"Do these squats make my butt look big"
In commercial gyms I don't see very many women in general squatting correctly. They are either squatting with baby weights or doing ugly 3/4 reps. And then they all follow it up with a million sets of leg raises to further exascerbate their anterior pelvic tilt and gluteal amnesia.
Ah, but another rant for another day.
I workout out a Philadelphia Sports Club near my home, I constantly see people with horrible form. the older people erk me the most, the mid-50's, early 60's guy who thinks rocking his entire body and breaking his wrist is doing anything for his biceps. I also tend not to be impressed by the guys who move weights a fraction of the full range of a good form rep. I typically keep to myself though, unless I think someone will be receptive to the criticism. Which I myself would be if there was anyone there who could give it.
are we talking about form or rep range?
i don't go up to ppl i don't know and just butt in ever, it's none of my business but i'd be more likely to fix someones form than rep range
look at branch warren, jason huh, or max charles, they all use poor range of motion by most standards, however constant tension is a very effective way to train

I was referring to both. I know some people just cant go through full ranges of motion, I myself have had to work a lot on my left shoulder after suffering a grade III separation a few years back. that said IMO you can tell the people who just dont know they are doing something wrong.
Personaly I woul be happy if someone would come up to me and be like "hey I noticed that you could improve you form by doing this and that...."
( I strainded my back before from bad squat form) now my form is great
Unsilicited advice makes you look bad, and douchey. So, i never do it.

Yeah how many of you noticed people wearing lifting belts squatting about ~100 with narrows stand / partial reps rounding back like crazy?
I tried helping people like this now I don’t give a f… unless someone ask me or I know that person
I used to if I thought the person was doing them selves terrible harm, but that upsets them greatly. Now I just watch in terror.
I know we're already 24 days into the new year, but shouldn't most people trying to stick to their resolutions at least feign some interest in doing things better. Granted 75% of them will drop out in another 2 weeks but still.
Actually a really good idea ^^^Originally Posted by OnionKnight
"hey dip**** youre doing the lift wrong" lol I wonder if anybody used this line.
The guys that try to give me tips at the gym are always the ones who have the worst form I've ever seen.
They're curls look like a back workout.
I posed this question on my facebook performance page...but I want to pose it here too.
Which is more annoying:
Crossfitters in commercial gym who take up nearly ever squat rack and barbell for 30 minutes and only spend about 45 seconds using each.
Psuedo-Jersian shore dudes wearing shirts cut from the armpit to the hip curling in the squat rack???
I like seeing the wanna be bad ass jersey shore guys tho....makes me laugh
I go back and forth on this. When I see someone using awful form to the point that injury could easily occur or they're teenagers, I step in to offer assistance, but not technique advice. If it's someone doing half reps thinking they own the gym, I just laugh to myself.
