Anyone have any funny gym stories? I was at the gym yesterday and this guy who appeared to be a newbie was attempting to do some hyperextensions while holding a 45 pound plate. Only his back was not nearly strong enough to do them while holding the weight. So his lower back would raise first before his shoulders and head, so it looked like he was doing "The Worm". It was funny as hell looking. I tried to get a pic of it with my camera phone but he dropped the weight before I could snap the pic. I thought it was going to be a matter of seconds before he injured his back. It looked painfull.
