Fuck these know-it-all PTs

I guess a gym stories thread

I will only take what a PT says seriously when:
1) they are bigger than me
2) they are stronger than me
3) the people they train are both 1 & 2
4) pigs fucking fly
>>
>>35625255
are you really supposed to look up when squatting tho ?
>>
>>35625448

No. Keep your spine neutral and head aligned.

High bar you'll look straight ahead, low bar your eyeline might dip slightly, but you should never look to the ceiling.
>>
>>35625448
Low bar squat fuckin no.

Also.

I remember when I was doing (proper) Good Mornings and some guy tried to "fix" my form to a deadlift
>>
>>35625448
Never. Some people say "look up" as a cue for people learning high bar squat, but it's moreso because people used to low bar are used to looking down, or people with shit posture tend to crane their neck.

You should look straight ahead when you squat. Low bar may require to tilt down a bit for comfort.
>>
>>35625448
I used to tell new squatters to look up for balance reasons. When they look straight, they tend to bend their back or start tipping forward.

thats a good album breh

>>35626736
What? How could he possibly mistake a good morning for a dedlift? Having the bar on your shoulders alone should be a decent hint you're not deadlifting

I did a few sessions with a PT (a former competitive power lifter) who told me the exact opposite - that you should actually look slightly down when you squat.

At my gym, half of the racks face a mirror, and he would actually get me not use those, just so that I wouldn't be tempted to look straight ahead at myself in the mirror.

>Tfw my personal trainer was a bro and actually taught me good form.
>Tfw my personal trainer only trains people because he enjoys seeing people progress and is sick of people getting wrong information.
>Tfw my personal trainer still gave me advice and worked out with me even though I didn't have any sessions with him.
>Tfw I stopped paying for a personal trainer weeks ago but he still insists he sees me through until I hit my goal even if I don't have the money to hire him anymore.
I was sceptical about using a pt at the beginning but it seems to be one of my better choices in life. I've made a legit gym bro now who I hang out with on weekends and pick up chicks with.
Also if I didn't enjoy vagina so much I would probably say I'm gay for him but I know that's not the case. I'm also secure enough with my sexuality to go see him strip when he had shows and what not, easiest way to get pussy ever.

Was new to gym so I just wanted to humor him. Won't happen again.
