Should have used your microplates as throwing stars to defeat the gym staff and escape
>>
Why the fuck would you take your own plates to the gym?
>>
>>35646761
they only had 5lb plates minimum.

Can you please post your current body?

How did they think you where stealing when the smallest plates they have are 5lbs?
>>
I dont get why you guys fuckin' on OP, microplates are sick for lifts like OHP where progression can be super difficult

what the actual honest fuck is fucking wrong with you? did somebody cut your entire dick off when you were a child? fuck man, just fuck, you have a fucking problem
>>
>>35646799
Instead of being a SS faggot & doing 5 rep sets with miroplates to progress; why not do 8-12 reps & press by adding reps. 2.5lb is fine for progression. Just add more reps with the same weight (I'm not saying to do over 12 reps or anything stupid, but you should be able to go from 12 reps to 8 reps when you increase by 5lb... you dont need microplates)

You clearly have no idea how progression works.
>>
>>35646814
I would have told them they were yours because they only carry 5lbs as the smallest.

Find the receipt for them and go back and get your plates back. I want fractional plates badly and by Grabthar's Hammer am I going to let some pencil neck PT take my plates away.
>>
>>35647074
I'm pretty sure I'll get kicked out if I go there again, worst part is I gotta cancel my membership for another $100.

I don't like confrontation, I will just sign up for the further away gym and get some new plates, these ones had some scratches anyways
>>
>>35647126

Are you kidding?

It's not a confrontation. They are your plates and you can easily get them back. Who cares if they are scratched - your just making excuses.

Dummy, you should have written your name on them with a Sharpie marker before you went in then they wouldn't have stolen them from you. Find your receipt and go back and get them and make them apologize (unless you're too beta).
>>
>>35647887
what's stopping someone from doing that with the gym's plates in the first place
>>
Can't you just have them review security footage to see that you clearly brought them in?
>>
>>35647126
Oh, never mind my advice, kid, you ARE too BETA AS FUCK to be bothered. Enjoy being walked on your whole life, and never making it.

Pathetic.
>>
>>35647894
If they don't match anything else in the gym then they're pretty balsy (or stupid) to insist they're the gyms' property. I've never seen any gym that has such things or even knew they existed.
>>
>>35647899
maybe but I don't wanna ask them that.
>>35647912
they did match the color scheme of some plates.

He needs to show them the receipt as proof of ownership and make them reinstate his membership or refund his money, but apparently he's too BETA AS FUCK to nut up and do it.
>>
>>35646901
Ayy the 8 to 10 to 12 x3 then up the weight to start back at 8

I did this for progression in strength for my torn rotator cuff because it is dangerous to add weight to progress. I mean it was slower but sure as hell worked

well maybe if I bring my gym partner and he starts the conversation and I can be behind him and come up with the receipt, they might not throw me out, I'll give that a try if he's not busy tomorrow.
>>
>>35647943

Strength progression with rep increases is a meme, you are not having progressive overload and you're not breaking the homeostasis with new and increasing stress.
You will be stuck forever before increasing the weight.
>>
>>35646717
You know, you can sue on trespass to chattel
>>
>>35647975
Yeah it's also a great way to tear or rupture something by arbitrarily increasing the resistance when you're not necessarily ready for it and your muscles are already fatigued.

Train moderately, train consistently!
>>
>>35647975
That forever part took about a month, of course I didn't straight from 3x8 to 3x10 their was crap in between like 10-8-failure(usually 6 or 7) it wasn't until I could comfortably, and I use this word strongly because lifting to failure could easily lead to another dislocation, that I could push out 3x12 with an extra set to near failure that I added extra weight back at 3x8

But then again I just got into that habit from my physio so I took his word for it that that is a safe form of progression and that it has been working for over a year, sorry if it doesn't match with a strangers better plan on a Bosnian haberdashery forum
>>
>>35646844
>2016
>being this insecure
>>
>>35648117
Roughly 2-4 extra reps a week with the same weight is pretty shit progression desu, but if it works then sure, what the hell
>>
>>35647126
I'll be honest, I don't like confrontation either, but come on dude, they've clearly wronged you. Don't let them walk over you when you've done nothing wrong
>>
>>35646717
Micro plates are the biggest scam in the fitness industry. Your nervous system can't tell the difference between a 185 lb barbell and a 187 lb barbell

because we aren't all pussyfaggot children.

i just buy 2 inch washers, and glue em together.

just the same as microplates, only cheaper.

and you don't look like a faggot pretending the barbell is a penis and fondling it's dual scrotal sacks

It's called hypertrophy you fucking pleb, a muscle can only be so strong at its current size so you grow the muscle to get stronger.

Gotta get big to lift big ya cuck

why can't you be independent, faggot?

sorry you have a cokewhore for a mom. and sorry again for supporting her habits.

at least she sewed you a pouch,
>>
>>35646717
If you ordered them online it is easy - ask your bank for a statement from your payment account and find the transaction. Take a copy to the gym and demand your plates back. If they don't budge go to the police. Never let idiots push you around.

Buy and use small lengths of chain. You can buy chain in a hardware store, they will cut it for you in 1 and 2 lbs pieces. Connect the ends of each piece with a small carabiner to form a circle.
