It's not that great. Sure, it's always good to have comradery, but a gymbro usually turns into a distraction. Ever since my gymbro quit going to the gym, my lifts have increased.

Gymbros: the hidden gain goblins
>>
>>35726855
Gymbros are great if they're serious. That is to say, they go to the gym to lift with you, not to socialise and hang out with you. Most gymbros are gains goblins, from my experience and observations.
>>
>>35726868

This.

Most of them rarely have the discipline to stick through it, and a lot of them just never know what they're doing and go by what someone else says instead of empirical evidence.

I had to distance myself from them due to the amount of bullshit and broscience they like to spew.

If he was using normal steel plates he'd have been fine. Those retarded faggy colored rubber plates don't move as well. I know they have steel in the middle but if you've ever tried them you know it's true.

Not just gym bros but all the people I see at the gym in the morning have little chats as they pass each other and this one bitch who constantly hogs machines sitting there on her phone well today she was on the preacher curl machine and she sat there and talked to another woman for at least half an hour without her even doing one set it could have been more because I left before they finished talking.

It has nothing to do with the bench or the plates or anything, the dude is just a retard.

>>35729795

Yes, just like dips also activate the chest.
You can't do a bench press without using the chest.

>>35729795
Probably the lower pecs. Its like a decline if you think about it
>>
>>35729795
at that point, it's basically decline bench press
That's why people arch their back so much, to shift the weight to the lower pecs because they are stronger
>>
>>35729651
this is not a powerlifter you retard. there is rule that butt must be on bench so dont speak if you dont know shit
>>
>>35729822
>>35729831
>>35729855
>>35729856
I'd also say it activates the lats/teres major too, just like dips do, since the movement turns more into regular adduction than horizontal adduction.

But it definitely uses the pectoralis major. Your pecs actually fire to adduct your shoulder in pullups/pulldowns.

Wednesday I was doing bench. My gym has three power racks and a Smith Jones machine. At the three power racks stations there were dudes with their gym bros doing bench. I head over to the Smith Jones and do bench alone.

It's not design, it's the guy's fault. He moved the bar upwards over his neck before having it pressed high enough. Same as when rip says don't go to rerack until arms are locked

>>35731100
No, it makes it impossible. All it has to do is extend further. It's a shit design.

If at any time a person is blaming somebody using it wrong as a design error that is how you know the design isn't that great, especially if that person only made a slight mistake while attempting to lift very heavy weights.

They are saying "this thing that is made to save you if you fucked up didn't work, but only because you fucked up wrong, so when you fuck up make sure you fuck up exactly right or your fucked." which is obviously retarded.

you obviously found the wrong gymbro. i can work out fine solo, but when im with a gymbro this cunt will not stop adding plates even if he has to assist the lift until i make every single rep. when were done i feel like im floating on a cloud for at least an hour, and cant stomach anything. although i go to failure on every single rep i just simply cant match it without him

All you nerds need to do is lift with someone you see often, so it's not a social thing, you go there to put in work and exercise and push each other. We dick around constantly, we probably look gay as fuck but you best believe taht 30 seconds before one of us is about to lift the other is ready and dead serious. It's about making safe progress at a pace you can't do alone and also turning it into an enjoyable experience

This shit sucks. I went into the gym with him, hammered away at weights for the first time in my life and had a genuine blast, even working in some treadmill and heavy bag cardio, and now he just whines about being tired and sore all the time, and spends more money on useless shit and less on food.

>mfw he keeps buggig me to buy Rocket League, some shitty car based soccer game that's apparently competitive
>mfw I have League of Legends for my competitive gaming and would rather be lifting 3 days a week

Fucking hell, he's a great friend but he whines about being sore and only goes to the gym once every two weeks at most. Has the balls to boast about how much he can lift (lifted longer than I do, but only gets 2-3kgs above me in dumbells and we're even in bench) to anybody that will listen, but cries about being sore or tired every time I mention we should go to the gym.

So now I'm just buying my own membership and going to hit it 3/4 days a week. If I ignore his bullshit I should be able to make it, brehs.

Tfw I had a gymbro, but he supposedly has elbow pains from "lifting too much" (never even hit 1 pl8 on bench) and used it as an excuse to never lift since March.

Weird part is he claimed to have knee pains as well, but he would squat for over 30 minutes 4 times a week and drink at least half a gallon of milk a day.

I miss having a gymbro though. When I went with him, I had a lot of fun cracking jokes inbetween sets and being able to talk to him about shit. Now I just run alone and do bodyweight exercises at home.

Serious question: how the fuck am I supposed to do a bench/squat weight heavy enough to do 6-8 reps without a gymbro?
Am I consigned to the smith machines and dumbell press instead of benching and squattin?
>>
>>35739387
He didn't try to rack it, he just lost it over his head. Also, those racks are fine, they're used in competitions all the time where that guy is from
>>
>>35740198
well usually you do squats in a rack with safeties, if you dont have that you just have to know if you'll get the next rep or not

if youre still stuck in the hole you can always dump the weight behind you, or when benching do the roll of shame

or...you know... just ask someone to spot you when benching
