At my old gym this Asian guy would do one legged squats while balanced on top of a kettle bell. I thought it was pretty bad ass. Phone Post 3.0

8th Pic down is a Floor Press. Only thing wrong is the pins are set to high up with that weight and how weak he looks he's probably just aiming for the top half lockout strength.

Wow - that guy doing the hang clean who collapses backwards looks like he could have died. His head hit the back wall HARD when he fell. Is there a video of this?

To be fair, there's nothing wrong with this...depending on what he's doing.

This is why I gave up on commercial gyms and the insane white folks that are drawn to them a long time ago.

Doesn't cost much to get a reasonable setup at home.

DaddyRich - Doing the splits on an assisted pull up machine has to be tough

I saw a lady at my gym last night - she was squatting on the assist platform and pushing it down with her legs as she held onto the bars up top. Like a squat, 4 feet off the ground. Hilarious. 

Plus she was wearing huge blue blockers indoors. And she had a wig on.

I read a story from Arnold about how, in the 1970s, he and Franco Columbu would make up new kinds of exercises to try to hit muscle groups not covered by traditional exercises. So, they would do something new and then the next week notice that everyone in the gym was now doing it. They decided to have some fun and start doing ridiculous and pointless exercises but be very animated while doing them. Sure enough, they'd come in the next week and see a half dozen guys doing the same ridiculous and pointless exercises with even greater vigor.
