Attacked as another gym user thought he was too loud - thought he was virtually Ninja like in the amount of disturbance whilst deadlift!
Roid rage, bad day, dog died, personal animosity, cheating spouse, hates teenagers, hungover... who can say, but to stop him mid lift by actually pushing down on the bar with his foot was stupid and dangerous. He's lucky the kid didn't suffer a back injury. Looking at the video again it seems these two have had words before.Quite possibly - either way it's a extreme reaction to kick the bar as his lifting
Supposedly this wasn't an employee but another gym user?I was once told that I couldn't dead lift at a Gold's Gym in Seattle because it intimidated other people. It was infuriating, but nothing like this.
The gym employee/owner will be lucky if he isn't charged with Assault. He could have really hurt that kid.
A commercial bearing bar should be able to handle 300 odd lbs onto mats - looking at the gyms instagram account (it's getting so much online abuse) they have images of people deadlift so does make me think there's something else occuringThe push certainly is assault? Matbe that was a bearing bar?
Just makes me glad for home gyms - lift what,how and where you want. Having said that my upstairs neighbour complains when I drop heavy cleans!At the YMCA I go too I have overheard many people mention “meat heads” or “idiots “ dropping weights and making “too much” noise.
They have platforms and kilo bumpers. It’s an athletic training facility. Go to Globogym or a Chrome and Fen Spa Club and walk on a treadmill and your do side laterals. Why do I see so many side laterals with cables?
Most people hate to see any meaningful work done. Crabs in a bucket trying to pull everyone down to their level. I love to see someone kicking a#@ in the gym. It’s the bar lift, which there is a lot of, that makes me want to go ask someone to stop.
