Problems:

1) Nowhere near enough weight, I don't care who you are.
2) Wrong handle. He's never going to get full ROM with healthy external rotation unless he has a handle in each hand, each connected to it's own weight stack.

True, but there's also nothing wrong with cable rows as long as they are done like I suggested.

Nope, but I guess double weight stacks are quite rare.

I didn't know... There is one at the college gym. Of course another good and workable solution is to use the lat pulldown ropes on a single weight stack.

The guy is pretty old. Maybe he has shoulder problems?
Definitely needs a trainer to get more ROM.
As you age, the relationship between ROM and pain is problem. Ask me how I know :lol:
I will post a video soon of what I discovered concerning my shoulder pain I've been bellyaching about for the last couple of years :shock:

Actually I think he is lollygagging - how effortlessly he is pulling. How much is that weight? 5 lbs maybe, less than a milk jug.
I don't want to mock older people - especially as I get older myself, but he should get some sound help.

Mike: I know the relation between ROM and pain, but you often can get past that point by constantly working on the culprits - as you may know yourself.
Even if you do sth., don't expect it to disappear over night, as it has been built up over time as well. I guess consistency is key here.

Lollygagging probably but at least he's not on the couch! Yeah he needs help, but I think you have to be pretty **** to film old people at the gym and call them names. So glad I work out at home 95% of the time. Either help or focus on your own workout. When I do go to the gym I'm pretty oblivious to what others are doing if it doesn't directly impact me.

I think at that age if being at the gym sucks that bad (he doesn't look too interested), focus on a physical activity you really enjoy even if its extreme gardening. Life is too short. My godmother hand dances 2-3 times a week and she is in pretty good shape for her age (almost 70) and it makes her smile.

Here is the ultimate fail of all time. This guy is a jackass plain and simple and deserves a slap in the face. And I mean a full bodyweight, cupped hand power-slap in the ear. Actually one on each side of his head simultaneously. If he can be *convinced* to put the poor baby down first that is. I can't even begin to express how pissed off that picture makes me. :grrr!: :grrr!: :grrr!: :grrr!:

But dude, he's being hardcore! No excuses! Working out even when he's supposed to be taking care of his kid = ELITEE!

Plus, I'm sure there's something highly functional about forward displacement of your center of gravity while doing overhead squats.

The only thing worse than that ^ is the pregnant women crossfit fad. Lots of kipping and bouncing--literally bouncing off their stomachs on pushups, burpees etc. Not only highly irresponsible and possible unhealthy (definitely, in the child's case), but just completely retarded, just to get attention.

It's not even that. It's the fact that one bad rep and he could KILL his baby. Hence the slap.

Which genius started that fad? :facepalm: Aside from extremely light exercise like walking, pregnant women should not so much as do a situp, let alone crossfit, once they get past the first trimester.

Yeah, no dropping the bar in front for that guy.

It's all about appearing tougher/more dedicated/more hardcore than the next weekend warrior... by doing stupider things, bragging about training through ruptured achilles tendons, torn rotator cuffs, and so forth.

funny you mentioned that. a discussion came up the other day at a gym about whether or not its feasible to do 100 rebounding box jumps continuously for time. Apparently it was an issue before in CF (ppl were blowing up achilles everywhere) and it was taken out, but now there were thoughts of re-introducing it into programming. I'm over here in the corner just thinking .... :no:

Yep, there was an article somewhere about that, I forget which reasonable-crossfit (yes, there is such a thing!) blog... there's a reason even olympic athletes don't do high volume box jumps. There's nothing inherently wrong with high rep plyos, after all we've had hundred to thousand burpee challenges before and no one ever blew out a tendon--but rebounding box jumps for time isn't quite so healthy as a normal squat jump or burpee, or sprinting, or something like that.
Then, of course, there's the untrained individual/full of shit trainer complication that crossfit so often seems to bring to the table, and you get your injuries from high rep box jumps. Which is really the stupidest thing ever to cause injuries, sheesh.

Poor baby. I'm really scratching my head at that one.

Yeah, wouldn't recommend a lot of hi rep jumps while pregnant. There's a reason pregos are running to the bathroom every 5 minutes. Baby laying on bladder+ high impact jumping = bad scene. Some of them will be very very unhappy. I've not been to crossfit, so I sincerely hope that's not what is happening in their prenatal classes.

Mcem, Cheese and I were just discussing this in Mcem's training log. He's holding the bar way too low on his back, and to my mind his hands are spaced too far apart. His stance is good and wide though, which is desirable, and he is strong. I think he just tackled a weight that he was not yet ready for and compromised his form too much to make the lift.

A word about gym fails in general: I generally don't like mocking people for what they do in the gym.
I've looked like an idiot on both ends of the spectrum. When I started out, I was lifting weight so light it was comical. I remember doing deadlifts with 40 pounds. I never did any idiotic exercises, but I did do some fluffy stuff that would now by my standards be a gym fail.

And, as I've gotten stronger, I've done plenty of stupid and potentially dangerous stuff. I've fallen out of handstands, done heavy benching with no spotter, fell out of a squat with 275, almost passed out deadlifting, etc. I've tried stuff that would look ridiculous in a public gym- have you ever done crab walking? Its a great warmup. A couple of weeks ago, I ripped my pants squatting and finished my workout with one buttcheeks worth of fabric hanging off

If you haven't looked like an idiot in the gym, you're not going enough

Very good point of course.

Years ago I tried supersetting bench press and clap pushups, because I'd heard it was a good idea. So I did a really quick 10 clapping pushups, and then immedtiately tried to bench press. I can't remember exactly how much it was, but I GUARANTEE you it was notably less than 135. I could not even budge it.

And just this past summer/fall, I was doing heavy shrugs and when I finished, I unloaded one side of the bar before the other while it was still knee height on the pins... Catapult!

I guess part of the reason I don't mind so much with laughing at some for the things people do in the gym is the very same reason you do mind it, namely that I've been there and done that. To me it's all in good fun. When it happens, I just laugh at myself and keep training. If someone else is laughing at me, I laugh with them. And when the laughing subsides I lift some more.

But for real, that's truth. Speaking personally, I'm one to laugh at my mistakes ( I recently mis-stepped on a clean + jerk and nearly dropped weight on myself. Scary moment...). I am one to be concerned for the health and safety of others in the performance of exercise, but if someone does some straight up funny/foolish thing, I have no problems letting out a chuckle. Starting with light weights or doing unconventional exercise doesn't count in those categories in my books.

Hahaha that video was money.
Josh, you probably could (though maybe not at that speed)... the difference between looking cool and stupid with something like that, is usually some objective knowledge your own ability level. Which that poor guy didn't have :lol:

Maybe if it was on one of the bottom speeds haha. But I've certainly had treadmill fails just as bad as that. Every time I'm by one at someone's house I try stupid stuff on them.

I think the worst fail I had was my freshmen year at ORU; I tried to do clapping pull-ups on a power tower upstairs, clipped the handles on the way down and fell straight on my butt in front of everyone. It happens.
