I see it every day. I look to my left and guy is using his entire body to swing 50 lb Dumbbells up and down. He calls them ‘curls.’ I don’t know WTF to call them- but certainly not curls. I then look over to my right to see a guy with 315 lbs on the bar, performing what looks like to me a full-body dry-heave. He calls them squats.
I’m not here to pick on anyone or put anyone down. I want to point out a few things, and hopefully, she’d some light on why it’s better to train smarter than with your ego.
