Honestly, I'd feel kinda bad for him if he wasn't so obnoxious in that "grunting, posing in the mirror, etc" sort of way.
I know the type... but then again, the kid's 17, so its hardly surprising that his view of a great physique would be huge bis & tris + maybe dem dere abs.
I think a lot of lifters sort of start out that way, only looking for those "show" muscles and ignoring the basic stuff... then as they progress and put in more years at the gym they revert back to the basic heavy compounds b/c that's what really fun about lifting.
Almost embarrassed to say this, but turn the clock back 6 years and I was that curl guy at the gym - you know the skinny-legged dude with the 5-way split program straight off Muscle & Fitness magazine.
