    1. High bar is okay. Changes the angle of the weight, which might help others squat better if they have bad knees etc.
    2. Form is form, regardless of if your max is 5 pounds, 50 pounds, or 500 pounds. I've had bros doing heavy weight critique my form before and then start squatting with tiny ROMs. That said he sounds like a tard who doesn't know what he's talking about.
    3. "fall over to the side" lol wtf?

    High bar is fine, bar on your neck is not high bar. I would think high bar would be worse on your knees since it's more of a knee hinge movement and less of a hip hinge?

    I trolled him afterwards and asked him if he could write a routine from me because of how aesthetic he was. Routine was

    Monday
    Chest
    Tuesday
    legs and arms
    Thursday
    shoulders (he recommended the pec deck for shoulder development and barbell flies.....)
    Friday
    Back

    He also told me I really shouldn't be training back and shoulders on the same day because apparently thats dangerous too? Training muscle groups once a week for maximum growth.

    That's actually very similar to the routine I follow.

    Monday - Bench
    Tuesday - Deadlifts
    Thursday - Bench variations (lockout and/or higher rep stuff), also stuff like pecdec, flies, hammer strength machines
    Friday - Squats

    ugh stupid retarded new forum


    High bar changes the weight to be more in line with your heel, so your knee has to work harder vertically. Low bar moves the weight further back so your knee experiences an "outward" tension when bent. For some people one or the other is extremely painful. Hard to explain without a force diagram describing the mechanics, but that's the gist of it.

    I had a fuji-like experience at the gym today. 5'10~ 130-140lb dude was doing T-bar rows on little weight. The dude finished his set and pulled up his shirt and started mirin himself, clearly thinking he was cut like Brad Pitt from Fight Club. And then he flexed and had the "fuck yeah I'm buff" head nod. In the middle of the gym! It was very lols and wtf.

    Just had the episode of the Simpsons where Homer tries to get fat so he can work from home on TV, ended up at 315lbs. If I was that fat I'd need 3500 calories a day to maintain my weight, to be the fattest man ever I'd need 11500 a day (to maintain at 1400lbs).

    fuji needs to find a new gym.

    ive been extremely angry come gym time, little things piss me off but i dont say anything, bigger things and i blow the fuck up.

    two days ago this bigger guy was doing power cleans. once he was done, he took weights off only 1 side of the bar, left the other side. i yelled at him, dont think he heard me. called him a "cock sucker".

    a few weeks ago, this same dude's "training partner" was squatting in one of the 2 racks. i asked him how many sets, he said 1 more. took a good 5minutes to get to that set, did it, i asked him if he was done, he said "ughh im going to try it again, need to switch the pins to the other side" i just flipped a shit and said "Youve got to be fucking kidding me man. Weights not coming up" He just shrugged his shoulders.
    He avoids me now.

    Fuck them both.

    having your own gym+++++++

    youd be amazed at how much nicer it is to train without douchebags everywhere. even if you dont have to deal with them, even watching them got me frustrated as all hell.

    edit: who are you, rambo?
