You see, there were lots of people working out at that time (about 10 a.m.), and EVERYTHING was bad. I was the only one doing a compound lift, other than the bench press, and not a single person was using a full range of motion (ROM). As I rested between seats of deads, lunges and GHR's, I ass-hat watched (a favorite pastime of mine). Every guy benched (when the Smith machine was being used, some even used a real bench!), every guy totally blasted his biceps, there were alot of shrugs, some half-ROM overhead presses....the rare behind-the-back-barbell-wrist-curl (BTBBWC) even made an appearance! Of course, it was on the Smith machine. Actually, the Smith machine got the most use! I saw it get used for "squats", bench press, BTBBWC, overhead presses, upright rows and, of course, biceps curls.

This hour long workout I had today provided me with several glimpses into what passes as "working out" nowadays, and it seems that as long as your'e bench pressing, your'e doing a helluva job!
