i was doing one armed db presses today.
ended with 100x3, as i was struggling with my second rep this huge (pretty fat) dude more or less stood over the top of me and glared. he was literally straddling my right foot and was acting like he was going to "help", but basically just mean mugged me from two feet away from my face. it made me really, really uncomfortable. not because he was that close, but it really felt like he was trying to intimidate me.
the third rep was really, really slow, and about halfway through it the guy reaches out as if he's going to help me. i yelled "DONT TOUCH IT" and he stepped back with a really pissed off look.
i finished the rep and set the db on my knee and asked the guy (very politely) what he honestly thought he was going to accomplish while standing in front of me, and he told me "you needed help, man, be a ****in jerk about it" and i freaked on him.
i said "can you lateral raise a 100lb dumbbell? what happens if i start losing the weight to the back, are you going to run around and grab it before my ****ing shoulder pops? spot somebody the right way dude, thats all i'm asking"
this ****er had the balls to say, "maybe you shouldn't be lifting weights this heavy, dick" and walked away. if i could throw a 100lb db i would've, i've never had anything but pleasant words with anybody at the gym before and this was just ridiculous.
