So doing the one-arm dumbbell rows, I'd lift up and pause for 1 second. On the 2nd rep I'd lift up and pause for two seconds, on the third pause for three seconds and so on. It was way difficult, I was sweating bad and my heart rate was up. I love when that happens.
Meanwhile, the kids in my gym were busy doing iPhone curls. I swear, if they lifted weight as much as they BS'd and texted people they'd be huge!
I hate that, and it's not just limited to kids. There's a lady who usually takes the treadmill either beside me or the next one to my left. She sets it to 3.0 and talks loud enough that I can hear her over my iPod turned 3/4 of the way up. Another guy does the same thing, except he does short calls and a few texts in between. I don't know if he's doing office work or what. If that's the case, leave the office at the office.
