…the last guy left 405lbs on the bar and nobody complains.
…fights break out over the bar with the good knurling.
…no matter how much you can lift, you get respect for showing up.
…15 minutes rest between sets isn’t uncommon (that would explain the 3 hour workouts).
…you can insult, steal and lie, but don’t you dare misload a bar for another lifter – ever!
…it’s perfectly acceptable to vomit/bleed/crap all over yourself in the middle of a workout – as long as you finish your set.
…mirrors? for what?
