Any shitty personal trainer stories?
>be me, finally get the guts to start lifting
>gym gives me a free 1 hour with personal trainer to make an exercise plan
>trainer asks what I want to do
>I say I want to learn the correct form of squats, deads and barbell rows etc
>Says yep, but has already written me a plan and we'll just go through that first
>Crunches, leg lifts with swiss ball, "Bulgarian" squats using a bench press bench for my feet etc
>WORST OF ALL - PUSH UPS ON THE SMITH MACHINE BAR
>Hour up and hasn't taught me what I asked for
>"Times up sorry."

After that, I finished my workout (just accessory stuff; farmers walks, calves, abs) and went to the grocery store next door to the gym to pick up some chickens and rice
>Still got dat pump and confidence like a fucking aura
As I'm picking up a shopping basket I get wolf whistled at by one of the chicks at the cashier, getting mire'd hard
