Just read this really funny article from John Phung, and we just had to share it !

- Sarah & Ditte
From the article:
“ When I first started learning the back squat and actually made progress, I began to see how other people around me were wrong.
I found myself shaking my head in my own mind at those who exercise at the gym all the time, have a massive upper body but never squat!
If if they did, it’s usually on the Smith machine performing quarter, or at best, half squats.
I used to have to restrain myself from yelling offering unsolicited advice to unsuspecting strangers to squat deeper, correct their form, or use the squat rack.
I can’t tell you how annoyed I used to be when personal trainers never tell their clients to perform an honest ass-to-grass squat in the squat rack.
And don’t even get me started about those who curl in the squat rack.
Fast forward to today: I have accepted the fact that not everyone will squat properly, squat using a rack or even squat at all.
With time and experience, I have developed tolerance to gym rats and curl bros and have accepted them for who they are.
I am now at peace. “
