Found this fun article on SITE GONE BAD – Read the full article here.
I saw a man at the gym. He was wearing a one-piece spandex suit. He was dead-lifting 530 lbs. He looked at me sheepishly. I had surprised him. He was wearing a lifting belt.
It’s ok, I said, It’s ok to wear a lifting belt.
I walked into another gym. I saw a man doing curls with 80 pound dumbbells. His veins were bulging from his biceps. He was looking into the mirror. He was wearing a lifting belt, too, but it was about two inches thicker around the backside than the frontside.
That’s not ok, I told him. His face turned redder. It’s ok to wear a lifting belt, but only ones that are the same width all the way around. If you wear one with a thicker backside, then you don’t know what a lifting belt is for.
He was upset. He screamed. I left him and walked down the road. I saw a landscaper bending down to pick up a fifty pound bag of dirt. He was wearing a lifting belt.
