NormalGuy93 saidI hate the guys that intentionally slam their weights and like then get up quickly and act so tough when walking away. It's easy to tell intentional vs unintentional. Or the ones who think they are so much cooler because they can lift more when really all they have done is spend more time at the gym....but to answer your question usually 2 or 3 a day.
Intentional weight dropping is not douchy... Have you ever done an Olympic lift?
I do Olympic lifts probably way more than you and I DON'T drop weights. Unless there's a wooden platform there that is meant for that, you will break the weights. Then we all get to hate you until they get around (a year later) to replace the ones you broke until you do it again the next year.
That's what I mean. This guy is saying it is always a douche move to drop weights, and there are quite a few that are not.
My gym has six Olympic platforms for lifting with rubber weights. How is that wrong to drop? I mean if you're dropping a full stack on a cable machine or a bar with metal plates then yeah, but always is not accurate...
And I didn't realize we were having a 'who Olympic lifts more' competition.
