Man At A Gym Won’t Allow Powerlifter To Deadlift

The gym is a place where you can find all kinds of people, from bodybuilders to powerlifters to those that only go there to spend an hour on the treadmill. With so many people it’s no surprise that you’ll find people with different attitudes and personalities. We’ve heard gym stories so strange that it’s hard to tell if they are true of fake.

However in today’s modern time where almost everyone is equipped with a camera or a smartphone, there are truly strange situations captured on video in the gyms across the world.

One such situation happened to the powerlifter Evan Kardon where a local gymgoer that hates deadlifting litterally sat on Evan’s barbell to prevent him from deadlifting. Here is Evan’s video:

So this happened… while getting to take my last warmup set of deadlifts this member(does NOT work at fitness connection) offended by my use of chalk decided to take it into his own hands to prevent me from working out! Before this moment he stood a few feet from me for 10 plus minutes waiting until I would chalk my hands again. He then sat on the barbell like that for over 15 minutes waiting for the manager to come! The second clip is him watching me for another 10 minutes as I remove the plates from the barbell and clean it! Wanted a big deadlift for my birthday but sometimes life throws you curveballs like this! 😢Like and SHARE please! deadlift #deadlifts #deadlifting #powerlifting #gym #fitness #physique #bodybuilder #bodybuilding #ifbb #olympicweightlifting #crossfit #girlswholift #kingofthelifts #zonesmellingsalts #animalpak

In the comments of hist post Evan said that the angry man was stalking him and sat on his barbell right before Evan’s heaviest set. This reaction was provoked because of Evan’s chalk use. The angry guy thought that Evan was previously kicked out of the gym because of his chalk use, so he was sitting on the barbell until the gym manager came to settle things out.

Of course, many people that watched the video think that mr. Kardon created this whole thing on purpose for internet fame. If this is the case, his plan has obviously worked because the video got viral.
