Candy crush guy

Today the guy I have talked about before for excessive phone usage at the gym was at it again, longer and harder than ever before.  In the roughly 35 minutes he was there I saw him complete exactly four sets.  Three of them were 135lb incline bench press and then 135 pounds on the flat bench for one set.  The rest of the time he was playing some sort of Candy Crush style game.

For those of you that may have forgotten this gentleman, he is not some millennial, most of which are hopelessly addicted to their smart phones.  This guy is a bald, dumpy looking middle aged man, probably around my age.  Somehow he has determined gyms are mostly about gaining a level or two in your phone game instead of putting in the work towards a healthy lifestyle.  Even though I have never spoken a word to this man in my life I already have determined I dislike him, a lot.

I guess it wasn’t a good idea to do lower body weight work yesterday on a knee that was already sore.  It’s all sorts of swollen and sore today.  Enough to give me an all day limp.  I’m dumb.
