Every single novice who comes to the gym should, first of all, learn the proper techniques that are used during the exercises for muscle growth, and develop the necessary communication between the brain and the body, or something the body sculpting experts call “the muscle’s brain”. However, left to their own resources, these novices are often left to figure out the gym equipment by themselves. This is how one novice solved his gym dilemma.

This poor sob clearly needs a girlfriend! Dude is all dressed up, the focus is sharp, headphones on a probably blaring with music too loud for him to think what the heck he is doing. We always have the best intentions to workout consistently and reach our fitness goals, but after a while, we sabotage ourselves and give up. Why do we give up when we know that reaching our fitness goals is so important? Sometimes, however, giving up might be a good option since some people are just not meant for the gym.

We gotta say, that is as unique a movement as any. For those of you who are not well versed with the machines at the gym, that is a cable lat pull-down machine. You grab the bar, stand at an angle, engage your latissimus dorsi muscles and pull down. It is pretty self-explanatory really.

You know you should probably exercise, but starting a new workout habit is hard. It's tough enough to get up early to go to the gym without enduring painful side aches and uncomfortable itching through your workout. This guy here is the perfect example of a person that is dedicated but just might not know the ropes just yet. However, it doesn't hurt to try and that is exactly what he does.

The next day after an intense workout at that gym can be even more challenging than the gym itself! Your muscles and body get sore, you do not want to move and you just want to lay in bed all day. Sometimes the workout can be so intense that your muscles tend to cramp up easily even days after that workout. That seems to be exactly the case in this clip here!

This dude, however, has either misinterpreted the machine's purpose, or is completely engulfed in the world coming out of those headphones. Either way, we are treated with a generous dose of “facepalm”. Will someone get that guy off the cables before he hurts himself or worse – breaks the machine? And someone please find him a girl!

Seriously though, both hip thrusts and lat pull-downs can be dangerous if not executed properly, even if it is just for the fun of it. Hip thrusts can seriously damage your spine and back muscles if not executed with the correct form. Eye gaze should be forward, chin tucked, torso level with a slight posterior pelvic tilt. If you are not certain you are doing it right, for the love of gym, consult a trainer!

At the end of the day, it is most important to give it your best even though it might be difficult. Trying and failing is better than not trying at all. After all, he does try and that's what counts!
