    Never offer advice to anyone at the gym, except for two occasions:
    .
    Someone asks for your advice.
    .
    Someone's in imminent danger of serious injury or death.
    .
    So the next time you see someone squatting higher than what you deem acceptable, or smashing the bar against their sternum while benching, or using lots of body English on curls, just let it slide. For every person you might "save," there's a million more you can't. It's a losing battle. Also, you may not know what their training goal is. Maybe they're purposefully doing overloaded half-reps on the bench press. That's a legitimate technique many powerlifters use. It's not always "wrong" (though I admit, it usually IS an ego thing when you see it in a commercial gym).
    .
    Wanna know the best way to inspire your gym buddies? Be inspirational yourself. Develop a physique that might inspire people to ask how you built it, and train in a way that others should emulate. Think about it: Have you ever seen a guy whose physique just blew you away, and didn't you find yourself curious about how he trains and eats? My advice is to BE that guy. Worry about your own training habits, because there's a chance they aren't perfect either.

    I agree, you just can't win and you end up looking like a dick for trying. Unless it's a teenager who obviously doesn't know what they are doing, I just leave it alone. I remember being a teen in the gym and an older guy corrected my friend's form...we took the advice and learned from it...plus we thought it was cool that he was talking to us at all. But, you can't correct an adult.

    I help teenagers from time to time, you can tell by how they hold themselves if it is cool to help them out. Most are very appreciative and then start asking more questions ( I know it can take some time, but we were put here to help others and if it takes an extra 15 minutes out of my day, why not)

    The only other time I have helped is when a mom who is clueless is trying to train her son; they acted relieved when I step in and show them the proper form. You can see from her look that she is in over her head ( and someone might be getting hurt if they up the weights).

    I have decided that you cannot fix stupid. In or out of the gym.
