    This popped up in my YT feed. Another Ďnovelí movement is my first thought as it can never be incrementally loaded. Iím not sure itís even very good for the shoulder. Why not just press, lateral raise, or clean ?

    It's a dumbbell flye with plates. In their training hall they don't have dumbbells, so he's using plates to warm his shoulders up. That is all.

    I’ve seen them doing that in our gym. Must be the latest fad.

    Every time someone sees a big lifter warming up by doing some movements with plates in his hands they think it's an actual exercise and start training it. I've seen videos where said lifters even joke about this phenomenon.

    Our gyms devolved into fancy coloured mood lighting, shiny chrome plated bars and no centre knurl. It’s like heading into a night club. I don’t know if I should start lifting or pole dance.

    I've never been big on center knurls. Hold onto the bar in the squat just fine without one. At my gym the ones with center knurls are actually all fucked in how they're laid out. The edges of the knurls and the ring markings are all fucking wrong.
