LMAO! I have tried the silence approach as well--you don't want to reinforce them! It works sometimes, but with the guy I mentioned above, it did not. I swear we said 3 words the entire time, and he kept going on and on. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Here is another one similar to what you said:

The same guy I mentioned above, on another workout day, asked Jake a philisophical question about biomechanics in the MIDDLE of a strip set on leg press.

So if you don't talk to someone during a normal set, DEFINITELY don't talk to someone during a strip set lol. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Matthew 7:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
