Today, I went to the gym to lift weights because my arm muscles are pathetic. In order to use a machine, I needed to pull out a knob to adjust the seat setting. After an embarassing struggle, a worker came over and helped me. Turns out I'm not even strong enough to adjust the seat settings. FML

I would say to buy some of your own free weights, but I doubt you would be strong enough to carry them to the cash register at the sporting goods store.

Perhaps you should've started with some freeweights? (i.e. barbells...)

Show it anyway

You don't have to be rude about it.

wether your a beginner or an expert/professional weight trainer knobs to adjust seats can still get jammed or stuck so u cant judge the op just bcuz of a he couldnt move the knob

but he said the worker helped him.. He might have mentioned if it was stuck or something. But really if your too weak to move one of those then you really shouldnt eeven be strong enough to lift your arms. YDI for not just living in a wheelchair

sounds like pathetic was an understatement.

In case you guys didn't realize, op is a girl

Perhaps you should've started with some freeweights? (i.e. barbells...)

Start with dumbbells. Barbell is usually 45#... If you can't adjust the machine, good luck with a barbell.

It is a good thing you are working out then. You obviously need it. Desperately. 

Don't worry- it might have been jammed or something? Or you might not have been doing it right. I really think there was something else, because no one is that weak that they can't adjust the seat settings. So, don't worry, chances are you are not pathetically weak.

They probably make it super hard, so you feel guilty and want to work out in that gym

oops. srry, i accidently put YDI, when it should b FYL... srry... :-/

I did it on purpose

They tend to jam if you don't take the weight of the seat off the pin. You're not weak, just silly =)
