I've also seen a few women actually back their butts up to doorway while doing Straight-leg Deadlifts with pitifully light weights (20-30 lb barbells). This prevents their hips from moving backwards as they lower the weight. Why anyone would want to do that is a mystery to me.
I also saw a teenager teaching his younger brother how to do Decline Bench Presses. The younger boy did it correctly lowering the bar to his lower chest. Then the older brother "corrected" him, having him lower the bar to his collarbone. It was painful to watch.
Haha, So funny; I just watched the same thing happen last week at my gym; except it was a 20 year old male trying to train his girlfriend on the incline. Lifting partner and I just watched, shaking our heads.
My second favorite is the "throwback" bicep curl where it looks like they are trying to do a compound bicep/lower back workout...of course he brags that he's "curling" 100 pounds. Classic.
