DesktopWeb FormText   brawn : stupid dumbbell tricksThu, 20 Nov 2008 18:12:31 GMT # 

this is one of the stupid things i do in the gym. each gym is different, but my current gym has the dumbbells racked with the lightest pairs on the right and progressing to the heaviest on the left. so for the few exercises that i only need a single dumbbell, i ALAYS pick up the left-most dumbbell out of the pair, because its closer to the next heaviest dumbbell ... therefore it psychologically 'feels' like its 'heavier'. if i went to a gym that racked their dumbbells the opposite way, then i'd automatically start picking up the right-most dumbbell. i'm aware that i do this, and its complete nonsense, but i cant stop it.
