Blindfold? ...Check! Earplugs? ...Check!

Now? ....LIFT!!!

I just got back from the gym, and I saw something that I've never seen in my nearly thirty years of lifting weights. Yes...I saw a man lifting weights wearing a blindfold and earplugs. Actually, it was one of those sleep masks one wears on an airplane, and the earplugs appeared to be your normal, everyday, foam earplugs that one would also use on an airplane.

The guy would walk to one of the machines, sit down, pull the mask over his eyes, and begin lifting. When he was done, he would lift the mask up to his forehead, get up, walk to the next machine, and...repeat.

Why? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

Balance issues? Perhaps he hates looking at men?

Perhaps when you deny yourself sight and hearing, your muscles become stronger (you know, along with your other senses)? I'm totally going to market a new exercise dvd based on that idea....
