    You ever come across these guys in the gym? I'm usually minding my own business (except for the blond chicks ass I've been staring at for an hr) and once every few months I'll run into the gym competitor. The guy who silently is competing with you or at least trying to keep up. Normally it's on flat bench seconded by incline bench, the most rare variation is on deads or pullups.


    The other day some old guy was trying to out bench me I think. He started off with a shaky 155x6-7 then did a full plate jump to 225 and somehow managed to get out 3 then I go to get a drink of water and come back, the guy has 315 on there just like me. It was like a 45,25 and a bunch of 10's. He called some random poor sap over to spot him and made the guy do 200lb curls for 6 reps. I proceed to do my normal set and the guy takes off leaving all his weight on the bar. :ugh:

    No one tries to compete with me because they can't. They can't even dream that big.

    You might have one thing for a short period of time and if that's going to be your claim to fame (I outpull BDR who's not built to deadlift but still pulls 700+) then that's really sad bro. :wtc:

    Not to sound like bigdamray ... but I think only 1-2 guys come even close to me in the gyms I go to ... so no doesn't happen. Certainly not in you guys league ...

    But certainly get those that think they can ... funny enough they leave pretty quickly. You know the types 80lb db's with spotter .. dropping weights noisy as hell. Then coming in doing 110's by myself, no noise and quietly putting the weights away.

    The COM has a fitness center now too but I didn't check it out, as long as it has dumbells and a squat rack i'm golden and i'll be working out there instead probably. Though looking at some of the T&A at the rec center makes me happy to be alive

    the last time i benched at my uni gym, 3 dudes got on the bench next to me and kept putting what i had on the bar on their bar and doing some kind of insane daredevil negatives. Now I can't bench for shit but they were all like 6'1 140 and had 275 on the bar, with the 2 extra guys spotting on each side, and it would slam down to the kid's chest then they'd all struggle to lift it up on the racks for 1 rep each time. Never seen anything like that before
