    that's a lie. you're just trying to look hardcore bro :rofl:

    as much as you'd love to say that you only see yourself or wahtever gay bs, you DO in fact pay attention to others.

    The only thing I really pay attention to is idiot skinny/fat kids lifting more than they should and using bad form and hotties/cuties. The only reason I pay attention to the idiot kids is if they're near me and might need a spot.

    my gym has only 1 squat cage so i end up waiting for it looking at this middle aged man quarter-squatting 95 pounds with wraps, gloves, and that stretchy belt that makes your stomach sweat

    you got me and when i meant "hotties" i meant guys.

    edit: nvm i'll rephrase that, i dont do that "bullshit its only all me in the gym stuff", I say hi to my buds and what not...what i meant is I don't purposly stare and analyze other people around me, its a waste of time.

    ive seen some strange shit, most of it is personal trainers that I swear stay up late at night, smoke dope and think of the most fucked up exercises that HAVE to include the stability ball for their clients.

    nah, she is a personal trainer who brags about being a nutritionist.
    Seriously, in 5 years at my gym I can count on one hand how many personal trainers ive seen train on their own time.

    thanks man, you saved my life!





    not a funny story but one of my favorites. there was about a 260-270lb guy doing 1/4 squats working up to 400lb+. it was squat day for me. whatever he was quarter squating was what i actually do for paralell depth. hes screaming and yelling with his gold grill on and im on his right in the other rack hitting depth with same weight hes doing quiet like a hamster. i made him look like a tool in the end.

    i always feel weird grunting during certain exercises but sometimes it takes effort to keep from doing it and i really can't spare the mental power if i'm lifting something fierce lol

    I really think that I would be the joke at the gym. I have just started going regularly and I am a newb trying to loose some weight and gain a little bit of muscle. Usually I am just too self conscious to pay attention to anyone.:o
