    I kinda hate it when people stand around watching you lift.

    whenever i do a heavy set, you can see people stop working out and waiting for me to attempt :hsugh:

    No, because I don't do anything impressive.

    For some lifts, people looked at me in pity... Not so much now, I fit in more :)

    I know when I lift people always gather around me...


    ... they point, giggle, and laugh. Sometimes they throw things. Ok, not really, but yea, I never do anything impressive. I'm just happy I make it to the gym regularly now... that's as impressive as I am so far.

    Try being a girl. I was working on my abs yesterday and this one guy would not take his eyes off of me. It's so annoying! :squint:

    Maybe I should change my mindset when I'm being stared at. I can pretend I'm a celebrity.:mamoru:

    when I'm preparing to lift, and during the lift, I'm usually too focused to notice anything but myself.

    and if by chance I do notice somebody, then I'll use it as an extra bit of motivation.

    I've had a few attractive female friends who dress in in really tight/revealing spandex at the gym complain about guys looking at them. What do you expect?

    They wear that just in case there are some hot guys in there. Then they get annoyed when guys they don't find attractive look :greddy:

    it's distracting

    though sometimes it can be motivating.

    If I'm at the school gym I get watched if I'm pulling, if I break out some bands or I'm squatting with gear on. Otherwise not really.

    I was in sweatpants and a tanktop. I expect to be able to work out without people staring at me. It's the gym. Don't they have better things to do?

    let me guess, the sweatpants were skin tight and the tank top showed cleavage? you have to expect guys to look.
