    There's this dude at my school gym...he's kinda a built guy. But things that annoy me the most about him is...

    -after every set, and i mean every SET he does of anything...he gets up, walks to the mirror, and starts flexing while looking around to see if girls are looking at him.

    -also, I saw him again today. he was doing his workout, then walks up to this girl that was doing her cable pull-down exercise...it was just her standing there...he hikes up his shirt, flexes his abs while staring at her/himself in the mirror, stands there for a good 10 seconds to see if she notices, and walks away.

    -oh, and this guy does nothing but upper body. his legs are shit. one day i saw him flexing his "calf" muscles. i busted out laughing in front of him. then he walked away.

    -all in all, half his workout consists of him looking at himself in the mirror.

    i may be hating a bit, but dammit...the gym is for progress...not a fitness show.

    arnold says you should flex after your sets. Ronnie flexes in the mirror during the unbelievable vid. I'd say teh gym is for lifting, not looking at others, :dunno:.

    the gym is for lifting. Not worrying about what other people are doing. On a side note he sounds like a douche

    true that. it's just hard to avoid when the gym is so small, yet we always end up in the same area around the gym.

    If you are body building you look at yourself. I really like the large mirrors I used them to check my teeth and look down my throat.

    Seriously, one time I walked into the gym and this dude couldn't get the weight off his chest on the bench so I quickly ran over and got it off him. I look over and there's this preppy frat boy making love to himself in the mirror:greddy:. Just think if I had not come over and helped him the frat boy may have been interrupted :noes:.

    dude is nowhere near body-building status. more like fratty mcfrat status.

    ok, no more hating.

    is this the white guy that absolutely ALWAYS wears a wifebeater to the gym?


    the guy i hate at gregory is the dude who obviously only worked his arms for the first year or so he was lifting, and never wears anything with sleeves... ever.

    you at a library? im in 1st floor UGL right now.

    theres people that do stupid shit all the time. most of the time it doesnt bother me as we have ~6 power racks at gregory... its the people that do jazzersize on the olympic platforms that piss me off. theres only two of those, and when im psyched to lift hard and heavy on that, i dont wanna watch people doing stability ball work waiting for them to be done.
