    Anyway... there's a guy who used to be a trainer at another gym I used to workout at. Really good shape IMO... about 5'8" and 190lbs and <10%.
    He just recently cut up and was down to 180lbs a few weeks ago. Impressive upper body though I've never really seen his legs.
    Anyhow there's this old man who happens to be my number one fan for some reason. He's talking to the other guy and when he sees me turns back to the other guy and tells him that if he ever needs any advice or tips on getting bigger to ask me. While we have different shapes I personally think this guy is definitely a few years ahead of me mass wise. I was pretty embarassed while the guy didn't look too pleased.:ugh:

    Then I'm Rocky, working out in the gym and the old man must be Mick.

    x2, i try not to bring anyone and try to keep it silent as much as possible. i work out better when its silent.

    as for the shut down, dont feel too bad, at least someone suggested you comming from an gym fame man. but the point of getting healthy and working out is for YOUR own self, not others. so fuck what that man thinks of you. at least your better than him on 1 mans list.

    the only people who ask me stuff are people who really have no clue what they're doing & probably ask me because i put up decent weight & am near them, i dunno.

    LOL! You guys are projecting. ;)

    Actually a few years ago something similar happened. I'd been back at the gym a year or two and this guy was benching 275 for about 10-12 reps. He was maybe 6' and I think around 180lbs. I think he was still warming up only though.Anyway went up to him and gave him props and asked for any tips.
    A few days later I was doing straight legged hanging raises and the guy was nearby with this attractive girl. Anyway she says to him something to the effect that I was really strong or in good shape. I think this was even more embarassing than the recent one cause I'd asked the guy for tips.

    By the way, it seems the other guy the old man reffered to me seems a lil' pissed. Used to talk a little or exchange pleasantries. Lately he seems standoffish. Could be my imagination but my training partner also noticed. *shrug*
