    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    my favorite thing i've ever heard in a gym locker room was said by one old naked man to another old naked man.

    "wow tom, your nuts are sagging lower than my wife's tits."
    "yeah paul, you can suck my saggy nuts"
    "why don't you just pull them up and suck them yourself."

    at which point i bolted for the showers because i just couldn't hold in the lulz anymore.

    I hate people that take Emevas seriously, but I also hate people that don't take his advice.

    I imagine they most likely thing the same of you. Like really, my point is, what is the acceptable level of taking the gym seriously? Because apparently there is one, because people are getting mad at people for both not taking it seriously and taking it too seriously, so I'm wondering what the "proper level" is so that I don't offend anyone in the gym. Am I supposed to lift with a lot of intensity but not a really great plan, to balance things out, or maybe show up with only my powerlifting belt but no chalk to show that I'm "cool" and not taking this stuff too seriously?

    The reason we hate the people who take it too seriously is the same reason we make fun of anyone who takes anything that seriously - they look and act like morons.
    Also, those who take themselves too seriously are just so much fun to mess with.
    Kinda like the folks that would post on a martial arts board that's about rooting out fraud in the martial arts? I mean, that's taking martial arts pretty seriously.

    Seriously, this thread just shows a healthy dose of misanthropy for everyone.

    In the gym I did my instructor assessment in they have a machine that you stand on which vibrates. It's apparently amazing for shifting fat....

    I scoffed and voiced my contempt quite loudly. Can anyone tell me whether it does actually do anything?

    Geez, anytime I shake stuff to make it shift, it's so that stuff settles to the bottom. Two weeks on that machine and you'll have six-pack abs, along with gigantic feet.

    I've heard a fair bit about this machine (can't for the life of me remember its name, though). Last thing I saw on the subject was that it had a positive effect on bone density.

    Call me old-fashioned, but my preference would be to use a wobble board or Swiss/bosu ball instead, though.

    I used to lift at a gym next to a bar... During the week it was a great gym . I went at night and did 3 day 1 off slpits. Every time I landed a day on a friday or sat. which was quiet often I would arrive around 8 or 9 and the gym would get flooded with drunk ass holes trying to keep their biceps pumped up. These guys would come in do set or two go to the bar have a few beers and come back and do 1 or two more sets. These are also the same jackasses that if I would see at the bar hitting on every girl that passed and leaving with the fattest ugliest girl in the whole place after they struck out all night. Weighing about 220 solid from roids and struggling with 225 on the bench and have legs the size of my forearms lol..... GYM PEOPLE REALLY DO SUCK

    I think it's called a Power Plate.

    Edit: And this is the study I was thinking of.

    1) It's likely the Power Plate people paid for the study.
    2) They didn't quite compare apples to apples - it sounds like the non-WBV resistance group was doing leg press/leg extensions, whereas the WBV group was doing various bodyweight things (squats, lunges, etc.).
