    I pull way too slow for that, haha.

    Saw a guy the other day, doing bent rows and staring at himself in a mirror.

    "Hey," you might say. "He was just checking his form."

    That might be the case, except this mirror didn't go all the way to the floor. Bent over, all he could've seen was his own face.

I mean this one guy had his chain on and clean pressed blue gene pants, and a dress shirt. and on the chest press doing 10 lbs like he really working something. And Dig this! before he gets off the machine he sets the weight to 110 lbs. i'm like....wow really now. Weak ass fool.

    Looking straight ahead keeps your back straight.

    the dress shirt is a little odd but I've seen guys that actually wear flip flops in the gym ..... and not just working the circuits but running doing deadlifts even wearing FLIP-FLOPS lol. That's just begging to get your toes broke or to fall of a tread mill

    Flip flops are great to deadlift in. They have no padding and they're flat.

    And do you really think a thin layer of shoe is going to somehow keep your toe from getting broken vs. not having it there? Unless you're wearing steel toes to the gym, it's a false sense of security.

    I used to hit the gym in high school and found it a great place to vent, but you would never hear me screaming, I'd just smash bigger weights cause it helped in my chosen sport at the time. Anyway, I hate the gym. Waste of time lifting weights in a room full of posers and poofters. But I still signed up recently as it was a Christmas present and there is a pool there (Aussie summer is hot). Went for one session and remembered why I hated it. I'm not in the best shape, as I haven't hit the gym in years, but I can hold my weight in body resistance exercises and, although very recently quit smoking, have reasonable cardio, due to TKD and Muay Thai. But the look these fags on the benchpress gave me, or lack of look, the kind where they glance, sneer and ignore, irked me somewhat. There were five of them around one guy on the bench, the guy was doing nought. They try to look intimidating, but their muscle structure would allow for the haymaker only, so it is comical. I don't really care about them, but my girlfriend started going to do all the girl machines and she reckons the dudes all stand out front, singlet and designer sunnies, checking themselves in the reflection, while checking out the chicks in the cardio room. Fortunately they have a few heavy bags, so I'll go with her next time. At least she won't feel intimidated by some pumped up pussies who use the gym as a social club, spending hours doing exercises designed to be completed in a couple of minutes.
