But they have to leave it on the bar so everyone can see that they can do calf raises with three plates!!!

Yep had one of those *******es in there last week.

Also. My biggest peeve is those who come to talk. No. This is a gym. You get big. Only talk allowed is motivational.

I just read the last four pages and have determined that I am a gym clown. So here is my advice to you:

Please do not walk in front of me when I am looking over my shoulder at my back muscles in the mirror. I need to check myself out after every set and you are distracting me.


Yes that is me grunting. You weren't paying attention to me and how much weight I was hammer curling, so I have to grunt to get some looks.


Of course my too tight tank top is the same color as my shorts. Same brand too. Why would someone ever where an Under Armor shirt with Nike shorts is beyond me.


Every day is upper body day.


Try not being so rude and lift while I'm talking to you. This is social hour for me, if I want to tell you about how many grams of protein I ate today, I damn well expect you to listen to each meal I have consumed.


Speaking of me speaking to you, maybe try taking your headphones out so I don't have to yell. I'm trying to show you how you can lift 20% more by arching your back and bouncing the bar off of your chest.


I understand that you think it is just a curl bar and don't know why anyone needs to carry around a duffle bag to lift it, so let me clear this up for you: Carrying a duffle bag around the gym gives me instant gym cred. I carry my phone, jump rope (that I never use), water bottle with shaker, creatine, latest muscle mag, notebook that I jot down in after EVERY set, cologne, extra shoes, and lifting gloves. The essential item needed to conduct a set on any station (that is why I carry it to EVERY single lift).


And No, they're aren't any hot b**ches in here.

Lol. What's wrong with the notebook? I like writing down all my numbers so I can see my progress.

I arch my back to bench. I don't bounce the bar though, seems to hurt.

Arching your back is acceptable because you're supposed to pin your shoulders to the bench. Looking like a rainbow is a whole different story...

Arching during a bench press is perfectly fine as long as your butt stays planted to the bench, also feet should stay on the floor. No crazy legs. :-)

Some of us have it worse than others.

Here's what my brother said about his gym:

I saw him a few weeks ago trying to tell me you do Cleans without even standing up at all. He has a thick accent and bad English, I think Italian. Then last week he asked if I did hand balancing like Chinese lifters and he started trying to do handstands, except he couldn't and he fell over once or twice. In his underwear
This what gyms are like in other parts of the world:

And if you really get tired of your gym, you can always go outside and try Prancercising!

That's because you're bouncing it wrong!

there is only 1 picture work looking at in there hahaha.

arching your back is acceptable, just a waste of energy. As well as no crazy legs, flexing them is as well is a waste of energy that could be used towards that set.
