    My girlfriend at the time was asked once if she was training for ms. Olympia. She was fit (played tennis and soccer) but that still got a night hearty WTF from me.

    Luckily people don't ask me too much at the gym anymore. When I started at this one a few years ago, I'd never talk to anyone - just go in music blaring in my ears and get work done. Then as I began to make friends, they talked more and my time there became a social event as well...something that I really needed anyway. (Having a family now kinda puts a cramp on the ol' social life. Growing up sucks!!!)

    But every once in a while I get a girl in there who is outgoing enough to make smalltalk, and it seems that if I offer any advice on how to do something correctly, their response is the same..."I don't want to get all big like you!". HA!! Me? I don't think I'm that big, and I'm definitely not as huge as Kim (swollwilliams) up there! Dumbest thing is when someone alludes to me using steroids. I don't, never have, and never will. It's funny, but kinda insulting at the same time. I end up laughing it off knowing that if I ever did "use", I'd be in much better shape than I am now! Oh, well...no accounting for the ignorance of the general public sometimes...

    In a convo, he said to me..."Yeh man, I just really wana turn this fat into muscle" (while doing situps)

    Anyone ever hear the Trying to turn this fat into muscle B.S?! Never seems to get old in my gym lol.

    Imagine if it were possible...eat like a pig, get fat as hell, then go to the gym for a couple months and come out looking like Arnold cause all the fat converted directly into muscle. No need to even watch your diet. What a fantasy.

    I got that one last year too! I have legs like ****ing tree trunks (freakishly large with zero leg exercising) and an upper-body like a 15 year old girl (that I work on non-stop) so it wasn't too shocking! hah

    I must not look friendly in the gym because I never get stupid comments.

    Now outside the gym it seems to be daily. Especially the "Do you bodybuild?" Seriously, you have to ask!

    Or the can I touch you? Uhm..no!!!

    1) Why are you using squats? Leg presses work the back of your legs and the front of your legs, that's why you can leg press more.

    My answer:- That's not true. You can leg press more because you're supplemented to the seat pressing the external load over 45 degrees which factors in half the gravity in comparison to a squat, leg presses are quad dominant and are a MACHINE which allows your body to work only in a single plane of motion. The squat works the sagital plane significantly and overloads various muscle groups, it is considered the king of mass building exercises and causes testosterone and GH production in the body. If you're not satisfied with your squatting results, actually squat to or below parallel instead of your half squats.

    2) Hey, mister, does this machine TONE you?

    My answer:- Toning is dictated by bodyfat, exercises don't "tone you", they can build muscle but you have to be lean to be considered "toned", unless you're a genetic freak. Toning is more in the calorie deficient and intense cardio, not a machine fly.

    3) The best overall mass building exercise is a machine fly.

    My answer:- Shut up.
    If you're taking that much time responding to someone, when do you work out?

    If someone says something which i considered ignorant or pure bs, I just act as if I do not hear them and keep working out....don't have time to educate unless it's after i am done.

    im on a college powerlifting team and we always get a ton of stares during deadlift day and tons of dumb questions and remarks. like someone told me that deadlifts are useless and power cleans are better.... the same guy did bench every day for the longest time.

    one day my buddy was benching and some skinny kid was walking by and said "whats he on, creatine or something??" i busted out laughing
