    lol. good point.

  4. hahaha.. gotta love stupid comments by stupid ppl..
    I used to be a fat dude. much leaner now. One of my so-called friends who is still a fat bast*rd saw me at the gym and asked for advice on fat loss.
    I spent 30 mins telling him about workout and how calories make you fat rather than dietary fat alone. Then he goes:

    "ohh so you can eat as much fat as you want ,as long as you workout at the gym and convert it to muscle"....

    I was so tempted to punch him in the face.

    see i like to mess with people so i make **** up..like..o u have to add fresh cut grass to your protein shakes, mix tuna with scrambled eggs in the morning, or ingest your protein shakes anally (no homo).

    or tell him to chew sugarless gum (if anyone knows where thats from, you win).

  6. Do you workout?

  7. lol.. i love reading the answers to these... i got one: so, i'm doing my hour of cardio, ipod in, hat pulled down low, soaked in sweat, cruising along.. one of those big balls to stretch and do abs on is a few feet from my stepper machine..this young guy comes up and looks at me and points to the purple-barney colored ball and asks am i using it. lol.. i couldn't help but smile. really, it is the ultimate sign of respect in the gym. when you clearly aren't using the piece of equipment but someone takes the time to ask you anyways..

  8. "what exercise works the legs really good?"

    thats is great when someone asks...a rare find today. i only do that to people i hate. this happened the other day, i waited for the guy i hate to walk away from what he was using, so i qucikly swoop in and when he comes back he says hey im using that...and i look at him and say..well its not like u were workin hard.

  10. "Hey dude, what are you up too?"

    "Why are you doing so many situps?"

    "Stretching is stupid, i never stretch and the only thing i get is shin splints" - Funny how you get shin splints, when you never run.. or work your legs. His workout was bench, Triceps, curls.

    "I don't need to change my diet, i'm doing fine" ....

    "Does that protein shake help you lose weight?"

    I fcuking hate january and the first half of february when we get all the new years resolutions and then just when its almost over, BAM, spring breakers - thinking they can go to the gym for a month and tone up for the beach. Get the fcuk out of my gym b*tch.

  12. 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.

  13. 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...

  20. Hahaha, some really funny things here. An old friend I bumped into gym on wednesday, had put on quite a bit of fat, well, he looked like he had a spare tyre around his waist to be honest, kinda like he was wearing an inflatable swimming float/ring around his stomach?! lol....

    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.

    Haha.
    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

    Reminds me of that late-night infommercial from the 90's with that dude yelling; "YOUR BODY IS A FURNACE!" and talking about eating pizza all day and being jacked as long as you bought their program!

  23. two skinny guys tell me while i am doing dips "you use creatine"

    me "yes i do"

    then the guy turn the back to me and i can hear him talking quietly to his bro....

    i answer:
    "creatine is good but it won t give you muscles"

    thebro asking "so you re not using creatine?"

    me "yes, i do but creatine is just a supplement (blahblahblah)"
    me "you need to come here like today and workout hard and sweet like i do"

    theskinny ask me if their workout was enough (they did like two pullups sets of 3reps)

    i answer "no you come here you workout one hour, you sweet and get pain"


    It s was a bit harsch but they understood.
    I saw the skinny last monday again no talk just "hello"

  24. 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!!!

    There's three things that come to mind.

    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.

  27. Today while working out two girls called me,

    thegirls smiling close to my body and watching me

    "You are beautiful and we wanted to tell you because we look at you working out and blahblah, we have friends with muscles but not like you it s amazing.. blahblah"
