    Talking Whats The Dumbest Thing You've Been Asked In Gym?


    As the title says, wanted to see what the dumbest / funniest / silliest things you've been asked or have heard in the gym before

    The funniest i remember was a guy who is a Pharmacist asked me, "Hey whats that?" I said "Its my protein shake.." He goes "Does it have steroids in it?!" I said...."no course not!"

    If that wasn't bad enough, he asked me If my protein shake works. I was thinking what kinda dumb question is that lol.

    Whats the funniest thing you've heard or been asked in the gym before. Lets hear some stories...

    "Are you using this?" when I'm clearly on another machine or bench.... I don't mind though, because they're just being generous and respecting my general area, lol.

    "Are u using the 17.5s" doesnt sound bad, until you factor in that I was on the bench pressing them at the time....

    ahahahahaha.. some of these are hillarious.

    Case 1, a noob back from uni days decides to workout with me.
    After the workout...
    Him: why are you mixing milo with water?
    Me: This isn't milo, it's a protein shake
    Him: Why do you need that much energy after a workout, why not before.
    Me(in my head): ........ (*what an idiot, doesn't even know the function of protein*)
    Me: Because i'm tired, and I need the energy to feel active

    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.

    Summer Gym Guy turns toward's his buddies "I told you he was juicing"

    funny story about creatine...

    at the place i used to bounce at one of the guys was a personal trainer. so he was in the locker room one day and was putting creatine in his water bottle with like crystal light or sumthing and an older guy runs out and gets a cop who is outside doing a road job. the older guy brings him into the locker room and says " there he is officer. hes doing steroids." the cop asks to see what he has in his bag, takes a look, looks at the old guy and says "shut the **** up and get your eyes checked."

    then the guy i knew took a half hour talking to the old guy about what creatine was...which is even more retarded.

    Not really....i would do that myself. Its how you are. I teach people, even if they insult me I try to do whats right on my part. Something you learn through having a faith a bit. I have had people treat me like trash, I treated them decent in return....later they come back and apologize for being retarded and seek to make amends, and I usually get a new friend who respects me alot.

    Being the bigger man I think is slowly being forgotten nowadays...If he doesnt educate the old guy, who will? You?

    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.
