Douchebags at the gym...
- 03-27-2011, 01:03 PM
Saw 3 frat kids walk into the gym with their cut-sleeve shirts and immediately start doing hammer curls. The funny part was they were standing so damn close to each other, it almost looked like they were over-lapping. Not to mention it was a slow day&time so the gym was fairly empty. I swear i only saw them do 2 sets and leave. Either way they looked retarded. I was gunna snap a phone pic but i didnt. morons

and thinkin about that doods fungal-infested skin all over the floor,
i am happy that i have been doin this.

Fresh one from today, some skinny dude who to be fair is ripped but looks like he's just the type who was born that way. He keeps lifting up his shirt and holding it under his chin while doing curls to check out his abs. It looks like he is working out in a sports bra, then he walks around like he is tough but he literally can only bench press 95 pounds. And in fact he almost dropped that on himself
once and had to use the middle rack on the bench and slide out from under it.

So does watching women, that wear spandex shorts, doing squats and straight leg deadlifts in between your sets make you a douchebag?
03-30-2011, 06:56 AM
No, but if you start doing 35lb BB curls with intentions of "wooing" the ladies. Then yes

Her ass was a little small for me. The key is once they look back at you, you are supposed to stop staring at their ass and make eye contact.

Haven't seen this thread in a while lol
I joined a new gym about 3 months ago. It's owned by a IFBB pro and has no heat or AC. It's the kind of place a douche bag can not survive lol

I'm personally a huge fan of Superbro at my gym. See, the guy thinks he's Superman, but he has the lifting integrity (and strength) of a frat boy who has stints at the gym - you know the type, they go for a month or two, then quit for a while before trying again. His last workout was just great-
-Loads up 4 plates a side on iso lateral high row, proceeds to do these 2 inch jerks with the machine for about 8 reps before getting tired;
-Picks up 55 dumbbells, starts bending his arm 10-20 degrees attempting to do hammer curls with the weight;
-Pins up most if not the whole stack (about 700lbs) on that 90 degree leg press, proceeds to do what might appear as calf presses but to an observant person reveal themselves to be leg presses.
This is the only bit of his workout I caught between my sets. I had some great laughs that day in the gym. And no, he is not getting results out of this workout.

Well yeah douchebags are afraid of sweat lol. How they gonna hit the bar after the gym if they're all sweaty? And God knows douchebags don't use the gym showers. "Those are for homos! Only people that shower in there want to see each other naked." Lol.
I stick with my gym at work or the one close to my place. 90% of the people at my work stick to aerobic machines, and those type of people usually leave me alone unless I accidentally set the bar down too hard during deadlifts, then I get a couple looks.
I like the guys at the gym that do curls and tris three times a week, bench 6 plates but only move the bar 3 inches per rep, then stare you down while you're doing 190 on bench after pre exhausting your tri's.

In general, guys that aren't training for an honorable or useful purpose are really just there for vainity which can trace back to attention from others. This in turn means that those Superbro's, newbies, etc. are spending equal amounts of time comparing themselves to others. But, since they are in the business of finding security in their appearance, they only compare themselves to people that are in lesser shape and they only compare their strong points to others weak points. It usually only takes about a month or two of this kind of mindset before that guy literally walks around like his balls are the size of Texas. Furthermore, thats when you start seeing stupid workouts, terrible form, and way too much weight for that particular person. They basically get to a point to where they are trying to protect their arrogance and ego with attention-grabbing routines - thus the super heavy weights, terrible form and weird behavior.
Which, btw here are my motivations for training -
1) My fiance's personal enjoyment (eventually to be my wife)
2) I want to become a pro-bb'er one day
3) I'm sort-of addicted to routine anaerobic exercise

good points sir!
i work out for the following reasons-
1. anger management
2. to get bigger legs
the squat and dead is a very ugly lift, only making my ugly even worse.... lol

I saw a guy working out with 1 of every workout accessory. He had those feet shoes, a super fancy weight belt, wrist wraps, underarmour, gloves, and the underarmour skullcap to top it all off. The workout this gear was needed for? Quarter squats on the smith machine.

This is a great thread. I was training chest Saturday (always my last workout of the week) and encountered an older-than-me gentleman (40-ish I would guess, maybe a tad younger) who was also doing chest. We chatted a bit and I made a comment on how my thighs were destroyed from the box squats I did 8 sets of the night before. He laughed and said, and I quote; " yeah, I don't train legs, it's to much effort. I just do arms and chest every other day." I didn't want to laugh in his face so I just nodded and went along with my workout. I now know why he never goes above 155lbs for 3-5 reps on bench.

I've also noticed a direct correlation between doing partial reps and wearing denim to the gym.
