some of the stupid things people say about working out
what are some dumbs thing people say when you at the gym about fitness one thing i hate is every little runt says how peanut butter sandwhics make you big and the peanut butter stick to your ribs wtf!!! how the hell is pb gonna seep out your stomach onto your ribs???

I don't think pb alone will do the trick- dumb dumbs in the gym. I had one guy tell me that I was doing my dumbbell curls wrong. Said I needed to do them super quick as to stim. my biceps more. I thought the guy was gonna nail himself in the head he was goin so fast. I just stepped back, had a chuckle, and kept on w/ reps."A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most." -George Bernard Shaw

i'm a trainer so I hear this **** all day. Here's the most common "can you show me some ab exercises I want to get a six pack by summer"

The classic line from girl: "I don't want to get bulky"
My wife tried that one. Now she works out with me...and her already gifted glutes just keep getting better.
01-26-2006, 06:09 PM
Had someone tell me he was a natrual body builder so he was only taking half a gram of protien per pound of lbm. I just laughed and said what a dumbass...
Another time I was in doing dips, I weighed about 250 lbs at the time and some guy come in with with GF and asked if he could work in with me. He weighed about 180lbs and put on a weight belt and put a 45 on it and did a quick set of dips that took about 15 seconds and told me go big or go home. So a few days later that same guy was doing seated calf raises with about 80lbs on it and his GF was with him again so I asked if I could work in with him. I loaded it with 7 45's did a nice slow set of ten then looked at him and said Go Big or Go Home and just smiled and walked away. He never said anything to me again...

the classics are always "work out for a couple hours a day to get huge"
or they just try and brag about how long they are in the gym for.

You guys ever get some scrawnny ass dude who thinks your creatine is some type of steroid? I'm like WTF, if I could drink steroids and it taste like fruit punch that would be the ****!
Then I'm like "well it's just creatine you should try it sometime", and then they're like "No dude, I'm all natural, and creatine is TOXIC."
THey then go and eat their postworkout meal which consists of mcdonalds and some twinkies.

I see soo many idiots where do i start, I love it when people talk about supplements like "oh your one of those guys who take all that supplement crap, what a waste of money, With all those proteins and powders and whatever." And how about the 60 pound preacher curl that involves 3 inches of movement at the top of the curl with the upper back and shoulder doing the lifting, while the other hand assists behind the forearm. Im doing strict form seated alt curls with 50 pounds so this guy looks at me like "pppfffff" and grabs the 70 thinking ill show him. My all time fav guy says dude your getting huge what kind of juice is best for getting huge? hmmm i think for a sec, as i ve never used juice, he then asks orange or grape, I heard grape has more protein.
01-26-2006, 07:45 PM
The gym idiot list is endless indeed. We had this one guy who claimed he gained 50lbs of muscle in 4 weeks using cell tech. The secret to it, according to him, was it had to be the grape, and it had to be from gnc.
Oh and I love the ones that interrupt my squat workout to tell me, women shouldn't be doing that. It will make your butt big.

My boss is a high school football couch, when he saw me drinking a protein shake he had comments such as, "Have you talked to a doctor about taking that stuff?" and, "I try to keep my players off that."

Here's a favoite classic dumbass line:
"I dont want to gain too much muscle because when I get older it will all turn into fat"

i love the really skinny guys who join for 3 weeks, bring in their Jay Cutler Muscle Tech workout, read it on the flat bench for 30 minutes as so no one else can use it, and taking breaks between sets to read more of his exercises, taking them countless hours in the gym of mostly resting. Oh, and its even better when they wear the spaghetti string wife beaters to show off their "buffness"
01-27-2006, 09:00 AM
Any kind of reading or cell phone use or excessive talk about what you did last night...or standing directly infront of the weight rack to do bad form curls, simutaneously blocking the mirror and access to the weights!.. amature trainers giving free advice..now this is a pet peeve list oh well.Originally Posted by tattoopierced1

1) there is this old lady (50) sorry beelz, who does a set on every machine and never 2 in a row. Well one day, I needed to use a machine that she hadnt been on for like 10 mins so I just used it. She comes up to me and says " I was using that" I have a short temper so my responce was " thats right, you were, now I am" she says, " I am going to tell the owner" Then I said " I will let him know, as we are going out to dinner after I take a shower" Its nice when the owner is one of your buds.
2) There is this dude who comes in with his great big head phones, Snoop doggy Poop blasting and does one set and then leaves. The bad part is, he isnt a member so he has to pay 5$ each time he comes in. Stupid if you ask me.
3) The fat kid with a "speed stack" telling me I need to do a cut? This dude is seriously 5'8 and 215 atleast with I would say 20% or more BF.
4) I dont do legs cause I run and that makes them strong enough Are you freaking kidding me?
5) can you show me what to do for abs. I am kinda chubby, ~~~thinking to myself~~" Chubby my ass, you are fat as hell~~~ So I recommend some easy cardio until they are used to it. But they say " No, I dont need that, I just want to loose my belly"
6) Any my favorite, right in the middle of a set, mp3 playing in my headphones, I got a tap on the shoulder, what do you know, it was the fat cross eyed kid who said I needed to cut, asking me how to do Tri pushdowns? Right in the middle of a Pushdown rep, what a dumbass!!!
Im out, now Im pissed off and want to kill someone.

hehe like that one.1) there is this old lady (50) sorry beelz, who does a set on every machine and never 2 in a row.

My biggest peeve is when people talk on their cell phones in the middle of a set. LEAVE YOUR CELL PHONE IN YOUR CAR!!

I love the fat know-it-alls who walk around the gym critiquing the way people who don't look like they know what they're doing how to work out. They won't come within 10 yards of me.. This one fat guy was tryin to act all cool, tryin to teach this kid how to do ****in kickbacks and after the ******* got done I went up to the kid and told him that if he ever wanted any advice that I would help him out. Sigh...
01-27-2006, 02:35 PM
My favorite ones are the ones that don't even talk. They come in with their designer gym suits, sit at the smoothie bar for over an hour reading fitness magazines while I'm doing cardio or pushin iorn, sweating like a dog, and when I get out of the shower and I'm leaving I overhear them complaining to each other that they haven't lost any weight. I want to stop in my tracks and say, "hey, get off your fat-ass and do something!"
01-27-2006, 04:01 PM
My favorite one's are the fat mother****ers who are pretty damn big(I'll give them that).
But they will load up bar with a lot of weight(usually their bodyweight). And proceed to use the worst form ever this one fat bastard would lift his ass so far up off the flat bench(It's always the damn flat bench none of them ever do legs). I could have crawled between his ass and the bench. He got 350 that day at 375lbs bw. At the time I was hitting 335 at 190lbs bw. And this douche starting making fun of me for my bench. I laughed and told him to try 300 lbs while keeping his ass on the bench, after a few failed attempts at it I had to pull it off of him. It was because he had already "burned out his muscles when he hit 350". He still did'nt learn his lesson
I never saw this idiot use proper form. Being a big-mouthed smartass I would sometimes make fun of him when he benched by yelling out "Hey,this dude uses his fat ass as a counter balance"
Funny thing is he used to be mayor of my hometown.

"I'm just trying to get toned."
That one still annoys the hell out of me. That and guys with no lats who walk around like they have a midget under each arm. There was this guy at my old gym, he used to do nothing but walk around the whole gym, real slow. He did slow laps around the place for an hour straight once. Maybe he was rehabbing a leg after surgery or an injury, but he did this for at least a year. It was just weird and annoying.
"Are you done?" This used to drive me nuts, not just when it was asked when I was in the middle of a set on a machine, but more so when I was playing racquetball and someone would pop their head into the court every five minutes and ask this. For some reason these idiots couldn't get that if the ball was still flying around and we were still going after it, changes are I and my partner were not ****ing done. As if the abilities to reserve a court and then tell time correctly were beyond these people for some reason.
People who stayed on the court 'cooling down' for 15 to 20 minutes into my court reservation time. Or the best, "Let use finish this point/game." **** you, it's 7:00 get out. Lucky I'm big, when I told people to leave they just did for the most part.
Something else that always bothered me, not something said but done, was guys who would use the dental floss method for drying their crotch after a shower.
Trainers who yell, "More! More! More!" Pumping Iron wannabe?

I love the classic "how do I turn my muscle into fat" you can't you fat asses, you have to burn the fat LOL. I'm still amused at the nu,ber of people who think creatine is a steroid and the people who think 1 gram of protein is bad for you

Today I was sitting IN the leg press machine, with my feet IN PLACE and a girl turns around and says to me "are all of those plates for YOU?" I wanted to say "No, I'm just keeping the seat warm."
