-you consider anything over 10 reps cardio...
-people keep asking you why you squat "so low"....
-you bring food to the gym with you and eat it during sets,(oreos are the sh*t)
-you never work your traps yet they almost touch your ears...
-it is a workout in its self just gathering,loading,and unloading the bar for your squat/DL workout...
-you put in more effort into 1 set 3 reps than most people do into their entire workout...
-blood, it happens...

you put in less time than everyone else in the gym, yet you're the biggest/strongest
people always come to you for advice on bench, squat, & DL's
people ask you to write out workouts for them
people ask you if they can work out with you for the day
you hate seeing people curl at the squat rack
you never work arms, yet yours are bigger then most - if not - everyone's at the gym
chalk is the only reason your hands aren't completely annhilated with callous
sadly, your ass has better shape to it then the chicks at the gym do
people are quick to say that you use roids
you dread the idea of doing more then 6 reps
oh and your shins have a line of scar tissue down the middle from DL's

1) eat as many calories in a day that is possable
2) extra large shirts fit tight on me even though im 5 7
3) the bar bends over my back when i squat
4) do tons of wrist curls so i can actually hold the amount of weight im deadlifting
5) bench hurts my palms more than my chest
6) chains are a must have at my gym
7) all i talk about and recomend are power cleans and deadlifts and other powerlifts to people
8) it is impossable for me to cry, except when my cat died
9) eggs every day for breakfast
10) i eat a small meal every 2 hours

TNUBS-I agree about the ass part I bodybuild but still squat deep
deadlift- in your experience do girls like guys with big asses ?
wow that sounded so ****ing gay
12-26-2009, 10:54 AM
No homo of course, but all the girls I talk to said they like guys with big asses and small asses, as long as they are shaped and toned and not flat looking...
12-27-2009, 03:22 PM
I got one.....
warm up sets can't be more than three reps despite the weight.....because I loose my breathe.....even with just the bar
Maybe Im just unhealthy
12-27-2009, 06:07 PM
me and my wrkout partner were doing these spinning DB bench presses and i was doing less reps but when we got to the 85s i could get em he couldnt lol

taking a crap is always an adventure in stretching to my limits.
I never look forward to putting on undies, clipping toenails, putting on socks or tying shoelaces; I dread anything that requires me to reach for my feet.....

people grab up the 45lb plates when you come in because they know you are going to hog them all. (i am from a small town/small gym we only have 12 45lb plates total)
people stare...(again maybe just a small town thing)

10 - You run out of breath when you tie your shoes.
9 - The first question people ask you is what you do for traps.
8 - You consider anything over five reps "high volume."
7 - You ever order two extra value meals from McDonald's at the same time.
6 - When you talk about "gear" you're making reference to briefs, bench shirts, wraps, etc, not juice.
5 - You laugh at people who don't touch their chest when they bench and then brag about how much they can bench.
4 - You're idea of cardio is to see how many times you can go through the buffet line at Golden Corral.
3 - You feel awkward if you don't have scabs on your shins from deadlifting.
2 - You would rather take a beating than be called for squatting high.
1 - You think ammonia caps and Nose Tork are staples in your daily supplement plan.

people also, give you odd looks when you are warming up while eating pop-tarts and drinking OJ in the gym... I even made a lady do a double take when I rolled up next to her eating and warming up on the stepper, PRICELESS!
(I was hungry and didnt want to head home first, one of my better squat sessions though...my secret weapon is now OJ and pop-tarts!!!)
LOL: 9 - The first question people ask you is what you do for traps.
then you say Deadlifts and they look at you like you just spit in thier water bottle.

The half benching gets me EVERY TIME. NO ONE in my gym touches their chest... i dont get it, but i hate it. It's my pet peeve, especially when they talk about how much weight they 'bench'
01-26-2010, 01:08 PM
We are having a PL event at my gym in about a month, and the owner who is judging said he doesnt mind if the competitors dont touch their chest.
