    Top 10 reasons you fail at the gym


    I'm compiling a list of the top 10 reasons people fail at the gym for a shirt I want to make. This is in a joking manner so I'll start with this...

    10. You spend more time talking on your cellphone than lifting
    9. You utilize the mirror to admire yourself rather than perfect your form
    8. You perform reps of heavy weight at 1/4 range of movement
    7. Your routine consists of chest and biceps 5 days a week
    6. You don't squat or dead lift
    5. You barbell curl in the power rack
    4. You drop dumbbells and barbells after your sets
    3. You spend more $$$ on supplements than on your diet
    2. Your rest between sets exceeds your reps...in minutes
    1. You believe that steroids are the answer

    So out of 70 views nobody has anything to add to the list? This could be a fun thread.

    The world would be much, much better if the gym was a place of recreation with a somewhat team environment, and not a place of passed judgment and feelings of inferiority.

    That's why you should reply with suggestions. Granted alot of people might curl in the power rack. I'm trying to combine the best ones to make a top ten and then have the shirt printed for fun. It's like poking fun at people with mullets or guys who still pop their collars.

    Gamer curls in the squat rack, but im sure he wouldnt be happy if he wanted to squat and there were no racks open due to curl'ers. I still think it's a legit complaint.

    This totally happened to me today, when I asked the dude how many sets he had left he shook his head "no" and walked away quickly. He was curling just the bar.

    How about:
    I forgot to charge my ipod. the gym's music sucks. I left.

    I see your point for sure. For competitors at the highest level it definitely is the answer however for the average joe that is overweight or frail, it will most of the time only create problems.

    - You believe Jay Cutler uses MuscleTech.
    - You think eating clean means rinsing your food.
    - You bench and do curls on a medicine ball.

    nothing really wrong, just that the idea of dieting and supplementation for many people i see is going to the fridge first thing when you walk into the gym and chugging it during training. i dont believe you should have a heavy protein shake during training and shows a lack of planning/knowledge.

    I drink a gatoraid intra-workout sometimes, and some people like to have a drink with a heavy concentrate of BCAA's. I personally don't do the intra-protein shake thing, myself, but there are benefits to having carbs, protein, BCAA's, in particular L-Leucine, intra-workout, but that's another thread topic.

    We'll agree to disagree on this one

    currently i drink 2 servings of LG bc+eaa during my workouts, usually finish withing the first 30 minutes. other times (i cycle nitrates) ill drink 1 serving of powershock with 7 grams of bulk bcaa's.

    i think gatorade is totally fine intra-workouts too.

    the dictator thinks you made a nice post.

    Lol. Tell your grandson to stop sneaking into China with his South Korean friends for RAIN concerts, it looks bad on the family.

    I would and probably should take aminos intra-workout, I just can't afford it, so gatoraid or an even cheaper alternative, poweraid, is all I go for.

    I used to take the NP Bulk Leucine after my workouts. Just scoop a mouthful of the powder, which basically tasted like a mouthful of salt and gargle it down with my pwo protein shake. I've never tried the more expensive, flavored amino drinks.
