  1. there is only one shoe for me



  2. I read this thread the other day and laughed. And then I noticed the most hilarious thing. A 20 year old kid with a bandanna, underarmour shirt(my 4 year old could wear) a bleached mohawk, and adorable little toesy sockshoes! And guess what he was doing? Sets of 2 on flat bench with 10 minutes between sets. PRICELESS.

    I told you.

    There is a high correlation between Vibrams and douche. It's science.

  4. While we're venting...

    People who ask my advice in the gym about something, start to listen, don't get told what they want to hear, then begin to debate with me. Stop wasting my time.

    Or, ask advice, you give them advice ("my shoulder hurts" stop doing presses behind your neck and ungodly amounts of upright rows and front raises), listen to you, then turn around and keep on doing what they were just doing. Again wasting my time.

  9. Haven't seen anyone talk about curling 3 inches from where you rack dumbells. Am i the only one that gets pissed at **** like that? Take a few steps back so the rest of us dont have to watch out for swinging dumbells. On the topic of curls, if ur curling and looks like ur bowling or some ****, straighten up ur damn form

    Rofl, too true

  11. Asking me what I take, then when I tell them they give me a look like yeah right. Then I really want to kill them, honestly if I wouldn't go to jail I'd clear this world of a few gene pools.

  12. even though they are "trying" to help, people that offer a spot and lift as hard as they can at the first sight of struggle to lock out a rep, give me some damn time to get it on my own for christs sake

  15. Standing, crunching, whatever on bosu balls has to be my least favorite training fad. Ugh. Aside from that, I hate seeing people walk on treadmills for extended periods of time.

    This isn't a fad, but it's also something that pissed me off in the gym...I heard a group of women talking in the gym the other day and one of them, who was fairly petite, talking about how she burnt 2300 calories in a two hour workout. Sorry, but no you ****ing didn't. I managed to burn about 1300 calories in an hour a few times and I'm a 200 lb. man with really good cardio and it was SERIOUSLY hard. A 120 lb woman can not burn that. So many people that don't know anything tell other people this nonsense and they believe it, then change up their routines and diet based on crap information.

  16. Last night, a guy was on a bluetooth earpiece and talked to himself the entire time he was at the gym. What year is it, 2003?

  17. Biggest pet peaves at the gym..hmm.....
    1. Guys that think they are a bad a@@ becuase they got a strong bench..or are on some ph's or juice and think they are tough cuz they are big.
    2. Guys that can bench alot and think they are gods....but never factor in things like..how much they arch their back(which makes their flat bench a decline) or the fact that they have t-rex arms and only move the bar 10 inches...or the fat blowfish fellas that also have t-rex arms and bounce the bar 6-8 inches..
    3. guys who have the worse form and use tons of weight and try to star everyone down...lol..(punked more than few out).
    4. The juice crew that is on so much gear that they are too pumped to wipe their a@@ before they even start to workout.
    5. The super sweater who never wipes off the benches and wears the same stinky shirt that reaks of ammonia.
    6. Guys who have now discovered mma..and think they are the sh$t becuase they watch the fights and train with some guys who have no credentials, skill, or any f^ckin clue about any martial art..and are tapout geared up from head to toe.
    7. And guys who come behind me and try to do the same excercise i did and try to do more weight than i did...lol...but never can..( except bench..i gotta 78 in reach with ape arms and bench is my weak spot becuase i gotta puch the bar almost 3 damn feet...but still get 405.)
    8. guys who sit on the benches/ machines for 10 min between sets writing in there journal.( make note of the lift, set number, and reps..then keep going).
    9. the guy who puts three towells on different benches and machines to claim his spot and show he is on all of them..(love it when its on the one i gotta use cuz that towell hits the floor..lmfao)
    10. The juice heads that think that they are gods of the gym and are so bad..( if only they had a clue.)

    You will definitely pay more at a store like that, but you get a shoe that will actually work with your body and support you.

    After doing those tests, they pretty much eliminated 90-95% of the shoes they stocked as an option for me. They set me up with a pair of Nike's which are probably the best pair of athletic shoes I have ever owned.

    Guess what shoes they don't stock? Vibrams. Once I see marathon runners and Iron Man competitors using Vibrams and winning, nevermind...that won't happen.
    Just wanted to point out that I see people run marathons in five fingers, barefoot, and other minimlist shoes and finish in really good time. True, I have not seen any win yet, but many who I have seen win were wearing minimalist racing flats which are pretty flat, minimal cusioning, etc leaving not much there. Many of the big companies are making shoes focused on the same concepts.

    Not for everyone, but they have a place. In fact, they have helped me improve on my running. I had a tendency to heel strike to much and they helped me to correct that and helped to strengthen muscles in my lower legs which improved my mechanics as well as helps to lead to less lower leg fatigue.

    Born to Run is a great book to read to get more info on running like this.

    Took me a while, but I know I've seen that training routine before...

    This is how they trained the girls in Alpha chi omega to deep throat so well

  25. why don't you guys spend more time training, and less time worrying about what everyone else is doing??? lol, never seen so many judgmental f*cks in one thread... reminds me of a bunch of sorority b*tches

    I do hope you see the irony of you being judgmental of us while complaining about us be judgmental (paradox much)? I'll save you some time, just go stand in front of a mirror and repeatedly tell that other person you see that he is a "judgmental f*ck". Tell me who wins.

    If I wanted to be judgmental, I might choose to mock your self taken, stereotype, shirtless, iphone in bathroom mirror, myspace photo, but hey I won't.

    Are you talking sh*t about people using their spare time to post nonsense on a forum instead of "training more"?. Way to be the typical idiotic hypocrite. No 1 gives a f*ck what you think dude, so stop being female trying to stir up some drama via the internet and go post about your latest cycle

    Yes I was... hypocritical? maybe a little bit, but I stick up for those you put down, so there is a difference.

    I really technically did not judge you.... I made suggestion to help your training, then simply paired you with an adjective describing the actions you were displaying in this thread, and finally compared it to a remembrance of mine.

    I was simply trying to deter you from continuing the douchebag meatball stereotype given to bodybuilders, but now my feelings are hurt because you don't like my picture.

    I'm sorry, what was it you were just talking about? The douchebag meatball stereotype? Again, I would reference your picture for exhibit A.

    Perhaps you didn't actually read any of our discussion on free running and its benefits v. possible harms because there weren't any colorful pictures. Plus, three pages of comments? I can understand how that could be way too much reading to catch up on (not like any threads go for 20+ around here). Your strategy of just barging in and proclaiming alpha male dominance may work around your friends (I'm sure they are spray tanned and come complete with V neck shirts and chin strap facial hair), but around here that won't cut it.
