HATED training fads (venting)

Page 4 of 6 First ... 23456 Last

  1. 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?


  2. Biggest pet peaves at the gym..hmm.....
    1. Guys that think they are a bad [email protected]@ 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 [email protected]@ 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

  10. 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.

    It's kinda ironic because I make fun of and laugh at BB'ers more than anyone.

    OMG GOLD!!

    You make a reasonable argument, and then cloud it with put-downs and ignorance. No I did not read the 20+ pages in this thread, nor would I waste the time, when i can be reading documents of meaning. So maybe you were not one originally described in my first statement. However, you decided to defend and offend in your response, and now you batter with primitive and un-original insults.

    You have now referenced my picture twice, and have really only continued to add evidence to the fact that you pass judgment on everyone, and either are not happy with yourself, or just envy others.

    hardly... but I bet i know what he thinks of you when he looks at your avy picture

    quite a change of writing styles?

    avi picture aside, you do happen to come into threads and try to project a tough guy persona. especially in this one. if you got nothing to add to the discussion just keep browsing to the next one, you know.

  22. Can't we all just get along?!!Come on guys we all have a passion for the same thing here lets not forget that instead of bashing each other.Just trying to help.

    What you fail to realize is, you barged in here and condemned the people in this thread as the "douchebag, meathead stereotype" all while personifying that stereotype. That is the reason for the harsh responses. As far as me passing judgement on everyone and me being unhappy and all that blah blah.... No. I only passed judgement on you (your online behavior more specifically). Prior to this, we discussed the pros v. cons of free running/minimalist shoes. There was quite a bit of disagreement, but it was a good convo and no one was divisive (enter you). So just drop the "I'm awesome" sh*t and we will move on and get back to the thread.

  24. I have yet to see anyone wearing barefoot's at my gym. I only see the people who snatch gwar out the chatahoochee river wearing them. My 18 year old cousin is dying for a pair, so you probably outta get used to them.

    I don't like these new hologram energy bracelets. retarded, but hey, whatever floats your boat.
