How gay are 'bodybuilding' tank tops?
I wore a beater to the gym tonight and felt like a TOTAL DOUCHE, but it is nice to be able to see your muscles working.
How gay are the bodybuilding tanks? I have a feeling one would have to be a total monster to wear one and not be a tool. Thoughts?
0= not gay
10= super gay

Its no more gay then shaving yourself, tanning, sticking a needle in your a$$, donkey calf raises Arnold style, 300 pound men covered in baby powder putting a super tight polyester shirt on one another, constant discussion about what PCT will make your boys hang lowest, standing on a giant stage in a pair of briefs posing in front of thousands of other men who are going to gossip if your bloated, etc.
Now if you said how gay is somewhere wearing the y tank standing on a Bosu ball to do cheat curls in a squat rack that would be a whole different story.Muscle Pharm Rep

that was a good way of putting it pmiller. The whole bodybuilding lifestyle can be called gay if you look at it that way. We judge other dudes is that gay? yeah, if you are gay.
what type tank tops are you refering to? I dont think working out in a beater is gay or any tank top for that matter unless you are wearing one of those really thin strapped with huge holes for your arms to go thru and the back straps are joined as one you know which ones im talking about? well its dumb to wear those unless you have alot of muscle to show.

I prefer to wear a t-shirt.
Any guys wearing less than are look tasteless.
If you are out of shape, that's pretty self-explanatory.
If you are in very good shape, then everyone thinks you are a c0cky bastard.

its hot in hawaii and even in the gym so its not a big deal. ill use sleeveless shirts on arm days just to see it better while i workout. And if im full of juice and just looking freaky ill throw on a beater but not during peak hours. I do it for myself, not to show off.

End of the day, I don't pay anyone notice in the gym, and don't give a sh1t what they think. Lifting is my own private space.

Most gyms it is inevitable that if you look better than other people there, they are going to hate on you.
If it isn't busy then that's ok, but I'd rather not have any negative stigma while i'm trying to workout. I find it distracting, IMO.

I personally always work out in a hoodie but I think it depends a lot on the person wearing it as well. There are some old dudes at my gym that still compete and they were the y tanks with the otomax giant pants and one of them still has a fanny pack, but that was the style when they were in their prime. Now on the other hand if someone walks in wearing anything including the tank and just makes love to themselves in the mirror while lifting thats a whole different story.

I used to train at this one gym and this guy always wore this y top singlet w/one of his pecs completely exposed and he had that nipple pierced. He would f**k himself in the mirror the entire time he was there. Everytime he'd do a pull up he'd actually nod to himself in the mirror at the top.

As long as they don't have short shorts on I can care less wtf someone else is wearing at the gym. However, despite that fact I feel like a tool bag (even though I don't think of others like that) if I wear a beater. I will wear sleeveless though and not feel that bad (escpecially in the summer because its hot as hell).

Grow it and show it!
First off I have to say I wear beaters, and low hanging tanks and anything else I can to see the results of my lifting. Looking in the mirror at the muscle I am working helps me with my mind muscle connection. I grow it I show it. Simple as that. I don't do it for others to look at me, and don't really care because I am all business in the gym. I am also in this partially for vanity sake. Otherwise I would choose to be a power lifter.
The douches are the idiots, t-shirts, tank tops or otherwise that don't wipe the equipment after they use it. Makes me want to wring my sweaty towel out over there head while they bench!
