Dumb things people say in the gym

ad

I usually train in my basement. I’ve been working out of town and using a local gym.
Some hillbilly asked me today if I’m on steroids.
I just looked at him and he says, I could get bigger but I don’t want to buy new clothes.
Lol
The dude looked like his shit was from Chess King...

Chess King, WOw! Brotha you are taking us back...lol....and yeah once upon a time I got my Z Cavariccis there...and they made my waist look skinny while looking like I never missed leg day. AS for the clowns in the gym, I pay them no mind, I just have never appreciated the folks that are in the rack, looking in the mirror, without repping.

This isn't what someone said but more of what they were doing. They were doing flips off of benches like park core flips I was thinking to myself what do I tell these kids but then I realized anything I say to them doesn't matter they already know people think they are gay and don't care

Same guy this morning was doing quarter reps if that push downs with the whole stack lol.
I hope he doesn’t short stroke his old lady like that lol

"Are you done with this machine?"
While I am still fucking sitting at that machine! Clearly not asshat! I'm not done until I get up!

We have a couple guys that talk on phone for half hour or more while sitting on a machine or bench. Ugh!

Shred777's picture

I don't bring my phone in the gym. I lock it in my car. Their too fragile to carry in my pocket and workout and I cant lay it down because of thieves.

But how do you post on your Instagram during your workout? Biggrin

Shred777's picture

Sometimes you gotta make sacrifices bro. I don't even break out the good gym selfie clothing anymore. I'm workingout in tore up and paint stained clothes. I leave the gym looking like I just walked off a construction site.

Janus's picture

Makes me wanna smack the phone out of their hand.

Rustyhooker's picture

Right?! Get a call and head off to the side so others can keep on cookin

Almost no traffic at 4:00 AM, can even get the Smith Machine if so inclined to do so.

I hear a couple things that burn my ass.

1: well that's just easy for you!
2: I could do "blank amount" years ago too, they are either my age or younger.

The guy who clean and presses 100kg and then throws it onto the ground to be sure everyone has watched!

Halsey's picture

Lmao, the chicks I workout with every morning chewed my ass for this vary same thing this morning. 225lb though, they should be used to it by now( been working out with the same people for years).

Saint gannett's picture

Noooooooo, not you! Zimmer Amendment after the riots of 1995 meant that no money could be spent on weights and that meant that if it broke, it was gone.... just dropping dumbbells could get a man into a fight post 1995. Guess we're not in that place any more and I should get over it, but I really HATE dropped weights.... I add +2 to any partner's reps for that... unless, gently turn the wrists over and let it drop.... P.s. 100kg is 225lb :-) I did see a guy literally groan and throw one of the 50kg dumbbells once and that fucker bounced right onto his toe! I had to laugh... though the bastard still finished his workout, gotta give him that!

Edit: P.s. If I am not trying to hook up with a chick I tell them to do theirs and I'll do mine! End of! If I do want to get with them, will, I might even carry their weights and adjust their seat... pun intended.

Halsey's picture

They're bumper plates in a crossfit room with a concrete floor if that helps! 100kg is closer to 220lbs, like I said i was at 225lb, lol

I'm blessed with a gym that has a surprising lack of dumb and obnoxious people. There's only a couple people always complaining how other people are only big because of steroids while they're on their phone filling their social media feed. And recently some "Sarm kids" joined who start taking their shirt off once they notice a single vein popping.

Dylan44's picture

Damn i hate this skinny sarm kids

The age old classic is still one of the best - 'Thing is ya see is I don't like to get too big cos the Mrs doesn't like it'. Yeh course you do mate - becoming too big without really wanting to is a problem we all suffer with Lol

Pale's picture

Yeah that is probably number one on the list of stupid things. I haven't worked out outside of my basement since covid began. I miss the social aspect a little, but not all the dumbasses and or drama.

Sam I Am's picture

I’ll take my basement any day.
By the time I’ve driven there and back I’m done at the house...
Then there’s the fart factor. Not that I don’t at the gym, it’s just more comfortable on my equipment...

Shred777's picture

LMAO

Molinin302's picture

It's not what's said, it's more the invented exercises I see people do. I'm surprised there's not more injuries... lol

Sam I Am's picture

Yea I’ve seen some weird dip variations...

Makwa's picture

I think those exercises are called crossfitting or something like that.

Janus's picture

Chess King...lol...what a throwback!
I like the guy that is a 140lbs...grunting and slinging weights as he curls...then flexes in the mirror.

Rustyhooker's picture

I saw this utube video.....
