was just funny that everyone was avoiding them like the plague

/Fit/ made it sound like things were gonna be super awful, but the whole NYR thing seems to have largely skipped my gym. It's a little busier during peak hours maybe, but I lift early in the morning so I never have to compete for the squat rack.

There may have been a slight increase in the number of old men who show up just to get nude in the locker room and flash me in the sauna, though.

I have a very diffrent problem with this time of year
I go to my gym expecting dyel peeps messing around for my enjoyment
Instead i get all these collage and highschool kids who have 1-4 weeks off and come in to do real fucking lifts

Tfw both power racks are taken my packs of 3-6 teenagers deadlifting and almost no benches avaiable
I have trouble finding room just to do my dumbell routine.

Now i got to go early in the mouring or il get the fagots who all wait unt8l5pm to come in and lift together christ! I hate it.
>>
>>35511174
Same, if anything there's probably fewer people. Maybe because it's been so cold lately.

But I see way more pairs of women jogging on my drive to work.

For the past week Ive seen a new fat guy on the treadmill, morning and night. Dude is like 6foot 350-375. Potential for massive gains to be made.

I lift in the morning and cardio at night, each time Ive seen him I give him the nod. I dont talk to anyone at the gym, not gonna change that. Hopefully he understands this nod as a gesture of respect and encouragement.

I can relate. Its particularly annoying because I workout alone and move pretty quickly between exercises and I gotta work around groups of 4 to 6 dudes doing bench sets or all curling...
And then you get the random wannabe powerlifter who is legit strong but walks away from the bench for ten minutes an freaks out when someone assumes it is free...I think he is just angry because women stopped caring how strong he was a long time ago
>>
>>35511667
Yeah especially since 8/10 of my workouts are in the AM before work I avoid a lot of the newbies
Sad part is there are just so many good looking girls in the evenings but I just can't work that in to my schedule and its worth not being around a few qt3.14s in order to avoid the rush of newbies and guys that jumped on juice 9 months into lifting

There was this chick laying on a bench in the Smith machine. She was pushing the bar up with her feet. I don't even want to know.

There's been a knee brace on the floor for a few days. It moves around. Started off by the dip station, went to the dumbbell rack, then to the cable row machine.

That's not even the worst part. I get to the gym, and they're on an E-Z curl bar. Standing, facing each other, I *think* it was 2 25s and a 10 on each side.

In a fluid motion, this is so weird, one would curl the bar and yell "WHOOO". The other would assist that curl fully and sync the "WHOOOO". Then, the curl would go down into the other guy's curl/assist and repeat.

It literally looked like they were just flailing around. I don't understand.

My gf was mildly upset when I started lifting and I told her it's probably impossible for me to get big no matter how much I lift due to my genetics. I then pulled up some pics from natty body building comps and told her I probably couldn't even get half as big as these guys.

She's mostly stopped complaining after that so maybe that'll work for him.

Three female salespeople at work
First is a fatty that has been saying for months she's working on eating better, and actually has. Her goal was to cut out a lot of shit. Other (non-sales staff) are being supportive. Comes in Monday and is eating healthy, then leaves early to hit the gym. Comes in next day with some old but not out of date shit food. Comes in today, nothing but just bought shit food. Stops back by before I leave & has gone shopping for more crap. Says she's quitting the gym because it made her sick & couldn't eat afterwards.

Second one says she's going to start jogging again and doing a few other things. I got her in the Secret Santa office pool, so I got her the few things she said she needed to get soon. Come in on Tuesday and everything (including some untouched & unopened stuff) is in a box on my desk. Says shes not doing it and feels bad so I might as well sell it.

Third one has been working for several months on her candy & coffee flavored liquid sugar addictions. Enter three days of fatass customers telling her she doesn't need to be torturing herself. Enter three days of half her customers bringing her cupcakes, doughnuts and other things. I'm watching in horror at outsiders sabotaging that ship.

Me, I'm getting shit left & right because I just bought a new setup from Rogue for Black Friday. I haven't completely made it, but I'm close. If one more person tries to foist doughnuts or candy on me I'm going to snort a 50/50 mix of caffeine & creatine and then squat a car for reps before tossing the fridge of dietary horrors out.

I was going for a max attempt on squats and had to grind the rep out. Afterwards, I was sitting on the bench to catch my breath when an old skinny faggot comes up while motioning for me to remove my ear bud.

I comply and he tells me I shouldn't have the bar on my neck. I just look at him dumbfounded and say "what?" He says I will kill my spine doing that and then begins to demo the "right way"

He loads up two 35lbs plates on the Smith machine, gets into a lowbar position then proceeds to do quarter squats. I had to stifle my laughter. After his demo he tells me he learned that safer bar position from some powerlifters in the gym. Best part of all this were the lifting gloves he was wearing. His faggotry was complete.

I sometimes personally use much more controllable weight and focus on the negatives since I drop my weights all the time too. I guess when you want to focus on explosive lifts with heavy ass weight dropping would be optimal for sure.

That's it. The thing is, faggots, that 99% of resolutioners go to shit their gyms like planet fitness.

That's one thing that I hate much more, the huge influx of naked old men.

I can deal with the old women who steal all the lower Dumbbells and do aerobic routines. I can deal with the ham planets who take up all the squat machines because they want to compensate their large gut with a grossly large ass. I can even deal with this one gay dancer guy who will ride the lat pull down as it goes into the air and jump off the bench into a clean split on the ground, run across the gym doing ballet as he randomly reracked pl8s from different machines.

But nothing is worse then walking into the locker room and making dead eye contact with a 90 year old mans penis as he rests his bare ass on the bench you stretched out on earlier.

It happens and it's fucking dangerous.
I had someone grab my shoulder from behind while I was doing military press a couple years back. I had headphones in and no mirror in front of me at 1 AM (24 hr gym) and I didn't know I wasn't alone. I never expected someone to touch someone else mid set either till it happened. Needless to say, my immediate reaction was to turn around... mid set. With heavy weight on a military press. Resulted in me wrecking my right shoulder. Months off from any upper body movement. Type II separated shoulder that hurts from time to time to this day, doctors don't know why it never healed all the way and why it refuses to do so. I'm just now 2 and half years later getting close to where I was. And you know what he wanted? To see if he could work in.

Don't fucking touch people.

At start of deadlift session, trainer setup bar on the stops, then proceeded to drop it, commenting that its the safest way to put the weights on the ground.

I made a point of dropping the bar at the end of every set.

no one complained.

It finally happened today, This is the third time I've been to the gym since NY and the first two times was just as semi-busy as usual. I guess the NYRers were psyching themselves up for today:

>Fat old guy in black wifebeater just standing and staring whilst I do my squats with cocaine eyes, maybe does a curl or two
>hundreds of pajeets curling 5kg dumbells supersetted with 5kg DB bench press, with spotter
>every other /fit/ NYR stereotype.

I wish I could go back to my old gym, this commercial one is cheap and desu the one power cae is ALWAYS free, but at least I didn't have to put up with fucking spooky skeletons popping out right in front of me carrying fixed weight bars whilst I'm trying to power clean. FUCK.
>>
>>35527157

This was me before doing power cleans this evening. Honestly it felt like I was about to go through a really fucking busy junction in the car, where the traffic lights were broken and I was checking my wing mirrors constantly.

If he's doing high bar it shouldn't be on the neck or the back, but on the traps. Most likely he was using proper high bar form, but the old guy interpreted it as too high up. I've had people tell me the same when squatting high bar.

Yes. She has great face genetics and holds her girth well for how monsterous it is, however you just know she would look horrendous naked and sweating just from getting undressed. Imagine having to move her gut out of the way to get at her pussy. Imagine her breathlessly chugging a soda after 5 mins etc.

Don't enable fatties by telling them they're hot or trying to fuck them.

Oh fuck yes, some teenagers, who of course are taller than me, are on the local footballteam and think they are hot shit. Football is 99% cardio, they bench 45 kilos for 8 reps and think that's impressive.

Anyway, they made fun of me for doing sets of chinups, i did one set of 7 and 4 sets of 6, I'm building them up to 5 sets of 10 and then adding weight. they claimed that they cold do 20 easily

They could do 4, 6 and 5.

First day back after new years was quite something, like 15 women doing a class with the PT on this big piece of equipment I can only call a jungle gym. Doing a cycle around it, 2 minutes on each thing part. Part of it was picking up a 5kg medicine ball and chucking it on the ground, repeat.

Few fat kids, few skinny kids, few old guys. No one really got in any ones way. One old guy asked me if I knew the weight of the pre-weighted bars. I didn't know and just said that compared to the 20kg barbells their weight is probably pretty insignificant, just go by the plates on the bar and maybe add 5kg.

There was a new group in yesterday, I'm guessing their normal gym was closed (I'm at normie gym) because they are the first people but me I've seen deadlifting. One was trying for 230kg, I heard them over my headphones complaining about the pointless amount of plates the gym had. I was benching 80kg, but with all 10kg plates as they had already taken all 6 of the gyms 20's. Let them use my 10's in between sets, they were bros.


Also wore boxer shorts I got for Christmas and they ripped during my squat, sounded like I farted.
