>>35750425 I threw up at the YMCA after going way too hard on some lower back raises with a plate. Woke up to some 60 year old leather bag of a woman telling me that the blood of christ was going to wash away the demons.

After that I thought I would be too embarrassed to ever show my face again but I resisted the urge to quit. Now I'm 19 and lifting an acceptable amount. I think the owner of the gym is still surprised I stuck with it.

ive definitely had days where my routine followed people around for 4 or 5 exercises too, but i still think getting shot down for a spot was the most awkward shit ive ever experienced at the gym.

Not really embarrassing for me but embarrassing none the less

I feel pretty bad for yelling at her but how oblivious can you get? Did she not wonder why the peg she was pulling the weight off was moving?
>squatting, skelly wants to work in >he's doing 1pl8 front squat, whatever >wait, why's he wrapping straps around the bar? >he's front squatting not holding the bar, he's holding the straps he attached to it and dangling the bar >straps obviously slip, no grip >bar flips sideways, kid hit in face with plate >he awkwardly puts the bar back and leaves
First time in a gym in a couple years... I literally passed out on the floor. I sat down, and then apparently just fell forward onto my face. I must not have been out for very long because nobody even noticed.

And that's the only time I ever talked to anyone in my gym.
>got under the bar >took one last look in the mirror >notice that I completely forgot to add weight on one side >chuckle "close one" to myself and go to correct my mistake >gym regular runs up to me >"Glad you noticed, was watching in horror from across the gym, thinking to myself 'this is it, this is how he dies'." >talk some shit with the dude, then continue my workout Now I pay more attention to the shit I'm doing.
Other stuff I've done due to not paying attention, includes >removing 45's from bar >forgetting the 10 that was on there as well >the 10 falls to the ground >proceeds to take a tour of the gym >almost rolling into several people >"Heads up, got a rouge 10!" >catch up with the fucker on the other side of the gym
>>35752700 I know that feel mane. Was going for a single on ohp, forgot to breathe in before lift, decided "fuck it, i can do this", complete lift, drop bar, collapse into wall, barely dodge plate rack, lay on floor flailing arms weirdly, couldnt control them
>be britbong >in the gym doing my routine >literally indian drawf comes and stands right infront of me as i'm deadlifting (standing in cia man pose infront of me blank faced) >think wtf but continue the set out >put the weight down >he shouts "Yo Jamie whats up mate ?" >"eeeehh not much man how you getting on ?" >thinking who the fuck is this and how does he know my name >"You're looking massive these days mate!" >"haha yeh thanks man" >"well good to see you mate keep it up eh"
He pretty much says this same set of lines every time i see him, i try to change it but it doesnt work. I have no idea who he is or how he knows my name
>>35751396 >be old lady >be toning up for the summer >wander into the freeweight area >grandson is always muttering about compound exercises, let's give them a go >some red faced chap is pacing around in circles, very sweaty >loads up 30kg on one side of a barbell and 20kg on another >gets under it, 10kg on the floor next to him >he's so focused, doesn't notice >he'll figure it out >goes to lift the weight, is audibly confused >i pick up the weight to hand it to him >he looks around >sees me holding the weight >screams something unintelligible, i manage to pick out "gains goblin" and "skelly" >get frightened cuz old lady >run and hide behind cardio machines
i swear that's the last time i lift at planet fitness
>>35750425 >Go on a trip to the beach >There is a gym near the house I'm staying at >Get a new friend that lives there to join me >Gym is fucking packed, huge dudes and qts everywhere >My friend never lifted before so I explain him how to squat with proper form >Let him do his sets first to watch and correct him if needed also check out the girl with a big ass squatting nearby >My turn to go, load in my weights and decide to put some extra, since I've been having a pretty easy time with my current >Decide to try to low bar it even though I never done it before >Get down, lose balance and fall flat on my ass while dropping all my weights >Big dudes come to help, girls look terrified and my friend is laughing. >Get up, unload some weight. Finish my set.
That was the longest workout in my life, weirdly enough my friend said that after I fell and he laughed a lot his nervousness about being in the gym went away and he started to feel less uncomfortable in it.
I spent the rest of my vacation lifting there with my friend and even talked to some of the big dudes there. They were super friendly about my accident a shared a lot of their gym fuck ups with me.
>>35754824 >Implying I said 80kg was hard >Implying you wouldn't be surprised if the weight on one side just became 33% lighter >Implying taking a plate off of someone's barbell is an easy mistake to make >Implying you're not an aspie skelly
>>35750425 >go back to gym after year and a half of physio >don't know anyone there >still managed to keep a fair amount of upper body muscle, but legs were fucked >struggle even getting back to body weight squats >hear some faggot giggling about leg day

>>35750425 Not me but I've seen a bunch of NYRs doing the newfag shuffle where they just watch the strongest lifters in the gym and then try to copy that routine but with baby weights. Other than that saying "y-you too" to the receptionist when she tells me to have a nice workout.
> Just started gym, skelly mode > Got 60kg squat but powerfat guy tells me Im not going ass to grass > try going ass to grass, fail miserably > girls behind me squatting 80 kgs ass to grass > feel them judging me mfw
Passing out This was way back When I weighed a buck 90 at least There was no time for "look out" I just staggered and tried to grab some racks but I was on my back wondering the fuck happened. Help. Please?
>be me >at the gym doing some deadlifts >just lifting my 400 lbs bar from the ground while screaming and gasping(pretty usual cause heavy ass weights to me) > some guy about 30's mirin me cause I'm outlifting the shit out of him >Dat mirin face tho >btw I'm 18

>Hurt my shoulder pretty bad a while back >Pull ups where an absolute off limits pain >Heal up, hit everything like the old days. lift heavy, dumbbells starting to get as heavy as they used to, ect >Get to the pull up bar. My straight up nemesis >No ones around so I take my time.

Busy gym, some people looking at what the noise is. >Big scene as I'm trying to warm up >Nervous, try and bust out my pull ups full on >Get 3 before the pain in my arm drops me.
Holy fuck that was embarrassing. Anything I could have said then would have looked like excuses. Just thanked them for the support and moved on.
>>35758769 Same situation bro, super fucking out of shape and weak as fuck.
Started out at 210 6ft 1". I went for a little while and it was very fucking awkward and embarrassing. There's only a tiny ass free weight section, and it's always a bunch of huge ass roided up dudes.
Got a friend who was a personal trainer show me proper form, and bought some stuff for home. Still can't lift worth a shit, but i'm getting a bit better. At 100lb squat (could probably do more, but waiting on some safeties before i get carried away), 70lb OHP, 70lb barbell curl and my highest 5 rep deadlift has been 250lb.
Anyway, what i'm getting at is i know those feels. Sucks. I took the pussy way out, by doing it in the comfort of my home.
