I have Never agreed with a post so much
I swear I’m just going to go into the store and buy groceries. I would have helped you load your stuff before you looked at me and decided to take the detour of all detours to get to your expensive European sedan.
Your assumptions are terrible. I hope you learn that we’re not all threats out here.
Minus all the videos, stickers and flyers
Most of these rappers are compulsive liars
What is “Music to lift everything at the gym to” for 2000, Alex?
I can’t answer for everyone, but that’s a terrible assumption to make. There are a lot of people out there that get painted as “gym bullies” or “meatheads” - but have you ever talked to us? Or asked for help? Yes - there are those assholes that think that the dumbbell rack is all theirs and they can do as they see fit. Or the gym bros that think that every woman in the gym is an invite to “correct their form”.
We’re not fans of either of those groups. But we get lumped in with those guys.
Yeah, I chalk heavy. But I’m deadlifting 300+ pounds and don’t want to compromise my grip.
Yeah, I wear loud gym gear. It’s because I really don’t care how I look. Nothing really matches anyway.
Yeah, I’m a grunter and a yeller. Because I’m establishing PR’s and getting stronger every workout.
But I’m more than happy to share stuff. To spot random strangers. To make sure people don’t die squatting. Most people that are serious about training will do these things. The gym isn’t a nightclub for us. Nor is it a coffee shop. It’s a place to make yourself better and to help others along the way. Because we were all there. We all started somewhere. Not a single one of us started out super fit or muscular. People helped me, so I want to help others gain that confidence to keep on keepin’ on. A lot of people that I’ve met feel the same way.
I lift heavy. I look scary when I do it. But I, and others like me, aren’t going to bite your head off if you ask for help. We’re not going to look at you in disdain if you use something that we normally use. Yes, there will be gym assholes. I know that. I hope people that start working out never run into them. But everyone that lifts heavy isn’t an asshole. I’m more than happy to take my headphones out and help you. All you have to do is ask. If all you do is see a big guy or gal and assume that we’re all terrible people because of a snap judgement, then you’re part of the problem.
All I personally ask you not to do is curl in the squat rack. Squat racks are for squatting.
I let my anger get the best of me today. Probably shouldn’t have reacted like that.
But to send a grown man running out of the gym is such a blissful feeling. Especially when he deserves it.
