We call that "Suitcase Syndrome" at my gym.

They walk around like they are carrying heavy suitcases and trying to balance them.

This thread for some reason has me observing people everytime I work out lol. Before this thread I could give two chits what people do. Two things that literally annoyed me tonight at the gym. First one was when I was in the bathroom this guy was taking a crap and walked out of the bathroom without washing his effing hands. Than I see him high fiving his buddies as he's picking up dumbbells

The second incident was this new year resolutioner guy tapped me on the shoulder and said something to me during the middle of my set. Because I had my headset on I couldn't hear what he said? I said "excuse me?" He said "why do you look so serious?" I said "cause I'm in the zone! I'm here to workout and not really chit chat." So he goes on and starts talking about random shit? So I try to be courteous and say "Cool!" but at the same time hoping he catches the hint when he sees me sliding my headphones back on. So annoying. Hopefully I didn't come off as a dick

I think we've reached the point in civilization where soap has existed for a long enough period of time that we start taking these people out back, seriously. We need to all start hollering at these people, make a scene, be a dick.. w/e but call them out on not washing their hands and call them disgusting animals. SHAAAAAAAME!

Thats all you need, i don't dap people up at the gym, probably because the only time I do interact with people is when I'm going heavy an need a spot. And the fist bump is the go to because when I'm going heavy i fucking look like a wreck by the end of the set and my palms are most likely either sweaty or beat to shit.

I've made it a habit to exit any public bathroom by using my elbow to push the door open. If it's a door where I have to pull it to open, I will use the paper towel that I just dried my hands with to grab the handle!

LOL....I hate when people come up to me during my workouts just to "talk". Now if they need a spot or something like that...I'm good. But if it's just to shoot the shit, I've actually asked people were they there to socialize or workout?

I'm at the age where I don't really care if I come across as a dick. Now if I am done with my workout, I will talk with you as long as you want especially if I know you. And I don't mind if newbies ask me questions. Most of that is shut down pretty quickly though as my answer to most of their questions is it's all about your diet. I will tell them that diet is a good 80% of any progress they could make, and they have to be consistent about it.

This tends to turn them away as they don't want to hear it. They want to come in, do a few sets with hardly any effort, the go and eat what they want and expect results.

That's why I gave up personal training a long time ago. People will lie to you and tell you they are doing something that they aren't.

I remember one guy I was working with, I told him I wanted him to log everything he was eating for at least 2-3 weeks along with his bodyweight. I told him that was the best way we could come up with where we needed to start his calorie intake based upon his goals. He didn't have the discipline to even do that.

Then you have the others who start a diet, and then ask about cheat meals or even cheat days while barely being 3 weeks in. I typically start my dieting for summer at no more than 12% B.F. And I will go at least 6 weeks before I even consider a re-feed. What really blows their minds are that you tell them that the leaner they are, the more re-feeds they actually need.

Your body likes homeostasis. It want's to stay right where it is. So it's a battle to make a permanent change and trick your body to getting where you want...especially the older you get. Then you have to "cement" those changes by staying that way for awhile.

Oh well....rant over!

^ No cheat meal for 3 weeks....6 weeks. Just kill me right now lmao. That said I never have wanted to do a strict diet. I'm still young so metabolism just munches up whatever I throw at it. Don't get me wrong I'm not eating bad foods, just a lot....a lottt of "good food". If I don't eat enough I'm usually flat in the gym/lack of energy, so I try to house whatever I can. I can stay relatively lean throughout the year, when summer starts to roll around I'll up the cardio and cut out all unnessesary snacking and that usually will do the trick. I stopped counting calories an macros awhile ago, at this point I eat to how my body feels.

*My typical workout is 10mins cardio, 10 mins abs, 50mins lifting, 10-30mins cardio. I'm hustling in there so I'm burning a boat load of calories, my garmin w/ HR tracker told me i burnt 765 cals during last nights workout. I think thats high, but probably helps me eat whatever I want.*

Problem on my end is I usually drink 1-2 nights a week. I've accepted that my progression will be slow based on my own decisions to delay myself, it is unfortuante though.

I see what you mean. I was once like that. I could eat whatever / whenever and have abs. In my 30's, the soda's had to go to get my abs to make an appearance, now I'm in my 40's and I have to make sure I'm in a legitimate deficit to get down to less than 8%.

But I'm not eating strictly. I can still eat in a deficit and enjoy stuff like pizza and the such if I plan for it. But I have to get 10% or below before I can add a real "Cheat Meal" in and it not affect my progress. By that I mean something like a buffet where I'm hurting when I walk away! LOL.

In the powerlifting and cross-fit thread, I put up some pics to show what I mean. At my heaviest, I'm eating close to 4,000 calories a day. In the pic from last summer, I think I was all the way down to around 2500 calories a day.

This last off-season I really pushed calories and tried to get my metabolism running as efficient as I could. I'm hoping by this summer, I will be just a lean while being a few lbs heavier than last summer...and I shouldn't have to drop below 2800 calories by the time I'm at the end of my diet.

Now my training partner is a genetic freak. He is my age and still eats whatever he wants. Plus he drinks his fill almost every weekend. But he still walks around pretty much as lean as shit at around 220lbs. And he's my height (5'7") so we are both short. If I can keep my weight in the 185-190lb range at that conditioning, I'm doing good.

I've seen people that can get big...but look "fluffy" and I have seen people that can get ripped, but be all of a 150 lbs. He's the first guy I've seen that can be big and lean at the same time without "chemical assistance". And I know he's telling the truth as he's a national competitor in his sport, and he is drug tested.

It amuses me that you guys have toilets that flush themselves, touch free water, soap and dryers, then when you want to leave the bathroom, you then have to touch one of the dirtiest germ infected items on the planet!

The funny part about touch free water is when they have 10 of them together and you wave your hand under all of them and none of them work

LOL just got home from the gym and the same thing happened. So it's your typical Monday packed as hell and this new guy is seated in the front where the dumbells are. He grabs a set of dumbells 25lbs, 30lbs, 35lbs, 40lbs, 45lbs and 50lbs all placed in front of him. Mind you it's Monday busy as shit and he took all these weights that now it's an inconvenience for everyone wanting to use the weights. Granted we have two sets of each weight but still. Not only that people had to walk completely around this guy because he blocked the walk path. Eventually a staff member had to talk to the guy and he had the nerve to give everyone around him the stink face

people should at least be aware of the fact that they're hogging the weights but this truly is too much to ask of people

I like to run circuits most of the time, where I use many stations/racks/weights. However I purposely go during times when there is normally no one there for this very reason. Very inconsiderate.
