Lame Orgasm Guy at Gym is Lame

Orgasm guy was at the gym today. He is very annoying. Every repetition of his "oh so intense" reverse crunches must be a mess in his pants. Don't be that guy (or girl - women are just as bad and possibly even worse).

Train hard, but train quietly.

My workout

1A) Close-grip Lockouts
1B) DB Chest supported row

2A) Pullups
2B) Cable external rotations

3) meathead arms (ez bar extensions and curls)

Now here's something that is NOT lame:

"Often, we beat ourselves up because we think we're not making progress. In almost every case, however, we are making tons of progress, we just haven't tracked it, and so we don't realize it." Jeff Smith, quoted in Dr. John
Berardi's "Body Fat Testing" manual from Precision Nutrition

Today's resource:

I've reported on what's cool in the Dec 2010 issue of MH + abs exercises + added 3 youtube vids here in this week's 7-day fat loss coaching call here:

=> Abdominal Exercises & MH Tips

And today's kick-butt mindset tip:

"Lighten up. Most of the stuff you are upset about isn't going to matter in the long run. In fact, most of it won't matter in a half hour." - Larry Winget

So stop arguing on the Internet and spend that time laughing and having with friends and family instead.

Have a strong weekend,

Workouts That Burn Fat At Home

I agree with you. I hate people who shriek and shout in the gym. Proper etiquette should be observed, regardless of where one is. Silent killers are more dangerous than grunting barbarians.

At least he is working out. Just an opportunity to let you know you aren't enlightened yet. Noise can just be noise.

Well, then why karate fighters scream everytime they throw a punch? It helps! I do it too when I push myself to the limit... Also, why others shouting at you encouraging words at a contest etc helps athlete? Anecdotal evidence but true..

It may look silly, but to hell with that if it helps lifting!

None of you guys get the point.

Ilana said...

the point is the guy is doing it for attention. he's not doing it to "get through" his tough workout he's doing it to try to look macho. am i right craig? reminds me to be thankful that i train strictly at home these days :)

craig is one of the least snobby, non holier-than-thou type of trainers out there. you guys must not read his blog very often if you think otherwise...
