Dude in the gym at the moment, loaded 60kg on the bar to do presses. Fair enough, did three sets of five I think push presses in about half an hour as he was too busy talking and texting on his phone to concentrate on what he's doing. Oh, and he abandoned the loaded bar as well. Now he's gone to the DB rack to do DB overheads I assume, after which he'll undoubtedly leave the DBs strewn across the gym.

Oh, and he's doing this whilst wearing what can only be described as luminous yellow gardening gloves.

To be honest mate, working at this gym has made me hate nearly everyone that comes here. Not everyone, there are some absolute legends and generally nice people. But way too many piss me off.

I wear those gloves when lifting. I feel like a superhero.

Just get a cape to go with them and you'll be set. I'll be disappointed if you're not geared out at your next comp/meet.

Let there be love for this thread! The real-gym experiences.

I have noticed a disturbing trend in my gym: the ever-shrinking shirt.

2 guys, 5'9", ~160 pounds (~20 years old). Both have plenty of definition, but very little muscle. In a T-shirt, you couldn't tell they worked out at all (in fact, they'd look rather skinny). Well, they wear shirts with the sleeves cut off...ok, a lot of guys do that. However, a terrifying metamorphosis is taking place. In subsequent weeks, the arm holes keep getting bigger and bigger. Soon, they could've put the shirt on through the arm holes. Last week, the arm holes were cut all the way down to the waist and all the way up to the neck. If this keeps up, the shirts will devolve into nothing more than a 1/2-inch ring of fabring around their necks with a shoe-string like thread running down the front and back. I stay away from them...I don't want my shirt to catch it.
