Default You're a gym douchebag if...

..you train with any intensity. Brought to you by the influx of "things not to do in your gym" videos and articles and Planet Fitness. God forbid you train hard enough to grunt and grimace and lift heavy enough that you have a drop some weight once in awhile.

HERC and I already have a rough idea of what we'd do if the opportunity arose.

I believe I read a study where it did have a small positive effect on how much weight one lifted.

Generally videos on the topic seem to be focused on the poseurs and idiots. Like this guy we call TryHard at my school gym. He'll grunt so loud, you can see people getting weirded out and annoyed....but he's not moving anything significant. He grunting like it's music...over preacher curls. And if that isn't bad enough, on his relatively light preacher curls, he has to transverse the gym and find someone he knows (we try to avoid eye contact) to spot him. It's the most embarrassing thing I've done in a gym since I farted so terribly it emptied out half of my highschool gym (which was small, but that's how egg farts and squat cleans are).

I find it funny that Planet Fitness doesn't allow grunting or slamming of weights, yet they sponsor the Biggest Loser TV show which has non-stop yelling, grunting and slamming of equipment.

Sponsor fail.
