So, at 45 and after about 18 years,for a new year's resolution I've finally started back seriously lifting.Started at my condo's cheap ass broken bike, mismatched dumb bells and some crappy machines.But I stuck with it,saw some good results and said ok, I'm joining a gym. 18 years ago, I was the only guy in the basement of my YMCA doing freeweights (no heat, lots of mold, right beside the smelly old clothes lost and found-very handy), using cybergenics..everyone else up stairs on the nautilus with headbands and legwarmers, scared when I came upstairs to do calves. So I join the local fancy gym (no alternative where I am) and those same people have moved and followed me to this gym!Using the phone while you lift?
"Hey whatsup?...nothing, just lifting..."
And then keep on talkin while your nutsack is over my head?? Giving the entire club plot details to some dog ass movie pride and predjudice?
Guys jumping around doing handstands and then struttin their shit like it don't stink? And they keep picking music that just plain sucks.What is wrong with people? 2 months later and I'm a prick because I don't talk to anyone when I'm on the floor.Talk to me b4 or talk to me after but not when this old fart is just trying to squat my own weight w/o poppin a nut.
I might blow the payment and go back to the condo 'gym'. There are some guys who are freaks there and its great to just say hey to 'em, otherwise lead/follow or piss off. WTF!
