So, first I respect someone saying "Oh shit, I got fucking huge. I need to do something about this." I don't respect that they let themselves get there in the first place.
So now that I have that out if the way. Why in the fuck do they sit on the hip abduction/adduction machines and not do cardio? If your muscles are buried under 100lbs of fat toning them won't help!
Second, and this just happened today and is mostly the reason for this post. If you are 100+ lbs overweight. Do not under any circumstances wear a shirt that says "Eat the weak". They are obviously full of calories. Consider a salad.
So let me get this straight, you are under the impression that you should dictating what people wear and with what slogans. Also, clearly your post screams "I know better than the fatties on the abduction/adductor machines" and they are doing it wrong. In that case why don't instead of criticizing like a douche, walk up to that person and offer your greater knowledge in losing fat. When they say no this will make me lose fat and get me jacked and I don't give a fuck what you think, you can post and we'll all have a laugh. Until then you are just another douche bag that feels superior to someone without knowing anything about the person and their situation.
I feel sorry for some people like this. It really irks me when these trainers have them doing all this dumb shit and the trainers joke with the person they are training. If those people are trying to turn their health around the trainer should be pushing them.
Maybe I should have just left it at that. It was really what I wanted to write about anyway. The rest was just ranting about another group and I suppose in hindsight could have been left out. Live and learn.
As a post script there are quite a few that I see regularly who are working their ass off (literally) and not only do I respect them but I make it a point to at least occasionally say something encouraging. I do respect doing something about it.
Its all good I understand what you mean, a lot of people don't really know what there doing when they first go into the gym. I certainly didn't and still don't feel like I know shit. But I respect anyone who has a good work ethic and will bust there ass in the gym.
Anyone with 85#+ to lose will drop a good 20 pounds just cutting back on the sear volume of food required and handle the hunger while starting with calisthenics. Most everyone knows the first two things they need to do to pull themselves out of a blubber body and that is eat less and be more active.
Simply put, this type of person will get results and benefit from just about anything because of their sever state.
