Rant on Gym Questions

I was at the gym the other day and this dude comes up to me right between my sets and asks “dude how much can you bench” I tolf him my max is 325lbs. Then he asks “How much do you weigh” and I stated 190lbs. While this little punk is asking me this shit i try to be respestful while he is messing up my time between reps.

He goes on to state he is going to the police academy and has to bench 93% of his body weight which is a weakly 173lbs. i ask him whats ur 1 rep max now dipshit states 110lbs. I almost bent over laughing when he told me this. Then more questions come.

He states that he needs to increase his bench in 1 month from 110 to 173. Holyshit are u fucking kidding me. I ask what do u do for bench. he states the smith machine. What a jackass that does not no shit about lifting. I hate jackasses that think having a strong bench is easy. What do they think you just lift one day and wake up the next benching heavy weight. Hell no they do not realize the hardwork and determination that goes in to what we do.

Meanwhile I was nice to the little punk but really I just wanted to rip his head off and shit down his throat. I pretty much told him to eat like a horse and and go heavy weight for reps of 5-8. I also stated he was probably shit out of luck unless he wanted to juice. Anyways sorry for the ramble but I had to vent.

very smooth man very smooth.

How do you manage to make it though life with stress like that?!?! I know when people ask me what my name is, I just lose it! My name?! Who the fuck are you to ask me my name?!?! What’s your name?!! Props to you for keep you cool man. You are totally hardscore.

You have a very strong bench. It shows hard work and determination. Something someone asked you for help, but you weren’t helpful.

Is there anything missing from my summary.

I wonder if the other guy is posting on a forum somewhere…

He is the troll that is never funny, no matter how hard he tries. He basically failed at being a failure on this site, badly.

so i was at the gym gettin ready for my police academy fitness test and i saw this guy who was benching a whole lot. well i’m not too good the weights so i thought i’d ask him for some help.

i was kind of intimidated because i’m new to lifting but i’m really motivated. so i thought i’d break the ice by asking him how much he benched. he replied “325 YOU WEAKLING!! WHY DO YOU PESTER KING BENCHALOT WHILEST HES GETTING SWOLLE-ER?!?!”.

I responded, “well, i just noticed you were really strong and i was hoping you could help me get my bench up so i can pass the police academy fitness test. I need to bench 93% of my body weight and i’m stuck at 110 lbs. I really need to get up to 173 so i can get the job so my mom can get her heart transplant.”

well this guy just blew me off, i think the caught teh ghey… but anyways. my mom died. but man, that dude sure was cool.

fin.

That’s pretty much how I imagine it going down. Except in my version, he needs the job to save the orphanage.

yeah… that’s a pretty good one too.

wish i was that cool tho.

Basically I just hate when people bother me when I am trying to stay focused at the gym. I know some of you can relate unless you think going to the gym is a social activity.

Not me. I’d let it get to my head, and end up being a huge douchebag.

Really I just hate when people ask me questions when I am trying to stay focused during my workout. i am sure some of u can relate unless you go to the gym for social hour.

yeah but i’m not really a douche about it. i mean apparently the guy is out of his element. we were (some still are) all at that point.

yeah I can see ur point. I just think interrupting someone during their workout is disrespectful. My point was during workouts I hate getting asked questions. outside of the gym I wouldnt mind answering some questions.

if you see that guy again i would definately recommend you tell him to get with AFTER your workout and explain to him a lot of the time ppl dont wanna be distracted from their focus at the moment.

some people honestly just dont know.

Besides, if he is completely untrained, he may very well be able to make the numbers he needs. Neural adaptation is amazing.
