I’ve noticed one thing that being the skinny guy in the gym is good.
Yeah I’m one of my gyms skinny guys. Trust me I’m working on it but it is what it is.
Well, my new gym, excuse me, fitness center isn’t too bad. The typical gym goers are there (soccer moms, old ladies who definitely shouldn’t wear that, big dudes, the “know it all”, a few “talkers” and frat boys, and a few people who just might be t-men and t-vixens. The music definitely sucks but the weights are not touched much and brand new, it’s liveable.
Well I was in yesterday working upper body and it finally donned on me that being skinny gives me some advantages you bulkier guys don’t have.
1.) I never get asked for a spot even if I’m stronger than the person needing the spot, cause I don’t have 20 inch guns.
2.) The talkers don’t bug me about my routines, lifting form or any of that.
3.) I get to make people feel bad when I close grip bench what they make their workout body deadlift off them.
Sometimes being skinny is somewhat good, although I’d love to add the obligatory 10 extra pounds.
Sorta off topic and a rant,
