I feel your pain Waylander, I don’t even talk to my family about my training anymore because they just don’t get it.
I’m starting to get more into strongman shit and my bro-in-law rips on me all the time for it. Which is really annoying considering he is 350+ lbs.
Join the club. I come to websites like this BECAUSE there are few people around me I can even talk about this with on any serious level. Luckily I now train around a few serious people so that gives somewhat of an outlet.
That “warmed up with 400+lbs” comment was funny as hell.
I’m still trying to find some guys around here that I can train with, so far nothing. Luckily my wife understands why I do this.
It makes all of the difference in the world. I can’t bring this up at work. They are too busy asking more for the 1,000th time what I’m drinking and why I don’t eat solid food (simply because they see me drinking a protein shake at 10am…which obviously means I don’t eat solid food).
I know that in the gym, at least I am around more people like me.
Hell, I don’t even feel that on THIS site. How many people here actually stand out?[/quote]
You should tell them you are drinking mud because you derive your strength from the earth, insert other nonsense at your own discretion. If they belive it you need to report and take a picture, I can picture the look on someones face when they hear that. lol
