My Most Memorable Moments At The Gym!

Be prepared! The worst smell I have ever smelled at the gym was only a few days ago. I was leg pressing and their was some other guy doing the same next to me. Man, he was one stinky mug.

Most Embarrassing

The most embarrassing moment for me has to be when I was working out my abs with hanging leg raises. I was doing 3 sets of 15 and on my second set with about 3 reps left I went up slowly and by the time I got to the top of the exercise I let out a mean fart.

I was more embarrassed than sh*t. Some little kids were there with their dad behind me, and they were all saying "ewwww!" and plugging their noses. The dad was just standing there, looking at me - laughing. I'm very glad that they were the only people who saw me, but still for me it was still bad.

This exercise is a hard one if you don't train it correctly, correct form goes without saying. I originally wrote this article because I was sick and tired of 'Gym Rats' doing thousand upon thousands of crunches.

I quickly made my way out of the abs section 'cause God knows I hate being embarrassed, but in all I finished my workout, and it was a pretty good one to. But for the rest of the time I was there, I tried avoiding that guy and his kids - which made it hard for me to get to the equipment I wanted, but you have to do what you have to do.

I ended up having to pass that guy and his kids again. This time they didn't start laughing or even see me for that matter, 'cause I was basically sprinting past them. I hope that never happens again. In fact I know it won't, 'cause now when I do hanging leg raises, I am sure to not fart like I did that day.

Funniest People

All right, I actually have two people for this section. The first is some guy that I have only seen at my gym a few times but every time I saw him it made me start laughing. This guy has to be one of the fattest, most out-of-shape people I have ever seen. He seems to think that he's the buffest person to ever go to the gym, though.

Every time he finishes a set he stands in the mirror and flexs. He's all, "Yep, it looks like I'm getting my form back." Don't get me wrong, it's good to have self-confidence, but c'mon - you don't go to the gym two times and expect to be some huge, ripped guy.

The second person I have seen was some lady trying to get in shape. She was riding a stationary cycle and there were these other "advanced" looking guys riding next to her. But she was totally blowing them away!

I mean, here was this out-of-shape, a little heavy, lady going like three times as fast as these "advanced" guys. If you would have seen it, you would've laughed your @$$ off, too. It's like they say, "You can't judge a book by its cover."

Worst Sights & Smells

The worst sight I have ever seen at the gym has to be while I was heading toward the bathroom. On my way there, I passed this old, wrinkly, naked guy in the locker room. It was completely disgusting! He was bending over to put his shorts on, facing me, and I caught a glimpse of his you-know-what. I was about to throw up.

I never ever intended to look at it - it's just that while I was walking, he was in my way. Now, when I go to the locker room, I have to check to make sure that I don't have to see something like that again. Be prepared!

Gym Etiquette! Gym Etiquette!
Every once in a while you see obscure articles in the Bodybuilding mags where they raise a nagging finger and babble about do's and do not's in the gym.

Do us all a favor, just be sure that when you go to the gym that you put on some deodorant! For me it's a mandatory thing. That way, I know that I won't end up being that stinky guy!

Lots of things can happen at your gym. I am sure you all have your own stories. Who knows, maybe it's a reason to go?! Later.
