    I remember at a gym i used to go to a group of guys would talk about their new records on video games and stuff like that. Needless to say these were the same guys who just focused on arms and curled all the time.

    When I go to the gym I hear a lot of people reciting a lot of lyrics. Most of the time their recitations don't match up with the movement of their lips... maybe it's cause I have my ipod on and I'm not paying much attention to what other people in the gym are doing or saying.

    You're better off ignoring/not thinking about most people at the gym. The best word for the vast majority of them is foolish. My gym is quite fortunate in that it has a room set aside for powerlifting (and other stuff, like Olympic lifts). It's well equipped, and there are a number of very strong powerlifters, so you'd think there'd be more people who want to take advantage of the equipment and the knowledge of more experienced lifters. Not so much. There's still lots of idiots.

    The point is that people doing stupid stuff, and wasting their time is a fact of life. Unless you have a reason that it's your buisness it isn't something to be concerned about. Just go to the gym, train hard, and don't take it for granted when you meet people who actually know what they're talking about at the gym.

    Maybe you are just an idiot.

    How exactly does their conversation make them nimwits?

    Because they are discussing something you will never understand?

    call me crazy but i believe the gym is for exercise.some convo is fine but debating something scientific without doing a set for a half hour is hardly using your time wisely imo.















    were you the short guy or the one with glasses?

    I rather hear them have a productive conversation, then listen to you about how you got drunk and banged your sister.

    If it really bothered you why didn't you say anything?

    If you felt like they where wasting your time, time that you pay for, you should have said something.

    Instead you are bitching about it on an internet forum.

    you mad? it was funny to me to be honest.its similar to people cranking out curls for an hour.i just posted it in order to hear other peoples experiences, which is one of the purposes of a internet forum.you may leave the thread now if you have nothing further to contribute.

    Other people can say whatever they want as long as they don't use the rack for something stupid.

    You're free to find their chat ridiculous of course, but as long as it doesn't hinder your own lifting, you're probably better off listening to some music that motivates you and focus on what really matters.
