I got a gym membership yesterday and went into the gym for the first time in my life.

I got a gym membership yesterday and went into the gym for the first time in my life. I am so fricking weak and pathetic bros... I was using machines and had to put low weights on most. The hardest part is being a fat, weak frick surrounded by incredibly strong, fit people. When does it get easier? What are some tips on being a gym beginner you'd like to share? I'm 33 year old man, 240lbs 5'11 if you were going to ask.

      i have been laughed at by a moron who cant bench 2pl8 while deadlifting 2+1/2pl8 for sets of 15 (not bounced, yes i am insane). I kid you fricking not i have seen the homosexual yesterday *bouncing* 100kg ON BUMPERS for fives, i highly doubt he can even get 2 and a half pl8 off the ground.
      Fricking sissy was like "uhh do you have to do a set bro? i am feeling like doing some rows" and then was griping about my dl form like i dont pull more than twice his fricking max. Its honestly kind of absurd how dyels dont understand percentages like they will see you doing volume and then they will think that them doing triples with 10 kg more than what you are doing somehow makes them stronger, its not really 1:1 related to what i talked about earlier but i had to rant

        If someone even acts like they're going to speak to me in the gym I look at them like I'm going to kill them and they frick off.

      Keep in mind that just because someone is laughing, it doesn't mean they're looking at you. They could be lost in their mind just giggling to themselves.

        Not too long ago I decided to snap a pic of the gym crazy guy doing karate. When I put my phone down I realized there was a dyel on a pec machine directly between me and the crazy dude. He was looking right at me. I wanted to say something but I felt like acknowledging it is basically saying "yeah you're dyel but I think it's sad not funny." Maybe it will motivate him to get shredded.

    Don't worry about it, man. The weaker you start off, the more amazing you'll feel when you're strong. If you have the dedication to go regularly, the weights you can lift will jump up in a few months with your noob gains. Just make sure you're following a good diet and workout plan

    Wrong mentality. When you see people like that, you should think to yourself "I'm catching up to them." It's just a matter of sustained effort. The only failure that is unacceptable is quitting forever.

      Still the wrong mentality Black person. Stop paying so much attention to other people and focus on your lifts. Maybe then you will not be a b***h tit weak homosexual anymore eventually.

    Work on your diet. Get more proteins, and cut down on the bread pasta sugary drinks etc. Just autistically stick to the gym. Come even if you don't feel like it. If you can outlast all the new years resolutioners, you win.

    I'm 5'11, 220lbs, 36yr old. I started mid last year and I felt the same. The key is routine. The more you go the less you feel out of place and the better you feel and look. You should probably just try to observe and do cardio the first week. Try to research and get a game plan for a strength program. I started a Muscle and Strength program off their website and now I'm trying starting strength. Some days will be good and some not but the main thing is you are trying. Also, one thing I learned kind of hard is that proper form and safety is really important. Small injuries can mess you up for a few days or weeks and if you aren't using good form with heavy weight it can frick you up big time. But, again, if you routinely go to the gym with a plan you will slowly feel like you belong after about 2 to 3 weeks. Also, if you want to, you can always go and ask a big dude if you can watch how he does his exercise. Alot of people like us don't have any training and we have to learn by observation.

    Everyone started exactly where you are. And most of the people probably don’t care, they’re too focused on their lifts. Just go in there and give 100% every time and you’ll be jacked in no time

    Keep at it brother. These low weights are mostly a result of you not being coordinated enough to lift efficiently.
    Stay diligent, don't skip workouts and really do your best. You'll make super fast newbie gains as coordination then comes online.
    Take pictures of yourself. You'll appreciate being able to see the difference and results of that hard work.

    You're stronger than you were yesterday bro. Go every day. You can come crying and hate yourself but you go every fricking day. 3x a week lift weights 4x a week cardio, preferably rowing, stationary bike.
    Don't worry about the weight. Worry about the burn. Watch youtube for form. It's the most important thing. Try to find a friend to go to. Take a picture and then don't do the scale or another picture for 3 months. Ygmi

    Just make sure you do everything properly and you are set: no round back, no weird angles during pulls, shoulder blades squeezed, etc. Overall you need about 3 months to get used to it, and about 1 year to see the real difference where you actually impressed how better you look. Not perfect od course but much better compared to what you looked like before.

    Reading this thread made me feel really anxious because I suffer from the same thing, i'm 20 and 60-65kg skinnyfat. I will never go to the gym because I fear like this scenario will happen and I'll be laughed at by everyone

    Don’t worry about what weight you’re using. Focus on form, feel, and intensity. There’s no standardization for machines so what one machine says is a weight can be lighter or heavier on the same machine but a different brand. Just keep improving, and get that diet down to a lifestyle. Shit doesn’t happen overnight, so fall in love with the process and you’ll succeed.

    Unironically here is my advice, you’re doing a great job, last October I was 6’1, 220ish, and in 8 months I cut down to 175, now I’m about 185-190 but have added mostly muscle. I’ve been going to the gym for the past 6 months consistently and can now bench bodyweight

    I think it helped me to lose a lot of fat first, once I knew I had the dedication to lose the fat then I realized I had the dedication to start going to the gym consistently. I’m hoping to bench 2 plates by the time I graduate college (may). Also 2 apps that were extremely helpful for me were “lose it” for tracking calories/macros, and “rep count” for logging all my workouts.

    Best of luck and don’t get discouraged, just keep going

    I was skele mode instead of fat, but when I started I could curl a barbell with nothing on it. These first steps seem hard but if you are diligent and do what you need to do this time will be your fastest gains. Godspeed.

    It never gets easier. The day you decided to walk into that gym to try and get jacked is the day you were forever small. Tip if you're trying to get yolked at 33: good sleep, heavy protein diet, solid weight lift routine, ped's(steroids/test booster). Tip for getting healthy at 33: good sleep, clean diet cutting normal portions in half, solid weight lifting routine, CARDIO

      yeah it does the only people who don't believe this have never been fat and have never experienced fatbrain/fat induced self-esteem
      you literally feel superhuman after you're about 50% of your goal but that is just how normal people feel so it's new to fatties but it absolutely does get easier the closer you get to your goal

    If you stick with it and workout ~3 times a week, it takes probably two months until you feel and see first results "noob gains" which motivates and makes it easier every time. 6-10 months in people around you will start noticing and if you're lucky you'll get some normie comments 'did you lose weight?', 'bro you're jacked', 'you look good' etc. and from then on it's smooth sailing.
    You got this king.
