Stop procrastinating and begin your healthy life today!
I'm tired of getting up at 6 in the morning just to guarantee myself a spot because these zoomer hordes can't spend less than a full hour crowded around the bench
something i have noticed with the zoom generation is they go in way bigger packs. when i started you would have your rotating gym buddy that never kept with it and it would be a max of like 3 dudes. now these motherfuckers come in groups of 6-8. crazy. how do they expect to get any work done?
>how do they expect to get any work done?
they do not
Zoom-zooms don't actually go to the gym to get work done, they do it because it's the trendy thing to do on TikTok and they spend more time taking pictures and talking than actually doing any work.
Kind of like how women would travel to exotic places and do cool things not to actually soak it in and experience it, but to take pictures and show everyone they're doing it.
Or how the entire human race has wanted fashionable clothes since time immemorial, to present an image that they are cooler than they are
speak for yourself, zoomer
They literally don't, I constantly see groups of them where they'll all crowd around a bench, load 1pl8 on, the one big guy in the group will rep out like 12, one or two of them will also do that, then the big guy will put on more weight and none of the other dudes will be able to do it. They all try and maybe one of them 1RMs the weight. Then they all just fucking leave.
They don't actually lift, I hate it. Lanky gays just stand around and take up space. There's this one cunt that looks like the ugly mutt from Stranger Things that comes in with some of his gay buddies with ironic mullets and mustaches. He bumped into me once when I was doing lat pulls, , and I came dangerously to going supernova and committing a murder. I think he could tell because they stay far the fuck away from me now anytime we're in together. Roaming gays.
God, I hate zoomer guys with a burning passion. Awkward, braindead retards.
In my Gym in Germany you get zoomers with the most pathetic physiques, only a glimpse of first newbie gains, and they film themselves doing everything.
They also pose in the mirrors in the locker room. It is so fucking cringe. They have no gains, wtf are they filming themselves for and what the fuck is the point of posing.
I am advanced in my lifts and I have never fucking posed in a Gym mirror. The only ones who should are roid trannies checking their physiques for actual competition.
I've noticed this phenomenon but I figure a bunch of youngsters having a group of friends to hang out with in a place that's pretty safe and benign, not getting into trouble somewhere isn't all that bad of a thing. I just wish they were a little more focused when they're occupying an area I'd like to be moving because with 5-6 people in a group it takes them like an hour standing around chatting to each get their reps/sets completed.
Oh well, I don't hate zoomers. I see them as no less stupid and ridiculous than my generation...in fact I definitely despise other millennials a LOT more than I could ever hate zoomers. I just wish their retarded lingo was not the way it is. NO CAP NO CAP BUSSIN SENPAI. What? I don't even know what they're saying to each other. Yes, I'm aware millennials had their own stupid fucking phrasing and I've spent my life intentionally not using it.
lol i actually heard a zoomer use the word bussin unironically in conversation for the first time this weekend. i couldnt stop myself from laughing. weirdly enough even though im a millenial i can understand them perfectly because zoomers just talk like blacks did 15 years ago and i grew up around a lot of them
kek you mean it's not just a meme?
i don't live in the US thankfully but i can't imagine people talking like that
Everything about zoomers that you think is a meme is actually pure reality.
I am a zoomer and I don't understand this either. I will enter the gym, do my workout, and leave, and the same group of dudes will have been crowding around the bench that entire time. They're always DYELs too.
30yo boomer and I did this because I dragged all my friends to the gym with me but we only were a group of 4. Eventually everyone else stopped going but me. One guy does yoga and jump rope though.
This is literally every groups of zoomers at my gym
also a zoomer, hate this shit. I can’t use any fucking machine because a group of 3 people constantly have it blocked out.
They need to travel in packs to emotionally support each other. Not joking. Fatties and DYELs of yesteryear always complained that they were too intimidated to go to the gym. Well, zoomers found a solution.
Maybe gen alpha will figure out how to actually get some work done.
I am so glad I go to an old school sweatbox gym. Nobody is ever there, I can do fucking supersets for hours without anyone bothering me. I attribute my recent gains completely to the lack of interruption there
based and nuanced post
you underestimate the power of zoomers being influenced
give it another 5 months
if they haven't achieved abs by summer then they'll quit
goddamn i'm so glad i don't go to a chain box gym
Resolutioners are finally making it, this is the fucking year
I'm so proud of them
why would you quit when you can order PED slop from china that will make you blow up in less than a year? gym culture is ruined thanks to tiktok and zoomers
zoomers arent resolutioners, theyre following the fitness bandwagon that is raging through social media right now
the resolutioners at my gym are mostly gone already
last week, 4 zoom zooms took up both leg curl and extension machines at my gym. I went to use one since it had been 5 minutes since I saw anyone on it. A zoomer who had been talking with his buddy on a machine over came back and said “hey I’m using that”, told him didn’t look like it. He literally hopped back on it, did 2 reps and then said I’m done.
this, they’re going to be there for at least another year when Tik Tok programs their new fad.
>A zoomer who had been talking with his buddy on a machine over came back and said “hey I’m using that”
I hate cunts that do this
like I'm supposed to track what you and everyone else is doing in the gym
if you're using equipment, put something on it
Yeah, I always bring a jacket or sweatshirt to the gym from fall through early spring, wear it there and then just hang it over whatever I'm using to claim it. I went one time and there was a barbell rack, 100% deserted. My brother and I walk over and start putting weights on the empty bar and some 50 year old guy who looked like Hamid Karzai comes walking over and starts saying how he was still using it. I'm like hey man it was empty with nobody on it and he says "oh no no I was on it but you go ahead I guess" in a tone like he's fucking upset about it so I just say alright then and go about using it and he sort of huffs off like he's mad. How in the fuck am I supposed to know if he was there and walked away for 30 seconds without a single marker showing that it was taken? I don't understand people's thought process or lack thereof.
>noooooo it's fiiiiiiiine. If you need it tthhaaaaaaat bad, you can use it..............
Kek fuck that cunt. Weak people get no respect.
Tell them to piss off.
If they get mad and say you fuck you bitch
Are you ready to fight
I'm easily a head taller and 50bs heavier than the average gym broccoli head, of course.
But that's never going to happen because gym zoomers are too pussy to escalate that far. They'll just sheepishly look at the ground and give up the spot.
This guy gets it. Just asking them if you can work-in is enough to scare them away.
there is an old man at my gym that will use 3 different machines at the same time, we call him nazi because he is white and wear sunglasses. once he came over to me to ask how many sets i got left. i thought it was weird because i was doing leg curls and he was doing lateral raises with the dumbbells.
after a few minutes watching his behavior, i noticed he was doing lateral raises, lat pull down and calves at the same time. he went to different corners of the gym because these machines are far from each other, and he even complained to my friend when he went to train seeing that the machine was clearly "unoccupied"
>we call him nazi because he is white
Quo vadis, America?
>I'm using it
>cool, now we're using it
Don't even ask to work in, just tell them you're working in with them. They're so socially anxious they can't stand the idea of being close to someone they don't know so they'll be gone in no time.
I go super late every night and never see anyone except the regulars. Only time I've seen zoomers it was 5 of them rotating on the lat pulldown machine and clanging every rep.
In my gym the resolutioners are mostly gone, except for a few middle aged guys. Rooting for them
lol the change rooms were getting cleaned today when the zoomers got out of school(I assume, they all showed up at the same time) and they were lined up outside it, every one of them had that retarded poofy haircut that drops down over their forehead to hide their 17 year old premature balding
I'm a zoomer but I have no friends
the fucking gym zoomers started asking me tech questions again...
Any specific ones that come to mind?
They don't understand file structures. It's not a fucking meme, they're fucking stupid.
At least they lift.
too many touchscreens, iPhones made the world retarded
Zoomer in-law couldn't use Netflix because the app was broken. I asked if he could watch it in the browser. "What browser?" Chrome. Firefox. "You mean like Safari?" Yes. "You can do that?"
These Zoomers need a lot of help.
As a 23 year old, I don’t want to learn how tech works. That said, if I want to find out something, I go online, and I definitely don’t ask random people. gay millennials and their older bosses will not force me to become “tech-savvy” for the sole purpose of working.
shut the fuck up and take my order McWagie
Enjoy living on the streets once the only jobs you're qualified for end up automated.
That’s a good attitude to have at 23. Already decide for yourself you will put it no effort to learn relevant job skills that have a high payoff to effort ratio.
You certainly will go far in life. Enjoy hitting 33 and wondering why your peers have outpaced.
You'd be shocked how common this is. We hired 2 zoomers and their attitudes about everything are that the company should take care of it. They take no initiation and just get angry when they're told to learn something. One of them got fired for it
>I deserve a raise, I'm worth more than $15/hour
>you literally told me you refuse to learn anything new. Go mop up the puke or you're fired.
I teach college and it's absolutely astounding how retarded my students are about very basic computer use
I am now 29 and have been 'young and upcoming' in my industry for 7 years now. Why? They can't really hire people younger than me because many of them don't know how to use excel or save files to desktop, let alone anything more advanced required for daily work.
One guy spent 3 hours registering for an event because he fucked up the first step and didn't realise he could just open an incognito tab to not be 'logged in' on the websites system. Didn't understand what I meant when I told him to open up an incognito tab. Never heard of it.
Hire me, anon.
Fucking based. I'm 23 and work in IT, I hope it stays this way so I can advance. Call me a bucket crab, I don't give a fuck.
smart phone generation isn't used to setting up file trees to hide their porn and shit
I'm a zoomie and yeah half the guys are too retarded to do anything with tech.
They don't know how to even properly navigate the file system or set up programs. In high school senior year they were using replit and online IDEs to code instead of just bringing a USB loaded with Vscode portable. A terminal would blow their fucking minds kek, now I'm in uni and these guys don't even bother learning vim they just use nano for everything on the persistent work server
The choice between vim and nano is completely arbitrary though, Linus Torvalds won't suck your dick for using vim.
I often complete tasks in seconds with vim that would take *literally* days to complete in a 'traditional' text editor. The choice is not arbitrary at all.
I'm trans btw
is that a surpirse?they grew up with smartphones who do everything at the touch of the screen
>imagine not having a home gym
And that is why I'm up here and that is why you are down there.
I'll post my dick in your ass if you keep it up
UKanon here , our zoomers are copy and pasted from US ones.
I have a Puregym and literally a 'Zoomgym' on my doorstep yet I drive 25 minutes to the Hilton Health gym in the suburbs because zoomers can't drive there. Never saw a single person filming in there, never saw a single person under 20. Not much equipment but apart from weekends it's dead.
wtf is wrong with zoomers, even in sports they can't compete. Every sport is still dominated by some 35 yo boomer
tha's not a boomer you retard
For americans 35 years is considered a boomer because everybody's life expectancy decreased by around 20 years thanks to goyslop costing 2-5$.
Vast majority of this webpage is a millennial but americans saw funny "woah jack" memes about based boomers and like to associate with them.
you are a retard, in sports 35yo is considered a fucking relic, that's why I said boomer
average age in most sports is like 25-27. even early 30s is pretty fucking old. though the average old poster on fit who missed out on their teens and 20s will cope and tell you that they still got it and men age like fine wine.
yet zoomers can't compete in any sport, this is the shit I don't understand
That would involve trying and the prospect of losing to a better scares them too much.
it's missing a hoodie with hood up and over-the-ear headphones around the hood
and make sure to take the hoodie off and put it back on multiple times throughout your half-assed workout
>WAAAH WHY ARE BOOM2RS SO MEAN TO US WE ARE NOT LAZY AND ENTITLED YOU DONT EVEN KNOW US STOP JUDGIBG A WHOLE GENERATION YOU RUINED THE ECONOMY AND EVERYTHING
> HAHAHHAHAHA LE ZOOM ZOOM ARE GAY STUPID BROCCOLI HAIR THEY ARE ALL GAY AND TIK TOK CRINGE I WISH THEY ALL DIE GAHHAHA
theres actually only two generations, boomers and zoomers. you're either a boomer or zoomer.
I've thought about it a lot and I'd say both millennials and zoomers are about equally cringe. overwhelmingly lefty losers, too.
aw little zoom zoom upset 🙁
Who'd have thought that a group of people characterized by being entitled and self centered would grow into entitled self centered people.
The biggest difference being a millennial will shit post, a zoomer will burst into tears about their anxiety or ptsd from getting grounded that one time, and probably kill themselves.
pic is angle and light frauding. That mass is easy in 1 year
I'm 25 so not really a true zoomer nor a millenial
I hate all of you gays equally
>be group of zoomers at my gym, theres 7 of them all of varying strengths and sizes
>one of them is about 6'0" and actually in good shape, hes the Alpha of the pack
>two of then are like 6'4" but must weigh 140lbs
>two of them are average height and very scrawny
>one of them is the token black guy, hes in decent shape and has muscle but a bit small, would benefit from a bulk imo
>other is a fatass
>they all go around a bench, load up 1.5pl8
>Alpha zoomer gets about 8 reps
>one of the two lanklets just about get 1 rep but with Alpha zoomer helping get the bar up, other can manage to move the bar by an inch all by himself and counts that as a rep
>two average height scrawny zoomers can just about get one actual rep unassisted
>black guy manages about 5 reps
>fatass also just gets 1 rep
I dont get why zoomers always train this way, they're at different levels yet they insist on all using the same weight. They do this all the time, I dont get why the weaker ones dont take some weight off when it's their set
Because it’s the blind leading the blind if the „strongest“ guy can only do a 1 plate bench for reps. Even that guy has no concept of what progressive overload is.
Or, equally as likely, because they always go in packs of 4+ they are just too lazy to change weights all the time so they just get a shitty workout in with 135.
I think for many it's lack of knowledge. For others it's ego. Take my brother for example. I finally convinced him to lower the weight he was trying to bench because he wasn't doing even half the ROM he should. I'm his younger brother and am benching 225 so he thinks he should be doing 225 but I'm doing full ROM reps down to my chest and back up.
Last time we went I told him when he was finished his first set with rabbit reps to take a 45 plate off each side but do his reps slow and steady with a full ROM. He got through 12 reps and became tired. The next day he said how sore he was and he realized he wasn't even working his muscles at all the way he'd been cheating on it. I just want to help him catch up.
This reminds me of when I asked some guy to alternate on the squat rack a while back. He was half squatting like 40 kg at first and then I put 50 kgs to overhead press. I ask him if he wants me to take out the extra weight and he says it's fine to just leave it.
Goes and squats that weight barelly for like 5 half reps.
Then I put 60 kgs to squat, he squats that weight for like 2 half reps, finally I put 80 kgs in the bar he looks at it and just leaves lmao.
I wouldn't have lumped zoomers & resolutioners together. Resolutioners are mostly out of shape older people (I know because I am one)
This is me but I don't lose motivation and I don't drink redbulls or other shit monsters, as a matter of fact I'm working out and browse this gay board, I'm also 168cm and 53kg and started working out a year ago. Idgaf what anyone says, I'm having fun.
forgot to mention I also workout three times a week for an hour so I guess I'm still a "revolutionist" but less like described in op pic
>not having a home gym
unless you want to powerlift, a good pullup station + rings + some weights, a medium sized barbell and a sturdy backpack are enough to build a great bod or at least to get you started
going to the gym can be a real risk nowadays, not because you might drop a plate on your feet, but because some dumb tiktok thot might want to make a victim video on the same day you wanted to do a heavy workout and looked 0,5s more than you should in her direction
not to mention zoomie sarms goblins hogging bench and making you stay there way longer than you should
I used to love public gyms in the 2000s and 2010s, now I would never step into one.
my only complain is when the old fat ladies get off the cardio machines and use the benches to do press and shit with fucking 10 lbs; zoomers are ok, they tend to move the fuck away or at least are smart enough to take turns
here in beaner land ppl will finally leave the gym when the spring break holidays kick in
went to the gym this week and saw a fat zoomer helping out his bros learn how to bench press. they were all super skinny and benching 95lbs with the bar at a 45 degree angle. Then when the fat zoomer got on he did 225lbs with perfect form and no warm up. The only zoomer I've ever respected in the gym
I've been a proctor for some high school kids taking their finals and examinations and whatnot, and it's surprising how many of them don't know how to save files (just simple word documents) locally. They literally do not know how to save files on their computers.
Getting them to save something as a PDF was another thing entirely.
>They learn differently
I've seen them try all different ways. Truth is they don't learn period. Their shotty parents gave them tablets and phones to shut them up, and they missed all their developmental milestones. There is nothing you can do for them. They are stupid.
mostly zoomer stories in here so here's a recent boomer story I had:
>boomer follows me around the gym
>sets up and does exactly what exercise I'm doing
>always grabs slightly higher weight than me
>does horrible agonizing form with cheater reps
>avoids eye contact
>never says a word to me
>follows 45 minutes of my 3 hour routine and then goes to the spa
kind of felt he was based. would have been his friend.
Who the fuck has three hours of free time every day for the gym? Or even a few days a week?
I only go 6 days a week
Why would you need a spotter if you're only working arm
ITT: millenials who can't cope with the fact that they're old, ugly, sexless, irrelevant, and going to die soon kek
millennials are such a loser generation
>zoomers calling other generations 'sexless'
better check those stats chief
>cherry picked data
Go fuck yourself. Millennials truly are the worst generation of them all.
You’ll be doing the same in 10 years when gen alpha are having legal public sex and bullying you in the metaverse
I saw 2 zoomers deloading a bar. One was talking and not paying attention, the other one kept taking plates off. At the last plate he took a barbell to the chin
Haven't left yet because I'm gonna make it
OP’s picture is the kind of person who’s on IST using the word “powershitter” and calling anyone who’s not a weak twink, fat.
erm le zoomerinos are so hecking annoying with their moronino phraserinos am i right my fellow millennials thx for the reddit gold wholesome stranger
My zoomer step brother is absolutely fucking shredded, he's 17 and has autism. Visible abs, squats heavy and deadlifts heavy because I told him to. He's been lifting for a couple years now. Why can't they all be like this? I watched a pack of them doing fucking cleans with the worst form into OHP without clips on the bar, and the weight fell off multiple times. They were behind me while I was trying to squat. Another lot came and asked me if I was using the rack I had set up while I was taking a break, got all huffy and left the area. I haven't been able to use the calf machine or leg press for so fucking long
