Why are big commercial gyms so antisocial? Every other club encourages members to interact with each other; even crossfit gyms encourage camaraderie. But people (women) in big commercial gyms act like even the tinest interactions with someone is the same as brutal rape. Why is this?
Asking the wrong question.
The right question?
>Why are women allowed in gyms at all?
Allowing women to roam free is a mistake.
Because people especially zoomers get more antisocial at a rapid rate becaue of "social" media
literally blows my mind that gyms odn't have seating areas, like ur supposed to just be a retard between sets. what if ur sets are 5 or more minutes apart?
should have a central seating
and then isolated seating areas for betweens ets if u don't want to socialize in the central seating area.
the sating areas could al lhave table service too for drinks and snacks.
absolutely blows my mind that this doesn't exist
you can ad tvs and video game systems optional
alternatively, u should have cubicle=-like set ups where each station has thes ame equip (rack, barbell, kb, etc., books/refernce on lifting), and then semi or near ful private so you can focus. u can even combine the two aproachesin the same gym and let the customer choose which they prefer
Most gyms have centralized seating. In the front of the gym. Youre a selfish idiot if you really think you should be able to do a set, go to your "centralized seating area" for 5 minutes and come back to your barbell waiting for you untouched
Face it. The gym is a social place. The close proximity of all the equipment means you're going to get social interactions. If you want to be alone and take 10 minutes between sets to read and play video games. Either go to the gym at 2am or buy a home gym
u have to be 18 to post here
yeah if u take 5 minutes then your barbell should be untouched that's only crazy in your pathethic retard fucking trash pea brain fucking garbage heap
gyms weren't designed with the trainee in mind. they'e actualy the worst possible environment for serious lifting, that's a big reason why everyone is on steroids. because ud have to be on roids to make progress in the trash they call gyms today. what i described is a gym thats conducive to actual training and progress in a humane environment
>only 5 minutes
Let me guess youre a powerlifter
Also gyms are designed for the trainee. Having everything you need for a good workout in close proximity is better for you because now you don't need a huge facility to get a full workout. Only problem is that you have guys like you who nap between sets taking up all the barbells
>hehe le powershitter why u wait between sets
NTA, but this is the best way to reveal you don't actually lift.
I rest 1-8 minutes.
If it's a 1RM or AMRAP attempt, I will take the time I need. If it's heavy volume with 1-2RIR, I will absolutely wait for however long I need to not miss reps.
If I am doing curls, I usually superset antagonistically so it's 1-2 mins between each set. My training and rep ranges are more tilted towards bodybuilding than powerlifting.
Imagine waiting 8 whole minutes holy shit. I can literally run a mile while you're "resting"
I can also run a mile in 8 minutes, it's a dogshit time if you're actually into running. I am not and do cardio 1-2 times a month.
But I am not there paying for a membership for access to nice equipment for running x distance in y meters, I can do that outside for free.
I am there to lift x weight for y reps for z sets. Just admit already you bench sub 2pl8 and don't know what the fuck training for strength is. So sit back and enjoy watching me finish my sets :^)
Yup. Youre a powerlifter. It's ok we all laugh at you anyway. You can feel tough on the internet. Irl you're a fat clown
How heavy is your bodyweight bench?
180lbs, that is warmup
Delusional dyel wasting time on the internet in stead of learning how lifting works and applying it into work
An adult male weighs at least 200lbs.
>a fat adult male weighs at least 200lbs
An adult males weights at least 100kg
bro my weight has been between 60 and 65kg since I was in highschool and now I'm 25
Jesus Christ dude.
Even a gigamanlet should be 70kg.
Are by chance also someone that cannot comprehend waiting 5 mins in-between two sets?
Starting to think this board is 50% incel trolls posting whatever to get a rise, 20-30% interested but casual beginners and 10-20% who actually fucking lift at early intermediate level and beyond.
You have no idea how the world works. Gym owners aren't all multi millionaires who can just build whatever facility they need to build the adult day care that you want. It's a building with training equipment.
lol dimwit, what the hell are you even ranting about? Are you ok?
For most people, going to the gym is a chore they want to do quickly as possible and move on. Sitting around chatting is more appropriate for a pleasure time, like Friday night with your friends. You don't chat with strangers doing shopping or at the post office. You do your thing and skedaddle
Nice people start conversations with me. Typically older people. Older people, especially the rural ones, are lonely and like the little bit of company. It creates the feeling of community. Even younger rural people tend to be friendly. I'm in a small city in the Midwest. We try to be pleasant. It's nice. Some people think it's stupid, but we're all enjoying ourselves. Maybe I have a friendly face instead of a grumpy grimace.
that's what im saying so u do the cubicle gym
u walk into a ware house, and its a bunch of 'cubicles'. or divided individual rooms with full dooors and 9 foot walls, but no ceilings. inside each room is a power rack, a bench, everything u need, and books and references for lifting, and a comfy chair and whatever else u need to feel like ur at home. power hookups obviously
booked in 1 hour blocks, a maximum of 3 hours in a day, a max of three 3 hour sessions per week
that's the ultimate effective gym, where u go u have a homeg ym and privacy every time u go
for the other people that wnat he cafe exeprience, u basically have tables and sofas in the middle, like a coffe shop and the staions around that area. and between sets u sit or stand at your table, sip a machiato or whatever
then eople from the cubicles could come outside and order something a the bar too, like the bar would serve coffee, whey protein shakes
ultimately you could have a grill and the bar could serve burgers then u just go back to ur room and lift
>what if ur sets are 5 or more minutes apart?
Then you don't belong in the gym fatass
what?? what if ur lifting heavy are u retarded??
Are you German?
This sounds like a very German thing to want and demand
this, european detected
what you're describing is called "put a rack in your garage or basement, with a la-z-boy, xbox, and minifridge"
europeans really want to turn every possible venue they might visit into a full-service hostel because they live in a 200sqft "flat" rather than kick immigrants out and build a suburb
>drinking coffee while lifting
I don't think the staff will enjoy cleaning up the loose turds that start uncontrollably leaving my ass 10min after I drink coffee
>wait for my heart rate to drop back down to ~95-105bpm
>get accused of being a powershitter taking naps between sets
no wonder I see so many videos of zoomers disassembling their rotator cuffs diving into a dumbbell bench press after 5 seconds of rest
if you do cardio there's no fucking reason to try to exhaust yourself blasting through a heavy strength workout
it's not even that even if ur taking like 2 minutes between sets how come there is never even a chair?? u don't have to have cubicles, but whate about chairs so u can sit down between sets i don't get it. crazy
one gym i went to i had to pull up an unused flat bench to sit on between sets
Sit on the floor, retard.
that's so retarded then like 50 people are sitting on the floor?? think about what ur saying
More floor for me then, dickweed.
It's called a locker room
Just stand up for a few minutes you fat fuck
What's the problem, talk to people but don't be annoying or clingy. Basically just don't be socially retarded. I do it all the time, mostly with other men, but sometimes women.
I have never done manual labour but I imagine it's similar to a work site.
>hey, are you done with that?
>blabla yeah I like to do it this way, you do that eh interesting
>can I use this?
>hey bro, you need these? I am done
Don't need names, don't need your life bio, just dudes cooperating and trying to make it smooth and efficient, if you had a normal upbringing this sort of environment is natural and non-problematic.
maybe in america, everyone is super friendly in the gym I go to AND I WANT TO BE FUCKING LEFT ALONE
She is BUILT for the BWC!
There is a concerted effort to make the sexes, especially of European descent, hate, fear, and mistrust each other. Fraternization in such a sexually charged environment cannot be allowed. On the other hand, women should be as vain as possible, and men should constantly be distracted by sexuality. You see it on this site every day, and it amounts to diverted energy and control.
Imagine wearing that and then complaining about people staring. Those leggings are made for a single purpose and it's not to be functional gymwear.
>Come to the gym dressed in skin tight underwear
>Doing "exercises with your ass and pussy exposed to the world
>Titties fall out every time you bend over
>OMG STOP SEXUALIZING ME
I hate women so much it's insane.
I ordered the same pads she is using. I have to tell, since I have been wearing them in the gym, girls and guys break their necks looking at my butt.
>definitely would get arrested for stuffing a big dildo in your leggings and walking around exposing a big veiny plastic penis to every gym-goer
>somehow it's acceptable for women to stick jiggly plastic ass-pads into their contoured leggings with elastic in the seams so it looks like their asscrack is sucking their leggings inside them
Thats weird indeed. More than half of the female "fitness influencers" use these pads to make people think their routine got them that ass. But when I use a fake dildo and tell people my routine will get you a bigger penis I would get arrested.
