Worst fitness trends

What are some of the things you see in the fitness community that really bothers you.

For me, the whole peeing while deadlifting thing has never made any sense to me and is fucking disgusting. These disgusting primitive women always argue “the pelvic floor is weaker!! You don’t understand female anatomy!!!”. Shut up and wear a diaper if you have too. Women and people with little control over their badder have been deadlifting for decades and managed not to leave a damn puddle between their feet

      Millenials are the ones who started muh squats and muh deadlifts because they were obsessed with powershitting. Zoomers kept doing those lifts because they're genuinely great

        100000% this.

        It was already cringe enough when men were doing it, but women just took it to another level. Fitness Tiktok is full of titles like "when he dumps you and you rebuild the body he'll never touch again".

        The "survivor" related ones are the worse. A woman's idea of "life-shaping struggles" consist of regular pleb shit like breaking up w/ a lover, or getting fired from a job, or whatever. They just can't help but over-dramatize very normal aspects of their cushioned lives.

          Just another thing wom*n latched onto and ruined. Like autism. When I was young, being autistic meant you were an actual bang-your-head-on-the-desk window licking mong. Now having a minor personality quirk gets you an autism diagnosis. Or you can simply lie about it and call anyone who says you aren't "ableist".

    equating the feeling of difficulty of the exercise to gains. MUH COMPOUNDS LIFTS. how much you are feeling burning in your muscle has no relation to how much muscle its building, or else id have huge legs just from running.

        I'm not a competitive lifter but what the fuck is the difference between a 25kg plate and a 25kg plate that costs twice as much?

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          The more expensive ones are generally more accurate and consistent in their weight.
          Cheaper ones can differ up to one or two kilos.

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          One 25kg plate weighs 24.2-25.8kg and the other is exactly 25kg.

          In a homegym you can measure all plates on a scale so you don't end up with one side much heavier than the other but in a public gym this can be an issue.

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Because a cheap 25kg plate might not actually be 25kg but 25.4 or 24.5 or whatever
          Those high end, expensive plates are calibrated to like 50 grams or so

          For weightlifting, cheap bars don't spin right and it will feel quite different lifting on a real bar. Also, cheap plates are often wider than competition plates which changes the way the bar whips in the clean & jerk. The cheap wide plates are significantly easier to whip and if you are used to that it can throw off your dip timing.

    I don't get why every dyel wears "fitness" clothing. It's not cheap and it doesn't help whatever you're doing in the gym. I dress with unironic ripped shirts, some cheap gym shorts, and some fucking old slippers and I out lift most people as a skinny dyel myself. Maybe it's a shift from the gym being a place to workout to a place to socialize and pick up members of your preferred sex.

    There’s these indian kids that are always at the gym at the same time as me and they’re annoying as fuck.
    They’re actually probably close to my age (but you know, pajeet genetics), and the tallest one is maybe a solid 5’5. They half-ass some meme exercises they probably saw in a Athcheat-X video and spend the remainder of their “workout” flexing their 11 inch burnt noodle arms in the mirror.
    There was this one time they decided to bring in boxing gloves and some pads, and this was like watching some freak midget boxing tournament or something. The gloves looked comically large on each of them and probably almost reached their elbows. I couldn’t stop laughing.

      I workout in my office gym, which is at a big tech company. The facilities are pretty nice but there's this group of pajeets who use the gym every day and completely ruin the place for everyone. The putrid odor that emanates from their pajeet pores sticks in the air like a hot summer day, and they stand around doing the same shitty arm exercises every day. They're all hilariously unathletic too. Also they creep out the cute Russian and Chinese engineers by staring at them. The Indians that actually grew up in this country are cool tho, and know how to use deodorant

    Women peeing during deadlift is god's greatest gift. Urinating like a dog, lol. It humiliates them and shows them their place while also providing us all with scat. It's wonderful, I love it.
