Things not to do

Hey reader here is a short list of things not to do at the gym:

 

Bring a Coffee

So you’re a little tired in the morning but still want to get your workout in I get it but don’t bring your fast java place coffee to the gym. I have seen a few people do this carry around a hot cup of joe slurping on it like they are in the mall. Look, you’re at the gym to get it done and pound out a work out not gracefully walk around with a cup of coffee. The coffee container is likely to tip over and create a mess let alone you could burn somebody so use your head. (could always put it in a shaker) And if you’re not drinking it black all that added garbage prolly isn’t helping your lift….

 

Wearing work gloves

Ok we get it you saved some money and got leather work gloves instead of lifting gloves. To help you out why don’t you man up and bare hand it like the rest of us. Every serious lifter earns the callous on their hands that toughens you up. If you are going to look like the glove guy invest in some lifting gloves designed for gripping iron. Other wise the rest of us are looking at the huge tool walking around like  your going gardening.

Using everything at once

This is most people biggest pet peeve, somebody just running around using 5 things at once. It’s very understandable you could be crunched for time or most people trying to do some kinda huge super set. There are other people who go to your gym and they pay for a membership just as you do so if you leave a bench open for 10 minutes be courteous and let them use it. There are a few guys at my gym that think they are training for who knows what and do this all the time which usually starts a fight. So again use your head and think about what you are doing.

Creepy photography

You probably use your phone to play your music when you are at the gym but that doesn’t mean you need to take pictures. Many times I have caught guys taking pictures of girls squatting or what not. The gym is a place where people come work out and feel comfortable. Nobody wants you to take their picture for you to send it to your friends, because working out can be a very personal thing.

 

All right that is enough advice out of me or some might say a gripe session on what ticks me off a the gym. So share with your friends and stay healthy.

Make a plan

So you have been going through the motions going to the gym and not seeing many results and are wondering what am I doing wrong? What I can tell you the problem that I see with many people at the gym is that they have not direction at the gym and are wondering around aimlessly not really knowing what to do. The way you can solve this is by making yourself a workout plan.

Like building a house or putting your kids bike together you need to have some direction of what to do. View your body as that house you want to build and renovate what do you need to do? well with the age of the internet you can find just about anything you want to online. Different workouts, work out plans, and some may come with diet tips too.

When my buddies and I started gyming we hit Bodybuilding.com   and did our research . having a plan makes you more efficient and be able to crush a workout instead of surveying what everyone else is doing and wondering where you fit in.

Thats my tidbit for the day so get out there and reach your goal. If you like what you read share with your friends!

Proper Gym Wear

So at some point you may be thinking about joining a gym, or maybe you already belong to one. The question comes up what do I wear? So here are things that I noticed that come in handy.

When buying some gym cloths are choosing something to wear you need to find something comfortable. You are not going to be focused on doing your best and crushing a great workout if you are not feeling your best. if something is to tight or to loose you may also have an embarrassing accident or end up catching your cloths on something.

Don’t worry about name brand things when buying gym cloths. depending on what you are buying other than your sneakers you shouldn’t spend a ton on your gym cloths. The reason is you are going to beat them up sweat in them and pretty much destroy them. SO buying expensive stuff your going to end up trashing after a while isn’t worth it.

As I mentioned in the above paragraph do not skimp on your sneaks. The sneakers you buy should be quality. I personally went to the shoe store and tried on all kinds of sneakers to make sure I had a good pair that weren’t going to kill my feet. Another thing to consider is what you are going to be doing at the gym can determine what kinda sneakers you are going to want to purchase. So do your research and make a smart decision before buying the cute blue ones that are going to match that outfit.

Lastly something to consider is don’t dress outside your body type. I say this with love but I have always been a bigger guy myself and I don’t wear tiny tank tops thinking im some kinda lean hunk. But pay attention to what you are wearing because you could make your self look worse and other people feel uncomfortable. This also goes for the young ladies just wearing a sports bra to the gym, I have seen other ladies wonder and stare. So pay attention to the environment of the gym you are going to.

That is it for today’s service announcement. Please share with your friends.
