Sometimes I wonder what's the deal with people I see at the gym. They show up on a regular basis, but they really don't give much effort during their training. At times they are even there at 4 a.m. It really makes very little sense.
I see strange things all the time. They guy who comes into the gym at 4 a.m., heads straight to the bench press area and adds 10 lb. plates on either side of the bar. He then does a strange ritual where he lifts the bar, but slaps it against the guards on the bench. He sets the weight down and then reads his newspaper. Every so often he completes another set.
There is also the guy who comes to the gym every Saturday morning. He enters the power rack and loads the bar with a ton of weight. He unracks it, wobbles around because it is far too heavy for him, and then proceeds to do a 1/4 squat, grunting the entire way. What's that all about?
There are the people who come to the gym and then do nothing but body weight exercises. Why come all the way to the gym early in the morning to do what you could do at home?
It never ceases to amaze me the things you see when you go to the gym. If you take the time to look around the hilarity will ensue. It is a source for never ending comedy. I just don't get what that is all about. Do people think that the gym is just a great place to pass the time? Can't people think of better things to do with their time than waste it pretending to workout? Yes, I am glad people come to the gym, but come on…do something while you are there!
