"Ego's" at the Gym Rant

"What up girl?"

It makes me shake my head when I see these younger men, mainly, but not always, “ego” training, as I like to call it. I’m not talking about experienced men and women training for a purpose. I mean these teens and younger men in the gym swinging weights around dangerously. Heavy benching, improper form curling, with their backs, and my personal favorite ¼ rep squats. Maybe they think they look cool, maybe they just aren’t aware. Guys, I’m here to tell you, you don’t look cool. You look like you’re going to get hurt. If there is someone bigger than you, and they’re doing lighter weight for the same reps as you, maybe, oh maybe, this should be a hint you’re over doing it. Put down the 50’s, grab the 20’s and contract the muscle you're intending to work. Stop competing you’re your buddies, who probably are doing the same thing, and start competing with yourself. I promise, if you use proper form, practice the movement regularly and use the proper weights for you, you will get stronger and grow. You will not if you keep jumping, humping, and swinging weights around like a monkey in heat. And while you’re at it, leave the girls alone. They don’t want to be bothered when they are working out. Why don’t you worry about training harder, getting bigger and leaner, so that way, they you make them want to come to you. Be confident and hard working, and all good things will come to you. Good luck out there, and as always, keep up the hard work.
