A while back there was a whole thread in this group about gym etiquette.

I got tired of waiting on the squat rack so i just started lifting at home. In a few months everyone will be getting rid of their new years resolution clutter.

Some people are just assholes. Unfortunately we can't do anything about them. However, this is usually why I stick to free weights.

What do you guys do/say when a guy is hogging a machine at the gym. Just talking to some one while resting for several minutes?

I did ask a guy If I could 'hop in there between sets', but he said "I'll get off when I'm done". I started to argue with him but walked away.

I'm 61 and extremely aggressive, in the past year I am doing all I can do chill.

When I was in my early twenties - feeling pretty confident and strong - I was traveling around Europe. In a post office somewhere I met an American who told me he was there for some type of wrestling/boxing tournament. This was in 1980 and it was probably the precursor to what is now mixed martial arts.  He didn't look like much, short in stature and not bulky muscles, but fit.   He said 'push me'. I hesitated and he said it again.  The man was a rock - immovable! It gave me a true perspective of what fitness should be about. Bulky biceps and bulging pecs are great - if they are surrounded with strong tendons ligaments and all the smaller muscles that keep us limber, fit, and able to enjoy multiple activities - not just look like we can.

Thanks Chuck. For FREE? I need to search more often. By the way, I'm a newbie as well. I just started lifting this August. I've never really cared about my body that much. I just like this manly website, and I thought it's too bad not many people are active.

Jay, I got a Trek 930 bike for free on Craigslist.  It's just a matter of keeping your eyes open.

Comment by Jay on November 13, 2013 at 9:20pm

Understood. Thanks for your inputs.

It wasn't a bike I found - it was a bike stand - I use my street bike - attach the back wheel to the stand and away I go - actually I go no where, just spinning wheels with resistance from the stand.

How did you get the bike from Craiglist? well that sounds stupid. But I am having trouble finding a cheap bike from Craiglist. It just seems too expensive here in US. I remember buying decent one for $30 from home town. Somethings here just isn't priced right.

How the loss of my father at 12 has changed my life.

I have had some good male role models, and some abusive ones too.I was hurt really bad by the death of my father.    I loved him a great deal.And being abused by  a few men in the family, it just made matters worse.I have had several great men in my life, and continue to have great male friends some older some younger.   I also help at a rehab for teenage boys.  As a teacher I make sure to pay attention to as much as I can concerning the well being of my students.  I also make sure the younger…See More
