Re: Gym Social Norms
Don't try talking to people in the middle of their set! I had this fat guy come up and start talking to me about soccer, and he didn't even know anything about it! (This was before I started my set mind you) He was like, "Oh boy, I hope they get a break. They look really tired. I could never do that. Hopefully they get a break soon. Do they get a break soon?" And I was just like "I don't know man." So I start my set of seated curls. The guy is just standing there, probably 3 feet away (1 foot away if you include his stomach) watching me. Then he's like, "Gosh, you're strong. 100 pounds. Jeez louise. Hopefully you don't break your arms in half. That's what I did." I didn't say anything and he left. I think it's kinda like when you see a bear in the wild.. just be real still and don't make any noise.
