    felt like a total dick...

    i had to go workout in a different gym today but when i got there i found myself feeling like a dick as i was by far the smallest guy in the gym. Im 6 "ft, 205ish lbs 10% b/f maybe lower, and i just felt like i shouldnt be there like i didnt belong. I couldnt even workout, i had to go home. There was 1 guy that was looking at me as if i had no right to be in a gym, like i was stick thin. It really made me feel as if i wanted to stop right there and pack in bodybuilding, i dont know why, silly i guess :S.

    i actually can understand that. i can understand buff's post as well.

    ive felt that way on more then one occassion and my solution was to go to a less "body building gym" - ie golds. NOT THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH GOLDS OR ITS MEMBERS!!! but at the time i wanted to 'fit in' more and feel comfortable and it worked best for me.

    having said that - i think one just needs to say F IT and go where ever they please and enjoy it. f them if they are staring at you. use it as motivation. dont pay attention to others at the gym - do your own shit and get out.

    dont let guys like this intimidate you or make you feel uneasy. We all started off smaller before, and by the sounds of it you really arent that small at 205 and 10% so I dont know what he had to laugh about. From my past experiences, guys like this come across as dicks at first, but after they see your efforts and that you want to be bigger and are in this game just like them, they come around. And ususally guys like them become so into themselves and close minded that they eventually get to a point where they cant progress anymore because they refuse to listen.

    I agree,

    We all have to start somewhere.

    If it's a good gym they should be offering you any help they can, you're getting big and looking good is their best advertisement.

    Excellent point, clomid will do that to you all right. It will make you feel funny, like 130lb man could beat your ass or something. Gets me depressed and constantly analyzing myself. I'm on the shit right now and cant stand it!!!

    Yo man by no means did I mean to offend you with my post above. I just wanted u to realize how stupid u feeling like this is.

    Take this guys smirk, laugh , little girl fuking giggle, or whatever and let that shit motivate you even more to reach your goals.

    Guys like this have no life and like to think they are better than some people to make them feel good about themselves.

    Next time he has that cheesy ass grin on his face while looking at you, take a walk by him and say "sorry but im taken"....then wink at him and walk away. Make sure you have some sort of lightweight dumbell in your hands just in case he tries to get tough.

    If he does, smash that shit over his fat head. I bet he wont smirk at you anymore.

    Welcome to the jungle. Nothing like working out with a bunch of apes. That should motivate you.

    Didn't belong??? This is an individual lifestyle, who cares what someone thinks... I always have guys coming up to me and asking how much I bench. I tell them who the **** cares? I am not in a Power lifting met.

    Maybe you just came in all, chest puffed out billy bad ass(as you are use to that), then when you saw them looking you got all self conscious??? Maybe?

    Ah, the famous stupid question. This is what I normally say:

    Q. How much you Bench?
    A. Obviously more then you.

    that's is. that's all I say. If they persist, I say a lot..Done Deal..

    at 5'9 or so, 180, i can see where your commin from. i get those looks all the time. personally i just concentrate on doing my work and take pride in the fact that my body has treated me very well over the years and probably earned me a better living than most of those giants bodies ever will.

    You need a hug? Seriously...do you have a cock?? Freakin own your MAN hood and fvck what everyone else thinks. For all you know he could be thinking 'wow, he's in shape' or some shit. It's like your going to see that guy EVERY day of your life, and if you do...well deal with it. There ARE worse things.

    it happens to us all no matter how big we are. we see a guy 20 lbs smaller and in our head we say, damn, that dude is way bigger than me, when in reality, he's not close.

    I understand. But the key here is not to let it get to you, and to be PROACTIVE about it.

    wow.. you have some serious issues with self esteem and self image problems..

    Go look in the mirror, and if you don't think you look good.. no one else will..

    good luck..

    icedudez.......

    I understand where you're coming from brotha.

    As easy as it is to say 'who cares what others think', it's a different thing to be there and be one of the smallest guys on the floor. I've been there, and it feels like shit. But even though it feels like everyone is sizing you up, staring you down, etc....
    that's probably not the case; and if it is, **** em.

    Use that anger and channel those emotions into your workout next time

    Lol, getting all butthurt from someone giving you a dirty look? Are you taking estrogen? You gettin hot flashes sweetheart? Fill your empty sack with some balls! :P
    That guy was once a twig like you! So go back to the gym, and work out! And if you see him again.... let him stare because he's only ruining his own workout by concentrating on you. Of course he could be a little queer for ya... hehehe...that's why he's staring. Want me to beat that big bad man up?

    That whole scene is the worst!
    I vacation the same place every year and usually get a two week pass to a blood and guts place while I'm there.
    Man, the first time I walked in (wearing my cool baggy pants with the neon print) I was looked at like "who the hell is this Tard!?"

    The guys were speaking German, there was this weird disco crap playing over the stereo system and a couple of the girls (obviously competitors) were bigger than me!

    After about 10 minutes I decided that I was there to get a workout in, not to be popular, not to be liked, and not to be afraid of doing something for me.

    I've gone back three years in a row - now they just ask if my pants come with a volume control!

    Anyway, the point is; They'll come around if they see that you're serious and committed.
    Stick with it.

    Yea I know how you feel man. Going to the gym and feeling small is not a good feeling. Alot of this feeling has to do with a disease called "Dysmorphia". I admit that I have it and it makes you feel pretty shitty on certain days. Some days you go to the gym and feel fukin monstrous, but others you feel like you're small and puny. Alot of people will wear big shirts to cover it up. I myself like to wear tank tops. It's a strange disease and it effects alot of people especially bodybuilders. When i'm not on juice, I really feel small.

    I feel the same way sometimes when the genetically gifted guys come rolling in, but I know from watching them over the past year they haven't gained shit where as I put on weigh tlittle by little and they still do the same weight as they were doing a year ago. I'm making gains they aren't. Do what you love to do screw everyone else stay focused on your goals.
