    11 Ways You Can Mess With People's Minds!

    Interested in playing mind games?

    (Try these little tricks next time you hit the gym )



    Going to the gym should be fun! Are you stuck in a rut? Try a few of these psychological mind games and enjoy the confusion of everyone around you. It's just like facing the wrong way in an elevator and looking at the other people instead of the ceiling or wall.

    [ 1 ]
    Fill an old vodka bottle with water and use it during a workout. People will wonder if that's "your secret weapon" to great results!

    [ 2 ]
    Wear a helmet. I think you'll find that people will give you a lot more room when you're lifting when you walk in with head protection (especially when you do overhead exercises!).

    [ 3 ]
    Pick up the 2-pound nose-itcher dumbbells and proceed to lift them like you're doing the hardest set in your life. Scream and strain like you're pushing it to the limit. The larger you are, the more effective this one will be.

    [ 4 ]
    Load a tremendous amount of weight onto the bench press bar, e.g. 500 to 600 pounds. Make a big production with your preparation, lie back on the bench, then, just as you are about to lift the bar off the rack, your watch alarm (previously set by you, of course) should go off. Look at your watch, shake your head, unload the bar then move onto your next exercise. The smaller you are, the more effective this one will be!

    [ 5 ]
    Do actual squats in the squat rack. Ya ... weird concept huh? You may have to wait for a few people to finish their barbell curls, dead lifts, bent-over rows, and the rest of their workout but the strange looks you get when you start squatting in the squat rack like its suppose to be used will be well worth it.

    [ 6 ]
    Wear an electric ab-training belt with an extension cord duct-taped to it. Plug yourself in just before each set.

    [ 7 ]
    Have your workout partner bring an old remote control from home. When he presses a button, do a rep. When he hits "fast forward" go faster. When he hits "pause" hold the weight where it is. Just make sure he doesn't hit the "eject" button, especially after a hard set!

    [ 8 ]
    Count your reps out loud starting from 100, e.g. your first rep, say "101", then "102", etc.

    [ 9 ]
    Bring a suitcase to the gym instead of a duffel bag. The little rolling ones with the pop-up handles are good. Also, a really huge one that you can fit a person comfortably in will work.

    [ 10 ]
    Do a set of Rolling Dumbbell One-Arm Handstand Push-Ups. Or Turkish Get-Ups. Or Triceps Extensions on the Leg Press Machine.

    [ 11 ]
    Use sandwich bags instead of workout gloves.


    I need to join a gym.

    Funny enough, those little 2 or 5 pounder dumbells can be excruciatingly hard to lift when used right

    I'm doing physio for my messed up shoulder and some of the exercises the therapist makes me do with the little 5 pounders are harder, more tireing and more painfull than most of my heavy gym routine...

    ps: for the helmet, make sure it's a foil helmet! gotta block out those government satelite mind control rays!

    Saw that had to reply. I especially like the Vodka bottle, the Ab-belt, and screaming with little weights (this would be especially effective if this one guy from my gym was there cause man is that dude a screamer). Too funny though, I am forwarding this one to my wife immediately. Mark

    What do you mean replace the vodka with water? You're suppose to not drink and drive they didn't say anything about drinking and lifting. haha

    I'm swear I'm doing the bottle one come Monday. I work out in our company gym so this should be a riot.

    I already wear the helmet, foil of course.........damn goverment!

    Sorry. But I would get my ass kicked if I did any of those in the gym. ANY
    Except the squat on the squat rack. That one might fly.
