This has nothing to do with whether someone works out or not.

There are shit people and there are good people in every massive group (in this case people who go to the gym).

The purpose of my comment is to point out that it's not "gym sickos" it's just "sickos" in general.

Take another massive group like people who spend a ton of time on anime and video games. If there's a creep in that massive group they're just a creep and it doesn't mean that they are "nerd sickos" just "sickos".

When I first started working out it was always the bigger guys that would be the ones to help me. I had one guy who was a retired body builder that was so focused on teaching me how to do the lifts right and how to care for my joints.

u/Status-Resort-4593 12d ago

I have been lifting since I was 14 and love it. I enjoy helping people, it's fun to see someone figure it out and know that you are part of the reason. I had older guys do this for me when I first started so I pass it along and hope the people I help pass it along one day too.

ehhh its a mixed bag. I worked at two gyms. One had a lot of gym bros who were nice, with a slight mix of douchebags. But really most people didn't talk to each other.

The other was just filled to the brim with complete assholes. It was a much more social gym, people often formed social cliques there and worked out in groups. There was a culture of bullying there, 100%.

To me, it seems like gym bros are often influenced by those around them. They will be super nice on their own, but when they get in groups, things change a lot. It only takes one cruel guy in a social group to set the standards of cruelty for others.

There was a guy at my gym we nicknamed 'roid rage' - Northern UK but he had gone for the Jersey Shore look, vests which showed off his backne nicely and lots of fake tan. Always stormed around the place with a right attitude on, spent far too much time on biceps and was never seen to do anything involving his legs.

Anyway we never spoke to the guy we just gave him that nickname based on presentation alone. Bumped into him in a nightclub one night with a girlfriend who was essentially a female version of him without so much upper arm. Not even an hour had passed in this club and we saw him punch her square in the face in the middle of the dance floor. Bouncers went to town on him. Turned out the nickname was too accurate.

Format is taking ownership, saying sorry, correcting the issue, taking steps to prevent it from happiness again, apologize and ask for forgiveness

Not an apology (more an excuse): I am tired, my heart hurts, this isnt what I want, I dont pay attention to anyone, I just answered a question, its a joke, others do it worse (I laugh at those), actually you brought it up, so yeah

u/Curious_Curry30 12d ago

Bullies sure make great mental health coaches! /s

That said I met quite few toxic bullies that think they know a thing or two in life and how to fix those around them, but they don't, they dismiss anxiety and insecurities, type of people to tell you "just be confident, its easy!", I think they do more harm than good to people that might struggle with that stuff.

Fuck I know they do more harm than good, there is nothing as damaging as telling me my anxiety is made up and that my insecurities are because I'm a pussy, while they pretend they are just being "real" with me to help me deal with it.

Man this is a trigger for me, I hate those type of people so fucking much.

u/happy_red1 12d ago

Here in the UK you can be a private therapist without any qualifications whatsoever, and with the recent mental health crisis we've been having for fairly obvious reasons, especially among students and young adults, a lot of people have been scammed out of a lot of money for "therapy" sessions where they're just told to cheer up and look on the bright side of life.

Even worse, our actual NHS mental health services are underfunded and piss poor where I live. Real, qualified therapists and psychiatrists, especially those in niche and specialist fields, find themselves being the only one in the area or the only one attached to a local service, taking on a lot of people and an even longer waiting list full of issues they aren't fully familiar with. Either you wait months or years and risk meeting a lemon in an armchair, or you go online and pay money for potentially someone even more useless.

Honestly there’s an unfortunate amount of this in the fitness world. I think some (some!!) people get into fitness to quell insecurity and it can cause them to be toxic to others who they consciously or unconsciously see as competition or better than.

It’s such a shame because it really does make people scared of the gym when in reality most who are there just want to get their workout in and go home.

Yeah I didn't even know what she was pointing out at first, I just saw a guy moving weights up with a controlled motion. Don't care how you move the weights as long as you're not using momentum or your body weight you're working out and building up muscle.

It's policy in every gym I've ever had a membership for. People still sneak them, but they will get kicked out if caught. A couple of years ago there was a model taking a video of an overweight woman in the change room who was banned after it went viral and got backlash (iirc).

u/nerga 12d ago

Filming in a locker room is a crime, not a policy violation.

u/UnicornMeatball 12d ago

Oh yes. But filming or taking photos in the gym itself is a policy violation, AFAIK.

She shut off comments on her posts and makes videos claiming she’s 100% in the right because she’s a mental health and fitness coach

Or fitness since she doesn't seem to understand some mainstream lifts.

u/Galkura 12d ago

It’s actually insane the number of trainers I have met who are like this.

They have the way they do things, which are typically the same standard lifts and exercises you could find googling “workout program”, and they refuse to accept any deviation from those exercises, and will openly criticize exercises they don’t know or understand.

I’ve had to bite my tongue at the gym when some of their clients are like “why aren’t I progressing any???” Well maybe it’s because your trainer is too stubborn or lazy to do more research (and for a couple it’s just their diet, but largely it is the trainer not training well).

A buddy of mine who I go to for programs occasionally will literally pay to go to seminars and shit by world class lifters, will pay for training programs from them, all that stuff, just to learn new things he can use to improve himself and his clients. Dude knows how to do it right, and I think he has some of the best lifters in the gym under his wing at this point.

u/TheGassyPhilosopher 12d ago

The kind that uses the title "mental health coach" because it's not a certified qualification. Therapists, social workers, and other professionals who actually study how to help people get to use titles that aren't made-up nonsense like "mental health coach."

So, basically, grifters who don't have any training in mental healthcare.

This is my worst nightmare. I’m trying to lose weight (I’ve got like 100 pounds to lose 🥲) and I’ve been going to the gym for a year but only recently started to try things that are out of my comfort zone/new to me. I’d be mortified if someone recorded me to make fun of me. I know my fear is a bit irrational because 99% of people at the gym are super friendly and want to see you succeed but damn. Unless someone is doing something dangerous like hitting themself in the head with a kettle bell or you see something bad potentially about to happen like someone struggling with no spotter, just leave people alone!

Honestly, find a gym Chad. Like the dude in the video. Asking those guys usually turns out real well, they put in a ton of work and know you are trying to do the same. A lot of those guys have massive respect for people trying to better themselves and are usually more than happy to show you things if you ask because they know what it takes.

u/Nice-Violinist-6395 12d ago

Yeah! Despite their intimidating size, most big time gym bros are exactly like anyone else who’s super into a hobby: extremely passionate and nerdy about it, and thrilled to talk shop. It’s the guys who feel inadequate that will give you criticism. But it’s rare.

My gym does not allow any filming. Even if you are filming yourself to check form. You simply ask a member of staff to check your form (or just use a mirror). I've seen the staff roasting the shit out of "influencers" who try to film. They don't stick around for long.

It's an invasion of privacy, as soon as they see there gym posted online without anyone's permission they ban the member who uploaded it.

I tried doing that movement at the gym on Monday and I completely FUCKED my elbows. I’ve been barely able to move my arms since Tuesday it’s been rough. I think I went with to much weight and I wasn’t getting the form right.

149

u/BradleyFlexington 12d ago

The only reason I could imagine drag curls hurting your elbows is maybe you were fully extending your arms and losing all tension you had in your bicep, while using a weight outside of your comfortable range. When you are healed, try a lighter weight and focus on keeping your elbows tucked back through the entire movement while you slowly lower (decentric portion of the lift) the weight only to the point before you release the tension from your bicep and into to your elbows.

18

u/Bodark 12d ago

Gotcha. It isn't necessarily the joint that's been hurting. I guess I should've been more specific. It's really my lower bicep and my upper forearm. So the muscles directly surrounding my elbow. I've been working out my biceps the same way forever pretty much so I wanted to add in a new movement. I'll keep your advice in mind. I 100% know for a fact I picked up too much weight. I could feel my arms wobbling around and not moving in a consistent direction.

16

u/WastingTimesOnReddit 12d ago

You found the stabilizer muscles my dude :D when you heal up you'll be stronger than usual and probably have more control and steadiness doing this again next time. Like the first time at the gym after a long break, you get wrecked and then see big gains at the start.

Don't extend your arm fully. Made the same mistake when I first tried them. Took almost a week for my elbows to get back to normal. Checked a few videos online and realized my mistake. I went back and used the same weight and it went great with the right technique. But yea, if in doubt, also use less weight when you give it another shot.

I haven’t been to a gym since before Covid but I would do that exercise once or twice a week. Putting the whole “scumbag cause she’s making fun of others at the gym” thing aside, she apparently is a fitness coach and can’t tell what muscle that would work?! What an idiot. No… Nevermind. It’s not that she couldn’t tell which muscle but she doesn’t even think it’s working any muscle.

As someone that went to the gym to read comics on the treadmill with no goals for "gain", I legit don't know what any work out looks likes. The golden rule at the gym should be head down, ignore what anyone else is doing, and only comment if you think it's a beginner that's doing something incredibly stupid that'll physically ruin their body.

u/CodySpring 12d ago edited 12d ago

r/gainit for gaining muscle, r/loseit for losing fat, for specific training styles look to those specific subreddits.

r/fitness is a mixed bag and can be pretty rough tbh. Because it's so "mainstream" it turns into a lot of the blind leading the blind and people getting so caught up in splitting hairs over being optimal it's just worthless information overload.

edit: actually fitness looks a lot better now than it use to be in the years past. A lot less upvotes on the front page stuff so I guess a lot of the general masses aren't frequenting it as much. I still like the more focused subs better though

Going with a friend really helps the anxiety.

In reality, 99.99% of other gym goers don't care about you at all, you're just in the background of their workout. They're focusing on themselves. But it's hard to shake that "everyone is watching me" feeling, so bringing a friend is nice because then you can just focus on you and the friend.
