the more I train, the less social I become. I feel like being in my own little world when I lift. anyone else feel like this?

Yeah I like to focus on my workout and not get sidetracked wth chatting. I used to see guys at my old gym who spent a lot more time yapping than lifting.

Hrmm, Topher you make a lot of sense. I mean a lot of people in the gym, like willpeavy said just yap around. What are you there for, to talk or to work out? It's only an hour in your day, and it should be for your body only. The only time I chat is prior to working out or if I am resting (which is less than a minute), and even then thats rare.

I just like to stare in the mirror, especially with a side view. I guess I like looking at the mirrors more than talking :P

yea, it's pretty gay to check mirrors but i do it to make sure my arms are moving in unison for dumb bell stuff....

i don't usually bother talking to anyone at the gym, don't even bother when they're aying dumb shit that's completely incorrect.

there is one born again christian type i like to fuck with though, just throwing his towel off the bench between sets and bumping him when he's pressing, that kinda stuff.

If I see a buddy of mine at the gym I'll chat with them for a few minutes, but we usually have our own things to do. I dont see friends at the gym often though.

i always train at home, or at my friends house (we both have squat cages and the like!) so training is generally a social event.
its cool like that though, as with power lifting you need bigger rests, so i just hang out and chat!

i think its very healthy that most of my socialising revolves around lifting (with about 4 different vegan lifters). most people socialise and get drunk - my plan is much healthier! 8)

I understand what your saying Topher because I've always been intence when working out! even the day before, I'm focused on what I gotta do, I would go to the gym workout and go! I wouldn't talk or even look at anybody! now when I work out i work out with my friend at his home that trains much heavier than I do! we have a fun time pushing each other to new hieghts and talking friendly competitive banter! and our time is never wasted, but recently I'm wanting to go underground and get some ultra serious work done! so I can see us getting more intence and talking more trash! :wink:

I work out alone, it's a meditation for me. It's a time to focus and train. When I'm working out, nothing else is on my mind but pushing up that iron.

That said, I really enjoyed working out at Jonathan's flat. I wish there were some cool vegan brothers around here to work out with occassionally. :(

My gym is like all others, in that it is full of people who stand around bullshitting more than lifting. There are a couple people I say hi to, and one guy I train with occassionally with much more experience than me. I do talk to him between sets, because we talk lifting and he usually has good pointers to help my form or routine.
