Yes Topher, I have seen you in your own world at the gym.

At different times of my life I have been very much in my own world, focused and did not talk to anyone. I just trained hardcore and that was that. Now….as Topher has seen, I socialize quite a bit. I know everyone at the gym, they are the only friends I get to see because the rest of my life is so busy and doesn't allow room for social events.

I still train hard, I'm still focused, and I still achieve great results (maybe recently the best shape of my life). I still go back and forth and sometimes so I'll stick to myself and quietly do my own thing. Other times I'm quite social, loud and have fun. That "fun" aspect actually helps my pump, it gets me excited and makes the workout even more enjoyable. The quiet ones in my own world are great too.

I try not to bother others. I would never pick on someone or tease them. That is not nice. Sometimes I chat with Big Ben for long periods but I try not to interrupt his workout.

We should also watch the usage of the f-word in this thread. I'm noticing it quite a bit on the site lately and I like to try to keep it at a minimum so we don't offend people. Maybe use these instead: #$^&%@Q*^

Thanks,

Robert

Topher, you are in your own little world. But yes, I do know what you mean. Just not with lifting. Different things.

I think of the gym as my ME time. I like to have a workout buddy to get me motivated to go, but once I'm there I zone out and do my thing. Especially cardio work outs. I get some of my best thinking done when I"m doing cardio

Hey Tyler,

No worries man....I just noticed site-wide there had been quite a few f-bombs lately. I'm just a little more sensitive because I gotta lookout for everyone here to make sure nobody gets offended by some of the language that we can avoid using.

You can also ask Megan, Topher and Kourtney, I'm also just a little more sensitive in general....I think it comes from working with children for 10 years. Even the violence in Disney movies bothers me :P

Imagine how I feel about violence toward animals :cry:

But yeah, cool man, we'll just focus a little more on keepin it clean around here.

Parents, kids, etc. all check out the forum for advice.

-Robertito

@#$ you man! You can't tell me what to !@#$ing say! :lol:

Okay, just kidding.

There is a funny spot that runs on my gym's monitors asking people not to use profanity. The cartoon guy is telling people what words not to say, but each word gets bleeped by things like a passing elephant, train etc. Then he says "there's one more, I can't remember it right now", then he looks up and there is a safe falling on his head and he says "ah..." and the safe falls on his head. :D

ahahaha yes this is true.

I just noticed I prefer to just do my own lil thing. robert sees it....when I decide to be left alone and lift, I let him know Im gonna go workout a few sets by myself, and its no biggie. In fact the gym used to be a social gathering place for me. I would lift and talk to all my old friends and hang out and stuff. but now I find the gym is more of a release for me, and that when I talk to others, I completely lose focus of what I am feeling, and therefore it stays bottled up.

no disrespect to those who do socialize and lift. i just wanted to see if I was the only one who likes his solitude.

and yeh hobson, lifting with everyone in jonathans flat was awesome!

and to robert: sorry i drop the F word a lot. I am notorious for cursing for no reason
