    Is this guaranteed to make you as happy and well-adjusted as Kafka?

    It was an accident mate, not a fit of pique!

    Ah right... thought you had one of your famous rage attacks and hulked out, smashed everything up, threw the medicine ball through the window and stormed out shouting fuck you to everyone.

    This is how I imagine everyone at the gym.

    The only ppl anyone pays attention to at the gym are the loud attention drawing dickheads who drop weights on the floor and scream like they're rambo.

    You've also got to remember that a fair few ppl in the gym were probably not in good shape when they started. So they're not just a bunch of meathead jocks. I was scared before I went that I'd be getting pushed into the lockers and hung upsidedown for my lunch money.

    My friends call people who work out a lot 'muscle dummies'.

    Klingon.

    Ive always found gyms reasonably friendly wih a fairly broad range of clientele, except the one I briefly went to in sydenham where someone allegedly got stabbed. Let that guy go on the lat pulldown machine, it's not worth the hassle.

    The ones that prance around punching stuff and exclaiming HUHH-TSSSSSSSsssss on each contact... I wish them all the best, I really do.

    This thread hasn't quite gone how I wanted it to, so far. I suppose there's an irony to hoping for intellectual content from a thread about working out but I was hoping for more (personal or otherwise) thoughts on what the gym and exercise culture are *doing* in 2020? What does it do *to you* to participate - or fail to do so?
