Want Muscle Gains? Don’t Be An Ass

So there’s some things I’ve learned in my years in the gym.  And while I could bring up quite a few techniques, rep cycles and the lot, I want to talk about something else that is even more important.  Friendliness.

Some of the best people I have met have been in the gym and I’ve created some long lasting friendships from just going up to people and saying hi.  I’ve also learned a lot.  Despite working my ass off in the gym I have a lot to learn and when I see people who are further along than me I like to pick their brain and find out what they do.

On the flip side of that, we should be that for people who look like they may be struggling with something or new to the gym, all it takes is going up and introducing yourself and asking what they are working out today.  It’s not hard.

Now two additional things to note here.  Don’t be that guy or girl who just talks and doesn’t workout. Don’t forget you are there to WORK, not socialize, but be friendly, offer a smile, a hello, and be genuine.

It’s easy to get in that “I’m better than you” attitude when you are in the gym.  I have to smile when I see others who are trying to one up others or stare them down.  No one appreciates this, so if you come across this just smile and move on.

Don’t be afraid to learn from others.  If you disagree with what someone is saying, that’s fine, you still may be able to gain some value to what they are saying.  So take the time to be nice, everyone in the gym is there to better themselves. So don’t be an ass.

As always we recommend you get plugged into a community.  A place to learn, grow and have fun in.  So if you are looking for that check out our Facebook Group.
