Yeah, um... pretty sure they're not laughing at you... ogling maybe.

Unless someone is doing something really stupid (which I do see a good bit) I personally pay them no attention in the gym.

Good rule is go light, focus on form, don't swing or sway to move the weights, and you're good to go.

I've beat this into my wife and kids when they go with me. You look a hell of a lot dumber trying to move weights you shouldn't, than just going really light and working properly.

This is really a problem with young guys... I see that poo ALL the time... high school and college aged guys (particularly when there's a group) all on the bench, trying to out press each other instead of actually doing any work.

Question for you pull up peoples.

This doesn't make sense to me. I finally got to where I could do 6 wide armed pull ups in a row without a break. I was pretty excited. I took a week off and when I came back I went back down to only being able to do 3 in a row. I couldn't get back to 6. I just lost it. I got so down because it was a goal I was working towards that I didn't do pull ups for weeks now I can only do two.

WTF?!!! Do muscles revert that quickly? What muscle do you think it is that is weakening so quickly?

Does any of this sound normal? My husband can take long breaks and come really close to his previous record.

That is odd that you lost that many reps that quickly... did anything else change?

Usually when I'm out for any decent period (ie, more than 2 weeks) the first thing I notice is lacking is endurance and not strength.

I would say that in general, women probably lose muscle more quickly than men... the whole testosterone thing... but it shouldn't be THAT noticeable...

It seems crazy to me as well. Idk, maybe my body is weird.

Well still... three is good... six is impressive. Work back up to it.

My wife did back with me Sunday and she got like 1 before I had to help her each set.

Cat, in regards to your pull up question, no you should lose that much by missing a week. A lot of other things could explain it. Were you properly hydrated? Did you do anything strenuous prior? Did you warm up? Are you eating below your caloric needs? All of these can impact resistance training.

Back to working out and eating at a caloric deficit.

One good thing is i didnt lose any on my squats but about 5 lbs on my bench and the rest of my exercises.

i am not going to post numbers to those exercises though because it is embarrassing.
