I'm doing well with the weights and the nutrition. settled into a good interval week sequence. I do a daily 30 minute crossfit-ish group class at noon that is very tough, then 45=60 mins of weights. its so nice having a gym at the office.

I'm eating pretty well. fruit and yogurt in the morning, spinach chicken veggie salad, banana, greek yog, and around 45g of protein shake/milk for lunch after a hard gym session. dinner is always whatever. tonight it was a can of spicy black beans, last night it was huckle's leftover mac&cheese. I do a goodnight casein shake so I don't go to bed hungry

If you workout is it ok to have a glass of wine or 2 that night ? I want to be fit, but date or see shows

unsolicited advice at the gym is the worst. even if my form really is wildly wrong enough to very suddenly and seriously get hurt, which i know it's not, let me learn that lesson myself, nosy motherfucker

it happens to me to this day

there was this guy who won a transformation contest at a former gym, going from a stick to a guy with a little bit of muscle in 8 months, nothing super impressive but enough to make him feel like he was the bodybuilding guru

i was doing 21s one time and he interrupted me to tell me I wasn't getting full extension. I probably had 5" on his arms at that time and I was infuriated. so when I finished I calmed myself and walked over to tell him about 21s and to not interrupt people while they're lifting

the worst part is I stopped at 14 because I didn't want him to look over and think "ah, he figured it out, I did good"

to be fair, mostly everyone including myself is using some machine in less than an optimal way, i usually bite my tongue when i want to help someone just cause I dont wanna come off like I'm superior or have them feel like an idiot. you'd be surprised how many people cant even use a machine like the lat pulldown properly. I do certain technique reps I've seen in vids from people like athleanx that gets me some wtf looks. i'd say it's fine to correct someone if they seem new or are doing things that dont look too safe. I went to a powerlifting gym once and had never used some of the equipment like a safety bar and got corrected, even though i felt like a dumbass for a sec, i appreciated it.

Unless I'm changing in the locker room, I have earbuds in and music on all the time. I don't want to talk to these people and I don't want them talking to me.

https://www.youtube.com/user/FitnessFAQs

these are great for the basics (and certainly advanced movements as well, but they really do the beginner/intermediate stuff well, with a solid foundation in human physiology/movement, with an emphasis on doing things properly to avoid injury)

yeah i do some wrist warm ups but i think overall my wrist mobility could be a lot better, still doesn't feel too good when i front squat so gotta keep the weight really low

Last Wednesday, a guy stopped me because he said he was worried about how bad my squat form was and I said "I know it looks awkward but it's fine because I'm switching from high-bar to low-bar and lifting at 33% of my max while I get used to the new form" and he asked me what low-bar/high-bar is while eyeing me suspiciously.
