Anyone else get this?

You stand in the gym after a hard workout all pumped thinking to yourself "hmmm, I am looking quite big and pumped today" then some huge tw@t stands next to you and makes you look small

oh well, at least the big guys notice me know and dont step on me

    Nope, but I like finding all the newbies checking themselves out then standing next to them so they look all small

    i dont have that problem, im quite chunky, only thing theyd shadow me over is in height . i train during the day so the men as it were would most probably train in the evening.

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.

    My trainer is on holiday so one of the other young trainers at the gym asked if he could train quads with me today. Halfway through the session, one of the gym members came up to my partner and said to him: "Oh, so you are now training with the big boys!". That made me feel kind of good.

    Even better. My partner apparently bragged beforehand to the other trainers that he was going to **** me up good and proper with a real hard quad session. Well, halfway through the leg press sets he had to go lie down on the floor, moaning "I have a headache, I have a headache!" He could not even finish the last set of leg press. Sissy boy!

    Back to the original question. No, today I looked the better!

    Of course, but I'm just really impressed by one guy who competes at over 200lb's

    just looks awesome!

    That is true STEF. I'm much happier now at 2 stone leaner than when I was just a bulky lump at 19st....... now I want that size and this condition tho.

    No not really TBH.

    I'm not a midget so people notice me already.

    I never really think "oh I look good today" so I'm never dissapointed when one of the many many people who look better stand next to me.

    Also a few of my friends are in the 6'4 to 6'8 region in height so I'm used to being one of the smaller ones there.

    look up Roy Patterson - he trains at the same time as me - so no I dont check myself out because he could stand there and make me look rather - erm less than impressive shall we say.
    I just resort to picking on Ian Stocks who must be the only guy who has smaller arms than me

    Seriously In my gym i am nowt special build wise - even in a belly comp I am outclassed!

    Nope dont get that.
    I have had a guy stop and stare at me 2ft away while doing deadlifts and then walk off when Im finished.

    I have also noticed that when Im squatting all the guys are training upper body. Strange that.

    Rag: thats funny, I was training and these lads must have been 17 just (age min for my gym is 17), and they walked past on my top shrug set and their mouths were literally open!
    I felt like a god for about half a second

    forgot to Say Stocks is arguably the best under 70kg natural in the UK right now !

    Couldnt careif eddie abbew starts posing next to me tbh. When i take my top off when pumped and flex in the mirror im only doing it to check my own progress, it doesnt bother me what others look like because i have my own goals and in time will achieve them. Everyone is at different levels but we are all trying to improve, its better to get someone bigger than you standing next to you because then you can see better what needs to be improved when you compare. Eg look at the olympia, the top guys all look fantastic during their own routines but only the real top guys can be picked out because of the lineout and compulsary poses, the comparison shows up others strong and weak points...competition is always healthy.

    Who cares what anyone thinks if one day down the line everyone is staring at you in awe?

    Lol stef @ estrogen boys, pmsl, i have to use that name now, but what is an 'estrogen boy' exactly? You mean trendy disco boy type guy?
