Do you secretly egg on other gym goers

Righto this might sound a bit weird but do you find yourself egging on other people in the gym??
 
What I mean is if I'm between sets & I see someone pushing some good weights around & doing well then In my head I'm counting reps with them & mentally encouraging them to get a few more reps out.
 
Is it weird that I do that??
I'd never dream of going up to them & telling them anything but in my mind I'm the spotter spurring them on.
 
So am I the only one who does this?

    No, but I do secretly wish for the demise of people trying to push weights way beyond their capacity with seriously bad form.

    Lol oh I do that too.
    Normally the weedy little chavvy types who think they can trhow around the big numbers while their mates stand around.
     
    The people I egg on in my head are your proper gym goers those you can see have been at it a long time & train hard & properly & have the physiques to match.

    No im quite the opposite

    I always compare myself to those at the same strength as me.... so have personal battles against them...

    so if I was to see them develop stronger than me.... it would quite frankly piss me off..

    Yes im horrible lol

    Soundwave I do the same thing. Then after my session when they're lathering up in the shower I give them a rats tail with my wet towel on their ass, and tell them that I've been watching them, egging them on & counting their reps mentally and that they're looking good.

    Nah i prefer to wait till they move off the smith machine and then i jump in, then i slag them off to my gym buddies as i am a double hard b@stard.

    The cheeky buggers only have the front to actually stare at me. Though to be fair i am gorgeous. Had to complain to the manager about them coming onto me.



    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

    No never do this to be honest.
    As mentioned though i do hope some fail, but harsh, and dont want them injured but people pushing weights obviously too big or using terrible form fall into this category

      Not secretly , I'll openly call encouragement to someone who is pushing themselves effectively though , thats what its all about IMO. 

         On the other side of it , I find it hard to pretend I am impressed (or even interested) when the opposite is true  - maybe that is where I should be "egging on"  , but it just winds me up TBH 
         i.e. someone does an entire set of assisted reps , I am simply not interested from the offset , no point in calling for another rep , or one to be completed , as it is pretty certain they'll manage between the two of them ! 

          ...But watching someone grinding out more reps (under their own steam) than you know they were previously capable of is a wonderous moment IMO , it is what we are in business for and should be applauded loudly. 

    Lazy is a word used by the obsessed, to describe those with a life.

    What Z said. If I see some impressive lifting I'll think well done... I rarely see this tbh.

    I secretly perv on other gym members.

    Nah, I'm lying, it's not a secret.
     



    Yes, I also do the egg in the head thing sometimes, but only if I know the person, not with complete strangers.
