I don't spend much time in the cardio area of my gym, but the last few times I've been there I've noticed this one guy who is always there. And I never see him in the weights room. He was on a bike beside me before I started, then after about 25 mins he got off and went over to a cross trainer and started using that. I finished up, went off, stretched, got changed, got some water, and then came back about half an hour later to chat to somebody in the gym and I saw this guy was STILL doing cardio, he had now moved onto a stairmaster. He does all this at pretty high intensity, and any time I see him he is absolutely dripping with sweat. What's more, the sweat smells really strongly, which suggest that he has been sweating for some time.
Another thing I noticed is that this guy had absolutely no muscle whatsoever, he was wearing a sleeveless top thing and he looked terrible, looked like a skeleton or something. He had very low bf but he didn't look 'lean', he just looked unwell. I felt like saying to the guy that the last thing he should be doing is more cardio, unless he is training for some sport that requires a very high level of cv fitness, but I doubt any sport requires (probably) two hours of cardio per day alternating between cross trainers and stairmasters, etc.
I figured this guy probably has some sort of disorder. I simply can't see how anybody would want to do this, unless he REALLY enjoys cardio or something! I mean being obsessive about working out to look good is one thing, but this guy did not look good. Does anybody here know anyone like this? Is manorexia an actual disorder?
