11 Clues You Might Be a Gym Geek

Take this quiz and give yourself one point for each yes answer. Please note, this is intended to be funny. Don’t get all bent out shape unless you score over 5.  If you score a six you won’t find this funny at all and will join the ranks of people who really don’t like me.

1- Is the first thing you do when you get on the gym floor put on your IPOD?

2- Have you ever called anyone “Bro” in the gym?

3- Do you lift more than once a month in a tank top or have you ever contemplated cutting the sleeves off a shirt with a collar?

4- Have you ever lifted in a knit hat?

5- Do you do 1/2 chinups and use the excuse it hurts your shoulder?

6- Do you bench every Monday?

7- Have you ever done this workout. Bench–> Cheat Curls ( done in a squat rack with 95 lbs.)–> Stairmaster?

8- Have you ever tried to convince yourself that running is leg work?

9- Have you ever muttered the phrase “All you” at the end of a friends bench press set?

10- Have you ever used knee wraps with less than 225 lbs. on the bar?

11- Do you or have you ever owned lifting gloves?

1-4 You are probably still OK

5-8 You have a problem. Recovery is still possible however

9-11 You are “the guy” everyone laughs at in the gym.

  1. Howdy I came across your post by chance, I was searching the net for Honolulu flooring providers when I came upon your site, I must say your site is very interesting I just love the theme, its amazing!. I’m in a bit of a rush in this instance to entirely browse your site but I have favorited it and also subscribed for your RSS feeds. I will be back in a day or two. Thank you for a great website.

    I’ll forgive a one. I might have to write one up for women.

  3. Coach Boyle, you are hilarious. One of the things I admire most about your coaching abilities is your humor!

    So, I only got 1…I am embarrassed to admit that I do say “All you” when I spot Joe on the bench. I really just need him to know that I didn’t help at all so he doesn’t get mad at me =).

  4. 80% of my gym would score at least a 9 on your test. Its an endless source of entertainment for me.

  5. I got a 6 AND AM PROUD OF IT!!!!!!!! The important thing here is that 4 of those points happened exculsivley in high school. I don’t see anything wrong with the other two, which are numbers 1 and 2.

    I think Coach Boyle is just hating on us young bucks with the first two examples :) You just GOTTA lift heavy with an IPOD nowadays and you cant help but tell someone “good job bro” after a heavy squat!

    You forgot the weekly appearance of the “banana hammock” for all those UFC wanna-be’s.

  7. One major hole in your list Mike: What about the guy who likes to check out his abs in the mirror and show everyone else by cleverly pulling up his shirt to wipe his forehead and spends his entire rest time between sets studying his reflection instead of doing filler work or stretching.

    I think “it’s all you bro” is a double negative and earns a score of four, not three.
