    (With tongue-in-cheek apologies to the original poster. At another forum I frequent RunnersWorld.com frequently people will repost a topic, changing a word or two and the results are hilarious as they veer off into a new direction. Hope you think this one is.)

    I can't STAND IT!!! I hate it so much, more than you realize! They're in the rec center at anytime of day, the douchebags who work out wearing nothing covering their torso, intending to show themselves off. (They do it for comfort? PUH-LEASE!!!) When I see guys like that, I begin to truly hate myself, everything I am! They make it look so easy and good to them, and it just does me the opposite. I lose the will, I feel inferior, and for me to continue to make any progress at all, I have to push and struggle and suffer for it! They make me feel stupid like I don't even know what I'm doing!!!

    So, has anyone here ever worked out "in the buff" or what would you think/do if YOU saw someone else doing it?

    What i hate is the guys who workout in the buff are the ones that should NOT be taking off there clothes anyhow.

    Yes, I've done it and it doesn't bother me when others do - regardless of what they look like. IMHO there is no better way to focus on the muscle you're working than by watching it. All of my best gains have happened with that kind of visual feedback.

    Are you saying naked above the waist? I've never belonged to a gym or health club when this was even allowed. Where is this happening?
