Onemoresummer saidI wouldn't know where to start. And not sure I could deal with the laughs from the already tanked guys. It's rather intimidating thinking about it.
I thought you might say something like this...
When you are in the gym, just remember that every single person in the gym has NO IDEA what you've read, what you've studied, what you've eaten, etc. No one in there has any idea what "ROUTINE" you're following. AND you don't have any idea what routine they are following.
Some days I go to the gym and I lift really light weights, because I am tired and I don't feel like pushing myself that day. Any guy in the gym could laugh at me and think I am weak or pathetic, but I juts remind myself that NO ONE knows my goals, and my desires that exist in my head. Everyone starts somewhere, and no one is born all muscled up.
I've been in the gym now for some time, and when I am lifting really heavy, I often see guys next to me who are just starting out. I'm pretty intense when I lift. I probably look like I don't want to be bothered by anyone, and after a set of squats I am exhausted and throw my lifting belt, etc. But whenever I see a guy who looks like a Newbie, the only thing I want to say to him is "keep it up! You can do it." Of course, I never do that... for fear he would think that I am totally creepy.
Plus, any guy that wants to laugh at you for trying to better yourself isn't worth your time anyway. You've got to do you!
But I get it man, I was terrified when I first started going to the gym. Literally couldn't walk inside.
