When at the gym do you check out and compare other men's bodies to yours

    It's something I do I look when in the changing rooms at other men's bodies not of course in a sexual manner, but to compare my body to theirs, and see where I need to improve

    Everyone does that, even straight guys do it, and anyone who says they don't is a liar.

    That is true. It is just good motivation to see other guys push themselves.

    No. I will see and appreciate their physiques and I will watch someone perform an exercise for technique ideas. At near 60, I am contented with my body and its progress.

    Only the black guys, but not for the reason you may think.

    Both quite correct.

    I used to, but not any more. I am happy with what I have achieved, I know my goals and comparing to others is just not the thing for fitness. It is an individual sport, everyone has an unique physique, and you can't compare to someone who takes different supplements than you or does different kind of workout. It is silly.
    Admiring is another thing, though. And I don't mean sexually admire, but rather praise someone's hard work and results. ;)

    I try not to compare because I know that if I did I'd feel either superior or inferior to the subject. Neither is good. I do appreciate a beautiful, natural physique, however.

    Of course I do, and I dig it when they check me out as well!

    Out on the floor? Hell yeah! It's called gympspiration and I don't just mean the eye candy. I go to a few different gyms..depending where I'm at..usually at the same hour, and I look forward to seeing the other regulars who work hard and get results.

    Who has been bulking up beyond visual appeal and then in just a few weeks has cut to perfection. The scrawny nervous kid who transforms into confident fitness model over the course of 2-3 years. Without comparing myself I just get a boost from it.

    The locker room is another story. There's a few who like to strip, strut, flex, and pose. But other than them I just respect the modesty, privacy, or insecurities of most others that you can tell don't want to be gawked at.

    Matthew56: Why not in a sexual manner?

    I like seeing people make progress too. I'm watching this one guy who has lost a bunch of weight and I root for him in my head.

    There's another guy who got noticeably more buff at one point. That really motivated me too.

    The locker room is definitely another world. Guys who don't seem to care a whit about me out on the floor are suddenly looking at me when I'm getting into my swim suit, like I'm a totally different person. I think that's just the way guy's brains are wired though :p

    When I look at another man, the only thing I might be comparing is past sexual experiences with what I might like to do with the new guy.

    Everyone checks everyone out, especially in a hard core gym.

    One thing I don't tolerate, though, is being cruised by a perv. There's a time and a place; the gym isn't it.

    Totally agree. Oddly, I see a lot of guys checking each other out on the floor but then get very shy in the locker room.

    There's a fitness book I read years ago, that said you should never compare yourself to other bodies in the gym. Why because everyone's results will vary based on genetics, this, that and something else. But, sometimes you may notice that there's a muscle you can work on more...like for me I noticed awhile back that triceps and front delts needed more attention. I started looking for ways to do those.

    If you want to compare bodies...watch a porn instead lol. You can stop and rewind however many times you want.

    Don't get into these white guy's heads. They need to see other qualities besides the dick.
