I used to think stringer tank tops were just a goofy narcissistic thing worn by roid-head body builders. And the show of so much skin a bit immodest. But then I won one at a give-away when my gym, a Golds, was doing a re-opening for a new owner. So I tried it on and discovered it really does let you watch specific muscles that you want to target to see if what you're doing is hitting that muscle to maximum advantage. No one seems to look twice when I've got it on and now I've gotten to kind of like it and think it is actually helping me improve my workouts. I find I'm watching guys wearing one while doing a lift I'm not doing to see exactly which muscle is reacting and then I can incorporate that move into my routine if something I think I need to work on. I'm also becoming much less (silently) opinionated about guys that spend a lot of time watching themselves in the mirror while working out. What do you guys think? Is a stringer a step too far in the gym?
