Just start flexing. They’ll get the hint


Do you all say bro to women too? 😂


Are they doing curls in the squat rack ? 😫


Ha! Happened to me tonight except his guy was texting for 5 minutes between sets 🙄 usually I just ask how many more sets do you have. The awkward part is where do you hang around afterwards... 🤷🏻‍♀️


A simple “hey bro, how many sets you got left?” Then whatever they respond just be like “ok bro, let me know I’ll wait”


Grey - slamming a protein shake helps. 💪


one shall address everyone in the gym as “bro"


“Hey can I jump in?” and point too if they’re wearing earbuds


“how much longer will you be ?” or “can I work in ?”

my biggest pet peeve are the trainers who are oblivious to other gym goers.

curls or bench ? that BS never happens on leg day.

Hey all!
I'm from Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. I graduated in Psychology and coz of interest and passion for data, I did a certificate course of Data Science and Analytics (learnt basics of python and R). Now for +1.5 yrs I'm working as a Data Analyst. Coming from a non-coding background, I think not much opportunities are available for me to grow in this field. Can somebody pl guide me how can I excel in this emerging stream and upgrade my coding skills.
Thank you 😊

F 27 180k OTE + RSUs... husband can’t figure his shit out after 5 years of promises... but when there’s no responsibility it’s a novel type romance.

His misery is infectious and I’ve tried everything I can do to help him. When do you fold? When is Shakespeare love not enough?
