Why is it apparently acceptable for men to wear shirts that show their nips in the gym?

I find guys that wear weight belts while doing curls significantly more offensive


Yep. Saw a guy the other day doing curls in jeans and boots. It saddened me.


Probably because almost nobody cares about seeing men’s nips. If a man can run topless on a running trail, why would showing nips in the gym be an issue?


It’s the tanks that show nips at the side. Somehow that’s weirder than just straight top off.

The saddest is men benching the bar with low effort. Man up and do a real workout.

Heard of warmup sets?


It’s not - some people just don’t give a damn

Yeahhh I think most people don’t find that acceptable

3. What are the typical outlet routes out of FDD? I like the idea of operational or strategy based but not sure where to go from here.

For all the people asking for a referral, it is FAAAR more authentic if you reached out to high school, undergraduate, graduate classmates or ex coworkers. Or even a friend of a friend.

Unless you have ZERO connections to Google. Why would you reach out to a stranger on a bowl? Genuinely curious.

Does anyone have a home gym on top of carpet? Had a garage gym built for powerlifting before moving and now contemplating building a gym in a spare carpeted room of a new house.

Online suggestions are to basically construct a platform with stall mats over plywood over the carpet. Worried about any stability issues with heavy squats and deadlifts. Anyone use this set up or have recommendations?


Any lady lifters out there dating someone who doesn't lift? I love my boyfriend dearly. I also look like I could take him down in a fight. He's a distance runner so he's pretty lean.


Y'all. I need some strength training programs to do at home, given that gyms are closed indefinitely in NYC. Any full body workout programs? Any reliable apps to use for routines?


Got wrist wraps in the mail today! Can’t wait to see what these do for my bench!
