The gym, depending on where you get your sweat on, might be the last bastion of macho manliness that you’re going to find. Sure, you might have a barber that lets you smoke cigars and pours you a scotch, but you’re still paying him a bunch of cash for that hip cut you’ve got to have.
The gym on the other hand is a place where you can bond with men and get a workout so you look good for the ladies – or the other men — if that’s your thing. While that’s all well and good, most guys don’t have any damn training when it comes to working out.
Maybe you read a book or an article in GQ and now you’re considering a career as a personal trainer once you get all buffed up. Back up buddy – you’re probably doing a whole host of things wrong in the gym, and if you’re like most dudes, you’re not going to ask for any help.
I can’t fix all of your fucking problems for you, but I can help correct some of your most egregious workout mistakes. Give this primer a quick read while you chug a dozen raw eggs and pound a case of protein bars before hitting the gym.
