So I make my bi-monthly run to Vitamin Shoppe for my Myoplex today and I see this new dude working there walking around hawking some supplement to the people in the store.I grab my stuff and overhear him telling 2 wide-eyed teenagers how they need this to get "big and ripped" like the guys at the gym.Now these two kids must have weighed 100lbs. soaking wet,and were desperate to buy anything to grow and get jacked;they had a shopping cart full of whey protein,Ripped Fuel,Xenadrine,Myoplex,etc,etc.Musta been at least $150 bucks worth.
Anyway,I'm tired and cranky after doing legs and I go stand in line behind this housefrau buying whatever.i see an old gym buddy come thru the door and he says whats up and walks away.Here comes the supplement dude with whatever he's selling coming straight for me.I am SO not in the mood for whats about to happen
Goes something like this:,
(him)"Hey,I see you have Myoplex there.."
(him)"Well,I can tell your kinda into to working out"
(me)"Oh yeah,hows that?"
(him)"Well,it looks like your kinda Buff and your buying Myoplex,but I can see you need to add some mass,this will help you do it"
(him)well,this stuff(I didn't even remember wtf it was
)will make you Big AND Ripped my man.."
.........**(my old training partner walks over and stands next to me at this point to chat)**
(him)Is that what kinda gains your looking for??
(old training partner)**cuts the dude off mid-sentence**"You look beat bro,just get done training?"
(me)"yeah,I'm spent,I did quads today"
(old training partner)"u still squating 500 for reps**(breaking the dudes balls)***
(me)Nahh,tired today,went light,repped out w/415 for sets of 12"
(old training partner).."So Rob,rumor has it your going to compete again"
(me)"Yeah,I might,just trying to bump past 240lbs. before I start to diet,I'd like to step onstage at 190@5%B.F.."
and with that the dude walks away back to the 2 teenagers and kept eyeballing me in disbelief cause I had a heavy winter jacket on,like he was trying to put it all together
I'm soo lucky my old partner jumped in and saved me from this abuse
If anybody remembers the "Funny Gym Stories" thread Spidey posted,my friend who was talking to me was the guy who shit himself on the squat rack
I guess the funny part that I almost forgot to mention is that the guy trying to get me to buy this stuff was grossly overweight and was telling me that it worked "miracles" on him,even though it looked he never touched a weight in his life.
