Hey Captain Douche, excuse me, I’m flexing here.

With all the baffoons roaming the Serengeti of a gym, I’m surprised I’m still grazing there at all…


In my time on this blog I’ve had moments of ranting about naked guys and nipple showings.  It wouldn’t surprise me if some of the wonderful readers of this blog are starting to think that I’m training at some R-rated fitness facility, as some of the instructors also shadow as ladies of the night…

And still I go.  Mostly because it’s the only decent gym in the place I call home.  I choose to deal with all this shit on a daily basis, risking life and limb whilst fighting the fight of fit vs fat.  (Fit is leading at the moment, partly due to me scoffing down wood chips, broccoli, protein sludge and a green tuna salad, every frigging day of my life.)  What remains sad is that I’m doing this willingly…

It has been a while since I’ve raised any serious complains about life of a fitness wannabe but it only takes one idiot to provoke me into a rant.  And lucky me, (and you) I found one.  A guy who puts unspeakable acts on daily display.  Enough is enough!  Someone has to say something.  And that someone is gonna be me.  On a semi-anonymous blog, off course!  He might be a douche but he is bigger and younger than yours truly.  Besides, I prefer my legs unbroken and my teeth where they belong, in the glass on my bedside table.

So Captain Douche here goes…

I know you’re a big guy, much bigger than you were two months ago, so you’re probably not used to your horse hormone induced physique, which is the only reason I can think of as to why you’re so obsessed with your own reflection. And let me just say this: Natural my arse! As is evident by the monstrous collection of pimples and acne you’ve acquired in recent weeks. It looks like seventeen kids hit puberty in one body, all at the same time.  Pizza anyone?

But that’s your problem, especially considering you’ll only regret using the juice in years to come, when you end up with a pimple scarred body, failing kidneys, C-cup man-boobs and two useless, puny testicles.

What is my problem however, and the reason for this rant, is that in your journey of transformation to increase your miraculous muscle mass, you’ve also turned into an inconsiderate f*ck. Sorry!  It only hurts because it’s true.

Here’s why I’m throwing that f-bomb your way:

  • You never bother to return any of the weights to the rack after you’ve used them. You leave them on the floor so other people can fall over them. And for that you should be shot in the face at close range. It takes a special kind of stupid NOT to understand the simple concept of having other paying members sharing the equipment and facilities of the gym.  Even if you don’t consider us, mere mortals, to be worthy of your pectoral muscles.
  • You always drop the damn weights after each set. What did they ever do to you?  Not only do I get a little heart attack every time you “clunk” it down but it also creates massive turmoil in my soul.  Enough to have me praying for someone bigger to take that dropped dumbbell and beat your head into a pulp with it.  Here’s a thought: If you can’t put the weights down like a normal person; why don’t you use lighter ones? You might even be able to complete eight reps instead of two.  Those big ones are just a tad to heavy for your arrogant arse.
  • You have an extremely, annoying habit of grunting ridiculously loud during each rep you perform. We get it, you’re going heavy. We get it, you’re a f*cking narcissist.  I do find it interesting that you would willingly attract more attention to yourself.  Do you not know that people are already discussing you behind your wide, acne ridden back?
  • And then there’s the excessive flexing.  OMG! and then some.  Is that really necessary?  From how many angles do you want to see the arch of your triceps?  And to do it wearing something that would be too embarrassed to be called a “vest”. Fortunately for us, you’ve reached a new level of confidence that allows you to move the piece of cloth away from the muscle you are admiring.  And then if we’re really lucky, we will find you flexing shirtless.  And those are the moments I live for… Stumbling upon an overgrown gorilla with a back that looks like Freddy Krueger’s face, wearing nothing but a teeny-weeny pair of pants-like-thingy, standing in front of the mirror in an Arnold pose.

You do understand that this is a public facility and NOT (1) A pool party at a frat house or (2) Spring break or (3) Miami or (4) Your own f*cking gym?  Imagine if all the members started going shirtless before they perform squats and flexes and curls. It’s the stuff of nightmares man!

Before I go, one more thing, take of the frigging cap and stop taking those damn selfies. You’re not a teenage girl.

Yes, I feel better, thank you. NO, I’m not jealous!

PS – I apologize to my regular readers, I counted three f-bombs but in my defense, there were forty-seven in the first draft.

    • The sad thing is that he was a pleasant dude when he was average size. Some say it’s the excess testosterone that turned him into a beast. Physically and emotionally.


  1. Can’t. Stop. Laughing! Every gym has these arseholes. Forgive me if I shared this in your last rant but I have to share this story with you:

    We have a guy in our gym who does the whole grunting & shouting of some primal noise when he drops his weights to the floor. He stands about 4ft fuck all (perhaps this explains things). As my male friend & I stood lifting our 10lb weights, my friend looks over & at me & says, “you know, he’s going to seriously injure himself one of the days, right?” I roll my eyes in agreement & continue to pump iron. At this point, my friend lifts his 10lb (ok, may it was 15lbs) in a bicep curl & proceeds to grunt & yell as loudly as the arsehole screaming in the corner. I bust into hysterical laughter & found my self fleeing for safety before we got a 50lb weight tossed at our heads. True story my friend. They are in every gym!

  2. Hahaha, see this is why I don’t exercise. I just do yard work which is infinitely more peaceful. In high school I was in the weightlifting club. One guy push himself too hard and broke his arm in the process. It sounded like a 2×4 snapping in two. Traumatic! I’m happy with doing P90X every several years or so…

  3. Hit the nail on the head there. Also those guys who have no idea what it is they should be doing with the damn weights and end up endangering themselves and those within a three meter radius. And the hoarders who love to gather all the different types of weights just because they *might* want them in a few minutes. This is why I love going to the gym at night!
