Hello. I'm a skelly (only 65kg). I've been lifting weights at home but it looks like I'm making decent strength gains so I'm going to need to use more weight.
So I should hit the gym soon but the problem is I'm embarrassed by myself. My body. I've always felt like this. I'm too skinny. 12 year old grills and boys have bigger wrists then me.
I don't have any friends so I'd have to go by myself. But I'm just scared. Like, I know 99% probably won't care about me in the gym but sometimes I see gifs/read stories about people getting ridiculed in the gym... It all just makes me scared
shut the fuck up and just go. I'm weak as fuck. Yesterday there was a guy next to me bench pressing more than my max deadlift. The reason you go to the gym is to improve yourself.
Plus most people are too busy doing their own shit to notice you or care unless you're blatantly doing something retarded to draw attention.
Nobody cares about you, everyone's busy with their own thing. Yesterday I told a fucking giant that I was using the squat rack when he came up, and he just said aight let me know when you're done.
Nobody cares man, just go, lift and do what you're supposed to.
It's actually admireable to see someone with a weaker body trying to get in form. The only reason People from /fit/ would try to ridicule you would be when you do some made up shit workout or do stuff with horrible form.
Inform yourself right, do your stuff and you have no reason to be embarassed.
Sure, ocassionally there will be cunts actually making fun of your body or even girls, we had that kind often. You know what? Fuck em, you gain nothing from their thoughts
Do you have any idea how many of us have felt this same fear? You're on fucking 4chan, bro. The first day I went to the gym I felt so anxious I could barely do anything, but you keep going and it goes away. Hell by my second fucking day I felt fine, I realized nobody was looking and we were all there for the same reason. It's like asking out a girl, the only way to get over fear is do face it head on - you're not going to get over jack shit sitting at home.
Dude I used to feel exactly like you. I put off working for 3 fucking years because I was too embarrassed to go to the gym. I could have been fucking ripped by my senior year of highschool and fucking lots of women, but I didn't because I was a faggot and was too much of a pussy to workout. I just started working out around 5 months ago and have put on twenty pounds and for once I don't look like such a hungry skeleton. Just workout hard. People will respect you if they see you working hard as fuck every time you're at the gym.
don't do anything ridiculously stupid and you'll be fine. everybody was where you are at some point in time. the first year I lifted, I only went between 1 and 3 am because I didn't want to embarrass myself. now I still avoid people because I'm socially retarded, but I don't care at all if the creepy old indian dudes feel the need to stare at me when I lift.
