Am I really the only guy here that works out without listening to music because I'm scared to get jumped?
>>71071885>Am I really the only guy here that works out without listening to music because I'm scared to get jumped?not all of us live surrounded by shitskins
>>71071900My local gym serves Indian food, not even joking. And it’s a chain gym
I lock up my phone when I work out. The world took care of itself for billions of years before I was born, it will.be fine without me for an hour.
>>71071885I dont listen to music because I don't want to lack any awareness and injure myself. I also find the workout relaxing on its own and enjoy the time to think quietly and introspect. I've tried headphones a few times and it feels too disconnected and just consooming content to consume. Sometimes people who are doing less compounds that have oversized beats headphones on look really comfy, just dont think it's for me.
>>71071907>gym>serves foodthen it’s not a gym
I watch/listen to cnbc on the gym TV
I play oldschool runescape between my sets
>>71071885If I get jumped at my house it's either the dog, or it might be over.>>71071934Nothing wrong with that. It's the only time of the day I listen to my music so I double down on the fun time. Helps me get more reps too.
>>71071885based aware of the surroundings survivor, niggas be acting like prey getting swole just to be jumped like a buffalo or something
>>71071885I would suggest bringing a concealed weapon to the gym. Anyone that comes near you is a suspect. They are coming soon, be prepared.
>>71071885No because I can go an hour or 2 without having shitting rap hiphop garbage pumped into my head at full volume.It seems people are addicted to being constantly stimulated with screens or entertainment. Look at how this nigger villifies anyone who doesnt conform the social norms of constantly having nigger monkey rap blaring in your ears.
>>71071998you sound like a normal well-adjusted person. what’s your opinion on the Jews?
>>71071934also an earbud falls out in the middle of a rep, rolls across the floor and gets stepped on lol
>>71071885Don't go to a gym where people jump people for no reason? That said I'm autistic as fuck and I also have a problem with not being able to hear some of my surroundings so I simply listen to music on open ear headphones like aftershokz and shit.
>>71072004Idk. what does whatever device youre holding right now tell you to think about them?
>>71071885I don't even work out.
>>71072037Why are you here?
>>71072058I'm getting into the mood.
>>71072069If you don't know where to start, let me know and I can make some suggestions
>>71071885I don't have a choice. Commercial gyms are always blasting shitty music, so I wear headphones and listen to music I actually enjoy.
>>71072076how are you responding? what is your device telling you?
>>71072087Are you new here brah? I'm just checking the thread
I listen to JRE while working out or other pdcasts. Music and lifting is a meme
>>71072120Doctor told me to start taking my medication at dinner
>>71071885If I don't have music playing I hear cars racing by, pool filters running, or lawnmowers and leaf blowers.Homegym master race
>>71072076I want to strengthen my tendons so they don't snap my wrists off if I ever lift too heavy.
>>71071907Imagine the smell.
>>71071885its either listen to my own music, or whatever bullshit the gym plays, i dont think i need to tell you which i choose
>>71072004You think Larry Fink is a good person? Answer the question without saying>muh pol
Headphone users are the most annoying people in the gym. They all have 0 spatial awareness and are constantly in everyone’s way
I've seen the guys that don't listen to music at my gym>old and fat>loner with a hoodie on>guy who spends too much time talking to others>turbo autist dyelI also find it very had to believe that you can have an intense workout without music. A good song, with hard lyrics and base adds 30lbs to my lifts. The days without music are always shit. Especially if the gym is playing garbage on the speakers
>>71071885The workout is perfect by itself
>>71071885I'd say the majority of people at my gym lift without headphones. Of those that do, the majority are women probably trying to make themselves unapproachable. A few guys do obviously but most in general don't I'm super new and like being aware of my surroundings so I don't accidentally make some kind of faux pas. The only wireless headphones I've got are my work ones with a big mic sticking out and I'd look like some kind of freak, though I do like the idea of blasting some Ghost while I lift weights but especially to relieve some of the monotony of the exercise bike
>>71072730 Seinfield is alright
My second ipod shuffle kicked the bucket after many years of service you literally can't get em anymore, unless they're chinese knock offs or overpriced and usedi refuse to bring my phone to the gym
>>71071885I'm just hoping someone talks to me is all.....
>>71071885My ears hurt when I use earbuds so I've never got into listening to music when I'm outside
>>71071885If you're actually working out and making actual gains you don't have to worry about getting jumped.
>>71071885The instructors at my gym have the same music taste as me so i don't need headphones. They're always blasting good shit on the radio
>>71071885I don't use earphones if I'm training with my bro because we used to use them and I got distracted once spotting him on Flat Bench and accidentally lifted it for him one rep too early and wanted to kill myself afterwards
>>71071900I wear a pair of these plugged into nothing while at they gym Tucked into my shorts waistband.Pretends to listen to music and audiobooks while actually perfectly cognisant of all the happening around me There will be no sneak attack, I know you are coming >Boomers have stopped giving me unsolicited lifting advice since wearing them>Chads give me my space think I'm in the zone>Stacies think I'm intense and mysterious >Broccoli zoomers avoid me thinking I'm sussin fr frThe only downside is that I have to listen to the awful gym music, other than that it's pretty cozy
>>71073321Tim cook took away the 1/8th inch and bro never recovered (everyone just thinks you're poor)
>>71073069Larry David too
I keep my headphones on otherwise I start getting angry at white women for making shitty rap music. The time I forgot my headphones home, I kept mumbling yayayaya to myself to stop the shitty fucking music from getting into my ears. I even put white noise on my phone during sets to pan it out. A boomer stared a bit but I stared back till he looked away.Annoying fucking experience.As for getting jumped, I tend to know most people at my gym. A lot of them are dyels and I'm friends with many fit ones. But I always keep looking around because I still get paranoid very often. I go to a nicer gym so it's probably very unlikely that anyone would be retarded enough to jump me. Most people that I'm not friends with tend to avoid me.
I've never been to a commercial gym. My gym is always empty when I go and there's a very loud stereo system that anyone can use. I've never worn headphones while lifting.Holy shit, just another reason I can't imagine living near a city.
>>71071885The best workouts I've had in my entire life have been at my home gym with no music nor any other distractions whatsoever; only me and the fucking weights.
>>71071885i never wear headphones. i like to be aware of my surroundings and hear what others are doing. i think i only wear them in an airplane as it's the only feasible way to listen to music in that situation.
>>71073425i live in the middle of a forest and there is no gym anywhere near me except a planet fitness
>>71073437based based basedI like the sound of metal clanging and the sound of my feet on the ground while I'm running
>>71071885My gym plays music on a sound system and I only need to hear a beat to get a flow state.
Does a lion get pumped up before a kill? Does a cheetah get pumped up before giving chase? Does a tiger get pumped up before making the pounce? You think you need motivation to succeed, true nature knows you are already capable.>only mirin and hearin for me
>gym plays no musicPeople can choose to listen whatever they want on their music device>gym plays musicIs too loud so you are forced to listen to whatever they are playing which probably sucks. I can’t stand how gyms feel the need to play music.
>>71071885when you stop listening to music at the gym, you soon realize how braindead everyone at the gym is, being plugged-in, being fed media like geese being readied for fois gras. the comradery of the gym cannot prosper where all the persons are isolated in their own little capsule, hiding from their own thoughts and the interaction with others.
>>71071885I didn't wear headphones at the gym for a long time because I was too much of a Luddite to buy wireless headphones.
I don't listen to music at all.>work out in silence>drive in silence>relax in silence
>>71073348no self respecting man has ever wore air pods. just not retarded enough y'see :)wireless earbuds existed long before apples. and you are poor for not getting them instead.
gym plays music already, plus sweaty headphones disgust me.
>>71072004i think they're a great people who were just unfairly persecuted 360 times in a row. what's your opinion of them?
>>71071885I listen to music for hours everyday outside the gym, so when I lift I like to lift in peace and silence to give myself a break.
>>71071900>not all of us live surrounded by shitskinsI hate detroit so goddamned much you don't understand
>>71071998In your quest to have your mind consumed by nothing but BBC, did you forget that other forms of music exists outside of rap and hip hop?
>>71073321wear electronic earpro this way people will think you're a bluetooth NPC when in reality your ears are protected from damaging sound levels AND other sounds are boosted
>>71071998>No because I can go an hour or 2 without having shitting rap hiphop garbage pumped into my head at full volume.that's genuinely the biggest reason why I DO wear headphones. If I don't play something, anything to drown out the shit music the gym plays, I will be forced to listen to nigger music for my whole workout. So I can't even have no music if I wanted to.
>>71073096I use a sandisk clip sport
>>71072777You’re thinking of people who are constantly on their phones
>>71073062>The only wireless headphones I've got are my work ones with a big mic sticking out and I'd look like some kind of freakHoly shit. I’d lose it if I saw someone working out in those lmao
>>71073437Eh. I have a semi home gym as well (gym at my apartment complex that always empty), and I still have headphones with music blasting. I just lift better that way.
>>71073321i listen to low energy music, and sometimes on prs ill do it on complete silence. But i think you have anxiety. You care too much about what average people think. >>71071885Same with (you).
my gym needs a keycard to get in and they've been getting stricter about people getting inpeople just keep to themselves and that's fineI like to blast my tunes to keep myself amped up and it's just more fun
>>71071998precisely why I chose to invest in a home gym.
>>71071885No, anon. I can’t say that I’ve ever been afraid of getting 'jumped' at my local L.A. Fitness.
Reckon i'll start wittling between sets.
>>71071885>listen to music in gym>worried that anyone nearby might hear what I'm listening toso I don't
>>71071885I never listen to music outside of my house or my truck. Not that I'm worried about getting jump, I just prefer to know what is going on around me.
>>710718852nd gen AirPod pros have a noise canceling and transparency mode. Transparency mode allows you to hear everything around you like through a microphone, while simultaneously playing music. It’s great for situational awareness.
>>71071885music addiction is never really talked about but 90% of the population can't survive basic tasks without a dopamine hit from their headphones
>>71075899I listen to Nuremberg trials audio in the gym what is someone gonna do if they hear? Complain to the staff? They don't give a damn.
>>71071885Sometimes my headphones are dead. Otherwise the only reason I've worked out without headphones is that I worked at the gym.
>>71071885i dont wear headphones because music distracts me from counting
>>71074904surely turning your brain into a bluetooth antenna is not a good idea
>>71074612it's a bit awkward when you hear everybody's joints cracking and weird grunting sound
>>71071885The best workout I ever had was the one time the sound system at my gym wasn't working.There were almost zero shitskins, and the only down moment was when a zoomer faggot complained about the lack of music before leaving in an ADHD induced huff.
>>71075163>that's genuinely the biggest reason why I DO wear headphones. If I don't play something, anything to drown out the shit music the gym plays, I will be forced to listen to nigger music for my whole workout. So I can't even have no music if I wanted to.so much this, earplugs are the only way to go
Idk know man, power metal just makes me get those reps in yknow
>>71074758I listen to Nitsche epubs with the synthesized google text to speech (female UK voice 2) while lifting, lol
>>71071934Based introspection enjoyer
>>71075153Yup, this is the way
music is homosexual satanic propaganda. Listen to Qur'an instead to strengthen your relation with your creator
>>71077315My dude Quran must be listened with full concentration, I doubt that it's best to listen to that while workout, Better keep doing tasbih during the workout
>>71071885If you are a man that is able to wear headphones in a public setting you are an NPC. You have no instinct that tells you to be aware about your surroundings. As a man you need to be able to detect danger when it appears. Headphones make you completely oblivious to what is going on around you. Someone could come from behind and jump you without you realizing.
>>71073062>>71075186There's one fat guy at my gym that works out wearing a gaming headset. I can only imagine the stench that's contained under the earmuffs
our gym blasts Rammstein and metal/hard rock in general, so no need for headphones... sometimes pop rock, but its endurable
>>71071885I feel like I need ear plugs to go places anymore. After leaving my quiet home, and quiet car, it's like a cacophony of noise. At the gym, shitty adult contemporary playing. Getting groceries, going to restaurants, walking by normies with annoying ticking rapshit blaring into their heads. Other people in their shitbox cars with radio bass/treble settings all the way up. Even parks people sitting on benches with little portable speakers playing noise. Every where you go, just noise, noise, NOISE!
>>71076411Everyone here righteously giving coomers shit but we need a discussion about the Tooner Problem.
>>71071885Zoomers are strange creatures. When they see someone who isn't being stimulated by quirky electronic lights and sounds 24 hours a day, they're shocked. They can't understand why your face isn't buried in your phone all day.
>>71077895You have ear damage
>>71071885I can't even imagine living like this. The stress would kill my gainsI once went to a gym where they took care of your baby while working out. 60 euro a month. Still went to a cheaper gym when the kid got older
>>71078134Versus what? Your average big commercial gym has shitty pop music and a million flatscreens blaring nonstop. I’d much rather listen to my own music.
>>71071934This. Everyone's dopamine receptors are so fried they need constant stimulus. I don't need headphones, I want to be able to hear what's going on around me. Plus I don't want to carry my phone around with me because then I'm just another faggot who needs to scroll through something the second I'm done with a lift.
>>71079145Embrace the boomer iPod Shuffle, anon. My phone goes in the locker for the duration of my workout.
>>71071885Nuh, I don't listen to music as well when working out. It's an NPC habit. I'd also would constantly drain them in sweat or knock them off my head.
>>71079198So get something like this then? Why the fuck would you wear a gaming headset to the gym?
>>71071885> getting jumped in the gymWhat kind of 3rd world hellhole is that, are you in Honduras? Liberia?
>>71079216>just put these EMF emitters in your skull bro
>>71079253You can still easily find plain old wired sport earbuds.
>>71071907based. imagine a nice spicy tikka masala - or टिक्का मसाला as my gf likes to call it - after a core workout.
>>71071972Why don’t you listen to music any other time?
>>71071885I found that I personally lift heavier when I have no headphones because I can concentrate on my form better without thinking about the music in my ears. Music also doesn’t hype me up to lift heavier
>>71071885Scared to get jumped??? Are you posting this from your jail cell bro? Where the fuck are you working out????My first 3 months in the gym I didn’t listen to music because I thought it would be distracting but once you give it a try there’s no going back.
>>71071885>home gym>mostly silence>watch instagram reels in between sets like a real adult>only half the time tho, im not a loser
>>71071907You in Georgia?
>reads threadAm I really the only one who doesn't use headphones but replays music to myself in my head for my heavy sets? You can tweak the timing of parts of songs perfectly, replay if you need to take a break, etc. all literally just by thinking, no touching anything. Clean, pure, safe, no extra baggage. Only downside is I probably look autistic but everyone with headphones looks antisocial
