Funny Story At the Gym

Ok, so there I am at the gym just about to get started and I have an IPOD and the stand (BOYB, down with the sickness, last resort, got the life, word up, coming undone etc) and im mid-way thru my 7th rep of 225lbs (which is now very heavy for me) and all of the sudden Girlfriend by avril lavigne comes on... everything stops, turns slow-motion as everyone slowly turns and looks at me and now the 225lbs feels like 5000lbs and it was quite awkward...

but good times.

Awesome. I have a similar experience. In my high school strength training class, my buddy would start singing random songs in a gay voice while I'm toward the end of my set (bench). The one I remember the most was "Oh what a night."
Shit, now I have that song stuck in my head. dooo do do, do do do do dooo do...

That's such a great song!!! I would try even harder with that playing!!!

No just kidding, I'd be pissed if someone was playing Avril Lavigne at the gym. Though the gym I go to tends to play house which I don't like anyway - oh well. Every gym in London plays house.

Reminds me of this really tall/fat son of a bitch that used to fight amatuer shows in my area. He was a big scary looking guy but just kind of a weird cool dude. He would look all crazy and belt out "Closer to the heart" by Rush

Yeah once in my MMA gym whatever CD we were listening to was scratched so we had to resort to the radio. It got really awkward rolling when Kelly Clarkson came on.
