Open Letter to Gym Meatheads

Dear Sirs,

If you slam the weight back down once you are finished with your reps, it means you do not have proper control. You are lifting too much. I understand you wish to bulk your muscles, and the way to do that is to lift as much as you possibly can, but you should still be able to gently reposition the weight without dropping it violently. The noise it makes—as well as the sound you make when you let go, something like a primordial grunt and deep exhalation—is obnoxious and unnecessary, as, I suspect, are all of you.

I know you wish to show us all exactly how much you can lift, but all you are really showing us, your fellow gym members, is what tools you really are.

Grow up, assholes.
