    13 Things Everyone Has Said When They Went Back To The Gym

    What you say: "Yeah, I'm ready for another set of squats." What you mean: "Just kill me now."

    1. "I think I remember how this piece of equipment works?"

    Then about a minute later you're calling the trainer over for help.

    2. When your trainer asks if you're "good to go for a set of squats?" and you say, "Haha, yeah! Of course!" but what you really mean is:

    Twitter: @stupidcpid

    "Why did I decide to come back here again?"

    3. "Shit! I forgot my lock. Oh, and my towel."

    So you end up just carrying a duffel bag from machine to machine.

    4. "Is everyone silently judging me for taking supplements?"

    Twitter: @Chuck_NZ

    "As long as I'm confident and act like I belong, nobody will realize I haven't stepped foot inside this place in months, right?"

    5. "Hang on, am i doing this right, or did I just invent a whole new type of exercise?"

    Twitter: @ana_cronico1

    "Arms up and back, legs down and under, breathe deep, ignore the popping sounds... this doesn't seem like it's anything."

    6. "I'm certainly never going to forget my headphones again."

    Who puts together these gym playlists?!

    7. "I can do more weight than this. There's an old man over there pumping more than me."

    "Oh, damn. Okay... maybe not."

    8. "Did they change the way this machine works?!"

    Twitter: @RalfGuilherme

    "I swear, I used to be able to do this."

    9. "You know what? I'm actually gonna go with some lighter weights. I don't want to get too big."

    And... now that nobody's looking, I'll reduce the weight a little more.

    10. "Dude, that was easy, I'm gonna do one more set."

    Twitter: @thigo212

    It always seems like a good idea at the time, but then you definitely end up regretting it the following morning.

    11. "Someone's using the machine I wanted. I'll just take a little break and come back later."

    Twitter: @lordiozzi

    "Oh? The machine is free? Dang, I've actually gotta go! Maybe next time."

    12. "Should I lug all this crap to the gym and shower there, or stop by my place afterwards and end up being late?"

    Jokes on you, because you're going to be late to work either way.

    13. "Now that that's done, let's eat!"

    "Today's a cheat day. Tomorrow it's gonna be only protein, I swear."
