Really, because all it does is inspire me to take steroids.

Any of you guys ever refuse to spot someone who asks?

Did today because this dude drops weights all the fking time and I didn't want him to bail out of a squat with me behind him. He was rustled but whatevs not risking injury for him.

I only spot squats and will only spot from the front. Normally after I say that no one asks me to spot. Ever.

I hate spotting people on the bench at my new gym. Most the time they want to do burnout stuff where I'm moving most the weight.

Do you guys wear jeans? If so, slim or regular? I'm about to sell my sixth pair within the past half of a year because of sizing issues. I can't seem to find anything with a lowish rise that fits bigger thighs. My best fitting ones are the uniqlo stretch tapered things. I know there are multiple threads on this and I went through them all, thinking about just not wearing jeans.

 

edit: just rage copped a pair of PBJs cuz I'm sick of this shit, if they don't fit I'm burning them.

Just buy a size too big. That's generally what I do. For the most part it helps the thighs, makes the waist too baggy, but whatevs.

I can't wait to finish these fucking med school apps so I can get back to the gym more often. Still been going 3ish times a week because I refuse to go crazy. I should be done by the end of this week, then I just have to submit all of them.

 

Fak.

I know someone who sizes up 2 sizes and tailor the waist down. You might want to try that.

Only pair of jeans I have are Levis 511 black stretch. Funny thing is I've been wearing the same size for like 10 years, over which time I gained like 50lbs. But I wore them baggy back then.

no, but this is different at my gym because if you're asked to spot the person doing the lifting will know to fail so that the spotters can actually do their work if required. Spotting a squat is almost always a two-person job anyways, guys on both ends is much better than one guy standing behind you at erection distance.

Just buy repro cuts. Sugar Cane 1947s work good. Stay away from stuff like PBJ and other more modern cuts.
post #46515 of 49347

So I don't actually squat that much and I believe my thighs are pretty normal for anyone that lifts. But compared to the general denim market they're on the big side. These are the ones I just sold. I've a 36 waist and 25 thigh, which shouldn't technically have trouble with a slim cut. But the average thigh for 36 slim cut is like 12.25", and if I size up I'd need a 38, which is hard to find and more expensive. I was dumb enough to take the tags off without actually walking in them for a bit. They looked fine but as soon as I started wearing them outside, the thighs were pulling and they felt uncomfortable. I don't have a lot of stuff that would go with regular cut rugged jeans like LVC or selfedge brands. So the only options are weird guys, which is like eating taco bell after you've tried chipotle. I've tried PBJ, LVC 1954 501, ervell (lol), rogue territory, none of the stuff fit but think PBJ could work if I size up enough cuz the fabric is softer and stretches the most.
