When Is It Okay To Grunt In The Gym?


    We've all been there... You are getting your sweat and pump on and all of the sudden you hear a loud manly roar, or a what sounds like a female climaxing but you turn and the sound came from a male. But what makes us suddenly get motivated by a roar, and even admire it, as opposed to going, what a %*k&#g idiot. Unless you belong to planet fitness, the first most important thing to get out is that:


IT IS OK TO GRUNT IN THE GYM!!!

    It's just a matter of when you do it! There are certain standards for each and every lift, but we don't have time to go over every single exercise so I am going to just dive into the basics....

BENCH PRESS: Any weight over 315lbs it is ok, on the light end, sets of 225 over 15 reps, sets of 185 over 30 reps. Also it helps to slap yourself in the face like Captain Power does before a max. 

SQUATS: Any weight over 315lbs again passes the grunt standard, 275 over 10 reps, and 185 don't bother, if you are doing 30 or more reps you are going to light. It is also acceptable at the end of any drop set to grunt as you throw the bar back on the rack. Don't make any noise except calling for someone to check your form if you are not going down deep enough.

DEADLIFTS: Grunt at any weight!!! I'm not kidding, you need to let your gym know the dead lift is still alive and well. Throw on 25lbs on each side and go Tarzan!

CARDIO: Grunt immediately before cardio when your gym partner suggests it. "RRGGHHHHHHHHHHHH WE REALLY HAVE TO DO CARDIO???"

ABS: Never... UNLESS!!! You tore something in the core, because then you are not going to be in the gym for awhile!!! Might as well make a big scene so you can say good bye to everyone.

"I'M GOING TO THE GYM NOW.... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"
