So whereabouts would this gym be out of interest?

Love the tongue-hanging-out smiley. Adds just the right note, I think.

I saw a woman hanging upside down reading a book !!

...actually though we did use to do trapeze training in a martial arts gym (for the high ceilings). We got to see loads of fat sweaty wrestlers' builders' bums  and they got to leer at lycra-clad girls' bottoms in between bouts .

My now-husband used to share a house with a whole bunch of folks when he was a student, when we first started going out together he invited one of them (his best mate) along to the gym with us, as he was really into body building.

 

So, mid way through a run or whatever I wandered over to chat to him - he was bedecked in bright yellow cycling shorts and a t-shirt.  (this was the 90s), and was doing an overhead tricep extension lying stretched out on a weights bench.

Bearing in mind this was the first time I had really spoken to the guy - he was a little bit embarrased when as he lifted the weight back - one of his bollocks popped out of his shorts.

 

To make matters worse - it was a really heavy weight and he couldn't do anything until he had completed the move and brought the weight back over.....

You should have said ...... 'Let me just tuck that back in for you there ...... there you go .... hang on its caught on the bottom of your shorts, just untwist it ...... there we go ....'

I did hear of one guy who liked wearing those skimpy flappy running shorts to teach aerobics in. He had to do the exam to qualify and you teach to your fellow students. Anyway - half way through his exam - he fell out of his shorts.

Amazingly the examiner passed him. She hadn't spotted it !

Would you be happy you passed or sad that she couldn't even see it ?

I'd be deeply disappointed, unless my shorts were really quite long.

hang on, aren't cycling shorts/lycra skins normally very skintight, and go a long way down your legs?

how on earth did anything creep out of those?

if they were loose boxers, easily done.

He wasn't wearing anything underneath and there was a small tear at the crotch.  Believe me I did not examine his shorts closely after the incident!

sometimes do my long run in the gym if my son is threatening to be poorly at nursery and I need to be contactable. There are several blackspots where I can't get a signal and being stuck 10 miles from home with a poorly child wanting mummy is horrible.

(oh, and I have seen your posts Mr by eck...)

Have you never seen any innocent looking teenagers in the gym wearing stuff where you know they know exactly what they're doing?  There seem also to be more than their fair share of sixth form guys trying to out-do each other on the weights.

I'll often run in a mankini to draw attention on the treadmill.
