Are guys just as *****y as women? Or is it just bodybuilders? Watch

    Long story short, I am around the gym quite a lot and talk to people in the fitness community. What strikes me is how *****y guys can be towards each other.

    I have lost a lot of bodyfat over the past few months and I feel like some guys see me as a bit of a metrosexual. My goals differ from theirs but it seems like they are just obsessed with size while I want to be lean and have my face look nice without the fat. And yes, I lift for looks, not because I want to look like I can beat someone up or like I am doing it just to be huge.

    I may go to the gym at a different time now because since I got a lot more 'aesthetic' I notice more the sizing up that guys do with each other and it is getting a bit boring. I have noticed that these guys all go to the gym round about the same time in the day (the late evenings).

    And by "lifting for looks" I mean I lift for girls.

    Guys are just as *****y as girls are to each other half the time. The only difference is that I would say we don't really mean it as much. We exaggerate a LOT. We enjoy a good moan.

    I do cross fit at the gym, and there are usually more guys than girls there when I go. I don't notice any *****ing but the sizing each other up, yea...maybe there is some sort of competition going on sometimes, with a few of them.
