Any of you lot go into the gym and get tempted just to do chest and shoulders so you can have a pump and look bigger for when you go out the same night, like say skip legs, cos noones gonna notice your legs when you go out.

I get tempted to do legs everytime I go into the gym just because I know I'm going to looked more pumped than anybody else out that night or any other night. :D

The thought just hit me: wouldn't that be kinda like small-chested girls wearing a push up or padded bra? You know, it looks better/bigger than it actually is.

LOL, my gym is full of guys doing arms and chest on Friday nights. Of course, its full of guys doing arms and chest every night.

I wouldn't look at it the same as someone wearing a padded bra though. I mean, it is their body and the "pump" is a natural reaction - its not a prosthetic enhancement.

Bodybuilders get pumped before shows all the time, and noone ever gives them crap about it. Its part of the deal man.

Why do such a thing? Then you run into people at a later date from that night, and they ask you if you've shrunk. Of course I don't go out, and if I did and was looking for a girl, I wouldn't want to pick one up because of my body.

Well actually my heavy arms day is Friday. I usually go out though Thursdays, Fridays, and Sats. Usually the pump won't make as big of a difference as you'd think it would. Really, there are many other things you could do to help you pick up chicks that would work much better.

yeah i used to do that, just cuz i didn't feel "worked out" without doing chest. this was when i was doing real informal, unstructured workouts. now that i'm being more serious about it, no way. it's not a good idea unless you're planning for chest twice a week or something.

and yes, all hail the mighty split!

I'm with Chase.



I dont go out.




But if I did, which I dont, I wouldnt want to pick up a girl because she is so enamored with my body, which she wouldnt be.


So...no.

I'd rather not have to rely on a workout pump to look big.

You use twinkies for that don't you. :p

Normally if you get a pump from working out you lose quite a bit of definition. Even when competitors get ready to go out on stage, you don't see them blasting their biceps back stage. So it boils down to you looking maybe a 1/4" bigger and less defined (that doesn't last more than an hour or so) or you go out as normal and don't worry about it.

For me a pump lasts around 40-45 minutes maximum. When people go out at night, they usually are out for a good few hours, so I dont really understand what the point of a pump would be...

neva said i done it to pick up chicks but I like going out feeling more confident bout my size, I used to do it, but since ive got more serious and bigger I dont, still get tempted though.

Usually the guys who walk around at bars all pumped up either:
(a) Get laughed by everyone
(b) Get their ass kicked by the smallest guy in the bar
(c) a and b
