Displaying badassery at the gym can be a hard job to tackle. You want to do the iron-pumpin’ things without flirting with douchebaggery. If you want to be less obnoxious than the grunting meathead, but still have an element of badass, I've got all the bro-tips you need.
Help Your Fellow Bro Unrack The Weights
Unracking weights after deadlifting has to be one of the most difficult things you can do. And it can be more a struggle than actually lifting the weights. If you see someone struggling with removing their weights, be a good bro and help 'em out. They'll thank you, and they'll remember you.
Help Spot A Bro
After showcasing your bro strength during squats, you might just have a fellow lifter ask for a spot -- help them out. Give them a fist-bump and cheer them on as they shakingly finish their bench press. And when they're done, say:
"Bruh, you didn't even need me. Great lift!"
Encourage The New Bro
If you see a new bro coming in, a few words of encouragement goes a long way. When I was a newb bro, I had an established bro come up to me and tell me that my deadlifts were impressive. My self-esteem skyrocketed and we ended up becoming really great friends.
A badass bro is a bro who cares. Be the bro everyone wants around. When it comes to being a badass bro, you gotta be a good humanbeing.
