Do you workout harder/more intense if an attractive female is around?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
If it's a specific pretty woman then I will most likely peacock around for a bit but I learned long ago that most women do not care about powerlifting and many just find it gross and weird (their words not mine) so for average women no but for a few women that I know who really enjoy the sight of guys doing max effort singles, sure.

What really pushes me is if some of my competition is in the gym, especially around meet time, if I can get in their heads and throw them off their game I am all for it.

Not at all I see attractive women in the gym and I love to watch them but I don't forget what I am there for. I push myself for myself, the whole purpose of that is to feel better and look better. I would like to think that eventually I might mold myself into someone that women like to stare at but I don't delude myself with it. I can't believe they write papers on this kind of stuff in college. Of all things that people could learn they want to focus on total crap. I am on another thread asking about college and what I can get from it in a short period of time, like maybe a year or so. I am digging for information on how it leads to good jobs, not to be Debbie Downer but this really irks me. Is this just a trick to see if a student will blow up on anger. I guess I am slowly getting my answers. What college is going to represent in the end is a piece of paper that you can hand to a potential employer and show that you attended higher learning. He will then hand you a job that pays twice as much as the average person whom works at McDonalds.Please tell me that you have other classes where there is something to be learned.

If there are any attractive females in my area that want to work out, I am willing to test out the theory.

I head to the 5 pound dumbbells. Not intense at all. I actually lose a workout day.

My hypothesis is that guys will workout/train harder if there is an attractive girl around them


I saw an article about an experiment on this exact same question and I think the answer was "yes", you'll have to find it though.

Personally for me no, not at the time, I work out as hard as I work out regardless, but I admit that if I am sitting on my behind doing nothing constructive (like watching TV or surfing net); an image of an attractive woman is usually subliminal for "Get off your a** and start working out" if I have not been working out as often as usual.

I ignore everybody in the gym regardless of gender. It's about me and the equipment.

Yes I work out harder if attractive females are around yes we work out for ourselves but a big part of it is to look better to the opposite sex
