Silly but legit question...

This may sound retarded but I'm really curious...

I go to one of the gyms at school at least 3-4 days a week and I usually go on one of the same few ellipticals (only a couple types really give me a good workout)...and a bunch of treadmills are situated behind them. Usually, there are guys on the treadmills, since the girls tend to prefer the ellipticals. Many times when I've been exercising happily, I'm suddenly overcome by the horrid stench of man fart. It sucks because the fans blow it right from the treadmills up to the ellipticals! So my question is...is it common for people (read: guys) to fart a LOT more often while working out? It's so gross for those of us poor girls stuck in front of them and getting the fumes blown in our faces

'tis true, we all do fart sometimes but that's just rude to have it blown in your face! it's hard to do cardio while holding your breath!! And those protein shakes can cause some nasty ones. Maybe they're just so tuned into their ipods that they're not thinking about what they're doing to you. I guess it is kinda difficult to just pack up and move a big ass elliptical to the other side of the gym.

i do have to say that when you are in the middle of a cardio workout and feel one...it is rough. gas can be really painful to hold in and it isn't like you can jump off the machine and take care of it in the bathroom.

i smell them at the gym too, but i just add it in with all the other gnarly smells at the gym.

This is the reason I workout at home alone. If I decide to fart, I can do without having to think twice about it. LOL!

I am SO conscious about farting in public. Maybe it's just me though.

LOL @ this thread.

ita with the protein shake theory, and having grown up with 4 boys and all their respective friends, i can attest to the fact that (most) dudes do not care and will do all sorts of disgusting things in public.

Haha this thread is funny. I remember a time when I was in bootcamp class at my old gym and at the end was the quiet meditation part. This guy totally RIPPED ASS at one point and everyone heard. Everyone was being too nice and not saying anything/not acknowledging it and then finally the instructor goes "dude, whoever that was, cut back on the bran. CUT BACK ON THE BRAN MAN". I think some yoga positions also might incite the fire from within, lol ;)

^Oh how funny. I ripped one in reading circle time and blamed it on my best friend sitting next to me. I was like awwww....mike that's nasty dude, really loud. Mike was nearly in tears denying that he had done it while the rest of class laughed or said eeewwwww.

I know...I'm bad.

my mom's best friend in 5th grade (who was and still is tiny btw) ripped a silent but deadly one and the teacher blamed it on the class clown...and she sent him out in the hall! the friend didn't admit it was her until like 30 years later lol.
