    Doesn't the term manpon kind of solve this for you? Just asking. The gender disassociation thing would seem to do so.

    Sounds familiar. Whether it was by chance or by design, I am quite grateful that the only squat rack in my gym happens to be the piece of equipment closest to the entrance of the men's room. Pretty typical to dodge in there between warm up sets.

    It's not as bad, but a gender-neutral term would be ideal, since using it is equally wimpy for both men and women. I wouldn't want anyone thinking we get a pass because of our delicate feminine constitutions.

    I think a T-shirt bearing the slogan "Pussies are Useful and Strong" might sell nicely.

    I know how to use a thesarus. Here are some non-gendered words for someone who lacks emotional strength in the gym:
    wimp
    weakling
    baby (Are we allowed to be ageist? Toddlers are often amazingly stoic about repeated falls when learning to walk.)
    coward
    crybaby (ageist)
    loser
    milksop
    namby-pamby
    wuss, wussy (these might be gendered)
    cream puff

    My favorite is namby-pamby. I'll try to remember to use that one.

    The 135 pad. Or the partials pad.

    This is because every guy who puts the pad on the bar neither does warmups nor squats below parallel, he just puts a 45lb plate on each side and does partial squats with it. Occasionally one will follow this up with a second 45lb plate with even shallower partial squats. A third plate is rare, but if ever tried with a slight grimacing knee dip, is invariably followed by walking away leaving all the plates on the bar. This at least has the virtue of stopping any more guys "squatting" that day, since to do so they would have to start by taking plates off the bar, and using less weight than some anonymous guy before you is just too unmanly.

    This is why I never put Dan John's loaded carries into my own workout routines when I worked at the Y, I did heaps of them every day sorting out the fucking weight plates.
