Bodybuilder Corrects Woman Who Tried To Call Out Gymgoer For ‘Doing Workout Wrong’

A bodybuilder has stepped in to defend a gymgoer who was called out on TikTok for apparently doing a workout wrong.


TikTok user Nikki Montesanti (@nikkii_fitness) pointed out a stranger exercising behind her in one of her videos, asking her followers: “What do you think he’s doing? What do you think he’s working? 

“I don’t know either.” 

Her remarks were picked up by bodybuilder Joey Swoll (@thejoeyswoll) who set the record straight. 

He said: “What he’s working is his biceps – he’s doing what’s called a drag curl. 

“Now granted most people do them with a barbell, he’s doing them with dumbbells, so it may look a little strange, a little awkward, but it is a great movement.

“It’s actually a great workout."

Joey’s response didn’t end there, as he continued: “But what’s most important, what he’s doing and working most of all, is minding his own business. 

“The fact that people at the gym take videos of other people to try and make fun of them blows my mind. Be better than that.” 

His comments section has since been filled with over 35,000 positive responses from people who agree that we should all just mind our own business a bit more. 

One TikTok user wrote: “This is literally why I don’t go to the gym... because of people like this. I know I won’t do things correctly and someone will record it.” 

Another person said: “That mans pays his membership just like anyone else.”

A third commented: “The way your main focus of your video was education. Here for that.” 

A fourth user said: “That’s my biggest fear. That I’ll try something for the first time and I’ll get judged and a new fear, filmed.” 

Joey offered some words of encouragement, as he replied: “Well please know Sasha there are good people in there that will defend and protect you! We want you in the gym.” 

He also made sure to add in a further comment that there is ‘no room for bullies in the gym’.
