WTF...you should've jacked him. I mean if he's gonna wear it, might as well be for a reason. Either that or he's stone crazy. Only time I've seen it is the gym I go to has boxing/MMA training in the basement and a few guys will wear it then.

Yeah, there is no where to do any of that kind of stuff, at least it wasn't set up today. He was wearing it in the weight training area.

I swear to christ I'm going to kill everyone there. They are all arrogant, naive, and f*ckin rude. It makes me mad that NO ONE puts away their weights. I want to punch everyone, young children and the elderly alike, for being such douchers.

I'm good friends with a dentist who has seen people come in with cracked teeth as a result of clenching/grinding during heavy lifts. He usually fashions a plastic mould - nothing as extreme as a mouthguard, but it isn't such a stupid idea especially since dentistry costs a ****load.

there is a mouthguard designed for increasing lifts, I forget how it worked some guy came to my gym and gave a demo on it

I can understand that but it's not like he was lifting no heavy ass weights. I can see some guys ripping their teeth up (powerlifters, as mentioned) but this kid should not have been wearing a mouthguard.

Did it also increase anabolism by a trillion percent? Cause if the answer is yes, then I know which one you're talking about.

i've spotted it twice . It was explained to me that he grinds his teeth while lifting. Mouthguard prevents it

Maybe he was weak and his lifts were heavy to him? Who knows.

I have coworkers who used to clench/grind just writing code at work. It's just as much the mental state as the physical action. I have a bad tendancy to clench when I'm out cycling - I literally chewed through a small guard doing it. It's not out there that this kid does it at lighter weights... and better to look a bit silly to a few people than pay the dental works. Makes sense to me at least.

I wear a mouthguard for bench, squats and dead lifts because I have this nasty habbit of grinding my teeth into dust. :( It looks asinine, but I rather keep these pearly whites looking nice.

yea ive heard of dentist telling their weightlifting patients to wear mouthgaurds for this reason.

Hell last time I was doing squats I was thinking of how i hear about ppl doing it, I can certainly see why ppl would wear a mouth piece when DLing or squatting, hell one day i may even give it a try myself. Teeth sure are a valuable asset.

After I wore through that guard, I really noticed that I do it when cycling. I had just ground big holes through the top parts of the guard - I'd really prefer to wear out a piece of plastic than the tops of my teeth. It wasn't really a duable guard, but it was still happening. One of my coworkers had to actually wear a wrestling guard for writing code at his computer, that was pretty funny :D

I had a buddy who used to wear a mouth guard while lifting/cardio. He was/is a MMA guy and says that the more he uses the mouth guard the less of a distraction it is during a fight.

I actually just got one.
I had a weak tooth that I did not know was weak. I was doing DL and cracked it.. I went to the dentist, she said use a mouth guard and you shouldnt have that problem again. So I got one.

We have been through this, you are NOT the rep (s) I am talking about, you actually workout, and right now have better bicep peak and speration than I do, it is more towards those who DO not work out and admit it, yet chose other activities and that is how the cookie crumbles

Although i will watch my back if you are coming to the Arnold :D

Good idea. My dentist tried to sell me a $1,000 mouthpiece contoured to my mouth. Hah, I bought a $1 piece from Wal-Mart instead. Trim off the excess plastic, dunk it in very hot water (stovetop), place it in your mouth to reform, and repeat a few times.

A number of companies offer custom guards for around $100. But if you aren't getting punched in the face then a boil n bite will probably suffice.

I could give a **** if someone's wearing a mouthguard while lifting, or wearing a ****ing headband or whatever. Doesn't effect my workout. The only thing that pisses me off is when people purposely throw the weights onto the floor or **** around and keep you from using equipment. Seems like some people too easily annoyed by others at the gym.

only thing i could think of is that people who train like a boxer someone in mma who wears a mouthguard needs to be accustomed to breathing through their nose instead of their mouths...so this is practice for gametime
