Count them and add them up. Rocket science.

2 more is the only count you ever make in the gym - then add one.

If you have thick grips on the dumbells at your gym then cancel your membership. You will never get big and strong and be able to defend yourself against KFC.

i dont count. i have a general idea of where im at and just push it until i can't lift it another inch. My last few reps are always very tough and the last one is probably wouldn;t even make it without a little help from a spotter. This method of pushing yourself to the limit works well for me. Only time I ever kept track of stuff is when I tried to get to 100 pushups in a row. I got pretty close before I got tired of doing pushups every day and moved on to something else

I don't feel the need to keep track.

Not a counter.  But prefer high reps over low reps.

Every now and then will go into super high rep mode and count minutes tho.  2 minutes of reps.

They arent. However, you rarely see the weed smoking, gambling, alcholic from the strip club at the gym the next day......

those are all night activities and I drink twice a week at the most. I was all county in soccer and hockey in high school and had scholarships to play at many different schools. Done tooting my own horn. Don't judge a degenerate by its cover is the moral of the story

hockey....degenerate side got the best of me and i quit after the first semester. It sucked having to practice at 11pm at night few time each week and the road trips though  fun, i always felt like I missing some great party and a chance at hooking up with a new babe. I knew I wasn't going pro and would rather just play intramural sports and live the life of a normal college student.

So they could be mutually exclusive.......
