6 Things That Describe Your Post-Workout Fitness Aroma

Congratulations. You worked hard to earn that un-fresh, stank feeling — those sweaty workouts that lead to temporary body odor. Do you mind if I take a few moments to describe you?


1.  You smell like a muskrat’s ass breaded in recycled llama hairs, then fried over hot coals.

2. Your armpits are more foul than a half-gallon of fermented warthog juice.

3. You smell like wet laundry inside a washing machine that somebody forgot for a week.

4. Your body funk is more offensive than 10,000 bags of burnt microwave popcorn.

5. The post-workout ring around your bathtub has the odor of re-fried toe jam particles.

6. You smell like burnt enchiladas served on a wet dog’s back.

It’s take a special kind of person to achieve such an impressive level of fitness aroma. You ought to be damn proud. Keep up the good work.

    I think I like #4.
    I was just thinking this morning about how I dated a boy in 7th grade and the way he smelled after football practice was everything you just said combined. And he was only 12! Do I have this to look forward to with my son? I can’t imagine my daughter ever smelling bad.

      I have been inside the football players’ locker room repeatedly (…as a cheerleader, we were responsible for decorating their lockers after they finished practice, the night before home games). The smell is everything you could imagine and much worse. Yes, your son will have a similar funk about him.

  11. All I am saying is that I get a lot of clearance and room to roam when I grocery shop post workout. My stank tactics are working wonders! I think I can work the angle to get cuts in line.

    HaHa – all of these are so true!! This was pretty much my sister-in-law and I this past week. We would finish our workout and then have to take the elevator up to our room and then back down to the pool for hours – we tried to make sure no one had to share the elevator with us because we were ripe by the time we finally got around to showering for the day!!!
