    I lift in my shed, alone, and I find myself grunting or whatever towards the end of my deadlifts. I'm not sure who I would be seeking attention from when there's noone else around? It just started happening when I started lifting heavier shit. I guess in my case it's ok until the police arrive due to some form of complaint.

    I also find my mouth starts moving on it's own undoubtedly making me look f*cking ridiculous, maybe it's my subconscious counter so I don't attract any attention in my empty shed.
    For a body like this, call 1300 DOMINOS

I think I would make an effort to silence somewhat if I was in a gym.

    Im the same and always remember those simple rules, i concentrate on my breathing and push the air out as im pushing or pulling the weight, this turns into a grunt on squats and deads. The missus and daughter come and shut the door of the garage beacause apparently its annoying

    I think grunting is fine, and if you arent making some kind of noise its my oppinon that you arent trying as hard as you could be. I think the annoying thing is how loud people grunt and for what they are doing.

    I grunt on most of my work sets for the last 2-3 reps. Its not loud and you probably wouldnt hear it if you were more than 5m away from me.

    I have some annoying people at my gym that grunt for everything. There is one guy that you can hear over the other side of the weights room, the worst is when he does bodyweight lunges. Its annoying not because of the fact he is grunting, but how loud it is.
