I saw a 45+ year old guy doing curls in the squat rack with the bar. O and did I mention he was wearing an Affliction t-shirt? If he could define douche anymore he would have had it written on him somewhere...

How about the guys you see that you think are jacked and then they finally come in wearing shorts and not sweats... and you notice that their thighs are the same size as their forearms...
Also, as mentioned before, backwards hats while lifting.

I don't pay attention to anyone in the gym when I am lifting unless they are in the squat rack or using something I need then I let them know I am working in between their sets whether they like it or not. Whotf cares what someone is wearing, it shows your not concentrating on your workout enough.
What bugs me is when I am at a small gym I sometimes have to use and some woman or skinny marathon runner is angry because I am using all the 45's the useless gym has to offer and they want 2 for the leg press....I say take em in between sets
when I am not using them...and they throw a hissy fit..to which I laugh suggest they do some squats and keep working out.

I LOVE it when skinny little f***s do like a set of crunches and then lift up their shirt while they walk around on their chicken legs looking for who knows what. A male companion maybe?

Another guy is this annoying senile guy who has ****ty ass form on everything and sometimes takes up like 4 pieces of equipment at once doing like circuit training, but not quick circuits.
Every gym has the kids who hog the Bench press every workout, I have those too
The guys who use the squat rack for EVERYTHING. You don't need to do curls in the squat rack, especially since our gym only has ONE.
Biceps dude (as I call him), He trains bi's endlessly every workout.
Tank 1 and 2:
1: Was pretty bulky and BRUTALLY strong, but recently he lost a lot of size and a TON of strength, I think he came off a real suppressive cycle or something
2: 7 feet tall, massive everything probably at least 240 lb, I want him on my side. But he lifts hardly anything, 135 for rows, 90 lb dumbells for bench... I don't even...
There is also this creepy pedo guy who takes his shirt off and does sweaty yoga on the mats people use for warmups and stuff...
There are some cool people at my gym though, but that isn't for this thread I guess.

Tonight... Some god damn tall skinny ass vanilla gorilla and his little troll of a girlfriend were stumbling all over each other. ****ing around, checking her fat ass in the mirror and grabbing her tits, him bent over on top of her. Finally after minutes of this she got on the stair climber. Course then he'd sit the next to her and ****ing flirt...
He finally walks over to the weight section and I **** you not. Less than 3 minutes go by and the ****ing troll comes a hop-skipping-and-a-jumping her ugly ass over to him. They grope for another minute or two. She looks at her fat ass in the mirror 5-6 times and I'm thinking "no bitch, flirting with your bean pole bf and walking 10 steps is not making that go away and even if it did? You're one ugly mother ****er any so don't waste your time". Then they proceed to walk back to the cardio area and hop on stair climbers right next to each other. Thank ****ING god my work out was over cause I seriously wanted to smash both of them in the face with a 45#.
This is the gym, not the ****ing bar!!!

ahh much better

Hmm, the gym can always be an opportunity to witness all types of douchery take place. "Douchery" can have general across-the-board application, but ultimately its a subjective term, for all i know ive come across as a douche to someone somehow, even though I consider myself to be respectful/respectable while at the gym in terms of my habits and behavior, hope not though. We can all agree that awkward or inappropriate forward behavior, or interrupting or disrupting sets etc is whack as ****, but what i find to be equally whack is people that go above n beyond to be unfriendly to you- such as when you simply n respectfully nod to acknowledge another human being making eye contact with you as u pass by to the drinking fountain, n they mean mug you. Doesnt happen much but all i know is im happy when at the gym even if im feeling intense, its my "happy place" where i choose to spend quality time, I feel like other ppl there are my brethren cuz theyre doin the same (ideally), so why act like a disgruntled lil bitch to others? Somtimes douche bag behavior provides a good laugh internally though, eveything in the world can serve a purpose somehow, even douchery...it reminds how NOT to act

Just found this thread...
My two biggest pet peeves at my gym have to be guys who wear hats to the gym, there really isnt any need in my opinion, especially since the workouts they do aren't "hardcore". Another one are the kids at my gym that halfass it on the squat or bench and claim they got a great workout in. I wouldn't have any problem if they did it with full ROM but they go a quarter of the way down and back up, why even unrack the bar?
Thats what I get for going to a "health club" instead of a real gym I guess.

and the suns in your face. Not sure why a hat makes you hardcore anyway...unless its an old hockey mask dripping blood, a viking helmet or a sweet knights helm. Probably not though.

I wear a hat solely to keep the sweat out of my eyes, if it makes me look like a douche... well, I'm a douche without sweat in my eyes

LOL at people on here saying they dont notice any douchery at the gym! I train pretty hard too and in between sets, yep i look around, is entertaining!

Why do people carry a 75 pound bench, but it right in front of the dumbbell rack, so they can do 30 lb flys?
