    Im not a huge guy or anything but im not a gym douche either. There is this older dude who is big in all the right ways but he likes to always want to use the power rack im on when there is a identical one right next to it. He does these quarter dead lifts with a **** ton of weight and then asks if he can use some of my plates......wtf, walk around the gym and find some you half DLing monster!
    Then there are dudes who do nothing but chat, curl, machine press with a partner? ! I don't get it, I wish I had a spotter but not to stand around and bs with.

    Also, underpants go on before socks.
    Lmfao! I hate the guys that stretch naked after showering.. REALLY??!!

    I was doin some 10x10 bicep and tricep work a couple days ago. This dude comes up to the pressdown stack next to mine. He's wearing jeans, boots, and a beater. I'm doing half the stack cuz I'm goin 10x10. He walks up, looks at my stack, looks at me, back at the stack, and proceeds to drop his pin to the bottom of the stack. He then proceeds to push his elbows out to the side like some sort of retarded bird/dinosaur and move the stack about 5 inches in each direction for 8 reps, again looking at me as he finished.

    Here I am elbows locked to my sides completing a full range of motion. Like come on buddy if today was heavy day I'd have no problem doing the whole stack the CORRECT way, don't act so tough.

    By his third set I had to ask him "how's that shoulder workout goin?"

    I hate the New-Years Resolution-ers. I go to a small gym as it is (although this rule applies at EVERY gym I've ever been to), and every January to mid-February, the gym is PACKED with overweight, out-of-shape people that don't really want to workout. I can't wait until March when they all stop coming, so I can finally have my gym back!

    I try not to complain too much, usually because it makes me rage a little inside.
    Today was something else though.

    The gym is packed (right after work + new years res) and 3 kids take up a bench to do homework. I'm not kidding. They had pens, paper, book, back pack, etc. like it was a place to hang out at.

    give them a math test:

    Boy A weighs 150pounds.
    Water weighs 8pounds/gallon.
    There are 4 quarts in a gallon.
    The human body holds roughly 5 quarts of blood, and blood weighs about the same as water.
    How much does boy A weigh after he loses 3 quarts of blood?

    How about the guys that work at the gym, who don't have the curtisy to re rack there weights. I spend more time doing that then lifting.

    I also hate when the dumbbells are hopelessly out of order, where EVERY weight is in the wrong place! I don't understand why it's so hard to simply put the weights back where they got them. Then, they'd never get out of order in the first place! Then my OCD strikes again, and I HAVE to re-rack them, and I don't even work there! AAARRRGGGHHH!

    The...
    Hey I'm using that
    People hogging machines to sit..
    People on the phone while saying hey I'm using that, with no weight racked on it.
    Two injurys
    People not using the cable machines, but holding onto the handle while talking.
    And max rack to sleep in.....

    All this while a remodel and space being limited for the day....

    I've been a member of 4 gyms, 3 popular ones. One thing I never understood is every gym employee I have met (inc trainers, receptionist, cleaners) is either obese (majority) or just not in decent shape whatsoever, bar 1 trainer in my current gym.

    I mean I could care less about who goes to the gym, its just amazing how these people working in a gym having a free membership, does not give them enough incentive to even step foot in the weight room or just not bother with a routine.

    Mmmmm...clams....

    But seriously I forgot all about the B.O. issue until you brought this up! From what I've seen (smelled) the military gyms I go to on post are WORSE per capita than like Gold's or World's or any big time gym. It's like these guys just came out of the field for a week and decided to go to the gym instead of going home to shower. You know it's bad if there is a specific racquetball court that always smells like a skunk's taint.

    And this is sort of on that subject (that may make some of you guys nauseous....hehehe) - so in the Army you have to hold your buddy's feet while we do situps on the PT test. It's bad when you can smell people's feet. But THE worst was 4 years ago (yea I still remember it) there was a really attractive female that was behind me, so I had to hold her feet. All I could smell was dirty VAG!!! I had to breathe in and out of my mouth into my shoulder to keep from puking!
    IN 27 YEARS I'VE NEVER GONE 0-4 IN WILDCARD WEEKEND!!!
    until now. yup I put money on every game too. excuse me while i go drink myself smart.

    Her name wasn't Megan was it, if so, we need to talk lol...

    But something I have never understood was when people smoke a pack in there cars, windows up and then come in, i think them people need to be deloused prior to checking in.

    Speaking of leaving weights out, WTF is up with the people that work that doing it. I don't get paid to put YOUR *#(# away, You get paid to put mine away, if i was that guy that left it out. Next time I put employees crap away, they owe me a chicken. A WHOLE CHICKEN

    That reminds me of my ARMY days---I was in the gym squatting and this fat National Guard guy tried to bust my b@##S about not going down far enough when I was on my 6 or 7th set. I told him that I didn't want to take his advice because I might end up looking like him!!! He was a fat guy with a beer gut!!!

    I've often wondered the same thing, and the only conclusion I've been able to come to is that they don't want you to see them cry about how ****ty their workout is.

    People not using the cable machines, but holding onto the handle while talking.
    And max rack to sleep in.....

    Heh, the other day I was about do to some dips. There was a lady standing to the side of it screwing with her ipod or whatever. I think "oh, she's just getting her music ready, it's open". I walk up with a db, slap it between my legs and tart doing dips. Then I notice she's standing there staring at me agasp saying something. I can't hear what since I have headphones in. So I just say, just a minute(wanting to get my 8 reps in) and she just walks off huffy.

    FU lady. Use it or lose it. Standing by a machine does not mean it's yours.

    I live in an upscale area, and at my gym started noticing this group of like 3-4 dudes who come in looking like their trying to act like their straight outta Compton . One of them is this white dude who had his shorts so far below his ass they were damn near at his shoes with his boxers or whatever the **** he had on showing.

    Seriously? People just glare at them and it's kinda funny as they seem to notice it as I gave the one dude a look when I was on the squat machine, and you can see them try to lift heavier weights than they can all flailing around for a few reps if their lucky

    Guys who act like they have a problem with people complaining about people in the gym, and claim they don't have time to worry about people like that at the gym, yet they still take the time to click into the forum and try to make themselves look good.
