    Working in on something like the squat is a pain. Unless you have the same general weight used and height, you'll be unracking weight and resetting pins everytime.

    Ya it is generally a pain. Don't really like it training squats with someone else unless we are lifting together.

    I use the squat rack for an hour. Just me and a buddy. But you know, how else am I supposed to hit my squats, then front squats, then good mornings?

Moved his damn bench to an empty spot, n said sorry buddy, I don't have time for this BS!! Ha, am I the d bag or is he?!?! Lol....

    Not sure why he needed to do them there unless super heavy weight. (Side note the gym I am about to go to has benches with rails on it) I would just say you were a bit of a bitch but whatever haha.

    I wouldn't make fun of his workout sheet. It's good to write things down and at least he has a goal/ plan. It may be ****ty but he's working towards his goal

    Did I hear some douche in here makin fun of a workout sheet? What's wrong with tracking progress and following a specific template for training? I mean nearly every pro does it.

    While I was setting up my deadlift, some douche asked if I wanted to compete with him in deadlifting, then he said that I'll beat him because his legs are weak. Lol was this flirting?!

    I agree but its plain ****ing disrespectful to take it for an hour and a half. Should take a half hour maximum! Any longer and you're resting too long lol

    Not everyone has the same goals as you, strength training requires longer rest times for maximum intensity.


    Anyway, if someone is actually using the rack and they got there before I did I have no right to boot them off of it. First come, first served.

    I'm going to take as long as I need. If they want to work in, I never mind, but my real work is done with a barbell. I don't hurry people along when they take an hour. I either work in or wait.

    Sometimes I take 5 minute rests in between sets, I look at my phone or write down stuff in my log. It's what I need to do.

    No I'm definitely right about how disrespectful it is and if you sit there for an hour and someone tells a manager you bet your ass they will tell you to move along. You guys sound like major douchebags. Ironic to find you in the douchebag thread.

    I think we should all respect each other at the gym. I have never gone up to anyone and told them that their form was crap, or if I could cut in. Everyone critiques each other from afar and thats how it should be. Learn a few new things or just mind your own business. I don't go to the gym to make friends or not make friends. At the end of the day, worry about yourself and your progress...

    Remember that at one point in time, you were new to the gym as well. Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle...

    Go screw yourself. I put in more work in using the rack in an hour than you do all week. I have as much right to use the equipment as anyone and will use it in the best way possible. 75% of my total exercises involve heavy weight and a barbell and a large working capacity of heavy sets which takes time. I will use the equipment I pay for however the hell I please. I will let anyone work in on the same exercise as long as they change their own weights and it's reasonable. But there is nothing wrong with using a piece of an equipment for its intended purpose for any period of time and if you think otherwise you're an especially incompetent individual. I work at both of the gyms I workout at and sure as hell wouldn't tell someone to move along for using the equipment properly. And neither would any of my coworkers or managers.

    You make a good point. Ill say that while it sucks to wait, I wait. Only time I say something is like when the guy last week was using two racks. One to curl, and one to shrug.
