    One day I came into the gym and they were handing out cake.... let me repeat that, they were handing out FCUKING CAKE. I swear they want you to be fat, like it increases their profit margin or something.
    A-f'in-men brother. Dumbest sh1t I've seen all year. A box of nondescript donuts indelibly perched atop a c0cktail,(<< nothing dirty or offensive about this word btw), height table, not three feet from the low-impact cardio equipment and motivational fitness poster. Irony abounds.

    ...And Smith Machine spot requests. Like, seriously dude?!?

    what about those lard farmers that need spotters to do walking lunges?

    Or use leaking sand-filled dumbells?

    or have mad gay obsessions with guys sporting oversized lats?

    Fkg fruitcakes!

    You're probably right. Like I am the douchebag who keeps getting in the way while these trainers have clients standing next to a bench doing arm curls/tricep presses...

    I saw a guy yesterday ask a trainer if they were using a bench, which they obviously were not, and before the trainer could answer another guy said "hell they are hardly using the weight they got." I LOL'd...

    Had a kid who was (badly) attempting vertical rows next to me doing cable high rows (Somehow managing to get his back moving ~60 degrees his form was so bad) with a 40lb bar telling me that vertical rows are better for building upper back muscles than the 260lb high rows I was doing - immediately after 5 sets of db rows with 110lb dbs.

    I gave him the, "WTF" eyebrow raise before shaking my head and popping my headphones back in. Wasn't even worth my time.

    Douchebag.

    Can't remember if we mentioned this guy, but the guy who wants to run from machine to machine putting 26 44lb plates on everything which he ferries from the leg press machine to the calf raise machine etc and all you ever see him doing is carrying plates around and never actually using the machines he's on.

    This guy at my gym looks like he's about 140lbs soaking wet and kept a straight face loading up >880lbs on the leg press machine. Then he got pissy because a much bigger guy who shall remain nameless took 8 of his 44 lb plates away from him while he was ferrying them from machine to machine despite him having a cry and told him if he wanted he'd help him carry the plates from machine to machine so long as he pulled off one 90 degree leg press with the ~600lbs that was left on the machine, to whit the reply was, "Fine have them".

    IT killed me.

    yeah, i hate those guys who try to put the most weight they can on stuff.

    Like yesterday this douche put like 10 45 on hack squat machine, skinny dude, and then is there for like 10 minutes and then does 1 half ass rep, skinny skinyy legs.

    hey gang. bumping this. i have some good ones.
    i normally lift at home but am using a commercial gym this week.
    today i was repping 245 bench (deload) next to some guy about my size repping 95....which after many many sets he decided to kickbox in the mirror.
    yesterday, i'm deadlifting 405 next to some guy doing wrist curls. guess whos forearms were bigger.
    the tag-team guys, a bit larger than me, squat rack curling with a whopping 65. spotting eachother.
    the line formed in front of the nautilis ab machine.
    90lb quarter smith machine "squats"

    omg really. i'm only 186 and not big, but on every freeweight and machine i noticed guys with 20lbs more than me repping at 50% of my working weight. if you're not going to use it, give me those 20lbs, i need them! haha

    I hate the ones that come up to you and ask, "What kind of steroids are you taking"...then insists that you must be taking something and does everything he can to get answers out of you. Then even sends his friend (or as they probably call it BFF) over and asks the same damn questions. Then a week later, everyone in the gym has been told by some dip**** that you told him about the massive steroid cycle you are on. lol and I'm not even big but still get questioned

    My gym isn't as bad as some of the ones you guys work out it sounds like. I try to go up after 7:30 that seems to clear out alot of the crowd working out right after work is just insane you can't get to anything.

    Ha there was one of those 'dance between sets guy' at my gym several months back...but he quite possibly was literally mentally slightly retarded so maybe that was why

    I'm with ya Cody. I always hit up the gym around 7:30 or 8pm. Everyone's leaving or about to leave. The people who come in at that point are usually fairly serious about what they're doing. Honestly though, I really haven't come across many douchebags. Maybe a couple guys who thought they were Gods gift to the human race. But that's about it. I usually have my game face on, so not many people talk to me.

    a guy at my gym probably 160lbs. dripping wet always walks up to the bench press and puts on 295lbs. No warm up or anything. Lifts it off the rack and only lowers it about two or three inches, barely even unlocking his elbows and re-racks it. Paces around the bench a couple times, puts on ten more pounds and does the exact same thing. I've thought about walking up to him and asking if he wants me to show him how to do it and rep it out about 7 times. LOL.

    ^^Reminds me of those guys that use so much momentum during a lift that the lift becomes completely pointless. They're just burning calories at that point. Like a guy doing a barbell curl who swings his whole body trying to get every rep up. I mean, sure I could understand if you get to the last rep and you want to squeeze one more out cause you ain't got no one there to help with any forced reps. Even then, you don't need to turn your body into slingshot to get it up. Stupid...
