Gym ****** and their dumb ****

Page 2 of 3 First 123 Last

  1. i'd have to say the thing's i've seen in the gym that make me feel strangest would be when i see a man twice my size but to be able to see/tell him eye to eye that he ain't half the man i am, and he knows it.

    another thing would have to be the clannishness of the powerlifting teams. i worked out with one for a while, but they didn't 'accept' me. i didn't wanna talk; i wanted to work. i eventually just went back to my own thing.

    another thing that i've seen that bothers me is the elites being catty when someone new asks for their help/advice. especially when it's the owner of the gym, as he is running a business, and it should be a good business. not to mention, that owner whose stature that kid wants to have, should remember what it was like learning/being weak and help the sprat.


  2. oh yeah, and i hate inzer shirts that are 2 sizes too small. men should wear shirts that when they lift their goddamn arms, you can't see their lil bellybutton.

  3. I saw this middle aged woman yesterday wearing those "message pants" (you know the ones that fathers of 12 year old girls let there daughters wear so child molesters can get all worked up), they were pink sweat pants and they said "boy parking" on the ass.

    I saw a teenage kid sitting on a bench about to do dumbell flyes but, of course becuase he was using way to heavy dumbells (god forbid a kid use light weights and correct form) instead of raising them out to his sides he was moving them back and forth about 2-3 inches! I about **** myself when I saw that one.

    But the granddaddy of them all was this old guy at my old gym and he smelled awful and always wore sweatpants, headband, wristbands, etc. and honestly had his own way of doing every single machine excercise. He would hook up a chain to every cable excercise and just use it in some completely mind boggling way. I still have no idea what the **** he was doing.

    Yes that really bothers me also when "elites" act like asses or in a very condescending fashion towards newer, smaller lifters. I still remember how intimidating it was the first few times I began going to the gym. Luckily there were a couple of "elites" who were a bit sympathetic and gave me some pointers and advice. It was very reassuring to have that advice, which is why whenever I see a kid who looks kinda lost in the weight room i'll give him a few pointers.

  5. The first and last time I saw something to post in this thread was last year. You know how girls/young women wear thongs pulled up kinda high so that you can see them from the back? Well, I saw that on a guy. It kinda made me want to puke. I was really glad I wasn't working on the same equipment he was using that day. It just really freaked me out.

    Wow we had a guy like this years ago what a flashback!

    inzer shirts are made to be tight, if they werent there would be no point in using them, as it wouldnt help you bench

  8. ****ing student tosspots who come in with their hair all long and emo style. They come in with at least two other skinny pals and just laugh at each other as they attempt a 100lb bench press.

    They pull all the dumbells off the rack and leave them on the floor then pick up a 25kg barbell and do those horrid barbell curls where they dont lower their arms past parallel to the floor using their hips to jerk the weight up

  9. people like this is what make the world go round
    we can't all be gym studs, it would lose the magic and mystique

    Personally i dont think the grunt is bad or the occasional scream, its acceptable if I look over and see the grunter/screamer obviously pushing themselves as hard as they can, its when a muscular person is using obviously light weight and screaming like an alter boy getting special bible instruction from a preist ..thats when its a no go.

    Anyone remember the dude from dodgeball with the glasses that read obscure sports quarterly or whatever? That guy is in my gym. Spandex workout gear, fanny pack and headband, even the weird magazines. I see him almost everyday and its like a trainwreck...i cant help but look

  11. i actually train at home these days cause these sorts of stories and so on have pissed me off long enough but when i was at the gym there was one guy who wrapped himself up like a dam mummy with tight knee wraps, lifting belt gloves and stuff on would load the bar up with only about 100-120kg(220) and do the stupidist quater squats in the squat cage barely going down at all and making a fair bit of noise doing it haha. suprise suprise he did not have very big legs either haha

  12. My gym has this guy that is either a military recruiter or some sort of high school coach. He brings 2 or 3 kids in with him that he is "helping" workout. He will load up the bars with weight that he himself works out with and spots the kids while doing their reps. I swear every day I see him and I just want to smack him and let him know that he isn't helping these kids at all. I mean come on, when the spotter is shaking to help you, not only are you teaching bad form, you are doing all the work for them.

  13. The spandex underarmour shirts drive me insane in the membrane. The only they help is to raise the lifters level of gayness.

  14. One of the gyms that i go to has a guy with Richard Simmons like hair and the same little tiny shorts. He never develops any muscle, has bad form and he stares while you train. Makes me laugh!

  15. Unfortunately, I workout at LA fitness in Atlanta, I have nothing but MILF's and the Tool's who support them.
    So thats plastic women in their late thirties or early forties, and Men in their Late fifties and sixties.
    Sucks to be the young guy at 39. I also have the trainers who spend more time on their cell phones than training someone, While making their client exercise on one of those huge balls.

  16. God... Reading this thread makes me want to open a real gym someday... A place of iron... not plastic.

  20. 40-50 year old man, 5 feet tall. 150lbs. Fills the leg press., it took him atleast 20minutes to actually put all the plates on the press... he then walks to the front, buys a muscle milk, chugs it. gets his wife off the treadmill to come watch him. and starts doing ankle , yes ANKLE presses with the rach full (2000+lbs)

    This seems to be a common workout for misinformed oldies.. I've seen at least a couple others doing this too.

  22. Douche bags that stand in front of a bench that they aren't using, say, as they do curls, but then when they are done curling, they put the weights on the floor in front of them, and then don't sit on the bench. They just stand there, blocking the bench.
