  1. My Gym Rules


    Remember when all gyms used to be hardcore...

    1. Loud guttural noises are mandatory on the last rep of the last set...

    2. Music must be aggressive and loud, by order of management.

    3. Females must overgo a visual inspection in order to be able to wear spandex. :chick:

    4. Females must overgo a visual inspection in order to able to forgo wearing spandex. (Male members will not be permitted to wear spandex)

    5. Members to administer physical punishment to anyone using the squatting cage for curls, failure to do so will result in physical punishment..

    6. No whining...

    7. Those who take offence to loud aggressive behavior are encouraged to shut the fug up and mine there own business. Failure to comply will result in physical punishment.

    8. Equipment must be shared, using the equipment as a place to rest in between sets is not permitted should a conflict ensue priority will go to the one expending the most effort or in the case of spandex wearing females upon the fullmess of her posterior.

    9. Stay the fug out of my way.

    10. No Whinning!!

    11. Conversations that do not encorporate the involvement of spandex wearing female members (inspected) in extracuricular activity are to be kept to a minimum.

    12. Weights will be stored in an orderly fashion to permit easy access, don't mix up the fuggin weights.

    13. Male members reserve the right to carefully observe spandex wearing females (inspected) particularly when using the leg curl which will be placed in the center of the weight room at all times.

    14. All members must squat unless they provide a note from their doctor.

    15. Pornography is allowed in the cardio room...


  2. hahahaha...badass...repped...

  3. Thumbs up


    haha nice set of rules i like some of them.

  4. The biggest rule of the gym I go to is:

    Sweating is optional, but a Towel is mandatory.

    What the Heck? It should be the opposite, IMO. If you are going to the gym to work out, you go to gym to sweat your friggin' a$$ off! It should not be an option. It should be mandatory. Screw the towel!
  5. Some more....


    16. No bringing big bags of stupid gear onto the floor to put in everyone's way

    17. No bringing in your own ghetto blaster and playing 50 Cent while gym already has its own music

    18. Deodorant is a must. No one wants to smell your skank azz.

    19. No lingering in the lockerroom in underwear, or nothing, or doing exercise of any kind in the steam or locker room. Period.

  6. 20. No FLIP FLOPS!!

    Had enough burning/itching feet to last a lifetime.

    My problem is with people using it and we have to wait untill there done to use the cage... I mean if you can curl it you should be able to lift it off the ground.

  11. Come to train, not to talk. It's just a madder of time before they open up coffee stands and put some up a freakin' couch. Seriously, some guys literally go to the gym to talk.

    Here's another from Mark Rippetoe... if your gym doesn't allow chalk, it's time to find a new gym

  12. good sh1t.

    what if i feel the need to throw a 45lb plate or other sized weight across the gym??? .....felt like that today.

  13. Word!

    Would you believe this...my gym has Pizza Mondays. Imagine that? You're sweating your ass off on the elliptical or whatever, and in comes delivery boy with 15 pizzas. Lays them out on a table, and all these fat guys and women come over and start snarfing them down.

    What's next? Heroine Fridays at Betty Ford? And no, no chalk allowed there either. It's Planet Fitness, and I"m quitting. Looking to actually open my own gym. It seems all the places are going the soft route lately, no grunting, no dumbbells over 70 lbs....WTF??

  14. Oh, and PistonPump....more power to ya. 45's make great frisbees. Best when caught between teeth.

    I HAAAAATE that. There is this group of about 5 older guys at my gym and they really just come to the gym to talk and lift some weights in between conversation. They might as well just put a bar in the corner and make it a damn social hour.

    I actually saw this dumb woman talking on her bluetooth while working out....seriously??

    Even worse, how about the naked old dudes in the locker room who seeminly strip down to their bare arses just to get into a conversation. The trademark 1 foot on the bench, like a naked Captain Morgan, is usually apparant. I vividly (yes VIVIDLY... unfortunately) recall the locker room at the YMCA crawling with naked old dudes EVERYTIME I went in there. There's no joke here, they were always there... and always naked... and... always TALKIN! Man... some people these days!

  18. I don't curl in the squat rack if there's anyone needing it for squatting. Just like I don't use the bench on the flat bench for other exercises if someone wants to bench. I just have issues with people that think a piece of equipment is off limits unless you're doing a specfic lift.

    I accept the fact that there will be nakedness in the locker room. When I change I do it quickly and as discreet as possible because I understand that other dudes don't want to see other dudes naked. Why do old dudes just walk around naked,shave at the sink naked, or shower with the certain wide open. Why? Maybe at that age you just don't give a crap...haha.

    I know I do some unusual exercises on different pieces of equipment but yah recognize the priority of the type of lifts the equipment is used for. You have to understand that the gym we currently frequent is full of munchkins who don't squat and use the cage for all kinds of munchkin tom foolery!!

    It gets a little frustrating. Large groups of munchkins all watching, milling about not having a clue what there doing. ..

    Incidently if the gym doesn't allow chalk, I would just laugh in there face and walk out... damn what is this world coming to when they disallow such an important thing as chalk.

  21. I'm loving some of these rules!

    There is some young guy, possibly in high school, and he's as scrawny as can be, but grunts, growls, and curses at the top of his lungs when he's hardly lifting much weight. Everyone stops and stares at him, and several people feel like just walking up and punching him out.

    Aw man, you got to give it up for a guy who puts out though. Some guys do "make noise" for attention, which is pathetic, but letting out some motivation often brings up your intensity. I train in my garage currently, but I'm constantly yelling to raise my intensity before a lift(or during). Otherwise you'd be holding back! An ideal gym, in my opinion, would have the music loud enough to serve as a decent blanket to cover the occasional bout of intensity. In a way it also inspires me when I see someone giving it their all and holding no regards to what they look like.

    Couldn't agree more... sometimes it just has to come out..

  24. things i hate about my gym seem to be the same as the one everyone hates about their own gyms

    im nto a fan of the people who grunt and curse so loud that i hear it over my ipod when im standing on the other side of the gym i find it very distracting a little grunt is ok but when it sounds like your squeezing a watermelon out of your pee hole thats a whole different story

  25. not sure if this has been said but a rule i would add would be no cell phones...i ****ing go ape **** when jackasses sit there do one set then get on their phone for 15mins between sets ...it especially pisses me off when their in the way...which the usually are

    Again there are times well primal yells are necessary... Powerlifters or lifters trying to get very heavy weight often need the boost... some people do it to try to impress that is not so good, but some just can't help it. I am sort of in between you might here a loud grunt on the last rep of the last set of squats. I like a hard core gym so I have to allow hardcore people to be just that... It used to be there was a lot of primodial grunting was done in the gym and then women starting coming and saying "I don't like that" that's why in my preferred training environment I would rather see the sensitive people train somewhere else and leave the animals alone..

  27. 21) Rule: Quit taking PH's and your workout routines is chest/bi....chest/bi....bi/tri....chest. (I swear, i dont think anyone squats heavy anymore). If i see someone squatting heaving, i have to look twice to make sure. Lifting has become a joke...period

    Yes squatting heavy takes gutts and extreme effort there is too many people who are not committed to the level they need to be to be effective in this sport.

    my local gym has very very few power lifter and the people i tend to see grunting are the little guys most of the bigger guys in my gym are usually quiet as hell

    funny thing is the little guys are also the ones who leave plates on the bar/machines this erks the **** out of me. like the one time a saw a pretty good size guy load up the sled with as many plates as possible and then when he was done he just got up and walked off for some reason i felt compelled to say as he walked by "you can put all that weight on but you cant pu the plates back where they belong" he took a double take (im in decent shape but not huge and cut by any means) and he walked back and took the plates off and put them in the proper storage area

    that and the people who dont put the DB's back in the rite slot annoy the hell out of me if you can lift the weight you should be able to put the weight back where it belongs so the next person doesnt have to clean up after you

    Well I gotta agree with you there, put the weights back and put them in the proper place and order.
