Everyone here is always talking about douche bags at their gym... What do you guys think makes a douche bag at their gym....
I got 1 wearing sunglasses inside the gym
Not being me.
How many of these type of threads are you going to make?
This sort of thing needs to be moved to the General Chat Section.
I finally gave up on my amazing University Gym because it was so douchebag/fratted out that I could barely stand it. Want to see the worst of working out...come on by. haha I made my own gym ina garage made of corregated tin and love it moe than anything. :squat:
LOL ...Ozarka....BEST ANSWER EVER
there's a guy that will get upset if you go to the DB rack and get in between him and the mirror. even if the DB you want is right in front of him. doesn't help he's 10 feet away from the mirror.
he also does heavy cheat curls using his back, uses 25 pound dumbells, and grunts like a llama in heat.
squatting in the curl rack is what he will upgrade himself to once he becomes less of a douche.
this so aint for the trianing forum.
But douchebags.. oh damn, where do i start. I hate anyone inconsiderate at the gym.
Persons who hog the squat rack or bench doing 10 sets with 3 - 5 min rests in between.
Persons who stand too close to the weights rack
Persons who get in the way
Training partners who just sit or stand in front of the machine and chat chat chat.
I get so angry when the gym gets crowded too.
There are no real weirdos at my gym though, i.e people who wear sunglasses or anything else retarded.
It seems like it is all perception.. I am sure those people who you think are D-bags, prob look at you like "look at this D-Bag" lol
I been working out in the same gym for 3+ years, at the same time, and have never talked to one person.. I put my ear buds in, and try to avoid looking at people all together.
Heads down, thumbs up..i used to love that game.:donut:
We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.
but i just wanted to know if, what things are douchy, so i wont be one, get it lol
i love gym douche bag threads! I just started a new gym where the 'big guys' lift..or so i heard..i was at my other gym for over 3 yrs and it was relatively douchbag free. the new gym however...full-o-douchebags...they should change the name.. "douchebag fitness". it would have kept me from joining.
Word of advice for any gym owners out there or those aspiring to own a gym...if your DB's go past 120 don't feel the need to come up to someone actually using them and tell them not to drop the weights to hard..or complain when a 120 db makes a noise when it hits the ground...and don't get me started on deadlifts!!! i put 405 on the bar and immediately had some gym "trainer guy" come over and comment on dropping the weight. So I said no problem and put another plate on...douches!!!!!!!
super douchbag is "rub your girlfriend's shoulders guy"...I have a terd at my gym who hogs equipment while fondling his girlfriend and chatting with other 'big guys'. the other day i interrupted his quality time and asked if he was finished. Before i was finished asking he got all pissy and blurted out had 3 sets left. I just looked at him..then at his gym skank and said...well get friggin going then! I'm not making friends at my new gym.. come to think of it...Maybe I'm the douche...but i put all my weights back down to the last plate..and that sucks leg pressing...but i do it...I wipe down my equipment...don't hog equipment and stay out the way
long post...i was venting...........
