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.

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.

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...........

Perception is there, but not necessarily.
In hell professional gyms, the douche bag effect doesn't really occur because there are plenty of weights and racks.
But in some gyms like the university gyms, u do tend to get very inconsiderate dickheads who just socialize and do stupid things and this has a major effect when there is limited equipment.
A good example is the bench press. for example, there are two training partners who do 10 sets each.. with long untimed breaks where they jsut chat away....

there's a couple old guys who fall asleep on the machines in between their sets.
i should mention as well, in my earlier post, about the guy doing curls, he's italian and says "yo" a lot. every time i pass him, i start singing "eye of the tiger". i think he hates me.
the only guys that really bother me, are the "flex up guys". you know, the ones who stalk you around the gym, use equipment right next to you, and flex when you look their way. i asked one of them for their number once, and he's left me alone since then.

Douche bags are everywhere it's just at the gym your stuck with them while they lift. But then you got the chicks
Good reason for cardio.

exactly, same problem here. I go to the uni gym and while there is a group of dudes who are regulars, there are heaps of 1 Session Wonders doing exactly that. But I only have a problem if they cause some form of interference with my workout (which they do by hogging the benches, and just taking heaps of free weights when they can only use 2 at a time).

I hate guys that load up the weight and just have the most atrocious form you've ever seen, and they get up like flexin and lookin around with a hard look on their face.
