    When I am doing circuit or supersets I always time my workouts off peak hours when I know less people will be there. The gym I have near me actually has a machine circuit set up away from everything else with all Nautilus motions. Pretty clever.

    You dont mean to be a dick but you wanna let someone know kindly that you would like to use the equipment and also for you to gauge how much time until its available.

    I work out LATE at night most the year so I dont have to deal with this... during the summer I workout during the mid morning afternoon and most folks still arent in there till the evening when it starts to cool down...

    I hate interruptions or folks on the equipment I need to use, especially when its 2 teenage girls just sitting there laughing at eachother, everytime I hear a girl laugh in the gym it makes me cringe... She needs to be as serious as I am if shes gonna be there, its not a hangout, its a gym.

    I hear ya... I used to wait till around 1am to workout in my college days to avoid people... Gym time is gym time, go there do work, leave so you don't bother others.

    Tiny boys throwing their weights into the rack and then jumping up to make sure everyone just saw that they finished a set AND/OR slamming the machines with cables and plates between each rep. And honestly I'd say the guy who brings a cloud of axe body spray with him around the gym is pretty awful too...

    When I'm doing a heavy week, I don't mind as much, since I rest quite a bit between sets. During high intensity week, though, I time my workouts, so I hate the interruptions, as well.

    And yeah, whether it's young girls or stupid teenage boys in a group of 5, it drives me nuts. If they're in my way, I'll usually ask if I can work in (or if they're d-bags, I'll just tell them I'm going to). One of the perks to looking bigger and intimidating (my awesome beard receives most of the credit for this).

    We have the rubber-coated DBs and the 70's, 80's and 100's are all either both missing coating, or at least one is. It makes it incredibly difficult to progress properly when doing DB work; jumping from 65 to 75 isn't always going to work.

    The trainer had some guy with the 100's, walking them from end to end of the gym, 2 nights ago. He wasn't doing lunges, or anything, but he'd grunt the whole time he walked with them. I almost told him that the 95's weigh more than the 100's since they're missing the coating, but I just passed on that one. Luckily, since they were missing the rubber, it didn't matter, but he would just throw them at the end, rather than take the effort to do a quarter-squat and place them down. D-bag.

    Then we've got our good friend who I call "quarter-rep" at the gym. The kid is in decent shape, but he'll load things with absurd amounts of weight and not even get halfway through the ROM. I thought, at first, that maybe he was just doing this on certain lifts for a period of time to increase strength (purposely doing partials), but I've confirmed this is most certainly not the case. He's the kid who loads 4 plates on the squat rack, barely gets a bend in his knees and then claims he squats 405.

    *sigh*

    I don't think that most people realize how terribly they treat the equipment. Or they just don't care... Holding back the urge to let people know that they aren't the only ones that have to use the equipment is a daily struggle. I try to treat all the stuff like it's mine and it gets to me when others don't have the common courtesy to do the same. My fiance and I were talking last night and we determined that for the most part manners have become a nonexistent practice. Maybe I've just worked in retail too long...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. If I'm at a station, I typically put the plates all away where they belong if someone did it wrong. Then again, my closet is also organized by color...*sigh* My mother did a number on me...lol

    All my dress shirts must face the same direction towards the door. Each shelf is in descending order from upper body/top layer to lower body/inner layer.

    I, too, blame my mother. God bless her wonderful soul.

    I saw the craziest thing the other day. This dude in between sets would pretend he was a short stop.
    He would get in a short stop stance pounding his fist into his imaginery glove, with intensity all about him like hes in
    the 7th game of the world series.
    Then he squats down and imagines to field a fast ball grounder hit right to him. He fields it makes an exagerated play "like hes throwin someone out at first"
    or the other side of the gym, depends on how you see it I guess.
    This dude was making all kinds of plays. Cathing line drives and throwin them out at home. Fieldin grounders and turnin doubles, Man He Coudl Play!
    The whole time hes like checkin himself in the mirrors, maybe reviewing his form or maybe he just reyi likes how he looks playing imaginery baseball, I dont know.
    Maybe if I see him again I'll see if he wants me to hit some imaginery balls to him. He probably say something like "Yeah, that would be cool, thanks."
    I never seen nothin like it, right between two benches in front of the dumbell rack.

    How about the people who think they are god's gift to the gym, complaining about everything ppl do do wrong at the gym on these forums... Complaining about people who are most likely new to the gym just makes you sound like a jackass fyi

    And I'm not referring to the OP, those are annoying gotta go with "b" there.

    I hear ya. I dont like focusing on negative topics of conversation but this had my curiosity. As for the new-guy mistakes, typing up a storm on a forum doesnt accomplish much. Id like to think I do a good job in helping educate them to make improvements. But sometimes you just wanna go AHHHHH!!!

    lol for sure. I totally agree with your posts on here, but some of the other people just need to settle down. Pretty much everyone is at gym to get in shape, which I gotta respect, even if they aren't doing everything right I know they are they trying to better themselves. I know some of my friends who don't workout say they don't like going to gym because they are worried how they look to the in-shape people, and a couple of people in this thread made me think of that.

    But the mirror flexers and people taking over 4 pieces can be very annoying!!

    Ive heard that. I've always told friends that people look more to see that your consistent and trying to make progress and better yourself and not so much how you look. No one was born with 22" guns at 8%, they had to started from ground zero too...except Chuck Norris.

    I try to be considerate when utilizing mirrors. You know, hit a front double bicep right behind a guy who feeling self conscious about his stickly arms. Might get in the way of some equipment too.

    There was a new kid who came to my gym this week. He was probably 15. The first thing he did was dumbell curls. That was all he did for 30 minutes then left. He was there again today and I asked him if he wanted to do some squats with me. He said no because he was only trying to get his arms big.

    I'd have to say A. It's annoying to hear it and you can't help but look at the grunter, only to get more annoyed at how he looks like while grunting.

    I just grunted pretty badly at the gym. If you got a problem, you can eat my butthole, after I get done with my DC set of squats with 425 for 15 :-D

    Nothing, and I mean, NOTHING pisses me off more than the guys giving ****ty advice thinking they are the sh!t, when in reality all they did was read a couple of issues of Men's Health...

    The guy that is barely 160lbs telling the guy that's 135lbs "yeah bro, you need this, this, and that". Or "this is how you're supposed to do this exercise" and that being completely wrong advice. That just pisses me the **** off. Like one guy, wearing a sweet cutoff v-neck, who is telling his "brah" that for his bench press he should "bounce" the weight off his chest and give it a little bump with the chest, and take his back off the bench a bit when he does this. ARE YOU FKING KIDDING ME?!

    Anyways... Rant done.

    As far as asking how many sets, I gotta say, I do that, my workout is a DC workout so the cadence and the sequence of the exercises is very important, so I do ask just so I can gauge where I'm at.

    Nothing annoys me more. Then the skinnest kid in the gym who. Seems to think hes the biggest there and walks around with the imagery sheep under his arms. Whos as rude as hell. With the biggest ego. And when ur lifting will walk in the way of the mirror and start flexing his 5 inch bie and looking to make sure every one can see. The lifts just the bar and screams the gym down ( rant over )

    I don't mind the dudes that constantly check their abs in the mirrors...but don't do it in my field of view when I am in the middle of a squat set. I have to cancel the set because it's impossible to concentrate while the "Situation" show is going on. Front, sides, and then the Zoolander face, *$&^ dude you look ridiculous.

    The other thing that makes me bonkers are the dudes that drop the barbell on the floor after the last 1/2 rep of deadlifts, and then follow up with a giant hooting grunt. I have to stop myself from telling them that lowering the bar to the floor is part of the rep.

    ^this^... I had worked for several years as an ACSM certified trainer and couldn't believe how many club members would offer unsolicited advice to other members, typically female. I would occasionally take them aside and kindly inform them that any injuries that result from their "advice" can land them in a world of problems. It was a kind way to asking them to stop sexually harassing female guest who were CLEARLY uncomfortable with their advances under the guise of advice.
