  1. No "curls in the squat rack" option?

    Question is invalid.


  2. I hate it when people squat in the curl rack!

    its not to rush the person (in my case), I just wanna know if I should go do another exercise. if somebody will be spending 5-10 mins on a piece of equipment and its too much of a hassle to work in, might as well not sit around waiting for that to happen, and miss out on another piece of equipment (my gym sucks).

  4. I don't have a problem with the guys flexing but I can't stand the people doing circuits hogging up like four things then act so surprised when u jump on their sh*t

    And leave a lil something at each piece of equip to mark their territory.

    That really annoys the crap out of me too!

  7. I understand...
    I'll take note of the how many sets you have left and be a bit more friendlier next time.

    Yeah, I'm the same way. And I, too, tell people it's no rush. But most people have a set workout of X number of sets, so I just want to know if I caught them at the start or the finish.

    My gym is very small and they've recently brought on a 2nd trainer. Both of these guys are cross-fit nuts (which is fine; to each his own), but they train ALL of their clients that way. So, what the result is, now, is not one, but two trainers at the exact same time running the exact same type of workouts, which results in 2 clients at 4-8 stations. Couple that with the fact that one guy trains 2-3 kids, together, so they all do the same thing at the same time.

    My gym also only has 3 olympic bars - 1 in the squat/curl (lol) rack, 1 on the flat bench, 1 on the incline bench. That is it and there are no spares. There is, however, a barbell that has only a foot of space on each end and probably weighs 30 pounds or so. The trainers, now, have decided to randomly take an olympic bar and keep it in their little station (filled with bands, balance balls and like 2 kettle bells), along with a ton of plates (of which, you guessed it, the gym has very few of). So, I get in to do my workout, or move to a station only to find no bar and I have to walk all over the place in search of it. I'll strip their weights off of it and move it, too. What's frustrating is that they're very rarely using it, but they never put it away. They also don't re-rack the plates and sometimes the DBs.

    Oh, and people have been stealing the clips, so we literally only have 4, now (enough for 2 bars).



    I kind of hate my gym. lol

    Close to it, lol. I pay $20/month and that includes unlimited tanning. It's also only 3 minutes to my house and open 24/7/365.

    Plus, I'm locked into another year of the contract that I'd have to pay to break unless I move 25+ miles from here. In all honesty, I didn't expect to be living down here more than a year and it's been just over 2, already.

    I got ya. Well if it's 24 hrs, that's great. My gym is too. But those 2 trainers can't be hogging all the equipment all the time then. I hear u on the distance too. I makes a huge difference when u live close.

    Quickly whip my head in his direction and snap "Protein!" then walk away humored yet aggravated he didnt question my diet.

    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.

  17. I don't have a prob with the circuit trainers but don't get upset when I work in ya know

  18. I forgot how much i dislike the "All you" phrase until today when I said it.

  19. Haha thats an oldie but goodie

  20. 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.

  22. 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*
