    Crossfitters in commercial gym who take up nearly ever squat rack and barbell for 30 minutes and only spend about 45 seconds using each.

    Psuedo-Jersian shore dudes wearing shirts cut from the armpit to the hip curling in the squat rack???




    Funny I was just thinking of this the other day and I cannot tell a lie. That was me when I was a teenager and now when I see it it pisses me off so bad lol it's usually the smallest kids in the gym too

    I wish I had some of you guys in my gym to correct my form. If it makes me a more efficient lifter/ less likely to injury, then hurt my feelings. Please?

    No sadly I would just cut up an old t shirt...glad I grew out of that "look at me" stage after I graduated high school but hey I think we all go through that at one point.

    Haha, me too actually. The Jersey persuasion has reached Kentucky...I see a lot of kids at the UK gym trying to show off their underactive serrati.

    Did I mention I like your sig before? And now your avatar. I always use the Rondo's dunk over Dwight Howard when discussing power expression or agility in strength and conditioning class.

    no crossfitters in my gym....but the rule of thumb is if ur taking up multiple equipment and someone wants a rack....your losing the rack

    the second doesn't bother me....it seems like everyone in my gym does whatever they want in the squat rack, so it's normal for bb'ers, strongmen, powerlifters, and regular guys all do whatever in the squat racks

    the worst ppl are the powerlifters who have six gym bags, 3 bench shirts, 16 pairs of knee and wrist wraps, and a new belt for every set...their crap takes up half of the benches and most of the space between equipment making it hard grab plates

    and olympic style lifters dropping weights like idiots! at night no one seems to mind....but in the mornings theirs a few guys that chase that nonsense right out of the gym

    Yea like I said, I was wearing them while weighing all of 150 pounds smh..

    Yea if you can't tell from my avatars I'm a die hard New England sports fan...with Celtics probably being my favorite. Little tough to watch them recently..and yes, Rondo is an athletic freak

    If I've spoken with someone a few times, maybe I'll offer advice but I usually keep to myself.

    I'd correct that 120 lb kid doing arms everyday.. Benching only 2 inches from the top, and squatting real high.. Just because they don't know any better, and we all started as noobs as well, listening to any stupid advise that some other scrawny dude tells you to do. As for the big guys that's been training for awhile, leave em be. They probably have some real reason behind their terrible form.
