    At my gym we have older people that workout there. They can't lift the 35 or 45 pound weights. Is it fair for them to not be able to use a machine because some punk kid was too lazy to put them back?

    Hell no.
    Good man right here. I hope you don't clear the plates from equipment you aren't using though!

    When I gym today I'm going to unconsciously think of u when I see upside down dumbbell numbers.

    Haha! I'm just kidding... serious. I definitely take the weights off the bars/machines with old people in mind. There are tons of silver sneakers at my gym and they happen to generally be fun to talk too.

    I'm kidding man. Chill out.

  5. As long as the DBs are put back to their designated location on the rack. all is good.

  6. OP- you remove them all.

  7. What if your gyms really busy? Mine only has 1 or 2 bits for most exercises so if I finish deadlifting or leg press and the next thing I want to do is free I go grab it leaving the weights on

    If you have time to put the weights on the bar and do sets with it, you have time to put them away. Why is your time more valuable than everyone else's at the gym? It's one thing to leave a plate or two on the leg press, but it's another entirely to leave 2-3+ plates per side side on the bar after deadlifts and expect someone else, maybe your mom, to clean up your mess. If you have to grab another machine quickly, put your towel/bottle there, then go back and put your weights away from where you were. Do not leave them laying around.

  9. Cause the minute or so it takes to unload can be the difference between having a 10-15min wait to do your next exercise. I don't do it all the time but if the gyms really busy it's Everyman for them self where I go

  10. Like @muscleupcrohn said, just out your towel over the bar or seat and put a plate or two on it then hurry back and put the others away.

    A lot of times ill put my bottle on the seat and grab the plates from what I was using before and put them on the one in going to.

  11. One of the most dangerous things in a gym is an unmovable-for many, bar full of plates that is lying on the floor and people pass over it holding dumbbells. Or rolling it over there and then again over here because it's an obstacle. Plus, for some people unloading it, equals half of their workout. It's a pity to spend it on it. Just my opinion
    Anything, just ask

    This, plus, the majority of people who see a bat on the ground with 225+ think it's still being used, since people tend to still have some basic faith in humanity, and don't expect someone do be enough of a douche to leave it there when they're done. If it sounds harsh, good. Just put a towel/bottle on your next machine, then put your weights away, before someone picks up your bar and drops it on your lap at your next machine.

    Very true. I have been waiting for a rack to empty as there were plates on it, many times. Thing is always people are passing by and if you are busy doing an other exercise, you think someone is actually using it. Now I go and claim the rack if I dont see anyone there for like 2-3 minutes.

  14. I always strip the machine when I'm done. Even leg press. If somebody wants to jump onto the leg press and use 25's, that's their business, not mine.

    Unless someone is waiting for whatever you're using, and says to leave X plates on the side, please strip it. As some other people said, other people may think it's still in use. Plus it's just disrespectful to the gym and other members. If the gym is that busy, ask to work in.

    Then change your order of exercises. It won't kill you.
