    I think this is article is absolutely ridiculous. I agree with some of these but it mostly just sounds like a rant from a guy who has a magazine he can vent through. I have a tip for the writer: why don't you just go to the gym, keep your headphones on loud and worry about yourdamnself. Who says you have to go to the gym and worry about everyone else?

    Glad I'm not the only one! There are plenty of people that do annoying things at the gym but most of those things can be ignored. There's gym etiquette and then there's things that personally annoy you and this guy seems to be blabbing mostly about the latter.

    Terrible article. You want strict rules, hit planet. So what if I hit a pose after? This guy should be added as the 9th worst person to come across

    ^^ I agree. I've heard pros talk about the importance of posing the muscle you just worked to help with the mind-muscle connection. Posing is hard and is a work out in itself and if you compete, you need all the practice you can get.

    Agreed with Diabolik. I go to the gym and mind my own business. Don't get me wrong, if someone asks for a spot, or asks how I'm doing, I'll respond, but so long as the other person isn't directly bothering me (ex. jumping on the equipment I just finished a set on without asking), then I couldn't care less what he/she is doing. Sure, I see some of these character types mentioned in the article everyday in the gym, but they don't piss me off, I just find them amusing.

    I just hate the cell phone people, and especially the texters. They seem to totally not need to be at the gym, well most of them.

    If you follow the golden rule stay out of the way and are fairly personable when asked to spot for someone I feel you are more then alright.
