People at the gym I can't stand

I know this has been done before, but I need to put in my $.02.

-Guys using the bench/squat bars for curls. Yeah dude, you can curl 75lbs and I'm impressed, but I promise the straight or EZ bar will get you just as big. Fucking use it so some of us can use the bars as they were intended.

-People that fill up their gallon jugs of water at the fountain. There's nothing better after a good set than a 5 minute break while some dumbass prepares for Y2k.

Rant off.

hahaha. the water is a big one. i always fill up the nalgene downstairs, so i dont have to keep people waiting.

the one that gets me the most is when the 40+ year old males on the free motion equipment that load up the machine, then gets 2-3 reps then slam the weight down. after a good 2-3 reps, they sit there for 5 minutes 'resting' because they just had a tough set.

the old guys are always funny to watch in the gym...one time i was doing bench did sets like 135,185,225,275,315 got to 5 reps...anyways this old guy kept looking at me on and off so i noticed him trying to keep up with me and at 275 i went 8 and he couldnt even do 1 he got the bar stuck on his chest and it was so funny to me...end of story

Just another day in paradise.

Huge guys with their IPOD in ther ears singing like Aaron Neville loud enough for the entire gym to hear

Fat women who go to the gym to socialize around the Elipticals and get no work done.

People who sweat excessively and don't wipe that shit down afterwards.

Women who work out with full face of makeup and hair done.

Men who walk around with their arms almost at a 90* angle to their body. You're not fooling anyone, shrimp.

People who perform odd, very gay stretching rotines in front of the mirror.

Old men who wear super short shorts like they have no grasp on reality

when i do straight bar curls. i use the squat rack.. why? because i have seen some people SQUAT less then i curl.. its kinda a vicious circle.. i hate the little shrimps benching 200lbs who make me wait for my bench press.. but you dont hear me bitching about it.

I hate people that just leave the dumbells laying on the floor after they have thrown them to the ground.

I also hate people that leave the bar/machine racked up.

I hate it when people unrack the bar but just leave all the weights on the floor leaning against the rack.

In essence, I hate it when people don't rerack. If you can't rack it, don't lift it.

I love the people who work with trainers that either whine at the slightest discomfort or act like they know more than the trainer does. Most of them are flabbies.

I can't stand people that put a 20 pound plate on and do 100 reps. I'm thinking the aerobics classes would probably work better for you in that case.

Also not a big fan of people using the bench press machine and taking turns with 350-400 pounds. If you've got a spotter use the free weights, it's not as cool saying you put up 250 pounds instead of 400 but atleast it's more accurate.

The worst by far are the people that put that halls crap or whatever it is in the steam outlet in the steam room. I don't want to smell that crap.

That's one of my biggest pet peeves. They need to have a "filling station" in one corner of the gym that has a regualr fountain, and then next to it a faucet for filling jugs like that. Like the ones they use in homes with purifiers.

It's one thing if you need the squat rack due to the amount of weight you need, but I see dudes curling 70lbs on the squat rack when there's a 70lb straight bar 10 yards away.

Oh the trainers, the trainers are great.

I had this one guy bug me for 5 months to do an evaluation or whatever they are called, "reprogram" I think.

The guy wanted me to put 2" on my arms in a month I just said, okay yeah bro I'll get on that and I ignore his ass whenever he calls me.

Dude is 5'8" 155 (so he claims, I think he's about 130) and was trying to give me tips to "get big" when my arms are 4-5" bigger than his. He also tried to change my leg workout when my fucking thighs are 28.5" unflexed. Yeah buddy.

Then we started talking about fighting and he was telling me he was a cage fighter blah blah blah and my buddy that works the front desk told him he should fight me for money. At that point I just said I was out and left. Most of those idiots just have no idea.


The thing is though, they go through a 3 day training course and think they are the shit when really they usually have no idea what the are doing.

At most places that is not the case. Where i work, most trainers have multiple certifications, multiple years of training, and some have a bachelors in some sort of exercise science. Trainers go through a 2 week training, and are required to have at least one certification before they can start training.

Congratulations, your legs are 28.5" unflexed. So you work out and eat right...Not everyone can have the genetics or dedication you do. That is why they need a trainer to get them the extra motivation, and show them what they need to do.

I am not saying every single trainer should be training, I am just saying that some of them do know what they are talking about and can be very positive influences.

Yeah SSprayit does seem to be a bit full of it. He was trying to talk like 130lb DBs were light the other day. I may be wrong but im calling BS. If he's never been in a gym with a trainer thats in shape...i doubt he's in as good of shape as he claims. But i would love to be wrong in this case.

Everyone can have a trainer. T.O, Jordan, D Wade....the old lady down the street that wants to get in shape, the single mom, the 100lb overweight person that doesnt want a lapband.

I just think its funny that he is acting so superior, and as it seems, i guess that is a common thing from him.

Ever heard of reading comprehension? I NEVER said 130lb dumbells were light, I said that's LIGHT to have as the biggest dumbell in a gym. If it was a high school gym, yeah that's one thing but for a gym that ANYONE can go to, I know little skinny dudes that can shrug 130s so it'd be nice to have something bigger for those who can use it.

You can call BS all you want, I have nothing to prove to anyone but myself, and I'm doing pretty good for myself IMO.

I have no problems with the guys that are serious about fitness and want to see people do better. I DO however have problems with people that are just trying to make money off of other people's physical misfortunes. Not everyone knows how to work out correctly, not everyone knows how to be motivated to do things on their own so they turn to trainers who SOMETIMES don't know much more than the people they are training. I understand offering tips and shit to other people, I do it all the time to people that are bigger AND smaller than me, I love helping people out, but I will ALWAYS tell someone that it's something that works for me, and might not work for them. What I DON'T get is why someone who is obviously not gaining much from their own advice trying to tell someone who has been working out for years and is of good size what to do - not offering advice or saying "hey try this and see how this works" but to straight up tell someone "that shit doesn't work, do this or you won't get bigger" when it's plainly obvious it has been working for years.

I don't like being worked out by a trainer. I'm much more comfortable working out with someone that is way bigger and way stronger than me, as long as they are working out too. I couldn't sit there and let someone tell me what to do unless they're doing it to. If I'm acting smug I appologize, I don't come off well on the internet, but I assure you I do have good intentions however poorly portrayed.

I'm always the first person to walk up to someone I don't know and offer a spot or ask someone working out by themselves if they want to work in with me if I notice they are doing the same workout. I just don't like being told what to do, or telling people what to do. Sorry if that bothers anyone.

It seems to me that there are alot of trainers out there with all of this supposed knowlege, but they don't apply it to their own lifestyles or bodys. It's like seeing an oncologist standing outside the hospital on a smoke break.

Rant off.

What's wrong with using a bench bar for curls? Most gyms don't have 150-200# curl bars. What about the people using the bench and only putting 1 plate on each side? If that's a big problem with you buy your own gym.

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

I get sick of people asking us why we are doing whatever exercise we are doing. Granted we do a lot of "weird" shit, but anything that is not benching with a flat back or preacher curls seems to blow all the frat boys' minds.

haha yeah that's us. It's all pretty standard powerlifting stuff, but I agree a lot of it looks goofy as hell. the boards are for overloading the upper end of bench. Gotta really work the lockout when you bench in a shirt.

damn i never did any carzy shit like that in powerlifting. Lockout was always the easiest with a shirt. But i do remember morning glories and deadlifting from an elevated box.

for the record I'm weak . Last raw bench number was 215, that was back in September I believe coming off a three month break. I'll work up to 300ish off a 4 board, pressing off pins I can do 365 for 10 and 405 for 6. In a borrowed shirt that's a size too big I hit 285 easy off a 2 board a couple weeks ago. I'm still pretty new to wearing shirts though. Hopefully I'll hit low-mid 3's in my first comp in april. Currently tipping the scales at a beastly 178

From what I understand, he said that I could probably bench 500lbs in the right shirt.
