Default Gym Pet Peeves! - 10-17-2011, 01:22 PM

Curls in the power rack?
Taking 8 hours on a single machine?
Talkers?

We all have pet peeves in the gym, but not only would I like to find out what your pet peeve is but also want to work together on how to approach them!
This should be fun!

My pet peeve is loud talkers who talk the whole time in the gym very very loudly.
Ain't nobody want to hear that garbage!!
Also why do very old men think the mens locker room is a day spa?
Just straight up chillin naked reading the paper, cutting toe nails, and shaving naked. WTH????????????

We have two squat racks. I hate when someone is trying to use both to do some sort of superset or when 2 people are working out together but use both racks instead of sharing one. If I see this shit and I need to use it I just take it.


Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward.
Whoever cannot take care of themselves without that law is both.
For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

ALL GOOD ONE.

I GOT ONE FOR YA.

Ever see someone who jerks the shit out of the weight or pulls alot of weight and form is just all over the place then bangs the weight down like they did something.

For big guy like me this pisses me off. I mean if you were actually strong you could control the weight in a matter that would not bring excessive attention to your dumb ass.

Also. Since when did moving the weight like you were a piston in a race car in any shape of the word work the muscle. Oh I know most people want to throw the weight on and move it as fast as possible thinking this will gain strength and muscle. Wrong. Hell boys and girls I bet if you slowed down with that huge weight you were using and actually done it in the right 6 months from now you would be twice as strong and actually built some muscle.


That brings me to shoulder shrugs. 99.999999% of the people I see doing shrugs do them..... you guessed it. WRONG!!!!!

I bet I can take anyone who thinks throwing on over 500 lbs on the shrugs and make them lighten the weight and do it right they can't get a good 10 reps.

See, Gravity is a bitch and it don't give so throwing around weight does you know good in building muscle. Slow and steady makes it work harder and in the long run you will gain more.

Proven fact my friend. I may be fat but I've moved some heavy ass stuff in my life and know how to get strong.



Those are just couple of my pet peeves.

I heart shrugs, especially 12plates on the HS machine shrugs lol...haven't met a shoulder workout I don't like.

But pet peeves? We got this guy in our gym, I call him sponge bob. He's a wanna be bodybuilder (granted he is huge but he's shaped like a square) who works out with an old powerlifter dude. Always throwing weights around n droppin shit when he does deads etc yelling like a moron...then wonders why he places 3rd out of 3 LOL.

Kids bounching BB's off their chest trying to bench, and I literally mean high school kids.

Dudes who obviously don't work legs, then brag about their bench.

This one fat kid who's strong, brags about how strong he is this n that...but really dude looks like a loaded potato...don't brag if you don't wanna be judged.

The fact that every middle aged woman CANT park worth the crap at the gym, and theres 60 of them in every aerobics/spin/zoomba class, taking up ALL the parking.

The guy who knows everybody with the stuffed full of supps duffle bag and gallon jug of water, who you never see actually lift anything.

String bean kids working out together, taking up 2 benches instead of one with half the rack of dumbells at their bench.

Old naked dudes in the locker room, like for real man pants were invented forever ago, get some.

Dudes on gear that don't share.

Scales with no batteries, but a big sign saying the tanning beds have new bulbs.

People so jacked yet too lazy to rack their weights when they're done.

Girls who announce "ew it smells like sweat down here" then go back upstairs.

I could go on but it would drive me nuts, way easier to turn up the volume on the ipod, rock some black label and ignore the stupid and just do work lol


"Ain't nothin to it but to do it"

"If I'm gonna die tonight, if this weight is gonna kill me tonight, then so be it."

Naked old men in the locker rooms must be a universal problem at gyms! Lol. I can't even recall how many times I've walked into the locker room and I have the view of a naked old guy bending over. Something that nobody should ever have to see!!!

If you're not going to enter the pain zone on leg day, you might as well go play hopscotch in the parking lot of your gym.

It is a universal problem. I swear once is too many, but I hate to admit how many times I've come into the locker room only to find some super nova white ass sticking straight up while they are bent over. Can they not aim that thing somewhere else???? I tell my buddies "there's 6 more months of winter or something like that!"

Well one more pet peeve is guys who get on gear and insist on telling other people....look if gets back to me that your on gear guess how many other donkey's know protect your source dudes!!!!! dang be smart about it unless one cycle is all you want to do cause you bout to get your source done in.

I have to agree with the naked old guy. I know they're comfortable with their body, so am I but I really am not into looking at another old man or showing what God gave me. So I second the "put on a towel". Also another peeve of mine is wet feet. Dry your feet off, I'm not interested in stepping in your shower water. Especially on the scales when I weigh myself. There's a guy that does quarter reps. I don't have the heart to tell him that if he can't do full reps, to me it's not worth doing the lift.

man my gym is pretty laid back compared to these. We don't have a locker room for starters... lol no nude dudez for me!

people talking and sitting on machines not using them.

People using a single pulley machine in the dual pulley machine ( for chest flys and such)

People with bad form lifting too much. Mainly Dumbbell Curls. wiping their body so fast swaying back and forth just to Rep the 50lbs DBs a few times... so lame.

Ill add more later :P

GOOD REPLIES!

First the shrug issue. We should call these people the "shrug thugs!!"
We have a bunch of these guys in our gym. You know the type.
Shrugs like that don't build muscle.

Second...
Stuck up fitness chicks. They do a figure contest and all of a sudden they think they can't be talkin to. Dumb. One girl in our gym actually went up to some friends of mine and told them to stop staring at her. She was wearing the shortest tightest shorts that looked more like a large belt and was doing stiff-legged deadlifts on a platform.

If you wear Daisy Dukes, guess what, dudes are gonna be staring.

Had a girl just the other day make a comment about how loud I was being. She did it while she was walking to make it easy on herself.
I was soooo mad.

Oh, Tim we have a lady(?) in our gym, looks to be in early to mid 40's. Last night she was doing a decient workout I thought anyway. So she starts to pick something up off the floor. Guess what, bent from the waist stiff legged and the shorts she was wearing went into the nether regions. I did turn my head back around (and looked in the mirror).
Sometimes she'll sing with the music she's listening to, but that's ok her looks override that.

They wear that stuff for attention!! That is another pet peeve of mine, women who wear super tiny, tight shorts and a small sports bra in the weight room. I like to concentrate on my lifts, but when a woman goes walking by wearing that...well, there goes my concentration on the weights..
