I notice other peoples form when doing movements, only to compare it to my own to see if I can improve myself. I don't "stare" though.

A not Very funny story but in re. to squatting. Sunday i was on the rack, ear buds in, volume maxxed. I see a dude outta the corner of my eye watching me. He's an awkward little fellow. I figured he wants to ask me a question, so I pause and remove an ear bud and turn around. He says, " Ummm, are you using that?"


Using what?

"That" as he nods to the rack itself.

Wut? ( I'm sweating and have 250 on the bar ) Do you mean you want the pins from the outside of the rack?

"Ummmm, no. Are you using that? "

Wut? Do you mean the shrug bar?

"No, I wondered if you were using that." Nods to the rack itself again.

Dude, are you asking me if I'm using the rack, when clearly I'm in the middle of my sets. Yes, I'm using it.

He begins to melt, his face turns red. I ask him if he'd like to work in with me though?

" Ummm, yes. Ummmm, what does that mean?"

SMH

I put my buds back in, did my next set and he walked off. Another rack opened up. I shit you not, he put 2 10s on the bar and proceeded to almost fall on each squat. No coordination, no balance, no weight. uggggggg

My gym thought it would be funny to put the cable row machine in front if the lying leg curl machine, then put a mirror in front of the cable row machine. Freaking impossible not to look at girls tits when they are in leg curl machine. Phone Post

I hate it when they stare at me while I use it. <br />

What combination of plates do you use for 250 there, sparky?

Gym violation = anyone who uses a 2.5 lb. plate in a squat rack.

I saw something worse than curling in the squat rack the other day.

Some guy was doing bodyweight squats in the squat rack.

I was there for about 10 minutes doing squats, and the whole time he did squats with no weight, inside the rack.

Before I got set up at home I'd lift out of a gym nearby. I used to always have to ask people if I could use the rack for squatting, good mornings, etc when they were in there doing incline dumbell presses, push ups, crunches and all sorts of other bullshit. Then one day that stopped completely because they moved the rack to a place that didn't have a mirror in front of it. Nobody used for anything other than squatting after that.

I honestly didn't know what he was talking about! I did feel bad for the guy and would have helped had he done more then one set. I admire him in truth. Most new people will just use the machines. This kid went straight for the squat rack.

I hate everything about the gym. Working extra hours to do a home gym. I absolutely HATE unsolicited advice. I look like I lift. I'm in my late 30's. I don't need advice unless you are JACKED. 2 weeks ago , some dummy told me I was using too much back . He looked like an extra from the walking dead, Phone Post

^ yeah that bothers me, It also kills me how many people ask what I'm on... Assuming I'm taking a steroid and not dieting like a bastard and coming here at 5am, 6 days a week.

Also this morning there is a guy here with a huge Tim Hortons coffee, why! Phone Post

Asshole in my gym was stacking weights and moving barbells around WITH A PLATE OF TUNA SALAD IN THE OTHER HAND. He would curl and then eat his salad. Beat that.

All sorts of horrible crazy shit happens in my gym. Over 50% of the guys are in jeans. One dude yesterday was benching (i admit quite a lot) but he was talking to himself loudly, throwing wieghts around and kept repeating "I'M NOT EVEN TRAINING, IM JUST MESSING AROUND"

I only put up with it cos its a pure hardcore gym, with a shit load of old skool equipment, but it attracts all the crazies and assholes and druggies too.

Watching these clowns work the bag is hysterical. One dude had arms going at it like pnuematic pistons.

AlphaJ -  -standing in front of someone's line of site with the mirror during sets! Let people use that for motivation and form while lifting.

-people who curl on the smith machine

-throwing ur entire back into a curl that's way to heavy.

-using a desperate kick motion while doing pull-ups. Do that shit right.

-dropping heavy ass weight on the floor loud as fuck. Then just leaving them there.

-sizing people up in the gym.

-talking on ur cell while on a popular machine.

-shadow boxing around the entire gym

-People who wear lifting belts lifting light ass weight.

-fat guys trying to give me advice on new workouts. I do fitness comps. Don't need ur advice if u never look like u lifted a day in ur life Phone Post

People who do fitness comps
