Was just reading this.
Everything he mentions applies directly to my current gym.
never seen 5 or 9 in my gym
#1 and #3 are the biggest ones. All I'm asking for is one olympic platform with bumper weights. Is that too much to ask?
first of all, I hold on to the rails when I'm walking on the treadmill
but yeah this dude is right but that shit will never happen... nobody ever puts shit back the wya it's found and every time I want to use the squat rack I have to strip plates off it... a couple times some asshole has even left a 585+lb BB laying on the floor so I have to strip that shit myself if I want to use it. fuckin sucks but I never catch anybody in the act where I can call them out on it.
I hate loose dumbells
i love seeing people crunk the spring collars
I guess I'm lucky. The 24 Hour I go to really doesn't have any of those issues. I mean there are definitely people who don't rerack their weights and there are others that yack on their cellphones, but it's certainly not the norm.
also i think #9 is a little out there. you could pretty much say that with anything like dental floss tanks with hairy backs, short shorts etc etc
Only people I've ever seen wear sunglasses in the gym are black.
lol I saw this black dude leave the club last night, get in his escalade truck on DUBZ and put his sunglasses on and procede to drive around at 2 am. WITH FUCKING DARK ASS SUNGLASSES ON. DRUNK AS FUCK.
but shit you gotta ball til you fall
I hate spring collars
its fucking rediculous- i mentioned this before but there was a retarded dude wearing glasses eating CHICKEN with his hands between sets.
I've been to a lot of different gyms and haven't experienced a lot of these things(lucky I guess), and couldn't care less about the others.
I guess the biggest one is the cellphone thing, who doesn't have headphones on in the gym these days?
I go to a Gold's Gym in SF and sadly I see a lot of the above mentioned things. Half of the people are serious about lifting and respectfully put things back. The other half are idiots who like to do their 20lb curls standing right in front of the weights so no one else can access them.
The most annoying/hysterical thing are some of the girls that workout in the gym. They'll workout in their velour matching pants and jacket and have those enormous sunglasses on. It's hilarious to find girls who dress up to go workout. Worst part is they are a bunch of ugly looking cougars.
My gym is mediocre with this stuff. We have a lot of tools that try to make our gym a shining example of that list.. but we also have a solid amount of dudes who are serious lifters and use power racks, put back weights, etc...
So I guess it evens out. My gym has 3 power racks and I usually have to wait to use one. I'd say 75% of the time it is being used for legitimate reasons (squats/deads/rows) but there are times it is being used for curls, leg raises, etc...
We need more power racks in my gym though. The power rack is where people do squats, deadlifts, BB rows, pullups, hanging leg raises, etc... and I find myself waiting 20min to use one sometimes.
I don't understand this... why half ass your cardio? Do you have your buddy pull the bar up for you too when you bench?
I love seeing the people who set the incline at the max then hang from the back of the machine so they don't have to exert hardly any effort
i wear my stun glasses at nigggghhhtt
