What's your biggest pet peeve? What annoys you most when working out at the gym?

- When people rack plates with the inside facing outward.

- When people don't rack their weights when they finish.

- People who, when curling, go a fraction of the way down. Also, when they don't go all the way up.

- People who walk around with straps and use them for about every exercise. It's even worse when they use them for chest/shoulder/tri exercises.

- People who walk around with little notebooks to chart everything they do. I don't even see big powerlifters doing that (however, if they did, they'd be excused).

Ha, nicely said!! I'll also add:

-People who camp out on a piece of equipment just to chat.

-Horrid top forty music - that you hear over and over and over and over again lol

-People who talk non stop on their phones

-Those who wear cologne to "cover up" their BO - I walk away gagging with tears in my eyes from the stench.... lol

You never know when you're going to have to come running out and take off in a hurry.  That's why I always park nose out too.

There's a guy that comes in every Saturday and does the same bench thing every week.  He goes about 165# tops.  Loads up the bar with anywhere from 315# to 385# - I think he's even gone 405#.
He straps on this sling shot thing, unracks it with a spotter, has someone else hold an 8 inch board on his chest, and proceeds to arch his back up and down never actually moving the weight.  Roll Eyes  I don't know why, but it bugs the crap out of me.



Sling shot thingy

I prefer to help women unrack only lighter weights myself. Don't want to strain myself or anything.  If I notice a leg press loaded up situation, I usually act like I'm having a really interesting conversation on my cell phone. or really getting into my music.  If all else fails, I start shadow-boxing really intensely.

My gym peev's:

the person who needs to have the 20,30 & 40lbs dumbbells with them so they can do a circuit of some P90x routine.

no joke I see it all the time, curls in the power rack. it really does happen.

the guy who trains arms/shoulders and chest 3 days a wk.... and nothing else.

we got a guy who gets nose bleeds everyother wk from deadlifts but he doesn't clean it up off the floor!

my friends who walk in and just drop their belt/wraps/keys/phone/wallet in the middle of the workout area and like i'm a bastard when I suggest they get a gym bag for their stuff so I can stop kicking their shit out of the way so i don't step on it.

the two guys who want to "work in" on the leg press but can't do half the weight I am doing!! then they talk to each other about chic shit during thier reps. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD LOAD THE BAR WITH SOME SERIOUS FUCKING WEIGHT AND WORKOUT!!!

oh, shit... time to go workout. I feel motivated just thinking of the crap that pisses me off. Angry
