    I am a newb and a lightweight, but it bugs the shit out of me that EVERY time I go to the gym I see someone doing squats IN FRONT OF the rack.

    In fact I think I've only seen ONE person do them inside of the rack other than myself.

    people who come to the gym to talk on their cell phones. They spend more time talking on the phone or resting between sets than actual exercise.

    The guy who bumped into my weights when I was squatting as he tried to squeeze between the squat rack and smith machine (which the gym idiots put too close together). I told him he was a dumb ass and he agreed. Now I need to have the gym staff move the equipment further apart.

    people who leave dumbbells on the floor after they are done with their sets. isn't the whole point of weightlifting to LIFT weights?

    I hate stupid gym broads that look like french whores and flirt while pushing a measly 5 pounds. Go to the fucking club and let me use the goddamned equipment already.

    anyone in a wife beater / sleeveless tee.

    if i wanted to see your arms, i'd ask you, asshole. and i'm pretty sure you already know what your arms look like. so put on a regular shirt, she-ra, and workout your body and not your overinflated ego.

    People Who dont wipe down the equipment (benchs, etc) after their sweaty asses are done on it :ugh:
    When the gym is absolutely deserted and they decide they need to workout 5 feet away from me
    People who do 1 set on each machine than proceed to flex and roll up their sleeves in front of the mirror

    fuckers that use the squat rack as a curl rack. If you cant deadlift the fucking weight you shouldnt be curling it. :angst:

    no pet peeves that stick out really. im more focused on lifting and getting out than looking at what other people do.

    That is how I missed it when the dumbass ran into the side of the weights as I was squatting. I was concentrating on lifting and didn't see how close he was until it was too late.

    there always seems to be a guy who has ONE of each dumbell from about 20-40lbs, and is somehow using all of them at the same time. how, i have no idea :dunno:

    also the other day i was about to use the smith machine and was informed that it was not available, as it was currently being used as part of a incline-bench / speedbag superset :wtf:

    speedbag?


    my pet peeves are basicallly just idiots in general. i know i make mistakes, but when you're just a fuckin retard. i hate that. i just started going to a local gym (been at my university gym for awhile) and they definently dont have anywhere to deadlift properly. just because of the weight room arrangement. so i grabbed a bar, squeezed into a semi-open area and started busting out some reps. people were staring at me like i was weird cause it looks like no one dl's there.
