    I'm not kidding either, i never thought i'd experience this in my gym.

    I waited impatiently, for these 3 kids working togther, doing bicep curls, on the squat bar. Without weights.

    They took fucking 15 minutes. I only needed to finish of on one exercise, i felt like belting one of them over the head with some dumbbells.

    Fuck some people are inconsiderate.

    I didn't believe this either when I read it on F&N.

    Then, I saw four guys doing it in a crowded gym.

    It wouldnt bother me if they let me use it.

    its just when your working with 3 people. Its polite to let other people use the equipment mid set.

    just ask if u can work in your squats. if they say no, then tell them its a squat rack and take their curls elsewhere.

    To random people, they just see it as equipment. First come, first serve. They should give you a 15 minute class when you join a gym to teach you these things.

    Our gym rocks. They $550 per year (not USD), free routines/help whenever you need it.

    Plus its pretty empty most of the time.

    Some of the equipment is old but it does the job.

    Old guy tried doing that to me today. With a death stare on my face, I politely asked if he could curl somewhere else. He was happy to oblige.

    Since you didnt specify Im just going to assume that the one lift you had to finish in the squat rack was a one armed french press.

    i usually just grab one of the benches that isn't bolted to the ground and pull it up right next to the squat rack... sit down... and stare at them until they leave

    I usually just ask if I can work in... then they leave when I put the j-hooks up high and start loading wheels

    I just ask if they could curl somewhere else so I can squat. 9 times out of 10they are happy to oblige. But when that 10th one comes along I take em out with a 5lb plate flimsy style.

    fucking inconsiderate assholes. Who do they think they are using the equipment that you need that you both pay the same amount of money for? yeesh.

    instead of waiting around, why don't ya ask to work in, or perhaps replace it with another exercise that works the same muscles but uses different equipment?

    :werd: either ask to work in, or point out that the gym (usually) has a full set of BB bars with the mini weights on them that go from like, 20lbs -> 100lbs, and that those can do the same for them without them taking up the only place to squat in the gym
