    I cannot stand this.

    My gym's dumbbell rack has 2 rows, a top and a bottom. It starts from left to right, increasing in weight. People are fucking ALWAYS doing like 20 rep sets of some dumbbell exercise DIRECTLY in front of the rack so I cant get any dumbbells in that area. What I do now is just stand right next to them and if they don't move I just go in and try to pick them up which almost always makes them move.

    I cannot stand that shit b/c you HAVE to know you are blocking people out when you do this shit

    NO


    these people are doing marathon sets... the smaller dumbbells are right above the heavier ones and I really don't feel like waiting 45 extra seconds everytime I want a fucking dumbbell, especially when there is a huge open space where they can take their dam dumbbells

    they also like to put their weights on the ground right in front of the rack and stand there inbtwn sets so people have to walk around them

    People do it all the time at my gym. There are even signs in front of the fucking thing that say "Do not stand in front of the dumbbell rack." It's gotten to the point where I say excuse me and reach in to grab in one motion.

    These people don't bother me so much. The ones I hate are guys who come in and spend like an hour in the cable crossover, tying it up for everyone. And its always some weird shit that you can't work in with them either.

    I really hate the people that come in with a trainer and somehow end up using 3 benches at one time (or so it seems) while they do the weirdest/most pointless shit ever.

    Yesterday, this group of 4 guys all lined up next to each other in front of the dumbbell rack to do their curls (which were like 2 minute long dropsets), and they were curling in synchronization with one another.
