    There are two power racks in my gym. I usually do a 5 day split. 2-3 mornings of the week, I'm in the gym around 5:00 am. On Mondays, I go at lunch since I usually work from home. Monday is typically leg day.

    Today, some guy was in the left power rack doing barbell shrugs. In the second rack, there was a bench in the seated position set up to do front military presses. Behind this particular rack, there is a barbell military bench station that is capable of doing front or behind the back presses. I'd been in the gym for about 10 minutes at this point and didn't notice anyone using the right power rack. I entered the rack to remove the bench in order to start squatting. This douche actually had the nerve to yell at me that he 'was there'. I shrugged. I'm a pretty easy going guy and found something else to do. I watched him on and off through the rest of my work out. Dude was taking about 7 minutes inbetween sets as he spent his rest time writing in his log book, drinking water, fucking around. Amazing how selfish some fucks are. Sure, I super set too but I always yield to people who want to use the same equipment (or at the least, let them work in). I hate people who super set who think they have complete control over the 2+ stations they are using.

    Espeically when you start a set on 'their' equipment and they come running up to you saying that they are 'there'. Oh really? So I need to interrogate everyone in the gym if they are using a piece of equipment that's been idle for 5 minutes? I hate those assholes.

    the proper response would have been to fight him immediately. after knocking him unconcious, grab a 10 pound plate and proceed to bash his face in until he is toothless. then get his wallet out of his gym bag and look up his address. drive to his house and spit on then rape his wife. after you have proceeded with the rape, collect his financial information and head to the bank. withdraw all of the money out of the account(s) and order 6 cases of optimum nutrition pro complex.

    you can thank me later.

    I'm bigger than this dude was :rofl: I'm not into altercations, my personality just let's stuff like that go. I just don't understand how someone thinks acting in such a way is appropriate.

    If someone leaves the rack for more than a few minutes, I'm taking it. I keep my headphones so I can't hear anyone say anything. Plus most people won't say anything anyway...

    If it's not occupied in a 3 minute duration that rack would have been mine. I'm too much of an asshole to let that slide.

    A new personal trainer came up to me after a set of leg presses last week and started tapping me on the shoulder, literally just as I stood up from the machine. "Sir, you will have to take your gym bag into the locker room"

    I had a fucking meltdown for no reason, I felt kinda bad after. "Are you fucking kidding me? I use every single thing in this bag." He kept going, so I proceeded to take every single thing out of my gym back and scatter it around the leg press.

    I just got pissed later and got my bag back and started carrying it by him. Every time I saw him flirting with a chick or bullshitting with a potential client I would interrupt him, "bro you better get back to work, I see at least seven people with gym bags out here... you've got your work cut out for you"

    Then on the way out I asked him for his name so I could cite him as the reason I was going to be canceling my membership and three others. He quickly apologized and started blowing me in the locker room. No homo.

    just shrug it off and find something else do to. i've found the only outcome in confronting these situations is i get really annoyed and my workouts suffers for it.
