    people straddling the bench & using the bench press bar to do curls.

    for real, the gym was packed last night so the benchpress stations were busy the whole night. yet, there is always space & benches near the dumbells... but apparently, these two mini-paisas decide that they have to do curls using the bench press bar with 2.5lbs on each side.

    :mad:

    I don't like people using the squat rack to do curls with the bench press bar! I don't know if its proper gym etiquettte or not, but I don't like it.

    These bunch of fucking faggots were all taking turns doing curls in the squat rack/dead lift area using those big ass 10 pound plates :ugh2:

    I guess they thought it made them look stronger?

    Its fucking retarded. My gym has a preacher stand, 20 different barbells, and two bicep machines. Assholes actually do curls in the squat rack.

    Yesterday when I showed up there was a guy standing arround infront of the dumbell rack, resting I guess. I was talking to some friends on the treadmills while I was streching. So when I went up front to get on the bench, the guy was doing DB rows on the bench press instead of on the plain flat bench 3 ft away. I waited paitently for him to get done with his set, and proceded to start putting plates on the bar. He watched me get the bar set up, he watched me lay down and get positioned, and watched me start doing some reps. 3-4 reps in he tells me, who is in the middle of a fucking exercise, to get up because he was using that. I lauged at him, which almost killed me, and finished my set.

    At the 24-hour fatness I go to, the PT's have clients using the squat racks for the medicine ball exercises and the flat benches for various ab exercises

    I hate the trainers at 24H.F.... it seems like all they do is stuff with the swiss balls... (and other balancing acts) with EVERYONE... it doesn't seem like they recognize the different needs of their clients.

    Yeah I love the balancing act routines. I never see someone doing any excercise with both feet planted on the floor or without thier body contourted into some goofy position

    they also sometimes act like they run the place, which is really annoying... the ones at my gym like to take up like 3 pieces of equipment at the same time :hsugh:

    The ability to adapt to the needs of the clients is the sign of a good PT. 99% of PTs are not good PTs.
