    Is that it's filled with douchebags who are obsessed with their upper body.

    I think I've seen 2 or 3 people other than myself do squats. :hsugh: I get wierd looks when I do them too :ugh:

    Today I was in working and I spotted this kid with a big upper body and his legs looked like sticks. I mean his calves couldn't have been any bigger than the average girl's bicep. :rofl:

    I just don't get it. You look like a total douchebag asshat if you're not at least proportional. :mamoru:

    Unless you go to a hardcore gym, it is like that everywhere.

    :rofl:

    This is the other thing, when I do rarely see people do squats they go nowhere NEAR paralell. They just load up a shitload of weight and slightly bend their knee :rofl:

    I also like it when I go in to do squats and someone has turned the rack into their own little curl station. :ugh:

    i hate that, esp. if they're just curling the bar. they can do that anywhere.

    otherwise, i like that the squat racks are always empty

    So true man, here at Tech I'll see groups of 4-6 from the real "fratty" fraternities come in and load the bar up, do 1/8th squats and then high-five each other. Drives me crazy to see the squat rack wasted like that.

    hammies and quads on tuesdays....

    calves I've been doing on back days...

    Any good calve exercises besides like a standing calve press? I've just heard you're calves respond better to high reps than heavy weight. Anybody shed any light on any tricks?

    Went to the gym yesterday and saw this group of 3 guys that "work out" there. I was there for about an hour, and the whole time, they were either on the bench press machine or the bicep curl machine... douchebags.

    meh.

    you guys don't gotta be douchebags about it. EVERYONE is at the gym for the same reason. so they want to spend all their time on the benchpress and curl machine...if it doesn't affect you, who cares?

    no shit. I don't pay attention to anyone at my gym. Except this one guy who is always doing flat bench on the smith machine which is right next to the water fountain. It wouldnt' be so bad if he didn't fucking wear that new icy hot cologne bc I cannot breath around that shit.

    I really like the dude's that pull down a fat DB and slap thier arms for vascularity until a chick walks by, then do a couple curls. Fucking dipshits. The college gym was very well equipped, but thats about it. I do prefer a gym with adults. Back at the college gym, there was always some frat boy, dip shit talling people they were "on my plate machine." [move]:greddy:[/move]
