    Besides treadmills and ellipticals of course.

    In mine it is the pec deck. Every man and woman, regardless of age, will use the pec deck at least once while they are in the gym. On chest day I actually have to stay seated in the damn thing between sets or some dude will swoop in for his 80-rep set with 20lbs.

    Thankfully most people only do one set :rofl:

    flat benches because ass holes sit on them and take 5 minute rest periods between their 1000 sets of whatever that they are doing with practically no weight.

    not really equipment, but definitely the mirrors.

    people are always using them to check out their biceps as they curl, to check their abs, etc.

    Flat benches, cable row machines, preacher curl seat, incline benches, smith machine, leg press, leg curl/leg ext

    i'd say that the squat rack is the first or second least used piece of equipment in the gym, with the exception of things like med balls and foam rollers, which never seem to move.

    When i used to go at ~3am it would just be me and this crazy old lady running on the treadmill for hours. She had to be at least 60.

    I can't really think of anything that I see used more than anything else, though. I don't really pay attention. :dunno:

    Easily the dumbbells as the popular weight routine at my gym is 3x50 on curls and 5x30 on bench. All with as little weight as possible so that the girls are like WOW he lifts for a long time. :ugh:

    Hey Layne, where do you live in SC? I'm pretty sure I asked before, but I can't remember.
