    Mine has to be when people use DB or bb and when they are done the weight is just left on the bar or off the racks. So iI have to search around the gym for a damn DB.

    People who hop on a bench or machine without making sure someone is done. I usually just go back to the machine and lean on it or stand there and make them uncomfortable.

    A simple "is anyone using this?" usually gets the job done.

    I know you said just one but I have so many. Curls in the squat rack, people playing around on machines when I"m trying to do supersets, having to clean up other peoples weights because they wanted to try and show off with a weight they can't even remotely handle properly, the list goes on and on...

    tools that ask to work in with you, and then we're tearing down big plates and putting like a lone 25 on each side. Got no problem with people working in, but I'm not going to be tearing down plates for something little kids type shit. just embarassing all the way around... hate to be that dick that says "hold on", but that's me.

    fat people who think they're "big" because their arms are 19" FAT, people who throw the dumbells after their lift as if to say "LOOK AT ME, YES! THOSE WERE 60LB DUMBELLS BIIIIITCH", cell phone talkers, & the loud grunters

    I usually just ask if I can work in with whoever is on the machines, MY pet peve is sombitches who sit on the machine even in between sets.... Especially if their rests consists of jus staring around the gym or if they just sit for minutes. Chances are they are ignorant any way. When I ask to work in they either say yea sure or they just abandon their set and run away haha...

    New years resolutioners. Give it up people. Training for two weeks a year won't make you any less fat or fitter.

    I just walk in front of them, interrupting their set, and grab whatever weight I need. I don't even bother with an "excuse me". They learn quickly, after the second interruption.

    Man, lifters like *you* annoy me. You go to the gym to lift weights and then complain that working in with someone who uses lighter weights than you means you have to... omfg.. move heavy plates around? If your gym had an escalator and stairs, I'd bet you'd take the escalator. I don't mind a skinny dude working in with me, because every time I mount and unmount plates I turn it into a goblet squat, bicep curl or front plate raise.

    I have my ear phones in and can't hear shit, so talkers and grunters don't disturb me. And you know what? Who gives a flying fuck what other people think of themselves. Mr 19-inch fatty fat arms doesn't affect my workout, neither does the guy walking around with Imaginary Lat Syndrome. The only things that annoy me are smells, and things that directly affect my workout.

    Well, there is an actual cause for this. Due to the amount of excess fat stored on the Lats and triceps, these folks simply can't put their arms down at their sides...kinda like the Michelin Man...or the Pop-n-Fresh dough boy.

    Curls in the squat rack definitely irritate me. There was a group of 3 guys resting like 2 minutes between sets doing wrist curls and reverse wrist curls in an open cage. They were all occupied and a couple people waiting to do squats. Go pick up your fucking bar with 2.5s on each side off the floor and do them. Jesus, are you afraid you might get to close to a real workout if you pick it up?

    I also hate when people leave their stuff up. I never know if the piece of equipment I'm looking to use is in use by someone in the bathroom, drinking water, or supersetting, or if it's just some lazy douche bag (Usually the latter).

    I don't like seeing 4 inch squats either, but at least those people are just ignorant, not inconsiderate.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...

    I agree. That's a real shitbag attitude. I always offer to switch things around. This guy talks like he is breaking world records with his lifts. Go to a gym heavily occupied by powerlifters and you'll be the one using pussy weights. You're not better than them. You started somewhere too.

    Yeah not unloading your weight is it.

    Two days ago I walked into the leg room and there were two big dudes squatting with 400+. I was impressed right up until they walked out leaving the bar loaded with 400+ lbs.

    I looked at the guy on the next rack and said "i know they aren't going to leave it like that"... he says "yeah I know, right" THEN later HE left without unloading his!
    I don't get these people.

    I've got two... 14 year olds who do bicep curls EVERYDAY, and older guys who gather in crowds and never stop talking to eachother in front of the weights/equipment.

    I hate it when i finish a set and throw the massive weight i use down, and no one notices.
    Or when im grunting loud and no one looks to see me power up those 40lb db.

    10. Other people in the weights room in general
    9. "Personal Trainers"
    8. People who needlessly drop their ridiculously light deadlift weight then look round to see who's watching
    7. People who claim they're using something when they're clearly fucking not!
    6. People who roar across the room at each other
    5. People who leave about 329438539 dumbbells behind them
    4. The skinny prick that gives bodybuilding advice
    3. The fat prick that gives core advice
    2. Bastards who feel the need to dry their bollocks in your face in the changing room
    1. Barbell Curls in the squat rack
    Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.

    1: kids who dance around the gym with there iPod on there's a aerobics room for that go use it.

    3: the cell phone homos.. Look I agree carry your phone with you incase of an emergency not to take pics for Facebook, or creep on the women of the gym with to run in the shower and wack one off.
