    Goofy things you see in the gym..

    The other day some guy walks into the gym, grabs a couple of 10lb dumbells and starts doing this swim motion with them - standing straight up and moving his arms in huge circles. He was about 60 lbs over weight and I couldn't help but wonder what he thought he was doing. After he finished that, he went over to the floor mat and proceeded do some some kind of snow angel/situp combination. Totally annoyed all the chicks who were trying to do crunches...lol

    Then today, another guy comes in, grabs a couple of 15lb dumbells and starts doing this .. umm... partial ROM standing shoulder press. .. he was just holding each dumbell over his head and moving them about 2 inches on every rep. He must have done 200 reps. He was over weight also.

    I think both of these guys were probably new years resolution members. I wonder if I will ever see them again? You guys ever see people doing goofy stuff in the gym?

    Two teenagers were in my gym and one started benching 135 as fast as he could and he was bouncing it off his chest real hard, so one of the 45 plates fell off because he had no clips on the bar, and the bar flip way to the right and if it had gone the other way it would have hit me in the face while i was benching.

    And some other kid, who was about 110 pounds, had to use the squat rack to do curls with 5's on each side and was pretty much dry humping the bar to get it up.

    No but there is a Annoying prick who has just started coming to the gym...I go to the University Gym which isn't that big, there are only 2 benches...this guy hogs the bench and does Dumbell Concentration Curls, Dumbell Overheads, Oh and imbetween each set he sits there drinking his gatorade looking at himself in the mirror...I wanted to go up there AND PUT MY FUCKING FOOT THROUGH HIS FFFUUUUCCCCKKKKEEEN FACE !!!! He would then Do Flyes , Incline, Decline.... It was a fucking joke. Hate people like that, especially the part imbetween where he would sit there looking at himself, posing. FUCKING ASSHOLE.

    I have a few pet peeves of my own:

    1. When someone smaller than you starts to give you "advice."
    2. When people take one of the "dual" high cables (like for cable flyes) to do tricep pushdowns when they could just as easily use the one right next to it that was meant for that. Instead, I have to wait for them to finish their set in order to do cable flyes.
    3. When people take up entire benches by the DB racks to "rest" inbetween curls.
    4. When people take like four BB's (like 70, 80, 90, and 100 lbs) to do curls and switch around while I wait for something to do curls with.
    5. When people stand between you and the mirror during a set of lateral raises.
    6. When people try to talk to you despite the fact that you obviously have two very loud headphones blaring in your ears.

    Ok, that's enough ranting...

    something like that happened to me.

    I was deadlifting about 6ft away from the squat cage (its not really a cage its more of a rack). So this asshole with a tongue ring is doing squats with 225 sticking his tongue out while hes doing the reps. of course he had no clips, he tilted to one side i think (didnt kno cuz i was paying attention to deadlifting) all i hear when im at the top of my deadlift is a huge crash and i see the barbell fall right in front of me at 900mph making all kinds of noise. since its a fairly small gym, everyone pretty much drops what their doing and stares at this kid and im standing there telling him how retarded he is and that he should take a fucking hike. had i been at the bottom of my deadlift, i would've caught the barbell to the back of the head.

    How about the 'nude guy' in the locker room.. anyone else have weird dudes like this at their gym? ... These guys just seem to enjoy hanging out naked in the locker room. Even when I am at home, I wear a towel if I am drying my hair in bathroom - I dunno why, I just do.. but these 'nude guys' are always running around in the locker room naked and trying talk to people. It's annoying.
