    Slam those weights






    Got back from the gym a little over an hour ago and was so pissed i thought i better get it off my chest lol

    There's was a guy in the gym and granted he did have large ish arms but his form was AWFUL and he rushed every single lift going VERY fast then he just literally let go of the wieght and let it smash too the floor

    WHAT A DICK

    I felt like saying something but didn't IMO he is only big due to his genetics cus his lifting was POOR

    Anyone else had anything like this?

    Thanks

    Chris

    who cares, it's a noise at a gym.

    Thats like bitching for people speeding at a racing event.

    I disagree with the second and third posts wholeheartedly.

    Firstly, he's lowering the life span of the equipment, which means potentially higher premiums in the future for other members who use the equipment properly.

    Secondly, many younger guys may see this and think it is proper gym etiquette and do the same.

    Thirdly, it's loud, obnoxious and rude.

    Fourthly, it's dangerous.

    Sixthly, it's embarrassing for other people in the gym to even be in the same room with someone acting as barbaric and rude as that.

    Either you're bad at conveying sarcasm via internet, or your counting is terrible.

    He's not being sarcastic

    Slamming the weights is not proper gym etiquette

    Then he should use less weight. Obviously he can't handle the weight if he's forced to drop it.

    And that was just a typo.

    It still stands, it's a noise. I don't drop any weights but I don't think getting riled up and not focusing on your own lifts is a very smart way to handle it. Who really gives a shit.

    Dropping the weights damages them. It can also injure other people. If you can't set it down properly then don't lift it, unless you are an olympic lifter and you drop the weight on pads. I've gone to failure on dumb bell presses several times and had no problem lowering them down.

    I've been clipped by some douchebag who dropped dumbells at the gym, therefore I hate it.

    As long as they aren't dropped by my toes - we don't have a problem. Sometimes I feel like throwing some weight around ( I think we all do at one point or another ), and you just learn to deal with it.

    I might drop the weights from a few inches off the ground when doing flat or decline DB pressing, but any more than that is retarded in my opinion.

    It's one thing if someone's doing it for attention/to look strong... It's another if they just finished a tough set of DB pressing and need to drop the weight from a couple feet...

    I agree that throwing weights is stupid, but I get bitched at for doing deadlights at my gym. I try not to make much noise, but it is really fucking impossible to deadlight 350lbs 3 sets of 8 without making any noise.

    I have no problem with the deadlifts. I just don't like dropping the DBs because they break eventually. I saw it happen with one of the 100s at my old gym. I'm glad someone didn't get hurt because that big retard decided to drop the DBs from lockout position on the bench.

    He shouldn't be doing that much weight

    And no because i lifted the same weight with ease and lowered it gently

    I was still focused on my workout but it's hard to concentrate when you got some idiot slamming 60kg onto the floor,it's alot of weight to just throw down

    I wouldn't mind if it was now and again but EVERY time it just gets stupid

    Anyway just my input
