    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.
