    Gym Idiot Sightings 2007

    First of the year...sigh...trying to work with clients tonight was a nightmare.

    #1) Guy moving from talking on his cell phone to trying to pick up a hot girl to typing in his blackberry to reading a NEWSPAPER at 6:30 AT NIGHT!? He did 3 sets of bicep curls in 15 minutes that I saw.

    #2) People with no idea of space standing in front of every dumbbell rack.

    #3) The group of four douchebags doing cable crossovers for 25 minutes hogging the only double cable stack on that floor. Can't imagine doing a workout with three other guys.

    Any additions?
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    I hate when people stand right in front of the rack, or at its ends. The DB rack in my gym is parallel w/ the room and long, so there's only two ways to get on the other side of it, around the top and around the back. People have this fascination w/ standing right in one of these exits, not sure what it is.

    This guy at my gym - loads up for squats with 250 kilos - paces around grunts a bit looks real pumped - then drops it to 200 kilos (without doing even 1 rep of 250) starts to squat with about 2 centimeters of range. Buy the way this is the same guy who left his bright pink underwear on the back of the door in the shower - he now has the nickname PINKY!!!
    Dont be afraid to pass out or spew in a gym from total exertion. PUMP IT UP!

    just today i had to be kinda mean to a few idiot kids picking up their dumbells then not taking a step, doing curls right in front of the rack while blocking a good range of dumbells with their endless momentum dependant curl routine.

    Peeps it's that same time of year ... same shit every year at the gym. The wannabe's will clear out in a weak week or so after they fail miserably at their collective New Year's Resolution to look like Arnold by Feb. It is sooooo fricken annoying though. The lack of experience in the gym shows in the way these guys cut in or snatch your plates without asking if your done.

    Exactly.My gym is a popular one, every January I have to put up w/ gym retardation until they give up in february. The gym ethics arent even complicated yet msot people still fuck up.

    these two doing upright rows had way too much weight the bar. by the way they were jerking the weight up, you'd think they were oly lifters.

    I got a better idea. Read the stickies, STICK TO YOUR GOALS, and still be right here with us next year as we do what we do every year around this time ... piss and moan about the newbies. Of course that would mean you'd have to deal with being a stronger, leaner, sexier you. Sure eating an entire apple pie at bedtime would be a distant memory. So would the free time that gets replaced with updating your diet and your workout routines by doing proper research ... when your not lifting or doing cardio that is. Aaaaannd you should of course be prepared to handle the extra activities you'll finally get around to ... like looooooonger sex.

    So whadya say there Jaha ... ... can you hang out for a year? It'll change your life ...

    Who said it had to be sex with your wife?
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    Ditto. It wasn't long ago that I was lifting at Ballys that I saw the most ridiculous people ever. I lifted at one here in Philly and my god I'm so glad to be out of there. The people were rude, loud and this 1 guy always wore a Dallas shirt. What a dick. It does get really crowded around this time of year. You get the soccer Moms and a lot of young kids. For some reason they like to lift in groups.
