I hate people doing 60lb curls either in the squat rck or just with a bar they took from a bench when they could've used the preloaded bars. If your curling anything below 135 you don't need the 7' bar. That and the fucking talkers, it's a gym not Facebook. But I'm glad I workout out at home now I think I actually get better workouts having to pick my weights up from the floor for any exercise and put them down gently cuz it's an apartment and has wood floors.
I was at the gym tuesday. The kid next to me is doing flat dumbell bench. With 60lb dumbells. on his last sets, he basicslly came down to the bottom of the press and just threw them down.
I was doing seated shoulder presses with 80s and i managed to put them down quietly.
No one is impressed with you throwing 60lb dumbells around from the flat bench.
But it pisses me off when i grab them to curl and the heads are falling off or fucking loose
People who wear tshirt 10 times to small for them!!
And also people who Don't use proper form there's this dude at my gym he must be easy 6ft something arms like spaghetti total pigeon chest skinny mo fo! Goes to the squat rack puts on 100kgs and continues to squat no more then half way down shout things like "lightweight" in between sets then adds more weight and continues to do squats with even less ROM I was so close to just saying something.. I think it's the fact he's grunting like fuck and shouting Ronnie colman quotes that annoy me!

The workers at my gym are pretty lazy. I guess my biggest pet peeves are with them. Cables and pulleys not being maintained, not enough oil, too much friction. DB heads falling off like ct67 72 said. Torn bench covers, dirt EVERYWHERE. Mirrors with dried spittle on them in front of the squat racks. DB racks all out of order, weight stacks all piled together. Not to mention no goddamn exhaust fan in the bathroom. Some fat guy is dropping a nuclear bomb in there every time I walk in.
forgot about that one. While the kid throwing 60s on the floow was inbetween sets, and I was looking for 70's to shoulder press with, I rearranged all the dumbells to their proper place. Looked like he may have had soemthing to do with it so i did it as loudly as possibly while staring him down.
Me too man, that shit's just mean brother...just mean!
I wish gyms were like in Arnold's day when you could train shirtless and really see the development. Plus it would scare off all of the people who load up 10's on the bar and curl in MY squat rack.
no shit or just because a trainer is helping someone with plyo, they think they can take over anything in their way.... including u sometimes.....
I bring a towel with me to the gym, I do spray down and I do use paper wipes for equipment when I need to but I love my towel to wipe my face or whatnot, i also LOVE to wear the spaghetti strape tshirts (like the one in my avatar) yes, if I am doing legs, i wear shorts, i want to see the muscles I am working out, when I do back chest or shoulders, i wear the spaghetti straps. I aint bragging , I just getting myself in the zone.
big pet peeve is NOT finding dumbells where they ought to be cuz some douche wants to go down a rack but cant do it in front of the rack, he takes 2-3 sized weights, then does a set, dissappears for a while or the guy who doesnt strip his fucking bars and i am waiting for a the squat rack or for a machine or for a bench and like an asshole, i wait and no one is using it cuz the last asshole left it full.
1.People who sit there and talk to you when you have your EarPhones In!!! Stop talking to me! I'm raging! I mean I'm focused! What's wrong with you???
2.People who stop using a machine and only feel they are "rested" and ready to use the machine again ONCE you walk over and start your set "I'm using that still bro"
Ohhh are you? Then why the hell did you walk away huh? Huh? Tell me???? Ahhhhhh

The biggest one is a group of people occupying a rack/bench and doing more talking than lifting. That's followed closely by a group of people occupying multiple racks when they're clearly all together.
I have a new pet peeve.
I hate the lazy bastages that have four or five 10-kilo or 5-kilo plates on each side of their bar, which means when the gym is busy there aren't enough of them for everyone else. Very soon I'll add plate-swapping to my anti-annoyance repertoire, along with walking in front of the guy doing dumbbell curls right in front of the dumbbell rack, standing in the squat rack while someone's trying to do curls, and sitting on the bench next to the guy who won't let anyone work in.
1. Body builders thinking they are the shit just because they are cut/toned... wake the fuck up people. I bench 705, squat 900, and dead 865 on my max 1 rep... what can you do bitch?
2. People who don't use the squat rack, occupy every other bit of space in the gym, and then get pissy when a guy is stuck doing curls in the squat rack because every other pos in the gym thinks they need 10 pieces of equipment and 20 feet of space around them at once.
3. Guys thinking they are hard just because they train often. Serve 5 years like me and then maybe you can talk some shit, until then.. back off or i'll skull fuck you.
4. Guys that are more worried about smell, look, or other guy's workouts than just going in and getting the job done.
Back in the day there were signs all over the gym - "YOUR MAMA DON'T WORK HERE; PUT YOU SHIT BACK!" Those signs worked! Now we have signs that say "Please re-rack your weights when done. Thank You". Yeah - that's gonna work!
