    Gym etiqqute/grievances.. post them here.

    The dude who carries a weight lifting belt on his shoulders, while going from machine to machine. Over the past 6 months, I have never seen you use it so why bring it in? You don't look bad-ass when you walk around with it on your shoulder like you are some primo WWF star. Heck you are not even as big as some of the gorrilaz around the gym!

    The woman who puts one article that she brings on 5 machines while she does a circuit around them. Not cool.

    The people who yak on their cell phones while on the treadmill. STFU and HTFU.

    And no I dont want to get more out of my bike workouts! (Random guys asked me this questions as I was sitting there doing some recovery paced riding)

    Doing curls with the dumbbells right in front of the dumbbell rack so that no one else can grab a weight. Back the f*ck up.

    The gorilla that tells me I'm not putting enough effort into my curls. Then he goes back and swings his whole body to curl up his heavy weights. Learn some freaking form instead of being "cool" with the large dumbbells.

    That one bugs the crap out of me as well. The worst offenders though are the folks who sweat all over the equipment and don’t wipe off. Gross.

    And for heavens sake, no shaving whilst naked in the gym!! wtf? It would be one thing if the locker room was nice, its pretty dumpy! Actually even then there is no excuse for not wrapping a towel around your waist when you shave.

    The grunter. I don't mind a manly exhalation, but when you start sounding like a teenaged Russian girl tennis player, it's time to put a cork in it.

    The old men who sit there naked in the locker room... for a long time... not really doing anything... but sitting there naked...

    And the people who chuck talc around the place, that just turns into a nasty white paste on the floor.

    That's very direct reference to Sharapova, by far the biggest grunter in WTA. I used to follow women's tennis, but the grunting turned me off.

    I really hate the guys that, without asking, jump on your equipment when you're between sets.

    I really hate the people that run on the treadmill when it is a beautiful day outside.

    I really hate the guys who still wear Zubaz to the gym.

    The guy who puts his weight belt on a bench or machine as to reserve it's use while he goes jaw jacking for 10 minutes and then gives you this "hey" look when he returns and you're on that piece of equipment.

    When somebody gets off the bench and just leaves. Not wiping it down and that leaves me standing there watching the yucky sweat dissipate.

    the guy that goes to the gym and spends all his time rotating from equipment to equipment trying to look busy even though he's not lifting/running etc. MAN THE F*CK UP AND EITHER TEACH YOURSELF HOW TO DO IT OR ASK SOMEONE!

    I hate people occupying a particular machine for half an eternity.

    A couple of years ago, I went to the gym for a leg workout. I usually do that with the 45-degree incline leg press as the main exercise.

    But that time, there was a couple (a guy and a girl) using it. The guy was built like the proverbial brick outhouse, and the girl was fairly big for a girl. The sled was loaded with plates all the way out, and the two of them did maybe four or five 3-inch reps each... Then they just sat around for 4-5 minutes, chatting, right next to the machine. Suddenly, they'd do another set each, and resume their chatting. I did all my other stuff, and then gave up after well over an hour of waiting for them to finish. 80-90 minutes for two people using one machine, is NOT acceptable in my book!

    UGH, I remember having to use a treadmill at the gym that had been sweated (is that a word?) on so much that there were actually pools of sweat in the little cup holders, and the entire machine was a sticky mess of sweat. But it was the only open machine in the damn building, so I was forced to use it or leave.

    There's a kid at my gym that just gripes me to no end......

    I do a heavy weight workout on the leg press, doing reps at 600, then 550, then 500 pounds, 20 each set. I know this 18 year old twerp means well, but if I have to hear that I'm pretty strong for a geezer, I'm gonna wrap a barbell around his neck

    Then I have to explain why I'm doing light long reps on the upper body....I don't want to puck up upper body mass, just harden and tone what I have there. I'm a blasted cyclist and too much upper body development just consumes Blood O2.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    At my gym, we're provided with spray bottles with some kind of cleaning fluid, along with rolls of paper, for cleaning the equipment off with. Personally, I don't mind if I use a machine with sweat on it. I always clean my own sweat off afterwards, though.

    Seriously though, this thing was DIS-GUST-ING. There wasn't a clean square inch on it--I'm not even joking. I used my knuckles to change the settings. The gym I used to go to didn't have the spray bottles and towels... the one I go to now does.

    Does it have to be in the gym? If not one thing that really bugs me for no reason are the soccer moms who wait several min for a parking spot near the door. Then make the short walk into the gym to walk on the tread mill. WHY?????
