this. grunting on your heavy set or on your last rep is entirely fine, but don't make a spectacle out of yourself.

eh, whatever, grunting I don't mind.

but throwing plates and letting them roll around, that's bullshit. dude just roidbenched 400 and he can't put 45 lbs down on the ground? fuck

Always ... and it's my home gym.

^ whenever I'm home at my parents' place I do the same thing, even though I'm the only person that uses the home gym. And I rerack rather neurotically when I'm in the gym. I don't want to be perceived as a douchebag, so I'll rerack if I'm going to finish up my last set after I go do another couple sets of a different exercise.

I also leave my towel on the bench so I don't have my skin on it (not so much for everyone else, but me) so i don't have a problem when i need to get water. I'm also very conscious when I refill my bottle, and will always let people go while I wait to fill er up. People at the gym are great with this but then you have ashole parents in the parks who fill up 80 water balloons with their kids while your sweating, panting waiting for some water....assholes.

Get over yourself. Children and their balloons come ahead of tired, dirty, old men creeping around in parks.

As I go to th gym to lift, I don't really care if weights are racked or not. It just means more walking around and moving things around. Not too much of a big deal. I'm not a pansy.

Oh yeah, I rack my weights though.

Depends. Always on the benches since people often need to move around the bars. However, for some of the machines at my gym there is a a bit of a convention to leave an average amount of weights on all the time. It's assumed that whoever uses them next will be likely to need them anyway. It works for me.

I've found people in the gyms at hotels to be the worst offenders.

I always put dumbbells back (unless someone is waiting to use the bench and wants the same weight), barbells have the plates either left on them or on the floor (nowhere to actually put them, if they had a rack I'd use it), but tbh if someone just lifted 30kg and I want to lift 20kg I'd rather take off 10kg than put 20kg on.
