    ^ i am a royal dick in the gym, too. i make certain that all the benches have at least 225lb on them at all times because i tell these teen guidos you're not entitled to bench unless you start with 225.

    Mine has to be the very Fat Chick who I see working out daily with PT for an hour. Been seeing her at the Gym for over a year now (and I understand she has been there for much longer) and she is still just as fat.

    All the excercise in the wold isn't going to help her until she learns the "push away"

    The funniest thing I have seen at the gym recently was the same fat chick getting her hamstrings stretched out by her trainer. She is lying on her back one leg up in the air, trainer leans in with his shoulder to stetch her leg, and she lets out this massive fart.

    The squat rack curlers who use their backs to swing up the bar are always a favorite.

    That is just NASTY. Would you happen to know who she ate for breakfast?

    I got another one. There was this couple in the area of my gym where you do ab work on some thick mats. The guy was overweight and looked kind of out-of-place (a computer nerd type). His girl was doing some crunches and leg raises, while he was lying on his side talking to her. This was one lazy guy. He went off and did a set of seated machine preacher curls and came staggering back for a lie down.

    There is also this old guy who is in to mobility training. He uses 1kg dumbbells - they're pink - and swings his arms in all directions. What a dick!

    I am beginning to feel like I've been missing out on too much action the last two weeks.

    Any weighted exercise on a Bosu ball. You're asking for a blown ACL.

    Trainers trying to correct my deadlift form when I'm not even sure they can spell 'deadlift.'

    Guys who do flies with the massive 20 pound dumbbells, drop them at the end of the set, and look around to see who noticed the noise.

    People who ask me why I'm doing squats with the bar across my clavicles.

    If they smell like fresh-cut flowers, then you will be getting some attention!

    Do you also emit whilst doing squats? I tend to let go when doing incline DB bench and I'm not proud to admit it.

    Another: a guy in his 20’s, cut, with no visible fat at all, comes into the gym with a steely gaze. This be a fit mofo, methinks. He gets on the treadmill and sets it to 6+ mph, and then starts not so much running, but striding / hopping (like a gazelle if you can picture it). Thought he was going to faceplant for sure. Best part was he was holding onto the rails the whole time. Perhaps this was a principal dancer of some sort, I could not bear to look further.

    ^ Might have been some sort of plyo drill. I've seen sprinters do weird things like that.

    Edit: was referring to Spatlese's post, not the groaning/orgasm one.
