    more and more, i realize i am the most annoying person in my gym. i use chalk. i hurl my weights. i take all the pins so all the cable stations are mine. i yell loudly. i sweat on shit and never wipe it. i used to hit myself with juice in the locker room. i walk around the locker room naked and talk to people. i ignore people who ask for spots unless i deem the weight on the bar to be at non-bitch levels. i don't put my weights back. i train shirtless.

    Sometimes I'll get on the treadmill for maybe 5 minutes as a warmup [​IMG]


    I like to see what others are doing at the gym. Never know where you might get a good lift from. Then there's the squat rack curlers to glare at.....



    as in the people who get on it for 5 mins, walk around for 35 mins, and then leave.


    Adding this one:

    The person who stretches right in front of you as you are squatting or benching or doing somthing with a bar that size. And complains when you are moving the bar too close to him and asks you to move.

    Aka he is stretching under the bar pretty much.

    none of that really bothers me. I just hate the guys who hold the squat rack for stupid shit. I don't see why chalk should bother anybody - would it be prefereable to have you drop wieghts one somebody because your hands are slipery?

    although, thinking about it, leaving sweat on stuff is pretty gross.

    My gym has various punching bags, speed bags, and other martial arts equipment... While I am practicing my moves or sparring, I see this dumb looking guy come in and do a few kicks on the heavy bag, but his feet are hitting the part of the bag that would substitute for the location of another mans shins. I mean if you don't have any martial arts experience, why make yourself look like a fool? The guy punches the bag like a women hits her kid, he sweats all over the damn bags,m and wears lifting gloves to punch the bag. Total idiot.

    I try very hard top be defferential to those vwho are stronger and more experienced then my newb self. However that's just unacceptable. How many people have you beaten to death to protect your right to this megalomania.

    Definitely some annoying behaviour, but I'm assuming you work out at a gym where it's somewhat appropriate, and you actually have a physique that indicates you know what the hell you're doing. I go to a very generic downtown gym, and the few large guys we have, I figure probably should be permitted to be a little over the top. Our pins are attached to the machines, so there's no stealing to be done. Here's another annoying person at the gym: the dude who showers in a swimsuit (generally kids) or in his underwear. Saw a guy actually showering in his undies the other day, which he took off halfway through, I guess when he realized no one was interested in his junk.

    Not that I want to see you naked but I could understand a guy in shape walking around the locker room naked. I cannot understand the fat, skin tagged, saggy, old POS walking around or sitting naked with his legs all spread in the locker room when he should not even be naked in the privacy of his own home. I just do not get it. At all. Really.

    1.) I find it off-putting, when two women are chatting for half an hour, right next to my stationary bike. The pedals on their bikes are moving about as fast as the second hand on a clock - AND THEY ACTUALLY THINK THEY'RE WORKING HARD!

    2.) I admire people who are desperately unfit and trying to change. Good luck to them - they should be fully supported. But then you have those, who claim that they have slow metabolism - when in fact they are stuffing their faces with crap every night. One guy gets really angry at ANY suggestion that he might not be eating correctly. Last week I was in my local Cafe Nero (for a low fat, sugar free coffee) and there he was, stuffing his cake-hole with... er... cake. He knew, that I knew, that he knew... etc, etc. The look of his embarrassment was priceless.

    3.) The one armed guy (must be the case) who hides a single 2.5KG plate. The next day, it magically reappears.

    4.) This is more of a, why do they do that? There's a guy of about twenty who comes in regularly. He's about 6'2" and without a doubt, the most emaciated person I've ever seen. He probably has a serious eating disorder; for which he has my sympathy. Yet, he always wears the skimpiest of shorts and a body hugging vest, summer & winter. His knee joints are almost wider than his upper leg. Why not just wear track suit bottoms? Then people wouldn't stare at you all the time. He proceeds to do an hour of cardio, then leaves.

    5.) The couple of lesbian porn stars, who are constantly suggesting that I take part in ungodly acts. - WHILE I'M TRYING TO GET ANOTHER REP OUT. Can you believe it. Have people no consideration! In fact, I'm going to have a word with the management about this. It's getting ridiculous now. I'm sure I saw one peeking around the shower enclosure the other day.

    Edit: Actually, I made up number five.

    There is a one armed man that works out at my gym. He was pretty skinny when he first started but now is formidable and I would refer to him as sinewy or stringy.

    I would say something to him about his progress but I am sure he knows and I do not bother people at the gym.

    Great stuff [​IMG] He can do it, yet the lardy wobble-bottoms have a thousand reasons as to why it won't work for them. Inspirational stuff.

    I believe that the drummer from Def Leppard is still bashing the skins, despite losing an arm in a motorcycle accident.
