      - not putting weights away, DB or clearing the BB number 1 for me
      - making loud grunts granted if your pushing 3 plates on anything go for it, if you got 25's on each side shut you lips
      - if your working in with someone clean up your sweat before i start in
      - also the person who sits on a machine after doing a set for 5 minutes, and wont let you work in
      -dropping weights, DB or even the 25/35/45 plates
      add if you have more, just what comes to mind for me

      This ****er was curling in the only squat rack at school while I was waiting to squat and between every set he proceeded to talk on his cell phone. I almost lost it.

      I was getting frustrated today...we have 4 benches that aren't attached to a rack of some sort. Two were taken up by guys resting their forarms on the edge doing wrist curls.
      The other two had guys just sitting there resting b/t sets. I ask one of them if I can't work in. He ignores me, I ask again and he says sure, and want's to know if I want to use the same weight of 65lb..i pause to think for a sec b/c i usually warm up w/ 60's. Then he starts off w/ the drama of how they are probably not big enough and gives me one of these ....so I gave him a . He only did one more set and left.

      Yeah, me and my bro's were doing wrist curls on some benches, me with 65's, then this real big guy comes up and asks me to work in.. i ignored him at first, but he persisted so I said sure. I asked him if he wanted to use the same weights as I'm using.. and he looked up at the ceiling, so i started giving him sh*t. He gave me the raised eyebrow ala "the Rock" circa 1999. I did one more set and then left.

      Since the past four "that guy" threads have been canned since apparently talking about stuff that goes on at the gym isn't H&F related, I am gonna go ahaead and predict the same fate for this one. Also, it looks like talking about your progress with your Helath and Fitness isn't Health and Fitness related, either.
      It's all about squats and deads.

      im not going to say this grinds my gears, but have you ever seen people use the calf raise machine to do quarter squats? i want to tell them but at the same time i don't want to embarrass them, so i let it go.
      other than that i haven't seen any douchebaggery at my gym... yet. the weight area is generally not too busy and the only people in it are guys who are in decent to awesome shape. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emgift.gif[/IMG]

      technically that makes it a 3-way. especially if he/she didn't wash their hands in the restroom.
      im NOT looking forward to all the new years resolutioners. it's going to suck finding parking, but since they are all noobs i know they will probably just be using cardio equipment.
      oh another thing thats silly. people who park up on curbs and in illegal spots just to get close when theres TONS of parking in the back of the building. then they go in and jump on a hampster wheel. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]

      the old guys that wear sweat bands, look pregnant and just sit there in the way talking to all the other old fat guys.

      I'll admit I have been guilty of this, but then again I only did it when the gym was freakin packed, 90% of the equipment was taken up at the time.

      What's with the guys who stare at me while I do bicep curls in the squat rack? It makes me feel uncomfortable.
