I really hate people in the gym that know of nothing they are talking about and try to coach other people, even though I'm not a certified personal trainer or anything I know that "going only about 10 inches down" on squats aren't going to help much. I also don't like the people that go over to the smith machine and load 45 lb plates to do calf raises and then just leave the weight there without putting it back. What things that people do bother you the most in the weightroom?

people that think abs, striations and vascularity can be brought out by a certain exercise rather than fatloss through dieting and cardio

Agreed. Especially kids in my school that spread that idea.

Them to me: "High reps are for cutting up"

Me, thinking: "I want to kick your face in for every rep you do."
Me, actually saying: "Uh...no. Do some research."

A bunch of kids actually laughed at me for disagreeing with them. I brought in an article proving me right and they pretty much shut up.

People who don't wipe down the bench after using it?

People who hog equipment and talk instead of working out.

People who have invisible lat syndrome (Or what I call the shitty walk)

I hate people running around my feet when I'm using a bench or something else at the gym (well acually I hate people running around my feet allround)...anyway I was doing dumbell press and flyes yesterday and an old woman was running around the bench all the time..trying to squeze in between the rack and my bench and looking at what I was doing...so I just asked her if I can help her..

"Yes I wonder if I can borrow that bench when you are done?"
Sure you can I said..but I've just started pretty much..I'm alternating between two exercises you see...then there was 4 benches next to her! no one using them... I figured the reason was the dumbells she was holding was to heavy to move from the bench next to her to the rack...so instead she desided to hold on to the dumbells for 10min and the racking them...her workout was ....15min I guess if you don't count the time she spent looking at me and my friend...then she finished her "workout" with about 20min of stretching her legs with some movements I've never seen before...problobly no one else for the matter.


Another thing I acually told my friend yesterday, was that he has to stop telling me what to do when we are working out. I mean helping me with a forced rep and such is good, thats why I have a training partner if I can.
But if he starts to tell me what to do and how to do it..thats nothing I'm up for.. when I've been training for 7-8 years and he has been training for 3 years asking me how to train. In this case its just how he is though, he tends to want 100% controll even if he's not good for it.

I can bitch around about sh*t like this all day probably...but I wont

I cant stand when people are on their cell phones, or reading the paper in between sets. Especially when I am wanting to use whatever they are one, I will go up and tell them that I am taking it because I will get more out of it than them.

Also, I cant stand people who get done up to go to the gym. You shouldnt look pretty, or "fly" to workout.

Guys who do nothing but "bitch" bodyparts like chest and arms every day.

Boyfriends/Husbands who dont know shit about training, instructing their girlfriends/wives on how to train... idiots :no:. Or even worse, when a friend brings in another and tries to teach him how to weight train and has no clue what he is talking about. It pisses me off because he is teaching someone else to train like an idiot.

People not putting their weight up.

Terrible form is a huge pet peeve of mine. 1/4 squats as I call em, 1/2 bench reps, etc.. you guys know all the exercises where guys do terrible form. I just wish they would injure themselves now and get outta the gym.

I have many more things that annoy the hell outta me in the gym but this seems like a good enough list so far.

I 2nd that, I forgot to add this one to my long list :keke: Nothing is worse when a guy stinks up an area with B.O., also passing gas is one thing. But if your letting some off that makes it so that me and everyone in the vascinity cannot breathe, then you need to take your ass to the rest room!

teens groups doing bench press and doing like 10 sets and doing like 1-3 reps. that really bugs me

Soccer/football players doing bench press and arms every god damn day. often trying to max bench, the most stupid thing i´ve seen

fat ppl walking on treadmill, hey fatty try to run and you might even loose a pound. also ppl who pedal really slow on the bike, hate that

average joe, coming every 3rd day or weekends and doing the same thing and they ask why ain´t i gaining muscle, hmm i wonder why

powerlifters: 2 guys training partners talk for like 10 mins and then do a set, i really hate that when i´m waiting to do my squat. they do it mostly on squats, damn irritating.

bad form is number 1 i hate. half squat,1/4 of a squat, 1/4 rep on bench press, pullups going an inch down and then back up

People screaming at the top of their lungs doing reps. I can understand maybe a grunt or two when going to failure but starting out with a King Kong mating call is ridiculous.
