I didn't stop him, just shook my head in disgust. My thought was with all that gear he was wearing he had to be aware of what proper form should look like. I think he was just trying to put on extra weight to avoid girls outlifting him(he was only deadlifting 185lb).

My question; should I have stopped him, or is he getting what he deserves? Most people wouldn't be susceptive to the help anyway so my thought was why should i even bother. Has there ever been a time when you have stopped someone because you were literally concerned for them hurting themselves?
I stop and say something every time. I would feel bad if they got hurt and I didn't because they obviously don't know. Whether it is just being uneducated or taking advice from a bro science friend... I feel at least saying something.

Then again, I think Iowa is a bit different than where all you jagoffs live based on the things that annoy you and what you do in response.

ONE advantage to being old: nobody gives me shit for using the 20lb dumbbells.
I worked out with my gf a while ago (she rarely ever does weights, more into cardio stuff). We did back and bi's. To finish off for the night, I gave her 7.5's and I grabbed 20's

She hit me with the whole "isn't this too light for us?"

She was definitely dying after the first set lol

I left my ego at home years ago. As long as I feel it, my form is good, and I know I'm making progress, I don't care how "light" the weights may be

Doesn't apply to weights, but if I learn nothing else from yoga, I'm glad I learned that.

Probably been stated before. But what in the FUCK is wrong with imbeciles who can't put dumbells in the correct spot they came from? I'll sit here and wait for any logical response.

Some people like to work hard. This means working till failure. After failure you can't lift those anymore, obviously. The only logical thing is to go grab another pair of slightly lighter dumbells and repeat.

I'm sorry that you don't work as hard as some others.

Just love the idiots who just sit in their damn car with the headlights on parked right next to one of the gym walls. Why I'm annoyed by this is this particular wall is all window/glass from the ground up to half the height of the wall. Along this wall are parking spots for cars where the parked cars are literally about 2 feet away from the window.

So these fools that just sit there with their cars idling and headlights on are beaming us in the gym. And if the car is parked in some spots, the headlights would hit the mirrors along the free weight area further causing issues as the beam of light is being reflected by the mirrors. Some chick after working out tonight decided to sit in her car for a few minutes while blinding us in the gym. I wanted to walk outside and smash her headlights.

Those people are assholes, but that is also a very poorly designed gym. Whoever designed that should be kicked in the face.

Yep. The gym is poorly designed. Makes me wonder if there was something else here before the gym was stood up in this commercial space. But unfortunately, unless they get rid of those parking spaces, we're stuck with dealing with these inconsiderate people.

My gym has a full size pool so high schoolers practice there daily. I usually am done work around 2:30-3:30 so that puts me at the gym around half hour later which just so happens match up with the practice times of the swimmers half the time. Only one locker room that allows you to change which is shared by the swimmers.... They always fucking soak the floors not to mention im not all to fond of being surrounded by highschoolers in their fucking speedos.... just an awkward situation. That pool must be filthy, they're always taking shits barefoot(this in general grosses me out) prior to getting in that pool.

Mine is in a similar generic warehouse building. The line of windows that get the high beams from cars are highly tinted.

I learned a long time ago that early morning workouts were best for me. I'm at the gym between 3:30am-4:00am each morning. Been doing that for the last 10+ years.

I don't sleep that much anyway, and only the hardcore or idiots (like me) are around at that time.

So I get to avoid a lot of these issues you read about on here thank God!

I just got myself unthawed. This 10,000 KB swing workout is kicking my butt.

Gym was freakin' packed tonight! I don't get how some of these guys can get a decent workout when there's 5 of them all working out together? I timed it. On the flat bech press soon as one guy finishes they adjust the weight for the next guy which took about 10-15 sec. Than after he finished the 3rd guy would jump in while the other guys again would adjust the weight accordingly. After the 5th guy completed his set it was back to the first guy which basically 10 minutes probably went by? That's 10 freakin' minutes between sets

The other thing I dunno if you guys consider it annoying are guys who are big...and I don't mean like muscle big or even fluffy but act like their big by sticking out their chest and lift their arms up as if they have huge lats? I find it freakin' funny

Anything over 2 people is a pain in the ass, but even then I prefer working out alone. No clue what is going through half of these idiots heads during their workouts, probably just there for the social aspect of it (the part I hate lol).

One chick at my gym does this, but she's actually pretty muscular. Definitely adjusting her hormones haha.
