Nah why bother!! Too much work

I'll try and upload a short vid I took of a dude w tremendous dad bod..he loads 405 on the Smith for inclines and his ROM was literally 2"-3" at best.

Same dude would pin the preacher machine and budge the handle upwards an inch. I'm looking at this guy like WTF. I'm a dick so I walked over after his set and said sarcastically, "damn bro you strong AF,whats your secret?" He looks at me w a straight face and says all cocky-like "genetics dude,pure genetics" SMFH

Honestly everything and anything that annoys me in the gym boils down to one thing/concept... inconsiderate people

Regardless, if his ROM is only an inch then his back must be so damn far off the bench that it is comical.

Wide grip typically means he is training for competition. Did he seem like he was in a strong shape?
So here are the pics I promised. I also laid the rubber workout mat on one of the benches to show you all what he was doing.

Just that I've never seen anyone do benches this way. As I said, the amount of weight he was using on the bar does not match his body. His range of motion wasn't all that big either. When he did the 275 bench, he did arch his back to decrease the distance. The bar was set on the middle hooks and his grip was really wide where he was gripping a bit past the reference marks on the bar. I grip there and I'm 6'5". As I said, this guy is maybe 5'6" probably more 5'5" or 5'4".

It could be a thing there is little guy at our gym that lifts some good numbers that does the same sometimes but also has a roll out thin rubber thing he uses and believe its for traction like I said at least for him.

There are a few guys like that at our gym, it seems like it's more popular with the college crowd. If I remember correctly Schwarzenegger called out these guys in his bodybuilding book. Someone I can't remember called the no leg day routine the "lightbulb" workout.

Theft. I was trying to rehab a shoulder injury and couldn't find a dumbbell lighter than 8. I asked the desk and they said it had all been stolen. Management eventually replaced them, one day there were all these shiny new 3# and 5# dbs, and within a week they were all gone again. It also happened with the 2.5# plates.

People who ask you how many sets you have left, while you are in the middle of doing a set. Especially if they get agitated when you don't immediately answer.

The guy who said “a million” when I asked him how many sets he had left on the one working leg extension machine in the gym.

The blasting-my-music people. The gym already has its music and advertising going, and the volume competition when multiple people bring in their iphone stereo boxes is beyond irritating. Also not fond of the girl who SINGS ALONG TO THE MUSIC IN HER HEADPHONES REALLY LOUDLY AND CAN'T SING.

Too many ppl and poor odor management, which is why I left LA Fitness to re-join the Ymca. Every Y is different, this one is nice and people there are chill. Much more balanced atmosphere then some of the other gyms I've been in with guys who think they are weight lifting Gods for no reason.

I occasionally experience the between sets dancing singer around the platform-squat rack.

The dancing is annoying but the audacity of them thinking we want to hear their voice is too much.

Snapchatting to poses in the gym mirror when it is the second in your life in the gym and your arms are as big as my wrist. WTF Mate.
