    il admit iv interupted people to correct their form, whether i was a dick or not i dont care i jsut could sit back and watch someone give themselves a nasty injury. Iv seen people do in their back deadlifting, pop their shoulders out doing too heavy bad form presses scrweed up knees from bad stupidly heavy squats.

    I dont go around telling people how to correct obvious inbalances or workouts that will lead to them, might mention it to the on duty instructor or something but yeh my advice usualy is only the form of 'o shit he might hurt himself this rep let alone injuries down the line etc' as ambulance usualy = gym shut down for a bit or that area of it.

    i mean if people are working out so much that they get the classic turtle back from only doing chest and bicepts....i lol at them for trying to be cool and failing!

    O i also hate gyms that dont kick out or temp ban the clearly anorexic teen girls who come in and jsut go on a cardio machine for 2 hours looks like skeletor on a come down....they need to be stopped for their own good and the under 18 ones need to have their parents contacted to get them help!

    It depends, most of it is available through NSCA's website, which I'm sure you have to be a member of, but I get the research articles monthly. Most of the research can b found through any type of research gateway at a library.

    all of my rage.
    So much this. At my gym you can spot/smell them a mile away. They're always wearing some ridiculous outfits, and smell like they've been bathing in cologne.

    And I choose not to go to that type of gym because it stifles the physical effect I am trying to create in my body... You choose to go there, and work out the way you do, I choose to go to the gym that I go to, which focuses on explosive lifting, when I am not in the athletic complex at the college I work at, both of which highly promote this type of behavior.

    alot of the time good and upto date reviews / research will only be sumamrised in magazines, or you will need access to the journals online / delivered but they cost an arm and a leg! (free access from college and uni ftw!) older papers you amy be able to find through google / google scholar.

    But there is alot of contrasting findings where 2 papers can both claim opposites work, one key thing to remember is different people need to train differently...so few people understand that and give advice that is perfect for them yet may suck for someone else!

    People who only do upper-body exercises, neglecting their legs, core and abdominals.
    People who can bench +100 kilograms and who start to have an arched back (which is sad).
    People who look down on cardio training and think that it's only about pumping dumbells.
    Oh and people that don't clean up behing them!! (hate those the most!!)

    The people that annoy me most in the gym are the ones who talk on their cell phones while working out. I don't go to the gym to want to listen to someone elses personal conversations.

    Only people that bother me at the gym are the ones who do not wipe down machines after drenching them in sweat, and the people that think it is appropriate to sing out loud.

    True. And the loud people don't bother me... I have my headphones on, focusing on my own form and motions, so I don't really notice much of what other people are doing. Being loud (grunting, yelling, dropping weights, whatever) is against my gym's rules though, all I was saying.

    I used to do abdominals too, now I neglect them a lot.

    And I chose to neglect legs because I do cardio (running).

    oooo and people that think creatine is just healthy steroids! and have zero idea about what it actually does which is pretty much just a way to increase phosphate levels for faster ADP --> ATP turn over (for those who are a bit lax on biology ATP = how your body gets energy to put it in a really patronisingly simplistic and not very accurate way but i cant be bothered to explain so il just link this and tell you to read about the cycles it mentions to understand how it works :P http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adenosine_triphosphate )

    I second that!

    I hate the people that made me give up on the gym three times, the buffed predators looking at whoever is slightly chubby only to get closer and make fun of you...

    I seriously gave up 3 times so far only because of these kind of people.
    I'm not fat, i'm just a bit overweight, with a bmi of 25 i could use some workouts, but unless i find one of those "oldschool" gyms and not one of those 'bro-bars" i wont likely return.

    This isn't really people at gym but a friend of mine that only lives off whey and no carbs, any kind of meat, or fats. Even though I try to make him see the bigger picture he just gets skinnier and skinnier... Not to mention his hormone imbalance totally screwed up his body.
    ---
    And people that spend shit loads of money every month on everything they can get their hands on, ofc fat burners being the most popular but the least needed of all.

    1)the pricks that think they are hot shit and walk around all bowed out
    2)the idiots that sit down and chatter 10mins before each set and there is a gaggle of 4+ of them
    3)people that bump me during a set
    4)people that interrupt me during a set when it could wait 15secs.
    5)people that smell like a cross between mildew and summer sausage.

    Yep thats all of it.

    1. Personal trainers who try to sign you up to hire them... this trainer was saying I could get this really good discount for him, he said he couldn't do it since the system wouldn't let him drop the price that low, this is in LA Fitness.

    2. People who jump rope all around the gym like wtf... you don't need to do a full round around the gym.

    Oh yeah, god forbid people try and better themselves!*

    Everything about gyms, the whole culture of it. The bros working out, the instructors, the whole darn thing. People who judge themselves on how big their muscles are or how much they can lift, it's pathetic. Just be happy with yourself, instead of always having to go on about it.

    - Asshats who are like predators (read: bloodhounds) to get to use a machine you are using.
    -People who occupy 2 machines at once, even though they are using one only atm.
    -People like a friend of me who recently started lifting seriously and follows a plan given to him by an instructor, I have been lifting for 3 years. He instantly thinks he knows it all and that he knows it better than me (claiming instructors are flawless and know it all).....I can get pretty angry at this. He gained a little muscle and thinks he knows it all. Oh well...
    The ones who are working out. They really piss me off.

    OK well i got a great story for you guys, its the mother of all anoying little tidbits youll ever encounter at the gym.

    About to years ago, my buddy got me to start lifting. I wasn't that great, but he was awesome at it. At one point benching 305 pounds while only weighing 148 himself, apperently thats very impresive because I sure as hell was very impresed. Any way, one day where doing are usealy routine and he gets a call, and has to leave right then and their. Hes my ride so i end up calling my mom to come get me, and waiting for about an hour for her to arrive and pick me up. In that time i decided "hey ill take a shower" so i walk into the lockeroom, disrobe, and comense the showering. Wasent too keen on it, being a very shy person, but the place was fairly empty so I though id make it quick and gtfo. In the middle of the shower an older gentelmen walked around to where I was and stared at me for an acwardly long time.

    Just a Crazy amount of time.

    I asked if he wouldent mind not coming so close and he says verbatim "That's a nice looking member you got their kido" directing his face at my "member". Me being the eternal optimist thinking back now,it may have been some what flatering being hit on by a man, however I was guenualy mortified at the time and walked out literaly right affter that all went down. Got dressed and decided "hey, I should probably tell someone what just happened" and went and found a worker at the gym and did just that. I am directed to someone to talk to about this and when I explained what happend the man said "oh thats teddy, he likes to do that some times".

    Just so where all clear here they knew that their is an older gentlemen, whom is a member of their guy, that activly sexualy harrases men of all ages in their guy showers and do nothing about it.

    All and all, its more of a funny story now that I've grown abit.

    tl:dr Old people annoy me at the gym, not all old people, specifically the ones who molest you with their eyes.
