My Personal Gym Shit List

Fear The Bulge's picture
Rank: King Kong | banana points 1,834

Welcome to a personal rant. I don't care that this looks like a Buzzfeed listicle, because I've got a bone to pick and my opinions matter the most.

Here are the five types at my gym that I wish would instantly disappear, leaving only me and the other swole gods, and a bunch of hot girls.


1) Projectile Sweaters

These dudes (they're always male) are usually the size of a refrigerator, have a towel draped uselessly around their necks, and in addition to spraying their nasty sweat everywhere, like to drink water by pouring into their mouths from a distance and getting at least half of it on the weight rack. Bonus point for rocket body hair that ends up on me from ten feet away.

2) Dumb Instagram Bitches

Maybe you're a 10. If you're an actual 10, spend all the time posing and twerking in front of the weight rack you want, honey. But more likely, you're a 5 with a doomed New Year's Resolution. Get the fuck away from the mirror, I need it to admire my own perfect form.

3) Erik

Erik thinks we're friends because, for a while, we would spot each other on the bench without speaking. He had to fucking ruin it by asking me to come with him to his brother's DJ night at a club in Jersey.

4) Cardio Boy-Men

These 115-pound lightweights spend two hours on the treadmill everyday in the winter but aren't willing to work in a god damn 5 minute lifting set. These are grown men wearing women's headbands, for god's sake. If you need a headband, you need a haircut (and a shrink for your gender issues). Your marathon shirt from 2014 smells like shit. Go to Central Park and run from the hobos at night. Leave the cardio machines for the old people trying to stave off death for one more day.

5) Snitches

I bring performance-enhancing drugs (and other substances) to the gym. Obviously a flask of Woodford and Creatine is coming with me, as is my little bottle of pre-workout with a few drops of liquid molly, on occasion. My workout is my business. My life is my business. However, some nosy motherfuckers (probably the 80something widow with an idiotic amount of money who lives on my new floor) have made it their business too, and now the gym manager - a tightwad bitch who glares at everyone while they exercise, who, because this is a "boutique" gym with "elite" clientele, probably gets paid almost a quarter of what I make to basically wipe jizz out of the shower - has eyes all over me, and not in a way like she wants to fuck me (though I definitely could/would bang).

There's a perpetually fat guy and often very smelly guy at my gym who basically does that with a bit more pulling. Just waiting for homeboy to throw his back out.

Oh man shit people come up with

Feb 8, 2017

You forgot about the guy who asks "How many more sets left? Can I work in?"

    • 7
Feb 8, 2017

slightly disagree. my gym only has 3 benches and 3 power racks, so you legit need to stake it out like a vulture, but at a safe distance. I never ask to work in, because it's not that big a deal, but I hate when someone's like "can I work in?" and then you find out they're doing something that requires you stripping the weights each time and changing the setup, fuck that.

also hate the guys that do ridiculously long rep schemes during prime time. I actually had someone tell me they had 12 sets of bench left...after they had already done 5. this is the YMCA, not westside barbell.

FTB, love "Erik." there's one bro like that at our gym who gives everyone the upward "sup?!" nod everytime he sees you, even if he's never introduced himself, and always says things like "NICE" (when you lift anything over 135) and "you gettin it in huh?!" shut the fuck up dude, it's one thing to be friendly, but you're just sad.

maybe this is just at my prole gym, but I hate old lifters. we have this group of about 8 of em that take literally every dumbbell and 3 weight benches for about 45 minutes. they wear weight belts for doing bicep curls, fingerless gloves to do bench press with 30lb dumbbells, and never get out of the way if you're trying to walk past because they're too busy comparing colonoscopy prep notes. it's like jesus marvin, I have 90s in my hands, can you not stand with your ass right over my face?!

whenever I get a house with a garage, I'm building my own gym, power rack, sauna, and most of all: no talking.

Feb 8, 2017

I am fine with working in as long as we are doing the same exercise/weight. Unloading and re-loading plates is a major annoyance.
Agreed on the home gym. Either a basement or garage will be turned into a home gym with a sauna at some point in my life

The awkwardly nice guy just sounds like a funny situation but could get annoying after awhile. My old gym had the guy who would do the "WHAT'S UP" chin nod while throwing a backwards and sideways peace sign. Fucking stupid of him but he was the nicest dude ever, so can't complain too much. Everything you said is on point though.

hate grunting, I rarely hear it though because my gym playlist is "Just Dance" on max volume.

I will say people make unnecessary noise, one bro got a charlie horse in the locker room and you would've thought he got shot in the kidney, I've never heard that kinda scream in my life.

Feb 8, 2017

i never understood those motherfuckers who insist on performing their dumbbell exercises directly behind the dumbbell rack. I dont feel bad at all when i have to make them step to the side during their exercise so i can grab some weights.

Feb 8, 2017

I hate it when someone leaves their water/towel at the machine. I'm always left with the moral conundrum--do I take the machine because someone simply forgot their water or do I find another machine because the person will be "right back"?

Another pet peeve of mine is when I go to a gigantic gym at a weird hour when it's practically empty and the ONE machine I need to finish up my workout is being used by the one other person in the gym. Ugh!!!

Also, cardio-boy. Yeah, I mean, I thought modern exercise science has pretty much demonstrated how worthless long-distance running is in comparison to strength training.

Feb 16, 2017

Ditto - what to do with the lonely water bottle on the bench.
I am studying at the moment so go to anti-social hours at the gym, for some reason the 4 squat racks are ALWAYS taken..

Also anyone who does curls with the barbell.

Feb 8, 2017

Starting Strength. Page 280.

"The problem [with curved bar curls] is that it doesn't work. EZ Curls are not nearly as effective as straight-bar curls for recruiting bicep contraction. This is because the degree of supination of the forearm and hand directly affects the amount of bicep in contraction, as discussed earlier. The EZ Curl bar does in fact take the stress of supination off of the wrists and elbows, but it does so at the expense of a quality bicep contraction. The camber of the bar is specifically intended to decrease the supination of the forearm, and anything less than full supination results in a less-than-complete biceps contraction."

But yeah don't do them IN a rack intended for other exercises. One of the exercises can be done anywhere, the other can't.

    • 5
Feb 8, 2017

SB'ed, thanks for that. Been wasting my time with the EZ bar apparently...

Feb 8, 2017

I wouldn't be so quick to disregard EZ bars, using barbells for curls takes its toll on your wrists.

I love rippetoe but his platitudes are just that. his advice is a great starting point, but once you're beyond the basics, and assuming you're not wanting to go into competitive powerlifting, you have to question it. for example: the low bar squat. is that really the best thing for someone with a different skeletal structure than him? I can tell you it's not, plenty of olympic style squatters put up huge numbers.

on the curl stuff, I can see how that makes sense, but rip's arms aren't exactly what most guys shoot for. arnold on the other hand, used both straight and ez bar...so I dunno that it makes THAT much of a difference.

There's a guy that does a whole shadowboxing routine right next to the squat rack while you're using it, and every single time before he squats. Occasionally he switches it up for a "swish" free throw motion.

Feb 8, 2017

Special shoutout to the dudes who go to the gym... only to do a bodyweight workout. At Gold's Gym in downtown Austin, there was a guy who would go during peak time and flail around the free weight with all kinds of tricks. Doing the pull-up-then-windmill-your-legs-perpendicular-to-the-floor-so-nobody-else-can-get-within-ten-feet-of-the-entire-cable-rig was a common one. Just do sit ups. Throw in a twist if you have to. Jesus.

I walked in one Saturday morning and saw him walking on his hands in the aisle between the bench and the squat racks. Multiple "sets" of aisle-blocking handstand walks. At the end of the workout I went to the front desk and cancelled my membership, finally realizing that I can afford to/am willing to pay at least double to avoid this shit.

There is an element of the population that is neither self-conscious nor self-aware. Some of them may score fairly high on the sociopath chart.

Feb 8, 2017

I'm a bodyweight exercise dude for most of the upperbody stuff - but I don't do fucking ab windmills or whatever they are called. I'll still go to the gym for bodyweight shit because I don't exactly have pullup bars in my apartment and don't have the weights for weighted pullups/dips, etc. Plus the gym has rings, boxes, etc...

I moved to a new city and started at a high-end gym, and my god do I miss my hometown gym. Back home, we had the Gold's Gyms where you'd find the roided out dbags, etc., but not my gym. The new gym has those (so I'm not complaining about city). Most of my complaints are appearance-based, and I know that makes me a judgmental douche as well, but oh well.

-Those fucking "muscle" tanktops that look like women's sports bras...You know the ones that have a skinny strap on the back (https://www.etsy.com/listing/238969353/workout-tan...).
-Wearing a sweatshirt with the hood up while working out - I get it if you are a competitive wrestler and you're trying to make weight or whatever...but you look like a fucking tool otherwise.
-Those toe shoes. Good God I am glad those are disappearing. I actually have no problem wanting to work out in their socks or whatever, but those shoes make you look like a damn gecko.
-Those high-altitude oxygen masks. Are you trying to look like Bane? Here's an idea - cut your rests shorter and do an exercise that gets your heart going faster (think HIIT). Not only do they look stupid as fuck, but they probably aren't doing much on your 10-rep box jumps with a 2-minute rest between the next set.

    • 3
Feb 8, 2017

Also, those oxygen marks do nothing related to simulated altitude training. It's merely restricting your airflow, not thinning the air. So if you're trying to get some hypoxic training in (as competitive swimmers often do) strap it up, Bane. If not, you're creeping everybody out.

Feb 8, 2017

Yep, seen two people wearing them in the month I've been there. Stupid. Also, love when people where weightlifting shoes but only do upperbody exercises. I'll give them some benefit that they may have done leg work when I didn't see them, but if not...

Feb 9, 2017

I once got into a conversation with a dude who was wearing Do-Wins to the gym and maybe squatted something like 185. He was telling me that he absolutely had to wear those shows because otherwise, he wouldn't be able to hit depth. Afterward, he proceeded to do quarter squats.

Leggings / tights on dudes. Especially without any shorts over them. Where I live it is ~70 degrees, why do you need those? Aren't you already warm?

Mentioned above, but Bain masks drive me nuts.

The fitness industry is arguably the breeding ground for weird gimmicks isn't it?

Bain masks suck, I much prefer McKinsey ones.

The ONLY time it is suitable for a man to wear leggings is when they're doing the NFL combine.. and I'm sure the guys who go to my gym aren't in Mel Kiper's big board

great post. these are some of the reasons I go to the gym at 4:30 AM.

Feb 9, 2017

Agreed. Best time ever.

Feb 9, 2017

Woodford and creatine...mmmm...

Feb 9, 2017

lol, you guys will like this guy's gym idiots series.

Feb 9, 2017

Not a fan of the guy talking - way too monotone for my taste - but good clips for the most part. Some of those are just unfortunate accidents. And the rest are just fucking stupid.

The one type of gym guy you guys forgot to mention is the jersey/shersey who rocks a near full uniform while working out.. I MEAN COME ON KOBE BRYANT WAS RIGHT NEXT TO ME MAN I CAN'T BELIEVE IT

Feb 10, 2017

Yeah, true. Got one guy to get fully outfitted by MJ himself, though.

Has been mentioned before but: Curls in the squat rack especially as my gym only has one squat rack.

I understand some rep schemes require a lot of sets, like various powerlifting pyramids designed to increase your 1RM, but if your gym only has a couple barbells and it's primetime on a weeknight, save that shit for another time. if you're not training for an IPF meet, you don't need to do 15 sets of 3 reps on squats with 5 minute breaks in between. if you want to do that shit, find a powerlifting gym.

I fucking hate that.

Yeah. My reps and workout routines go on for hours, so I try to be considerate to other people.

Can't believe that there are still gyms without liquid chalk.

Feb 10, 2017

When you can deadlift 4-plates, you'll understand the necessity of chalk.

Feb 10, 2017

I shit four plates. Chalk is for hopscotch.

Sounds painful.

You ever shit while hopscotching?

Feb 11, 2017

I do. And I use liquid chalk to do it.

This morning I saw a guy about 25 with a barbwire tattoo, that's all I needed to know.

Funny how that sometimes goes eh? And b*tches still claim you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and yet it fits spot on so often

Feb 10, 2017

Can't stand fuckbois that think they're hard for heavy accessory lifts but can't bench/squat/deadlift for shit.

Another one (but maybe not applicable to the US due to people generally having more refined sense of smell): I hate to step in the locker room and a guy has just sprayed massive amounts of some appalling deoderant/bodyspray on himself, like Axe. Not sure, if that is worse or someone who has not taken a shower in a while, which is then amplified by some cheap synthetic fiber, which generally smells right out of the washer already.

Axe is hilarious. It is definitely one of those things in our generation. I mean the people that use it seem to think it works to smell fresh and attract chicks as the marketing suggests. And to their defense it probably does... but these chicks are trash. It's like a trash magnet. Nationwide. Guys, Axe has done it.

Damn I didn't know so many guys on WSO worked out. You go to one of the gatherings in the city, and you see a bunch of cardio bunnies coming to attend...hmm

I think- therefore I fuck

Feb 13, 2017

that's because everyone is at the gym pumping iron. Obviously no time to attend any gatherings, wtf dude?

Feb 13, 2017

It's because the pump feels like cumming as Arnold explains so well

No wonder he has illegitimate children if he was constantly cumming
