Not Happy A gym Rant ......

Just got back from a very disapointed gym session, I couldn't get on the free weights! the same guys were there for an hour taking up all the space!!!!! Did cardio but was all ready for a serious one! And I couldn't so now in a bad mood had had to leave early!! as I have all this access energy in me and nothing to get it out of my system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!









P.S.

Re: A gym Rant ......

Men in gyms - hog the equipment way more than women and spend most of the time admiring themselves or each other. Men! - either work out or ship out!

sorry but its only a little gym and I have precious little time!!

Its a small part of the gym that really needs to be expanded out, it had around 4-5 people there and a couple more around it

I tend to be very considerate and conciencious about people who are waiting, but I did have one women about a year ago stand right in front of me staring at me at times waiting to get on, but the thing is I had just got there

Hate that, the place I was in today was great, way better than the gym in College. Has 5 squat racks, ldouble of every weight and loads of benchs and machines if you want them. More like an American gym. First time there and I think I am in love with a gym lmao.

Where the people hogging the weights unapproachable to ask them could you jump in inbetween there sets??

Re: A gym Rant ......

Much sympathy here. What is it with the guys who do 2 sets on a machine, and feel they have the right to sit on it denying it's use to others for 15 minutes in between?

Re: A gym Rant ......

The Gym I used to go to had loads of mirrors, ideal for perving at the women whilst working out.

Lol, my old gym had that, to use the lat machine you had to go the "cardio" section of the gym and well it was interesting to perv on the women.

I very nearly posted something similar. Mate of mine has always been a very keen gym user ... the social scene is the biggest benefit of membership, apparently!

Don't know what gyms you guys go to but I always just say "mind if I use that while your resting" or "mind if we take turns doing our sets?"

Never had a problem, and will always invite someone to take turns with me if I see them waiting to use a machine I'm using.

I've always found the free weights sections to be friendly places, even those who look like self-loving poseurs

I found the same in my old gym but the College one was a joke. GAA langers over here not having a clue and hogging weights and not knowing what they are doing on the machines or free weights too.

Re: A gym Rant ......

I always chose my gyms based on the quality of the ladies rather than equipment. So can't help you with your query, too busy sitting at the back of the butts and guts class

Obviously different to the gym I go to ... whenever I ask the girls if they need any help with their equipment I also seem to get turned down ...

Re: A gym Rant ......

I tend to just miss that machine out and go back to it.
The one time it's affected me badly enough that I needed to say anything, I was unfortunately already in a terrible mood, so there's no way I would have managed not to be sarcastic at him. So I didn't bother.

You shouldn't have to ask - if you're not using the machine, get the hell off it. It's a gym, not a freaking bus stop.

Re: A gym Rant ......

Yeah but some machines give you a great strategic view

I wouldn't let go of one easily

Re: A gym Rant ......

apparently the best perving machines are those stepper things that have a side to side motion as well, so ive been told apparently it involves lots of bending over.

it does anoy me when 3 guys hog a resistance machine or bench and spend 90% of the time admiring themselves or gas bagging get on with it, some of us are there to beast ourselves not show off to utterly uninterested women.

Latest craze here is "Power Plate"
You just stand on this big vibrating
plate.

All the girls swear by it.

I think it just shakes money out of you.
