>I go to planet fitness

It's not even that there are a shit load of fat people around with a hugbox mentality. I live in fucking chinatown so nobody is really fat.

But christ on a bike the lack of gym etiquette is astounding. Are you allowed to grunt accidentally or briefly stare at yourself in the mirror? No. Lunked.

But what you can do, apparently, is hoard every single dumbbell on the rack to a single bench, use the 45lb plates stacked up on each other so that you have somewhere to sit down, take literally 40 minutes to do calf-raises on the only leg press machine and mess around on your phone for at least five minutes between sets of two on any piece of equipment during prime time.

Do they kick you out or something if you set off the alarm?
>>
>>35754810
People have 0 gym etiquette.

If I go late on a weekend when the staff has already left. Every squat rack has weight left on it. One time someone just left it with the clips still on it. I wish I could slap the fuck out of these people.

>dumping in public
>>
>>35756568
I'm not sure. Maybe if you set it off several times but it's pretty hard to tell who they're gearing the alarm to. Sometimes I think they set it off because they think it's funny because I turn around to look at the front desk and every time the whole staff is losing their shit like a bunch of drunk people at an amateur comedy show.

My gym has one big 24hour playlist and I go always at the same time so I alway hear the same songs in the same order during the same lifts.

Dunno if this is bad or not. My squat song is Blank Space by Taylor Swift so I'm quite happy.
>>
my uni gym has those 10 sided rubber plates instead of regular round iron/bumper plates.

unless i manage to keep my wrists perfectly still during a deadlift, or i get the one bar that is new enough that the weight sleeves still spin freely on the bar, i'm ALWAYS touching one of the points on the plate when I lower the bar to the floor.

This ensures that my next left will be quite a few inches in front of my original starting position, or will be a little delayed as i remove the bar from my shin bone

Where's your gym?

I wouldn't mind lifting to Dire Straits.
>>
>>35756903
Yes. Some shithole in the Netherlands.

I've also heard Deep Purple, Queen, Led Zeppelin, CCR, and once even Bloodhound Gang and Limp Bizkit, just because he can.

Let me tell you, hearing Tool while you're lightheaded from deadlifting (lol breathing) is a really weird experience.

I recently went to the gym and I saw a pull up machine but at the time I had no idea what the hell that thing was.

So I hop up onto the machine thinking it's for reverse bench dips. I sit on the pad and I immediately fall. I awkwardly readjusted myself and silently walked away to do some squats.

Just before I left I looked at it one more time and shook my head. Then some beefed up girl tells me it's a pull up machine.

Why the fuck do people need pull-up machines? It's not hard to do a pull-up

I moved recently and had to cancel my PF membership because it was too far to drive to. I was reluctant to pay the fees at a regular gym because comparatively it was expensive as shit. Now I don't think I'd go back, even if I lived right around the corner from a PF. There's never more than 10 people there when I go versus the undulating sea of whale blubber and bullshit at the PF I was used to.

I could never understand why people with halfway decent physiques would ever set foot in that place.

You're right. Its not. But it wasn't difficult for me.

Tbh all you need is a bar over your head and pull up. If you can't do it then work on your push-ups and bench-dips and come back.

Needing a machine to do it is just stupid. It takes away the persons satisfaction of being able to do them unassisted. I'd imagine that if I wanted to do at least one pull up it would be unassisted.

I can do maybe two strict form pull-ups, but can deadlift 160kg

I find them hard as fuck and also find them incredibly difficult to progress on. Nowadays I just use the lat pulldown and will continue to do so as I lose fat.
>>
>>35757505
Well, the more mass you gain the harder it will be to lift that mass.

So don't be too hard on yourself.
>>
>>35757430
You literally have no idea what you are talking about.
>>
>>35757724
Thanks. I'm currently trying to lose weight and maintain the muscle that I have.

I'm steadily progressing on lat pulldowns (adding 2 reps per each set every workout, starting at 6 then moving the weight up when I can do 3x10)

In like two months I should be doing pulldowns roughly equivalent to my bodyweight and at that point I'll move over to pullups.
>>
>>35757363
It's the closest gym to me without the ridiculous price of 24 hour or LA fitness. It makes sense to save the money because I live in Los Angeles and rent is already harsh enough.
It's also not bad considering my husband snapped his shit up and can't do much with free weights anyway.

i would bet my life you never did your "3-4" pullups correctly. strength standards for a pullup is not at all high. beginners aren't even expected to be able to do a single one.
