I haven't seen anything out of the ordinary really. Saw some really atrocious quarter squats in the smith machine yesterday though.

One dude in a wheelchair has been working out a few days a week. He's been doing mostly curls but I still think it's really inspiring. Yesterday he was chatting up some girl doing DB bench lmao cheeky bastard

>>35819939
Nothing wrong with working out abs, as long as your diet is in check and you're losing weight. If you're already working out, might as well make them bigger for when you get lean enough

What do you do to strengthen your core and abb muscles? The jelq?

Old sweaty fatass carried two 40kg dumbells to the bench and didn't lift them, just sat there with the weights at his feet. Saw him using the shoulder press machine after with 10kg
>>

They're still at it. It might be because I'm in Uni but the gym is still crowded AF. The funny thing is that the NYR I see are frat bros who probably stopped working out in the beginning of fall semester.

I'm in the beginner weight training class although I'm not a beginner by normie-standards, but I consider myself one by /fit/-standards.

I did 315 for a triple because I hadn't deadlifted in a couple weeks and I kept my grip on it and didn't drop it but a group of guys were laughing a bit and said I was being really loud and it was like a giant walking.

Then the dadbod teacher got on my case saying dropping deadlifts like that (wasn't dropping) bends the bar. I said I never heard of something like that and it's dropping it on the squat rack rungs and he went "I have 20 more years of experience here than you"

I've made a terrible mistake, but I need the easy GPA booster.

>>35820189
Read the sticky, do Stronglifts or Starting Strength, and at least try to practice form at home and when you get there, rack the weights, let people work in, and ask for people to record you for a form check

they'll know you're new, but they'll at least go "hey, this guy is actually trying"

I moved before Christmas tried to keep going to my old gym but it was too far, gym/leisure centre 10 minute walk from my door.
Go for a look, given tour by ham planet, she was out of breath just walking!

Go to gym area... my god.
Retards and running machines everywhere.

Fat fuck tells me I need to pay £20 for an induction, bullshit price but it's insurance shit, even though everyone seems to be doing stupid shit

Then she tells me it's £45 a month!!! For a shit hole gym and shit pool

Now I'm in the process of building a calisthenics set up and weights area in my back garden

kek that barbell just standing there

On the other hand I almost got in a fight a week ago. I was preparing to do OHP in the cage and the fat manlet (i don't even kid) that decided to shrugs there left leaving 4 plates (10 kg) on each side and left. When I told him that he should rerack his weights when he is done he told me: "and what if I don't"

No fight took place cause the PT is my friend and he told him to rerack his weights or he will get kicked. I never saw him again though

Been trying to find a new gym and been having the same problem.

>40 a month direct debit for at least a year

I don't know where I'll be month to month so fuck that. They always have some bullshit like if you quit in the first month or something it's free but if you forget then you're paying out the ass till they get bored of it. Why can't you just pay cash anywhere?!

You can use all the pure gyms (outside of London) for £25 a month no contract but they're shit and poorly maintained but they'll do, that's what I used when I worked across the UK if you live in London take lube because everyone tries to get you to pay upwards of £6 a session!!

Most gyms make a large part of their money from people who have long term contracts but dont go.
Its literally their business model to have people pay for nothing by tricking them to make 1-2 year subscriptions before they even start working out

The strangest thing, it was maybe 1 or 2am. I usually lift super late/really early, and I'd never seen anything like it. That was a couple weeks ago, haven't seen ball crushers since.

There's one bench in my shit apt gym.

Everytime I go there's a stupid bitch hogging it for like an hour.

Yesterday, I rolled in on one using it as a step stool for 10x1 negative pull ups.

Most just shrug with 5lb weights and dance around it like its some kind of shrine.

will they leave soon? please god i hope they leave soon.

not much stupid stuff, just a lot of girls wasting time by loading 2.5kg on the bar and struggling to squat, like they have elastic bands for quads...get out of my FUCKING SQUAT RACK

I see all these jackassas doing retarded shit like barbell-behind-ass shrugs and deadlifts constantly, and it's always in one of the smith machines. It's gotten to a point where I don't even bat an eye about it anymore. Doing fucking everything in the Smith machine is the norm there, and I have yet to see anyone doing 3pl8 or more on ANY lift.

i live practically in the same building as the gym only have to leave the building to enter the gym from antoher door so usually only wear a jacket if that and shoes

>women doing leg press by lying down underneath the barbel on the smith machine
>same women then does alternating single leg presses on the pull-up/dip assist machine
>group who get high outside then go in and workout
>group of 4 come in, only 2 of them workout, other 2 just sit on the machines joking around
>seen people work out in dress shirts, trousers, shoes, jeans, safety trousers and steel toe cap safety boots
>back parallel to floor pulldowns on the lat pulldown machine
>sit ups on the lat pulldown machine when we have plenty of incline benches
>guy running on the treadmill barefoot
>weightlifting belt when deadlifting 60kg
>benching without putting the barbell clips so when the guy was benching unevenly, the plates fell off on one side and his spotter nowhere in sight
>one guy sleeping with no shoes on, thought he was homeless at first but then saw he was just charging his phone as I walked past
>a thousand dumbbells dropped on a thousand waterbottles/protein shakers over the weeks. Saw plenty of explosions

We have one fucking squat rack and no power rack. You can fucking shrug ANYWHERE you can place a barbell. Why is the squat rack the light house that guides retards safely to its shores? I can half understand if your doing 3 pl8 and above shrugs and you use the pins but come the fuck on. 135lbs can be picked up off the ground by the average fat american girl.

Nothing in particular, just more people getting in the way. It's like the second people enter a gym they lose all sense of spatial awareness.

Is shrugging at the squat rack really that big of a deal? I usually do 225 for 4 sets and the fourth set is a drop set. Makes it way easier to take off the weight when you arent worried about shit tipping over.

Nah not really, it's more about being conscious of the people around you and not being a faggot. We have one squat rack and no power rack. Do your shit and get out or come during a time when there is nobody in there. Instead like 5 people were waiting on this faggot to actually do their squats while he did situps and pretended he was Liu Kang in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. For example, I like to deadlift in our squat rack because below the pins is a basically a bumper that makes loading the bar up easy. I don't do my shit in there when the gym is full. I go to an empty space and use a barbell. Same way I don't use the dumbbells infront of the dumbbell rack.

Sometimes I see every bar racked with the wonkiest weights like 4 5kg plates and shit like that plus plates just all over the place and some guys actually move benches around the gym from room to room and take them with them and I saw a bench in the cardio area just sitting there and I was wondering what the story behind that bench was.

At first I tried to reorder weights when people clearly put fucking 1,25 kg plates where 20 kg plates are supossed to go but then I gave up but now PTs patrol the gym and rerack weights, they do a shitty job but I can't blame them because they probably have to do it 10 times in an hour.

The weirdest thing I saw was one guy seeing another guy move from the squat rack obviously to take a piss or something and with the intention to come back to lift and he runs to the rack and puts the bar on the safety bars and starts putting on like 3 plates and just does some shrugs for 10 reps with horrible motion and then leaves.
Also one guy putting a bench in front of the squat rack to put all his shit there and starting to do tilted pullups with his heels on the floor and foam on the bar. He then took some dumbells and started doing incline benchpresses with the dumbells and his legs in the air god bless his soul.

I taught some youngins how to squat a few days ago. They were trying to learn because they realized they could bench more than they could squat and thought it was kind of pathetic.

Not really a good story here, just surprising how little people know about lifting. But it's cool, they're looking to improve and are willing to take the advice to learn, that's what matters.

Crossfit as a whole wasn't too bad when it started. The main issue people had were that they were doing olympic lifts for time. Compound exercises like this are usually done for fairly low reps and at higher weight because it's a coordinated movement that has many physiological points of failure (i.e. nerve and muscles sharting out at multiple joints). The fact most crossfit gyms push their clients into doing more weight than they should and sacrificing proper form is a oneway ticket to fucking your shit up. That's why it started getting shit on by /fit/, but it continues because crossfit comes up with these really asinine and useless workouts on a consistent basis.

I'll admit I'm pretty new to the gym, but I saw a guy using the seated chest fly machine with this chest facing the backrest and using it backwards. Actually I have seen 2 people do this, so I'm starting to think it's a legit exercise. Is it? Maybe people are trying to do some back work on that thing, I dont know.
>>
>>35820163
Had a similar thing, fat guy who thinks himself a powerlifter told me that doing Pendlay Rows were going to 'shatter' the bar because I wasn't letting it down slow enough.

Yeah, like a 20kg steel is going to 'shatter' when it touches the floor.

I was so bemused that I simply responded 'alright then' and carried on. He still comes to the same gym and evils me out every time.

Kek. Reminds me of a story I saw on here a few years ago. Something like:

>Gym has one shredded guy who's really friendly
>become friends with him over time
>NY rolls around, tons of new guys DYELs
>Tells me "Watch this"
>Grabs EZ-curl bar, loads 45s on each side
>Hops on treadmill and runs holding bar overhead
>DYELs all watch
>For the next few weeks people imitating him

I butchered it, but the basic gist is the same.
>>
The thing that is absolutely maddening for me...curling in the squat rack...with dumb bells. Every. Damn. Day. Someone is doing this. It really should only tick me off when I want to squat...but it hacks me off every time I see it.

Also saw some middle aged dude take a 10lb dumb bell, hold it like a baseball, and proceed to "pitch" it as fast as he would a baseball (obviously didn't let go) for about 15 minutes. I give it one week before he either accidentally lets it go, hits someone who is unknowingly walking by, or tears his rotator cuff.
>>
Honestly I'm just hoping I'm not a story here. I am a nyr, but I usually just have to hunt down the barbell clips. They're usually by the showers of the elipticals.
>>
>>35825272
I think two of the best ways to NOT be a story are: 1) Proper gym etiquette 2) Normal exercises with weight you can manage. I have respect for the skinny guy benching 95 pounds but doing it right and the fat guy plodding away on the tried and true treadmill busting his rear.

Inverted rows, pretty good exercise, most have had pretty shitty range of motion doing them on the bench though
>>
>>35825672
why would you put weight on the bar tho when doing them, sounds kinda pointless

Unless you superset it and alternate inverted rows and bench press, whihc would be fucking retarded tho
>>
>>35825879

Because if you don't have at least some weight on the bar, it gets moved around way too easy and can jump out of the hooks.
>>
>>35825879
To make sure it doesn't clang around where the bar is sitting and especially doesn't bounce out and you fall down
>>
>>35825902
>>35825906
Yeah I see, kinda thought about my rack where the hooks are high enough that the bar cant just "fall out" no matter what I do. Tho I guess clanging noises in a gym would pose a nuisance.

The same dude also did a few other things. I actually posted a thread about it afterward because I was confused and learned about an exercise called the barbell landmine which I had never heard of, though from what I looked up he was doing it improperly.

>put wooden stick on his lats in high bar squat position
>I assume he's oly guy and that he's using this for mobility
>I go to university gym and we have 2 platforms with eleiko plates but he was doing this in power rack
>looks like he's about to do bw squats with the broomstick thing
>he leans forward and begins spinning his torso left/right really fast
>looks like a fucking human fan

then he also
>held a dumbbell with both hands while doing frog jumps in the power rack
>performed the barbell landmine

For those who don't know, the barbell landmine is an ab/core exercise in which you stabilize and rotate the loaded barbell from your left to your right. All the videos I saw online showed people doing with their legs completely stabilized and unmoving.
>this guy has the barbell in the same position as when he did the running thing
>he begins rotating it in a circle like he's making a god damn witches brew
>gyrating his hips in the opposite direction for leverage
>literally looks like he's rehearsing a dance in the power rack

He actually looked pretty in shape. He was dressed like a sports dad down to the glasses in the pic
