what the fuck is this?

hand maintenance becomes important for olympic lifters because there's higher chance of shit getting torn during heavy cleans or snatches compared to a deadlift.
you get a callous file and grind it off completely. then you lotion up your hands.

the worst thing you can do for your callous is to cut it with a nail clipper.

because callouses mean they get ripped during heavy lifts which will get you some kind of infection from the disgusting gym equipment and prevent you from lifting your normal sets not because of the pain but because it'll only rip again if you lift before it heals. Do you even lift?

People that ask to work in when you're doing something with a bar on the floor like rows or deadlifts. For one, the gym has plenty of bars that you can use yourself. It's not like the bench or squat rack where there's only one and people have to take turns. Secondly, it's a goddamn pain in the ass to swap out plates when the bar is on the floor. Fuck off and get your own bar.

>>
>>29207332
honestly the ONLY thing that bugs me at the gym are people who use squat racks for other things than squats

90 % of the time there are regular bars available to use for bench, curls or OHP so there is no reason what so ever to occupy the only squat rack

>The attitude that some of them get when i ask them if they are using, or if i can work in or etc etc

Story time.

Walk into gym, it is fucking leg day here we go mates i am gonna crush some squats today alright i am pumped. Warm up quads lightly on leg extension, walk over to rack.
>3 black guys doing seated bicep curls in the only squat rack using the safety bars to put weight down on bottom of curl.
I just think to myself ok if i stand here maybe they will get the picture and realize that is not really what that is for. They do not move. I grab a spare bar and just set it on outside of the rack and start squatting. They are mean mugging and laughing at each other and just in general being chodes. I disregard and continue my workout.

>The greatest ever story in my opinion

Sitting there doing something with 40lb dumbbells, i don't remember what the weight was except it was the top tier of dumbbell weight rack at the highest weight the top tier held. An older black guy goes and picks up like a 50 or something, whatever the first weight is on the lower tier of dumbbell rack.
>He only got one
He proceeds to walk back over to where the incline seat is, and do concentrated one armed preacher curls. I am not paying any attention to him whatsoever. Just doing my reps. He finishes his set

>cont

yeah no thanks i dont feel like cleaning 175lb for each set of ohp you dyel fag
>>
>Niggers

>>
>>29208616
After he finishes his set he doesn't go walk and put the weight back where he got it, like 20 feet away. Instead he decides to just set his SINGLE random missmatched weight in the only two available spots. The two spots that were left open when i picked up my dumbbells.
>The entire process of him placing the weight down etc i just stared at him in disbelief, he placed weight and i continued staring, after he put his weight down i walked over, dropped my dumbbells and just threw his 50lb dumbbell to the ground, all the while shaking my head and staring at him
To this day i still see him, and he is still an ignorant nigger

People who use the squat rack for anything but squats.

People using wraps or belts unless they are massive.

People who are obsessed with wiping down equipment. It's a gym, people sweat, just get on with your life. Wiping it with a towel makes no difference.

People who wear gloves.

People who wear muscle shirts who aren't massive.

>Not putting weights on the racks in the right order

Holy shit that is the worst.

>>29207332
Otherwise, I'm fairly happy. My gym has 8 power racks with benches, and then various machine weights. There's never a wait time for a rack, which is amazing. I can do pretty much an entire workout without changing racks.

>>29208278

I corrected a guy doing 105lb squats on the balls of his feet the other day. Every rep looked like he was going to lose his balance and put his head through the fucking wall.

Otherwise I don't give two shits about other people's form.
