>come back and see old short guy have taken 10 lbs of the left side off my barbell.
I ask him why he did that and he just said he thought I finished. In the end he benched 110 lbs.

Why are there people like this at the gym? I'm usually a calm dude but shit like this makes me angry as hell, why did he not ask me if I finished or not?? What would have you done or said and do you have any stupid annoying idiots at your gym? I wanna hear some stories

I only ever mentioned it to a PT in passing because not one person could handle that guy.

>>46410043
I would have asked what his deal is and why he didn't just ask to work in. If you had any of your stuff like your gym bag, then double fuck these people. I see people leave their stuff at the rack and go to take a piss, and people jump all over the rack. For what purpose?

Sometimes all you need is an awkward silence, size him up, roll your eyes, and walk away. This also destroys a woman's confidence if you actually mire her.
>>
>>46410043
When you leave the bar you forfeit the use of it. Unless you properly indicate you still intended to use it. Like leaving a towel on the bar. Quit being an assmad faggot op.
>>
Leaving the shit you're using in a commercial gym is like leaving a bag of money on the street, even if you leave your gear next to it, if nobody is there, expect to lose it.

You gotta realise people are heading into the gym all the time and are coming into there seeing all the shit they want taken up, so as soon as they see nobody there they'll rush in and take over.

Might want to invest in a home-gym if this pisses you off enough.
>>
>>46410114
this is basically all i got from this post.

OP wanted to brag about e stats and gym rage not knowing his own gym etiquette about a story that probably never happened.

of course the guy would only bench 110 lbs in this story.
>>
>>46410043
I'd just say I still have a couple sets left and put the weight back on
>>
>>46410114
I was gone for less than two minutes go to piss and straight back, I had clips on the bar and my phone and shit was there as well. So no I had indicated it , i'm not mad for no reason.
>>
>>46410155
It doesn't matter how long you're gone.

I've literally been resting inbetween sets like 2 meters from the power rack, and some dudes just rush into it.

Meanwhile I'm 2 meters away on a bench resting, yes I had to get up and tell them, and they said they didn't notice and they waited for me to finish.

You gotta realise people are there and equipment is in short supply at busy times, so people will be quick to rush into grab something if they see nobody sitting on it.
>>
>>46410155
You are mad for no reason. You're mad at some old guy taking off a tiny amount of weight while you were gone. I watch people leave their shit everywhere and have watched a guy leave 6pl8 on the bar from his quartersquats. Stop being a cunt about someone making poor assumptions at a shitty commercial gym

Some dumb thot leaves uneven number of light plates on the two of gym's plate stands. I'm yet to figure out which one, maybe someone who exercises earlier then I usually do but sometimes it happens during my workout. This shit is driving me crazy, I don't even have any OCDs but this is too much.

Goddamn I hate all of them, it's not even a gym employee, just some guy who isn't that big who sits there and tells them what to do. And it's usually shit like using ladders for footwork, kettlebell shit, and jump rope, then they throw in squats

Fuck off, I can see being upset that she wasn't there for 5 minutes, and I can understand being upset about people who do use too much equipment, do meme shit, or lift with godawful form, but being upset about people training properly with any amount of weight is retarded.

t. lifts more than you

>>46410192
ye your right bro, thx for the advice
>>
>>46410671
It normally never bothers me, I've seen dudes benching the bar and I think nothing of it, I was there once. It's just if you are at that light of a weight for a squat there are countless other exercises you can do to build strength and other things you can use. It's that fact coupled with how she was just leaving it there that pissed me off. If she was just squatting the weight I wouldn't have even noticed, but it's the two factors put together that made me upset.

If there's not that many people in the gym I'll take up like three squat racks so I don't have to keep switching my plates. Not sure if this pisses people off or not, whenever they ask I'll gladly give up all but one but nobody seems to ask

>>
(Can't green text since phonefag). Decide to ask a pajeet near me for a spot on my bench since I'm on my last set of 5 * 5. Almost don't ask, but end up asking. Specifically tell him I'm going for five reps, then specifically tell him only to help me if I say I need help. Start benching and he immediately shoves his hands right in my face before I've even completed my first rep. Tell him "I'm good" still refuses to move his hands out of my face and continues to act like he's gonna grab it. Takes my mental energy from the lift trying to get him to stop and distracts me so I decide not even to go for the last rep. Should have not even bothered asking.

In an ideal world. But we live in a world where DYELs do not strip the bar to show their awesome 1.5pl8 squat
I've never seen an unattended loaded 2pl8 and above. It seems like only DYELs leave plates on the bar

I bring masking tape and a marker and write my name on all the plates, benches, and bars before I start working out. To avoid ambiguity I also have written my name across the front of my t-shirt. With every rep I yell my own name instead of just tsss-ing, and for extra emphasis I point at the bar and say, "I'll see you in a minute, babe" every time I need to walk away for a minute. People stare whenever I lift, but I feel like proactively asserting one's rights and avoiding ambiguity is key to avoiding conflict and getting a great work out in uninterrupted.

Same. In Starting Strength workout B days I have to use the rack for at least 1 hour because of squat and OHP (with all the warm-up sets and 6-10 minutes of rest between sets it gets long)
It's very stressing when people come ask to use it so they can do their half-squats with shit form, pussy pad and light as fuck weight
>>
>>46413930
this is so wrong I can't even believe you typed it lol why do you cope
>>
>>46414615
you don't know how bad it really is

>first 24h i go to: the squat rack has unmovable safeties that are too high for me to hit depth. the cage is in a corner and THE FUCKING FLOOR IS TILTED ABOUT 1-2 DEGREES SIDEWAYS. i use the squat rack outside of the safeties and progress slowly

>2nd 24h: it's upstairs above a fashion store so i can't diddly, stiff leg diddly, etc. still 1 squat rack (low safeties) and 1 cage

>3rd 24h: a good one in a nice area. has rows of racks (6 spots), a cage, and another rack.

>4th 24h (the one in the pic): shithole. the squat rack has the high immovable safeties and GUESS WHAT? THE CAGE IS IN A CORNER THAT IS TILTED 2-3 DEGREES TO THE SIDE AGAIN. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

yes, 24h fitness typically only has one shitty rack and one shitty cage in a corner with a tilted floor. fuck i hate it so much but they're all around my city and i can hit the gym to work out and shower when i'm on a long road trip if there's a 24h along the way

>>46414671

Ya today at the gym I saw a skinnyfat dyel doing a bodyweight routine at the gym. He kept doing handstands against the wall and his shirt would go up over his face and expose his disgusting body for everyone to see. I wanted to ram a barbell into his sternum while he was doing that, like some kind of modern day bro-jouster
>>
>>46414657
If there's only one rack you should probably find another way to OHP, it's pretty inconsiderate to OHP in the squat rack if someone else wants to use it. Of course if no one is waiting then go for your life.

Yes. It's up to 10 minutes and even more if you need. I read it on the starting strength forum rippetoe and others said it themselves. It's the amount of time the ATP lasts to recover or something.
>Clean the weight for fuck sake
>>46414948
it's annoying to load plates when the barbell is on the ground. You also spend energy on doing that clean, and cleaning for all the warm up sets apart from the real sets would be too much effort. OHP is supposed to be done in the power rack.

The point is to not have an autism attack over shit like that that doesn't matter. If the guy wasn't there, I'd just use that bench. Since he was and there were other ones available, I pulled up a different one. You're missing the point.
>>
>>46415110
What if there are no other benches available? What would you do?
>>
>>46415080
Yeah the rack is better, but you're a dick for hogging the one squat rack because you don't want to clean 40kg

I was resting during bench the other day and a middle aged yoga-woman walked up to me and asked me where the clips for the other bench were. I told her I don't know, and she said, "Can I use yours then? You're clearly not working out anyway." Eventually she found the clips on the floor, and proceeded to do leg raises on the bench with barbell in hand and 10lb on each side.
>>
>>46415135
Then I'd do one of my other exercises because my routines are flexible enough to deal with that. In that case instead of doing flies like I did after coming back, I would have done tricep extensions, front raises, or some other accessory. If they still weren't done, I'd do standing flies instead - not my favorite way to do them, but better than nothing and definitely better than getting in a hissy fit over someone using a bench that's not yours to begin with.

Guys who squat over 500 for reps take 10+ min rests

Seriously though, track the rest periods any Olympic lifters or powerlifters.

Refer to: https://www.bodybuilding.com/content/what-is-the-optimal-time-between-sets-for-muscle-growth.html

Prilepin's chart

Literally google "strength training rest time between sets"

From my own experience, I'm resting anywhere 3 mins to 6 mins. Since I started doing this instead of rushing through my workout, I consistently move up 5-10 pounds every week on all my big lifts. That being said though, the intensity is extremely high.

I go to Anytime, with the exception of one super fucking tiny one all the one's I've visited have 2-3 squat racks, most have a deadlift rack too (don't know the proper name but it's got extra space in front with a wood floor in the middle and thicker floor padding on the sides so the weights don't bounce when you drop them).

They've all got heaps of free weights, cable machines etc.
Only downside is they're all fucking packed full from 4pm to 8pm, but outside of that they're empty.

What's up with those puny looking weights and bar? Is that the manlet bar? Do you go to a children gym?
>>
>>46410155
dude, fuck other anons, you are right. If towel, phone or whatever, i assume someone is using it. Unless guy is gone 10/15+ mins

>>46410436
I rest 10 minutes, because I can.

Similar thing happened to me but I had only been on the rack for like 8 minutes, just warmed up and about to do my working set. Had my belt under the bar, wraps on the bar and bag on the side of the rack. I goddamn set camp on that bitch Fucking polo pajeet takes 2 plates off one side of my bar. and uses it to neck press 135 lmao. Gym was practically empty. What the heck, man. Not cool.
>>
>>46411786
These two retards at my gym would take the only bench for up to an hour and would only do heavy weight quarter rom meme lifts.
>>
>>46410599
This one time a girl asked me if I was done with the rack, I was so I told her it was ok. I went to do something else and I see her load 1 pl8 and then she immediately fucks off to do shit with dumbbells, I was there another hour and that cunt didn't even touched the bar.

I also do 9 sets of rows, I do this so I can mogg normal people like you.

>>46414206
I can do pulls with 2pl8 attached, chins with 2.5pl8. For sets of 5+. Pulldowns are objectively better isolation.

Why am I even arguing with you, you are probably some natty doing meme low volume "compounds". You are not a beta male, you are the filler male, the average.

I find it funny how autistic /fit/ is, most of the problems I've encountered at the gym got solved simply by talking to the guy, conversation usually goes like this:

I know I'm not totally clear on this one but she's under 1,50m (5 feet in freedom units). I'm not the tallest guy myself but she had to realize how much she was inconveniencing me with her request. I've caught her several times before and after pulling similar stunts. she almost never puts the weights back. the gym staff don't like very much. no one likes her very much. i have more stories of her if anybody wants.
