Go to any “fitness” oriented website and click on the forums. You’ll probably find threads dedicated to people ranting about people at the gym that annoy them, just like this one. I noticed two new specimens worthy of mention.
1) Share the Wealth: The Share the Wealth guy is the morbidly obese nuisance in the gym as well as the locker room. He’s the sweaty fat dude that doesn’t wipe down his equipment after using it. This is the guy that leaves a coat of sweat on the bench when he gets up. You can actually see the outlines of his rolls of fat displaced in sweat on the bench!
It’s like one of these, but with sweat!
This guy is even worse in the locker room. Take today, for instance. I usually put my water bottle and bag on the bench inside the locker room while I change, that way I don’t have to put my water bottle on the nasty floor. No longer will I do this. Share the Wealth guy was sitting naked, on the bench. A random assortment of flaps and folds drooped over the bench in a weird, abstract manner. It didn’t even look human. It was like a fleshy Jackson Pollock. My bewilderment gave way to disgust, as I discovered dude’s dripping, derriere was directly covering where I put my water bottle! I will be taking my chances with the ground from now on.
2) Curls in the Squat Rack: This pitiful emasculated runt probably doesn’t know any better. In fact, you may be this runt so pay attention. The squat rack is for squatting. Squats are hard. They suck. Yet, they are mandatory if you want to get strong. Squats also require an apparatus capable of supporting several hundred pounds safely. God gave us the squat rack for this purpose. Why then, do I inevitably catch posers doing curls of all things in the squat rack?
Do you need to feel safe encompassed in the steel cage? Is the 45 lbs. you are curling too much to lower all the way to the ground, so you rack it in the squat rack? Why?! Look, stick to posing in the mirror while you work your gunzz. Leave my squat rack alone. 🙂
