Commercial Gym Hell


1) young punks squatting in the Curl Rack (sarcasm)

2) young punks using three tens and a five on each side, instead of a 35 on each side

3) young punks leaving their backpacks all over the gym (without any straps/chalk/etc.)

In my old age, I've watched standards just dwindle...


talk to them directly in a mature level-headed tone, make them see it your way and convince them to get their fucking act together. They just need to learn. Maybe also talk to gym staff?


I use a city gym. It is amazing (a) how cheap it is (a heck of a lot less expensive than the YMCA) and how much iron some of them have. And just a lot less general silliness going on as well.


Thanks. I'm done venting.
