Just wanted to discuss something that... disgusts me.
So I am at the gym today, doing presses in the smith. After loading up the larger plates, I put the ten pound plates each side. Sitting on the bench, I take a few moments to prepare for the incoming massacre that my delts are about to receive... and then I unrack the weight and begin. First rep in I feel there is something wrong. I get up and notice that one of the 10lb plates are gone... and this chick nearby is using it on a seated calf raise. How do I know she took it? Because while psyching myself up before the set I noticed her mulling around the smith, behind me. That, and the fact that there are no other 10lb plates nearby.
I don't understand this. Ok, I get it if I had been off walking somewhere... or if I wasn't using the machine at all. But... grabbing someone's weights off the bar, literally 2 min after I had loaded it up... and as I am obviously getting ready to do my set? What the fuck?
To top it off, as I stand there waiting for an explanation, she finishes her set and doesn't even look at me. Just sits there deliberately ignoring me. Pretends that I don't even exist.
I've heard about people using your equipment when you are off to refill your waterbottle, but I have never heard about this kind ignorance. I swear it's getting harder and harder to even get in a fucking workout nowadays. /end rant.
Has anyone here ever experienced any shit like this?
