I was running late to the gym, and so didn’t have alot of time before they closed to do my workout. Theres a guy(who was pretty built, 250+) with his gf(who was smokin’ hot) or whatever doing bb rows in the squat rack. This is the first time I’ve EVER had to ask somebody to use the squat rack.
I go over and ask him how much longer he will be, and he replies about 10 minutes. Since I only have less than an hour, I didn’t really want to wait. I said I wanted to do squats and being the only rack(and its only a half rack) in the gym, he could just do rows from the floor. To this, he has a look on his face like what I just said was the most absurd thing to even suggest.
I figured he wasn’t willing to give up the rack at this point. Pointing at the Smith Machine, he suggest I use that. Now I think I had an equally stupid look on my face. Anyway, I told him I’d wait and walked away. The guy makes some comment to his partner and shakes his head like I was out of line, although I always try to come across as friendly at the gym.
Anyway, I go warm-up some, and about 3-4minutes later the rack is empty and he is over doing tricep pushdowns and looking over at the rack. I go to the rack and he has obviously purposely put the bar on the highest level, which is over my head with a 10kg plate on each side.
I can see him looking over, maybe thinking that I would drop the bar on my head being so fucking heavy, since thats what half of the 120lb guys would probably do if they attempted to unrack it. I easily unracked it and noticed the dissapointed look on his face. I was kind of annoyed, and tempted to ask him why he felt the need to do that, but I had more important things to worry about.
The sad thing is that this guy would of been about 27-28 and the fact he felt he needed to behave this way actually suprises me. Really, why people go through effort to be a douche to people they don’t even know? Its like they are trying to prove to be men but don’t realise they are doing the exact opposite.
