Gym Squirrels

A group of people who gather all the dumbells they need for the next hour, usually atleast 5 sets of dumbells.. and hang around doing the same thing for that hour...

    Usually a polite 'are you using this dumbbell right now' helps things... if they answer 'yes' then take it and run as fast as you can.

    drop setters usually do this, they hoard 3-4 dumbbell pairs

    super setters have people 'sit on' machines so their friend can go from peck deck to bicep curl machine quickly

    Its the only thing the squat rack is used for in my gym! If it wasn't for the barbell curl the rack would just gather dust!

    omg this is probably one of the most annoying things at my gym ever.... especially when theres virtually nothing else I can do.... along with people leaving their towels on benches while going for a 30 minute break to the other side & you think someone is using it...

    I do it because I can,
    I can because I want to,
    I want to because you said I couldn't

    Well that's your fault! You need to get up a bit earlier and mark the bench with your towel first. Just like when you need that sun lounger when your on holiday in Benidorm :p

    Come to think of it, i might check my chicks knicknacks when she comes home because my sex life has went massively down hill years ago

    What a bunch of poofs. Just go up and say 'you using it?' or 'Can I work in'. Then get yer swell on. I think maybe this was a problem like 5 times in my life and then I wasn't afraid to say 'you shouldn't have a problem sharing it'. I never take the piss so I don't expect to get the piss taken out of me.

    It's on par with some silly fat wanker on a train coming back from my daughters (she was with me) for a weekend in London at mine. We get on the train and it seems packed. But I spot a seat and so there she goes and then I see some silly sod with the 'bag on the seat' - like he's piss marked his territory. Well sod that. I goes up, looks, he stays looking out of the window so I say no more but hand him his bag saying 'yours I think' and make myself right at home. He starts huffing and puffing (literally), getting all flustered and then says, almost pushing me, 'excuse me, excuse me, I need to get pass' and then disappears. So I wave at my daughter and now we can sit together. I wasn't out and out rude - as in 'oi fatty take yer ****ing bag off the ****ing seat, use the rack and let someone sit there' but the train was packed and his luggage gets a seat? Are you kidding me? Ditto 'owning' machines in the gym. If a guys not lifting when I ask I can work in - simple as.

    The lads at the other gym I use I often tease. 'Now then lads, jaw and necks are warmed up - how about biceps?' ho ho. I know being 280-290 helps and they are a good enough bunch that I can talk to them, yank their chains and so on. Ditto on getting them to work harder in the gym. On the odd occasion I've joined in for a mothers meeting but I know I can talk so try and keep it to 5-minutes if I can. It's one of the few times I'll watch the clock.

    hahahaha I guess bieng 280 - 290 might help with getting what you want Im only 240 at best

    Its too much like hard work having a mothers meeting wih most of these guys i have tried it once but they are all 100lbs wet through at best and probably struggle to pull there trousers up in the morning but they all offer advice on how i can get stronger and bigger by doing what they do, Theyre always pretty insistent and often throw in a few big words so it makes them sound like they knw what theyre talking about....F***ING equipment hogging W***ERS

    I love morning rants!
