    rant

    finished up a good bench workout with a huge PR and moved on to upper lat work. i was shit tired and wanted to a burnout set like ive seen in this westside barbell video guys where they did one huge set hitting 30+ reps for iso work. so i found the perfect row machine in the gym attended by two 16-17 year olds. i ask to work in and he tells me he got 1 more set. he does his set and invites his buddy over to do his set too. i jump in and say, can i get a set in as they rested between sets. he acts like he doesn't hear me and continues to rest on the machine. i repeat myself and say can i get 1 set in. same response. i wanted to bash his head with a 45lb plate and choke him with a monster mini band but this kid is only like 16 and thats a serious crime that will put me out of work. so im there waiting 3 minutes for this joker to leave the machine. turns out these 90lb clowns were doing 20lb on the cable weight for slow reps when they need to be at the buffet. so i get my burnout set in at 110lb plate weight and bang out 35 like a maniac. the goddamn cable that supports the weight was getting caught in between motion because i was moving so fast. i didnt think I'd get that much but i was fucking angry and those kids gave me a test boost. after my set, i felt like chuck vogelpohl, a fucking mad man around the gym flying through the last session of my workout.


    i want to say thank you and fuck you at the same to the 2 jerks i encountered today. 24hr fitness FTL

    Kids like that piss me off. I mean, they've got all the right to be there working out and such, but being dicks like that isn't cool. Like the guy from Power Unlimited says, "if you're in the squat rack when I get there, you've got 1 minute to get out, if you don't, I'll take your shit, and throw it, don't be there next time I come in, if you are I'll throw a 45lb plate at your face." Or something to that effect rather, haha. I'll take my garage gym over 24 hour fitness any day. Too many pre-teen dicks that think I owe them something there.

    They will encounter the same shit when they grow older...time is the ultimate revenge. However, gym ettique should be taught and practiced at that age too.

    ...in a perfect world, you would have just grabbed them by their collars and thrown them out.

    i had a similar situation once. i was using the dip machine at my old gym a while ago. one guy comes up to me and asks if he can work in between my sets. i told him 'sure' since one guy working in on my downtime isnt going to effect my sets. after i said it was ok he raises his arm and signals to his buddies on the other side of the gym and 4-5 guys come walking over and take over the machine. i wanted to yell at the c**ksucker but didnt want to cause a scene, and didnt really wanna get into it with like 5 or so guys, so i just went to the dip bar.

    on the plus side, it got my ass away from the dip machine and onto the dip bar. i always had a problem with just bodyweight on dip bars, it was hard for me to even get 2 in. but for some reason that day i was able to crank them out like it was nobodies business and was able to start adding weight on the belt. plus side or not, those guys are still douchebags

    Mosy guys don't get mad at the way others act, they really get mad at themselves for not taking the appropriate action.

    You should have tapped him on he shoulder, made sure he acknowledged you and asked again. Sounds like you got annoyed because you got ignored.

    Sometimes it's hard, but just insisting on a response at least would have meant you weren't backing down and would have been the bigger man.

    Hey JC, he did acknowledge me because he turned his head toward me but i got ignored. Your right, I did get annoyed because he didn't say a word. the breaker was when he could have easily let me get a quick burnout set while he "rests" between his sets and purposely calls his buddy over to waste more time. his buddy was on the machine next to him and he wanted him (to go out of his way) to work in.
    but im over it. i saw the two punks today before my deadlift session and it got me motivated and sure enough, i hit a PR
