Last night I actually found it annoying that I opened almost 10 lockers with people's stuff with no lock. Clearly I saw people's car keys and even their fricken wallet!

I hear ya. my gym is in a nicer area so the people that go kinda reflect that. but when I pop open lockers and I see BMW and Mercedes keys just sitting there along with wallets and stuff makes me cringe. I can understand maybe a jacket and stuff buy not things like that

Don't do this at my gym.

I get pissed the fuck off when that happens. If I open the locker and there's shit in there- I'll take it all out and leave it on the counter and use the locker.

Whatever happens to your stuff is up to the universe.

In other words- get a lock. Because there are people like me who just want to watch the world burn if you cause an inconvenience

Our lockers have a 4 digit code, so if I go into a locker and someone’s stuff is in there, I lock it using a random code. It may piss them off, but the guys on the desk can come and unlock it with the master code.

Hahahaahah i had my breaking point a few years ago when I experienced what isturbo did- literally looked like an idiot opening and closing lockers (no joke like 8)and something in me snapped and I took ALL of their shit from all the lockers out- clothes, shoes, wallets, keys etc- and threw them on the counter.

Ever since then, if I open one up and there's stuff in there with no lock- I just move the shit out to the closest bench, put my stuff in/lock on- and don't give it a second thought if the stuff is stolen. easy peasy

This bothers me too. Happens too often imo, especially since the gym i go to is not in the nicest neighbourhood and has a high rate of locker thefts.

Sheesh! Had to gather myself today as this chick with a huge badonkadonk was doing ass clappers on the Smith machine...let me explain. With a flat bench she placed it underneath the Smith machine. Set the safety clips about so high and put 25lbs plates on each side. Than she lays down flat on her stomach gets her feet up under the bar than proceeds to press up which I could swear hear her ass clap as she gets to the top! Pretty amazing and distracting at the same time lol!

Unathletic looking guy w/ all the lifting gear(head band, gloves, belt, etc.) doing deadlifts with just god awful form, to the point where I want to stop him for the sake of not destroying his lower back. His heals were coming off the ground, legs barely bent, couldn't keep the bar parallel to the ground, it was just horrific.

I didn't stop him, just shook my head in disgust. My thought was with all that gear he was wearing he had to be aware of what proper form should look like. I think he was just trying to put on extra weight to avoid girls outlifting him(he was only deadlifting 185lb).

My question; should I have stopped him, or is he getting what he deserves? Most people wouldn't be susceptive to the help anyway so my thought was why should i even bother. Has there ever been a time when you have stopped someone because you were literally concerned for them hurting themselves?

Agree, that was another reason why I didn't say anything. Not trying to come off as a douche, but that dude was definitely harming himself. Guess he'll learn the hard way, when he can't bear to do pulls anymore.

The only time I have stopped people is when they are going to use broken equipment that is not tagged out. That is it. I dont bother people as I do not want to be bothered. It is still January, the individual you discuss is likely a resolution maker and will probably be out of gym mode in a few weeks, besides I agree that most people will not be receptive to unsolicited assistance.

I constantly see individuals in the gym performing an exercise in a grossly unsafe manner. I do not consider this a matter of just deserts, its not a moral thing, people could get a coach that can assist them in getting technique and experience that will allow them to push themselves within the boundaries of maintaining a safe form.

Help him. As someone with an ongoing back problem (nothing to do with the gym), once you have a back problem, it’s very difficult to get rid of. If the guy looks approachable, and you can prevent him damaging himself, then go for it.

I’ve been going to the gym for nearly 25 years, and probably still make silly mistakes, so like to hope that if someone notices I’m doing something wrong, they’d give me a pointer. If it was delivered in a non condescending way, I wouldn’t have a problem at all.

I don't understand why people don't practice lifts to get the movement down with little or no weight, then slowly increase the weight over time.

Hell, you can watch YouTube videos which provide step by step instructions on any lift.

This.

I find at the gym lots of people starting out feel embarrassed so they just try to lift as much as possible with poor form. For me, I know my limitations with my back problems, so I'd rather look silly lifting what other people would think is light weight but not have trouble moving for a week.

IF I corrected every person I saw at the gym with locked knees while swinging bars/dumbbells with their upper body, I'd never get a workout in.

I did correct 3 pups once. They seemed receptive, but I never saw them again.

ONE advantage to being old: nobody gives me shit for using the 20lb dumbbells.

I stop and say something every time. I would feel bad if they got hurt and I didn't because they obviously don't know. Whether it is just being uneducated or taking advice from a bro science friend... I feel at least saying something.

Then again, I think Iowa is a bit different than where all you jagoffs live based on the things that annoy you and what you do in response.
