A while ago, I mentioned here about the idiots at my gym who insist on sitting in their damn cars with their headlights on blinding many of us in the gym. Last night I had a fool that did this and it was the worst out of all the numb nuts. I'm benching and the fool runs his car with his headlights on for a good 10 minutes. The headlights are aimed straight at the bench I'm using and are blinding me as I'm trying to knock off my sets.

I might have to stop being passive about this and walk over to the window and give the offenders the finger.

Why doesn't your gym buy those curtains that roll down to block out the sun? One of my gyms is on a high rise and they have those and when the sun hits directly- it is literally blinding.

Would work for your situation, cause ya know/ the sun > headlights.

Not sure. They're probably being cheap. The windows are very tall. I would say they're about 15 feet tall and start near the ground and go up. The wall where these windows are is about 50 feet in length maybe a bit more.

My new gym is relatively small. Theres this one guy who jumps rope in between sets of his entire workout..... So damn annoying, and he does it in a spot where everyone struggles to get around him. Fucking rude in my opinion, at least do it somewhere that you're out of the way.

Other day at the gym. Thought I've seen everything. Very thin build dude is doing bench presses but finds it necessary to use chalk for 135lbs. And that's as much weight he ends up using.

A major annoyance are a couple of individuals (mainly this one upper middle aged woman) who feel they own the entire gym. The worst offender is this aforementioned woman. I've witnessed her on a number of occasions hog up 3 different workout stations/equipment at the same time. And taking her time using each one. So in essence this one person prevents the use of said equipment for almost an hour.

Middle-older aged guys who are mad about their age and try to lift way more weight than they are capable of and use horrific form and technique while grunting LOUDLY with each rep.

It's the amount of momentum and 'body english' that they use that drives me nuts. Using every muscle except the group that is supposed to be focused.

I guess at least they aren't doing their 'curls' in the squat rack...

Things that annoy me at the gym? The whole fucking place and every rude, sweaty, stinky son of a bitch in it. The incredible racket made by a bunch of vain people trying to look tough but merely looking foolish. Which is why I cut and split firewood, shovel snow, do my own carpentry and landscaping and yard work, do calisthenics, ride bike 50-70 miles a week and walk 15 miles most weeks. I look like I work out, but I just work.

Real world problems. My legs grow easier than anything else. I have to train them less so my upper body keeps up.

Just keep hitting it man. You may have to try a few different combos before you find something that works best.....and the way out bodies work....it will only work for 6 weeks or so and you have to switch up again to keep progress going.
