You’d be surprised.
The few I know treat their gym(s) with the same respect as their club room(s) and in turn expect everyone to do the same.
This. It has an underlying feeling like this.

That's why it's rare that anyone acts out of line. If the **** i saw at the cookie cutter gym happened, heads would roll

Squats I understand, particularly if you don’t have big rear delts and squat low bar.
Deads make no sense lol.
I read somewhere (possibly total BS) that wrapping your wrists very tightly whilst your hands are in a gripped position improves your grip strength by holding some forearm muscles in place

My grip strength is terrible.

I might give this a go. After doing deadlifts, i can barely do upright rows because the bar just falls out of my hands.

Stupid grip

I can see where someone would get that idea from but it’s fair to say I’m skeptical haha

Jesus ******* christ i came here to whine about this.

I came into the gym at 4:30 today. It was a ******* mess. **** not racked, weights ******* everywhere.

I did about 60 mins of squats on my own and in that time, tidied the entire rack section back into order between sets. Farmers carries as you will.

Then at the end of my session, a few tarts and manlets start wandering in and what do you know? it took ******* 10 mins for the 5kgs to be in the 15kg section and **** dumped on the floor.

I treat the place like its my own place. I am going to tell campaigners to ******* put **** in the right spot next time. if you can pull the 5kg plates down from above, you can sure as **** put it back up.

This is why i need a strict bikie gym with fear and structure, **** south pacific

Goodlife (inner city) to me is representative of what will happen when society collapses. No order or rules and no-one to enforce them. Every man for themselves.

That is ******* ridiculous. No doubt a man bun wearing campaigner did that ****.

At least our dumbbells are never usually like this. They are all out of order, but at least they are on the racks

There was a new couple at the gym tonight. Never seen them, but it was quite interesting to watch them go to a machine, use it for about 10 seconds and then get up and go to another machine. Again, 10 seconds there and off to another machine.

Started on the leg extensions, then its off to the lat pulldown, then off to the shoulder press and then to the ab machine. This happened for about 30 mins.

Nice circuit work!

Actually if I expand that shot you can see some bright **** has put 3kg dumbells on the ground NEXT to the rack.

wow what a mess.

I like how the big campaigners put the 50kg dumbbells up top on the 10kg section, and anarchy starts. IF YOU CAN LIFT IT, PUT IT ******* BACK IN THE CORRECT SPOT
