    The worst ettiquette is not re-racking your weights.

    I do get sick of people always wanting to pose in the mirrors at the gym. You have a mirror at home, use it and not the one at the gym. I swear there are a few guys that spend more time looking at themselves than lifting.

    As far as the video I have to agree that the guy is a douche. I didn't think he was trying to be funny, was he?

    Agree, re-racking weights is a big pet peeve of mine. Pisses me off when people don't put shit back.
    I hate having to go searching for dumbbells.

    x2!! This apparently is a thing at my gym, the fvking plates are dis-organized on every weight rack!! The dumbbells are never out of place tho....So these guys know how to put the DB's back but not the plates??? Doesnt make any sense to me.

    Yes, I think he's a douche because everything he said he really stupid, thats why I found it funny. Everything that came out of his mouth has nothing to do with gym etiquette, yet he thinks it does.

    Tell that to my wife!

    And yeah, I hate when weights are all over the place. Where I go, the people who work there are the WORST.

    I also hate when people stand the fixed weight small barbells on end. I guess nobody has ever though about what would happen when one falls and hits someone on the foot? I usually put them down when I see them. Had someone come up to me and ask why I do that. I looked at her like she was crazy and asked whether she'd like it if one fell on her foot.

    Or how about that guy who wants to tie up 3 different machines/benches at once for that SUPER set he's trying to do. Ugh...

    Mine is the dumbells. People take the dumbells out of the db area and then don't put them back.

    If they don't then maybe some probing in those areas is required to check for blockages, etc...

    I'm with you but, thankfully, I'm usually using heavy enough dbs that most people in the gym I go to don't mess with them. It's not a hardcore BB gym.

    Dumbbells are number one for me, it's a dick move to grab a pair and do a set right in front of the glass, because it prevents others from accessing them. Secondly I go to snap fitness, not all snaps have more than 2 bench presses - nothing is worse than waiting on bench and seeing someone playing on their phone, and wearing a shirt that's dry as a bone. If you're going to sit around and play on the phone, please at least have some sweat on your shirt.

    Personal conversations that seem to go on with the same people are big ones for me. You see these same people with no results standing around like its a bar talking to others for several minutes wasting time.

    Also the guy who likes to dance or head bang or lip sync can also be annoying.

    Anything that's a major distraction for me is annoying. When your at the gym you work. Anything else is just wasting time or distracting others.

    Nothing like getting to the gym early in the morning cause your day is going to be busy and you waste time putting weights where they belong. Like cleaning up after my kids drives me nuts!!

    Goes without saying, one of the worst is taking plates off your station without asking first

    I was spotting someone on the incline bench once and one of the gym employees was going around re-racking weights, and comes up to our station and moves the plates around while the guy was in the middle of the set, thankfully the weight wasn't that much otherwise he could have lost focus and got in some trouble =/

    Loud personal conversations are so annoying. Loud cell phone calls too. Seems like there are few "gyms" nowadays and a bunch of fitness centers.

    BroScience dude is the shit lol. Also, near the same topic is this apparent "uniform" i have at my gym that's stringer tank tops or the muscle shirt with the arm hole cut down to the waist with the baggiest damn sweat pants so they never have to look at the dainty baby deer calves/thighs shaking like a leaf in the wind. Are calves that hard? Yes.. Yes they are..

    What about the out of shape guy trying to explain to people how to use the equipment properly? I usually just stare at those guys and when we make eye contact I shake my head. Yesterday I was doing some lightweight laterals in between sets. This guy starts doing then next to me. I'm using the 15s and he is looking at me like I'm a ***** or something. I keep ripping the 15s he grabs the 50s and starts trying to do them. Gets them up to about his hip every rep and uses his legs and back more than his damn shoulders. I was freakin lmfao in my head. Just laughed out loud writing this crap.

    Gotta get amused by ego lifters. Had two kids lifting 27.5 lbs for hammer curls using all momentum and some weird gypsy like twist today. gave me a good laugh.
