But do you ever "Reverse Chi"?

Anyone else have a guy who comes in and does 1/4 reps with as much weight as he can bounce up and down six or seven times?
What about the asshole who clogs up the bench while he reads the paper for five minutes in between sets?
The cologne people.
Anyone who wears head and wristbands.
I don't mind people who clog the bench if they are lifting heavy. As long as they let people work in while they rest.
Cologne and hairgel people with sleeveless shirts are probably my biggest pet peeve at the gym.
Hmmm. Got a personal pet hate here. Does anyone else have a group of 3-4 guys that are ALWAYS in at peak times and just sit around one machine for about an hour, doing a set every now and again and are just generally loud and offputting? Also tend to get shitty if you ask to step in for a set. Really grips my ****
I was also in the gym the other month and there was a guy on a seated bike machine, playing his fucking PSP!!! He got that engrossed in his game he actually stopped. For about 10 mons ( I know cos I was on a crosstrainer right behind him)
Several years ago I was in my local gym when this gym N00b came in. He had forgot his shorts so walked onto gym floor in a tee and his greying Y fronts, much to everyines amusement.
I saw a girl walking on the treadmill last night with a can of coke.
Always funny seeing someone light a cigarette and opening a can of coke as they walk out of the door, on their way to the nearest Golden Arches (other fast food emporiums are available)

And I hate TV's in gyms. Fair enough in front of the cardio equipment, but everywhere? Seriously...Its as bad as having a TV on in the pub, converstaion killer and totally distracting (wandering atention is never good when lifting)
And the guys who spend their entire life in the gym, cos its the only place they have anything in common with any other member of the human race.
Although I must admit to being a grunter
the only place TVs will go in my gym is in front of the treadmills and in the lounge.
I hate the weight bangers on the universal machines, the faggots that use the head harness to tone the inside of their thighs, the military poser types that wear "special forces" and "black ops" t-shirts, and especially of all the real military guys that stand inches away from me while waiting.
And the thing about it, all this was at off hours.
