The Gym's Top Five Douchebags

First of all, before I spout in this post with a lot of negativity, I would like to wish to all of my iron brethren:


It's good to feel  those hard-ass and rough irons and weights in your palms again. Although, strength decreasing is normal after a long break from gym, but you dont have to worry.  You will get back up to where you were after a few of beast and hardcore training sessions.

Alright. I love gym as much as you do. The weights, music, cool gym buddies, and protein shake, they all make our gym experience much more lively(sort of). EXCEPT these people which I personally despise and most of you would probably despised as well.

Douchebags. Yep. Douchebags whose unenlightened and self-absorbed behaviors make our gym experiences a lil bit more difficult to enjoy.

How do you know if a person is a douchebag or not? You may recognize one if you have been working out long enough in the gym. Sorry guys. I just feel the need to write about this today coz from what I saw, these douchebags population is getting even bigger than ever. Here's the list of some of the gym douches whom I personally have encountered myself during my entire years of lifting weight. Watch out!

1) The Judges

This one aint nothing new. The love to laugh or make giggling expression while checking out on other gym newbies.  "Look at that pussy, liftin 10kgs dumbbells". Okay I exaggerated a bit , but all in all, these douchebags love to have a good time by making fun of other gym newbies.

2) The Social Network Junkies
Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace Friendster n all that shit. You just name it. These people cant seem to be separated from their savvy smartphone even for one bit. They lift for a while, and then start checking on their phone again. Most of gyms have no-phone-while-working-out policy, so it's kinda rude to use your phone while working out as you will take more time than you're suppose to. Someone might has been waiting for you to get off and was reluctant to speak up. So do us all a favour and leave your phone in the gym bag.

3)The Chatter
I can guarantee you, in two hours period of them being in a gym, almost half of it will be used for chit chatting. Gym is NOT a place for socializing. It's a sacred place for all God's servants to train their body and become strong. Chatting a lil bit here and there among your friends is okay tho. What I meant is, please leave your war stories, love life, how your cat died and other bullshits outside of the gym.

4) The Machine Hogger
Hey man, I know how important for you to finish all your workout. But please, dont superset if you see the gym is crowded . For those of you who are wondering what the hell is "superset", it is a combination of two or more different exercises which right after you finish the first exercise, you straight jump into the second exercise without delay. Superset is optional. But it's quiet pain in the ass if you see someone is being inconsiderate enough to superset while knowing that the gym is crowded.

5) The Guys Who Do'nt Re-Rack

There is nothing quite like looking for a 20kgs dumbell or plate on a busy weekdays night and not being able to find one. Please, re-rack the weights after using it. It's an eyesore to see dumbbells and plates lying around on the floor and it makes you unsure of whether someone is using it or not. This includes those who throw down their weights angrily and scream as if the weights had killed their mother or something.
