There’s a special place in hell for people that don’t put their weights / equipment away when they’ve finished using it. I genuinely don’t understand how people think it’s ok.

I used to train at a powerlifting gym and they took plate/dumbbell management seriously : If you’re strong enough to use it, you’re strong enough to put it away. And your mother isn’t there to clean up after you.

One Saturday morning some guy left without taking the plates off the bench - the owner noticed after about 20 minutes and called the guy - told him if he didn’t come back within the hour his membership would be canceled. Seeing as how it was the only true powerlifting gym within a 50 mile radius, the guy came back. That’s my kind of gym owner!!

We also had a few pro wrestlers and an NFL player who trained there - and they also managed to put their gear away when done.

Most college athletes get this drilled into them from day one. Keeping a clean gym space becomes a necessary daily task that helps enhance overall discipline. If you don’t, usually you get rewarded with some brutal type of punishment that the entire team has to do, which cements re-racking the weights after usage.

I had been waiting for a squat rack - guy gets done and says “all yours” and starts to saunter away, leaving about 375# loaded up.

Me : Excuse me, I’m not you mother, come back and unload the bar

Him: Seriously? Unloading the bar is part of your workout......

Me: uh no. Unloading your weights after your last set is part of YOUR workout, not mine. I’ll load and unload my own weights, you take care of yours.

What does having abs on a guy mean to you? Is it a chiseled 6-pack that looks great at every angle (8-10% body fat)? Is it solid definition and maybe a 4-pack (11-14% bf)? Or is it just some mild definition that maybe looks good in the right lighting and where you have to flex (15-18% bf)? Some of you say you have abs year round and I’m trying to understand what you mean by that (and if I fall in that category)
