I have a few pet peeves when it comes to working out in the gym. But my biggest one hands down, is when people don’t rack their weights properly. Nothing irritates me more then when someone puts the weight on the wrong rack, or worse yet, when they don’t rack their weight at all.
I mean c’mon, really! I’m not at the gym to pick up after you. I’m not at the gym to follow you around and put your weights back for you before I can use a bench. I’m at the gym to get my workout done as efficiently and quickly as possible. Because I actually care enough about my workouts to time my rests between reps and sets, I don’t have time to waste putting your weight back for you. I’m not your mother. And I’m not an employee of the gym either (who by the way, hate racking your weight for you as much as I do).
So for the love of Pete, rack your weight! If you don’t or if I catch you doing it wrong, you’re going to get a dirty look from me while I stop whatever it is I’m doing, walk over to your weights and stare you down while I rack them properly in front of you. Don’t hate me when I do. It’s the only way you’ll learn your gym etiquette. And you need to learn your gym etiquette.
For the month of October I will be updating the comic strips SIX days a week! That means you’ll have a new comic strip every Monday-Saturday! If you like the comic strips and enjoy reading them on a daily basis I would encourage you to make a donation to the website in addition to visiting the site frequently. Believe it or not, it really helps!
