Clobber is such an innocuous term. I hope if I ever get the living crap beaten out of me no one says "Well he got clobbered" because no one will care.
 
2009-12-15 09:19:49 AM  
I only do that if you don't wipe down the machine after you're done. That always makes me stabby.

Somebody should have left their place 4 minutes sooner.

Well, I guess beating someone up is a workout.

I dunno, if you're one of those douches who sits on the bench and rests for 5 minutes between your sets, you deserve a hammerin'.

Who I find more amusing are the people that do sets of 5 reps and then move on. They spend more time walking laps around the equipment than they do using them.

I gave up gyms long ago. They are full of dicks. I just cycle and do floor exercises at home. Easy, free and no dicks.

Except mine.

An argument between Smith, a bodybuilding buff standing more than 6 feet tall, and a younger, scrawnier club member preceded the fatal attack, witnesses said.

If dude thinks he had a hard time getting his turn on the eliptical machine was bad, wait until the "hard times" he is going to have when his less scrawny cell mates take turns on him.

Nothing worse than the guys who go to the gym in a group of 5 large and stand around gabbing 90% of the time, then the 10% of the time they actually do anything they scream and slam weights on the ground

I can't stand the cocky pricks at the gym. Theres a handful of roid heads in there, and they always act like they own the place. blocking the dumbell rack and not moving, setting their stuff on a bench and hogging equipment without being polite.

Theres something about people who are so obsessed that they obviously go to the tanning booth every day, style their hair, and take steroids that makes me absolutely intolerable of what they stand for.

i joined a gym not too long ago. thankfully everyone kind of keeps to themselves and respect each other. There are a handful of personal trainers always walking around the weight room giving tips to people, or working with specific people but they keep an eye on the floor.

exercise is supposed to make you happy, not beat people up.

The only way I would get stabbed during my workout would be if someone broke a bottle and started swinging.
