OH MY GOSH #4!! One time I was unloading a barbell from some jerk who left it all and there was like 135 each side... the bar and weight went FLYING. It was so embarrassing.

Woah, Tip number 4 is something I didn't know. I am only squatting 80 lbs right now so it hasn't happened but good to know for the future.

I thought fitness influencers wear those anti squats proof leggings on purpose to show us bubbly butt and what’s under it , that’s really a precious and rare advice 🥺

Went to the gym with a work buddy the other day and I was always putting on the clips to keep the weight in place and she went "You're all about safety aren't you?" Well duh I don't wanna risk leaning one way and causing a giant accident

I one time was doing some leg exercises with a resistance band and there were these guys near me that were kicking and playing with a large yoga ball. SO one of them kicked it so hard it bounced to the wall, equipment and than me. But it it me so hard I literally flew through the gym since the resistance band I was working with had tension on it. (I almost hit my head on a metal pole) and my boyfriend and the gym host were furious but mostpeople (including me) couldn't help but laugh.

I don't really recommend to use clips because if it's too heavy or you don't have anymore strength to lift, and nobody is here to help, you can just drop the weights to save yourself from dying under the weights lol

For #5, you can also just hold down the weight stack while you adjust your weight.... way easier and less time consuming. Easy habit to get used to :)

Has anyone gotten embarrassed when you have to re-rack or take off the weights because they're to dang heavy and because stupid gym members don't know how to put the weights back?! Or or has anyone trip over a weight because it's in the walk way? Like bro, move your shit out of my space.

First, don't intentionally drop weights in the gym, it's rude. Makes a lot of sounds. You should not need earplug in the gym. And the eccentric part is usually the most important one.

PSA: do not use clips when doing bench press!! If the weight is too heavy, you won't be able to slide the weights off and it's very dangerous.
