Biggest waste of space in ur gym?

Recommended Posts

fkinell some gyms waste a lot of money on some pointless crap.the gym i go to down here is pretty good basic kind of place, but they still have a smiths machine and a legpress no one uses. they should replace them with glute/ham raise and an extra power rack imo.i had the misfortune of using a shitty college gym couple of years back (i got free access, was linking an employee), they decided to get rid of a power rack and olympic bench to make room for more machines, such as a curling machine(wtf?), sum kind of rotating ab thingy and this obscene device that was like a pec dec for ur thighs, the twatish staff maintained barbells were unsafe apparently. i digress.

gyms try and acoomodate a wide range of people, thats why i think they put all sorts of gimmicks.and you're right they waste alot of space.thats why im happy gymbox doesnt have that and i can say there isnt any waste of space, when i was at LA fitness and virgin i saw plenty of wasted space and silly machines just repeated.

smith machine is for stability. it allows you to go heavier then you would doing free.so i can always add 20-30kg extra doing squats on the smith, i use it for traps (shrugs)and chest,

I used to lol at the 'Vagina Machines' until I f*cked my back up.As a result my core muscles, hamstrings, groin and glutes were/are f*cked up. Yes, I then became one of those guys on those machines. I've had to spend ages using them to strengthen my Gluteus Medius. Was unable to use freeweights so the machines along with physio became my best friends and have helped me through rehab.I no longer lol at those machines, would have struggled without them.

Tbh you'd be better off doing Bulgarians and lunges. Smith squatting is silly IMO. It's an ego exercise. No carryover to anything.
