Gym Squatters: How to Deal with them

Alright guys, we've all been there. You're ready to crush your workout, but some dude's glued to his phone on the bench press like it's his living room couch. It's enough to make your blood boil, right?
Here's my two cents on handling these gym squatters:
First, assess the situation. Is the guy actually resting between sets, or is he just scrolling through Instagram? If it's the latter, it's time to take action.
Politely approach him and ask, "Hey man, are you using this?" Nine times out of ten, they'll realize they've been hogging the equipment and move on.
If they give you attitude or claim they're still using it, don't get into a confrontation. Find a gym employee and let them handle it. They're usually happy to enforce the gym's rules.
Another strategy is to work in with them. Ask, "Mind if I work in with you?" Most people are willing to share, especially if you're polite.
Now, here's the thing: If this is a recurring problem, it might be time to switch gyms. Some gyms have a more serious culture, while others attract a more casual crowd. Find a place where people respect the unspoken rules of gym etiquette.
We're all there for the same reason: to get a good workout. Let's show each other some respect and share the equipment. And if someone's hogging the machine for their social media fix, don't be afraid to politely speak up.
 
Last time I asked if I could work in with someone on leg press (because his program hade 6 min rest between sets) he looked at me like I asked to fuck his wife.
"Working in" use to he a thing and often wanted by the less experienced crowd but now everyone is an expert because they follow some clown on Instagram.

That's when you set down your gym bag, get a little closer than personal space rules usually allow and you stare right at him all wide eyed and say, "Ok, I'll just wait here........................." 99.9% get VERY uncomfortable, heck talking to another human face to face with no screen involved makes most of these people uncomfortable, and they will bail on the machine. Zero threats, no "roid rage" nothing worth making a toktick about, they simply leave. This approach has yet to fail me when dealing with the "no share" crowd.
 
I use what is open. I have no more right to a piece of equipment then the next paying member. I can look on it as muscle confusion if that helps me feel belter about the whole thing.
 
When I go to the gym I usually have my exercise plan set in my mind but always keep a Plan B or C when some broccoli head hogs the machine I want to use. A good thing to switch things up on demand!

I just want to get in a workout with no drama.

Exactly! 35 mins later...they are still there lol
 
If you're big enough, they will move. I usually ask to work in. They usually let me, or they tell me they have one left and knock it out really quick. I'm pretty polite about it. If they're a dick about it, I just start stacking plates.
 
I just do something else. If it bothers someone that much then I'd suggest building your own gym at home.
I don’t think asking someone to work in means you need to turn into a recluse.

The other day some young guns asked me how many I had left a their faces lit up when I said “wanna work in?” Just like the old days.
