I've been training in a small neighborhood gym. There's one guy who will use 3 to 4 pieces of equipment at the same time. I jump in one piece of equipment no one was using and he grabs me and says - no. What is the best way to deal with this kind of guy without getting violent?

LOL...getting violent. I dont recommend that ever. Especially with some newb at the gym.

I don't really have an answer for you. These people drive me nuts. I ask how many more sets they have and stand there staring making them as uncomfortable as I can. Sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't :cool:

Sounds like there is nothing you can do...

If you dominated the situation he would have let you
Have it and said nothing....

Few weeks ago....the gym i was at...
Has 2 smiths....so i walk over to them.
And one guy is on one benching....and the
Other one had weight on it....with an incline
Bench under it....so i begin to take the Weight
Off and the guy comes over and starts saying
Something....of course i cant hear him i have
My buds in...and i never looked up at him....so
Now he taps me on the arm...and does sign
Language like "hey...im supersetting".....so i looked
At him and said "no thank you"....he walks
Away....

Thats how you establish some dominance with
These douche nozzles with no gym manners.

:cool:

Dude actually wanted to use BOTH fucking smiths
To superset flat and incline.....
And wanted me to wait for him!!!!!!

Unfortunately every gym has people that are natural born assholes. I just walk away. Getting in a fight for something trivial, getting arrested, possibly getting a criminal record and/or lawsuit from the other party is not worth it.

My gym is rife with these idiots. Using multiple machines and/or benches simultaneously. Equally annoying are the people who use a separate bench to hold their drink bottle, phone, notebook, tampons, IUDs and other various items, and they get actually offended when you move it off or ask them to move it off.

Talk to him. Tell him to put himself in your shoes. Your sitting there watching him use 4 pieces of equipment. Ask him what he'd do in that situation. Im sure he wont say wait an hour till your done. Some people just dont think about what their doing and need a reality check. If he's a dick about it then walk away. Not worth the aggravation these days. 20 years ago you could use violence and nobody goes to cops or sues. Now these days forget it.

guilty

I too am often guilty of tying up more than more than one piece of equipment.
Will often go back and forth between exercises. But I train at a very brisk pace
so it is obvious if a piece or two of equipment is being used by me. And I am done
fast so if somebody is waiting and not saying anything, they do not have to wait
long.

And I don’t sit around between exercises or sit on a piece of equipment while texting,
talking on a cell phone, or just plain picking the lint of my dick which is what most
people, men, do.

If somebody wants to work in or use the equipment, I say okay, no problem, it’s
yours . . . me strip it down or load it up for you. I am very nice and pleasant. I
never complain. And only once have I had any sort of ‘altercation’ but she had
her mind made up that I was ‘monopolizing’ and nothing I was going to say or do
was going to change her mind. It was unwinnable despite my best efforts to
appease her.

I don’t think I am a dick head in the gym. I try and use stuff that is obviously not
being used and I never, ever, ask if I can ‘work in.’ It’s just not my style. I only
notice other people in the gym when either they are in my way of when they
are using something I want to use. I try and stay out of other people’s way, do
not make conversation or ask questions. I try to be invisible if that makes and
sense.

File assault charges. Haha just kidding.
Talk to the gym manager. They won't allow someone to use 4 machines at once.

I'm the same exact way. And when someone's on a piece of equipment I planned on using there is always another exercise (dumbbell, barbell, machine or cables) I can do to work that muscle.

is it a super small gym that only has one thing for each muscle?
if not, use something else. simple.
i was using some cables and this pro guy was using it, i didnt know. what'd he do?
said no problem, theres lots of other things to work his tris with. no fit, no attittude. training for the pittsburg show few years ago.
are u a pro? training for a comp? no?
then deal with it like an adult. violence? pffft. that'll work. if its the wild west.

I like that...I have done stuff similar but depending on my mood that day. The bad days, I just tell them that they WERE using the machine and now your not.
Two things I do not tolerate, sitting on a machine for 1/2 hour while they are reading and texting on their phone and the douche that takes 3 machines to superset and thinks its his now. Of course, I will let anyone work in if they are supersetting. My wife keeps reminding me that I am 50 and not 25 yo anymore

I Keep my headphones and ignore them. Usually they get the point. If not I explain they need to share like it's kindergarten. Never had it go past that

You may just need to discuss with him how things work in a gym. Holding up one piece of equipment is bad enough and anything more is just unacceptable.
If you don't want to try that maybe you should try going at a different time than he does.
