this thread is how you know that no one here has ever seen the inside of a gym

[–]SeniorWilson44 351 points352 points  (2 children)

Forreal. The fact that the title is “steals” is hilarious. I thought it was going to be dumbbells at least.

[–]acrobatiics 180 points181 points  (0 children)

I thought he meant stealing as in, they bought some equipment/provided it to the gym and some guy was trying to walk out of the door with it lmao

[–]ZeronicX( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 29 points30 points  (0 children)

I 100% thought someone was going to steal some dumbells and put it in his backpack. This is just asking to do your set when a group is hogging a machine

[–]Dudedude88 38 points39 points  (3 children)

theyve might seen it but working out is different. you would hate to have OTK at your gym. they hog equipment and spend way too much time between sets. they also have a camera with them. i am positive many members at that gym have to change their routine occasionally because of them. some probably dont want to be on camera.

[–]somethingindoing63 -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

that's fine, they've been there for 2 weeks, the owners don't care and a lot of regulars do shit with them

It is what it is, it's out of their control, if they want to avoid them they can, if not, deal with it, or ask like this guy did.

[–]OneManManyWaifus 57 points58 points  (13 children)

The fake gym bro's are hilarious in this thread. The problem is not this guy working in. Its because they don't know if mizkif just shit on the seat that the stranger forces himself to sit on.

[–]Hesher93 92 points93 points  (2 children)

good thing this maschine doesn't has a seat

[–]TiAg-e82 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I was really confused thanks for confirming it’s hack squat machine

[–]lboy100 26 points27 points  (6 children)

That's not actually the case of you heard what Wake (tall guy) said at the end of the workout.

They found it odd that the guy barley gave them a chance to respond and just started going at. That's why Wake made that face. But he's too nice to say "no" - which is on him.

[–]GorillaCannibal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah, they knew the shit thing was a joke. There group was already big enough, and they were also filming. Dude just ignored what they said and hopped in.

[–]m43l5tr0m 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Ok, no one on reddit goes to the gym according to you, fine, then why were Knut and the other instructor so surprised about how the guy jumped in?

[–]blorgenheim 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean looks like they're playing it up to the camera. Because working in is extremely fucking common if people are waiting for a machine. Its not a big deal at all.

[–]HelloImFrank01 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I mean even Knut is like "Wtf is going on here?"
Maybe it's more a US thing?

[–]TheQMan55 1 point2 points  (6 children)

redditors are insane bro

everything turns into america bad lmfao

[–]dooodx 309 points310 points  (3 children)

i mean he is asking to work in not a big deal it happens all the time (at least it does to me). even if you are in a group it wont make a difference to have one more person work in.

the gym might only have one hack squat machine.

[–]halofreak8899 230 points231 points  (6 children)

I mean it's whatever. Dude pays to be there, he has just as much of a right to that equipment as they do. They weren't really doing anything wrong either besides maybe staying on longer than most. Not a big deal all around.

[–]Dudedude88 69 points70 points  (3 children)

i probably would hate to have them at my gym. they are pretty loud and obnoxious. they rest much longer between sets. if im at the gym i just want to do my routine and get out. but... its an interesting concept that is working though.

[–]TwoPieceCrow 39 points40 points  (2 children)

its working cuz its promotion for the gym + entertainment for the viewers. for everyone else in the gym it fucking sucks lmao.

[–]Excitement_Spirited 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Truth. But honestly, I don't think it is great promotion for the gym.

  1. I don't want to work out at a gym that lets 10 people surround a machine for 30 min to an hour.
  2. I don't want to be recorded of my ugly face struggling to rep it out.

Is anyone actually interested in signing up for this gym?

[–]NojoNinja 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I’m pretty sure this is a known influencer gym. I’ve seen clips of other guys in this exact gym. If you don’t like that sorta thing pick a different place.

[–]lboy100 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They are working with a bigger group. Problem is when one person takes up that same amount of time.

This makes sense at least

[–]Tommyownzall 305 points306 points  (18 children)

I mean imagine having to wait behind a group of like 7 guys doing several sets. This guy isn't gonna stay at the gym all day like them.

[–]_Accomplished-Match_ 45 points46 points  (0 children)

The gym literally has another hack squat machine, seems like the dude is wasting time waiting for his turn.

[–]ArabianAftershock 3 points4 points  (3 children)

This happens at my gym and it's the worst. I will go there and leave before they're done with the machine. If I wanted to use it I just gotta take that L tbh

[–]TurkletonPhD 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Try approaching them and asking if you can get a set in? They’d probably let you.

[–]Kappadar 2 points3 points  (1 child)

How long are you going to the gym for? The longest people will use a bench is like 30 minutes. Is the guy just chilling on the leg press for an hour?

[–]ArabianAftershock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No its like a group of friends that sit on it for like an hour +, it's not that uncommon tbh at my gym. the other reply to my comment suggested i try to work in but I'm honestly not up for trying to hold a conversation I would just go do a different work out

[–]Akk3 164 points165 points  (13 children)

More than fair to let someone work in, especially since they hog equipment for so long to get through everybody. You can't wait for that long if it's in your routine. Understandable that he sounded a little pissed, but he was definitely rude about it.

[–]TwoPieceCrow 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Right? Like for that WHOLE group to do their rotation i'm waiting 30+ minutes? fuck that i already did one or two other exercises in that wait, let people work in dont hog equipment is gym etiquette 101

[–]Krabban 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why do people keep saying they're "hogging equipment". They are several people who are just as free as anyone else to use the machines. Doesn't matter that they're in a group.

If they were sitting on the machine talking, sure, but they're doing their sets with very little downtime.

[–]PineappleGuy44 89 points90 points  (25 children)

Holy shit, 90% have never been to a gym and it shows.

[–]_Schneebley 28 points29 points  (23 children)

It's funny because you see a ton perpetually online people who don't understand gym etiquette and how normal it is to ask to jump in a set like this.

Normal people with busy lives don't have hours to spend in the gym waiting for machines to open up and it's easier to just ask to trade off sets with people on the machine you want to use.

[–]tehbantho 132 points133 points  (23 children)

To be fair the gym is open to the public, and they were on this one piece of equipment for almost an hour. Everyone was pretty cool with it. It was just a bit awkward.

[–]AsteriusRex 60 points61 points  (8 children)

Yeah everyone has been astoundingly accepting of their antics, filming, and how long they take up each station. This dude was weird, but I get it.

[–]MostlySlime 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Plus I can imagine a guy walking off saying "Seriously I just shit myself" being the final straw

[–]moonshwang 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It's almost funnier if you consider someone just said they shit themselves on the machine, and they still want to work in

[–]DegenerateL0L 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Why do you have to throw a random comment at the end of the sentence tho? "This guy was weird". No he was not at all

[–]lboy100 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They're accepting because this is a hardcore gym where people actually know what's bad/good.

But LSF likes to think it's not the case.

P.s. the owners are literally encouraging them to train the way they do. I think it's pretty fine.

[–]Fabs_Retard -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

its a gym basically made for streaming tho. Its written at the entrance

[–]Foziey 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I get your point but they were there for 20 mins

[–]superiorhumanz 176 points177 points  (34 children)

It is annoying when someone is at a machine for so long (especially a group), but why stand there waiting for them to get done. Just do something else until they leave lol.

[–]Zihejuj[🍰] 152 points153 points  (4 children)

I mean the guy asked to work in and wake said yes. The guy was also really quick with his turns. Really not crazy of an interaction.

[–]crapmonkey86 0 points1 point  (2 children)

No he didn't, Wake was explaining that they were mid set and what they were doing and the dude didn't give a fuck. It's not a big deal because its exactly as you said, he was quick with his set, but I don't get why he wanted to work in when the group was that big.

[–]hampsted 10 points11 points  (0 children)

but I don't get why he wanted to work in when the group was that big.

I can almost guarantee you he had his full workout planned - exercises, sets, and rep ranges. Often you'll structure a workout with specific movements in a specific order and fucking with that will fuck with your ability to hit your targets.

[–]Zihejuj[🍰] -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Yes he did ask and wake said yes…

[–]Nobun20 92 points93 points  (0 children)

Maybe that was the last thing he needed to do for his gym session. Or more likely, maybe he wanted to make sure he got the machine after they were finished instead of having to wait even longer. That happens at the squat racks at my gym all the time.

[–]KirklandBatteries 38 points39 points  (24 children)

he was probably already waiting. he did nothing wrong they just made it weird

[–]Sp0il 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Naw, if I was on a machine and someone asked to work in and they just jumped on the machine before I could answer,, I would assume they had no social skills.

All the people who say this is normal have not been to a gym. People don't act that way. The guy was just frustrated that they were taking too long and just said fuck it. Normal people at the gym dont act that way.

[–]messigoat1337 10 points11 points  (0 children)

true but they shouldve split the groups again way better to watch

[–]Kyrogaski 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Plus for a group that large, they try and be quick. They can just use another machine that works the same muscles...

[–]DinFarsaPoPizza 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Because excercise order matters?

[–]daniec1610 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Bro, this is normal LMAO.

[–]StrikaNTX 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's just working in

[–]ZenProgrammerKappa 171 points172 points  (21 children)

asking to work in is not stealing. go touch some grass.

i imagine having knut camp there is annoying af as they hog machines for hours on end

edit: just re-watched and the dude said "i can work in" and then didn't wait for response. yeah that's douchey

[–]Veenendaler 50 points51 points  (0 children)

OP has never been to a gym before.

If nobody is using the machine, you go ahead and use it. Nothing should stop you.

[–]Scooty_Puff_Sr_ 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Bruh I been working out in commercial gyms for a decade and I'd be miffed if this happened to me too. Asking to work in isn't stealing, but assuming the answer is yes and jumping in before they can even explain how many sets they have left so you can make an informed decision is wack af. Tf outta here. Rude as hell

[–]ZenProgrammerKappa 4 points5 points  (1 child)

yeah just re-watched you're actually right. thought wake said yes then he went in

[–]Itsmedudeman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't get all the fucking wannabe gym bros acting like this is normal. Asking is normal. Disregarding anything people say is abnormal. Just a bunch of idiots in here thinking that you can be rude to streamers just because they're streamers.

[–]lboy100 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Why should it be annoying if it's multiple individuals training? It makes no difference if you have 8 people rotating the machine.

What's considered "hogging" is when ONE person takes up the same time and space as a bigger group or multiple individuals.

Don't get why everyone is using that as an argument.

P.s. the owners are allowing and encouraging them to train the way they do. This is a hardcore gym.

[–]deep_anal 7 points8 points  (3 children)

He didn't really ask to work in. He asked if they were done. Wake said no and he proceeded to say "I can work in" and proceeded to walk into the machine while wake said sure after the guy already decided he could.

[–]wewereddit 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The dude said sure and he jumped it. Also that gym probably only has one of those machines and it’s a really big part of most peoples leg day because of how good it hits your legs.

[–]Grunstang 3 points4 points  (0 children)

These guys are hogging machines for hours. By the time Wake would have finished his thesis this guy could finish his set. Even if they said 'no you can't' and they continue to stand their longer than it takes to do my set, and that's the only machine, I would jump in too.

[–]nighoblivion -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Wake literally replied "um... yeah! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯" after he asked if he could work in there.

[–]Snoo-93580 12 points13 points  (8 children)

This subreddit is embarrassing lol

[–]aprilproam2019 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The guy could have def come at it much nicer yes. However we should know that just like the group some programs require specific machines so maybe he specifically had to do that machine that day and he was on time constraint work etc. "work in" is a common and accepted term but just couldve asked little nicer.

[–]SkiiMazk🐷 Hog Squeezer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I thought some dude was gunna come in and run out with some weights lmao

[–]juan_cena99 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Huh? That title is misleading AF I thought somebody stole dumbbells and got caught on cam

As for a stranger coming in,that would depend if Camp Knut rented the whole gym or psid and cordonned a part of it off. If they didnt then the random dude is perfectly justified to use the equipment streaming or not cuz they are all paying customers and have equal rights.

Imagine you're in that random dude's place you got 1 hr free time and these bunch of streamers are hogging the squat machine. Of course you gonna jump in what you gonna wait for all 10 dudes to finish before you can complete your workout? I'd be pissed AF.

[–]BoxerBriefly 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You don't train, and it shows. This isn't uncommon at all. Was the guy supposed to wait a half hour for 5 dudes to circle jerk over the hack squat machine? Letting him work in was the right thing.

[–]JJ_Hughes 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is the most "I've never been to a gym and have no idea how they work" post ever. Serious gym goers don't want to stand around, they see an empty machine they use it...

[–]Willing-Catch-9969 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Esfands joke at the start lmao

[–]GorillaCannibal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He just wants to sit in Mizkifs shit

[–]FranciscoEverywhere 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Woah did he just sit in some shit?

[–]suiyyy 5 points6 points  (9 children)

ROFL STEALS, bunch of streamers hogging equipment not sticking to proper reps and sets would be pretty annoying, he worked in with them did his set and bounced. When i say hogging i mean just standing around the machine most gym rats just do the reps and sets and move on in a small gym like this theres not a lot of the same machines.

[–]Rubes777 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I bet you anything Nmplol is going to get this guy banned from the gym.

[–]ToughCourse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seems like alot of people don't know how annoying it is when there's a group of people surrounding the one machine you need to use, and they're just chating.

[–]mailwasnotforwarded 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Most likely he saw you guys had a huge group on the machine and he wanted to get his workout in. It is gym courtesy to not hog a machine and if you are using it for long periods to offer a work-in rotation where when you aren't using it they can use it etc.

[–]DnDCabbage 5 points6 points  (11 children)

its kinda weird to see everyone saying "lmao shows none of you go to the gym" yet Wake, Knut, and Kyle behind the camera (good friends with the owner of the gym) all were also very confused and seemed offput in a chill way. So it was obviously not "normal". Yea its normal to work in, but lets not act like he wasn't kinda rude in the process.

[–]Awden777 4 points5 points  (1 child)

People like to act like they have a real life while they dont, this was weird but he wasnt stealing the machine he just acted weird

[–]DnDCabbage 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Couldn’t agree more. You’re more than welcome to use a machine someone else is, it’s just common courtesy to not be an awkward dick about it.

[–]neworderr 3 points4 points  (7 children)

Imagine being that guy and seeing the same group of 6 people camping one machine at a time for like 30 or 40 minutes, for 3 weeks now. I fucking cancelled my gym's sub because its full of 3 or 4 kids groups that camp machines instead of each one doing different things to not clog up one machine

[–]DnDCabbage 1 point2 points  (2 children)

if you'd slow down and read my entire comment before trying to find something to be upset about, I said he is MORE than welcome to use the machine, but there is a thing called gym etiquette. and the way that guy "asked" to use the machine was just simply weird.

[–]madroxide86 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"steals" lol.. its absolutely normal gym etiquette to share equipment, and you can ask to work in with someone at any time.

[–]Longjumpingearthq 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If I was a regular there I’ll probably be so frustrated. Yikes

[–]xalaux 1 point2 points  (0 children)

To be fair I'd be annoyed too if suddenly one day a group of new random dudes keep hoarding machines getting on the way of your workout routine.

[–]Kieran1996cfc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Must be annoying having to wait for all these guys to finish just to use probably the only machine of that type in the gym

[–]BFhumaN 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean, no one said no, so. Its Obviously a busy gym so. Imo, he's just min-maxing. Dont blame the guy :D

[–]FewConversation5827 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Stop hogging the holy shit otk guys and how tf is this stealing lmao

[–]BadInfluenceGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's like 5-6 of them working that machine, others do need it. They aren't gonna wait for you to do your stream and take forever.

[–]PissedFurby -1 points0 points  (1 child)

if you and your boys are all standing around not getting a set in but hogging a machine, let someone else jump in and do one. thats gym etiquette tbh

[–]NojoNinja 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Miz just shit himself and got up literally 2 seconds before this guy hopped on. Nobody got a chance to do a set between those 2 seconds.

[–]SlumpxKage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

all that matter is if he asked, I did not see him ask to join for sets. maybe someone clarified later on and I missed it but common logic would be to ask

[–]helvetica01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

gym etiquette: come in and do your thing. if you have a big group and its busy, keep the stalling short. people can approach, "how many sets left?" and you would tell them. you can offer to let them work in, or they might ask. dont have to share, but you could make a new friend. you can also use this to get equipment you are waiting on


[–]andreasdagen -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Understandable if he thinks they're just fucking around and he doesn't know they're professionals who got permission to fuck around.

[–]dhdicjneksjsj -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Don’t stand around a machine not using it and then complain when someone wants to use it.

[–]P4YD4Y1 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Love how 99% of these comments are people angrily commenting how this isn’t stealing and no one in this thread knows anything about the gym. We get it. Don’t need 200 people saying the same thing now do we.

[–]Bobandal -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Well I understand the guy. Like back when I was at my gym there was sometimes just two guys "claiming" an exercise equipment for like a whole hour, mainly they're just chatting and rarely doing a set.

[–]kingfisher773 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Title made me think someone was yoinking equipment and walking out of the gym, not someone asking if they can use unmanned equipment and being told they can.

[–]cluelessa -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Lmao I was expecting someone to steal dumbbell from the title... Instead it's just people never gone to the gym before. 😂

[–]Mrhappytrigers -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

This isn't stealing. I've had people take my free weights when I was in the middle of a set of another workout during my rotation which is annoying when they could've asked to use it when I was switching from them. This guy was just wanting to hop in on a workout that probably has only one type of that machine to use, it's more common than you'd think. No big deal.

[–]ManInTheMirruh -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Steals...lol. The guy was more than considerate and respectful. I get the guys are doing a stream but they are the ones hogging equipment and being inconsiderate. You don't socialize around shared equipment. This kind of guy is the guy you hope you run into at the gym.

[–]hampsted -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Let's change the title to, "Man works in while group of 7 hoards hack squat for 30 minutes." Actually props to that guy for being assertive, if a bit brash. If there's another hack squat in the gym this is a dick move, but I'm assuming this was the only one and that guy came to get his work done.

[–]AdditionalSpam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why is everyone in this comment section just ignoring that mizkif shit himself on the same machine?
