In this past year being here I've noticed that the gym etiquette here in Taipei can be minimal to non-existent. Things like leaving the weights on the floor, leaving the bench is still loaded, people using multiple things at one time, doing the same exercise for 30 minutes at a time seem commonplace to me. Wanted to know if this is particular to the gym I go to? You guys have any stories of bad etiquette? g8rman05

You all know the type, he comes 3 times a week and from what I can tell he does 4 exercises every time, smith machine bench press 10 reps 10 sets 70kgs 3 inch range of motion. This is followed by the barbell curl 10 reps 10 sets back and shoulders swinging the bar up, Dumbbell curl 10 reps 10 sets back and shoulders swinging the dumbbells and last but not least the seated dumbbell curl with his arm supported by his leg. It is not his routine that bothers me so much but the fact that he never de-loads the smith machine, leaves the dumbbells on the floor and when he is doing his seated curls he sits right in front of the weights stacked up so other people can not get to them. The changing rooms here are a much nicer place to change clothes than in Korea too. All in all I like The gym experiences I have had in Taiwan.
