I was assertive with someone tonight. Great build on this fellow (except for legs--I'm always tempted to ask Why Skip Leg Day?); we both got to the cable crossover machine at the same time. For me it's the only spot to do pull-ups (I use a weighted belt). For him, he planned to do triceps push-downs. There's literally six places to do that on this machine.
He motioned that he would need the space directly under the pull-up bar for his triceps push-downs, and I said, incredulously, "This whole space?"
He said, "Yes," so I insisted he go first. He literally backed four feet away from the pulley and did his push-downs directly under the pull-up bar. After he finished I did my first set of pull-ups.
Up walks another fellow, just passing through, hoping to slip in a set of pull-ups (it was crowded tonight). I motioned him in, and he did his set--which blocked the triceps guy. The look on triceps guy's face was fun--what? you're using my space? I said to triceps guy, "When it's crowded, I just do my push-downs that direction because the pulley swivels."
He said, "That makes sense," and proceeded to do his exercise NOT like a dumbass who needs the entire gym for his eensy weesy push-down.
