No egos hurt here, I am very open to opinions, I've been stepping up to the weight and going for 3 x 5 now. Any recommendations of a good work out plan? My weight goal is 195.

For deadlifts, when you bring the bar back down, do you guys try to control it to the point where it doesn't "bang or crash" (as in let it down as slow as possible to make as little noise as possible)?

I ask because for the first time, someone in the gym came up to me and told me it was annoying. I usually let it down in a controlled manner, but it does make sound when it touches the floor because that's physics. After the guy told me he was annoyed, he went to talk to the other guy doing deadlifts. I can't tell if he's just being stingy or if we were both doing it wrong.
If he's not the weight room attendant, then just ignore him and continue on with the workout. I've had that said to me for god knows how many times lol, and tbh, there's not much you can really do for deadlifts. It's an anti-gravity pulling movement which means it will be that much harder to control...

As long as you're not purposely slamming the plates onto the ground to create more noise, having the weights kinda clash on the ground is inevitable if you're doing a weight that is appropriate for you(meaning its a weight that is challenging enough for you). If you don't have that sound, you know you're not pushing yourself hard enough. It all depends on the type of workout you're doing too. If you're going for a hypertrophy rep scheme, and are going on more of the high rep scheme and lower weight, then you should be better able to control the clashing, but if you're lifting heavy, its inevitable.


Just take a look at powerlifter/bodybuilder record breaker, tuan tran.

I slam the weight when I do clean pulls


me making a little noise is better than breaking my back because your sensitive ears couldn't take a little banging

Put some mats down underneath where the bar touches the ground. Any noise after that is gonna happen no matter what, tell them to deal with it

Which gym is this?

I used to workout at Fitness World in Richmond, and this one white guy was super sensitive over noise. He came up to me on a few occasions complaining about me slamming the weight and hurting his ears when I was DL'ing. It's not like I was dropping the bar after every rep. Even if I did touch and go, the plates clanging on the bar make noise.

It was a 40 year-old tool who wears short shorts, a beater, and some preppy Zach Morris haircut from the 90s.

The worst part is, I would've been happy to try to work things out with him, except the guy came up to me AND ONLY ME out of everyone in the gym. Out of everyone who drops their weights, he decided to single me out.

BTW, I can't remember where I read it, but I heard that it's the 2nd half of the DL motion, where the weight comes back down, is where you're most at risk for injury if done incorrectly. It's not a good idea to try to control it, better just to let the weight come down naturally.

Anyway, I ditched that stupid gym. Best workout decision of my life.

this is like going to a construction site and complaining its too loud. Lifting heavy shit and putting it down is gonna make noise. Should have told him where the Yoga studio is. Next time just give him 2$ and tell him to go buy ear plugs or stay home where its quiet.

I don't remember him doing that. He was tall. About 6'2" I'd say, and tan. About 200 lbs I'd wager, maybe more.

Yea, seriously, that guy was uncompromising. He acutally bitched to his buddy, and then that guy came over and decided to complain. His buddy is like "I do more weight than that and I don't make that much noise blah blah". Like wtf, I'm not trying to make noise, it just happens. He'd bitch at me, go back to whatever the hell he was doing, and in the background there would be people chucking their DBs after flat bench - not a word was said to them. Jesus. It's one of those times where you think of the best things to say....but only during the drive home.

If he complains to me again even with mats, I'll use the combined consensus which is to stare at him, call him a phaggot (or not say anything), and continue lifting
Slamming barbells is fine. Slamming dumbbells is what annoys me. But even then, no need to say anything. If someone wants to be annoying, that's their thing, leave them be

Dunbar Community Centre. The guy who complained to me is around the same age as the guy you had an issue with (most likely not the same guy based on your description of him). My guy only does cardio and random stretches on mats, yet at the same time talks loudly to his friends (I'm assuming they're his friends). It really ticks me off, but I'll just tell him what's up the next time he complains.
