Should be using your abs to get the weight off of your hands/arms and back.

Agreed - shouldn't really have much weight on the arms - having said that, I have trouble extending and moving my arms after an intense arms day so I can see where he is coming from.

I avoid riding after legs day myself, just feel like I have much less control when my legs are tired.

IF I'm doing back/bi, how so I use my abs???

Preacher curls, not sure where abs would come into play
Standing curls, I actually crack my knees and take the weight in my thighs
For cable pull-downs, I have to hold on with something besides my abs. Same for rows

Hawkeye understood what I meant.

My comment is about when you ride your motorcycle. You shouldn't be putting weight on your wrists/arms/hands. Nor using your back to hold your torso up.

I know it's counter intuitive. I've been told to correct my posture for years because I have a tendency to slouch/hunch over being really tall. Then I started doing track days and my riding coaches are telling me I need to break that posture rule and hunch over supporting my upper body with my abs. When I do this, it does wonders for my riding as my arms are no longer fatigued and I'm able to ride my motorcycle more effectively.

Definitely understand the legs part too. I find myself squeezing my legs against the fuel tank all the time. Braking, both legs pinched in. Cornering/hanging off the bike, opposite leg pushed into the tank.

I do it so much that I have Stomp tank grip pads on my motorcycles and you can see me gripping the tank a lot with my leathers with the wear marks.

Gotcha.

If my low back hurts, getting on my cruiser is a great relief. I sit upright, arms extended almost perfect at the shoulders. It's the squeezing/twisting of hand controls. If your forearm spasms, there isn't much you can control at that point.

That may be the difference, both ZX and I are talking about sport bikes, definitely a different ride style.

As I was doing dips on a four-sided station facing center a gentleman donning the leggings proceeded to do pull-ups facing center right next to me. I thought at first I was on one of those gay hidden camera shows, but nope, he was just a douche.
So in general what annoys me is anyone who isn’t conscientious and ends up disturbing my homeostasis and the sanctity of gym etiquette and hygiene.

The whole dudes with leggings and no shorts is fascinating to me.

That’s just a whole other level of not giving a shit that I kinda admire in a weird way

Shorts over the legging is what makes no sense to me. What's the point pick a pair of pants don't wear 2.

What about wear compression shorts under leggings- no shorts on top?

I've found this the most comfortable method especially on leg day.

I always wear a 2XL shirt that goes down to my quads though so your girls aren't caught looking at my junk like the filthy vixens that they are

I’m sure it’s comfortable, but then it looks like you’re working out in a night gown with panty hose

ah! there's this one guy here who has to manage to talk to everyone before he even works out. he spends about 10 minutes or more with each person asking how their day is and blah blah blah. i see him coming i try not to make eye contact. that's why i think it helps with my Dre Beats cause i can just walk off and act like he wasn't even there

Oh, he’s one of “those” guys. There used to be a guy at my gym that was kind of like that except he would primarily talk to women to get their numbers. Had another weirdo that would come in occasionally wearing some ski sunglasses type shit. Probably wore them to stare at women.

Haha there's a guy at my gym who wears transition eye glasses that turn into sun glasses when you're outdoors but for some reason, it does it while hes inside the gym. I don't know maybe its bright enough inside. I always thought they were sunglasses the first few times I saw him and thought he was a creep like your guy but then saw they were transitions.

I have always had my own gym because people are weird! I workout to stay strong as I can , not to socialize. I recommend y'all do the same.
