It's no different in a civilian-side gym. I purposely go late at night or early in the morning to avoid such shenanigans.

Good strategy. When I was at Ft. Campbell, though, the gym closest to my barracks was always a ghost town.

I usually use the gym on the PoG side of post. It's not as big but it is less crowded.

My unit has it's own little gym that I use. It's small but there's enough stuff in there to get the job done if you get creative. On the plus side it's also open 24/7. The only downside is you're hard pressed to find 25lb plates in there...assclowns take them and put them in their rucks for weight and don't put them back.

I think you need to find a Crossfit gym, or start your own affiliate.

Best time to workout in any gym is early in the morning or on weekends before 1200. It is the same here for my school gym. At night, the squat racks are taken up by dudes doing power curls, sometimes with spotters. I swear that their curl weight is higher than their max deadlift.

Anyway, there are many Crossfit horror stories about globogyms. Seen at the Globo Yesterday Crossfit thread

The worst ever is my local gym right after school lets out for the day. I avoid the gym at 4pm like the plague. 6-10 kids crowd around one piece of equipment so one of them can improperly work their biceps while the rest loiter, monkey with stuff, text, or pretend to execute MMA moves on each other.

The kids are also a little two interested in each others muscles. Its a little gay.

My gym has only 1 squat rack. Between the guys doing curls and shrugs I sometimes have to wait. It really pisses me off when they set up for something other than squats and then go do some other exercise. I sometimes want to pick up the bar and throw it across the room.

My university only has two squat racks for our entire student population

Of course they have a couple dozen machines to work every angle of the biceps.

The gym I go to now has 2 squat racks, and if you go after 5 both of them are normally taken. One is taken by a group of guys every Thursday that shrug, the other is usually some personal trainer making someone do some light squats. I can't say much to the shrug guys though, because they are doing 495+ and then doing rack pulls with the same weight for sets of 8.
