No frickin way

I saw it today. Someone doing curls in the squat rack!! I think I stopped for 5 minutes just to watch. Why the heck to people do this kind of crap. Especially at my gym, which has preweighted barbells up to 125lbs.

Gun Show bro! Pchew! Pchew!

This morning there was loaded curl bar (not even a barbell) just left on the weightlifing platform. I was picturing some dudes just using the platform for curls.

Curling in the squat rack is old and busted...curling on the platform is the new hotness

I actually curled with an EZ-bar on a platform last night. Mostly just because that was where I was lifting everything else, and it's not like anybody was waiting to use the platform.

True, my experience with the platform as most globo/college gyms is that no one is actually waiting to use them....ever.

Yes, I actually did. I do a little bit, but not much - my Tuesdays and Thursday are for weaknesses that I don't hit at the weightlifting team, so really a lot of upper body stuff - presses and rows of different types, weighted chins and dips. And some random stuff if I have time.
