    Hey what do you guys do when you see dudes doing barbell curls in the squat rack?

    It happened to me tonight, these two huge black guys were doing curls and I interrupted them. I asked them if they were done doing curls in the squat rack, and they gave me the :ugh: face and left. It made me feel good to confront those clowns, but then i got :hs: when i went to load the bar and noticed that the weight they were curling was only 30 lbs less than i had planned to squat. I hate being a beginner at this weightlifting stuff.

    I tell them to go cross the Rio Grande back to mexico and then I punch them in their dumb faces to protect my girl and my squat rack.

    passive aggressive behavior by staring at them with an annoyed look or when fuckers decides to curl close behind me at the rack, I just unrack force them to back the fuck off in a middle of their set, never making eye contact or saying a word :o

    one day I might get my ass kicked at the gym

    take F&N's lessons in regards to social behavior in the gym with a grain of salt, especially when you're a newbie. and don't talk down to guys that are bigger than you, you're just setting yourself up for a whooping or you're going to get clowned on in a manner that no wit would recover you from

    I just give myself dirty looks when I look in the mirror while doing curls in the squat rack so I don't feel as guilty.

    I am too, and that leads me to believe that none of this happened.

    you have 90% of the gym to do curls, why choose a setting used for leg training? It would be like me going to eat my lunch in the closet of a cafeteria, instead of at a table that is meant for it.

    See av.

    Squats should take priority in the squat rack. But since no one ever actually uses a squat rack for squatting (at least where I go), it's probably ok.

    I only do it when there's not a line up and there's at least one squat rack free. Otherwise I'll just grab a barbell and do it in front of a mirror elsewhere.

    didn't you post awhile ago that said you curl int he squat rack? I don't see anything wrong with it unless someone needs it to squat.
