Yesterday I started on my first day of “powerlifting” training.
I’m new to the sport, but already in one day, I’m pretty sure I got more weird “what the hell?” type looks than I’ve ever gotten before in the gym (well, except for that time I was chasing a few girls around the pool and just so happened to be nekkid from a high-diving incident, but that’s neither here nor there).
Sadly, I must admit, I was doing some movements I’ve laughed at other people for doing (lockout strength exercises in general with a restricted range of motion).
I may not have been doing Squat-Rack Curls, but I was most definately doing some benching work in a squat rack.
What types of exercise has T-Nation done that’s gotten some strange looks from typical gymgoers in the past?
