I’ve been using the squat racks for deadlifts. There are two reasons:
It’s way easier to load and unload the bar while it’s on the lower part of the rack, about hip level.
It’s also next to the best, most open place for doing deadlifts in (although still not very open, people can barely walk past).
Maybe I’m just a n00b and I don’t understand how to load the bar properly for deadlifts. If so, hopefully someone will clue me in. Anyway, does anyone else think it’s OK to use the squat rack for deadlifts?
