Some comments in another post have made me believe we need to address this issue. What uses are acceptable for the power rack at the gym?
I use the power rack for squats, pin pulls and barbell shrugs. I don’t care how much you curl, because its not enough to require a squat rack! There’s no way you’re curling more than you can deadlift, so get the hell out of the way and pick up your curl weight from the ground!
I think its OK to use it for shrugs if you’re shrugging close to what you deadlift. (I’m currently working with 420 on shrugs and I don’t want a deadlift workout every time I shrug).
That being said, what are the unspoken “Rules of the Power Rack?”
