Squat rack curlers. We all know them. We all hate them. But tonight, I tasted just a little bit of sweet revenge.
My gym’s only squat rack was, as usual, being used. But they also have an honest-to-goodness curl rack; it looks like a squat rack for midgets. And as I was walking in, it was empty.
So I threw away the cambered bar, loaded up an olympic bar, tossed it onto the curl rack, and proceeded to do a few sets of Zercher squats. Seeing the look on all the curlers’ faces, the confusion, the deer-in-headlights as the realized they might have to pick their precious EZ-Curl off the ground, made a little bit of me come back to life.
