Worse Than Squat-Rack BB Curls!

Squat rack dumb bell curls! They’re real!

He was just standing there, curling away. I asked him if I could use the rack, and he tells me he just needs five more minutes!

I [politely] asked him if he was using the rack, and he quickly moved out of the way (I think I had gone super-saiyajin by then). So, it wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been, but it was still pretty unbelievable.

He needed the protection only a squat rack can offer.

All the cool kids do it

I can beat that.

I was doing bent rows and some plonker and his cronies decided to start doing barbell curls in between me and the barbell.

I’ve given up even trying to communicate with the ignoramuses that inhabit the gym around peak time. Today reminded me why I normally train at 2030.

a curl warrior! ahaha

double post :XCX

I took a DB to the squat rack once to do goblet squats. There were too many people by the DB (guido?) rack–no room.

I’m so ashamed.

Was the guy grunting loudly while doing the curls? That’s the best.

He has every right to curl where he pleases, guys. He’s gonna get “ripped” on a fat burner and “swole” on NO XPLODE! Future Olympias ALWAYS curl in the squat rack! :slight_smile:

I saw some guy doing lateral raises with DB’s in the squat rack…

What the hell is NO XPLODE? People keep mocking it, and I want in on the action.

Overpriced nitric oxide supp. I don’t know too much about it but it seems it has been proven a scam. IIRC there’s a thread on bb.com about it.

One time I accidentally deadlifted with the squat bar. My pride still hurts from the verbal ass raping I got. Another time one of the guys accidentally dropped some baby powder in the chalk bowl. Some of the guys were wondering why their hands kept slipping off the bar. To this day there is a sign above the bowl that says, “Hey assholes, this isn’t for baby powder, you dumbfucks!”

It is sort of a “kitchen sink” type supplement. It has a few different types of argenine for the supposed increase in Nitric Oxide, a few different types of creatine, some other random stuff and some caffeine. Some people like it because it gives them energy. Its probably just the caffeine.

And yes, it is overpriced.
