I have worked out only in my school gym, so I dont have much experience of other gyms. Other than curling in power rack, I have also noticed that lot of lifters do deadlifts, cleans and barbell rows (from the floor) while standing in the power rack. These are heavy lifts no doubt, but you dont really need a power rack for these, and keep others from squatting or doing rack pulls, or pin presses and such while you go about working from the floor.

Our gym has about 4-5 of extra Oly barbells (apart from those in the power racks), and plenty of unoccupied floor space. I would like to see folks using this space and those extra bars, especially in the rush hours. I dont care if they use the power rack for curls or rows or whatever as long as there's nobody waiting to do a set of squats or pin presses or any lift that actually needs the power racks.

Rather than actually state this as a "rule", it might be a good idea to educate a gym member about these things as a matter of "etiquette".


Yeah, I have thought seriously about 2 rules.....


1. Respect others
2. Respect yourself

I wonder how that would work?
