Curl in the squat rack? What is this world coming to?
The truth is, the rules of gym etiquette are there to make life easier for others. If you’re the only person in your basement, you absolutely can curl anywhere you want. You can drop the weights. You can drag every bench and barbell and pad to wherever it’s most convenient to do hip thrusts, and nobody is going to stop you. As an inveterate bar-dropper, I approve this message.
