Squrlers

squat-rack-actually-curl-rack[1]Today at the gym there were three “squrlers” (my new new name for squat rack curlers) all in a row doing bicep curl reps inside the squat rack.  It seems like squrling is a highly contagious disease.  One gym member does it, another gym member sees it and follows suit.  At the Wellness center there seems to be quite a few squrlers.

The gym layout makes this behavior even stranger since the preset barbell tree is right next to the squat rack, containing barbells ranging in weight from 20 to 110 pounds.  These barbells would satisfy the curling needs of pretty much any gym goer.  Unless you are Lee Haney and rep 225 pound barbell curls, you really should steer clear of the squat rack.

My session today was a mix of core work and bodyweight bench pressing.  I feel well exerted.
