Has this ever happened to you? You hit the gym early in the morning, all pumped up for a great session. Itís leg day and you know what that means, so you put your serious face on and trudge into the gym. Only to find that some 16 year old pipsqueak is standing in the squat rack doing bicep curls!
Iíve got nothing against 16 year old kids in the gym, trying to improve their bodies. I used to be one of them myself, once upon a time. What I do hate is when those kids spend their time in the squat racks, doing bicep curls. Theyíre called squat racks for a reason people.
And itís not just the young guys, oh no, this is a far bigger problem. People of all ages think itís fantastic to use the squat rack to do bicep curls. Is it because you can leave the barbell on the supports so you donít have to actually bend down to pick the bar up? Probably.
If youíre one of these people, stop doing it. This is what you need to be doing instead. Head into the squat rack and load up a bar with a good weight for you. Get under the bar and then start squatting. I guarantee if you only made this change to your workouts, you would see startling results.
At my local gym, I love it that no one squats. Apart from those idiots who do their bicep curls in it, I pretty much have it all to myself. But when Iím trying to be nice (And thatís not very often) and actually help people out, I tell people squatting is a must. Itís such a powerful exercise, you would literally be a moron to not do it.
The thing that holds people back is pain. I wonít sugar coat it. The squat, when done correctly, takes a lot of effort and a fair bit of discomfort. But itís this pain and discomfort that forces your body to grow, so unless you can get out of your comfort zone and push through the pain barrier, youíre going to be in trouble.
So I hope you now realize what you need to be doing. If you are one of those pesky guys doing bicep curls in the squat rack, stop immediately. Quite simply, if you donít squat, youíre really holding yourself back. So go and do it!
