Curling In The Squat Rack

You're doing it wrong...and you shouldn't be curling in the squat rack anyways!

*Edit: It's a power rack shown above, not a squat rack. And the person pictured is Mark Nichols, 2006 Olympic Gold Medalist in Curling!

And just to note, he never curls in the rack:

Feel privileged that I made it in @ blog! Pretty good form if you ask me! Note - I never curl in the rack.

So if an Olympic Gold Medalist in Curling doesn't curl in the rack, then why should anyone else?

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
