      I like it. It's actually # 14, because some of the other ones were silly.

        'probably' lol
        beautiful
        yeah you are

        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
        lol

          How about “The squat rack is for squatting. And nothing else.”

            Well, there's really no other spot to do anything else. The squat rack pretty much takes up the whole loft. I even do my bicep curls in there, but not until the other dudes have all gone home.

              I'll take a stab at it:

              1. Everybody squats.
              2. Everybody squats below parallel.
              3. Blood, sweat, and chalk are allowed. Tears are not.
              4. Take a knee after heavy deadlifts. You’ll have a shorter distance to fall if you pass out.
              5. Weightlifting shoes. Chuck Taylors. Bare feet. If your footwear is not listed, take it off.
              6. You will be judged, harassed, teased, and abused. Sometimes it will be constructive.
              7. Treat the barbell better than yourself. We don't need you, but we really need the barbell.
              8. Bench press spotting is not a two-person shrug & press. If it's moving, only the presser touches it.
              9. Yelling, grunting, and howling are allowed as long as they match the effort and sound like you have chest hair.
              10. "You got it, bro", visible nipples, and similar violations will result in beatings.
              11. Why are you still reading the rules and not squatting?

                    He's a fierce libertarian and would defend my right to curl in my own squat rack.

                    Made some adjustments based on Quikky's list. The current rules:

                    GYM RULES

                    1. Everybody squats
                    2. If you don’t break parallel, they’re not squats
                    3. Blood, sweat, and chalk are permitted. Excuses (and tears) are not
                    4. Take a knee after your heavy set of deadlifts. You’ll fall a shorter distance if you pass out
                    5. Lifting in squishy-soled shoes will not be tolerated. Dedicated weightlifting shoes are encouraged. Lifting in Chuck Taylors or shoeless is also acceptable
                    6. This is not a judgment-free zone. You will be judged, harassed, teased, and abused. Sometimes, it will be constructive
                    7. Treat the barbell kindly. We need it far more than we need you
                    8. Always conduct yourself in a safe manner
                    9. Do not attempt to use rule # 8 to justify limiting the intensity of your efforts.
                    10. Bench press is a 1-man exercise. Spotters may touch the bar only to hand it off to the lifter and once it has ceased moving upwards
                    11. You may grunt, shout, and even roar like a lion; but the intensity of your effort must justify your guttural utterances
                    12. Saying “it’s all you, Bro" or "you got it, Bro!”, wearing tank tops that show your nipples, and other silly bullshit will result in beatings
                    13. Dirty and/or torn clothing is ok, assuming it emits no offensive odors
                    14. Why are you still reading the rules when you should be squatting?

                      Here's a couple of posters for ya:







                      There are sexier ones out there but they look like the girl probably doesn't really squat. Not that you guys would care.
                      Female, 5'3", 50, Max squat: 202.5lbs. Max deadlift: 225 x 3.

                        Rich, you need a name for your gym too. How about:

                        Beards & Barbells Athletic Club.

                          At least name your barbell.

                            one should be able to curl in one's own squat rack.....I curl in mine......the offence would be if someone else was waiting to squat...
                            I have 1 rule to add......."no bosu balls allowed"
                            fats are the new sweets!

                              Well, I like it, but I think the lack of Bosu balls speaks for itself.

                                I also wish that my gym would make a rule that everybody must squat (except me!), so I could have the leg machines all to myself and do giant sets between them without any newbies disturbing my routine! I am also a great fan of short and abbreviated routines for everybody (except me!), such as HIT, that keep people out of the gym as much as possible and out of my way…
