ROFL, no powerlifting? so nobody can bench or squat there? that's funny. Just ignore them.
Curlbros and benchbros are always around the "curl-rack" when I get to my 24HR. Then they stare at me as I ATG squat 2 plates. After I put on the 3rd plate, that area clears out and nobody's there to bother me. Same thing happens when I DL more than 3 plates for reps.
I'd like to use chalk, but I'm too lazy to bother with it, I just use straps for my last/heaviest set of DL's, all others I just use a mixed grip.
