How do you deal with people who start doing pull ups behind you at a power rack while you are squatting in it?

At my gym, they ask before starting something like that... Otherwise I`d tell them to stopp it...

In my gym only the people in the morning ask. But now i also train in the afternoon sometimes and then there are some people who don't ask.

Have to find a way to keep the idiots away. Maybe i gonna place my towel over the pull up bar haha.

Ask them sternly, but politely, to wait until you are through squatting. If they don't comply, dump the weight behind you. Look down at their broken carcass and tell them, "That's why you wait."

:laughing3: What Hoosegow said.

I also hate anybody walking behind me across the olympic platform when I'm doing cleans, snatches, or jerks. Guys, this weight is moving fast, if you get in the way it's going to move *through* you.

Every now and then I drop a kettle bell near their foot. That clears space.
