Started Starting Strength at a gym today and when I came to the presses, I discovered that the power rack didn't have holes on the outside of the vertical members, meaning a loaded bar could only be inside the rack's frame.
Pressing inside the rack wasn't possible as the bar would hit the top members of the rack.
Now as I was only starting out, I could clean the bar up into the right position, but I fear as my press needs more weight, this won't be possible, or if possible, take available energy away from the upcoming presses.
I looked around the gym and could find no other piece of machinery to load a bar up at sternum height, and be able to walk under the bar to dislodge it.
I then checked out the only other two gyms in proximity, and they too had power racks that didn't allow a bar to be held on the outside the frame.
What's the solution here?
