Do a kettle bell dl then. My gym has 13 squat racks and 8 dl stations. It's nice
to always have the space available. If you don't want to pay for a different gym it's understandable, but it's also incredibly frustrating when people use the equipment for things other than the exercises they were intended for. If your gym doesn't have a dl station, do they at least have bumper plates? Shirly you're not deadlifting with metal plates. It destroys the bars, the plates, and the floor. If you don't want to switch you should ask them about putting in a dl station or two.
