    Leaving plates racked on the bar and on j-hooks

    I’m in the process of setting up my home gym.
    - Part of the appeal is obviously convenience.
    - I’m lazy enough to be considering buying three bars so I can leave them set up with the plates I finished the last session with (squat/bench/deadlift). A fourth bar would be empty for warmups.

    But... Is there an issue with leaving my bars in this way? The bench and squat bars would be left on jhooks on my power rack (it’s a very strong one, so could take the weight).

    Beauty of the home gym, make your own rules.
    Rack your weights or don’t rack your weights. It’s up to you.
    And no your equipment will not get damaged from this.

    Thanks mate. That’s what I was hoping to hear. Thought it might risk damage...
