    i dont think you do unless your squat rack doesn't have safety pins, but I personally would rather just dump it. maybe its different if you're at huge weight like 700+ or something though :hs:

    the squat rack i use (cage) has those safety bars that you can slide in at different heights... when i squat, i put them pretty much all the way at the bottom so they're pretty much completely useless :rofl:

    good thing i don't squat for low reps

    edit: forgot about the maxing part :rofl:
    i haven't maxed pretty much ever... but i have a day penciled in on my calendar to max this spring

    i wanna max out my DL but everytime i think about it, i remember that video that chris posted up of that tall dude trying to pull 700 and ended up with "blood in his spine ____" from what he said..

    i know what he was trying to do is a lot heavier than what my max is but, damn that looked painful man. and i couldn't see anything wrong with what he was doing (form, speed, whatever)...:dunno:

    I failed on a box squat without a spotter a long time ago. That was interesting... I just kinda sat there for a minute try to figure out what I was going to do and eventually dumped the 275 lbs off my back from a seated position and let it crash on the pins.
