Basically my question is this. I used to train with a spotter, not so much anymore, I want to start going heavier again for squats than I currently do. Yesterday I was getting up there....I put the bars you see below right under parallel so if I were to bail they would be there....Do you guys trust this? Is it more or less safe? Does anyone practice this to failure every leg workout? Are there any real dangers to doing this? at some points with lighter weight i would actually "tap" the bars, pause, then raise if you know what I mean.
