    I know it's used for squatted and such, but what's the diff between that and a rack? just the fact that you dont have to walk the weight out since the holder part moves?

    Yes, because it isn't easy to walk 1000lbs around.

    ok, gotcha :)

    I'll just stick with the normal power rack :hs: you know, until i get to 1000 lbs.

    I'm gonna ask the powerlifter dude at my gym to train me..he's impressive

    Ya i was reading that thread. I don't have any problem with 400lbs and I have seen people walk out with 800+, but usually they are repping it, I am guessing it is more important to not expend any unnecessary energy during a max attempt that high.

    Yeah, I can't imagine how much ATP you go through takes 2 steps backwards with 1/2 a ton on your back (i'm being serious)

    You can't, but it's possible.
