what are
>pic related
for?
i've always wondered
>>
>>35695421
if you drop the bar while doing an exercise, it wont crush you
>>
>>35695421
I really can't tell if you're trolling or not.
>>
so you can put down barbell while doing shrugs.
>>
They're the dip-fly bars.

For doing dip-flys on.
>>
>>35695421
where else would you put the barbell when doing curls??
>>
What the fuck is this rack even for? I was doing OHP in one the other day and wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong
>>
>>35695421
to fuck up my squat depth
>>
>>35695421
thats a chair anono, thats where you put the siting board
>>
>>35695443
oh, so it's a safety measure?
>>35695446

>>35695477

>>
>>35695421

Safeties for benching
safeties for squatting
safeties for doing shrugs
resting the bar when you want it at hip height
etc
>>
>>35695498
>oh, so it's a safety measure?
If you consider not getting crushed by the bar safe, sure, it's a safety measure.
You can do more with it. Rack pulls and stuff.
>>

>>35695591
alright! thanks, always took a step back so i the rack was infront of me, guess i'll just take a slight step backwards and stand in the middle of the rack then
>>
>>35695613
wat
>>
>>35695613
I still can't believe you made this thread.
Anyway, glad you got it now.
Good luck with lifting!
>>
>>35695421
that's where you put the bar between curl sets.
>>
>>35695421
They're for loudly clanging the bar against at the bottom of each rep.
>>
Yes, they are for safety. If you fail a squat rep, it is where you would dump the bar and then just kinda "duck walk" out from under it, while being giggled at by that qt3.14 cardio bunny.

My gym has adjustable "safety bars" like this. I'm just learning to squat but I find they help me with getting good depth - I set them to where my depth should be, and then make sure I lightly touch them with the bar on each rep.

>>35695689
>doing squats on a smith
>cardio bunnies occupy rack next to me
fuck off im married
>>
>>35695421
its to tell you that you're squatting low enough
>>
>>35695421
Tricep dips.
>>
>>35695421
These fuckers are way too high at my gym. Have to walk the bar back to squat full ROM...

You stand on them so you can deadlift the cunting bar, you bell-end.
