Since my gym does not have a power rack I’ve done something similar before, but I used to benches. This allows me to slide a bit between them and not have to reach that far back to get the bar. It also makes it easier to change the plates, since the bar is stable.
Good fucking idea.
Also maybe using a normal bench and one of the adjustable ones as the second one, so as to knot tie up two adjustable benches, or even three if ur stealing a bar. [/quote]
Fortunately the one thing my gym seems to have enough of are adjustable benches. Half of them are shit, but still.
The problem with using two different kinds of benches could possibly be the difference in height. Unless the gym is crazy busy I would stick to using two benches of the same kind. Since it’s just for one exercise it’s not going to take too long. The setup does waste a minute or two, though.
Yea I don’t really mind a height different if it’s like 1-2in. since it won’t matter during the pressing, but either way it’s taking up 2 pieces of equipment at once. I tried it today between the 2 flat benches today and it seems good (with just the bar anyway), but I’ll have to go early otherwise I’ll be lucky to get even one.
wat about using one f those preacher curl racks and two people for the lift off like this
that of course if you can find a pair of guys who knwo something about lifting and you can trust in…thats why i dont do them anymore,
hope your lucky and dont have to stand a gym where evne the staff in charge of the weighroom cant bench 225 neither spot correctly …
those are the people who gives bodybuilders a bad reputation[/quote]
Well then I’m still either needing 2 people or to pull it from behind.
