It’s obvious which points make sense, so I wont reiterate, with my opinion. I will say, I work in a corp. gym. They are typically very careful about any sort of loose strings which may be considered negligence. The company is trying to get investors to go public and their shit needs to be pretty tight to show said potential investors.
Our leg press isnt bolted down, the building owners dont want us to bolt anything down. It moves about 2 feet back a week. So they may be covered, or they may not be concerned with A 500 LB machine with a low center of gravity falling over.[/quote]
Speaking of leg presses, at this god-forsaken gym I train at the leg press machine flipped over last week. Granted it was due to stupidity of the user. The guy loaded up the leg press, did quarter presses (maybe 9-10 plates per side) then proceeded to strip all the weight off of ONE side. BOOM thing flipped over and the part you put the weights on that was now empty caught on the guys shirt and threw him off balance.
Thanks BG for all the insight into this.
