    I've been up over the recommended max weight for the bench for a while now, and the supports for the bench rack were beginning to compress down into themselves (starting to not be able to put the incline support bar through the holes) but I was holding off on getting a new rig... well last week I was pushing my last set of flat bench, getting a good foot drive and arch, and the motherfucker began to tip backwards!!!! :eek3: Luckily I didn't drop the bar on my face, though I had to fail out and rest it on my chest... after that I said, fuck this, and went this week to get a new gym for home setup. Which is good, I needed a real squat rack anyway. :bigthumb:

    oh yeah and my lifts are going up like crazy again for some reason :eek3:
