    Looks awesome, I have a feeling we won't be seeing it in most gyms for many years.

    Edit: Would this be good for maxing out on squats?

    And also, I'm sure that adds some horizontal resistance too. Hook the horizontal slider to the pulley too and we'll have some interesting results :noes:

    Self-spotting machines are nice when you can drop the weight. If you are trying to max out on squats it would be difficult to get the weight off you safely (let it roll down your back?). :dunno:

    I've seen a similar machine in a Boston Sports Club gym...pretty nice stuff, but it is difficult to become accustomed to using a self spotting machine. You drop the weight but it is still held up until you grab the bar again..it felt weird to me

    if it was pimp enough, it could be sensitive to touch, and if you took your hands off of it, it wouldnt move anymore. not sure how that would work with it resting on your back though.

    Yeah what the fuck is the point? Thats the dumbest shit I've ever seen and the example on the website sucks.

    Why would I want to do front raises on that thing as opposed to using a barbell. Wow, its a power rack on fucking rails. Sign me the fuck up and let the good times roll!
