LOL that is the most retarded prediction I've ever read...he's either dumb or trying to stir up some controversy but then again who listens to this clown anyways?
I feel the same way about spotting squats to be quite honest. Spotting the deadlift is a first though.
I understand but its different. If you cant lift the deads you cant pick them up or if you give out they just go down. If you fail during squats it can be much more dangerous.
Which is why you squat in a rack.
Also I've always liked watching the weightlifters; they seem to be able to dump a loaded bar no matter what position they are in. Why is it so hard for the rest of us??
I would highly disagree with this. Front squats are much harder to escape in a failed attempt than a back squat. It's easy to escape at the height of the movement, but if you're at the bottom and you can't get it up, it's much harder than just rolling the bar down your back.Also, partially unrelated, since they do more front squats than back that is much easier to just eject on the lift.
