    seriously ?s

    question 1:

    in the squat rack next to mine, this older gentlemen put 405 lbs on the bar and started to do (standing single knee raises... i think that is the name). any idea to the benefit?

    second question:

    this dude looked like he was losing balance... at some points. i know what the safety pins are for... but what exactly happens when a 6'0 + person drops 400+ lbs on them, while standing? will i be impaled by flying metal debris? because the racks are A BIT close. should i be worried?

    thanks in advance.

    Also curious.

    And awfully impressed, if someone is doing lunges with 405.

    negative... these in alternating fashion:

    like a soldier's march.

    Yes, that's beyond my personal wildest dreams.

    TS, I cannot fathom what your "older gentleman" might be doing with that much weight just lifting alternate legs. Strengthening his bones? Dunno.

    Maybe some type of Barbell Step Up variation??( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qq6GkSqRowQ... Your description is not the best.. If 400 pounds fell on the guy I would be more worried about the blood splashing on me rather than the metal debri hitting me
