    Hammer Strength Technique Trays

    I'm trying to find out if these technique trays are desinged to handle dropped weight. Anyone know? The sales reps at Hammer Strength have not been especially helpful as of yet... thanks!!! * **http://www.lifefitness.com/commercia....html#overview

    My first thought would be controlled drops only, I wouldn't want to just let it drop onto them!! However, I don't have any experience with them, and have wondered the same thing myself when looking at them!! Let us know what you find out, though!!!

    No, they cannot handle dropped weights. I have used them several times, but wouldn't suggest them over boxes for drops.

    Olympic weightlifting had made me not only stronger and quicker but also better looking and possibly more well-endowed. See what it can do for you!

    No I don't, although I have used the Hammer Strength squat rack. I can tell you that most of that equipment was not designed with serious weightlifting in mind.

    Those trays are not going to work for repeated drops of hundreds of pounds from 7 feet in the air. Think about it... you drop the bar just a few inches forward and not only will your expensive barbell go slamming into the metal arms of the "tray", but the weight is now moving back at a high velocity directly toward your shins. Have fun with that.

    No, they have these ****ty hammer strength racks at my university gym and they definitely won't take weight dropped on them.
