    I'll be receiving spud inc's suspension straps later today. Planning on hanging them on my multigrip crossmember on my RM-6. I was originally intending to use these for SSB goodmornings, but I think it's nice to have 2 pairs of straps spotting you lol.

    When I bench, I use the Rogue straps set 1 or 2 inches higher by my head. Let's me touch my chest lightly, but not my face or neck. Thing is, I bench with minimal arch. If you lift with a lot of back arch, I don't know that straps would have any advantage over a straight safety. I prefer the pin and pipe safeties for squats, but I'm usually too lazy to change to them.

    Bottom line is that any safety that prevents a serious injury is a lot better than nothing.

    Glad Chad's incident didn't cause any injury!
