I have done a crap ton of heavy squats in my life and not once did I consider heaving the weight off my back for no particular reason. We can argue all day long but to me it is ridiculous and unecessary...
That's funny. From the floor I can strip one side completely and then the other. It takes me less time than taking them off the rack and I can roll them straight into the rack instead of carrying them to the ground I also don't have to worry about taking to much weight off one side in the rack and having it flip over!...to each his own
