Re: Tips on Dumping Weight

That's the way I've done it. I've never had trouble throwing my hips forward on a back squat fail. I HATE having a spotter right behind me and touching my sides ready to pull me up if I struggle. Just let me dump it. If I fail on the lift it'll be at the first push up the legs so I really don't end up in that position to collapse forward. Knock on wood.. I squat with safety bars at home now though, so it's all good. For front movements most people I see are failing to get under the bar properly so it tends to just fall forward anyway. Just be careful and don't take chances with the rep and put yourself in a bad spot.
