A curved smith or an angled one?

It would be curved I think. The outer part of the rack is in an arch which corresponds to the pivot of the weight bar. This is the part with the pins for racking the weight wherever you need to. The interesting thing is that when squatting, it works best, for me at least, to stand with my feet somewhat forward causing me to lean backward slightly at the top of the movement. In full squat, I am bent very slightly forward at the waist as would be expected and my back is in perfect position with butt out tapping the low stool I set there to gauge how low I go.

I am out of commission for probably a month because I just had knee surgery yesterday and have been told not to bear any weight on my right leg for a month. I should be able to develop some upper body strength using these damn crutches. My arm pits are already sore. Anyway, when I get back to the gym, I will snap a photo of this equipment so you can see what it looks like....which is probably better then my description.

Our daughter called today to ask if we'd be offended if she came up from Texas to help out for the next month while I am laid up. Offended? Hardly. I paid for the plane ticket and she arrives tomorrow evening.

What a pathetic couple of old coots my wife and I are. My wife has fallen twice so far today. She cannot usually right herself when she falls, but somehow managed to do so when she fell the first time this morning. The second time though she just lay on the floor in front of me and there was no way she was going to make it upright again. I debated calling 911, but decided I would lift her up myself despite her objections. I think I managed this without putting pressure on my right leg somehow. I need to let my knee heal right because it is clear one of us has to be able bodied around here and that person is me.

Thank goodness for children who care enough to put their lives on hold for their parents.

I just read about the surgery I had last Friday. Some of the information is less than encouraging. I will have a lot of questions for the doctor when I see him on September 17.

I had coronary artery bypass surgery ten years ago, the kind where they split your breastbone to get at your heart, and then wire the bones together when they're done.  The bones are supposed to fuse after some time.

Does anyone here have information/experiences about this situation that can be shared on this thread, concerning exercises like bench presses, dips, and push-ups?  Is the healed breastbone strong enough?

Thank you.

If I were in your shoes, this is not where I would go for advice on this. You need a professional opinion and by that I mean your doctor.

It sure seems possible that the breast plate would fuse together again after some time. It might even be stronger than it was before the surgery, I don't know and neither does anyone else here probably. Once you have your doctor's consent, you will know you are good to go and that should be a comfort to you.

Obviously, exercise is good for the heart as long as your heart isn't overtaxed by it.

Cheesy...awesome jay we will have a leg duello very soon Smiley...or not Undecided

Check out this dudes thighs. He's got really short powerful legs and glutes. Not all of this muscle is from cycling. He squats with mass weights too.

I am going to buy a rack for my bicycle so I can use it as a stationary bike and then I will peddle my ass off....or back on as the case may be.

I am currently doing 10 leg raises per leg each hour I am awake and 10 leg extensions. No added weight though.

I thought I was addicted to Getbig before. Now I am spending way too much time posting here. I just hope I don't screw up and post something that starts a shit storm.

I used to take this place too seriously. I think I've gained thicker skin and learned to roll with the punches by now. This period of over exposure will be the real test.

Here's a weird thing. My knee feels so good since the surgery it is really hard to remember to stay off it and this is only day three. I hope I can do this for 30 days. I want this knee as good as new.

Thanks.  Good advice.  I do plan to ask my doctor.  I also wanted to hear about anyone who might be in the same situation.

Yeah. Ask your doctor. Although you can be sure he will err on the side of caution, but at least consult him before you give yourself a heart attack or blow out your ribcage. Cheesy
