Use a pair of gel based knee pads... Or even knee rollers.Yes to both.
No major issues with the install, but I'm not used to that type of work, so my lower back and knees are shot.
I try not to leave any reps in the tank, but with someone screaming in my ear I'd maybe get 1 more. Every once in awhile I'll actually fail a rep. I try not to do sloppy reps either, but I'm OK if form gets a little loose the last couple of reps, if it's safe.How close to failure are you going on all your sets?
It does jam up into your bottom ribs, but I guess that's better than compressing your chest where you can't breathe.Nice to see another gym still have that classic Icarian piece. My only issue with it is the positioning of the pad being too low, damn near makes me nauseous sometimes.
Also, that's a lot of weight for those Matrix machines.
