    Thanks everyone. I got in touch with Tone Barbaccio and he gave me some good advice. And yes, it looks like I'm going to gas out for a few weeks unless I take 10 minute breaks between sets. Sounds...

    I just got the blue one, only used it twice. But I'd guess it gives me around 40lbs. I noticed if it's not set up properly my left shoulder twists really uncomfortably. I'm going to use it on heavy...
