Video: Someone has invented a very clever safety feature for the bench press

There are countless videos of weight lifting fails on YouTube, but how many of them would have been avoided with a device like this?

But on the rare occasion we use the bench, it's easy to see the dangers associated with the exercise.

One guy learned the hard way after he tired during a rep and was unable to get the weight off him, it inspired him to create the Maxx Bench which is the first ever gravity release bench press.

Take a look at the video and admit to yourself, the idea that you will embarrass yourself in the gym is no longer a valid excuse for not going...
