    I know exactly how you feel. I can barely get my left arm on there and have to have my aems spread out almost to the caddys. Cant grip it traditionally.

    Re: 545 machine squat

    awesome Never seen anyone use that before, I know my gym doesn't even have one. I also have issues with my shoulders holding the free bar, I just try to do legs a few days after shoulders but once in a while that still isn't good enough and I can't do them.

    I'm in the same boat but pre surgery but if you get a Safety Squat Bar you can free squat again I just got one!

    I borrowed one from a friend to decide between the 2 and the Top Squat is very unstable!

    I walk mine in and out with a heavy bag in my other hand, I support the bar on my shoulder and walk it.

    I will not donate a piece of equipment like that!
