My gym never had those Spring Collars.

I think If I ever went back there, I'd stick a pair in my Gym Bag for my own Use.

At least that wouldn't mar the 225; 315; 405, 595 and 685 Progression that seems so Important in my Mind—since they weigh next to nothing, while regular collars add 5 Pounds per side.

{365–3 45's and a 25 on each side and 455 Are also important Landmarks to many...}

{I go over Past and either Predicted or Hoped for Poundages and Reps all day long, almost every day...

Not to the exclusion of other thingsbut it continually reoccurs throughout the day.}

I was just curious how many were forced—by Gym Rules—to use Collars Against their Will and Better Judgement...

Many Folks tell me that I'm Probably a High Functioning Asperger—or at least have many of the Characteristics—and things like a New Collar Rule at the Gym still make me mad enough to grind my teeth in rage, 30 some-odd years later...

Actually, I went by that Gym's Website—wanting to relive some Good Ole Days—and that Same Hated Sign was Prominently featured in a Couple Album Photos...

Getting my Flashbacks in full-drive once more over a long-ago Perceived Injustice.

Certainly, it is Possible—And I will gladly Accept the Risk, whatever it may be, given the freedom to choose.

I have seen that happen. The plates slid off and landed on the toe of another person standing by the side.

Remember that collars don't just protect the person using the weigths, they also provide safety for nearby lifters, most of which would be highly unimpressed having self-unloading plates heading their way, if they were stood next to an idiot or next to someone who had lost the balance of their lift...similar to the squat vid posted above.
