    Anyone else do rack pulls from the pins instead of the safeties?

    I've been doing it like this mainly because
    1) small target to put it down
    2) can't let the bar drift, must keep vertical path
    Basically for form. Am I off base or what you strong people think?

    I've done it before in a pinch, but the safeties are safer in my opinion. If you miss the J-hook you're gonna have problems. I definitely see your point in regards to higher technical demands, so I suppose the question becomes, are you mainly using them to build muscle or build technique? The answer to that question will dictate which one you should use.

    Yes,never tried them on safety arms.
    The rack pull off pins seem more logical if you can.
