    Walkout for squatters under 100kg
    Monolifts for fat bastards

    Monolift
    Pros:

    Safety
    you can have safety chains or bands to catch the weight
    No walking with the weight so less chance of knee or hip injury
    Easier to lift heavy weights as no energy leakage from walk out

    Cons
    You need another lifter to operate the lever
    They cost a shit load of money
    Its easier to lift the same weight as a walkout

    Walkout
    Pros:
    Cheaper rig to buy
    IPF requires walkout on all squats so "train like you compete"

    Cons
    Its harder. More energy required to get to the squat position
    More chance of injury.
