Freemotion machine not good for head!
Beware! I was working out with this Freemotion Cable Cross machine when one of the rotating arms failed and struck me directly on the top of my head. This resulted in a large gash (11 stitches) and a concussion. I had 150 lbs on it and was doing tricep pull downs and had done a full set of 15 reps. When I got to the 3rd rep of my second set, the arm failed and like a giant tomahawk swung down with full force splitting my head open like a ripe melon. I really feel fortunate to be alive.
