German term or phrase: Notablage
Gute Erfahrungen werden mit dem Material Stahl gemacht, da dieses besonders robust und belastbar ist. Eine Pulverbeschichtung ist besonders haltbar, wenn sie elektrostatisch aufgebracht wird und zerkratzt nicht so leicht. Gerade die Ständer für Langhanteln müssen unbedingt stabil sein, dürfen nicht wackeln oder eine Kippgefahr bergen und sollten, um eine größtmögliche Sicherheit zu gewährleisten auch eine sogenannte*** Notablage*** aufweisen. Diese ***Notablage*** oder Sicherheitsablage ist meist eine weiter unten zusätzlich angebrachte Ablage, auf der das Gewicht im Falle eines nicht sauber auszuführenden Bewegungsablaufes platziert werden kann.

Spotter arms
Explanation:
These are the metal "arms" on e.g. squat racks, power cages and bench press stations that keep the barbell from crushing or otherwise injuring the lifter if he/she fails the lift. Also referred to as "safety pins", "safety bars" or just "safeties" in the parlance of gym-goers.
