Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Craigslist Thread (Round 3)

The last thread got up over 10,000 posts with too many people asking if they should pick up the bowflex down the street, so it's time to start a new one. Let's all keep our eyes open for the shake weights for .20/lb, strap on our Chucks, and speed away on our unicycles for those sweet pick ups....

Well I am attempting to make some concrete weights. I tried to make one last week and I think I didn't use enough water. Tried again today. Will see how they turn out after I pop them out Thursday. They should weight about 10 pounds each.

Should I buy adidas power lift 2.0?

I currently use a pair of running shoes (nike roshe) to squat in. They do feel unstable, so i was thinking about buying the power lift 2.0. Or should i just use a pair of flat skate shoes ( like the Nike Janoski) and remove the sole? I squat high bar and my stance is about shoulder width.

Taper belt for deadlift?

How many change plates are "safe" for dead lifts

Let's say, hypothetically speaking, that one had only 160# of bumpers (205 pound loaded) and wanted to deadlift 255. Is ok to use 25 pounds of change plates per side. The bar would not be dropped but would be set down a bit harder than a lower weight would be. The rippetoe video about crying...

Best deadlift belt?

I have a single-prong Athlete belt from Best Belts, which is 4" tall and 9-10mm thick. It's really great for squat, but I noticed that it might be a little too tall for deadlift, especially for conventional deadlift. Then, I came across this Greg Nuckols' article, which suggested that the 4" may...
