    I didn't know what Hokas are, so I looked them up. They seem to be just about as far away from minimalist as you can go.

    FWIW, I tried a pair of Altra Lone Peaks. They bill these as having...

    Yes, with the right kind of platform.



    Yes, the noise from the plates rattling on the bar. The collars won't help with noise from impact. (But, hopefully, the platform will.)

    Minimalist shoes require a period of adaptation, by you and your feet, in order to get comfortable with the new shoes. Not only will you need to change your gait, but your feet will need to become...

    It's good that you've figured out some workarounds.

    Another, related, problem is racks that have a lower crossmember that's too close to the rear uprights. If this crossmember doesn't provide...

    I ended up going back to the white background. The lack of links was just one reason. It turns out that I also like light colored backgrounds - I know that's not everyone's preference.

    The bar path for most lifts (including squat, deadlift, bench press, press) should be pretty much vertical. That being the case, you don't need much space between the front and rear uprights to...
