    Just in case I bump up my bench PR somewhere between 100 000 and 150 000 pounds, I'm going to need some clarification on the weight limit here...



    Here's a quad blaster that looks pretty easy to make. Lots of different ways out there to create/replicate this movement.

    You can actually skip the pipes and just make three 4" thick boards. 17" high plates will land on boards without crushing you. You'll lie on a raised board as well.
