    + my bendy old 1" barbell, some rusty plates and rusty dumbells. And a home made bench that's getting a little tippy...

    I prefer bulgarian knee pops for warm ups, and can confirm rubber knee mats fell much better.
    The pain from repeatedly landing on my knees on wood is (almost) unbearable.

    First off, I think your plan of just covering the whole thing with stall mats is solid. Go for it!

    I always like to add my 2 cents whenever lifting platforms come up. I did mainly Olympic Lifting...

    Short version answers, see attached.
    1. Yes, you stand on the platform (but can do other hack squat type movements too, with feet outside the platform)
    2. You use the bench that comes with it. Sit...

    Yellow says construction zone. along with black (which this machine has) yellow and black stripes mean "danger". Also bees, which can sting. There is something about warm...

    "So many" don't swear by the Gorilla Bow. That's just effective marketing. There's nothing wrong with it, but personally I found having a goal and progressively increasing your weights, via lifting...

    I wouldn't drop the weights, but floors/rafters etc. are made for 1000s of lbs. of weight (like a bathtub filled with water and a human, more weight than you think!).

    I would def. put rubber mats...

    What Dad said above is true re: equipment.

    Not sure if joking.

    Now is the best time to get in shape, especially if you're working from home. I've been able to focus on fitness more, and I'm sure there's millions like me. I happened to have...

    Short answer: July 2021 is my vote. Fingers crossed.

    Long answer: I'm hoping the virus starts to get under control by Summer 2021. Whenever the "second wave" starts (this Fall 2020? Later?) it...

    I wouldn't do the "transversal" option.

    Just bolt it into the big support beam with the included lag screws and you'll be golden. Support beams, lag screws and pull up bars are engineered so that...

    Well done getting back to it! I know it's hard during these weird times.

    I would try just squat stands with spotter bars as an option:

    In my experience with owners putting down laminate, they really don't care, and it's super cheap anyway. Laminate is really just a garbage, disposable protector for the floor, or put there to hide...

    I enjoy sometimes going against what everyone else says. One great example is the 4' wide "insert" on a weightlifting platform. EVERYONE says go 4' wide, but I did research, especially European...

    I did exactly this: I bolted my power rack through 3/4" rubber, then into the concrete floor. I never saw any compression over 10 years. The noise will be the same regardless; concrete or rubber. You...
