    It’s not perfect by any means, but it’s a useful tool.

    If you’re just looking for tracking workouts (not generating them), then I’d say Strong is a much better app. But with a few tweaks, FitBod...

    Just a heads up - I managed to (barely) get the FT2 assembled by myself, but a helping hand would really have cut down on the time and difficulty. I guess it’ll be the same for the FTX - though you...

    I use them to reduce the quantity of plates I have to load on some lifts (does not to any real degree reduce the amount I can load on the bar or hurt said bar - I don’t deadlift over 200kg), but I do...

    Dunno if this was mentioned earlier in the thread, but looks like someone was listening - Rep is planning to start shipping to Europe (and Canada) in 2021.

    Denmark, actually - I moved 2 years ago and can’t figure out how to change the profile info here.

    I do, but the flooring is 6m thick, so I’d need to stack about 5 pieces together to get it at the height of the deadeners, so I’d go with the plywood route, I think.

    You’re right about the...

    Personally, I’d probably just leave it, also to prevent drainage concerns in the future.

    Portable deadlift platform?

    Hey y’all

    So my gym is largely kitted out, and I’m looking at details now. One thing that comes to mind is possible having a custom, portable deadlift platform crafted, and I’d like to get your...
