Re: Looking for Bumper Plates

Katherine,

Ahhha, great point. Now there's a real reason to use bumpers, that occasion when you just can't control the weight. Not every time a set is completed.
Just a pet peeve of an old...

Re: Smallest possible mats/platform for dropping weights for DLs

Cut a 4'x6'x1/2" rubber slab in half. Cheap touch down area.
Use a 1/2' thick ply wood insert to even it all out.
Easy to pick up and store against the wall if space is an issue.
Good luck.

Re: Different types of bands

Can't go wrong with the JumpStretch or Woody Bands.

Re: Online facility planning tool

Mark,
For the platforms, go to the generic tab, select patio then patio furniture and
use the occassional table icon with the dimensions you need for your platform.
Should work just fine.
