Re: garage equipment

Here's how I look at weights:

All zorks are quorks, but not all quorks are zorks... In other words, you can bench bumper plates, but you can't drop steel. At some point, you'll want bumpers, so might as well start with them.

If your "MMA mats" were thick enough to protect a dropped bar, then they wouldn't be very appropriate to stand on for lifting (too much squish, not a solid enough foundation).
