Am I going to destroy my BFS bumpers using them on cement? I try not to dump too often, but horse stall mats are not an option at the moment (Fiance won't let me leave them on the ground in the backyard if I had them).

Cool, I had to dump a couple of times during the snatch WOD yesturday. It is nice to not have to worry.

Jeremy,

You might try tidying the horse stall mats away after use - or is that too much effort? :wink:

Not as much effort - just nowhere to put them.

Thanks for the replies though!

I'm having to get more and more comfortable with the idea of dumping my bumpers on the concrete too, Jeremy. I laid some cardboard underneath both sides, just so that I don't scratch them too much.

As I increase the weight, especially for max C&J days, I find that I have to dump the weight to protect myself. I follow the weight down and don't let it completely free-fall, but I've not damaged bumpers or concrete yet.

You may want to go to a carpet store and buy some "remnants", which are left-over pieces of carpet of various sizes, types, thicknesses,etc. You can usually get some for cheap.

Dumpster dive! :proud:
I acquired an entire weight set that way. Just one of them old kid's sets, 1" bar with the plastic coated cement weights. I keep and use it out in the woods. Out there I can get away with thruster tossing it, (thruster, toss, duckwalk to bar, deadlift, lather, rinse, repeat for fifty yards and back...killer!).

We used to dumpster dive at bakeries and, believe it or not, got some tasty snacks that way.


My band was on tour and we didn't have any money, give me a break.
