I just bought a 300# olympic barbell set today. I plan on practicing some of the lifts Im less familar with tomorrow and starting WODs on Sunday.

After picking it up I went to the local ranch supply and feed store to get mats, unfortunatly, they currently dont have any and will be out until late next week.

Any ideas on what I can use until then? I doubt Ill be lifting to much to worry about it until after I get the mats, but still better safe than sorry.

Plywood works. That is what lifting platforms are made from. Even if it just a couple small peices that the weights drop on to, it will help prevent damage to the floor.

^Being that I cannot afford $200 to mat my setup right now I am going to go this route provided that I find a way to drag the 4'x8' home. Any suggestions on the required thickness - I am guessing the thicker the better. Also, how does particle board hold up compared to plywood for this application?
