Re: DIY Bar Holder

I like the plans posted by Paul Findley a while back. The construction is very precise and rock solid. I would have preferred some sort of along-the-wall storage, like you have, but I couldn't screw anything into the wall.

Re: DIY Bar Holder

Yes, but with weightlifting bars you don't want to store them vertical. Glenn Pedlay responded to one of my threads earlier and he recommmended against storing them that way, due to oil pooling in the bottom and whenever you would like to use it, the sleeves would take a while to be fully lubricated when returned to the horizontal position.

Tony, by the way this is HK79 from BB.com.

Re: DIY Bar Holder

Hi Ardi. Crupiea here.

Thats why I have the empty space there, I used to put my pendlay bar there but after I read that thing from Glenn I just keep it on the rack. These are my other cheapos.

Re: DIY Bar Holder

I'm planning to get a PL bar also, but money is tight now, so the HD will do just fine even for heavy weights.

Funny. I heard the exact same thing earlier this morning at Potomac CrossFit while at a USAW coaching certification. Do you have a link to that post?


I once left my Pendlay Economy bar in storage for about three months straight, leaned up against a wall, and when I finally came back for it, it did have a bit of oil leaking out of the top collar, but it wasn't very much, given the length of time. I'm wondering if it really matters all that much if the bars are still getting taken out of the rack on a near daily basis.
