Mini Platform

Trying to clear out some wood in the garage I decided to build a mini platform, if you want to call it that. I will be able to use this for deficit deadlifts, as well as rack pulls, and squat lockouts, if I so choose. I'm sure there are other uses but that is what I can come up with right now. Though I don't actually show you how to build it, I think you can figure it out based on the video if you want to make one yourself.


HOMEMADE MINI LIFTING PLATFORM


Th construction of this thing is just basic stuff and I'm sure you need no explanation. I had four scraps of 4x4 so I took the shortest one and cut them all to that length. Then I measured my deadlift stance width and cut the 2x4 boards to make the platform wide enough for my needs. Then I screwed it all together, traced the outline of it on my scrap of plywood and cut that out and screwed it down. Nothing fancy. You can see everything you need to know in the video.

This creates a rather nasty deficit as it's over 3 inches in height. But I could always rest the loaded barbell on some plates laid flat on the floor to raise the bar up a bit.

I don't mention it in the video but I realized I could do squat lockouts with this as well. By standing on the platform I am effectively tall enough to then quarter squat without walking the bar out of the stands. In other words, squat lockouts. I'm more of a fan of heavy supports, which is to say just standing there with the heavy ass bar on your back, so I may never use this platform for squat lockouts. 

Power shrugs, as some people call them, are basically the same setup as rack pulls so this would work for them as well.

  1. Nice mini platform. Really it should be called the mini beast platform. You could probably stand on that with 800 pounds in your hands. Provided you can lift/hold 800 pounds.
    I wondered about rack pulls without the rack, problem solved.

  5. There are several factors responsible for hair loss. Green tea is one of the best herbal hair loss Follicore remedies for people who have androgenic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness. It also improves hair growth and in some instances original hair color can be regained.The action of depilatory cream can last for just a period of upto couple of weeks. Below is my review of the most popular hair loss products. In this circumstance, stimulating hair development may well be what is needed. But it is only during the puberty that the condition becomes evident.

  7. Once, when I dropped off a copy of Fred Gardner's great Journal of cannabidiol, O'Shaughnessy's, Zenista Hemp Oil Kestell was in the office and made a warm comment about the publication's Irish moniker. The company recently reported a 725% increase in quarterly revenue and is currently trading about $0.04 per share.

  8. One of my favorite ways to eat fresh papaya is to cube it and then sprinkle it with a little Red Devil sauce. HONEY - Honey has been connected with love, sex, and sexuality since the days of the Vital Khai Bible. The French lovers of days gone by would consume three courses of asparagus on the eve of their wedding.If you are a starter, begin the work out without lifts so that you get the feeling of what the work out will entail the moment you include the weights. Eat healthy foods that will increase your sperm count. Eat a well balanced diet, rich in antioxidants and vitamins and other nutrients.

  9. The partnership between these companies is a great example of businesses that are focused on providing products that promote the wellness of consumers. Presently, there are 15 states in the Pure Simple Healing Hemp Oil United States (Arizona being the latest) and other countries like Canada and Finland made the use of marijuana legal. Think of these cards like you would any other ID; they serve to allow you to prove you are a member of the program.

  10. Most of us are very concerned about our aging skin. One is to simply grab the products who advertise the most or even the most expensive ones on the theory that if something is labeled "luxury anti-aging wrinkle cream" and costs $90 or more a jar it must therefore be the most Nuallura effective. Cosmetic and surgical treatments are also helpful in rejuvenating one's skin even after the aging process has begun.

  11. My Megasize There are certain foods and herbs, which are male fertility enhancers and reduce female infertility as well. However, with ever increasing medical research it has been demonstrated that pills must be made with a substance that is akin to a type of plaster or filler material that is used to hold the pill together. It increases the quantity and quality of the fertile cervical mucus which helps the male sperm reach the female ova for fertilisation to occur.
