    In the current climate: yes
    Originally: accommodating resistance. Deals with the strength curve and applying force to the lift through lockout

    Speaking of current climate...

    Easiest way to add band points if I did a DIY platform?

    If I go this route I’ll probably run some kind of eyelet through the platform. I have nightmares of bands snapping me in the dick or face or both.

    You could bolt hooks to it too.

    Adds progressively more resistance throughout the movement to where it's providing the most resistance at top of the lift/full muscle contraction

    You can stand on one band and loop it over the bar. Does that make sense?

    I’ve used bands a few times and was definitely cautious about getting popped, but the visual of seeing it happen to someone else sounds hilarious. Like an unsuspecting person getting hit in the head with a basketball or something.

    Not going to lie. I'd prob invest another grand over night if I won that set. I'd completely rejoin the Home Gym Master Race. First thing I'd do (if I don't drown in the future economy) is buy a house and build a sauna next to my gym set up.

    as someone who knows nothing about the garage gym game, are rep fitness’ weights any good? Looking at the rubber coated olympic plates to pair with titan dumbbells and bar.

    I haven’t used those specific plates, but they make really good stuff. Which bar are you going with from Titan?

    I don't have the plates but I have their adjustable bench, kettlebells and weight storage and all of them have been really solid so far

    ok cool, figured I might as well jump on it since they ship by mid month and everywhere else I have seen is sold out.

    I got the 86” Olympic bar second hand. Figured I can resell it down the line if I want something nice and start to build out the home stuff.

    Woke up at 1am, legs all cramped from 1,000 reps of 45# 20” step ups. I need to lift something heavy, this has gotten old way faster than I’d thought.

    Spent two hours reading hensleya ’s backlog of bar and plate reviews. (Also mentally spent about $2,000.)

    • new Sorinex Off Grid rack w/ plastic (free from the ‘gram)
    • Rogue SS OPB
    • Hi-Temp bumpers from somebody whenever they’re in stock
    • time to build my platform

    I have no clue, but didn’t really have the option of being picky with everything sold out. Figured I could resell it when all this is over if I wanted to recoup some of the cost.

    I’ve ordered some strongman stuff and a cambered bar from Titan that’s been pretty good. A friend of mine has a rack and a bench from Titan and it will definitely get the job done for a home gym.
