Is there a better way to have made this?
I think I did pretty good, seeing as how it's lasted 2 years.

splurging on an olympic bar and cross supports so that you don't crush your throat or crack your sternum/ribs.

>Is there a better way to have made this?

Yes. That's third world shit tier at it's finest. Literally balancing heavy weight over your neck with rusty steel pipe which isn't suitable structural at all. Please proceed and remove yourself from this planet before you reproduce.

Take this over to /fit/. They'll sperg out all over it.

What kind of nigger-tier bullshit is this?

You actually trusted this pile of shit to hold weights over your head for two years? You didn't even push it out from the wall enough to allow someone to stand behind it and spot you, you retard.

Not bad, but I would have used galvanized pipe or at least painted it. Not a fan of the rusty bar.

Yes, you should have made a power rack so you didn't die
>>
>>1239480
I dunno man they sell empty ones at canadian tire for like 10 bucks each and you can just fill them with sand or water, which are free

concrete costs probably more than 10 bucks a bucket

but then again im canadian and a city dweller so everything construction related is bonkers expensive

>10 bucks a bucket
Literally paying for something you can find in nature for free

>>1239545
80lb of concrete mix is about $4 USD locally.
>>
>>1236723
like others have said, you need stable safeties. it's possible to dump the plates off when you don't use collars, but it's a fucking mess.

the biggest problem is it's too fucking wide, limiting how many plates you can load on. in addition to safeties (simple sawhorses may work here), another set of J-hooks may come in handy if you can't lock out the bar. put another set of hooks up higher so that you can squat under the bar (bench moved), or rack the bar on your shoulders for military presses (not that clean and press is bad, but may limit your pressing weight at some point). if you decide on a power rack design like below, make sure it's tall enough so that you can press inside of it while standing with the bar fully overhead.

>>1240368
I was talking about sand. I'm not sure what post I was trying to quote back to.
>>
>>1239473

Just made them out of some buckets, pipe and concrete I had lying around. You can buy a bag of cement for 20 euros and probably make enough weights for 10 gyms.
There are measured out so its just like the real thing.

thats pretty clever actually
meanwhile i paid a shitload for actual ironplates.
but i guess it takes away less space, which is important for me, since I use the plates on dumbbells aswell
