How To Build A DIY Deadlift / Weightlifting Platform

Because sometimes pulling plastics isnt enough and we want to pull on something harder, steel to be precise.  If you aren’t incorporating any barbell movements into you training for climbing you probably should be because there are a whole range of benefits to barbell training that can help you out with your climbing.  Anyway this isn’t a post for preaching the barbell gospel (there will be another one for that) this is just here to help you out with putting together some equipment for your home gym.

Hopefully it helps you out
