powerlifter guy had me overload the bar (+100lb) during bench press and do 20sec static holds with elbows slightly unlocked and then a very slow negative on the way down. my back is all kinds of sore 2 days later.

Anyone know a good place to get fractional plates that ships to canada?
post #33663 of 57263
No, but can proxy them if you need to source from US.

ironwoody sells them for a decent price, half of what most other retails would. i shipped mine to the usa and picked them up at a shipping depot.

roguefitness is also clearing out their adidas powerlifts for 70 bux

Any advantage here over barefoot?

I tried to buy a mini deadlift jack ($65) but shipping was $28... when I asked about cheaper shipping, the guy told me how amazing it was that they could ship it across the country for only $28 AND I could even track it... fuck that. Coldnsap, you ever in Cary? mwink[1].gif

Charly, you ever come across the old york split sleeve bars for sale? None out this way frown.gif

You should get those powerlifts. Yea, I'm competing in Cary at that West Cary Barbell and go there to eat sometimes.

What's the advantage though? Slight heel lift?

Tried box squats this morning. Felt easier than normal squats, is that usual? I do need to build a real box though, my bench at 17" is a couple inches too high.

Just a vintage barbell by york.

Vsli that prob could fit into a flat rate box and I don't think he would charge me tax. He's a cool guy. My gym has like 30 of those York split sleeves they are all brown and rusted haha. Crappy bars imo, too thin.

Got a great deal on that from Scott smile.gif

Don't know what's next. I was thinking about a swiss bar actually, something like this: http://www.blackwidowtg.com/Swiss_Bar_Football_Bar_p/bar-swiss.htm

What you think? I was also planning on getting a squat bar some time down the road (30mm, not a ssb... but one of those couldn't hurt), deadlift bar never crossed my mind.
