I might get to build a home gym, or well, set up an adjustable rack with a bench and barbell. How would I best go about building a deadlift platform for indoor use, and preferrably outdoor use too.
I was thinking along the lines of building a foundation of wooden planks and fill it with a decimeter (4 inches) or so of concrete and then seal it with some more planks on top. Would this work well? I know it would be a bitch to move, but I'm guessing it'd be pretty durable. If it helps my garage floor is concrete and the weights I would be getting are not rubbered.
Also, I could use some advice on where to do dips and chins at home. I can do them in a tree but it's a bit awkward for dips.
Edit: Some tits to get your thinking started. Seems like they're shy, I'll try uploading them again later.
