I just moved into a new apartment and I don’t want to destroy the carpet and concrete under it with heavy deadlifting. I’m also looking for something to decrease the noise of the plates hitting the floor some I’m looking to build a platform.
I’m actually not looking to build a full platform, I’m really looking to just build two panels more or less that go on both sides of my power rack. I’d just raise my power rack support bars out of the way and do all my pulling in the rack. I’ll throw another piece of wood in the middle of the rack to stand on so I’m not technically “pulling off blocks”.
Anyone have suggestions on the types of wood or matting to be used for such a thing?
