Please forgive me if this question's been asked before, but is it OK to drop bumper plates directly onto a concrete floor with a bit of carpet on top? or do I need a platform? or some rubber mats?
Obviously after forking out for them I don't want to ruin them, but also I don't want to have to spend even more money on a platform if I can avoid it. Also headroom is a little tight.
Opinions please guys.
Thanks for your time.
