Week 3 Day 3
255-1 add belt
Ring leg raise
We trained at home again. It’s nice to have our own stuff to use.
I’ve been moving along on my deadlift jack. I was at the point at which I just had to add the sleeve for the handle. The handle will be in two pieces so it’s easier to store. The welded piece is a metal sleeve and a 3’ length of rebar just slides in as a lever. It can pull in and out so it’s not a weird shape. That’s something I’ve noticed about most jacks is storage issues. Anyway, we were testing the height and it’s too high. The higher you have to jack the bar, the longer the handle needed and the more weight you have to move. That’s something I don’t like about one of the small rogue jacks. Now I have to cut the legs off the bottom. If I put them on the end of the cross piece rather than the bottom, the height should be good. All you really need is to move the bar marginally off the floor so there’s enough room to slide a plate on. The challenge will be cutting through the welds without removing too much. I have a couple of cutting blades but my skill… Who knows. If it doesn’t work like that, I’ll grind the legs shorter and put them back on the bottom. For ugly looking welds, they’re fairly strong. I went to Princess Auto today and bought a pack of flap discs. I also finally got a fire extinguisher
