These buckets have held over 400 pounds without cracking or bending or giving at all. I have dropped heavy cleans, snatches, and high pulls on these buckets for a long time, and they barely even have any scratches or marks. They work very well! Plus buckets are obviously very very cheap. [/quote]
Thanks. I am sold.[/quote]
At howie’s suggestion, I bought buckets for the same reason.
My generic 5 gallon buckets have bent a bit where I brought the weights down and hit the front edge of them. Not really a big deal, since any dents pop back out, and you can also just restack with a new set of buckets on top.
And yes, they’re very very cheap if you need to replace them… $2-3 at most places.
