I recently made myself a garage gym and i have been doing good progress with my (power)lifts. But my deadlift got 45lbs weaker all of a sudden when i started lifting in my own gym.
Few weeks ago I could deadlift 330lbs x 2 easy at my local gym where the weights are iron (Weak deadlift I know). But now i could barely get 264lbs off the floor without breaking my back at my own garage gym with the rubber weight plates. And 225lbs feels ridiculously heavy.
What should i do? Should i look for a new bar and weight plates for my own gym?
