    Far more than I can handle.

    My friend has an axle made with the same pipe. He has put 400 on it, pressed it overhead and dumped it from above and it did not bend the bar at all. We also put it on a rack and loaded plates on it till we ran out of room. We had 980lbs with 4 100lbs plates and 2 45lbs plates on each side.

    Damn awesome. Thanks dude

  7. me and a buddy, also did a home depot project. using their buckets we filled them with cement with piping and used thick PVC piping to go around to thicken the grip. when it was all said and done, I believe each bucket weighed 80 lbs.

    can you add weight?

    i remember starting to do farmers and i thought 90lbs was going to kill me. now i have to double that to feel like i worked and have picked up to 260 a hand and done 240 for 40 ft. some of my training partners break 300/hand.

  9. I walked past some sand bags at work today and could not resist trying my first farmer's walk. I will definitely be doing more!

    Tonight, I saw some DIY plans being sold on eBay for about $7. I didn't buy them or I would share, but the seem to have good feedback.
