    floor mats


    Anyone know where to get decent price floor mats? I am destroying the garage floor at my house from deadlifting. I found some floor mats but they are 80-100 which is more than i paid for my olympic weight set, which is rediculous. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    I don't know how durable/heavy-duty they are, but Walmart sells a pack of 6 2'X2', puzzle piece mats in their exercise equipment area (they're online too). They claim "Easy to clean and composed of anti-fatigue foam for lasting durability, these six lightweight, no slip, waterproof floor mats cover up to 24 square feet. Great for creating a protective floor covering for weights, mini-gyms, treadmills, dance activities, pilates, yoga, general fitness and more."
    And they're only $17.76, so even if they wear out in a year or so, they'd be cheap to replace. Might be worth a look.

    You can find them at equestrian supply shops if you have one close to where you live. They are used as flooring in barns.

    too bad I would have to go out and get some of those little pink dumbells so you could keep up. Remember "its not the kind of car you're driving, its the size of the arm hanging out the window!" Good luck with the finals bro.
