    Lol. True. I remember that from my days at Lowe's. Knots can be dealt with, it's wane and twist and bow and stuff. But, I digress.

    You definitely know what is up! Proper squat mechanics with KB squats are one of my pre-requisites with some of my younger (and even older but less kinesthetically aware) clients.

    So since I couldn't get the platform stuff from HD, I grabbed most of the stuff to make DL blocks.

    Here's what I used;
    (2) 2x6x8
    (1) chunk of cull 1/2" plywood.
    3" Deckmate Screws
    Construction adhesive
    Cost: $19.97

    I cut the 2x6's as follows-
    1 I cut into 4 24" sections
    1 I cut into 8 12" sections

    I cut the plywood into 2 12"x24" pieces

    Laid the plywood down, put the 2 24" pieces on top of it, put 4 12" pieces on top of that, perpendicular to the 24"ers. Screwed it all together.

    TSC was closed, so I couldn't get the matting, but I'll cover both sides with 1/4" mat, and that'll put the blocks @ 4".

    Side/end



    Bottom



    Side



    Top with me on it obviously



    The pair.

    Very nice. What do you usually stand on for those? Or did I miss the point and those are going to be for block pulls?

    DUH. You say what they're for at the top. My reading comprehension < a five year old's reading comprehension

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA! It's Sunday, the expectations in here are low.

    I expect them for block pulls, yes, but if I want to do crazy deficit pulls they'll work for that as well.

    I still have a chunk of the plywood-tomorrow maybe I'll scoop up another 2x6 and build 2" platforms for deficit pulling.

    I'm about to reduce or cut the conditioning for now.

    My hips have been really bothering me the last few days, and I don't seem to be recovering as well as I was when I began the Cube. I stay sore just a bit too long, and I'm just kind of dragging ass right now. Might also be a factor in my ****ty focus as well.

    Booooo.

    So dumb question, but how do you plan to do the 2" platforms? Would they absorb the strength of dropping weight on them like the 4" blocks? I ask because I sometimes pull off a 2" and would like to build blocks for this (as opposed to using mats in my gym, which usually get destroyed not by smashing the weights but by the weights rolling around and clanging against each other).
