Well it would appear my bar could not withstand the reductions in training frequency. After the 220 c/pp, I was setting the bar down and let it drop the last 3 inches of the way to the deck. Bolt on one side snapped. No more heavy lifts. $80 bar... 6 years of abuse, I'm slightly impressed.
I think it out-performed my 1200 pound rated bar. After 3 years my bar is already going to pot.

Get some pics of that platform when you get around to building it. Want to see how you design the floor to withstand a beating.
