Also thought of just getting some tough rope and making a "rope yoke" with a BB, and hanging some plates off it. This also would be more similar to the chain yoke at the contest and if I can't hang with it I just have to lower the bar until the weights on the gound instead of trying to dump it wich is what scares me about just walking around with a loaded barbell.
