I had planned to do deadlifts today, but I just can't find the motivation to pull knowing that my new bar is coming. So instead I decided to do some speed squats and try my new chains out. I liked the chains alright, but there just weren't enough of them. No worries though, after a couple sets I had a breakthrough. I can't afford any more chains, but I figured out that I can hook up plates to the chains in such a manner that the plates go down to the ground halfway through the lift. This worked REALLY well, which gets me super excited.
I think these chains are going to take my squatting to a whole new level. 405 will be mine even quicker now!
Speed box squats (all + numbers are chain weights)-
You'll see the plates hanging among the chains in the video. Theoretically you could do the same thing with a single chain and hang multiple plates you already have down the length of the chain, as long as you don't mind the noise. I'm surprised I haven't seen this before, considering how expensive chains are.
Sky's the limit now! New bar, slingshot, and knee wraps coming soon!
