One more thing to consider is the length of your chains and how you're fitting them to the bar. Are they long enough to deload on the floor or are they so long that they'll not actually overload that much?

Again I don't have the answers unfortunately. Just things to consider.

Seriously though, just talked to my father-in-law. He has chains lying around somewhere on the old orchard.

If not I will hand 10 water bottles from each side and start a new trend.

Using an approx. 2-3ft length of smaller chain (say 1/2") from the bar as an adjustable attachment should solve the load/deload issue.

There's some interesting info here which may help a little plus it shows a manner in which to put the chain around the barbell:

One suggestion would be to check with your local scrap yard, if you have any in your area.

They will usually give you a good deal on chains, if you do not care if they are in perfect shape. I know some people who have had success with this and others that can not find any. But it may be worth a phone call.

Made some ghetto chains last night out of aerobic bands and it gave me an idea. I am going to user smaller chains and a couple of (smaller) backpacks loaded with stones. I might do a couple (or three) back packs on each side with about 8 inches of separation so the unload is more gradual.

Still thinking this through, but the cost for all this would be minimal.

One of the issues I am struggling with is the top end weight versus the bottom end weight. It would be easy to unload 300 at the bottom, but I am wondering what a good balance would be.

I need supra-maximal weight on my back, so it would make sense to have a big unload in the hole. But the question becomes...is training heavy lockouts worth it?

I am about to find out.

With heavy pulls and posterior chain work as well, you should be golden.

Falling asleep I had this master plan of using 3 smaller chains with backpacks on each side, at staggered heights. Each 3 week cycle I would move one back pack up a link, so over time the deload is gradually lessened. It would be like an Anderson squat progression is a way.

Hard to explain, but I am itching to try this.
