I found this to be an excellent video on building an Olympic lifting platform. I followed it pretty closely, with just a few minor adjustments, and got a great outcome. If you’re looking to build your own platform, check out this link.
I'm in the process of transitioning out of the Army, having served for the past 13 years. I'm currently studying an MBA, and exploring options for the next phase of life. I have an interest in vintage cars, and tinkering in general, but frustratingly have always lacked workshop space in the past. My family and I have recently moved into a new house, where I have built a large shed that will become my man cave. This blog is designed to detail the evolution of the man cave, and some of the projects that go on in it along the way.
