    Nice work! I’m not surprised on the squat lockout at all. When we did it here, we destroyed an Olympic bar, it bent badly (cheap bar anyway), Nick and my son Sean both did 1000# and stopped because the bar was full so the Yoke is a great idea.

    Thanks Chris. I do recall that image you of you rolling the destroyed bar back and forth on the rack. That is what flashed through my head with those last few plates. I decided that I didn’t feel like buying a new bar this week. If I did, I’d rather buy one that could take the strain then take it home with me. I think a yoke should workout out, it has the strength and in the event of failure, it should be immune to damage.
