Axle Deadlifts


Recommended Posts

Had my first go at thick bar in years. Went 306x3, 326x1, 348 miss.

Hopefully the picture attached but it's a homemade axle with multiple pipes over a regular bar and the I put the collars back on. Not sure how it compares to a regular axle if it'd easier or harder. If there is a better way to do this I would love any suggestions. If anyone has a real axle I would trade or buy it as well.

As long as the pipes don't spin on the bar that's underneath, I would think this setup should work just fine. I have several homemade axles and my favorite one is just a piece of 2" CRS with some collars welded on it. I also had it ground and polished to make it extra slippery. Works great and it was CHEAP.

There is a little bit of give but it doesn't spin. It's probably close enough (10-20lb) at most and the size is similar so progress on it is progress on the real axle. It's schedule 40 fence pipe and pretty slick.
