    hahaha

    I put the 3" pvc pipe over the handle portion of the buckets, making it very difficult to hold on to

    put weights in the buckets, carry them up & down stairs, around the house, etc.

    I'd post a pic but my camera is in houston with my gf

    You don't really need plans as they are not exactly sophisticated equipment. Just look at some that youy can buy and copy them, when I get around to it I can take pictures and write a description of everything.

    Weld free version, the nice parft about this stye is you can have interchangable handles with different sizes. What I planned on doing is insted of the "allthread" cut another piece of pipe, fish-mouth it and weld in place.

    question is, where can i get weight for cheap? >200lbs on each side is going to cost quite a bit

    haha, I started doing grip work cause to increase my deadlift and it turns out I really enjoy doing it. Odd shit like this, stones and various strongman style lifts are a shit ton more fun then weights.
