    We used one 3 foot long board as the base and permanently attached a second 18" board to make it a 2 board. Then we made two additional pieces that are able to come off so it's a 2,3, and 4 board all in one. I didn't want to carry extra shit so this seemed like the best option. The 3rd and 4th board are held in with dowels that are glued into the holes.

    :bowdown: I'm going to try to work out with some people up at school that have a gym in their garage. They've got a monolift and some other good stuff.

    This might sound like a stupid question. But how thick is each individual board? :hs:

    My school gym has a monolift, chalk boxes, deadlift platform, bumper plates, squat boxes, etc so I really don't have to bring anything except my own boards :p

    Having not lifted for the past 3+ weeks, I don't think I am ready to compete this month :( Need to re-evaluate what i'm doing right and wrong, and the normal school gym is a pretty shitty environment to lift in.
