Who uses a Lifting Platform?
A lifting platform is a key piece of gym equipment for serious weightlifters, crossfitters and heavy deadlifters who require additional protection for their flooring and equipment such as weight plates and bumper plates. Platforms are used for competitive and professional weightlifters and powerlifters who benefit from a dedicated station where they can practice and prepare themselves for competitions and events.
What are the main benefits of using a Lifting Platform?
There are a number of benefits of a gym platform when weightlifting. Platforms create dedicated zones in a gym which separate it from other activities making the use of heavy equipment such as weight plates, barbells and gym racks much more compact and safe. It gives lifters the adequate space to perform lifts safely and without distraction.
The non-slip surface and protective rubber flooring pads mean weight drops will not cause slips, accidents or damage to gym equipment or the flooring below. Similarly, the durable surface can withstand repetitive impact and the toughtest of workouts, with a lifespan of 15 years +.
Gym flooring is often used throughtout a gym, with platforms for additional protection and noise reduction. The extra layer reduces noise and vibration from weights being dropped to the ground.
Having a platform stand to master your form and footwork is the best way to elevate your technique and develop proper skilled olympic lifting. The standard sizes available help you to measure your stance, perfect your position and take your performance to the next level.
A lifting platform can be customised to include a brand logo or club colours and are available in various designs to suit your personal tastes. Professional and aesthetic, a platform solution will finish off any home gym or commercial space to perfection.
Gym platforms are a valuable piece of kit that can be easily assembled. Plus they serve as a good anchor for gym rigs. If you don't want to nail your rack to the floor, a power rack can be nailed directly to your platform creating the ideal lifting set-up that is stable and fully supported.
