The PR2 (Band Deadlifts Platform)

Looks great.

Looks great.

The PR2 is a purpose-built Band Deadlift Platform, small enough to be portable and solid enough to cope with some insanely heavy pulls. Adjustable, designed to cope with both Standard & Reverse Band Deadlifts.

NB : I must admit, my own setup is very much like the DIY one shown in the video; but a dedicated platform like this certainly has its advantages. Ever tried one?

NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

We also discuss a number of training-related books. If you're looking for the full list of the ones I recommend personally, swing by Goodreads. Great site.
