I kinda came up with a way to make a log in the gym today. I'll describe how to make it. You will need. One (1) safety pin from a squat rack. Two (2) standard sized screwable collars. Many (N) 25 or 35 pound plates. How to make: Slide one of the collars down the safety pin so it's about 1/3 from the far end and tighten it. Slide as many plates as you want onto the bar so that they are touching the collar and each other. Slide the other collar down next to the weights and tighten it. Voila. What to do: Grap it with one hand on either side of the weights/collars, clean it up to your shoulders, and press it above your head. Pros: Simulates the change in centre of gravity of a log press compared to a bar. Cheap as free. The plates kind of wobble so there's a stability factor. Cons: Doesn't have the same neutral hand positioning of a competition log press. Can only load so much weight. Alternatives: You can take the sleeve off a barbell with an allen key and do the same thing using regular collars, and you can hold the ends of the sleeve with a neutral grip.
