    so finally im gonna invest in some chains to use at my gym for christmas
    2 x 2 metre 45lb chains
    2 x 1 metre 25lb chains
    collars
    i tried a search but couldnt find anything concrete about the best start with chains
    my deadlift and squat are at 500lb plus mark at the moment
    im running a 5,3,1 routine at the moment
    so would it be best to say start with just the bar and the 45lb chains and then add weight as i go?
    any tips would be appreciated
    cheers

    so should you not use chains in a 5,3,1, routine?
    from what im getting from the article chains are mainly used for speed box squats?
    thanks for the info

    I think the most important thing When starting using chains, is that you decide on a safe word
