Instructions before acquiring a lifting platform
To swap out discs or to leave the lifting platform walk around the bar. Do not straddle the bar to takeoff weight. When you begin and when you finish with your lift, walk off the platform to the sides, never walking forward or backwards over or across the bar. Wear proper weightlifting shoes and clothing. Even though you may not be competing, it is important to address the bar as you dress for the sport. Clothes should always be close-fitting, collar-less, and should not cover up the elbows or the knees
