These pads are seem great to use if you are doing any exercises that require you to sit on the ground or be on your knees. They are stiff and will keep you up but not too stiff. I'll keep using these and if anything goes bad I will update.
I use these for deadlifting with weights that exceed 500 lbs. Haven't had them very long but the pads are holding up so far. Almost entirely eliminates the noise, no more shaking the whole house. They work amazingly for this purpose.
"My Dead lifts in the 350's plus were getting super annoying for the basement neighbors. I bought these crash pads and problem solved, I could drop 350 from a few feet up and they could barely even hear or feel it just a few feet away.
It did however change my lift height, so I build a 5"" high platform to go between the crash pads to lift from so my range of motion stayed the same. worked a treat."
Since lockdown I started working out a lot at home, regularly using slam balls in the garage. Throwing heavy slam balls directly onto concrete made quite a bit of noise which isn’t ideal when you’ve got neighbours and an annoyed Mrs. Granted these are primarily for dropping barbells, I needed them mainly for this and they haven’t disappointed. A lot cheaper than a lot of the mainstream brands and have so far done the trick!
I use these pads in my home gym so I can drop my barbell while Olympic Weightlifting. Pretty happy with these and the price. They have kept my floor protected and dull the "clang" of the barbell drop nicely.
These work pretty dang good for doing Olympic weightlifting in my garage. Was using pillows prior and this is a huge difference lol. The carrying handle is nice, and you can stash them away in a corner
