No problem, Pat.

The trick I figured out was eyeballing the posts in the buckets, tying them against my dip bar, and then going in with a level to make the fine adjustments - made it super easy. I didn't think about the cement cracking. It's been approx 48 hours and I don't see any yet. Tomorrow morning is the test run.

How much cement mix do you really need to make these squat stands? Is it really 60ibs like you describe on your blog Patrick (Donnelly)? How much does it cost? I have no experience with this kind of thing so excuse my ignorance.

60lbs of concrete does the trick. It's dirt cheap and works like a charm.
