    In a word... Yes.

    All proper lifts are done with an olympic bar, which weighs 20kg. So, when I say I can deadlift 200kg, there is actually 180kg of weight on the bar. Thats the totally standard way of doing it including proper weightlifting and powerlifting competitions etc.

    mark my words mate, this is going to be huge! There's going to be books written about trolley lifting, maybe a movie made and soon every gym will have a trolley in the corner and maybe a trolley machine with fixed range of motion!

    It already is huge in my sick, twisted mind.

    I too share the dream of a trolley in every gym in every town.
    Unfortunately, you know some idiot is going to wreck the dream, and come up with the 'great' idea of a trolley smith machine. Damn them all, damn them all straight to hell
