What type of plywood to get?


Can someone recommend what type of plywood to get for this situation:

I have a power cage in the garage. At any point in time the power cage may be loaded with up to 500lbs of weight. The biggest issue is the weights will come into hard contact with the ground(deadlifts). My goal is to have the power cage and my weights not touching the garage(incase of spills or flooding) and to protect the garage floor. I do have rubber mats to place on top of the plywood, I just didn't realize there are 1billion different types of plywood.

My plan is to get 4 pieces of 4x8 plywood. 2 layered down side by side and the other 2 layered on top going the other way. 1/2 inch Rubber mats on top.

Here is what I would recommend. http://www.homedepot.com/Lumber-Comp...&storeId=10051

This plywood should stay fairly flat and has water repellant so humidity from the concrete should not affect it.
