Have some questions about bumper plates and racks.

I'm setting up a home gym and have roughly $1,000 to spend. A few years ago, I had a very basic power rack (entry level Power Line) and a cheap Sports Authority Olympic Set with the cheap bar. It served my purpose at the time and I know the importance of having a power rack for safety when lifting...

Leg machine (leverage or other) for a smallish area

I've been considering a leverage squat machine, like the Powertech one, or the BodySolid. I have no interest in non assisted squat racks at this time, just either a leverage one or possibly something else I haven't seen yet. I don't have a huge amount of space so these seemed appealing. I'm on the...
