Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

I don't think a thread like this exists for the barbell, so I wanted to start one. The Olympic barbell is one of the most important purchases one can make for their home gym. A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

13 gauge rack capacity? (Let’s be honest I’m fishing for a reason to buy gear!)

My trusty rack is a 25 year old parabody. It’s 13 gauge, 2x2. It has served me well over the years. It’s a non bolt down, and designed almost perfect. Hole spacing is 2-1/2”, nice thick 1” saber safety’s. I was wondering what the weight,capacity of this rack would be? I also made the mistake...

Shoulderok...V3 vs Tactical?

Ive decided to get one of these. The V3 looks more than sufficient as I would not have the need for portability. One thing about the Tactical that im wondering is if there may be many more uses just for the short section when broken down. There is already knurling on the "top" of the short...
