Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Power Rack Thread - August 2010 version

This is a collaborative effort from the equipment forum members. The 2008 edition has a lot of broken links and rather than keep that one going we decided to start a new one. First let’s have a few definitions to clear up some confusion. Squat Stands: These are probably the most useless...

Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Craigslist Thread (Round 3)

The last thread got up over 10,000 posts with too many people asking if they should pick up the bowflex down the street, so it's time to start a new one. Let's all keep our eyes open for the shake weights for .20/lb, strap on our Chucks, and speed away on our unicycles for those sweet pick ups....

Help Me Decide on a Cage.

I'm in the process of building my garage gym. I found what I think is a decent local deal: power rack, bench, bars and plates. The rack looks good, but it has no bells and whistles, and I don't see a brand name on it. I'm wondering is it's better to get a newer, more expensive rack that has all...

Let's see your garage gym fan.

My first summer with my garage gym is approaching. The garage is partly underground and does not get very warm or cold, except if the door is open. We have a small oscillating fan in there that does a good job of blowing bubbles for the kids, but is not going to keep me cool if the gym is hot. ...
