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....

Sticky Thread Sticky: Official Newbie Bowflex Search

So you are new and dumb enough to believe the Bowflex commercials, before you get flamed and negged into the red, use the damn search function to get the answer to "dude, should I be ignorant and think about getting a bowflex" OK, now if you post another thread, you get what is coming to...

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...

I found a cheap way to increase my powerblocks

I have the U90 that I bought second hand stage 1/2 so the 90lb total. I didn't want to go to stage 3 as I felt it looked clumsy that big. I was randomly looking at eBay when a pair of ankle weights that weigh 5kg each caught my attention. I then looked around and realised that you can...

Transformer Bar

Not sure what to think of this one. I'd like more than one pick of a disgruntled dude. From what I see... The camber is not enough, imo. The arms needs to be at least double the length. The option to change the camber is pretty cool. I wish this was an option on all SSBs. No weight. With...

Who will my plates attract?

Bolting down racks

I am in Canada and I am thinking of getting either the Rogue R-3 or one of the Rogue clones that are available here. That said, I was wondering about the necessity of bolting it down. If I don't do any band movements, is there a need for bolting down these heavy-duty racks?
