What should you use?

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....

Question about my 'new' lat machine

I got this Powertec lat machine off Craigslist last week for $50. Was pretty happy with that price and it's in good shape. (pic 1 shows whole machine) I've only ever used lat machines with a weight stack so this one using plates is new to me. When the weights come down they don't reach the bottom...

Removing tape residue from knurling

I've got a bar that I think has spent years with athletic tape wrapped around the knurling. A wire brush will not touch this stuff so I'd like to try a chemical that is safe for the black oxide finish. Anyone done this?

T-Bar Row handles - superfluous?

Because I'm interested mostly in functional strength at the moment, I ordered a landmine device for my apartment gym. They seem to be pretty versatile tools, and for the money, probably a great investment to add to the things you can do with your barbell and weights. I have seen T-bar handles...

Pros and cons of a half-rack?

Due to space considerations in my home gym, I've been looking at some adverts for power half-racks. What are the pros and cons of half-racks? Are there any basic weight-lifting exercises that I would not be able to do using a half-rack versus a full-rack?
