Post Sticky Thread Sticky: The straight dope on BELTS...

There are always a lot of posts on belts... their purpose and efficacy, safety, and their resultant impact on training. Hopefully this thread will help some people see the light, and put to rest a lot of the misinformation out there. The purpose of a belt is to increase intra-abdominal...

Vintage Iron Thread

Hi All, I read a post a few weeks ago in which SnowOne and DonForeman suggested a vintage iron thread to discuss/identify old plates. I wasn't part of that discussion, but I see that no one has created the thread, and I have a couple of plates that I could use some help identifying, so I figured...

Question Will those bands be heavy?

First of all, does anybody have a pre-outlined log book (basically left for my to fill in but helps keep stuff more organized)? Or do you just write stuff down in a normal notebook? Second, I would like to get a log book to write stuff down while at the gym, and then an app/website to input that...

Question Squatting inside the squat rack. (Short person help.)

So I'm 5'6", and I like to do really deep ATG squats. With the squat racks that my gym has (see attached for similar), I'm too short to squat all the way through my full ROM without hitting the safety bars, so what I usually do is walk it out of the rack completely to do my set, then walk it back...

Hack Squat Weight Holder: straight bar vs tbar

I've been doing the 5 x 5 workout for the past few weeks and after a few workouts I switched to the squat rack instead of the smith machine once I felt I had improved my form. Due to the increase in bar weight I was putting less plates on but I've reached the point where I felt like I needed...

Rogue Monster Utility bench (an ongoing review)

What's up fellas (and if any ladies are lurking). So as some of you know I've set up a garage gym and loving it! I needed a solid & dedicated flat bench. I don't do much incline press work at all so the need for a FID wasn't needed. I knew Rogue was a solid company that made solid and...
