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....

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...

Help me Decide between Revolvers and Rogue Calibrated Plates

Hey everyone. I've been doing a ton of research and I'm down to these two options. I love the color of the calibrated plates and they are a great deal compared to Eleikos or Ivanko calibrated. The Ivankos are just classic. I love the look and even when they get beat up they are awesome. I have...

Custom Thompson Fat Pad Bench - by Mech6

Mech shipped this in last week and due to work/family travel I just had a chance to build it tonight. Sadly too tired to lift. A few of us here own Donny Thompson's Fat Pads which due to their thickness end up producing (for me and some others) an unacceptably high flat bench when mounted on a...

Wrist tattoo with straps/hooks

I just got an inner wrist tattoo about a month ago and started to realize a possible problem that might come up down the road.
