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

Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

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...

Landmine Row Handle Choice

I don't have a pulley system so the landmine plays a big role in my back routine right now. Was looking to get better hand positioning and range of motion than grabbing the bar with my hands or with a towel. The BWTG multi-grip design makes sense to me. Before ordering I thought I'd better check in...

Hex Bar owners - do you use it as much as you thought?

I'm contemplating getting a hex bar with an order of dumbbells I'm placing soon. Having a trap bar will eliminate the need to have dumbbells that go past my effective bench range just for dumbbell shrugs. I'm thinking it could be great to have a hex bar in my gym, set up with some weights, that I...

Sell plates and buy all York legacy? Am I crazy?

I have lots of iron. Too much actually. Too many change plates, 35’s I never use. I don’t know why. They are a mix and match of Hampton deep dish, “standard” 45’s, a plain old modern York cast. I needed a couple of 45’s so I ordered 2 York legacy 45’s just to see what the fuss was all about. ...

Best multigrip bar?

I bought the Titan multigrip bar (all links at the bottom) when it was on sale a while back on a whim and now I realized I really like benching with a neutral grip bar because it is way easier on my bad wrists. The bar itself works fine but the knurl is awful, the welds are trash, and I'm not sure...

Ok, bolt-down Power rack

I’m getting to the point where my eBay special no name rack isn’t going to cut it. I need a rack I can bolt down. I’m just not comfortable with free standing anymore. The Titan T-3 HD seems the obvious choice and I’ve looked at Rep and Rogue. Any other suggestions?
