    A 6' bar won't fit into 4' wide racks unless it has very short sleeves. There are two types of 6' bars, ones that won't fit in racks and ones that will but trade off plate loading space.

    You should try belt squats and go to parallel. Most leg presses only allow a partial range of motion, a lot like doing a half or quarter squat.

    Steinborn lift only works with a 7' bar. Don't count on being able to do that lift. I tried it as a novice and it's a disaster waiting to happen. And when you don't have a large padded area, if you...

    I'm not much bigger than your skinny goal look and deadlift 385 at 190 lbs. Started 2.5 years ago at 150 lbs BW, deadlifting 60 lbs. Could have made faster progress if I didn't make stupid mistakes...

    If equipment is so crappy that it breaks and maims someone, you would be liable along with the equipment manufacturer. So inspect it. Otherwise yea.

    A combination of differences in length of the dumbbell, thickness of the handle and small variations in weight. 25 lbs may be 28 lbs at home, but 25 lbs at gym. Some gyms don't count the 2-4 lb...

    That's a good breakdown. The only standard 1" bars that have 300lb+ weight capacity are 5' Hampton beefy bar (with 8" plate loading area) and Ivanko.

    The usual ones available in the US are 25mm, spinlock, capacity for 5' is 200 for 7' is 250lbs. People often push them beyond that. Hampton and Ivanko sell standard bars with higher capacity. And the...

    Well that's what I was asking about how the powerlifter guy knows. I'd guess powerlifters have a good rate of reinjuring the same spot and clearly measure strength lost while not training. And you...

    Your bench will go down either way. You won't be coming back in 3 months benching 225x8 even if EMS is magic. You'll have to deload to make sure you don't injure the tendon/joint again.

    Interesting problem. Have you tried not doing that with your mouth? Instead of clinching teeth, leave your lips closed, your jaw unlocked.

    Standalone pullup bars. These are wobbly and reduce the amount of pullups one can do, but can be taken apart. You can build sturdier ones yourself from wood and a pipe...

    The only thing you need from there is the weight set. You'll be selling or getting rid of that bench to get a power rack and standalone bench if you value your safety. So for $300 you get $1 per lb...
