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....

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

This is a collaborative effort from the equipment forum members. The 2008 edition has a lot of broken links and rather than keep that one going we decided to start a new one. First let’s have a few definitions to clear up some confusion. Squat Stands: These are probably the most useless...

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...

Hey guys - Time to get some advice I've been using Edge Fitness' SSB bar exclusively for squats for well over a year. The only problem: It's not long enough. I barely have over an inch to squat before I smack the safeties and it's causing me to fail lifts(see attachment). Also(avoiding cheap...

Are these things legit? I got some nagging shoulder problems like popping of my acromion and some imbalances. Nothing painful, yet. I do basic rotation stuff with light dumbbells and bands. Wonder if a shoulder horn would take it to the next level. Anyone own these?

Men's Underwear 28" Waist

I am having troubles finding men's athletic underwear that actually fits a 28" waist. I have tried UA, Nike, Exofficio, Saxx, Addidas, and Lululemon and they all bottom out around a 30 which leaves me bunching up and unsupported. 28" is not that tiny, especially for endurance athletes, so I feel...
