Best way to to bolt down flatfoot rack?

2 x 2 rack sitting on top of a 3/8” stall mat. My thoughts are: - drill, and tapcon through rack/mat/concrete - drill through rack, and attach angle iron, and then tap on through mat and concrete. Option one would be fastest and cheapest. Any thoughts or ideas?

Cool Where can i find replacement cables for my cable machine?

The cable machine I have is a very old and the brand isn't very well know I think (power house) so finding it is very difficult. Does anyone know where I can find replacement parts?

Anyone own, used or heard anything about modifit powerlifting belts?

Hi all Looking for a new belt sourced in the uk. Don’t want to import it. Had almost made up my mind on a Titan Longhorn 10mm lever belt from Pullum sports but someone suggested Modifit. Had a look at their website ( and they do look good. Anyone own one or have any...

Anyone use an AirDyne/Assault Bike/Fan Bike?

Wanted to ask if $250 was a good price for a used/decent condition Schwinn AirDyne AD4? I've done some research and scoured craigslist/offerup and it seems to be the best price. But what's weird is that this listing has been posted for over 6 months? Could there be a reason why it hasn't been...

To bolt or not to bolt a power rack?

I'm shopping for a power rack and it seems like all the racks I see that say bolting isn't required aren't raised, they have lower side crossmembers that fully rest on the floor. And ones that only have four contact points seem to specify they should be bolted. But I don't know if this is a...

Rolled Rubber Flooring, Worthwhile Investment?.

I believe some of the regulars have gone with rolled rubber flooring, 3/8" thick Regupol appears to be the main choice. Here in the UK it's sold under the Everroll brand. Given the cost, the amount of work involved in moving equipment and laying the flooring, do you think it's been a worthwhile...

So why do SSB have padding?

Survey says....handles twist down on collarbone/shoulder in unpleasant manner. Also virtually impossible to get bar situated on back in same manner as regular barbell. YMMV depending on body type. Pad actually came off easy, but sure is a PITA getting this thing in the rack without knocking...

Another Craigslist dreamer........

With all the threads "is this a good deal" I figured we should have one to LOL at ads that are NOT a good deal. THis guy is a real dreamer. Notice the $20 hollow dumbbell handles? If he paid 1700 for these then he got raped :

Cheap squat stand -is it worth it?

Proloc Camber Bar Attachment

I was asked about these this morning & thought I'd share with the forum while I have a few minutes. Since I've had a CSB for over a decade, here's my initial impressions from what I see. These appear like a poor man's version. They don't have the gap between the vertical bar and...

Plate-Loaded Machines

Dear forum members, I designed and manufactured heavy-duty plate-loaded muscle-building machines from a period of time 15-30 years ago. I failed, and lost a lot of money. A member on this forum, who saw some of the machines I was building then, encouraged me to give it another try. ...

Curl bar or supercurl bar?

I've used a curl bar. Is there an advantage to the supercurl design? More natural wrist angles? Separation distance? More comfortable ?....or is it just "different"?
