A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Atlantis Commercial Piece--Rope instead of cable???

I have the opportunity to buy this Atlantis adjustable cable station for my basement gym. I am not a big fan of cable crossovers so that's why I prefer just a single stack cable machine. Plus I like the fact it adjust from low to high and in between for a bigger variety of exercises. The design...

high quality lat pulldown shipped in pieces?

Any suggestions? It would be impossible for me to move it into my garage if the thing is shipped fully assembled, so I'm looking for a good quality brand that could be assembled instead.

Wall strip - is one stud sufficient or do I need stringers to span multiple studs?

Looking to mount a wall strip and plan to attach the foot roller assembly for a GHD (both pictured below). For this kind of application, is it sufficient to secure the strip to one stud (I can use 2 or more lag screws), or is that asking for trouble?
