Forum: Workout Equipment

All about equipment and iron!

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...

Mods to GHD for reverse hypers?

I don't have the space for a dedicated reverse hyper, so I use a GHD as a ghetto reverse hyper. Thinking that with a few mods, a GHD would fill this role a little better. I'm specifically thinking of the Rogue and Titan GHDs, though many of them are fairly similar in design. 1. Handles....

What kind of headphones (bluetooth) ones would you recommend for the gym? I was thinking of getting those apple airpods or beats but beats are overpriced so any recommendations? I mostly want them to be as much as durable.

Cool Best specialty barbells

Kinda broad question, but what's your guys' favorite specialty barbells? Been wanting to mix things up barbell wise for my home gym and wasn't sure where to start. More than likely getting a ssb and a mutt bar since it's relatively cheap, but was wanting some more opinions on other barbells.
