ironmaster lottery

Has anyone participated in this and what should I expect? I am hoping to either purchase the Ironmaster 45 and an addon kit or heavy handle kit, or the regular Ironmaster 75 kit with stand. Is it structured as a cart option and then it assigns a lottery number?

Hello everyone, so some months ago I wrote a post about stainless steel plates that I found. Turns out, they are not legit. Now I'm looking for other weight plates, but I'm not really sure on the material and possibly coating. The most important thing is good corrosion resistance (I don't mean...

What's the point of a Power Bar?

I was recently looking over my barbell rack, and I came to a realization; if you have at least one specialty (straight) bar, do you really need a power bar?

Squat wedges

Anyone out there use wedge for squats? I'm considering one from Prime. Based on their suggestion, I should order the 15 degree incline. Anyone else have one? Thoughts? Was there angle suggestion ideal? Also, I tend to have a wider stance due to a knee issue. Any thoughts on width?
