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...

Arrow My Experience with Titan fitness

I know a few people dislike the T-3 but with the memorial day sale i paid $460 dollars with all the extra's and it would have been really great for me. Unfortunately it seems I might have to move and by the time when and if they send it out, it might not make sense to even put the rack up. I guess...

Titan-fitness rack style

I have an idea

This may be the dumbest idea you guys will hear on this site, but I was deadlifting, and putting the plates on and off is a pain in the ass.
