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...

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...

Recommended resistance bands for weight training

With the gyms being closed right now due to COVID-19, I have no choice but to try to weight train at home. Buying a set of dumbbells and a bench would be out of my budget right now, nor do I have room for all that equipment, so I'm thinking of buying a set of resistance bands for under $50 instead....
