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

Need advice (again) on choosing polyurethane plates

Hello, so I decided a while ago to buy polyurethane coated weight plates. Now I have two options, that I have attached below in the form of pictures. The Captain America grip plates are thinner (25 kg: 4 cm vs 25 kg: 5,1 cm for the other option) and that's good, but that puts me in a dilemma...

Leg extension search, bent arm

I had piggy backed my leg extension search on my leg curl thread, but needed a separate thread. In an episode of mutant on the mission, Big Ron mentions that the arm on leg curl machines can get bent. That is it better to have a center arm rather than a side arm. So I saw this body masters leg...

Question Does anyone know where to find a “bumper plate sleeve” to convert a standard plate?

I picked up this pair of Weider 45’s, and it came with some sort of sleeve that covers the edges of the plate to basically turn it into a bumper plate. I’d love to get more, since they make it perfect for deadlifts on concrete. Has anyone seen them before, or know where to get them?
