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...

I have two pairs of 18" Rip Toned wrist wraps, one called "stiff" and the other called "less stiff". I use the less stiff ones for squats. They wrap around my wrists snugly. But for the stiff ones, there is like a 1/2" gap between them and my forearm above my wrists, even if I pull them tight: ...

Due to my Sorinex Bulldog purchase, I'm looking to upgrade to a rack with 1" holes. I've been using a Rogue half-rack for years and recently used a Sorinex rack that was about 40-42" depth inside.
