Sticky Thread Sticky: The Cheapo Setup

Ok so let's go through the cheapest options for new equipment that you'd be willing to use for training. While we all dream of buying that custom built rig, or finding a solid piece of used commercial or vintage equipment to outfit your gym, many times we just want to buy something that's usable...

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...

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...

Body-Solid GLGS100 Leverage System Review

I received my Body-Solid GLGS100 to pick up at the fitness equipment store last Thursday (it was expected to be re-stocked sometime in July due to the pandemic) but luckily they had some in stock and delivered it in a timely manner upon the purchase date which was excellent!

Hexbar question

For anyone who may have tried it, I was wondering about modding a hexbar. Would it be possible to replicate the aesthetic of an open back bar by sawing off one side, and still maintaining the bar's weight capacity? Or would it weaken it? Open back tends to be kind of an expensive feature in bars,...

Kabuki transformer bar

Does anyone here have one of these bars? I’m down to the last pieces I want to add for my home gym, at least for now (a SSB and a reverse hyper). As far as the SSB, I’m considering either the Elite FTS or the Kabuki Transformer bar. For those that own the Kabuki, is it worth the cost? With...

Any estimate for when a equipment will be back in stock?

I made a thread a month ago asking for home gym tips and I'm about ready to purchase equipment in the next 1-2 weeks but glancing around it seems like a lot of things are still out of stock. Just curious if anyone has any idea when things will generally be available again. Thanks for any thoughts.

Anyone use a ShouldeRok?

I have terrible mobility and I keep seeing this pop up on Kabuki's instagram and it looks like it might be a good product but I get a snake oil vibe with some of their other stuff so I was hoping to get some unaffiliated opinions on it. Anyone use one of these? Worth the money?

Best lube to use for lat machine attachment?

I have one of those plate loaded lat pull down/low row attachments for my rack: I find I need to spritz it down with some silicone lube before every use if I want the plate holder to slide easily. Is this the appropriate lube to use? It seems odd to me that I need to lube it up before...

I made my own simple vibration reduction weightlifting platform

I know I'm not the only one with issues of neighbors complaining, so I hope I can help people with this. This is a cheaper alternative to an Eleiko SVR. Maybe an Eleiko SVR will reduce even more noise+vibrations and will have less (and more controlled) bounce, but: - It's too small (imo) (2m...
