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...

Plantarflexed vs. dorsiflexed in non-linear leg presses?

Is there any logic to foot flexion on different leg presses? For example, the Medx Avenger is slightly plantar flexed or neutral whereas the H-Squat is massively dorsiflexed. In general I would prefer a slightly plantar flexed position but was wondering if there are any downsides beyond eventually...

Advantage Barbell

Anyone ever see these plates before. They say advantage barbell, can’t find anything about the company. Not an easy search since there are a lot of advantages to barbells and Olympic plates results. Not a matched pair so I suspect they were made at different times, not a one off plate run.

spider bar, anyone?

I have an old cambered bar I'm going to transform into one of these, since I seem to be unable to get any kind of reasonable quote for a real one. Does anyone own one, I'd like an idea of the angle for the yoke. Worse case I can measure what's comfortable on my ssb and just use that.
