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...

Question Trying to figure out name of machine I used at a gym a few years ago

I don't know the name, but it seemed to be the equivalent of a bench press, but instead of having to lift off, you would use your feet/legs to bring the weights (plated, I think) to your chest level, then pushed away with your arms like a bench press motion, until you were done with your set, then...

Recommendations for Standard 1" Barbell

I know it's a long shot, but are there any standard barbells I should be looking to buy. I just have an abundance of standard plates and it doesn't make sense for me to shell out 4x on olympic plates + barbell versus going this route. Appreciate any input.

Superbench Leg Extension Attachment

Hi guys. Was gifted a superbench from someone that was moving out and I was just wondering if anyone has the leg attachment? Is this something worth picking up? It came with the sit up attachment. Not sure if there is anything else worth picking up for the bench + my space is pretty limited.

I bought these 5-100 dumbbells in 5lb increments at a great price due to the condition, and I want to semi-restore them. I believe they are older models because the handle feels to be 27mm.
