All about equipment and iron!

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...

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...

Kabuki Strength Transformer Bar Review...not a Coop Review

The ability to adjust the sleeve loading positions to me forward and backward and up and down could allow for some really interesting training options, sort of like having multiple bars in one.

Exclamation Building my own power rack - help needed

My father's a blacksmith, and after looking at the prices of power racks - they're too expensive in Malta, and I can't buy from abroad (transportation costs to my island are too high). So we decided to build one ourselves. I'd like some advice from people who might have already built one...

Thumbs up RESTORATION: Ivanko Pro-Style Rubber Dumbbells. (( IvankoBarbellCo Where are you? ))

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. I do not want to put too much money into them because I might flip them down the road for a profit, but for...

What's the difference between Bowflex XG2 SE vs Bowflex PR1000?

So I'm pretty set on getting a Bowflex. I understand that it doesn't give you the barbell benefits for building mass. Some of these exercises are more complimentary. I get that. I'm not gonna use it to replace my free weight workout, but to add to it. And part of the reason is because all the gyms...
