A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Powertec workbench lever system

I've had mine for 10 years or so, some things I really love, but one thing that never quite feels right is squats with it. I've thought of creating some type of 'add on' or something to help the groove (bar path) track more the natural movement. I've tried facing the machine and facing away, each...

I’m looking at a 6 post rack. And because I’m in Canada I’m getting some scary shipping quotes from everyone. So. It’s looking like rogue. Problem is the 43” area and 24” plate storage is too big for my space. They will make an r6 or rml390 in a 30” version. I would also like to cut the plate...

Why are the Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells so absurdly expensive?
