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...

Has anyone found a good Leg Press/Hack Combo?

Buying a separate unit would be the preferred method here, but space won't allow that right now. I am going to have an "All in one" system for upper body, but need to add variety for leg day with limit space available. It seems that almost all of these combos share the same issue - bottoming out...

DIY Cable crossover for powe rack with cable attachment (pics)

Hi, If you already have a power rack with low/high pulley attachment and need a cable cross over, then you need to spend only about 30-50$ to get this system. I have used it for the past one month (6 days/week) and surprisingly is very smooth and effective. I work with my friend who is quite...

I want 2 arm levers so I can work my back and chest at the same time. It needs a rounded, padded seat. Most the seats are flat on top and 90 degree drop off at the edge, which is not comfortable. I'm hoping for a $150 price. I wish I could get magnetic resistance. Those are quiet. All I...

Has anyone used one of these T Rex Harnesses? I came across it looking into the Marrs Bar and Zercher/Front squat harnesses. Any insights or thoughts? Seems pretty steep at $650, but I would probably pay $300 for something similar.
