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...

What is a good "starter weight" for kettle or dumbbells? And should I get a pair?

I'm pretty new to the idea of "working out". However, the simple fact is that I am ABSOLUTELY NOT ever going to use a gym. I know this, because every time I try, I refuse to work out if there are other people around. No point in pretending I'm going to, so I'm going to start doing my own thing. ...

Craigslist powerblock prices?

Dicks sporting goods is having a 20% sale off powerblocks today only and I'm tempted to buy the elites. The elites 5-50lb sell for $299.99 at Dicks. Amazon does always have the personal trainer set 5-50lb for $229.99. I've noticed everyone here says to buy the U-90s which I'd probably agree with...

Spud Inc. Long Ab Strap Questions

Why buy a Power Rack?

I'm currently using a cheapish squat rack, which at the moment is ok but a bit wobbly. The spotter posts are next to useless so they are not even fitted. Squats are a real area of weakness for me and lack of safety isn't helping matters. Aside from the obvious extra safety, what other benefits...

Curious if there is a way to do regular lat pulldowns on this machine? (see attached) I don't have the budget or space to add a second pully machine. I can get the lat pulldown bar attachment but not sure of the seating or how to keep grounded during the exercise. Thank you.
