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...

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.

Anyone know where one can buy carabiners that are large enough for 3/4 inch chain. I bought a bunch of chains from Titan both 5/8 and 3/4 and they sent carabiners that are too small. I mentioned it to them and of course they proceeded to send me the exact same ones. They are ok for 5/8 but way too...

Northern Lights Open Trap Bar

Looks like another option in the open trap bar with integrated barbell jack category: Thoughts? Concerns? I emailed them about the only concern that I have, which is the handle spacing at 31.5". I'm hoping that dimension is to the inside of the frame.

I'm in the market for a hack squat and I think I've narrowed it down to these three brands. I really like the adjustable angle (30-70 degrees) and adjustable foot plate on the Watson one, however, the carriage is insanely heavy and the safety hooks are at an awkwardly high or low height for me...
