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

Can you squat with a barbell without center knurling

I am thinking on buying a rogue Ohio bar. I do a high bar squat rather than a lower position squat. Will this bar affect me when I high bar squat? Would it slip?

Best workout mat for home? I want one of the ones like at gym.

I like doing a lot of core/ab exercises at home. The gym has a few really nice ones but has no branding on them. Its like a rubber / leatherish feel and when I do sit ups it doesnt make fart noises. Reason I say that is because I bought the one listed below and without and without shirt/clothes on...

How tight should (SBD) elbow sleeves be?

Just bought some mediums and they fit on my arms, but are pretty tight and restrictive. Sort of like a blood pressure cuff at about half pump. There’s some resistance when I bend my arms, but not tons. Not sure how tight they are supposed to be.

Got some standard sized plates I want to sell but would like to paint them because they're old and there's some rust spots. I'm thinking of just using a rustoleum spray paint. Just thought I'd see if anyone here has done anything similar and if you have any insight on the type of paint.
