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...

Leg Press Attachment for IronMaster 2000 Review

I've had this for quite a while, but recently sold my leg press/hack squat combo to make room for another piece so I've started using the IM 2000's leg press attachment. I've only used an inverted leg press a few times back in the late 80s when the base I was stationed at had one and not other leg...

IM Super Bench Pro Leg Attachment experience?

Typically I prefer free weights for leg day, but I'm moving into a more bodybuilding style of training, so being able to perform lying leg curls and seated extensions is appealing.

Pedestal Footwear ("sock shoes"): Anybody Tried 'Em?

I've been wearing a pair of water shoes for my workouts at home. Lightest, flattest, grippy footwear I have. But they do still have a bit of heel rise, and I'd prefer not to wear them out as water shoes. So I got to thinking about so-called "sock shoes." Did a bit of research, last night, and...

Ironmaster Olympic Plates

Has anyone purchased the Ironmaster rubber coated olympic plates? The price doesn't seem bad compared to Rep or Titan. If so what do you think of them? I got rid of my leg press, so having thinner weights that I can fit on the leg press is no longer a requirement for me. I like the fact that...

While I have 36" of inside rack space, with the Marrs Bar and the nature of it's shape it does cramp the rack a bit considering I basically do every movement inside the rack including all the floor lifts and pull ups (so it involves some re-arranging the bars during the workouts).
