Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

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

Rogue echo vs schwinn airdyne

I really like the idea of the rogue echo bike for cardio but it's a little spendy for cardio to me, I already have a treadmill and I could run outside. I'm seeing tons of old schwinn airdyne bikes on craigslist and marketplace as low as $50. These aren't the pro model but has anybody used one...

FYI - Fringe Sport barbell sale - 44 lb fat bar

Fringe Sport is having a barbell sale that ends 3/11. They don't get a lot of play here, but in my experience some of their stuff is a good bang for your buck and might be worth checking out. Most bars are 10% off, which isn't that notable, but I was in the market for a fat bar and just snagged...
