All about equipment and iron!

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...

Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Craigslist Thread (Round 3)

The last thread got up over 10,000 posts with too many people asking if they should pick up the bowflex down the street, so it's time to start a new one. Let's all keep our eyes open for the shake weights for .20/lb, strap on our Chucks, and speed away on our unicycles for those sweet pick ups....

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...

Trap Shrugger, Trap Machine, Or Seated Trap Machine (Poll)

I decided to make another poll for trap pieces this time, from the Strength Equipment Inc. site. I assume the Trap Shrugger (No. 235) has the best versatility (Farmers walks) and most core involvement (Looks like a decent piece and I read a previous review on the boards about it). The Trap...

New DSG ETHOS Power Rack & Bench

What do you all think about this, is Dick's making an ACTUAL attempt to sell higher quality equipment? At first glance I thought maybe it's cheap material, but the weight on the bench and rack seems pretty solid (28lbs heavier than a Rogue R4). Front safety spotters, pin-pipe safeties, gusseted...

trap bar on a budget.

I've been eyeing up the cap mega hex bar for a while now watching the price hoping that it falls back to that $92 mark again but so far no luck.
