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...

Kabuki has been hinting at their upcoming power bar for some time now and they just recently announced that they will be releasing a squat bar along with it. A little bird told me (i.e. the Kabuki CS lol) that the pre-order for both should go live either late this week or early next with a 12...

Plate I.D. please.

I picked up a set of Hampton plates this evening. The hundred pound plates I'm guessing are CAP/USA Sports. No CAP branding, and machined hole. The 2 non-Hampton 45s I've never seen before. They say standard, have Lbs and Kg, machined back and hole. Anybody have the nitty gritty on these plates?
