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...

Crepinsek 1500LBS vs EliteFTS SS Yoke

So, I decided once and for all to address the debate that I've (and several others) had with the two bars as far as which is actually the better SSB.
