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...

Hip belt with landmine vs loading pin vs machine

I’ve been doing hip belt squats for about 6 months now using a dip belt and landmine barbell... to me, the angle of bar pulling during the movement makes it feel like I’m doing more of a hack squat. If I were to use two plyo boxes and a loading pin, would the motion feel more like a “natural squat”...

Garage Gym - Horse Stall Mats Question

Will horse stall mats alone be enough to protect the concrete floor? Using bumper plates and (at most for now) dropping 500lbs from deadlift height down. Or should I have some plywood underneath the horse stall mats?
