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.

I'm learning choreography from K-Pop songs to exercise, but obviously it's pretty rough on my feet. I've been hesitant to try wearing shoes I own because I dance on regular wood flooring and don't want to make a lot of noise. I don't live above or close by anyone, but I still get self conscious...
