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...

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...

Power Rack Safeties

I have a couple of odd sized power racks that need safeties. The racks are 24 inches deep (between front and rear uprights) and the uprights are 2 x 4 (2 deep and 4 wide) with 1 inch holes. I am looking for a relatively cheap solution and was leaning towards either saber safeties or pin and pipe...

Adjusting Spotter Arm Height from Ground

I'm looking to purchase a half rack so I can squat and bench press in the garage. When I bench press I like to puff up my chest a bit and create a slight arch in my back before benching. I also like to bring the bar down to my chest. As I will be bench pressing alone I figured I will definitely...

Hi everyone, Apologies if this question has been asked before, but how necessary is a gym really? I ask because I’m trying to save to buy a house and want to cut costs wherever possible. The gym membership fees, fuel for driving to the gym, it all adds up. Plus I’d like to do my bit for the...

Powerblock Commercial Pro. Dissapointed.

Bit the bullet and bought a set of commercial pro 50 dumbbells and I'm feeling really ripped off right now. The problem is the so called steel knurled handles, and the only reason to buy these ( like $200 extra ) are utter garbage. Just picture the cheapest feeling Walmart jobby kids weights...
