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...

Cable or lever belt squat

Is there one that’s better than the other ? I know lever the weight depending on where the loading horns are in relation to where you clip on can differ hugely and I was always under the impression that a cable such as west side athletic platform is a truer weight? Might have that totally wrong. ...
