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...

Advice on lifting gloves

Going into winter and my gym is unheated. Normally the bar warms up in my hand, but when it's really far below zero it causes problems. I much prefer lifting in the cold, the colder the better actually. Any advice on gloves to keep my hands from freezing to the bar?

Easy to add plates to an existing cable machine?

I'm looking at getting something like an Inspire FT1 or Cybex Bravo to my workout area. If I decide that the weight stack isn't heavy enough, is it easy enough to buy the additional accessory weights and add them on? ... or is this the kind of thing that should be ordered when buying the machine?

Morning all! I've just seen that there's a thing called Mirror fitness; basically an interactive mirror/camera which shows you live fitness classes and lets you talk to your other fitness pals and instructors.

A few questions about a deadlift platform

I want to lift on my ceramic tile floor, it's the only place I can lift inside. I figure if I build a 4 x 8 deadlift platform, I could put the squat rack in the middle and just deadlift inside the rack. I keep it controlled and I lift under 400 lbs, do you think this would damage the floor? When...

Ironmaster plate tree

Hi, does anyone know if the ironmaster plates work with a standard plate tree? I think the ironmaster plate hole is a little under 1”. I don’t have any standard plates to compare with. I find it rather cumbersome to stack the ironmaster plates within the stand. Thanks.
