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...

Kabuki has been hinting at their upcoming power bar for some time now and they just recently announced that they will be releasing a squat bar along with it. A little bird told me (i.e. the Kabuki CS lol) that the pre-order for both should go live either late this week or early next with a 12...

Slippery hands

I have the Powertec rack with lat attachment. Bought used on Craigslist. 1) rack does not align well when attached to rack. Photos reveal how the bottom of the attachment is lower than the bottom of the rack. This effectively "lifts" the rack off the ground. 2) The weight stack moves a...

Why buy a Power Rack?

I'm currently using a cheapish squat rack, which at the moment is ok but a bit wobbly. The spotter posts are next to useless so they are not even fitted. Squats are a real area of weakness for me and lack of safety isn't helping matters. Aside from the obvious extra safety, what other benefits...
