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...

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...

I recently picked up t-grip bar that doesn't fit well on my gun rack. I'd like to store it on my power rack towards the top out of the way. Need this to be very safe/secure, not damage the bar, and still be able to access fairly quickly. I'd just get another pair of j-hooks, but the holes at the...

Drop In Racks - Why or Why Not?

I checked mech6's thread from a few years ago, but didn't see it discussed there: What are the pros and cons of drop-in racks? At a glance they look easier to adjust safeties and jcups quickly, which I'd see as the main benefit. Anything else? Anything you don't like about them?
