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...

Ok so let's go through the cheapest options for new equipment that you'd be willing to use for training.

Squat rack hack --> reverse hyperextensions

Disclaimer: I've literally never even performed a reverse hyperextension before I decided to try this and record myself (as you'll likely be able to tell from seeing my form in the video). Hell, I haven't even seen a reverse hyper machine in person. So, what I've done here may not be the safest or...

Vintage Iron Thread

Hi All, I read a post a few weeks ago in which SnowOne and DonForeman suggested a vintage iron thread to discuss/identify old plates. I wasn't part of that discussion, but I see that no one has created the thread, and I have a couple of plates that I could use some help identifying, so I figured...

barbell width between the collars.

I'm looking for a bar that's wider between the collars because I'm hitting the feet of my rack. I deadlift in a very tiny space and have limited room. After lifting in a winter hat the other morning I felt the hat come into contact with the window in the door I deadlift in front of. I turned...

Airdyne Evolution Comp chain tensioner problem

When hitting speeds over ~90rpm, whether I build up to it relatively gradually( over 5-10s starting from ~60rpm ) or jump right up to it (like Tabata-style) the chain intermittently slips over--not off-- the tensioner sprocket. This results in an annoying surge/grab which may happen every few...

Power racks with adjustable pulley systems?

Hi all. I've been on the fence about transitioning to a home gym for a while now. I found a PPR200X on craigslist for $200 that I'd like to go pickup, but I'm concerned that the lat attachment is almost just as expensive as the rack itself. I've read about some people doing a DIY pulley setup but...

Any cheaper alternative to Proloc collars?

I have several custom bars that don't quite lock down well with my lock jaw style collars. I really like the Proloc design for this, but I'm a cheap bastard, and don't want to spend $42+ for them.
