A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

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...

********* floor mats

Has anybody tried the 3/4 inch floor mats (puzzle) from Amazon? I know everyone here is a fan of the horse stall mats from TSC, but the puzzle mats would be perfect for me because of the small size. The only question is whether it can handle the impact as good as the horse stall mats.

Bench Press on the Inspire SCS System

Has anyone used a free bar on the gun rack to bench press on this unit. It looks like there may not be enough space to properly get yourself under the bar because the rack is too close to the end of the machine. I would use a free bar and not the smith machine for this exercise. I'm pretty sold...
