Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Craigslist Thread (Round 3)

The last thread got up over 10,000 posts with too many people asking if they should pick up the bowflex down the street, so it's time to start a new one. Let's all keep our eyes open for the shake weights for .20/lb, strap on our Chucks, and speed away on our unicycles for those sweet pick ups....

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...

Weight-assisted dip stations.... are they really necessary...?

I see these in gyms, and I am starting to get into shape, and since I can't do more than a pull up or two, a weight assisted dip station stands out when I shop for my own home gym. What is the opinion of those on here about these? Is it really beneficial, or is a regular dip station and some...

How to pull with elbows?

I have a very well developed left bicep, and a very undeveloped upper back on the left side. I'm attributing this to pulling with my arms and not my back. Has anyone got any advice about how to pull through my elbows and not my hands?

Are these things legit? I got some nagging shoulder problems like popping of my acromion and some imbalances. Nothing painful, yet. I do basic rotation stuff with light dumbbells and bands. Wonder if a shoulder horn would take it to the next level. Anyone own these?

Biotest Dead-Squat Bar

Finally broke down and bought a trap bar. This is Equipment Forum, and so the equipment purchased may sometimes exceed any present or future need. That's certainly the case with the Dead-Squat Bar. It's a beast.
