Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Power Rack Thread - August 2010 version

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...

Anyone have thoughts/experience with Ivanko SDH-U adjustable dumbbell?

I'm currently using some old 1" spinlock adjustable dumbbells. I wrapped some hockey tap around the grip to thicken it and eliminate the awful aggressive knurling. The DBs work fine and I like the security of the spinlock, but it is a bit time consuming to change weights/ I don't do rapid sets...

Troy HO Series plates vs. Troy PO Series plates?

My general understanding is that these two series of plates are more or less identical, specs-wise — except for their respective colors (i.e., HO Series is hammertone gray, and PO Series is black). That being said, I've read at least a few past comments that have said that the hole on the PO series...
