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...

Sticky Thread Sticky: Spam threads and posts

Just as in every year past, this time of year sees an uptick of spammers, scammers, crooks, charlatans, ganefs, and knuckleheads bent on using this forum to shill their junk. One more time; don't quote or reply to such threads/posts; doing so only creates more work to clear them out. Simply...

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...

Big thanks again for all the help ladies and gentlemen I appreciate your time.

Why buy a Power Rack?

I'm currently using a cheapish squat rack, which at the moment is ok but a bit wobbly. The spotter posts are next to useless so they are not even fitted. Squats are a real area of weakness for me and lack of safety isn't helping matters. Aside from the obvious extra safety, what other benefits...

Adjustable FI Bench Design

I'm highly considering getting another adjustable FI bench (thinking of using my Legend 3 way bench for my dumbbell area) and switching it out of the rack area for a new adjustable bench with a 12" back pad and customized to a slightly shorter height (if going the custom route). With that said I...

Barbell not long enough &shoulder mobility

Got my first barbell. No weight on it yet. It is 5 ft long. When I put it in the squat on my back, I felt like I needed to have a wider grip on it. My shoulders felt scrunched up. I broke my collar bone years ago and it was not set back right so I have some mobility limits in that shoulder. I don’t...
