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...

Ironmasters Quick Lock Dumbell - play in plates, Normal?

To anyone who has a set of the Ironmasters 75lb or more quick lock dumbells, do you notice any looseness when using them at all unless you really torque the quick lock screw? I noticed that unless I really crank down on them there is still some movement which can be heard and felt during exercises...

Manufacturing in the USA vs China vs Anywhere Else

The question is inspired from some conversation over on the Rogue Barbell Club thread, but didn't want to derail it by posting there. I'm curious about your guys' perspective of country of origin for manufacturing, especially those who avoid Made in China. Your responses will help shape some...

Nautilus Pullover Restoration/Retrofit Project

Back in June, I found a late 70's Nautilus Aluminum Cam Plateloaded Pullover. I had read that some of the old plateloaders were, perhaps, the best pullovers ever made. Upon trying out my new purchase, I decided to totally restore the machine and retrofit it with cables and needle bearings in place...

DIY wheeled resistance sled - anyone make something like this?

After seeing videos of the Torque and XPO sleds, there's no way I would want to deal with the hassles of more traditional sleds. With wheeled sleds that have internal resistance, there's virtually no noise to annoy you or your neighbors, no damage to your driveway, no need to load up sled with 45lb...

Trying to understand resistance band loops

One thing I've never been sure about with resistance loops is the state resistance. I get that there is a range of resistance to each loop, ie 50 to 125lb on the strongest loop I have, but I'm not sure how that plays out. For example, if I'm doing a pull apart with the 50 to 125Lb loop, and I'm...

Thoughts on Irwin Fitness (monolift, bench, roller j-cups)?

Basement Brandon reviewed Irwin Fitness Roller J-Cups and they look pretty great. I checked out their site and the monolift attachment and adjustable bench caught my eye as well. It looks like they put a lot of thought into their products and have good build quality. Not cheap and shipping from...
