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...

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...

Cybex Bravo or FreeMotion Cable Cross

Yes, another functional trainer question. I narrowed it down to these two (actually still considering the Prime FT so 3). Space isn't a huge issue but, in a home gym, it is always somewhat limited. I'm considering the Bravo because of the additional flexibility of the pulley flappers, I like...

Thought On TDS Kettlebell Handle vs Titan KB Swing?

Both are about the same price, and would be used for DLs in a tight space, possibly for other regular KB stuff. I've had a couple of TDS handles that were fine, but it was years ago. Any pros/cons you can think of, for either?
