All about equipment and iron!

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...

Ok so let's go through the cheapest options for new equipment that you'd be willing to use for training. While we all dream of buying that custom built rig, or finding a solid piece of used commercial or vintage equipment to outfit your gym, many times we just want to buy something that's usable...

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...

[Home Gym] Light up your Dungeon!

If your home gym is in your garage or basement like mine, chances are you have those single bulb sockets spaced pretty far apart. When I remodeled my gym, I painted the walls yellow and red, and that lightened the room up, but I still only had two 100 watt bulbs lighting the thing up. Ever...

Cheap squat stand -is it worth it?

As someone who workouts at home, and doesn't have an ambition to squat more than 100-120kg anytime soon, I consider buying some cheap squat stand. I found only separate towers on a market, no linked ones. Can't post links and pictures because of forum rules. I also need it for the bench press,...

Help choose between two racks - Elitefts v Rep Fitness

I've been looking at power racks over the last couple weeks and I'm pretty set on getting one with plate storage. Down to the two below from Elitefts and Rep Fitness. With shipping, I consider the price difference negligible. Big drawback I see with Elite is the hole spacing, but I'll be the only...

Rolled Rubber Flooring, Worthwhile Investment?.

I believe some of the regulars have gone with rolled rubber flooring, 3/8" thick Regupol appears to be the main choice. Here in the UK it's sold under the Everroll brand. Given the cost, the amount of work involved in moving equipment and laying the flooring, do you think it's been a worthwhile...

Standing bench anyone

I have seen a couple of benches like this one in the last 2 years. One was pretty cheep and I regretted not buying it. Seems like it would be cool to have, functional, and totally unnecessary. This one appears to be adjustable, being sold by a local reseller with high prices. Anyone use one before?

Best multigrip bar?

I bought the Titan multigrip bar (all links at the bottom) when it was on sale a while back on a whim and now I realized I really like benching with a neutral grip bar because it is way easier on my bad wrists. The bar itself works fine but the knurl is awful, the welds are trash, and I'm not sure...
