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...

Prime Fitness Adjustable Bench Review

I've gone through a ton of adjustable benches (multiple models of Rogue, Rep, Ironmaster, Hoist, CAP, Legend). Each one had some good features, but also things I didn't like. Well, it appears I can finally stop buying benches. The Prime adjustable bench fits all of my needs perfectly (for now,...

Will dumbbell prices ever come down?

I was lucky enough to get some various high-quality dumbbells right after the pandemic started. Wish I'd bought some heavier ones: If you can even find them now, they remain severely overpriced. Before the end of the year, maybe?

Any idea when Powertec Leverage Machine will be available?

Just like all the Dumbbells, the machine is not available. I gave Powertec a call but they are not accepting. Also, they never responded to my email enquiring about the product. Just wondering if anyone on here has any connections and could give me some insight.

I'm going to pick up the Medium Grip Supinate, which generally seems to be the clear favorite. What's your 2nd favorite? It looks like I'll save a little on shipping if I order two now, instead of one now and one later.

About to get the leverage machine. Assure me that this is better than Bowflex

I really do like Powertec. I had a bench press machine from PowerTec in the past and miss it. I remember doing back rows and shrugs on it too. The really cool thing about the recommended leverage machine is that it can not only do the bench press, but it can do squats, back rows, deadlifts and even...

Kabuki Strength Transformer Bar Review...not a Coop Review

Full disclosure, I've always been intrigued with the concept of the Transformer Bar as some are aware. The ability to adjust the sleeve loading positions to me forward and backward and up and down could allow for some really interesting training options, sort of like having multiple bars in one.

Looking for input from hex / trap bar users. Likes / Dislikes, exercises performed

I'm considering adding trap bar deadlifts to my routine as a low-back friendly deadlift alternative (I no longer conventional DL). I won't be pulling 500, so I think that makes all bars available to me. Would probably use them for other exercises like farmer carries, shrugs or whatever else works...

FID bench that's also a decent prone leg curl machine?

As much as I'd like to get a dedicated leg curl, leg extension machine, I just can't make it work in my already packed garage gym. So I'm stuck using the leg attachment for my FID bench. But it probably goes without saying that it leaves a lot to be desired. But maybe some manufacturer out there...
