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...

PowerBlock EXP series, Elite Series or IronMaster?

Love my 5-50 individual set but with looking at relocating it it time to seriously consider downsizing where I can. I’ve had some of the PowerBlock Sports but they were a smaller set and had smaller handles wasn’t thrilled. The Elites have a bigger handle and now PowerBlock has the EXP series that...

Mods to GHD for reverse hypers?

I don't have the space for a dedicated reverse hyper, so I use a GHD as a ghetto reverse hyper. Thinking that with a few mods, a GHD would fill this role a little better. I'm specifically thinking of the Rogue and Titan GHDs, though many of them are fairly similar in design. 1. Handles....

American Barbell SS Elite Power Bar Vs. Rogue SS Ohio Power Bar

I currently own a TPB and was thinking of upgrading to a 29mm stainless steel power bar, I've heard the Rogue Ohio Power Bar is a more aggressive knurl (not sure how much more, or less compared to the TPB, but assuming probably more) and I've heard the American Barbell Elite Power Bar is a milder...

I love my Vulcan Absolute Power Bar, but I find the knurl a little aggressive for pressing. After selling off some other stuff, I'm thinking about adding another bar with less bite. Preferably around or under $300. I'm a big fan of oxide coating. I don't love zinc and chrome. Stainless, bare steel,...
