Forum: Workout Equipment

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...

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...

Drop In Racks - Why or Why Not?

I checked mech6's thread from a few years ago, but didn't see it discussed there: What are the pros and cons of drop-in racks? At a glance they look easier to adjust safeties and jcups quickly, which I'd see as the main benefit. Anything else? Anything you don't like about them?
