Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Craigslist Thread (Round 3)

The last thread got up over 10,000 posts with too many people asking if they should pick up the bowflex down the street, so it's time to start a new one. Let's all keep our eyes open for the shake weights for .20/lb, strap on our Chucks, and speed away on our unicycles for those sweet pick ups....

Sticky Thread Sticky: The Cheapo Setup

Ok so let's go through the cheapest options for new equipment that you'd be willing to use for training.

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...

Slingshot used too much for volume @ low weight, can separate triceps?

Guy @ gym who informed me about SlingShot. Tried for just 1 set and felt great. However, he said, "Don't use it too much, especially @ low weight + volume, because it can separate your triceps." ??? He's a big guy who is generally very knowledgeable. Seemed weird to me, though, maybe he...

Vintage Iron Thread

Hi All, I read a post a few weeks ago in which SnowOne and DonForeman suggested a vintage iron thread to discuss/identify old plates.

Are these things legit? I got some nagging shoulder problems like popping of my acromion and some imbalances. Nothing painful, yet. I do basic rotation stuff with light dumbbells and bands. Wonder if a shoulder horn would take it to the next level. Anyone own these?

Gloves for light weights?

I bought Gold Gym's Elite Wrist Wrap Gloves since the dumbbells hurt my hands. The thing is, I'm brand new to weight lifting and can barely do 3 sets of 8 dumbbell curls using 25 lbs. Will I look like a fool using these $20 gloves on tiny weights?
