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...

Hi everyone, I've been lurking the forums for awhile now looking for a solid budget FI bench and have narrowed it down to these two. I've read plenty of praise for both benches, but never a comparison of the two. They both are currently sub ~$200 USD and I think are direct competitors to...
