Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Power Rack Thread - August 2010 version

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...

Benefits of a functional trainer?

I see a lot of you guys like and recommend functional trainers. I'm curious what a functional trainer offers that can't be done with a bench, dumbells and a lay pulldown/low row. I'm more curious than anything since I'm not currently in the market for one.
