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...

New bench suggestions

Hi. I’ve been using gorrila sports universal workstation for a few months now. I have maxed the leg curler weight limit. My biggest gripe with it is the rack holds the barbell exactly where I’d like to put my hands for a bench press, therefore I usually go for a wide grip and I think that’s causing...

Fixing slop in York B&R 1.0 sleeves

No idea where to ask this - ab belt mechanics

Okay, so the electricity gets my abs to flex, easy. But are the sensations that I get of LOCALIZED tenseness a result of my own muscle locations, or the directional nature of the electricity itself. I ask because the sensation in the center of my abs is off center. If it's my natural center...
