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.

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...

Got some standard sized plates I want to sell but would like to paint them because they're old and there's some rust spots. I'm thinking of just using a rustoleum spray paint. Just thought I'd see if anyone here has done anything similar and if you have any insight on the type of paint.

vertical leg press suggestions?

I've never used one, so not sure what to look for while shopping around. I know that I like the price range compared to leg press/hack machines, and I know I like the smaller footprint. Does the range of motion still feel 'natural'?
