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...

Will horse stall mats alone be enough to protect the concrete floor? Using bumper plates and (at most for now) dropping 500lbs from deadlift height down. Or should I have some plywood underneath the horse stall mats?

Currently I'm struggling with a standard barbell and a bench that tends to wobble from side to side a bit. For this reason I'm a bit scared to up the weight to anything I'm not confident with as it will probably result in an injury. Also have been unable to do squats as I have no rack. Done quite a...
