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...

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

Buffalo Bar Vs Duffalo Bar Comparison

So today I was able to compare both Buffalo Bar and Duffalo Bar side by side and performed a number of lifts, back to back, to see how the two compared. To start, the visual differences between the two is the Duffalo Bar is noticeably more bent/cambered. I would say it's a good 2-3 inches...

I just bought a 50lb rubber encased dumbbell, but it came with a slightly loose head. Is it safe? Can the head fall off? I haven't been able to find how these are made, so I have no idea if the head is liable to fall off (and onto my own head). It was expensive and there is no easy way to return...

So the gym at my HOA has one Smith machine which we use for bench press, squats, deadlifts--basically all the barbell lifts. Most of us don't use the Smith part, just the safety hooks and such (I don't know what they're called; I guess it's a combined Smith machine/squat rack, and it also does...
