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.

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.

Portable Rubber Mats for Deadlift at Commercial Gym?

Saw this today on their Facebook/Instagram account and it looks pretty interesting so curious to see what others here think about it. My initial thought is its a cool idea but not worth the huge price tag it'll probably have with it coming from westside. https://imgur.com/a/aOB5Z...

looking for a 45" hyper

Anybody have any recommendations, looking for 250-350 range which i know isn't a huge budget, I was going to go with a GHD but i figure with a 45hyper I know I like to use(at old commercial gym) and maybe a GH roller, that would be more bang for my buck.
