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...

Thumbs down Transformer Bar Review - Bar of Sketch

I received the bar on the 9th of Feb and I hate to say I'm not too impressed. It was thrown in a box, with only foam balls on the handles for protection, and all corners of the box had a holes. Hopeful nothing was tarnished from the shipment, I was way wrong. The adjustable notches had a gash...

Football or Buffalo bar for shoulder issues?

I reinjured my shoulder a couple of months ago and thought I could just ease up and train through it. Of course that didn't work out and now I'm in rest mode. Bench press is probably one of the last things I'll get back to, and based on previous experience close-grip is going to be better to start....
