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...

Hello, Does anybody know what this is called or where I can find one? Somebody donated it to the juvenile facility that I work in. It's similar to a power twister, but doesn't kill my elbow. Any help would be great! Thanks!

Cheap olympic plates other than from Dick's?

Are there any places that even come close to Dick's price for weight plates? I'm still considering getting them there but the smaller 45 plates seem like they'd inhibit my deadlifting potential so if I could pay slightly more for better plates, I'd prefer that. Any feedback on the size of...
