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

This is a collaborative effort from the equipment forum members. The 2008 edition has a lot of broken links and rather than keep that one going we decided to start a new one. First let’s have a few definitions to clear up some confusion. Squat Stands: These are probably the most useless...

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...

Vintage Iron Thread

Hi All, I read a post a few weeks ago in which SnowOne and DonForeman suggested a vintage iron thread to discuss/identify old plates.

Powerblock Commercial Pro. Dissapointed.

Bit the bullet and bought a set of commercial pro 50 dumbbells and I'm feeling really ripped off right now. The problem is the so called steel knurled handles, and the only reason to buy these ( like $200 extra ) are utter garbage. Just picture the cheapest feeling Walmart jobby kids weights...

My rack area is pretty dark and it's annoying. Any ideas for a good lighting solution I could attach to the rack. Rack is 3x3 and top mounting would be best. I don't mind running an extension cord up the side. I'm not wiring another light in my ceiling, which is obviously the best solution....

I wonder why I can't fit the lock into the very bottom slot? Is that normal? Any advice? Is it okay to lift with no lock? I do that if I want the lever bar to go as low as possible. The only thing I'm worried about though is that it could damage the weight rack? Let me know your thoughts. Also,...
