    Nothing against the assault bike, but I don't see the point in using something that makes me not want to use it. It sounds like you dread using it, so why use it when you can do something else...

    If you can't find a used set, that seems like a decent price, and buying direct from the manufacturer is always a plus in my books. IMO they're worth the retail price as long as you use them.

    Nah, stomach flu would be equipment you find in Walmart like Weider, Marcy, etc. Stuff that's cheap but can be adequate to use, if not easily outgrown. Cancer is cheap, half-assed (and in some cases,...

    Practice good form before practicing "ass to grass". Focus on maintaining your bracing, and if you're bracing as best you can, try improving your hamstring and ankle mobility.

    Between the two, I'd go for the Fitness Reality one. But if you're considering a rack like that, you might as well go for the Iron Factory rack, which is made by Northern Lights and sold through...

    Not a fan of that design. The pulleys don't move as smoothly on the square tubing in my (limited) experience. Maybe it would be fine if you greased the hell out of the guideposts..

    Buy a sled and some weight plates. Push or pull on grass, turf, or pavement to change it up, add plates to increase intensity.

    Rower would be my second option (especially in the winter/rain/etc).
