    Why is a 30 degree angle better? Sorry for the dumb question but I'm more a recovering crossfitter than being deeply knowledgeable about machines.

    If so, that seems to favor the Watson some too...

    I'm not sure why there isn't more love for the Prime FT here. I realize partly it is a question of geography and being able to easily demo one of their units but if you can swing a trip to Prime (or...

    Thanks, Jonathan! It will come at the expense of something else (probably some future Panatta gear) but appreciate the confirmation on the EliteFTS one.

    Your gym is totally an inspiration. As we...

    Thanks for the recommendations on Regupol. Not doing any tumbling or martial arts, just want something that is nice and cushioned for lunges and ab work and plyometrics. Still very confused how there...

    Well I'm going to look into this, just don't want it in black (tends to attract mosquitos more and just don't like the look). My impression on the basic rolled rubber type for super cheap was that it...

    Flooring - it can't really be this much, right?

    I was looking through the PLAE options on Rogue's site. It's over $1000 per 100 sq feet for most colors. I assume the Ecore product Sorinex carries would be similar but I haven't checked pricing.

  • Hack Squats - EliteFTS vs. Watson vs. Atlantis

    I'm in the market for a hack squat and I think I've narrowed it down to these three brands.

    I really like the adjustable angle (30-70 degrees) and adjustable foot plate on the Watson one,...

    I didn't find it that hard to learn to use them without bumping into the ends. I'd say it forces a little better technique (smoothness) and in exchange increases the demand on your core a bit as you...

    I have the slides for mine. They are fun and worth the money, especially if you are interested in moving to on the water rowing. Forces a lot more smoothness through the stroke. That said, they will...

    Yes, I did go to the gym there but the T Bar row I was playing with was in the actual sales showroom with hardwood floor so I was a bit more delicate there. I also happened to hit a day with a huge...

    I haven't yet. Didn't think the folks in the Watson showroom or the other gyms I've tried out chest supported t-bar rows in would appreciate that. But once I have one and set it up how I want I will...

    I have pretty bad sciatica from L5S1 herniation and have noticed the same thing with the T-Bar. The best one I've found is the Watson Animal but it is still asymmetric for the lift-off. I haven't...

    Yeah, the Prime one was awesome. Got to play with it a bit at their showroom the other week. I was expecting it to feel a bit wobbly given that it is a rotating, adjustable steel tube holding it up...

    I just spent two days at Prime for one of the N1 classes, using the machines extensively. They are awesome. I'm curious how you feel about some of their pieces vs. Panatta if you've had a chance to...

    To be clear, I can definitely get 10+ unassisted pullups in a normal pull-up grip but as soon as I go to a widegrip lat pulldown angle that changes dramatically.

    But yeah, there's a bit of extra...

    Lat Pulldowns vs. Assisted Pullup machines

    This is probably a dumb question but as I plan my next equipment orders I'm considering whether I want both an assisted pullup machine and/ or a lat pulldown.

    For better or worse, my max lat...

    Not sure if you are set on DB trays but as a cheap and quick solution you could consider a set of PowerHooks. They may not look great but I'm pretty fond of mine and they make it easy to re-rack the...

    I'd be very interested in jammer arms if they had a feature like a FreeMotion FT or the Prime FT where you could adjust the convergence/ divergence angle of the arms. I believe Vase7 has some sort of...

    Anyone know the rough price-point of an Armored BaseCamp for comparison?

    Oh, I never realized that was an option. Thanks! But definitely I'd put down something thicker around the benches and barbell area to dampen heavier stuff being dropped.
