    Return the one you bought for a full refund, minus shipping and whatever restocking fee they charge and keep the free one. Unless you can sell it on Market Place for at least the same cost. I hate...

    I've got a couple of LED flush mount shop lights in my garage gym. They plug into outlets and can be daisy chained together. Puts out a lot of light and the profile is very thin. Light weight,...

    I have an older version, I think yours allows for unilateral movement in the arms and has more adjustability in setting the bar height than mine. I'm not sure what you mean by not being able to lock...

    I've never used a Smith machine that had the horizontal plane like that, but I agree. I couldn't see much use for it except for lunges. To me it does away with what I feel is the main benefit of...

    That looks nice for the price! Can you do cable crossovers in it? Not sure if it's too narrow to effectively do those, especially at your height. I had toyed with the idea of getting the PowerTec...

    I'd stay away from hex dumbbells if you plan on dropping them. Just about any dumbbell's handle will end up bending if dropped enough, I don't see how the rubber headed ones would be any different. ...

    I don't see that it could really be used for arms. The part the handles adjust on is square tubing and pretty slick. I doubt you could use it as a V-bar to do pushdowns with. I could be wrong, but...

    What is the color pattern of your rack? Will it clash against the rug? Personally I can't squat if I'm wearing both vertical and horizontal stripes...I mean who can? I can't imagine anyone having...

    I think I'd need a higher pulldown machine (which won't fit in my space). Less of an angle on the handle would diminish the contraction I'm getting with the T-bar and seated row movements.
    For me...

    IronMaster Ultimate Row Handle Review

    I finally got to use my new IM Ultimate Row Handle on back day this morning. My initial thoughts are that it could easily replace several attachment handles, like a wide grip or medium grip...

    Nice! I've always preferred to do these standing and I love both the flat and angled sides. I also like they don't have the single holder in the middle which always made gripping with a very close...

    I think I get what you mean here on the leg curls, you get to a point and gravity takes over and the weight loses and basically falls down towards your butt at the top of the movement? If that's the...

    The only other attachment I got for the bench is the preacher curl. I have a dedicated Parabody leg ext/curl machine that I like. If space becomes an issue I can see adding the leg attachment and...

    You're right, it looks like they've upped the prices on several things. The IM dumbbells are up at around $50 from when I bought them and the add-on kit is more expensive too. I can't blame them,...

    I'm talking street prices. The IM2000 pre-covid was $1399 but "on sale" for less than that. Now they removed the "on sale" price. I'm sure they could ask a whole lot more and get it. Someone was...
