  • Any insiders have a clue when supply (bars, plates,etc..) will start to catch up?

    Obviously demand has skyrocketed since March for all things gym-equipment related.

    But how can we still be sitting in August and there are NO signs of light regarding dumbbells, plates, barbells,...

    Had no idea these existed.

    Can you use these directly on a barbell for T-bar rows or do you need another attachment? It looks like there is a little indent that the barbell would rest on and you...
  • Looking for input from hex / trap bar users. Likes / Dislikes, exercises performed

    I'm considering adding trap bar deadlifts to my routine as a low-back friendly deadlift alternative (I no longer conventional DL). I won't be pulling 500, so I think that makes all bars available to...

    The first 24 hours were a bit tough. Midday headaches for a few hours and really couldn't focus on anything. Literally just sat at my computer staring at the screen. But compared to the horror...

    Just a final update.

    Second day of lifting caffeine-free (72 hours no caffeine) was back / posterior and next day was shoulder / quads.

    I met or exceeded all prior workout weights and/or...

    My sleep has sucked for months now (not sure if caffeine or other) and I got sick of the energy and mood peaks & valleys from coffee. Without my coffee I was miserable. And then I always seemed to...
  • My day 2 of no caffeine and first caffeine-free lifting in years

    In process of cutting out coffee / caffeine.

    I work out first thing in morning and would always do a cup of coffee (or previously matcha) 30-45 minutes before working out. I then did another...
  • WTF is with the seemingly real but fake craigslist/ facebook demand

    Listed some excess weights & equipment the last few weeks on craigslist and facebook.

    I've sold stuff for years so I'm use to the usual spam which is easy to spot. Typically the standard "Is this...

    Aren't curls knee flexion while RDLs hip extension so they serve different purposes in working the hamstrings?

    I work out at home so machine leg curls are out. I've seen nordic curl variations by...
  • Any tips to tweak RDL to maximize hammies over glutes?

    I've been dealing with a nagging left glute ache and trying to tweak my RDL to maximize hamstrings over glute involvement. I do hip thrusts for more pure glute.

    Curious if any of you have any...

    Good to know. Does that include even at low weights, like going from 15lb to 16.25lb ?

    Would you buy the ironmaster micro plates over again?

    That looks awesome. Thanks. I'm sure they'll charge an enormous premium.

    It's 1.25lb plates or 2.5lb with a plate on each side. I'm looking for 0.5lb per side.

    I know you can just use one plate and then try to move your hand grip to balance out, but i'd rather have...
  • Anyone microload with ironmasters (not magnetic platemate)?

    I'm considering upgrading to ironmasters (whenever stock eventually returns), but one of the things I like about my current spinlocks is the ability to cheaply & easily microload as I bought wasters...

    Interesting. Never considered those. Feel like balance might be tricky with heavy dumbbells so probably have to use lighter weights. You do them?

    I do weighted step-ups and love them. Not sure your strength, but holding 80s on the side for several sets of proper step-ups would be very challenging.

    Best pad for hip thrusts?

    At the point where my rolled up towels aren't doing an adequate job for barbell hip thrusts.

    So looking for good recommendations of a pad that fully protects, is durable and isn't awkward.
