    Thanks.
    I ended up using setting 3 (high bar squat) and 4 (longest camber) for first run with it. I liked it, kind of a mini spider bar feel to it.

    Transformer bar - best settings?

    I picked up a transformer bar a few weeks ago and I'm looking for ideas for about 4-5 settings to use and throw into my rotation. Mostly for 1RM attempts (conjugate max effort). For rep work I can...

    All my racks have been 30". And most have included a monolift. Never had any problems.

    You need a shaft with some kind of keyway, D flat... otherwise the flywheel will just spin around it on reversal. Almost no way just tightening it will be enough.

    No, you need a patent in each country. It all becomes very expensive.

    This, and only this. Also, you can't apply for a patent if you've shown your invention publicly already. Patent has to come first.

    First off is is 3/16" coated to 1/4" or 1/8" coated to 3/16"? Also, even more important, is it 7x7 or 7x19 construction? 7x7 cable is what is sold at home depot and the like, and it's only good for...

    I didn't. Top one came with the original cheap ssb bar. Bottom one is just a regular foam pad off some machine. Honestly, they're both useless. Top one won't do anything unless you lose control...

    So here it is. It works awesome. I assume the camber actually makes it a bit easier to get the concentric going so it might be worth it to try on a straight barbell. Even cheaper as you can pick...

    Yes, 24" deep rack = 23" minimum long pipes. The shorter the pipe the less the pin itself will be in stressed in shear, the more flex you'll get on the pin. Especially with larger holes. Taken to...

    1. yes, but the length of pipe has to be within 1" of the inside depth.
    2. tubing will be fine, it all depends what you're screwing it down to. Make sure you have enough material to hold the...

    I'm building a "JM press bar". I have an idea how to make it better, we'll see how it works. I can't use my SSB because I have the crepinsek and the handles don't come off like the elitefts one. ...

    For the front squats you could get a harness (titan has one dirt cheap). Would also let you do zerchers without actually using your arms.

    Yes, low bar. Not unstable at all. No issue using straight bar in the future apart from the shoulder pain.

    Get a duffalo bar or a marrs bar. Both much cheaper than a belt squat and they should bypass any shoulder issues.
