    That Stairclimber is an interesting unit. I didn't realize it is mechanical. How's the resistance when using it fast in a running motion?

    One of my dream (non existent?) machines is a Stairclimber...

    Here's a tip:
    Clean and lubricate all barbell sleeves, inner ring on plates, cables, pullies etc.

    I recently did this using silicone spray lubricant, and now plates slide on barbells with zero...

    I'm in a very similar situation, except that the whole Virus situation put a stop to my plans.
    I'm at a point where I would need to sacrifice another bedroom for gym equipment, and the house...

    I had a long, hard look at both of those (only tried Panatta), and ultimately decided on neither due to space requirement and price.
    How much space do you have? These two machines are large in...

    I often go to Panatta website for a bit of window shopping.
    Easy method is to select ALL the machines, and I do covet ALL of them, but the real challenge is to select fewest Panatta machines for a...

    Yes, they are all sideways. It could be that when taking the pictures you are holding the phone somewhere in between horizontal and vertical, so they look straight to you, but get interpreted...

    Very nice plates. How much weight in total did you get?
    I wouldn't want to pick that 100 when it's laying flush on the floor. ;)

    I've never seen that lunge machine before. Very interesting.
    I couldn't find a video of it in use, but I suppose it's this type of movement:

    So much space. So many possibilities to fill it with equipment.
    I'd likely go bankrupt in doing so if I had that much space available.

    Can you do movements like standing over-head press with...

    Good on him for putting in the work, but the result is rather ugly.

    When I see how much labor, material and equipment is required, I for one am grateful that Chinese are willing to do it so...

    Yes, please!
    That's pretty much my heart's desire leg machine.
    Every other machine of that type is behemoth.

    A video of it in action would be greatly appreciated.

    I just wish you would start...

    For sure. I do lunges and split squats every time I work the legs.

    Not to stray too far away from the topic,
    I can imagine how one could do a lunge or a split squat using one of these pendulum...

    Yeah, I know. I could, sort of, deal more easily with a machine that is long but narrow.
    I've maxed up on space in the house already, and only way to get one of these is to sacrifice another...

    I've also started looking at these.
    At first I wanted a (horizontal) leg press as a barbell-squat alternative, but the size and price is making me hesitate.

    The pulling motion is what's most concerning about that machine.
    You'd be pulling with your knees, and anything above mildest resistance could be stressful to the joints and ligaments.

    That thing looks very Bowflex-y to me.
