    So far, we'll probably see alot of stuff like this for a while until people give up on trying to recoup those COVID impulse buys.

    Went with engineered hardwood flooring, it's like a hybrid between laminate and actual wood. So it's only 1/4" thick with little to no compression, thought it would be a great top for squatting given...

    Yeah, but most people use cheapo stained plywood on top ;)



    Thanks!

    Well here is the finished product, my COVID olympic weightlifting platform is pretty much done. Got some little tidying up to do, might reinforce the corner tops and have black sealant for the gaps...

    Can't vouch for this thing, but I will say I absolutely loved the cable-stack version at my local gym. From a quick glance it's either missing a seat belt to help keep you down, or like the machine I...

    Thinking about doing this as well if the rates are still rock bottom, chop my mortgage down to a 15yr if possible.

    Definitely, but it's another one of those 'easy fix' situations to shorten the cable to the length that you specifically need. Really, anyone with a power rack and a little ingenuity should be able...

    The possibilities are endless, it's a game of inches with getting movements to feel right so I found myself tinkering with the leverage gym ALOT before it felt right. Similar to what I experienced...

    Honestly, I've wondered about the stability from the very beginning, but I figured REP doesn't typically put out stuff that's completely unusable like Titan so maybe I was mistaken. But it seems like...

    Still seeing a few of these beauties though, that price! $5K for less than $500 worth of equipment in a normal market.

    Planned on doing black, but I'm thinking about panting a red strip along the very bottom of the sides to tie the room together. Beautiful day out, might run to grab the last pieces of wood and knock...

    The height shouldn't be an issue, the side cross-members seem like they can be mounted lower which would drop the pull-up bar down. I'm not too concerned with the color, I don't personally understand...

    True, with the IM bench you could probably just slide the seat in too (which works surprisingly well).

    But it's not a huge deal to me just using it without a backrest, did the same with my...

    No worries, great review BTW!

    It's just an all-around awesome tool to have lying around. The multitude of lifts and space saving of working the high/low pulley onto the leverage arm rocks. Like...

    For a upright seated pressing I find it easier to just lay the bench flat and avoid the backrest altogether.

    Edit: But it's a phenomenal companion to a rack setup, also makes me feel better to...

    I'm very happy with the IronMaster Pro as well. It will outperform any pop-pin or ladder style bench in terms of adjust-ability, and outside of military press I don't even use the seat for regular...

    That's good to hear! My Powerlifting buddy just happen to drop by and was liking the feel of the wood top which was encouraging. It's more of a mat/textured surface so I feel like it will grip well...

    Thanks! Think I've settled on a wood frame to box in the mats, figure that will help keep everything in place and I can dress up the top with a thinner metal trim if needed. Also thinking about...
