    Did them for a while and thought they were improving my grip. Forearm tendinitis set in. Stopped using them and I don't think I'll ever start again. Not worth it. Just pulling heavy weight with pull...

    How heavy are your dumbbells and how much weight do you have to put on your bar? I would do barbell deadlifts and barbell clean and press as part of a program if you have plates to put on your bar....

    This is key. You can probably use any plates outdoors if you store them out of the elements when not in use. Otherwise, go with whatever is cheapest and plan for them to deteriorate (rubber/urethane)...

    This might be the way to go. I would find some like these that are intended for outdoor use:

    I would check with the manufacturer get their thoughts on your intended use. I don't think urethane coated plates are intended for extended outdoor use.

    I would never have time for that. I can't even get in as many working sets as I'd like with adequate rest. That's a me problem, but doing sets of 25 before your workout sounds like junk volume that...

    Any change to your initial impressions? Looks like these are available to order again. I'll probably hold off but curious to know if you are still liking them. No need for a detailed write-up, though...

    3-in-1 and Tri-Flo are my go-to lubricants. Either should work. Though you may need to take it apart and clean with a brush if there is considerable rust. If you can.

    Not quite. Gym equipment sales skyrocketed during the pandemic. None of the equipment manufacturers laid off employees involved with production and QC. Maybe they cut some folks running their...

    Provided shipping is reasonable, I might be picking up the Rogue-manufactured Kabuki Kadillac bar. Love that they added knurl to the handles. Out of stock right now.

    There are plenty of great novice programs to choose from. Fierce 5 is a good example. I strongly recommend doing one of those instead of rolling your own.

    Thanks for that video. It makes the floor more doable. The immediate drawback I'm seeing with the carabiners and straps is the vest swings when I try to attach plates in the air. Again, no problem...

    Good timing with this question. I just bought the EZ-Vest Max plus the XT Sleeves, which are much shorter and can accommodate one not overly thick iron plate on each sleeve:

    I don't understand how your post title correlates with the fact that your wife called you a wetback, but I shower everyday I work out, which is 5-6 times per week. On the other 1-2 days, I often grab...

    Sounds like a good call to keep the Legend and sell the Rogue. A lot more likely you'll have seller's remorse about the Legend IMO and it's not as redundant with the Irwin.

    Voted Rogue because you'll probably do well selling it used. You might not get what you want for the Legend bench even though it's worth it.

    Also, for me, the cost of shipping from Legend has been...

    Sounds like you've had all the bars I'm looking at. I don't know much about Ivanko knurl. Do you have any recollection to how it felt vs what you experienced with Vulcan Strength? Similarly...

    Why in the fukk would anyone eat 25 eggs every day? This is already such an edge case that the study has no relevance to people with more mainstream diets.

    Also, did not read.

    Thanks for the measurement. 51.5" is the same as my current bars (and standard?). Should work fine. My rack is 49" though so narrower would be a no-go. Good info.
