    I've been referring to this as the "duct tape" phase of life. Been here for a while.

    On the flip side a shoulder injury that's been bothering me for about 18 months actually seems to be...

    Per above, bumpers work fine. Generally controlled pressing overhead isn't going to blow out your balance or structural/static strength. Smaller muscles in the concentric movement fail first...

    Agree that the first look potentially tough on the hands but I do like the thinness.

    Amazing how far collars have come. The home gym innovation swing has been in full force. Really cool. I...

    Never heard truly bad stuff and they've been in business forever so I figure them as legit. That said, every time I've tried to buy from them the shipping was exorbitant so that nuked it. I'd...

    This is more quality and safety than snob appeal. When it comes to lifting stuff, people sell real crap and Amazon is fine (they carry Rep as I recall which was previously suggested) but carries...

    Agree on this. $649 at Marrs minus shipping and $799 at Titan. I realize shipping is included at Titan but that's $150 of shipping on this bar now. Sucks because straight bar is irritating my left...

    I don't disagree but look at lumber. Large short-term supply/demand imbalance spikes do indeed correct and pricing change is forced on market participants. That said, some of it will stay as the...

    I put my hands on the bar first according to the markings then get under it. Before I unrack I look at my left and right shoulders relative to the markings to ensure equidistance. When I unrack I...

    For what it's worth, historically the above is generally true in that once price increases are established, they are not given back.

    THAT SAID, a case can be made that this time is indeed...

    I can't say for sure but I haven't seen his site online in 8+ months I'd wager. I'm thinking he's retired now and hopefully enjoying himself. I imagine MGM711 would know best maybe. His bars...

    With Crepinsek no longer being made the Elite is the bar to get. Not all SSBs are created equal as the bends and angles DRAMATICALLY influence how a bar performs. Anyone can make a straight bar but...

    Rogue has decent safeties, build and length, so I was comfortable. If you routinely need to bail a loaded bar then full rack and strap safeties are the way to go (or bumpers on...
