    One thing I've done for years to keep the light end of the bar in place, is to jack the bar angle up (use blocks or better yet, a platform under the weighted end). Nothing terribly tall, you're just...

    You've made good use of that small space, and the new setup looks great! I'm working with a super small area as well for lifting, so I understand your pain. I just wish my setup was a nice as yours....

    Very cool! First time I've seen one of those as well. Just imagine the confusion a piece like that would create at the typical gym. Crossfitters would probably sit on it sideways and attempt to...

    WOW! That's like stepping back into a time machine. Such a change of pace to see people actually taking care of the gym equipment they purchase. Too many of those wonderful "deals" off CL and FB...

    Even if that person had set the safeties, Smith machines often leave too big of a gap between settings. Either the bar is off your chest by "X" number of inches, or you move the safety down one notch...

    An electric hoist would be sweet for heavy negatives! I used to use the smith machine for this purpose at my local gym, but you're absolutely correct about having to lift the weight back into it's...

    Are you saying that the shaft which this knob attaches to also has the star shape on the end, or is it just a simple round shaft? I'd be looking to epoxy a generic knob on or get one with a set...
