    +1. Any type of bench press on the Smith always made my elbow joints scream and didn't work well with my tendency for shoulder impingement either. I like it for standing calf raise, shrugs and a...

    Someone had a C2 rower posted that was dripping wet. I messaged and asked if he had washed it and he replied that he soaked it down with a hose to clean off the dust. JFC. Some people just really...

    Depends on your frame I think. I'm good with 10-12" pads, but find the 14" to interfere with my ROM for some lifts.

    Not much gets me into NYC, but I saw this Prime bench on FB Marketplace and couldn't pass it up. It came with the elbow pads also.

    I would occasionally use the one at LAF just because it was there, but I usually did them on the Smith or occasionally on the 45-degree leg press. Now that I've abandoned commercial gyms, I do...

    Marcy, Weider, Gold's Gym, Force USA, etc. are all poorly made. You won't find a good Smith machine new in the $1,500 range. You can, however, a find a good one used for that price.

    I get that these are $2k even used, but in my eyes this is worth ~$100 in its current state. I'd have it repaired if I wanted to get more for it.

    p.s. Looks more suited to a sex dungeon.

    Good, non-calibrated plates are typically within 3% of their labeled weights, so 1-lb on a 45 isn't worth a second thought. In my sampling of about 15,000 lbs of plates, I found that my cheap plates...

    The bag should weigh at least 1/2 your body weight. There are a number of good bags out there from Title, Ringside, Outslayer, Fairtex, etc. I would stay away from Everlast.

    I have a 2-tier dumbbell rack for sale and the ad explicitly states that no weights are included. Inevitably, I have had several people ask: "Are the weights included?"
