    I didn't. Top one came with the original cheap ssb bar. Bottom one is just a regular foam pad off some machine. Honestly, they're both useless. Top one won't do anything unless you lose control...

    So here it is. It works awesome. I assume the camber actually makes it a bit easier to get the concentric going so it might be worth it to try on a straight barbell. Even cheaper as you can pick...

    Yes, 24" deep rack = 23" minimum long pipes. The shorter the pipe the less the pin itself will be in stressed in shear, the more flex you'll get on the pin. Especially with larger holes. Taken to...

    1. yes, but the length of pipe has to be within 1" of the inside depth.
    2. tubing will be fine, it all depends what you're screwing it down to. Make sure you have enough material to hold the...

    I agree with this. Your foot position vs the pull axis is going to be WAY more determinative as to which muscles get activated and by how much.

    I'm building a "JM press bar". I have an idea how to make it better, we'll see how it works. I can't use my SSB because I have the crepinsek and the handles don't come off like the elitefts one. ...

    It should start near the top of the movement. That's what that kickstand is for. Although I agree this one looks like the ROM is very limited, having the weight horns too low.. It's basically...

    Yes, low bar. Not unstable at all. No issue using straight bar in the future apart from the shoulder pain.

    Get a duffalo bar or a marrs bar. Both much cheaper than a belt squat and they should bypass any shoulder issues.

    Belt squats, like reverse hypers, work better if you just leave them loaded all the time. Then you might actually use it. Keep a few hundred (or whatever you use) loaded on the pins. Warm up with...

    Take bar apart and bring shaft to machinist with a lathe. Have them cut 0.020" or so off the diameter where there's knurling. Test grip and adjust if more is needed.

    They went the same way as sorinex for the attachment. But why not use their own drop-in system? I still haven'f figured out why they bother with the keyholes if they can't actually make anything...
