    I agree, if going down the hand gripper route then The CoC grippers are the best I've tried, but I rarely use them any more, I get most of the same benefits from Farmer's carries and thick grip bar...

    This is purely a personal opinion, I had the standard Rml 390, I have a thing about rack stability, without additional bracing, despite being bolted down there was too much lateral sway for my...

    Very nice, you have everything you need, as you've already identified the bench is the weak point, as soon as the equipment buying madness settles down, I'd definitely recommend upgrading the Bench.

    Regupol rolled rubber, I have it in my set up, no smell at all.

    Another vote for Regupol, it was a breeze to instal, I didn't glue it down, just used double sided flooring tape on all the seems and it's never shifted one iota.

    I agree definitely go with the...

    Same here, I don't currently have any pieces that are 20 years old, but I agree used commercial is the way to go, whilst I have no doubt in a home gym a lat machine designed for home use will...

    If you want a commercial quality lat machine, FWIW, my advice would be to look out for a used model, I suspect not all commercial gyms will survive the Covid lock down, even if they're able to reopen...
