    Did you try to put the lever arm at the bottom then wrap a chain around the bar with an EZ-Curl cable attachment to the other end and try doing skull crushers that way?

    I've got an older Body Solid leg press/hack squat combo. It doesn't do either of them particularly well but it's serviceable enough for my needs. The most I've been able to fit on the leg press has...

    I got my Rogue parallel grip landmine handle like Urban bought a couple of weeks ago. I went with the normal grip handle, not the fat grip. I'm still going to have to use 35s on it unless I stand...

    Didn't know those have become rare LOL. I have a set sitting in my accessories bin, used them twice, hated them. Might put them on FB Market Place. I couldn't deal with the thin metal bar under...

    If the ability to do pullovers are all you're missing, when I had PowerBlocks I got three different spin lock handles that would top out at 60lbs, 80lbs, and 100lbs from NY Barbells. Just one of...

    For me variety in my training is the key. If all I could ever do is barbell squats or barbell presses, I'd get so bored I'd quit. You have the rack and dumbells, I'd have to throw in a leverage...

    I agree, I think this is the future of home gyms and "training studios". Maybe not this particular product, but something like it certainly will. For big city/small footprint living it fits the...

    That was a glowing review. I think he's right, that looks to be the future of home gyms, at least something along that line. Very true when he says that most people don't care about power racks and...

    I'm in the same boat as you. It's probably the least used piece in my gym when you consider what it's designed for. I pretty much use it as a barbell holder for work outside of the rack, and a...

    That's nice looking. I just watched a review on it. Not a bad price either. Did you go with the fat grip handles or standard? I like how much it's offset, looks like you can comfortably use 45s...

    Probably going to get the landmine attachment from IronMaster when I get my IM2000. Is that the T-Bar handle that's acting as a kind of jack for the plate end? Looks like it might just spin around...

    I used to do walking lunges with a curl bar at an old Bally's I worked out at. I only used the curl bar because it was short enough to put into place on my traps/rear delts and walk through a...

    I've had my IronMasters 5-120 lb set now for well over a month and love them. I'm now certain I'll sell off my hex dumbbell set and get a 5-50 lb PowerBlock set. Probably the one without the adder...

    I bought the SuperBench Pro just before the pandemic. I love it. I did put the wheels on the other end. I don't want anything under my feet when I'm kneeing up dumbbells and it works just fine. ...

    The leverage dip was an attachment I was considering, but the pictures I've seen of it appears like you need to use it standing up. Every dip machine I've ever used was seated and had a seatbelt to...

    I can't comment on the BodySolid as I've never used one. I do have the PowerTec leverage gym, a much older model, and I don't need any additional weights to hold it down or make it steadier. I used...

    It looks like the Bowflex PR1000 is $599 and the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE is $1499. It appears that the Xtreme 2 SE has many more places to potentially hang your clothes on than the PR1000 does. I'd...

    The few commercial functional trainers that I've used in gyms I didn't care for. The spacing between them was too narrow for me to feel I was effectively doing the cable cross-over movement. I...

    Yes, that's what I had, although mine was an older model. My dislikes were I could easily max out the 600lb limit. I saw videos of Lee Priest using it and adding an Olympic bar behind it and adding...

    I currently have an older model Parabody leg press/hack squat combo. Uses the plastic rollers. It's honestly fine for leg presses. The foot plate is a little smaller than most commercial models so...
