    I started out making my own lat/pulldown machine. It was not smooth and was a pain to set up and use each time. I did not use it for long.

    I picked up a home gym just for the pulldown feature. It...

    Do you have a marine or boating store nearby? If they sell sailboat stuff, they likely have the cable and can swage eyes at the end for whatever length you want.

    I use a lat-mid row machine, so I...

    Good for him for taking up lifting when he was 90.

    I can only imagine what I will be like in 30 years when I am in my 90s: I will either be still lifting weights or pushing up daisies.

    I used to throw my back out every fall. Seems like the onset of cool weather signaled the onset of back pain. But that was years ago. Someone gave me the book Treat your own Back by Robin McKenzie....

    Would rep, but on spread. :D

    I picked up a 70 lb Kettlebell a couple days ago. The seller had several for sale, but the other, lighter ones went quick. I guess the 70 was too heavy for everyone...

    Where I come from, posting someone's name and city, state, qualifies as doxxing. That is usually enough info to identify a person. Not cool. If you were a standup guy, you would edit your post above...

    Depends if you are buying or selling. If you are buying, a good deal is 50 cents/pound, but I have paid less and other times more than that.

    I would look for a nylon lifting sling or strap. Wrap it around your bar and attach the carabiner to the strap. The good ones will hold a ton (2000 lbs) or more.

    Here is an example:...

    Also, read the Sticky: Belts - A Comprehensive Guide



    Good advice, although I disagree about avoiding nylon belts. I use a multiply nylon belt for training and a leather one for competitions....

    If you have been lifting without a belt, I suggest continuing without a belt until you can get one that has the right shape. I only wear a belt when I am lifting near my 1RM.

    Was it for WMMS? I grew up outside Cleveland in the early 70s. That was the radio station to listen to.

    Where are you located?

    I have a single 100 that is USA marked. I am in Tennessee. Shipping may be prohibitive unless it can hitch a ride somehow.

    That is a lot for Hoist DBs. I bought my 45 lb Hoist set with stand for $45. I've seen the $75 lb Hoist DBs go for $100 to 150 in my area.
