    On spread.

    Interesting video. At 66 I am lifting as much as I want to. I like the way he ends the video saying, "When you die, die well."

    That is a lot of plastic that rubbed off onto the bar. And the knurling looks fairly worn in that area.

    The fasteners are not counter-sunk far enough below the surface of the Titan pads. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

    Report back in a year with how the new pads are holding up. The 3D printer...

    Don't use blocks to raise a flat bench. Too unstable and likely to result in bad outcomes.

    That Fitness Reality 2000 XL is a lightweight, consumer quality bench. I would buy that if all you plan...

    If it fits in your program, it is worth getting a bike.

    I have a vintage Schwinn Airdyne at home and another one at my office. The office Airdyne has a reading stand. On weekends I do Tabata...

    25 kg is the minimum to consider. I would not consider any other adjustable dumbbells other than PowerBlocks and IronMasters. Cheaper adjustable DBs often have plastic parts subject to failure. Then...

    Embedded pic for you.

    The group shot is a start. Pics of each size, front and back, would be even better.

    An important consideration is if you are the type of lifter who may drop the dumbbells after a lift. I don't always gently place my dumbbells on the floor after a tiring set.

    They are worth it. I have two pairs of the 75 lb IronMasters and one pair of 45 Hoist (original version of IM). I have these in my mini gym in my garage, along with a 90 lb set of Power Blocks. Those...

    What do you mean they don't fit on the rack? Is the handle too short to fit on the rails? Is there not enough room to fit the DBs side-by-side on the rack? Is there not enough room above the DBs to...

    ^^^^ This.

    I have the height of the safeties in my rack set so that the bar is about 1-1/2 inches above the safeties when I hit proper depth. A quick side-glance tells me if I am as deep as I...

    The mirror is nice, but it is a crutch. As part of your setup you should feel if the bar is in balance. If the bar feels solid on the back and your hands feel like they are even, you are good to go....

    Dips rock! My problem is, after I get good with them, I slack off. Then I go through the pain of starting over again.
