    I don't have a pic, I'll try to remember to take one over the weekend. It's just a bolt through gate hook, the advantage over a conventional J hook is that it doesn't extend as low, so the SSB sits...

    I picked up a pair of 1" gate hooks and bolted them into the top hole of my Legend 3133, I never use the top holes anyway, they keep the SSB out of the way and at less than $20 it's a relatively...

    Personally for the base frame I like the more traditional colours, black, white or silver. I think padding/ upholstery is the place to add stronger complimentary colours.

    I also like to add a...

    Congrats, I don't think you'll regret your decision, a rack of dumbbells is so convenient. My set of Watson db's go from 4kg (8.8lb) to 35kg (77lb), 4kg to 10kg in 1kg increments and 10kg to 35kg in...

    Well you know what you're getting with Legend, bio-mechanically it will be sound, they have had a few QC issues recently, but there's not much to go wrong with a SS machine.

    Yes, a 7 minute 2000m is a real benchmark, any non rower doesn't appreciate how much effort is required to get below 8 minutes, let alone 7, even back in the day I never broke 7 minutes 20.

    I...

    The resistance setting has little to do with it, it's about effort, even International class rowers rarely place the resistance level at it's highest setting.

    You should be attempting to generate...

    I don't have the KK row bench, but I do have a couple of Custom Kit benches, flat and adjustable superb build quality and great padding/upholstery.

    I'm sure Christian would add wheels for an...

    All of my Panatta machines are plate loaded, as good as the Panatta selectorised machines feel, IMO the plate load are superior in most cases, particularly the deltoid Press, however I believe...

    Surely the weight horns are upside down, they should be angled up.

    It's so difficult to compare machines that were in their day considered to be the best with their new counterparts. Many of these companies no longer exist, Flex, Nebula etc, some have been swallowed...

    Mostly here on BB.Com, occasionally on two other lifting forums. I have a page on LinkedIn for information purposes, but I never interact on the site.

    Yes I have a 5lb rectangular weight that sits on top of a weight stack, I think it's from Body Solid, I'm sure I've also seen something similar on the Inspire Fitness site.

    I have yet to see any of the Predator units in person, but they certainly have some interesting looking pieces.

    I had the Watson Pendulum Squat for a few years, I can't say I particularly liked...

    I did a carpentry and joinery apprenticeship after leaving school, the first guy I worked with gave me a few pearls of wisdom. Keep your tools sharp, blunt tools are dangerous. More haste, less...

    It's really not a great time to be setting up a home gym, the used market is crazy and new equipment is still in short supply, having said this, given your budget is modest I think there are still...

    Agree with this ^^^, alternatively if you can remove the bolt completely, take the measurements and get a replacement generic bolt of the same size, the unit is almost certainly manufactured in...

    Thank's, it's taken me over 20 years to put my gym together. Prime is expensive, I've never had a quote for any of their equipment, I can't see shipping being anything but pricey. Staffs Fitness are...
