    Experience with them has been good, but limited availability and ETA dates on all of their equipment continuously being forced back has pushed me away from the company. 5 months ago I bought two of...

    If I'm doing anything with lower body, I'll do some kettlebell swings (45lb kb) for about a minute straight. Upper body usually consists of a bunch of band movements to loosen things up. Aside from...

    Took a quick dive through examine(dot)com and found no substantial indicators of energy improvement. Creatine is amazing for many things; a morning stimulant doesn't seem to be one of those things. I...

    Happy to hear. Good luck with your goals and stay safe! It's easy to chase numbers, but sometimes we've gotta sit back and listen to the body.

    Definitely some merit to this post. I haven't had the luxury of owning a belt squat machine, but when I've used one I noticed a ton of a carryover to my sumo deadlifts and back squats. I squat low...

    Shot in the dark here, but it sounds like tendons and ligaments to me. You mention the imbalances being a non-factor until you're fatigued after a few sets in. If it was purely a muscular imbalance...

    I treat my forearms the same way I do my calves - just blow 'em up. As much weight and as many reps + sets as possible until failure. Wrist rolls, hammer curls, reverse curls, and various...

    Good tip, but I'd counter by saying he could learn to rest the dbs on the inside or outside of the plates instead of the handle. That's what I've always done at least; I like to point the handles...

    I don't like isolated ab work, but admittedly I'll do hanging knee raises, heavy kettlebell twists, and occasionally things like dragon flags. It all feels pointless to me. Have a hard time believing...

    I've assembled my entire home gym during this bs as well. Started with concrete plates and a wooden half rack. I've since upgraded and purchased just about everything I need in the past 5 months, but...

    Large side delts, traps, and lats with a narrow waist are what will give someone that 'superhero' V shape. That said, as a small female you should not shy away from said movements just because you...
  • Loadable Dumbbells - Worth Considering?

    Currently have some garbage 1'' adjustable handles that I'm looking to replace. Need more standard plates for them and I'd rather that money be going towards better quality olympic pairs instead....

    You could consider emailing FantasticNutrition for a sample of their whey. I checked their website and it doesn't appear they have any listed, but I know they were selling them roughly 5 months ago....

    I agree with those that mentioned bands. Body weight makes a huge difference on pull-ups and I was surprised to see how just a few pounds of band assistance at the bottom increased the amount of reps...

    I've used one before and never felt comfortable with it. I also squat very wide in a low bar position. Let's face it; no walkout is ever exactly the same. Sometimes we'll be a few smidges forward or...

    Could be the case. I also wouldn't rule out my bar being the main culprit. I'll take the plates over to my brother's this week and see how they get along with his Ohio Power Bar. How long has it been...

    Final Update: The store isn't bogus and I'll edit a few posts to reflect that. I received my plates today and everything went smoothly after staying in contact with their sales rep. I was shown proof...

    Not familiar with Intek and it doesn't appear that they have any guaranteed weight tolerances? Don't think their irons are machined either. Overall, I intended to stick as close to $200 per 45lb pair...

    Thanks, I'll be sure to keep my eyes on their inventory. I think I have stumbled upon their store a few times before when searching for Ivanko and Troy prices anyway. Happy to hear you can vouch for...

    Shilling for Troy? Wasn't my intention at all. Aside from that, thank you for digging up that information. I really appreciate it. I also just noticed that their social media links all directed to...
