    My Regupol flooring didn’t have any smell.
    As to a space around the edges, mine is pushed under the baseboards so there may be some space but I didn’t really plan for it. Most of the baseboard is...

    Same here. I still have it , it just rarely gets used because of having to set it up. If I had a spot that I could leave the bar in it and had the room to use it there maybe it would see more use.

    My first choice is an olympic bar and plates. If you're not able to find them available immediately, i would wait until they're available , this equipment shortage won't last forever.

    It wasn't either of your 2 choices of row machines but my vote for a row is also the seated mid row. It's adjustable to fit a wide range of people from short to tall and I felt more work in my back...
