After he was gone for 5 min i messaged him and said if he wants to discuss a lower price he shouldn't do that in person. Its disrespectful.

    I leave to go home and this state trooper pulls in front of me a few streets from where i met the douche. He stops at a green light. Forcing me to stop. He doesnt go thru until its yellow forcing me to be stuck at a red light. He didnt turn he went straight thru after stopping. Was prob hoping i hit him or ran a red light. I thought about reporting him for trying to cause an accident (i wasnt on the interstate so im sure it was the same douche) but i didnt. He'll get his karma.

    I sold the plates for my asking price a few days later.
    Some unprofessional, immature, and petty **** that guy pulled.

    Re the haggling, if my ad says firm or you're plan is to lowball me I expect any attempt at negotiation to be done via online because I really, really detest having my time wasted. And if you already said "I'll take it" then you have already accepted my price and if you show up with $5 less, you can pound sound just for trying to con me.
    At least its repairable. If the guy is that immoral, imagine the corners he cuts on the job.

    The haggling is a pain but equally irritating are the games associated with it. If someone flat up said "would you take $x less" I would appreciate the honesty, rather than the silly bill disappearing game.

    Once I was prepared to buy an item with the full cash on hand, but on a whim I once asked a seller "would you consider a lower price or are you firm?" and the guy said "you know what, I'll take $20 off".

    I have a box of old cables and such that I keep around for projects, so it was an easy repair. Heck, I would have still bought it knowing the cable was cut. I was just irritated that he scammed me and then abused his badge to boot.

    The Rogue Donkey arrived and is finally assembled.

    Here are a few thoughts and observations:

    1. It’s a huge piece of equipment and very heavy (500 lbs);

    2. Expect to spend a few hours on assembly;

    3. When you do glute ham raises on this piece you need to place your knees closer to the top of the arch of the pad, you cannot allow your knees to “fall through” due to metal plate the pad is attached to. As a result, the movement is more difficult. Not a bad thing, just something to be aware of. If you are new to GHD’s, you will probably want to use band assistance to start;

    4. The reverse hyper is functionally the same / very similar to the Rogue RH-2. However, due to the split pad you need to experiment with your body position to find a comfortable groove;

    5. I didn’t have any stability issues with my Rogue RH-2 or Rogue Abram GHD 2.0, but needless to say this machine is extremely stable;

    6. The main reason for the upgrade is to save space so I could add another piece. I was able to do that, so I am happy. If you have the space, the RH-2 & Abram are probably the way to go due to the cost savings.

    Don't have it yet but put a deposit down on my first major piece of gym equipment -- Life Fitness Pro2 chin/dip assist. It wasn't in horrible shape but definitely needed some work.

    For an extra $500, Primo Fitness is doing a re-manufacture on it -- repainting, new cables, pulleys, new foot pads, grips, bolts, custom upholstery color. Sounds like everything will be new with the exception of the weight stack.

    Expecting it to be finished fairly soon, they said about 3 weeks and that was 10 days ago. And yes I'll be able to try it out before I give them the balance and take delivery.

    I was seriously looking at the Hammer S. new (the L-F is no longer in production) but it was just South of 5K with tax and delivery. I couldn't go there. I looked at a ton of videos and went over the spec sheet and the two appear to be identical.

    It started out just assuming I'd go with the Hammer VKR , much cheaper obviously. But after demoing a Body Solid and Hoist VKR in some stores around here, I was having shoulder pain the next day. I had it x-rayed years ago and it's arthritis. The Ortho advised me then to go to assist on the pull-up and dips. At 67 I feel this is the smart way to go as opposed to buying something then not be able to use it everyday. I am losing the leg raise of the VKR so I'll have to add that at some point, space permitting.,

    Timing was kind a perfect. Was looking for Viking press attachment and old Elite FTS fat bar

    The fat bar is 55 lbs and damn thing is only 48" between the sleeves and sleeves are 18" long. Did not measure the distance while buying it. But does have CK and knurling is medium which is perfect. I cannot use J cups on RM-3 but on Mono's it will work with may be 1/2" to spare.

    will measure the shaft with a caliper.

    Viking press attachment looks like BWTG. It is solid and heavy. The handles feel very comfortable on the wrist.


    Picked up Onit 15 lb club and Rogue Parallettes

    There is one threaded hole and a regular hole on each parallette. Wonder what they are (holes and threaded hole ) meant for.

    thanks, yes I think thats it for now. not much space left! But I do like a bit of variety in my workouts if needed.

    Steinway-yes it pretty versatile. I like the fact I can use my own bench and face into the machine in any direction for presses etc. I do have a lat pulldown already so not sure how much I will use for that- but I do like the low row on this. Looking forward with experimenting different exercises with it.

    thanks to Deep-Voiced one for his in depth review with pictures and videos and answering questions

    Picked up a set of Rogue ML spotter arms today. I think squats will be moving outside the rack as it's a PITA getting that SSB in and out of there.

    Indeed.

    I started hanging my SSB from the top with straps instead of moving it in and out.

    I've considered getting another pair of the cheapest Monster j hooks, so I can store my SSB up high, inside the rack as well. I almost pulled the trigger on a set of spotter arms, but I don't have much room to store them.

    That looks great. I only have a half rack so I never thought about the issue of getting a SSB in and out of a full rack but now I can totally see how that would be a PITA. Great idea on the spotter arms.

    Nice setup!!

    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 inexpensive solution.

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 higher up on the post. I store either my power bar or SSB on the hook, depending on whether I'm benching or squatting.

    I use mono's and their set well below the hooks when squatting with the SSB, when I bench the SSB sits well up in the rack, the handles do hang down into the rear of the rack, but don't get at all in the way.


    Here's a link to the kind of hooks I have.

    This cable system arrived a few days ago, must say it's pretty decent for the price. Solid swivel bolt and metal pulley frame, very quiet and smooth, and I was surprised to see that it came with a couple cable attachments and an extra cable for the price. Surprisingly the tricep rope is nicer than some of the stiff ones you'd find on Amazon for $15. Also came with some nice carabiners and the strap seems durable, even though I made my own mounting bracket for my uprights.

    My cheap $25 homemade solution worked okay for a while, but the metal pulley I picked up at Lowe's was destroying the cable coating after a few weeks of use.

    pretty cool idea if space is an issue and you already have a power rack.. looks easy enough to attach to a straight pull bar on a power rack.
    Seems to be popular nowadays with home gyms. saw this spud video

    They are VERY convenient, here is my setup. Pretty much eliminates my need for a dedicated high pulley machine, then the band pegs on the Legend keep the weights from swaying during use.

    I added an Arsenal Strength Reloaded Vertical Row and Adjustable Lumbar Incline Bench. I need time to give detailed thoughts on the pieces, but I am very happy with the build quality.

    I've never used that Arsenal piece, but it's on a very short list of chest-supported rows I've been hunting for (Rogers 3-way and Body Masters CX were on the list also). Congrats!

    I picked up this lot of Icarian stuff yesterday. All of the upholstery is original and the wood is hardwood as opposed to the cheap plywood everyone is using today. The guy I purchased them from said he bought them new in 1989.
