    Thanks. The angles are a little different.I’m keeping the Black Widow football bar as I like the close grip option. Your going to love the Edge bar. I use mine alot and it really helps my shoulders.

    I agree. Loving the bar but have only done 1 workout with it. It definitely feels good so far.

    Agree with you on the discomfort. I still use it but mostly like a finishing set

    Nautilus Next Gen Super Pullover in amazing condition. Woman's husband purchased it new. Absolute nightmare to get it out of the house. The pouring rain and massive gash in my knee from a pickup earlier in the week made it even tougher, but she made it home. Now I have 2 pullovers and have to figure out which to keep. :O

    Gorgeous piece. I don't know what your other pullover is but I'd be hard pressed to get rid of this one especially given that it was privately owned, bought new, and you worked like hell to get it home. Nice and compact too at least from a width perspective.

    I took the stack off and expected it be able to zip, zip, zip around the room after that like the Gen 1/2, but it was still a challenge to move, especially with nowhere to grip.

    My other one is a Nautilus Gen 1/2 Women's Pullover.

    * Edit: Apparently, the Super Pullover from the same generation is a bit wider, but I just measured both machines I have and the Next Gen Super Pullover is actually a little narrower than the Gen 1/2 Women's Pullover. Considering the condition the Next Gen is in, I'm probably going to keep that one.

    I do like how compact it is. I had a gen 1 and that thing was ginormous.

    Nice, had the same one a few years ago but ended up selling it for the space. Thing was an absolute beast, but I did wish that the pads and pulldown bar were made for smaller people, felt like it was geared towards 6'+ users.

    No......the bar is made the same way that most swiss bars are, and is powder coated except for the sleeves. sleeves are hard chrome coated. They don't rotate or anything, they are just part of the bar. I haven't used it yet, I'll try it out on Sunday.

    I got this bar on Craigslist, so it's not like I was looking specifically for chromed sleeves. However, I think that is a great touch that more manufacturers ought to start doing.

    I have a bunch of these and while I didn't need them, I wanted more and they're hard to find. Paid $1/lb (good price for urethane, but my limit b/c I'm cheap).

    Finally sold my Rogue Abrams 2.0 GHD and put in an Inspire FTX Functional Trainer. Ordered from Costco with delivery and adjustable bench included for their $1299 price. Definitely freed up some room and swapped the location of the reverse hyper into the GHD spot and put the Inspire in the corner next to my Powerblocks (non-updated pictures in sig link).

    My wife was looking for a way to catch a fast workout without maneuvering heavy benches and bars/plates so this was an easy solution I'd wanted to add for a while anyway. Really great product as I've demoed an FT1 before and this is essentially the same. Won't be doing any upgrades to fit it for an expanded stack though I might do the pegs to hold plates at some point. I did get a piece of chain to put between pulleys hoping my wife could incorporate belt squats more easily (I also have a leverage belt squat at the back of my rack) though even straddling the chain it doesn't work as I thought - and this is why I don't design equipment for a living!

    Overall pretty happy with it. I'm primarily a barbell and then dumbbell guy so it won't see more than occasional use from me but very nice to have another option. Only issue is that I now have 3 benches in a not large gym because 1) my wife doesn't like to move my heavy ones and 2) my Rogue Adjustable is too large framed to fit inside on a lot of incline/overhead positions. Not getting rid of the Rogue or my Fat Pad bench so is what it is. Frankly the Inspire bench is way too light framed and built low for standard barbell and dumbbell lifts IMO especially if you are a bigger guy.

    How tall and big are you? Is the machine tall enough? What limits are you hitting with the stack?

I'm 240-250 and 6'3". Trying to get down to 230 at the moment which is probably 10% or a tad below for me - I was 238 this morning and somewhere below 12% likely. I get as high as 265-275 but trying not to get there again as I'm getting older. Width of unit seems fine. Really compact and opened up some floor space despite the 3rd bench now.

    Stacks are 165lbs and a 2:1 ratio. Expanding them on the FT1 gives you another 50lbs per stack but modding FTX with extra plates, FT1 guide rods, and FT1 cables is $800ish as I recall. Not worth it to me for my use. FT1 is $2500 (not sure if that's shipped) and FTX is $1299 shipped with bench from Costco.

    No issue on size/height of the unit that I see. I have a separate lat pulldown and low row - these FTs aren't geared for that as they don't lock you in properly and I need to lock in on pulldowns for anything 15 reps and below. I haven't tried to press heavy on flat or incline as without gradual accommodation to the unit's motion that's begging for an injury. On some of the incline and military work I messed around and the stacks as they come seem to be ample for assistance/volume work at least for now though I haven't spent enough time to accommodate properly (will just get weight stack pins and add plates if needed). I think I did sets of 10 comfortably but brand new to it (very different feel than a barbell or dumbbell) and had a lot left on the stack if I wanted to push so not even sure I'll need to bother much but still playing around a bit. I'm not a good presser at this bodyweight and have multiple dislocations and tears so probably won't be in my future.

    Overall the way I see the FT decision is you get an Inspire, with FTX being maybe one of the best retail deals ever offered in this industry (but FT1 at regular pricing works too), OR you go big and get the Prime FT or Cybex Bravo or similar. Nothing else makes sense to me with Inspire's high quality and price point.

    I'm basically at this point myself right now, I'm leaning toward getting this as well provided I can make the space, the value you get on this piece is one of the very best going I'd say.

    Excellent. Thanks. Can’t rep you, on spread.

Definitely freed up some room and swapped the location of the reverse hyper into the GHD spot and put the Inspire in the corner next to my Powerblocks (non-updated pictures in sig link).

    My wife was looking for a way to catch a fast workout without maneuvering heavy benches and bars/plates so this was an easy solution I'd wanted to add for a while anyway. Really great product as I've demoed an FT1 before and this is essentially the same. Won't be doing any upgrades to fit it for an expanded stack though I might do the pegs to hold plates at some point. I did get a piece of chain to put between pulleys hoping my wife could incorporate belt squats more easily (I also have a leverage belt squat at the back of my rack) though even straddling the chain it doesn't work as I thought - and this is why I don't design equipment for a living!

    Overall pretty happy with it. I'm primarily a barbell and then dumbbell guy so it won't see more than occasional use from me but very nice to have another option. Only issue is that I now have 3 benches in a not large gym because 1) my wife doesn't like to move my heavy ones and 2) my Rogue Adjustable is too large framed to fit inside on a lot of incline/overhead positions. Not getting rid of the Rogue or my Fat Pad bench so is what it is. Frankly the Inspire bench is way too light framed and built low for standard barbell and dumbbell lifts IMO especially if you are a bigger guy.
    I agree with you on the Inspire bench. I could never make it a primary bench, wouldn't trust it under any load. But for using with their Functional Trainer it's nice. It's shorter which is nice since the actual FT from Costco is on the short side. For doing things like incline cable flies inside of the FT it's pretty nice. Plus it's on wheels and very light weight. It even folds flat if someone wanted to store it on a wall.

    LOL. Not sure why I put GHD. I have never used a GHD or a reverse hyper. Something to add to the list....

    Weird, lol. I've had a GHR (ghd) and rev. hyper since 2001 and have used both weekly for 20 years, except when I substitute the inverse curl instead of the ghr, but even then I'll often use it to warmup.

    I love my GHD, I use it every week. I've been on the fence about a Reverse Hyper. I have been doing bodyweight reverse hypers on the GHD for about a year, and I've had a lot less back pain. Not sure how much sense it makes for me to load up the weight on that movement.

    I only have a RH because I'm able to make my own. Tilt top, very heavy, large footprint... If I couldn't make one then I wouldn't spend $1000+ ($2000+ for tilt models) on one and I wouldn't use the cheaper/smaller/lighter models. If that helps.
