    Did you jump on that Inspire rubber coated olympic set from Costo for $350? I was considering getting a couple of them and selling off the oly bars.

I also attached the hybrid pad to my Superbench PRO. I think it really helps for using the leg ext/curl attachment.


    I also sold my old TDS GHD for a killing in relation to what I paid. I don't do GHRs, I only used it for hyperextensions. I bought the IronMaster back extension attachment. I really like this piece, it's super sturdy. I'm trying to free up some room by getting rid of the standalone leg ext/curl and GHD. I want to put in a half rack and this will help.
    thinking of getting the wider pad for the ironmaster. Looks good for leg ext/curls. But for chest supported rows I like the narrow original pad.

    Clearly, the only acceptable option is two benches.

    I did. I kept 45s and 25s. The rest of the plates went to my brother. A buddy needs a starter barbell so he's going to get a deal in it. Overall solid quality. Everything came packaged in a shipping crate.

    To me, it makes the leg ext/curl attachment useable. I had a Powertec one that I hated. I actually prefer the lying leg curl on the IM to the stand alone unit I used to have, great space saver too. I never used it for chest supported rows, but can see that would hinder it. I wanted a non contoured pad to be able to do hip thrusts with, but like radrd said...

    well already have two benches (Legend 3-way). I think for now I'll keep the orignal pad. bench supported work is more important to me right now than leg curls. I'm sure its better with wider pad- but its only one exercise versus the many options for rows I use it for.

    brand new Medium/Wide Hybrid MAG Handle

    I've been a big MAG handle dude for a few years now (posted my original review here). I know I don't have to convince anyone here that they are awesome.

    I was lucky enough to have a conversation with the owner of MAG and talk about my reviews and knowledge of the product. She mentioned she wanted to send me something, I shared my address... and this bad boy showed up!









    Wide > New in between > Mediums



    Wide > New in between > Mediums




    These aren't available... yet! But are part of their upcoming new product releases.

    As you can see in the photos, it isn't quite wide, and isn't quite medium, somewhere in the middle. A VERY slight pronation, basically neutral.

    Really excited to add this to my routine and see the pros and cons.

    If anyone has any questions, let me know!

    I'm very interested to hear your thought. The wide grip is the only one I don't have, as my lat pulldown/low row is rack attached, and I would only have 2" of clearance on each side until possibly pinching myself against a post.

    Just measured it, and it is a solid 3inches shorter on each side, about 30.5 in total.

    Mutant Metals Snap Back Roller Monolift Hooks

    Another one, as yesterday was new gym toys day apparently...

    These things are clean and awesome. Initial impressions... little details accounted for, they move smoothly, adjust easily, and look great. I'll do a full write up in the future.

    They look great! Will be interested to see how they compare to your Edge Fitness Mono's, especially the clearance on the swing arm.

    Looking forward to the newer one that is in the middle. I find the wide one ok but is the one I use the least. Something in between in length should be a good alternative

    I feel like the wide is a tad too wide, for my shoulder issue, and medium is too narrow. Very interested in this newer size.

    Added a couple things recently, giving the Rogue Dog Sled 1.2 another try and bought a PAL lever from Kabuki since I've never ordered anything from them before. Sled arrived in a few days from Rogue, but nothing from Kabuki. So I, emailed them today for a status (it's been 8 days) and their response was that it usually ships out in FOUR weeks. Had to laugh, the massive sled came in no time but a tiny lever could take up to a month LOL

    wait times seems to vary greatly lately. I ordered plates from Rep in the past and they were shipped within a day or so. Ordered some more on Memorial day sale, so far not a peep. wondering if they got slammed on orders?

    I received my first purchase from EliteFTS last week and went with the American Cambered bar.

    My home gym is pretty full, so being the equipment junkie that I am I have been seeking out smaller miscellaneous items. Today's pickup: Rogue Monster Lite Matador for $40.

    Tried a matador once & ended up selling it. Turns out I prefer the feel of my DIY Lowe's pipes laying across the safeties for dips. Easier to get the perfect grip width without feeling like I was going to hit my head/chest on the attachment. Also, being able to lean forward with the pipe setup is REALLY nice. Gives you the option to shift some of the focus to your chest for a great pump.

    Hopefully it works out for you though!

    One of the items I consider a luxury that I won't replace is a stand alone dip station. My IM bench rolls between the base and stands up fine so they don't take up any extra room having both.

    I had an Icarian dip station and didn't really use it much - certainly not enough to warrant the space it took up or the $400 opportunity cost of keeping it. I only do dips as a finisher, so I just wanted something quick, easy, unobtrusive and cheap. For $40 it was a no-brainer, especially considering the ML Matador is $151 shipped from Rogue. If it doesn't pan out, I can easily sell it for double what I paid for it.

    Stand alone all the way, if you have the space.

    New Kabuki (really Pioneer) PAL came today! Little customizing with the holes on the Inzer but it works well, nice upgrade for one of the best belts ever made

    Makes sense. I think I paid $20 for my old white version body solid one and the footprint takes up no additional space so my isn't a big enough deal to worry about the possible money or space

    I have traditional hex styled Rep Fitness dumbbells 5-50lbs. I've been wanting heavier dumbbells but as we all know traditional dumbbells from 55 on up are expensive and it takes up a lot of space.

    Thankfully I found a set of Power Block Elites that go up to 90lbs, comes with a stand, and look to be in pristine condition. On top of that I feel the price is a steal at $500. Now I have 55-90lb dumbbells so I saved on space and money.

    Solid choice! In the cambered FBB category this would've been the runner up to my Kabuki Kadillac Bar that I got this past Christmas.

    It's cool how you can flip it over and deficit bench with it as well.
