    I'll give it some more time, like I said most likely because I am so used to them without it.
    I did have a more positive experience today doing an arm workout. Dumbell and hammer curls I did like. I'll make a more balanced judgement after a few workouts

    I don’t “need” anything but there are a few things I have my eye out for: York plates, belt squat, chest supported t bar row, pec deck, HS low row or DY row. A local HS low row was for sale on eBay recently and the bidding got too high. I saw this one early this morning for a good price and was able to snag it. It has a very small footprint so I think I can make it work, although maybe it’s time to get rid of a bench or two. Always a work out for me to get a HS piece together, but got this one together on its back and lifted it upright. I’ve replaced some hardware, but need to place an order with bolt depot. I will likely recover the pads to match.
    Still having issues uploading photos.

    Nice! You have 3 HS pieces all the same color? You are really getting some nice pieces.

    Thank you. I have the iso row in white. Saw a gray one for sale and thought about getting it to match but passed. If the price was right though.

    No pizza at LA, that's Planet Fitness.

    But I did do single arm at times. LOL

    Current favorite back machine is the Matrix, but I don't get to use it very often unless I'm working out at the base gym.

I think I was just used to moving my hands a bit further to one side when doing this now it feels a bit out of sorts, with the handles attachments jamming into the side of my hands now with the much smaller space for your hands.
    I'll give it some more time.





    If you end up still not liking them ill buy from u

    Since we're talking about IronMasters, does anyone use the Titan Fitness Dumbbell Stand and Plate Tree? I see they're up to Version 3 on it. The top looks to be angled which reminds me of the PowerBlock stand. If you're using it do you prefer it to the IronMaster stand? The Titan stand looks like it would be easier to get to the plates if it were in a tight space better than the IM stand.

    Quick update, started putting together my Powertec leg press at the beginning of the week and along with the video and the instructions to determine some of the bolt sizes, it's really not a bad assembly at all...the only thing holding me back on completing it is time throughout the week, but I found some time each day and I'm just about finished (probably the next day I get to work on it).

    So far my initial impression is that it exceeds my expectations for a residential piece! Powertec really upped their game with the improvements on their tougher textured paint and the stainless steel weight horns are a nice touch compared to their earlier model gloss paint and chrome weight horns (updated welded horns would've be excellent and highly welcomed, but still they're good and will hold up just fine).

    A huge selling point for me aside from it's pound for pound awesome value in the residential/light commercial market is the space that this 45° leg press saves which was extremely important for me with my minimal space, I'm more than satisfied and can't wait to complete the build and start taking it for a spin!

    I fit the whole unit on one stall mat which my Biotest Dead-Squat Bar previously occupied and the leg press takes up less space than that bar on it. The regulars know by now that I was on the fence back and forth on whether to sell, or keep the trap bar and ultimately it's a great bar, but eats up way too much space being rackable for my particular space, so with that said it's back on the market again.

    I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts once it's up and running. I have made great efforts lately to minimize my gym, but a leg press just keeps calling to me, but the commercial units are too big and the home units like the Body Solid just don't do it for me. Powertec looks like the happy medium.

    Thought I'd post a pic of the finished build, the only part I need to put on is one of the weight horns underneath the carriage (one of the hex bolts for the weight horn was defective and couldn't be tightened in, I'll get a replacement one).

    Like mentioned, super compact and will give my opinions and review as soon as I get to take it for a test drive.

    Tiny addition to the gym. Magnetic cupholder from Harbor Freight. Hopefully, this keeps me from putting my water bottle down in random places and then having to hunt for it between sets.
