    - The Atlantis Flat Decline is unique, definitely in my top 5 of all machines I own.

    - As of now, The Atlantis Pivot press and Panatta Leg Press bridge remain fairly equivalent overall. The Atlantis is more inverted, which I like. The Panatta has a much better seat, which is also adjustable in the angle. I'll see if anything is new when I go next.

    - For the Pullover, I'd wait. I wish I could give feedback on it now, but its going to have to wait until June. I have not been happy with the previous pullovers. Its hard to beat a Nautilus 1st Gen plate loader or SP08 selectorized. I look forward to finding out about the new pullover.

    - Yes, without a doubt get the new special Deltoid. They improved the only thing remiaining that could have possible been improved: adding linkage which improved the strength curve to PERFECT. Now you have a shoulder machine which will never be beaten and is sheer perfection. I tried the prototype 2 years ago. Its absolutely perfect. Nothing like it.

    - The special line-up does look amazing. I look forward to compare and fully evaluate the line.
    I wish I had room for a couple of the units from the special line, particularly the Incline Chest and the Pullover, I think they would compliment my Vertical chest, Deltoid Press, High Row and Power Squat, but alas I didn't have the space and I'm awaiting delivery of a Panatta Circular Incline Chest and Pullover from the Fit Evo line, they'll hopefully be delivered on Wednesday, maybe not nBOTB, but I really liked both machines when I tried them out last year.

    HealthNutMD, I saw a few years ago you mentioned that you were working on an improved version of the Panatta leg press bridge. When is this going to come out?

    This is new on their website. I'm interested to try it out:



    https://www.panattasport.com/en/product/1FW085.html

    I wish they made the power row that gets easier towards end range, as it stands this is probably the best modern row in production?



    I tried out some old school plate loaded Circular motion machines that get easier at end range, and they were great. Precor Flite Plate Loaded machines pretty good. Hope panatta makes an isolateral plate loaded circular rowing like they did with the pulldown

    This Prime 4 tier Dumbbell rack is nice. The Stainless Steel dumbbells' look great with the Blue Rack however I still prefer rubber coated dumbbells'. I can't post links yet so had to split up the link. You can also look up Prime 4 tier Dumbbell Rack on youtube to find it.

    compact leg press

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a compact leg press (space is very limited in my home gym).
    So far the candidates are one of the panatta selectorized horizontal leg presses (e.g. monolith 1mth085 - panattasport.com/en/product/1MTH085.html) or the gym80 4361 pure kraft strong / no bull** (gym80.de/en/product/plate-loaded-en/pure-kraft-strong-en/4361-pure-kraft-strong-leg-press-dual/). The gym80 is quite long, but it loads from the front so I wouldn't need to leave space around it for loading.
    I like that both of them can also go into a horizontal hack squat like position.
    @HelatNutMD I think you might be one of the few who tested both. I would highly appreciate any advice.

    Any other suggestions?
    I could also go with one of the panatta plate loaded leg press bridges, but then I would have to drop 2 other panatta selectorized machines.

    Thanks

    I had a long, hard look at both of those (only tried Panatta), and ultimately decided on neither due to space requirement and price.
    How much space do you have? These two machines are large in every plane.
    Another compact horizontal press that I considered:
    (price on pair with Panatta)

    And if you really want a compact horizontal press:

    http://www.crossaxestech.com/products.html

    I have cooled of on the horizontal leg presses.
    I'd rather go with something like this:
    https://www.panattasport.com/en/product/1FW085.html
    It's long, but not overly wide.

    I have a 2.6mx3m free area with walls on 3 sides. I'm trying to fit as many machines as possible.
    With leg presses around 1m-1.2m wide, I'll still have place for 2 selectorized machines. With the panatta "new" leg press bridge (1FW085) in theory I wouldn't have space for anything else (I need some space around to be able to load it). OTOH the wide part of 1FW085 is the part with the loading pins and the loading pins don't move much horizontally, so I might be able to fit another machine...
    Besides this free space area, I still can fit 2 maybe 3 smaller machines in different rooms. Ideally I would like to add a shoulder press, a vertical chest press, a pulldown and a low row (I already have an inclined chest press, pec deck, functional trainer/cables, chest supported t-bar, belt squat and pendulum squat). I'm thinking of going mostly with panatta circular models (since they are a bit more compact and seem to be pretty good anyway).

    Another problem is that I have narrow doors (79-80cm) and a narrow hallway, so the machines would need to be demountable.

    Another compact horizontal press that I considered:
    (price on pair with Panatta)

    Thanks a lot, I didn't know about grunsport. Really interesting. Cross Axes Tech is interesting too, but the shipping cost might be a problem (I'm in .eu).

    I'm in a very similar situation, except that the whole Virus situation put a stop to my plans.
    I'm at a point where I would need to sacrifice another bedroom for gym equipment, and the house already looks weird to visitors.
    Also had to pass on some equipment due to narrow doors and a very narrow stairway.

    Have a look at this as well:
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BtSry-Xlhci/ (Dimensions: 180x180x170cm) (I'm still considering this one)
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BgZr3gyFFfa/ (conventional leg press)
    I believe they have a horizontal leg press like the ones above, but you'll need to contact them. EU based, high quality equipment.

    Panatta is an easy choice these days. They seem to be on a roll with new designs, and entire catalogue is fantastic.

    I ended up getting (4) 45lb plates, (2) 35lb plates, (2) 25lb plates, (4) 10lb plates, and (4) 5lb plates with a weight tree stand for $120.00 at an auction.

    They are in good shape, but a few of the 45lb plates need sanded and painted. What type of paint should I use on them? Just any type of spray paint?

    They aren't a big name brand, but its a step closer to getting a home gym complete. I already had (2) 45lb plates and some 25lb plates. Needless to say I have enough plates for a long while.
    I picked up a dumbbell stand, so now I'm going to start searching for some used dumbbells.

    There is no right answer for this, whatever color you want. Some people just strip them with no paint, some paint black with different color lettering. I think getting the plates prepped for painting is key and there are plenty of threads on the subject.

    CROSS AXES TECH - Colors?

    I am looking for any opinions on upholstery and grip colors to go with "Bronze Chrome" frames. I have temporarily run out of the "Black" handgrip material (everyone wants black), and I am looking for opinions on other color combinations to go with the "Bronze Chrome" frames.
    I selected some colors that I feel will go with the Bronze Chrome.

    The B-2000 has "Imperial Blue" upholstery and grips. The C-2000 has both "Forest Green" upholstery and grips and "Burgundy" upholstery and grips. The C-3000 has "Yew Green" (slightly darker than the Forest Green) upholstery and grips.

    Sorry, I missed the C-2000 in "Burgundy".

    I don’t have an answer but your pieces look good.
    Who is making your pads and what are you using for the backing material. Looks like black UHMW. Thank you.

    Question regarding power rack

    Hi Guys

    Love the thread. Super helpful.

    Building a commercial private gym - filling the space with 70% Atlantis 20% prime and 10% rogue. Ordered the pro hack squat from Atlantis, super excited.

    Wanted to get everyone’s input on a squat rack. I was gearing towards going with bolted rm4 but am concerned with the longevity of the piece.

    Appreciate any input.

    Thanks
    Will post pics of the gym once complete

    I would maybe reconsider the rogue squat racks. I have heard of people having issues with them being a bit wobbly / out of center. Also, from other gym equipment related forums Rogue seems to be going through some customer service / quality / supply issues right now. For a commercial gym I'd suggest maybe going with a fully or partially welded squat rack.

    Power Lift has some great equipment - https://www.powerliftusa.com/
    They outfit a lot of pro, college, and HS sports facilities. I've seen used units come through that look brand new. They seem to have great longevity.

    Other racks to look at, I believe HealthNutMD (OP) ended up with a Rae Crowther rack:https://raecrowther.com/home-strength/
    Before that I think he had a fully welded Atlantis unit.

    I think the fitness youtuber Jujimufu sold his Rogue rack and went with arsenal strength: https://myarsenalstrength.com/strength-equipment/

    Legend Fitness has been popular on this forum and their prices seem to be pretty reasonable for partially welded racks: https://www.legendfitness.com/


    Lots of great options out there. Good Luck.

    Juji still has the rogue rack, it's in his shed gym. He went with a Ghost Strong rack in his main gym.

    ProMaxima makes a good squat rack and their pricing is very competitive. They have good accessories available for the rack as well. I've had one for years with absolutely no issues.

    I've had 2 Legend Racks, Monster Half Rack and six post Performance, I still have the Performance rack, it's built like a tank, however if I were looking for a rack I'd be seriously considering Dynamic Strength, I used one last year and was very impressed with the build quality and functionality.
