    GymPin alternatives?

    https://gym-pin.co.uk/product/the-minipin/

    Ingenious way of adding weight to selectorized machines. Just wondering if there's a US based alternative?

    I ended up using platemates but that's expensive too and only really helps with incremental increases. Not great for making your stack significantly heavier.

    I'm sad to report that I've never really exceeded the weight stack on any machine I've owned, to need one of these. Came close on an old Nautilus leg curl machine once, but what are yall out there doing? 1RM attempts with lat pulldowns? Haha

    I'm planning on picking a weight stack extender sometime soon. I'm a fan of hip thrusts on leg extension machines, and it's pretty easy to max out those stacks with medium/high reps.

    Manly reps:


    Also, if you're trying to do rows on adjustable cable columns you're looking at halving the weight stack weight. For example, the Prime Fitness Selectorized Rack has two 350 lb stacks, but the adjustable pulleys only work 175 lbs each.

    nothing I have owned but back in commercial gym days I maxed out some chest presses and I always felt that was pretty easy to do as I think the hardest thing about benching heavy is stabilizing the weight.

    Well, thinking about it I guess I usually try to avoid cable machines for the most part. I've never ran into a cable chest press that felt good to me so I always gravitate to leverage machines or free weights. Oh well, the older I get the less attractive trying to max out a weight stack sounds haha. Just trying to look pretty I guess.

    This was like 12 years ago I think and in an apartment complex gym and I used to bench and though go do as heavy as I could on the chest press and quickly found i could max out a 250lb stack...not super heavy by any means but I thought it was a good way to finish off after bench.
