Re: Oiling a Pendlay Bar?

Couple of things;

1 year is not a "very long time" to have a barbell, and you are absolutely right that a barbell of any worth should last longer than a year. Don't worry, it is highly unlikely...

Mr. Mason-
As a heavy athlete and someone who has had issues with weight in the past I would probably buy the product under two fairly obvious instances;

1.) The research you have is on-point and...

Re: Best Choice Between 3 Olympic Bars? Opinions Please

I wanted to wait to voice my opinion on this, and suggest that you search for a Robert Britt Freund thread that was up several months ago that had links to really great bar comparisons.

Re: Can anybody help me out on cages?

Elite is going to be expensive. It is great stuff, don't get me wrong, one of two or three companies, Rogue and Sorinex being the other two, that makes really bomb-proof stuff.

Why not just get a...

Re: Body compostion and clothes (for guys)

Yeah, I figure in the last two months I have spent enough on dry-cleaning to get a decent suit at a department store, much more at someplace like MWh.

All that on a student's budget is pretty...

Thanks for the recommendation of MWh. I have taken advantage of their services before.

Re: Any of you ever have a pull up band fail?

I have had a band fail. I wasn't using it for pullups, rather as a seated up-ward row but it did fail.

I purchased some jump-stretch bands from EFS about 4 years ago and have used them extensively...

Re: WD-40 stains on Pendlay HD bar

What Kevin said.

I was not as "johnny-on-the-spot" with taking care of my bar when I first got it. I figured I wouldn't have to worry about anything with the bright zinc. I think if the OP...

Re: WD-40 stains on Pendlay HD bar

Glenn-
As always you know much more about your bars than I do so I trust your judgment.

That being said all I can do is report my experience with my bar, which I love by the way!

Re: WD-40 stains on Pendlay HD bar

They are sweat stains, that are probably from where sweat has dried on the bar after a hard work-out.

I'm not at home, spending the semester in DC right now, so I can't post up pictures of my...

Inov-8 220, 195 durability

I've done a little digging on the forums and can't seem to find an answer for the question of how durable both the F-lite 220 and 195 are?

I know they are great shoes for x-fit, and am...

Re: Cost No Object, State of the Art Weight Machines: Brands and Stores?

In terms of bars/bumpers I will defer to Mr. Pendlay's judgment.

In terms of racks/ghd's/machines of that sort I don't think you can really compete with Elitefts equipment and Sorinex. Both...

Re: Squat

Your form looks pretty good, try to find one spot for your eyes and keep them focused there. Allowing your head to move around tends to loosen your upper back. This generally isn't an issue with...

Additionally, it looks like you have some leg shake/quake going. Work on strenghtening your hammies a little to help with this.

Re: What bar should I look to get next?

Given this info, if I were you, I would spend a tad more than your stated 375 and get one of Glenn's bearing bars. The bar is going to be the core of your business and spending the extra money won't...

Re: What bar should I look to get next?

If you want to keep it under $375 one of the basic Rogue bars is going to be your best bet. The Pendlay bars, and the B&R bearing bar, will run you about $500. A good bearing bar is probably out of...

Re: What bar should I look to get next?

Re: I want a big squat because...

I would recommend Wendler's 531 program if squatting big is a priority. You could probably even combine it with X-fit if that was important to you.

One idea would be to;
