Re: Dumb Bar Question

This is by no means a recommendation, but I know some gyms continue to use Hi-Temp 10s after the insert comes out. It is very thin metal, so it usually just means the plate does not sit as...

Re: Bumpers and regular plates

Is it "OK" - yes. Are you going to put more stress on the bumpers - definitely. Matt's general rule is a pretty solid one, especially with 45s on the bar. With lower weights (10/15/25), you want to...

Re: Registration Fees

This is an interesting thought to me. I dislike registration fees also, but what if a gym charged a registration fee equal to one month's rate and refunded it after 6 months? Or just applied it to...

Re: Need an Equipment package for home

For home use, you should not see any deterioration in the bumpers for SEVERAL years (as long as they are decent quality - Hi-Temp, VTX, etc) regardless of whether you have a mat. I would agree that...

Re: some questions about opening a garage gym

Kristian,

A lot of questions in there, so I am going to try to comment sequentially. First, solid set of equipment to start! I am not sure how much more expensive shipping/equipment is up there, but...

Re: Used Equipment Vendors for APO/FPO

Re: Quality kettlebells on a budget

That's correct!

We recommend the OFW 'bells over the MD 'bells. They are well worth the price.

Re: Quality kettlebells on a budget

The Muscle Driver 'bells through Wayfair are definitely good kettlebells at a fair price, but they are not the only option for budget kettlebells.

As mentioned before, you can try to find some used...

Re: Bumpers: Garage Gym vs. Rogue

Without links and based solely on the price difference, I would have to assume that you are comparing "economy" bumpers (Garage Gym) to "competition/elite" Oly bumpers (Rogue). If that is the case,...

Re: Bumper plate help.

45# bumper plates are back in stock in our Austin warehouse.

As for 10# bumpers vs. 15#- all else equal go with 15#s for more durability. Depending upon your use your mileage may vary.

Re: Bumper plate help.

Troy VTX are definitely good; I don't have experience with the others. However, especially since you are in California, I would recommend taking the cost after shipping into account, rather than...

Re: cannot slide plates onto the bar easily

Erik,

Any idea of the brand of bar? And the plates? If they go on one side and not the other, seems the bar is the problem rather than the plates (although it could be a plate issue, just far less...
