Re: Anyone have pics?

Re: Weider Barbell Weight Rating?

I do weighted pull-ups, around 50 extra pounds, so that when I do my muscle-up I am able to quickly throw my weight up past the rings.

Re: Pin and Snap ring Comparison?

Just mainly wondering what the overall differences are. I assume it is like the pinned vs. threaded barrel on SKS's. Oh, and pictures would be great! Thanks.

Re: GoFit kettlelbell issues

Re: Kettle Bells: Ader, MD Grey V2, or Wright?

Thanks for the tip.

My local Play it Again is a joke. They are more of a junk yard than anything else. Oh and they want top $$$ for their crap, haha.
