Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

I don't think a thread like this exists for the barbell, so I wanted to start one. The Olympic barbell is one of the most important purchases one can make for their home gym. A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Falling backwards during squat fail

This vid got me thinking decent squat stands like Rogue S2 / SML-2 with spotter arms are completely useless when you fall backwards. Is this kind of fail very rare? Even his unbolted rack moved a bit when he dropped the bar. TqJu8rY4eps

power rack and flat bench, or dumbbells first?

Is it better to get a power rack and flat bench first, or get adjustable dumbbells first? I understand it would be good to get both, but the budget does not allow getting all of that at the same time. Can spend around $600 per year. Currently I have one barbell and iron plates, and an old...

Is 2x3 the way to go on a rack?

I'm debating between the Rogue SML-2 (3x3) and the S2 (2x3). The SML-2 is newer but I've heard the reduced 2" clearance from the 3x3 for re-racking the bar may be an issue. Any thoughts? Is 2x3 the way to go?
