Rogue Competition Bumpers Review

Rogue Competition Bumper Plates in Garage Gym
Some people say "weight is weight," but I kinda disagree. Sure, the point in all this lifting stuff is to load up weight and lift it repeatedly, and you can certainly get strong regardless... But not all weight is created equal. There are, among others, different sizes, different materials, different bounces, and different weight tolerances. All of these variables have an impact to...

Rogue R3 Power Rack Review

Rogue R3 Power Rack Review
Picking a power rack... it's overwhelming, right? There are just a ton of options out there, which I elaborate on in The Ultimate Guide to Building a Powerlifting Home Gym. When I was first in the market for a rack, I did an exhaustive amount of research trying to find the perfect balance between price, performance, and footprint. I got googly-eyed looking at...

Rogue Ohio Power Bar Review

Rogue Ohio Power Bar End Cap
True of False: The Rogue Ohio Power Bar is the best value power bar currently on the market. While there are some really nice power bars being introduced, some of which provide excellent value, it's hard to argue that the Rogue Ohio Power Bar doesn't offer the best bang for your buck. It's well made, it has great specs, it looks...

EliteFTS Safety Squat Bar Review

EliteFTS Safety Squat Bar with American Flag in background
When it comes to buying a safety squat bar, there’s really only about a handful of options that are worth your money. The EliteFTS SSB is one of those options, and it’s arguably the best and most popular safety squat bar on the market. When selecting an SSB, the most important factors to consider are general construction (duh), balance/camber angles, padding...

Fringe Sport Weightlifting Bar Review

Fringe Sport Weightlifting Bar End Cap
Fringe Sport is beginning to really make a push into the barbell scene with more specificity in terms of lifting styles. They've recently launched the weightlifting bar, the hybrid bar, and the power bar, and they are doing so at very reasonable prices. In this review, I'll be taking a look at the weightlifting bar, which comes in at under...

Inzer Lever Belt Review

Inzer Forever Lever Belt in Garage Gym
"You get what you pay for." I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy buyer's remorse. When I make a purchase, I hope to extract enough value from it to justify the price tag. The level of remorse is magnified of course when the price tag is higher, the psychological attachment is stronger, the perceived benefit is greater, etc... Does...

Kabuki Strength Power Bar Review

Kabuki Power Bar - End Cap Garage Gym Lab
You've seen it, right? Chris Duffin gnawing away at a competing power bar... Not literally, as in Chris himself, but rather his ever-so-awesome Kabuki Strength power bar. In case you missed it, you can catch the video below, but the cliff notes are a follows: Chris puts the Kabuki power bar on the lathe. Chris turns on the lathe. Chris firmly presses...
