Rep Fitness Stainless Steel Power Bar Review

Rep Fitness Stainless Steel Power Bar End Cap

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...

Intek Functional Trap Bar Review

Intek Functional Trap Bar with Intek Bravo Bumpers
I love this bar. No, like I REALLY love this bar. I'm actually a huge fan of trap bars in general for a number of reasons. I find the movement to be very natural, from the neutral grip to the efficient lockout. Because the load can generally be heavier on a trap bar, I find it benefits overall leg strength as...

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...

American Barbell Grizzly Power Bar Review

American Barbell Grizzly Power Bar End Cap Garage Gym Lab
Picture this for a second... The year is 1996. You're at home making some dinner and watching TV when a commercial comes on. A woman is chiseling away at a statue of a muscular, long-haired man. She places a buttered piece of bread on the pedestal that he's so eloquently leaning against when BAM... Fabio, in all his glory, busts through...

Vulcan Absolute Power Bar Review

Vulcan Absolute Power Bar End Cap Garage Gym Lab
Vulcan Strength is perennially underrated in the gym equipment space. Located in my hometown of Charlotte, NC, they're a veteran-owned company who has been around since 2009. In that time, they've built a reputation for creating high-quality pieces, especially barbells and plates. Their recent releases of the new Stainless Steel Power Bar and the updated Absolute Power Bar demonstrate their commitment...
