Quick Review: Rep Fitness 9-Bar Vertical Storage

Rep Fitness 9-Bar Holder
We all want our gyms to look nice and organized, right? I know I do. One of the easiest ways to add some organization to your life is through barbell storage. There are two ways to go about it: vertical or horizontal. While I prefer horizontal wall-mounted systems for straight bars, I like vertical systems the best for specialty bars. This is...

Rep Fitness Stainless Steel Power Bar Review

Rep Fitness Stainless Steel Power Bar End Cap
Stainless steel bars are becoming an increasingly popular option among lifters due to their superb oxidation resistance and overall feel. There are a few equipment manufacturers who have either already introduced stainless bars or are in the process of introducing stainless bars for mass production. These include American Barbell, Rogue Fitness, Vulcan Strength, York, Ivanko, etc... As a company known to...

Kabuki Strength Shoulderok Review

Let me guess... You're dealing with some issues with your shoulders... or maybe your back... perhaps your breathing? You're sick of it, right? What if I told you there was a tool that could dramatically help you by retraining your body to move properly, brace correctly, and strengthen those muscles that necessitate a strong foundation? Would you believe me? I mean really, in...

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...

Edge Fitness Slim Football Bar Review

Edge Fitness Football Bar with American Flag
If you can’t tell, I’m a huge fan of specialty bars. The very first specialty bar I purchased was a football bar so I could give my shoulders a break from straight bar work and so I could also add some variety to my training. There are a lot of good options out there when it comes to picking a football/swiss...

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...

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 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...
