LUXIAOJUN Mastery Power Bar End Cap on Sorinex XL Rack
The Mastery Power Bar is my second barbell from the young, up-and-coming company LUXIAOJUN. My first barbell from them, which I reviewed here, was the E1 Training Bar - a quality budget-friendly multipurpose bar. Since using these bars and speaking with several others who have had experience with LUXIAOJUN, I believe they're offering some of the best bars and plates for...

Rep Urethane Equalizer Plates being held in hands - Garage Gym Lab
When Rep Fitness first dropped their iron Equalizer plates a couple years of ago, I was pumped. I've always been a fan of these shooter-style plates with the cutouts, and the Rep design on these specific plates drew my eye immediately. Upon receiving those plates, however, I was a bit disappointed because they didn't have the tolerances I was expecting... meaning...

Gungnir Allrounder - End Cap In Garage Gym
When you look at the Allrounder Bar from Gungnir, one of two thoughts is likely to pop into your head: 1.) Wow, this is amazing! 2.) Umm, this is solving a problem that doesn't exist. While either, or even both, could be true depending on the person and the situation, one thing I think everyone can agree on when looking at this...

Gymway USA Cross Training Bar 2.0 - End Cap Design - Garage Gym Lab
Chances are, as of the date of this article, you've never heard of Gymway USA. Chances also are, you may have actually used a barbell made by them without even knowing it. This Taiwanese manufacturer has been making barbells for other well-known companies to private label for over 30 years. I own a couple of these bars myself and, while I can't...

Rep Fitness AB-5200 in Garage Gym
I don't think it's any secret at this point... ...I think Rep Fitness is making the best benches for the money. This has been my position since they came out with the AB-5000 Zero Gap Bench, which I reviewed here. While I don't necessarily think they're making the best benches ever in the history of bench making, when it comes down to...

Luxiaojun E1 - Cover End Cap - Garage Gym Lab
As one of the most decorated Olympic weightlifters of all time, Lu Xiaojun needs very little introduction. His success on the platform is well documented, and he's a household name within the sport. Recently, Lu launched a gym equipment company with an international presence. The initial offerings of bars, plates, a squat stand, and other weightlifting-related gear are all available in the...

Inertia Wave Conditioning Tool Review

Have you ever seen a fitness product and said to yourself "meh, that looks easy..." ...only to try it and realize you were dead freakin' wrong? Yeah, that was me with the Inertia Wave. I mean, how challenging can it be to wave around some ropes that weigh less than 3 lbs? The answer, my friends, is that it's very challenging... downright taxing,...

Stray Dog 4-Way Attachment - Cover - Garage Gym Lab
Established in 1999, Stray Dog Strength isn't a newcomer to the equipment scene, but you may think they are. Originally known as "The Equipment Guys", the company recently re-branded to Stray Dog Strength. Historically, they've been most active in the facilities arena, working with sports teams, facility build-outs, etc... Over the last year, however, they've hit the social media scene...

Titan Fitness Safety Squat Bar v2 - Cover Photo - Garage Gym Lab
The Titan Fitness v2 Safety Squat Bar is a monumental improvement over Titan's first version, which was widely considered to be an all-around terrible bar. The camber angles were completely wrong, the yoke was too wide, it had a lot of whip, etc... Thankfully, Titan ditched it all together and brought to market a safety squat bar that many people...

Stainless Rogue Fitness Ohio Power Bar - Cover - Garage Gym Lab
The Rogue Ohio Power Bar is one of, if not the most popular power bar ever created. I've been a user of this bar for several years in the black zinc variety. It was actually the first bar I ever purchased. I recently decided to upgrade to the stainless steel version for two reasons. Firstly, I've come to really appreciate stainless...
