Iron Neck Training Tool Review

Iron Neck Varsity - Garage Gym Lab
Let me ask you a question... When was the last time you trained your neck? Last week? Last month? Longer? Maybe never? Let's face it, neck training isn't high on the priority list for a lot of athletes, and certainly not your every day Jimmy and Joe. It's not really a "sexy" muscle group like the abs, pecs, etc... Why even bother, amirite? Well... no. Neck...

Vulcan Urethane Bumper Plates Review

Vulcane Urethane Plates - Cover Garage Gym Lab
Vulcan Strength, as I've mentioned before, is perennially underrated in the gym equipment space. They make some of my favorite gear, including my #1 pick for a power bar under $350. Recently they've launched their new urethane bumper plates, and overall I'm very impressed. As urethane continues to become more and more popular, it's nice to see some additional options out there,...

Fringe Sport Competition Bumper Plate Review

Fringe Sport Competition Bumper Plates Garage Gym Lab
Looking for some new competition bumper plates? Don’t want to pay typical competition bumper plate prices? Fringe Sport just may be the answer. Over the last couple of years, particularly the last 12 months or so, Fringe Sport has been introducing some nice products at great prices. From specific-purpose barbells like their weightlifting bar and power bar (reviews here and here) to these...

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...

Vulcan Buffalo Bar Review

Vulcan Buffalo Bar - Cover - Garage Gym Lab
Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you're reading this review and you're looking for a buffalo bar, odds are you have shoulder mobility issues, elbow pain, or possibly some wrist problems. Maybe you're just looking for some additional variety in your training, deeper range of motion on bench, etc... Either way, the buffalo bar is an excellent choice. Historically, mainstream "bow...

Rep Fitness PowerSpeed Bar Review

Rep Fitness PowerSpeed Bar Garage Gym Lab
After what felt like an eternity, the aggressive Rep Fitness PowerSpeed bar has arrived! If you got a taste of the Rep stainless steel power bar (review here), you know what I'm talking about. That bar, which released in 2017 offers more of a medium cut. That is, it's not very aggressive. It's a really nice bar, no doubt, but it...

Rogue Fitness Flat Utility Bench Review

Rogue Flat Bench Cover Photo Garage Gym Lab
The Rogue flat bench is one of the most popular benches on the market for anyone with a home gym. It's reasonably priced, it's easily portable, it's well built, and it works just fine... Wait... just fine, you ask? Yes, in my opinion, it works just fine. I've owned this bench for over two years now, and it that time it has served...

American Barbell California Bar Review

California Bar End Cap Garage Gym Lab
Is it just me or did Cerakote bars become all the rage seemingly overnight? In the increasingly competitive equipment space, if you're not innovating or at least keeping pace with the innovators, you're putting yourself behind the proverbial 8-ball. The company behind the Cerakote frenzy? American Barbell. Since introducing Cerakote on barbells, companies like Rogue Fitness, Fringe Sport, and Wright Equipment have all...

Oh, what's that? You need a new flat bench? Well, that's good because this Rep Fitness bench is rocking the flat bench world. Yep, this bench is completely awesome. Not only does it offer one of the best designs around, but it has one of the best values of any bench you'll find. I've been using the Rogue Flat Utility Bench for the past...

Moving Over Boundaries Limitless Grip Review

Moving Over Boundaries Limitless Grip
You know what sucks? Slippery benches. You know what I'm talking about, right? You take your time getting set up under the bar. Your shoulders are down and back, your upper back is set, you have a tight arch... you're ready to move some weight. But then something terrible happens. You unrack the bar, maybe hit a couple reps, and then you start...
