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...

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...

Titan Fitness Safety Squat Bar v2 Review

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...

American Barbell Urethane Bumper Plate Review

American Barbell Urethane Plates
(Deep movie trailer guy voice) "In a world where rubber dominates the bumper plate arena, a West Coast company revolutionizes the game with a different type of product..." I'm listening... "...one that offers sex appeal, impressive performance, and downright amazing stamina..." Sounds exciting, go on... "...and leaves you feeling as if you're king of the world..." Yes, uh huh? Asking for a friend... "... as...

Body-Solid R300 Rower Review

Body Solid R300 Rower - Cover - Garage Gym Lab
Let's play a quick game of word association... When you read the word below, what's the first thing that comes to your mind... 'Rower.' If you thought 'Concept 2', you're likely in the majority. By the way, 'brutal' is another that popped into my mind. Back to Concept 2 though - they've been dominating the rower scene for decades. You'll find their rowers in...

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...

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...

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...

Bells of Steel Utility Bar Review

Bells of Steel Utility Bar - End Cap - Garage Gym Lab
Don't look now, but Bells of Steel is quickly making a name for themselves in the gym equipment industry. Originally launched as a Canadian company in 2010 selling kettlebells, the company has greatly increased its product catalog to include racks, bars, plates, benches, etc... Not only that, but they've also expanded into the United States with their warehouse in Indianapolis, IN. This...

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...
