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...

Edge Fitness Football Bar with American Flag
If you can’t tell, I’m a huge fan of specialty bars.

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...
