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.

NormaTec Pulse 2 - Garage Gym Lab
Let me ask you something... Do you take your recovery seriously? I'll be honest... For a long time, I didn't really make recovery a priority in my training.

I mean, sure, I was rolling around on lacrosse balls, doing some self-myofascial release, and getting some manual work done...

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...

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...
