• AvatarBobby Hill on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListDo you know if any monolift attachments will fit the PR-4000 rack?
  • AvatarJohnny Wild on 2020 Folding Wall-Mounted Squat Racks ComparisonI don’t remember if the T3 or the stringers had the bolts needed but one or the other has them. Use the outer of the two sets of holes on the stringer. It’ll seem a little off, but tightens up right. You can use your titan pull up bar.
  • Avatarjeepers on 2020 Folding Wall-Mounted Squat Racks ComparisonHow does the T-3 rack connect to the Rogue stringers hardware wise? I have ordered the stringers (not here yet) and can't get a detailed view on how the Titan rack would mount to them. Can you no longer use the included Titan pull up bar when you do use the Rogue stringers? Thanks in advance, sorry for all the questions.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on What You Didn’t Know About Regular vs Competition Style KettlebellsI didn't word that very well. Regular kettlebells are cheaper. Most people at a typical gym aren't going to really appreciate having the uniform size of competition kettlebells for perfectly consistent movements, the way someone serious about training with them across many exercises and weights would. Depends on who the gym serves. But that's why a lot of gyms do fine with regular ones.
  • AvatarDavid on What You Didn’t Know About Regular vs Competition Style Kettlebells"The consistency factor is one reason why competition kettlebells are superior. Once you get good form down, you can go up in weight and hold it exactly the same, rest it on your forearm the same, etc. This reason is why commercial environments often stick with regular kettlebells even if they can afford competition style ones, unless the clientele is really into progressing with other movements besides two-handed swings." I don't understand your reasoning here. Why do commercial environments stick with regular kettle bells?
  • AvatarLogan on Some Shortie Power Racks for Low Ceilings and Basements – Updated 2020Just found that their site lists it as 11 or 12 depending which place your looking at, haha. I'm not sure to go with the t2 short or PR 1050 (i know the Titan has thicker steel, but I honestly just like the powder coat and look of the rep one more). I might be overthinking this lol
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Some Shortie Power Racks for Low Ceilings and Basements – Updated 2020I had checked with Titan and for a while I said it was 11 gauge, but at some point I became convinced that it's 12 gauge, due to not only the weight but I think also from someone who has the rack or better info. Unfortunately I can't remember what that source was. If someone can measure the wall thickness with a caliper, that will settle it! I mean, assuming they never changed it.
  • AvatarGuest on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master Listany luck? I am looking at doing the exact same thing
  • AvatarLogan on Some Shortie Power Racks for Low Ceilings and Basements – Updated 2020Hey, on the Titan site for the t2 1050 it says the steel is 11 gauge - where did you get that it was 12 gauge? Curious. Love the review btw!
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Gym Flooring Guide: Rubber Mats and Rolls (Updated 2020)Yeah, should be fine as long as the concrete is good.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Olympic Barbell Maintenance: Cleaning off Rust – Updated 2020That's pricey for an old rusty bar that you have to clean up. An old York bar with the original split sleeve design like that is a collector's item for sure, but I don't know how much they go for among collectors.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on The Best Barbell and Equipment for Starting StrengthI'll get some notes on those added to this guide soon, thanks!
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Made-in-the-USA Gym Equipment – 2020 Master ListUnless they say their products are made in the USA, it's generally a safe bet that they aren't. It's such a huge marketing benefit that it would be crazy not to use the fact.
  • AvatarRyan on Gym Flooring Guide: Rubber Mats and Rolls (Updated 2020)Hey David - thanks for writing this up. I just got a T3 for the garage gym I’m building at my new place. I was going to build a lifting platform and bolt it to that. Can I get away with sitting the platform and rack directly on the concrete? I have about 8’x16’ to work with, so would be nice to save money on 8x8 of flooring.
  • AvatarKevin.D on Olympic Barbell Maintenance: Cleaning off Rust – Updated 2020Came across this post as I found a old York bar going for 250 , since ive been looking for a used bar to start working out at home. I was wondering if this bar is worth restoring and using it or am i just better off buying a Boneyard bar from Rogue? Which i think is the side that im heading towards.

  • AvatarMichael on Olympic Bar Diameter: Why They Aren’t All the SameOK. Thanks. The ladies' bar will work for me. I don't need a super long sleeve.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Olympic Bar Diameter: Why They Aren’t All the SameThe only 25mm ones longer than 6.5ft I know of are the 8.5ft deadlift bars, pretty unwieldy for all purpose use. https://www.tworepcave.com/1152/deadlift-bars-comparison/
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListIf you could measure the diameter of its J-cup pegs, the rack's tubing size (sometimes it's in millimeters and not exactly 3x3"), and the distance between the rack's holes on center, that would be very helpful!
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on The Best Adjustable Dumbbells – Ironmaster vs PowerBlock vs BowflexSounds about right. They're okay for light lifting, but for anything you're at risk of setting down hard I'd go with the Ironmaster, which can take a lot of abuse.
  • AvatarMichael on Olympic Bar Diameter: Why They Aren’t All the SameDave. I prefer the 25 mm thickness. I just like it, but of course, I cannot find a standard length bar (generally only women's 79.5" ish) in 25 mm. Technically, it doesn't matter for me I guess, as the shorter sleeve length is plenty for the iron I am moving, but I wonder if you are aware of any standard length 25 mm options. Thanks
  • Avataronlineusername on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master Listi have one on the way -- let me know what measurements you need
  • AvatarCurt Morgan on The Best Adjustable Dumbbells – Ironmaster vs PowerBlock vs BowflexI've had 2 sets of Bowflex. One I left behind in Australia, so, I bought another here in the US. After 3-4 months, I dropped one on a VERY well-padded wool carpet. The Bowflex handle is made of plastic, and, the drop chipped it. Bowflex warranty is 2 yrs, but, THEY WOULD NOT REPLACE my handle, saying "you dropped it!!! It's YOUR fault." (Please show me a lifter who has NEVER dropped a weight). Now I'm looking at, a home gym. Do you think I'm even going to LOOK at Bowflex equipment? Apparently, judging by reviews, Bowflex REGULARLY refuses to honor their warranties.
  • AvatarJolly R on 2020 Folding Wall-Mounted Squat Racks ComparisonRogue has 4 pins that you need to put in to lock and take it off to unlock. Doing this before and after workout could become a *chore* if you're also vertically challenged (at least for the top ones). Also, if you have J-cups and Pull up bars installed, you will need to take all of this off. With the PRX, it takes 10 seconds and no need to take off the pull up bars or the J-cups. Another issue is the rogue scrapes your floor (opening and closing). With PRX, you avoid that too. With garage floor slopes, that could be another problem. I am in the market, and these are the things I could think of for my situation. I wish PRX pricing wasn't so high, but, with the COVID situation, it is only going higher.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on How to Get the Stink off New WeightsI would wipe them with a cloth, then go over them with a damp cloth to get any remaining dust. Any metal areas wipe dry again if your cloth was damp enough to leave it very wet.

  • AvatarJoshua Winter on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListOnce again, I appreciate your help. My barbell turned out great thanks to your article on that. I thought the Rep PR 4000 could accept Rogue Monster Lite Attachments, and that the PR 5000V2 could accept Monster Series attachments and vice versa. Is that incorrect?

Also, RML channel storage pair works perfectly on PR-4000 a well. Pretty much any attachment with just one 5/8 hole works perfectly
  • AvatarJim on 2020 Folding Wall-Mounted Squat Racks ComparisonI've been trying to figure this one out as well. I don't think it'll be a mere 8" from the wall. TL;DR it's a problem unless the product is redesigned. If you think about it: first swing one side inwards, let's say the left side just for this example. The left side's vertical post is now maybe 1-2" from the right side's hinge point, and normally the inner aspect of the right side would lay (nearly) flat to the wall, if the left side that you just finished folding in weren't already in the way. But it's in the way now. You start to fold in the right side, at which point the horizontal (41.5") tubing will start to impinge upon the now-folded-in left side's vertical post. (Imagine the left side's post rubbing the paint off the right side's 41.5" bar somewhere close to where the right side's hinge point is, long before you're able to swing the right side anywhere approaching a satisfactorily "closed" position.) If it were possible to easily dislocate/disassemble the right side's hinge poin…

  • AvatarShan on Another Gym Equipment Stock Status UpdateHi! I’ve seen some plates status says in stock, I’m not sure if I can purchase now cause it also says do not take orders I’m bit confused.
  • AvatarMichael on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListYeah. Easy to install with a little thought ahead of time. I have a sloped garage floor, as everyone does. But there is enough ply in the wall connectors to the arms to go up and down, so when folding the rack in, I just have to pick them up a little off the floor and fold them in. When extended, one side is of course not flush with the ground because of the slow, but I just have a couple of wood shims I put under the post. Not a bog deal. In case it helps anyone installing one of these things without the stringers (I didn't see them necessary), I just basically set up the whole system including my wood stringers on the garage floor, measured everything out, tightened everything down, etc., then picked it up and put it in place against the wall, shimmed up the one side and leveled it, and screwed it in to all the studs, etc. Hardest part was lifting it and moving it because that beast is heavy, but I got it done. If I had a second muscle man on hand to lift and move, it would have been…

  • AvatarMariana Du on Cleaning and Maintaining Workout EquipmentWhat happens if your rubberized weight gets scratched?- i.e. bad cat? Aside from covering the weight can anything be done? Thank you!
  • AvatarBiotrader on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListI made monster mini feet work on my monster lite rack by simply cutting a 6 x 12" piece of 3/4 inch thick stall mat and placing it underneath the feet. longterm, I'll have a fabrication shop cut off the back plate of the feet where it bolts to the uprights and weld on a longer piece with slotted/elongated holes so it can adjust and bolt onto the rack without the mat. For now, it works great and certainly adds stability. I also get the benefit of using the beautiful landmine 2.0 that would typically only work on a monster rack

  • AvatarBrian Thomas on Steel Inserts in Bumper Plates Coming Loose – How to Avoid ItYes, there are competition bumpers; I just called the store where I purchased and they said in this case there is a steel insert and plate beneath the rubber surface. Have you ever heard of this? I’ve yet to use the plates, so I’ll have to take another look at them. Thanks for your input.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Steel Inserts in Bumper Plates Coming Loose – How to Avoid ItThat doesn't sound right. I've never seen bumpers without inserts. They would break apart too quickly without the metal to stabilize the hole. You do mean bumpers and not rubber coated iron plates, right?

  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Olympic Barbell Maintenance: Cleaning off Rust – Updated 2020Pretty amazing what can be underneath what looks like a ruined bar! That's a great idea with sticking it in the PVC pipe to soak. I'm going to have to add that to the article. You're right about the extra pieces like bearings too. Some bars have a bunch of rings and sleeves in there to keep track of.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Some Shortie Power Racks for Low Ceilings and Basements – Updated 2020I think you're right that they don't want to recommend it for stability reasons. Unlike some racks the SML-1 uprights don't have much support. Otherwise the matador attachment will definitely fit and only uses one hole. I imagine if you mount it on the inside it might work? Might cause trouble. One way to find out!
  • AvatarJosh on Olympic Barbell Maintenance: Cleaning off Rust – Updated 2020Great article and very helpful. I’m actually in the process of doing this now and I got impatient and brushed the rust off while it was soaking in vinegar after 12 hours. I can’t believe how great the collars look already. To soak the bar itself, I went and got a stick of two inch PVC and filled with 1.5 gallons of vinegar. The only thing I would add is that when removing the smaller style hex bolts there will be ball bearings that could easily get lost or fall out. May be common sense to most, I don’t know. Either way, great article, very informative, and very accurate. Thanks for the help!
  • AvatarAlexis on Some Shortie Power Racks for Low Ceilings and Basements – Updated 2020Thanks for this. Wish I'd read it three months ago! I recently got the Rogue SML-1 to accommodate the problem of low basement ceilings. It's worked out great for squats and bench presses. One thing I was a bit disappointed to learn, however, is that Rogue says it is not compatible with any of the dip stations which they sell. I'm not sure if this is because the connectors are incompatible, or because they judge the stand is not stable enough to support the off-center load.
  • AvatarJason on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListI’m so interested in this too. I want to mount the rep lat pulldown to a Titan X3. The inside dimensions on the pr4000 is 41” vs 42” for the X3. Stabilizer is 43” Has anyone attempted this with some shims/adapters?
  • AvatarJohnny Wild on 2020 Folding Wall-Mounted Squat Racks ComparisonIt has a slight angle, but everything works. Also see my latest comment about using the Rogue socket pull up bar.
  • AvatarJohnny Wild on 2020 Folding Wall-Mounted Squat Racks ComparisonHey, I posted about the Rogue stringers working with the T-3 folding rack. I got tired of the 50” width and discovered that the Rogue Socket pull up bar with the Infinity sockets combined with the Rogue stringers makes the Titan 47”. The socket pull up bar is drilled nearly all the way through the bar for its mounting screws so its ultra safe. It only takes a minute to insert the bar into the sockets and tighten the 2 screws, nearly as fast as the original bar, which I can still use, just below the socket mounts. I bought mine from the boneyard, so it ended up being $114 shipped including the Infinity sockets. I also bought two longer standard 3/4 bolts from home depot for 27c each to make it easier to install. Anyway, it looks great with an orange bar and functionally much better than 50” width.
  • AvatarMitchell Gross on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListWould the Titan attachments for the T-2 Series (specifically the T-2 monolift) not fit the Rep PR-1100? I figure the .03 inch of tube size should not matter that much but it says requires 2 inch hole spacing and I can't tell why
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListSafety straps with loosely fitting brackets might work well enough as long as they aren't going to bounce out of place. Your best bet right now might to be carefully give some larger safety straps with 1" hardware a try, either the Rogue Monster or the 75x75mm Rep or Titan. Edit: The Valor BD-11 is 32" between uprights, so any straps will need to be a little longer than that.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListYep, York has some similar to that too, and I'm not sure if any of them are even compatible with each other.

Just wondering I have the bodycraft f430 seems verŷ limited to what attachments available apart from bodycraft own dip bars and j hooks.

  • AvatarBob S on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListI’m interested in trying to attach a REP Fitness PR-4000 Lat/Low Row Attachment to a Rogue RML-390F Flat foot monster lite rack.  The Rogue rack has 3x3” x 92” high uprights with ⅝” holes. The outside distance between rear uprights is 49” so the 43” REP rear base stabilizer seems like it could fit the Rogue rack (inside dimension between rear uprights: 49” - 2X3” = 43”).  That assumes the holes would line up. The Rogue uprights are an inch shorter than the REP’s so I would need a one inch shim at the top.  REP is coming out with a belt squat attachment that will work with the Lat Pull Down unit. This combination would be considerably cheaper  than the Rogue offering. Anyone have any comments?
  • AvatarJustin Stine on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListYou're kind of effed if you own the stainless steel drop-in style racking, as seen with the Legend Fitness Ultra Pro lineup, Hammer Strength power racks, dynamic Ultra line up, and the elitefts vs multi full lineup. Tried to order a set of elitefts multi-full rack j-cups along with the off-set pair to experiment with my Legend racks, but they are not making them due to covid-19.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListGreat, I'll probably add a note on it. I've been leery of the Hulkfit attachments because I noticed their J-hooks have cheap protective felt liners in them, as if that's going to last or do much. When they cheap out that badly I have to wonder.
  • AvatarCheryl on 2020 Folding Wall-Mounted Squat Racks ComparisonRogue's shipping is higher than PRX. Once you include shipping, the prices are almost identical for the Rogue RML-3W Fold Back Wall Mount Rack vs the PRX Profile with Pull up Bar. Any preference if the prices are almost the same?

  • AvatarDanny R on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListThanks for the reply; if you have any updates or any new info, I would surely appreciate it. Its unfortunate that Body Solid wouldnt create jammer arms for the GPR378, especially since its their flagship rack that is found in many commercial/ home gyms! Thanks again!!
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListThat's been bothering me too, and I've been wondering about the best way to revise things. Most people talk about hole sizes, even if the 1" they're talking about is really the hardware/peg size like with Rogue. I'm thinking it would be best for me to convert them all to hardware sizes as needed, with a note explaining this? Thanks for the additional details on Titan, Rogue and Rep.
  • AvatarLee on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListFYI, all your categories say "hole size" but some refer to holes some refer to hardware! Titan refers mostly to literal hole sizes whereas REP and Rogue tend to talk about *hardware* sizes, so it's easy to mix it up. You have the PR-5000, TITAN, and Monster listed as 1" holes; they're definitely all 1" *hardware.* You've got the Titan X3 correctly listed as 11/16" holes, but list the Monster Lite as 5/8" holes (it uses 5/8" *hardware* and would have to have ~11/16" holes). Oddly, the PR-4000 breaks the pattern and *does* have 5/8" holes (using M16 hardware).
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Top 4 Adjustable Flat/Incline BenchesYep, I've got to add a Rep bench in here for sure in the next update!

  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListThanks for sharing!
  • AvatarJPGC on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListKnowledge share: I bought some dip bars, from a different brand (ATX, from Germany) than my rack, whose peg is about 1/5" shorter in diameter than the hole in my rack's uprights. Ie) 20mm vs 25mm. I know it's kind of a weird measurement, but must be ATX's attempt at ensuring follow-up sales for their racks. Nevertheless, they work just fine. There is a slight, practically imperceptible slant downwards, but no play at all. I should note that while the peg is designed for a slightly smaller hole, the clasp around the upright is correct (50x50mm). My rack has an identical design to the Rep PR 1000 / Titan T2 (but comes from a brand in Spain). So, this is one of those cases where a slightly ill-fitting attachment is fine.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListAt the moment I don't know of any that would fit perfectly. You might have to get a larger size and retrofit it. Rep is coming out with lever arms soon for their 4000 and 5000 racks which won't fit perfectly either, but the quality of their stuff is great.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListIt sounds like it might fit. If you give it a shot, please let me know!
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListNot that I know of so far. Maybe something will pop up. Until then you might have to get a much larger attachment and retrofit it.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListI don't think it will be. Looks like it requires a very specific rack width and stuff.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListOk, I'll take a look and see about adding theirs!
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListYeah that sounds like an old rack for sure, like a throwback from the '80s? I think York or some company made a bunch of that style. I can't imagine any modern J-cups fitting on that kind of unique shape.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListYes, if the tubing size is also close enough that the attachment can wrap around it right.
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListFrom what I've heard, I think the Titan attachments like that might fit the Rogue racks better than the measurements would indicate, because of the slop between the peg and hole sizes. If you give it a shot, please let me know how it goes!
  • David KieslingDavid Kiesling on Power Rack Attachments & Compatibility – 2020 Master ListSomehow I don't have the Body Solid GPR378 listed yet. Maybe because the holes are an odd size. The Rogue jammer arms / lever arms might work fine. I'm not sure offhand about their hole spacing. I think I need to go through everything and find out the hole spacing of all the racks at some point.
