More Home Gym Stuff
« on: December 30, 2020, 09:39:43 PM »
I bought this Elites FTS SS Yoke Bar for Lisa's boy for his birthday in February.

They were out of stock and it was supposed to ship in January, but somehow I received it today and I never even got a shipment notification.



I may or may not use it myself.  I'll try it out at least once and see if I like it.

He won't be home until Monday so I took the liberty of unboxing it and moving it downstairs to our weight room.

It's a really nice and solid piece of equipment.

I won't use it before he does, but it's tempting....

I have a set of Proloc collars and also a set of Rogue HG axle bar collars. Both will work.

Nice. Sounds like you'll be putting the home gym to use for some time yet.

Always good to have the equipment you need.

Gyms won't be open here for at least 6 weeks and even then with bullshit protocols.

No regrets on any of the money I've spent so far.

same here. Although I don't have that much stuff I did buy some stuff while gyms were closed last year.

I got one of these.



and a set of these.



and a free standing bench.

I did recently go back to my gym but plan to keep these around just in case.

The machine is great. The powerblocks are just meh. I hate having to swap parts but they are way cheaper than trying to buy all the dumbbell sets. And take up so much less room.

I'm a fan of adjustable dumbbells, just not those ones.

Have you seen mine?

I was thinking about some power blocks, but glad I saw this.  I had my reservations but for some reason I was considering again.

My iornmasters were great, but I am lazy.  I will probably just get a rack set up at some point, but I feel guilty buying them.  (I know...it does not make sense)
