    Sourcing replacement safety bars

    Hi all. So I recently set up a home gym with a budget cage. The cage is holding up pretty fine so far, but the safety bars that came with it where essentially useless. I believe they were stainless steel but hollow, so as soon as a mild weight was dropped on them (maybe up to 60kg) from a...

    Gym Direct Safety Squat Rack

    I recently bought a simple flat bench with the plan to use it with my squat rack to bench press from. Turns out that my existing squat rack is too narrow to bench from - either i hit my elbows or it's impossible to unrack the bar because it's too awkward. So i was going to throw it on ebay and...
