A few months back I picked up a couple pairs of the Thompson Fatbells. After having spent a good amount of time messing around and training with these bad boys, I figured I’d spend a few minutes telling you what I think about them.
I hate to ruin the surprise right out of the gate, but the Vulcan Alpha Bumper Plates are probably the most unique, versatile, and reasonably priced bumper plates currently on the market, and I’m extremely excited about finally getting to review them.
Of course, I realize that there are more exiting things to actually read about than bumper plates, but I truly believe that you’ll be glad to have discovered and read this review if and when you find yourself in the market for new plates – they’re about as close to the perfect bumper as it gets.
This is a review for the new Ohio Deadlift Bar from Rogue Fitness – an extra long, high whip power bar built exclusively for heavy deadlifts. A bar that; as I think most of you will agree; rivals both the Okie and Texas deadlift bars not only in specifications, but also in price.
What shoes do you deadlift in? Do you have actual deadlift shoes, or do you pull in regular sneakers? Perhaps you use your Oly shoes, or maybe you just pull barefoot. Does it even matter?
That’s right, I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect pair of gym shorts. A pair of shorts to train in that are comfortable, lightweight, flexible, preferably affordable, and short enough to squat in without having to worry about material catching on the knees or sticking to the thighs. Bonus features would include moisture-wicking, breathable, and good looking – or at the very least not stupid looking.
The new Eleiko Power Lock is a unique and rather interesting take on the classic Eleiko Training Bar. Matter of fact, the Power Lock is really just a variant of the Eleiko Training Bar. They share the same hardware, same specifications, and same high level of performance, only the new Power Lock has different sleeves – really cool looking sleeves with a series of deep grooves.
If you’ve been lifting for any length of time, you undoubtedly know about the Inzer Forever Power Belt and the Pioneer Double Suede Power Belt. You may also know that there is no shortage of praise and positive reviews for both of these belts; so much so that telling you that these belts are awesome wouldn’t exactly be breaking news. So setting that aside, the question then becomes how does one choose between two popular and seemingly identical belts?
