    You may not be a lawyer so I don’t blame you for not understanding this, but I made a post on the message board first claiming the equipment. So the constitution guarantees that I get the equipment. Sorry, man

    Anyone ever deadlift to replace squats temporarily? How did it work out?

    One "benefit" of not being able to squat out of a rack is that my RDL weight has shot up. Now repping 5x475 with straps. Felt a little soreness in my glutes and hamstrings but not sure if this is going to keep my squat intact for a few months.

    The pain radiating down my arms after pull-ups was so intense I couldn’t even do tricep pushdowns. Feels.

    Internal rotation of my left hip has turned to shit 3.5 years post surgery. Probably my own fault for not keeping up with any sort of mobility work. Now my SI joint on that side hurts off and on.

    getting old does in fact suck.

    Question for you pros, best Olympic barbell for a home gym? Not looking to break the bank but not looking for metal splinters in my hands either. Was looking at some of Rouge bars but absolutely nothing in stock. TIA.

    By Olympic, are you referring to Olympic sized or Olympic weightlifting specific?

    What type of lifting are you planning on doing?

    There's a difference between an Olympic Barbell and a Barbell for Olympic lifts.

    Bench and squat. That’s it. Just your standard gym bar I guess? Not looking for anything as far as Cross Fit or Olympic lifts.

    i did notice someone in the comments mentioned it was at one point $199. The pricing on the one you suggested it cheaper and also ships free. Since I’m looking for the best value I may just pull the trigger on that one and it seems you have some clout when it comes to these type of things. Thank you.

    5 weeks out from my next meet. Plan on setting some "old guy" state records. Biggest goal is to hit 375 again on bench.
