Hey just wanted to ask if it was a good idea to put plastic sheeting under my stall matts on the concrete floor or is it not really needed? I have seen a few people doing it something to do with the moisture?

Also wanted to ask if anyone can advise me on a decent bench/with a good size back pad not the short length ones. Which is fairly cheap, for example does anyone have this one that can say any reviews?

looks good but I would like one with the attachment on the back.

Where does everyone else get there bumper plates/ bars etc from as there seems to be a large range price wise (obviously with Ivanko etc but I mean just general ones)

Just wondered if there was a for sale section or anything on here?

Going to turn my garage into somewhere to train so if anyone has any of the following for sale let me know, or even anywhere decent to get a good cage etc:

Decent bar
Olympic bumper plates
power cage
Platform (if not il just make one)
Rubber floor matting
The odd dumbbell eg 30,70,80,90,100,120 lbs
Decent bench (inclines and sits upright)
Century bob
Also if anyone has a platform for sale and stall matting

Anyone deadlift in there garage? The platform and matting will save the concrete wont it? or will it still break as well?

Hi there, im after some advice, basically I've been training for a while now but would like to get more into olly lifting and went to my first proper tutored session last week, basically I have a mobility issue.

I can squat with good form (so I think and have been told) and front squat ass to grass etc with good form, however I can squat ass to grass with no weight but I lean very far forward, (I do not do this with say 50kg).

As I am being taught with just the bar and a broom handle I am struggling to sink into my hips and duck down whilst trying to clean. I am 6 ft 2 and weigh around 19 stone. I have been told to keep my legs a little closer which makes it harder for me still. Its like my adductors/abductors are too tight without having a load to push them down, am I right in thinking this?

What can I do to improve my flexibility regarding this if it is this apart from just abductor and adductor stretches?

Thanks for the info waiting for them to be in stock now, just to ask about sizing, are weightlifting shoes sizes normally half a size bigger than your trainer size?

think the iron works are discontinued.
Most of the lads I know train in power perfects and get on fine with them, but the heel isn't solid and does deform slightly, I think its more of a hard foam rubber than a solid block like the higher end shoes.
Personally when im in the market for new shoes im going down the Nike Romaleos route over the adipowers as Adidas don't fit me well.
Know plenty of guys who have used do-wins for years and never had issues with them.
Suppose it just depends on what you have to spend and if you want Bright red of Luminous green things.

Why are the adidas considered more for the wider foot? :S are the Romaleos cheaper than 200 anywhere?

cant find the ironworks for sale in the UK?

Should I just get the adipowers? I know there more expensive just if they last me a long time that's fine. They just look more comfortable and seem to have more of a bridge support on the foot?

Has anyone tried both?

seems to be between the power perfect 2s then and adipower as mentioned are the heels roughly the same height?

I have mine but don't know what they are called although it doesn't matter as they've been discontinued .. They're 12 years old I suppose .

I tried some and they were s**t so sold them to my mate . Forget the name but they are the ones everyone says they are a bit heavy .

Hope this helps

lol Mark that was so helpful

I didn't mean to start an argument... what do most people use on here..

Hey there i'd just like some advice and previous experience with what weightlifting shoe to consider. Basically il be using these to squat in and some olly lifts, thanks.

So far I have been recommended:

Powerlift 2?

Power perfect 2?

or the adipower weightlifting shoe?

Or any other recommendations?

I know the last one is fairly expensive but I see it that if its best for comfort and support id rather spend the money as I know they would last me a long time.

Thanks, James
