The 'Bath' Party in Iraq - Strawman 6/13/18


« Reply #52 on: March 22, 2013, 07:14:18 PM »


i couldnt tell you how many times, the narrow bar and the rack on the bench press pinched my hands when setting down the Bar

Haha yeah I remember that. It's like the rack was exactly where you wanted to grip plus the bar was so short it made it impossible to avoid adjusting the grip to avoid the pinch.  That, the collared bars, useless leg extension that also pinched, thick cement weights or those shit collars you used on the smooth metal bars it seemed like my first mish mash weight set was just one major pain in the ass from top to bottom.

I didn't get pinched on my old bench. The uprights were so narrow that I had to worry about racing to the other side and catching the end of the bar, before it hit the ground.

Eventually, I got smart and just pulled the bar towards me on the side I was unloading first. That kept the bar balanced, so I could go to the other side and unload it.

Yeah I remember that "pulling over to load" part too. The bar was so light and rack so narrow that even loading a 25 pound weight improperly on one side could cause the whole bar to slingshot over.

I've seen those ones you are talking about though, they were less than shoulder width.

I remember 8.8 lb and 14.4 lb plates in the plastic/cement weight set.  Also the plastic sleeve that you slid over the bar to act as the spacer between the plates.

Those were the Orbatron ones I mentioned earlier. I had a bunch of them (the 4 kg ones) and a few 5 kg (11 lb) ones, as well.

Of course, the worst part is when the plastic dry-rots and cracks. Then, you start benching and a chunk of cement falls in your eye.

The cement weights were just terrible. I am glad that once I started messing around with weights they were pretty much on their way out and then a couple years later it seemed like all you had to do was save up a hundred bucks and you could buy the 300lb olympic weight set with the bar at which point you were really up and running.

Yeah those pins were worthless! Came out at 45 ish degree angle and were impossible to safely secure even with pliers because it just didn't grip well with the smooth end of the bar. A good set of hammer curls were a fantasy with those things.

Cry Cry Cry Cry

He's lived a good life. Accomplished so much.
WTF you talking about - he was a snake oil salesman - he made a fortune deceiving naive gullible young men and using this guise stole their hard earned money.  Joe was a con man.  Sad how people put these shysters on a pedestal.
