    help me find this piece of exercise equipment


    hey bros this might not be the right section to post this but oh well. when i was younger my dad had this piece of exercise equip that i loved. now i cant find it anywhere. its a long spring with handles on each end and you just grab both handles and crush them together to build arms and chest. if you still dont know what im talking about it was the bar that arnold was using in the movie pumping iron during the modeling scene. a girl was on his back and 2 were at his feet and he was using the spring bar. ive tried all the sporting good stores around me. i was wondering if anyone knows a site that has this thing. thanks

    haha , those are isometric (I think? ) bars. My dad had two of them, seemed popular in the 70's. I wouldn't think they would make them anymore, but I found a site doing a google search. It's called "Steel Spring" about halfway down.
