    Favorite Strength Training Equipment?


    Ok, hoping to get a lot of responses on this one.. What is everyone's favorite piece of strength training equipment, and what brand is it? Or post up your favorite equipment manufacturer. Whether it be Eleiko, EliteFTS, Metal, Inzer, Ivanko, Life Fitness (hammer strength), York, Spud, IronDawg Power... Just whatever you really like. Whether free weight or machine. Post it up!

    Tamoan: I like the fact that you've made a lot of your equipment, thats pretty sweet.

    Kristofer: Any idea what your favorite type of squat rack is and who makes it?

    I will get the name of it at my gym.

    Doesnt really have to be special. The one I use has adjustable/removable arms. Not enclosed.

    Any squat rack will work, though.
