New Gear

20130722-230401.jpg

There’s been some new additions to our gym. We just got a couple new bars and boxes. The boxes can be flipped to either a 20″, 24″, or 30″ height. The new bars are Bella Bars from Rogue. You can tell these bars from the others by the R on the ends of each bar. They are women’s weightlifting bars. The diameter is smaller than your normal bar, making it easier for smaller hands to keep their grip. They also have a better “spin” than the other smaller bars which should transfer over to making heavier lifts possible. These bars are a bit pricey so with them come a few gym rules. Please do not store the bars with the other bars. For now we are just keeping them behind the two platforms on the main floor. Lastly, these bars should not be on the squat racks. The racks over time wear down the knurling on the bar making them harder to grip. Ok that’s it for the rules, now please use them and make some lifts happen!

    Haha “make some lifts happen” I haven’t touched a bar in close to a month (summer adventure calls) I fully expect these bars to work their magic soon. I will be needing it. Rock On
