If your only goal is to keep it away from your kids... get this

This will not protect against a motivated burglar with a $5 pawn-shop hammer.


I'm being informed that the above safe is garbage after a few months. Back to the drawing board.

Get something from LockSAF/LockSāF if you can find it for sale... Deviant Ollam (world-renowned expert on 21st century security and locks) suggests the PBS-001 model, but it appears to be out of stock everywhere.

u/Smashed_Adams · 42 pointsr/Fitness

Honestly any of the ones that wrap on the top of the door frame work. Most around $20 and worth it. Here's one for example, [ProSource Multi-Grip Chin-Up/Pull-Up Bar, Heavy Duty Doorway Trainer for Home Gym] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002YQUP7Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_SKMDyb2M4JCE2)

I tried quitting many times. I smoked for 20 years and tried quitting for 20 years. In the last year I got really serious. I listened to hypnosis everyday for 6 months. This was a combination of Paul Mckenna and Richard Bandler Programs. I used box breathing and a grip trainer. I also took up walking in the park which helped me to relax. I listened to the Allen Car audio book on repeat in my car, about 10 times, and read the book 4 more times. After all the toys and hypnosis, it was just embracing the suck. My breathing is 10 times better. I can climb stairs now without dying. My overall stamina is amazing compared to before. Sex is better. food tastes better. I haven't even had a craving in about 22 months, they are completely gone. I even enjoy the smell of people smoking around me but the trigger to smoke in broken and gone. I used to be afraid to quit because I didn't want to endure the torture of life long cravings, but I was wrong. Now as a nonsmoker I don't have cravings. smokers have cravings but now I am free. you can be too. The biggest thing that held me back was my belief that it wasn't possible and that I would never be able to function without cigarettes. Sometimes its amazing to be wrong

u/MasterChibbs · 34 pointsr/UpliftingNews

Pepper spray/gel is your friend.

I rarely leave the house without it.

Violence can and will come out of nowhere.

I don't want to kill anyone, I don't own a gun. I'll sure as hell put someone into pepper gel hell if someone is at risk because of them though.

If they have eyeballs or lungs, it'll stop them.

Edit: Amazon Link for the kind I daily carry. Its no joke, if you EVER press down the button for any reason, wash your hands as soon as possible and DON'T EVER TOUCH YOUR FACE until you do. Do not EVER think of it as a toy. Not only will this stuff temporarily blind someone, but it'll also cause them to choke and have problems breathing. This is only meant for very serious situations where someone is committing a felony. Use of it outside those situations and your not protected by the law, your committing assault if not something worse. Spraying this on someone with breathing problems could kill them.

u/Make-_-Me-_-Smile · 33 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

>Buying a gun is not a spur of the moment decision, not everyone is cut out to be a gun owner.

Thank you! This cannot be understated! You are more likley to be harmed or killed with your own gun. Every time the gun is loaded and drawn it must be understood that there is a potential for you, the person wielding the weapon, to shoot. If you shoot in self defense you must shoot to kill.

It's not a wishy washy subject, it's a go big or go home you need to be 100% in and make a careful decision and commit to the training, and do it well.

It's easy to forget those details and just make an off the cuff remark when it's something you grew up around and just 'knew'. So thanks again, Notmykl for the reminder.

OP would likley be in close quarters and need to carefully determine caliber, etc to ensure no walls are pierced, innocent bystanders struck. Tons of varyables to consider. Doubly so with a pending adoption.

You bring a good point especially considering that OP is from the UK and most likley didn't grow up around firearms as many of us in the USA and other countries did.

In that case Tactical Pepper Spray Gel is a better option. Gel is much safer than spray. I've had several police officers suggest this as an alternative to a firearm.

u/tsunami643 · 32 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

You wanted this one too, didn't you.

Great find regardless, OP.

u/hotshot8473 · 27 pointsr/MechanicAdvice

Here's the /r/autodetailing answer for you:

  • Pretty much everything in there is plastic. Literally everything. Don't stress too much about the materials, you'll know the difference.

  • Wipe down most things with a damp microfiber cloth, this will get 99% of it

  • If water won't get it clean, use an automotive all purpose cleaner and a microfiber towel

  • Use a glass cleaner without ammonia (like Invisible Glass) to wipe down the glass and mirrors. Ammonia, like found in normal Windex, can cause issues with window tint.

  • If you're going the extra mile, use a product like 303 Aerospace Protectant to give the plastic a little UV protection.

A backpack will be awkward, hurt your shoulders, and not be too scalable. This works just fine for me.

u/MFesLoca · 24 pointsr/running

I swear by my foam roller.

I did a gnarly set of stair sprints yesterday morning and as the day progressed I was sure I was going to be hurting something fierce today. So before I went to bed I foam rolled the shit out of my legs in various ways and woke up good to go.

You can use a tennis ball on your feet in the much the same way.

u/Rhynegains · 24 pointsr/personalfinance

Here is a post I've seen before that had saved. Note: I have quite a bit of this equipment but there are many options out there. Find stuff similar to this.

Here's the beginner sets I usually recommend:

  • Dicks Sporting Goods 300lb Weight Set which is currently at $190. It also includes a bar. I do not recommend dropping these for Deadlifts, though.

  • Fitness Reality Full Cage which is currently for $260.

  • Fitness Gear Bench which is currently about $90.

    That'll probably run you about $600 after taxes. But that will be everything you would actually need.

    There's several other things I got along the way which I think you would find useful, but not necessary.

    Additional items:

  • Weight Storage Tree which should hold everything from your set.
  • Bar Weight Locks currently $10.
  • Floor Protection
  • Pull Up Bands
  • Back Extension/Sit up Bench

    I made my homegym and I absolutely love it! It's my temple. Here's a note though.... you need to think long and hard on if you will use it. I work out 3-5 times a week. I stretch in there every day. Will you use it for 3 times a week minimum? Are you willing to move it when the time comes? Can you spare a 8x10ft area for this equipment?
u/emma_troika · 23 pointsr/niceguys

oh jesus, he's one of those PLS RESPOND losers. I love/hate those.

this one is legit creepy though. he's outright stalking you. jesus christ. you need to get pepper gel. it's like pepper spray, but better. they sell it on amazon for like 5-10 bucks or something. saber is a good brand.

I've relied on that one for years and it's never let me down.

u/FastandFuriousMom · 23 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

I bought my girls theirs off of Amazon, there are tons of different styles and products. This is the one I bought based on reviews and after talking to a local law enforcement officer in my district. Here is their main website that covers all sorts of safety stuff for law enforcement and private individuals.

They come with an expiration date as well, keep in mind, 4 years.

Harbinger Polypropylene Dip Belt with 30-Inch Steel Chain https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001P0S3XU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_F83UCb7QT43VW

I use one of these, works great. Secure and centers the weight right between the legs.

u/Jack_Shid · 19 pointsr/CCW

The bottom line is, all of these safes are designed to keep honest people honest. A determined crook will be able to get your guns, no matter what you store them in.

Your best bet would be to get the best safe that you can afford, then figure out a way to make it invisible. Thieves won't try to break into your safe if they don't see it.

I have 2 handgun safes. One is this one. It's bolted to a heavy nightstand, 2 feet from my head while I sleep. There is only a gun in it while I'm asleep. Its whole job is to keep my gun out of my 2 year old daughter's hands while I sleep, yet give me pretty quick access if I need it.

My big safe is bolted into the concrete floor in my unfinished basement, hidden behind a false wall that I created from 2x4's and plywood. If you didn't know it was there, you'd never find it.

u/skinrust · 18 pointsr/preppers

You're asking a very broad question while looking for specifics, making it very hard to pinpoint an answer. I'll give my advice on bug out bag items.

The bag itself - Should be a solid backpacking bag. Keep it light enough that it's manageable. For a very fit individual, the max weight should be your body weight divided by 3. Most of us are not that fit, so adjust accordingly. It should have hip support, well stitched straps, several compartments and a way to attach things to the outside (molle webbing, carabiner loops or exterior straps). Should be weatherproof.
Water - Depends entirely on your location. I live in Canada - Land of lakes and rivers. I wont need to carry a ton of water all the time. I've got a sawyer squeeze as my primary water filter. The collapsible water bottles it comes with work great for water storage as well. Wife and daughter carry a lifestraw as backups. We have some iodine drops as well.
As far as water carrying devices go, i find nalgene bottles work great. Theyre light and strong, and come in various sizes. A canteen is great if you want to use it to cook over a fire. Its not a bad idea either to have a large (5 litre+) collapsible water container. They're plastic and light. I havn't used mine extensively enough to recommend.
Sharp Things - I've got a Kabar as my primary fixed blade. It's tried and true. Good metal, full tang. I've got a leatherman wave multitool. Carry it everyday on my belt. Super handy. I should really add a 3-4" folding knife to my pack as sometimes the kabar is too big, and the multitool is hard to clean.
I also carry a Cold steel shovel. I looked into folding shovels, and they didnt seem reliable. Moving parts means they're more likely to fail. I haven't used this one extensively, but the few times i have tried it, its done an excellent job. If your pack's too heavy, put this one in your car.
Food - Your typical protein bars, dried rice/bean mix, snickers, small jar of PB, oatmeal and dehydrated fruit. A small bit of olive oil packs a ton of calories and adds flavour. It's good to have a small container of salt and pepper, or other spices to add flavour. You can grab MRE's or those mountainhouse dried meals, but theyre expensive. If you regularly buy pepperettes or jerkey, stick some in your bag and rotate it out when you buy it next. Multivitamins can keep you up if youre not getting a ton of food, but dont rely on them. Bring any meds you need, as well as tylenol or aspirin.
Hygiene - Pack a couple rolls of TP. Toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant (chuck if too much weight), wash cloth, soap, soap for clothing, feminine products (if applicable), couple garbage bags (can separate dirty clothes), wet wipes, lip balm, hand sanitizer. Sun screen and bug spray in small bottles.
Clothing - Carry at least 7 pairs of good socks. Some warm ones if the location's cold. Extra shirts, underwear are essential. Pants/shorts and sweater are optional (besides whatever you're wearing). Stick your clothing in a waterproof sack. Try to keep only clean, dry clothes in there (no airflow + damp = mold).
-Paracord and rope
-Sewing kit
-Tent patching kit (if you have a tent or a tarp)
-Tarp (who saw that coming). Doesn't have to be massive. Just know how to set it up to keep you dry.
-Fire Source. Have many. Lighters are cheap, stash away a bunch (7?). The lighter leash is awesome. You should be able to find that cheap at a corner store. Storm matches, for when its rainy. I think these are what I got. You can light them in any weather, put them under water, and they'll still be lit. Not a bad idea to carry regualr matches in a waterproof container. Firestarter packets are great. I just soak cotton balls in Vaseline. Flint and steel is cool, but only useful if youve exhausted all other fire starting methods.
-Super Glue
-Safety pins
-Zip ties
-Light. Hand crank flashlight is awesome. If you have a battery powered one, carry spare batteries. The mini maglite has a belt holster. Those small LED flashlights are great too. Grab a few glowsticks.
-fork and spoon
-emergency blanket or emergency sleeping bag. Only useful if you're SOL.
-sleeping bag for your location. If its warm you don't need this. Can use a hammock or sleeping pad. Try and keep these small as they take up a ton of space.
-Compass. Useful if you have a map.
-Map of your location/where youre going.
-Signal mirror and a good whistle.
-Fishing supplies. I've got an emmrod. You can put a fairly small cheap reel on here. I've got the shimano ix2000. It casts a pretty good distance. Hooks, weights, bobs etc. Can all fit in small waterproof containers or camera film containers. Dont forget line! Mines already on the reel. A fishing vest gives you lots of little pockets to keep things in arms reach.
-First Aid kit. There's extensive lists online depending on how large you want it. Some gauze, band aids, polysporin, burn cream are a good start. Try and build it yourself, don't buy the gimmikey premade ones. Keep yours in a waterproof Tupperware container.
-Tiny roll of Gorilla Tape
-Games. Some dice and a deck of cards go a long way. Don't underestimate the value of laughter. If a sudden collapse ever happens, these might save you from depression.
-Headlamp. I've got this rayovac one (i think). Seems easy on batteries and has lasted a few camping trips. Haven't put serious use on it tho.
-Eating equipment. A mug and a small plate go a long way. A folding pan goes a long way, but is heavy. I would love to learn to use a pressure cooker over fires.
-Handkerchief or travel kleenex
-Bandanas. 3 of them.
-Bungee cords can be useful, but they run the risk of snapping and taking out an eye.
-Ziplock bags are handy. Keeps a lot of small things organized and dry.
-Pencils, Pens, notepad/book, sharpie.
-Hatchet is useful, but heavy. Take one if you can. The sven saw is awesome and hasn't broke on me yet.
-Spare pair of glasses (if applicable)
-Some sort of firearm is almost necessary. I don't have one yet, but i was planning on a 10/22 takedown. It's small and easy to pack. Bullets are light. If you need more stopping power than a .22, you're in a heap of trouble. Guns are not my specialty (can you guess), so ill leave it up to you
-In lieu of a firearm, you could grab a crossbow. If that's still too much, a good slingshot will do great.
-phone booklet and address's. In case your phone craps out and you cant charge it.
-A small windable clock is great. A solar watch is better. I think thats the one i have.

All this stuff is useless unless you know how to use it. Do your research, take some courses. Learn the necessary skills to survive, because that's what's really necessary. I like Les Stroud's (survivorman) book Survive!. Learn to tie knots, fish, hunt, forage, fight, build a fire in all conditions, etc.
If you have questions on the use of any of the above items, ask away. Any advice or suggestions, I welcome those too.

Best $20 I've invested in lifting this past year. Went from where you're at to wide grip chin @60lbs x3 and regular pull-up @70lbs x3 in a matter of months. Great for dips too. My current 5/3/1 4-day split routine calls for high rep pull-up on dead lift day, which is now has me thinking I'm going to add a heavy day on Saturday mixed in with my cardio. It's my best lift according to www.symmetricstrength.com

u/Whoami_77 · 15 pointsr/SeattleWA

>mist or fog sprays can be susceptible to wind and you could end up spraying yourself if you aren't careful.

Gel spray is the better alternative. It's a bit bigger than traditional self defense sprays.

u/humblyawsome · 15 pointsr/news

It's fine if you don't want one, so don't feel pushed by me...

However, it takes about 5-10 minutes to clean a gun, is easy after the first time, and most guns only need it every few hundred rounds. Ammo lasts forever and is safe (unless you store it in an oven), so you can buy in bulk when it's on sale and just store it.

If safe storage is a concern, you can buy one of these and stop kids while being able to get it fast if someone breaks in at night. Guns also hold their value well, so if you don't like it you can sell it for not much loss...

Again though, if you don't think you want to spend the money and time that's totally fine. If you don't think shooting is much fun, that's also fine but you might want to give it a try first ;)

u/rejoinedReddit · 13 pointsr/climbing

I use the Theraband Flexbar. There are multiple colors, each representing a different resistance level, but the premise is basically that you’re loading the muscle while releasing, as opposed to how it’s loaded while you climb. Highly recommend it, and it works for both golfers and tennis elbow.


u/Awken · 13 pointsr/ainbow

I asked my friend who is a gun/self defense nut what brand of pepper spray I should buy. He recommended Saber Red Gel. Its long range, a gel instead of a spray so you're less likely to get sprayed accidentally when you use it, and has tear gas mixed in for good measure. I bought two cans, one for me and one for my girlfriend.

u/kkeut · 13 pointsr/UnresolvedMysteries

>a 3-inch blade is pretty small compared to other knives, except for the ones the children can use.

that's not really accurate. it's pretty much the most common size for a folding knife actually; in many states a folding knife with a blade over 3" can be considered a concealed weapon. plus, big knives are harder/heavier to carry and have no real use for the 'extra' length to justify the annoyance of carrying it. most adults who carry knives around with them (there are legit reasons) would have one of around this size.

the official BSA knife is 2.75". so is the one i have on my desk right now, which I'm sure many thousands of adults carry around.

u/bnlite · 12 pointsr/xxfitness

I ran into this type of problem a few years ago. Option one - go straight to the gym so you don't see his puppy dog eyes (I tried doing this and it didn't work for me haha). Option two, take that $40/month, put it in a cookie jar or something where it is out of sight and out of mind, then buy some equipment when you have enough. I'd recommend only getting one thing at a time in order to make sure you don't get overwhelmed by your sudden choices. For example, when I did this I found a set of dumbbells on Craigslist for $30 that had 3 different weights. Not a huge discount but reduce reuse recycle and all that. Next thing I did was buy a prohands grip master to work on my finger strength https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0006GCBL4/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1467465386&sr=8-2&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=prohands&dpPl=1&dpID=51-bY1uRjzL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1 . Next I bought new shoes because mine were causing foot pain (apparently I'm a wide who knew?).

It's a few years now and I have a decent home gym. My commute isn't 4 hrs round trip anymore but I still like the flexibility, especially when I woke up early this morning and decided to do my workout then instead, and didn't have to wait for the gym to open.

We just got a new puppy, the previous dog I couldn't bear to keep cooped up is now an old man. She gets antsy because he gets tired. I've made a game of running sprints with her. Also probably going to pick up some random PVC or something to start doing pole weaving and etc.

I know it sounds daunting and just impossible. Going to the gym can be great at helping you focus and get out of the house. I found that for myself trying to get to the gym was adding so much stress. It sounds like you still get the chance to get out and socialize (unlike I did at the time haha) so I wouldn't focus too heavily on the gym. Heck, if you have the space you could probably find some 2x4s and create an outside area to workout that is flat. My uncle lives in a trailer in rural Texas and that's what he did. He says his favorite part is the ice cold showers after.

Sorry this post was so long, I really understand the difficulty you are feeling and I hope one of my ideas helps!

u/cYnbios · 12 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards
u/Trollygag · 12 pointsr/guns

Ikea furniture is not going to stop a kid.

Mount a small safe and most your problem will be solved.

My parents just put guns out of reach until I was old enough to be told not to touch them. If you expose your children to guns at an early age, they won't have any interest or curiosity to explore or play with them when you aren't around guiding them safely.

Also, congrats. My wife had our first child 2 weeks ago.

I'm in the process of cancelling my gym membership and setting up home gym. I found this squat rack on amazon prime that looks good. I just wish it had safety bars. Any one else have a better recommendation on a modest squat rack? I already checked craigslist in my area, nothing great.

No one should have to ever see groce gril titties. That's just gaaayyy.

I hate my local gym(s). So. Damn. Much. I know it's just me. I'm impatient, intolerant, and generally just can't stand the douchers everywhere. So, I finally finished up my garage gym. It's not pretty, but it works. I just need a few more plates, and a really good deal on a row machine (and to clean up the other half of the garage).

You might want something more elaborate, and they make this kind of style, which has way more options.

u/IM_A_WOMAN · 11 pointsr/Fitness

I know you have plenty of advice already, but I bought this one in October last year, use it frequently and have no marks on my door. I had the same concerns you do, so I wrapped a few old shirts around it and it works perfectly!


You can see the shirts and what the frame looks like. I've used it pretty extensively since getting it.

you're gonna be hard pressed to find a full cage under that price point.

i used valor fitnessbd-9 power squat stands up until my squat started breaking 300 lbs for reps. after that point, not having full safety bars was getting dicey.

if you're willing to go up to $250, i've been using the fitness reality 810XLT for well over a year, and it's held up beautifully.

u/joelav · 11 pointsr/woodworking

another killer set of scales.

Can I make a suggestion? I read below you are using the Sarge kits - which run about 18 bucks. While the scales are awesome, the knife itself - well, it's not good. Garbage pivot, tip down, non-reversible pocket clip, 440C (gross) and an "ambidextrous" thumb stud which doesn't matter because it sould only be carried in the right pocket anyway.

For not a lot more, you can scale a really nice knife. The RAT II is very highly praised and recognized in the knife community and even though it comes with scales already, it's super easy to make scales for

u/Adoraci · 10 pointsr/AutoDetailing
u/faustrex · 10 pointsr/quityourbullshit

When I first started lifting weights almost ten years ago, it was on an adjustable Bowflex Dumbell set (this one ).

So, the way those weights work is that each side of the handle is dialed in. So if I set both sides to 50, that means the overall weight is 50 lbs. If you're inexperienced and kind of an idiot (yo, wassup), you might think you're lifting 100 lbs. when you're actually only lifting just 50.

Of course, like most people starting to lift, I post my workouts online looking for validation. I did a bench press with 90 lbs. What I actually did was 180 lbs., which isn't bad for starting out, but what I posted online was 360 lbs. 90 x 4.

People saw it, and I knew I was fucked up when someone from my ship (I was on a destroyer in the Navy at the time) mentioned that was more than NFL prospectives are capable of, and my wiry ass was just doing reps of it like nothing.

I still cringe when I think about it.

u/Krog_The_Mighty · 10 pointsr/nsfw
u/xfoxyx · 10 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I found bags for weights not so comfy overtime. My advice would be to rethink the weight attachment to your body.

  1. Poor man's style - rope / karate belt wrapped around your waist and through the plates. If it hurts too much, add a sweater around hips for padding
  2. If you're a climber you can use climbing harness
  3. My favorite option - You can buy dip belt, something like this
  4. Use a weight vest

    Dip belt pros - cheap, can attach shitload of weight, perfect for dips and pullups. Cons - weights swinging on the chain can get irritating

    Weight vest pros - weights close to your body - perfect for pushups, handstand push ups. Cons - not so comfy for pull ups and dips (movement limitations), impossible to overload / add more weight than it's build for.


u/nickstl77 · 10 pointsr/DoesAnybodyElse

I use a foam roller, works every time. Put foam roller on floor, lay down on it so the roller is going across your back, not vertically. Roll up and down while letting your back relax.

Something like this one. It needs to be the very stiff kind otherwise it won't work.


u/Bloodless_ · 10 pointsr/creepyencounters

Be very careful with this. Normal men in their 60s do not sexually pursue teenagers. Normal men listen when you say "no."

Next time don't apologize and blame it on policy or an imaginary boyfriend or that you're busy, because that leads this type on and it makes them think you would otherwise be interested, and they will try to wear you down. Don't say "oh I'm sorry, I can't because..."

Just tell the truth: "I am not interested in that. Please don't ask me again."

The most important thing I learned at that age is that you, yourself, have to be the "reason" you're not giving out your number. That gives them nothing to work with. Also, don't smile, don't be cute or quiet or unsure in any way. Make direct eye contact when you say "don't ask me again."

If he persists, escalates, or gets aggressive with you in any way, call the police. Don't deal with it yourself. They will let him know why it is inappropriate for a man in his 60s to try to force a teenager to have sex with him.

You would also be wise to get some pepper gel and keep it on you at all times at work. Better to have it and never use it, than to arrive at that moment wishing you had it. I speak from experience. Be safe.

  • ~$7-8 Sanrenmu 7010/710 - You can find these at Gearbest for cheap as hell when they have sales but they're absolutely $30 worth of knife
  • ~$10-20 Opinel no.6-12 - Depends on blade size/steel/handle wood. #6 is under 3in blade if that kind of thing matters.
  • ~$20 CRKT Drifter
  • ~$20 Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara2
  • ~$20-25 Ontario Rat II or Rat I
  • ~$30 Victorinox Cadet Alox
  • ~$30 Kershaw Cryo
  • ~$35 CRKT Ripple
  • ~$35 Spyderco Persistence
  • ~$40 Kershaw Skyline - Often on sale in the ~$30 range
  • ~$40 Kershaw Leek - Same sales as with the Skyline \^^

    Honorable Mention: Case knives. Traditional lockbacks. Hard as nails and pretty to boot. True pocket knives. Your grandfather (possibly great grandfather) had one. Good stuff the lot of them. $25-50 will get you a legacy knife that you can carry and use and then pass to your kid.

    You don't need to spend $200 to get a quality, durable, reliable knife. I've owned all of these knives at one time or another and loved every one of them. Sure they needed sharpening more often and sometimes something a little more drastic (Sanrenmus are often cheaper to replace than fix) but the value is insane. Plus, lets face facts; we're much more likely to break out our Cadet when we get box duty than our Sebenza.

    Knife enthusiasts (brothers) if there's a weighed and measured cheapo that I forgot, let me know.
u/vorgain · 10 pointsr/EDC

From what I can tell, for a "concealed" knife the blade limit is 4" - the 2.5" is only for on school grounds. So unless you're a student, you can get something with a longer blade.

And in that case I recommend the Ontario Rat Model II. It's $30 instead of $20, but mine has done me well for a few years now.

If you are a student, maybe go with a Kershaw Shuffle from Walmart or Dicks or something. My girlfriend has one of those and likes it well enough.

Since people seem really interested in how I could possibly spend what I spent, allow me to share what I bought.

This is the lighter set:


This is the heavier set:


They aren't gold- or diamond-encrusted, but they did offer me flexibility in the very limited space I had available at the time, and they've served me well.

And remember that my earlier post mentioned that the right answer for OP depends on his/her goals and priorities. For me, living in a small place, $700 (or whatever I spent) gave me a way to conveniently train in-home and save $100/month and commuting costs on a gym membership.

Am I as swole as the guy posting that you can't get "a full workout" with the setup I have? Of course not, have you seen that guy? He's a total beast. Super tough.

But with these dumbbells and a pull-up bar, I've managed to make great personal improvements that I'm quite happy with.

u/15goudreau · 9 pointsr/bikecommuting

I'm lucky that I don't have a long commute. But this is by far the best way to get to work!

Edit: with links!

Little info on the bike for any others who are curios.

Bike: 2016 Raleigh Furley (on discount was ~$750 with tax). I love this bike it's awesome. Chromoly steel, real soft ride. Single speed so it's 0 maintenance. Last but not least, disc brakes. Not the best, but they are much better than rims especially in weather of New England.

Tires: Gatorskins 25mm

Honjo Fenders: Superb, takes a while to install. I could have a used a few more brackets to hold everything together better too. Definitely going to get a mudguard for the front maybe the back as well.

Rack is the Topeak explorer for disc brakes. Two Ortlieb back roller city panniers.

Misc: I have a cateye volt 700 for front light and the cateye rapid x3 for a tail light, both are super bright even in the daytime!

Bike computer: Old nexus 5 that I hold on with a quadlock to track everything to strava. I use Ipbike which hooks up to my duotrap and my scosche heartrate monitor.

If I had the grand and the space in my house, A power rack, barbell, bench, and spend the remaining $500 on either craigslist plates and a set of 50lb PowerBlock Elites (expandable to 90), or bumpers plates if crossfit and Oly are more your thing. Either way you go with the second half of the money, that's a solid budget setup for that amount, mostly new gear too.

u/deosama · 8 pointsr/Fitness

I recently purchased my home gym, all in all, it was about $1300.

I bought this half rack - $350

This bench - $100

This bar and set of plates - $250

These Dumbbells - $600

These Rings - $34

This belt - $27

Total if you buy it all today: $1361

I looked to get as much of it as I could while it was on sale, or discounted. I also went to raise.com and got something like 15% off a Dick's Sporting Goods gift card, so I got it for an even better price.

It allows me to do basically everything I need to do, and I've bene loving it! Let me know if you have any questions.

u/IANALAMA · 8 pointsr/Ultralight

I carry an Opinel No 8 everywhere i go. i use it to cut food and light gardening work (trimming, pruning, cut twine to tie up tomatoes, etc). "everywhere" includes backpacking, and any kind of travel. it's short enough and no spring assist, so it doesn't conflict with local laws when i travel.

when i'm backpacking i also carry a small wire key ring with the following:

Key Ring

Leatherman Micra

Gerber Shard

Streamlight Nano

if i'm doing any kind of campfire, then i bring a mora companion to do any processing that i'll need.

u/DrippyWaffler · 8 pointsr/infp

Haha bro you're good. They probably scoff at your eating healthy efforts because you're in fine shape. I've put on a little chub to deal with the cold (I'm a tshirt+shorts all year round kinda guy) and when I mention working it off again people laugh at me and say I need to get bigger. Obviously they mean muscle rather than fat, but that's beside the point.

In terms of your face, I'm a straight dude so I can really give no actual help but you look fine to me. Girls seem to dig the John Snow look.

When you're talking to girls about yourself don't use words like "transitional period." Ask them questions about stuff, and if they ask you questions keep it to the point and as cheerful as possible.

In fact that's the one bit of "brutal honesty" I can give. Put a smile on that face.

I don't know how old you are, but you look about my age. I'll chuck a picture of me up when I can wrangle one to show you what I mean.

Sorry for the poor quality, I have an Ace 2 :(

I dive in 14 degree Celsius water, so I need the insulation. Under a shirt it's barely noticeable. In summer I get into shape more but for the mean while I like it where it is. Get one of these and you're sorted. This will do far more good than eating habits. (They help too though)

Me with similar expression and pose as the one in your photo. Phone isn't in the right place but who cares.

Look how much a smile and body language does!

So, in summary.

  1. Don't talk about healthy eathing and transitioning and whatnot. Ask her some questions, answer her questions to you. I know it's easy for us INFPs to off on tangents, so try and stick to the point.

  2. If you're really worried about your body shape, bulk up rather than slim down. EDIT - just realised I'm an idiot and this is what you meant in the first place. The following advice works regardless. 30 bucks 28 bucks for that bar. Pick a doorway, and do whatever - pull ups, chin ups - to exhaustion (until you can't do any more) every time you go through it.

  3. Smile + shoulders back + good posture. You'll They'll see the difference.
u/bcphotog · 8 pointsr/ar15

Just a simple setup would be, in no particular order:


  • Vise
  • AR Tool - I have a powder coated green AR tool, forgot who makes it.
  • Screwdrivers
  • Good Lighting - Seriously, a good light source goes a long ways in the ease of building things. I have a drafting lamp very similar to this type.
  • AR Mat - Useful for putting stuff together (and cleaning of course) your AR on your desk/dinner table, so your wife or SO won't murder you. I have this cleaning mat.
  • Roll Pin Punches - I used a set of regular punches from Lowe's for a while, i finally got around to getting a set of actual roll pin punches on Amazon recently.
  • Small Hammer - I got this small 8-ounce hammer on Amazon. It's perfect for use with the roll pin punches.
  • Mallet - Useful for hitting things without marring up the finish.
  • Vise Block - I use a Magpul Bev block for work on my lower or upper. Waiting for the next Geissele sale so i can snag a Geissele Super Reaction Rod to replace the Bev block on upper work.
  • Allen Wrenches - I have this set of 3 hex-torx allen wrenches. Super handy for rails and other mount screws. Might also want a long handle set if you use a hex screw for your pistol grip like i do.
  • Torque Wrench - I have this Tekton torque wrench for barrels nuts, castle nuts (if you do torque yours, i don't usually), and whatever else needs to be torqued.
  • Torque Screwdriver Kit - I have this Wheeler Torque Wrench/Screwdriver set, super handy for screws that require a certain torque spec.


    That's what i can think of off the top of my head, you probably won't need all of that if you only plan on building a lower first. It'll be useful down the line to get most of those tools, but i'd go with first:

  • AR tool
  • Bev Block/Vise Blocks/Reaction Rod
  • Roll Pin Punches
  • Vise

    If you have Amazon Prime, there's quite a bit of stuff you can get on there, it's where i got most of my tools.

u/skooba83 · 8 pointsr/pelotoncycle

You didn't miss out on all that much to be honest. The shoes are a nice bonus, the rest of the stuff is cheaper/better elsewhere. Snag a referral code from someone and that takes the shoes down to effectively $25.

Buy this mat for $22

Get a better heart rate monitor (the included chest strap one has connection issues if you aren't sweaty)
I bought this one, though I bought it off Google Express and used a 20% coupon.

u/IAMA_RELIABLE_SOURCE · 8 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Welcome to Bodyweight. First off, read the FAQ so you understand everything. I recommend this routine (assuming that you are not too weak): http://i.imgur.com/o3bRo.png. The routine is good for beginners. Do it every other day, and you should be getting back in shape. Just remember to eat well and get enough rest. As for your dumbbell, you CAN switch out certain exercises, but I do not recommend isolation work until you get back in shape (in other words, don't do it yet).

You would really want to get a pair of gymnastic rings too. They're not too expensive and they're awesome.

Here's a good pair for $30.

And a better pair for $55

Enjoy your stay and read the faq!

u/dbe · 8 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Amazon. They seem well made.

u/HooterPunch · 8 pointsr/homegym

1a) These are just cheap pads from Amazon

1b) I can do barbell work on them (rows, deadlifts, hip thrusts, etc.) and burpees but for burpees I have found shoes will wear the texture on them out. I do find them spongy for burpees but I figured it was adding resistance in a small way. Overall I do not recommend these puzzle tiles for a home gym largely because for the same price that I paid for the area I covered I could have done stall mats had I known about them before buying these. Stall mats and plywood to build a platform are my next purchase for the gym and I will use lag bolts to anchor the rack to the platform which leads to your next question.

2) Your eagle eyes are correct, no bolts here currently. I'm 220lbs and I can do dips, pull-ups, hanging ab work, etc without any wobble at all on this rack. Part of that is because I have almost 500lbs of weight stored on the sides and that this EliteFTS rack is really heavy itself since it is made of 3x3 11 gauge steel. I got away with dips and pullups on my 2x2 Valor rack without bolting it to the floor either but that rack did get pretty wobbly. But for safety purposes I will be using bolts to anchor this to the platform I'll be building later this month. Many years down the road when it's time to move I'll probably just patch over the holes I make for anchoring this down anyways.

I use a GunVault SV500 SpeedVault Handgun Safe. I have it bolted onto the side of my bed, using the screws that it came with; it works great! Definitely check it out. I got the one that accepts a key or pin code. They also had a fingerprint version but I was nervous about relying on an accurate fingerprint scan. It opens very quickly and I practice opening it every night before going to bed which also lets me check the battery.

u/SunTzuWarmaster · 7 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I got these guys. I would urge you NOT to cheap out on this product, as its failure could be life-threatening. Fundamentally, BWF is really, really cheap. Total investment for me is ~$50 ($30 rings, $20 building-my-own paralettes). Considering that $50 will last you more than a year, it is, at most, 10% of the cost of a year of crossfit membership.

Some words on at-home training:

  • If you have rings mounted comfortable enough to swing your legs a little, you don't need a pullup bar, see my last video for an example of placements.
  • Get a band or two for stretching. Rings are more flexibility-demanding than is typical. I assume that you have a broom.
  • Get some free weights. I have have 2 30#, 2 15#, and a 45# kettlebell. This covers about all your basic lifts.
  • Do high-rep bicep curls. This will even you out when you start having elbow problems from pulling exercises.
  • Drill false grip!
  • Clear a space. The most important part of your home gym is the space to actually work out. Your space should be large enough to do a full yoga session in, at a minimum. Ideally it should be big enough to fall over from a handstand. Outside areas are bonus points ;).
u/faustin_mn · 7 pointsr/Stronglifts5x5

r/homegym will give you some ideas. This set is pretty cheap and will get you thru the first few months of StrongLifts. I used it and didn’t bother spending on a quality bar until after 7 months when my deadlift went over 350 and started bending my starter bar pretty badly. You’ll also need a squat rack or st the very least a half rack. I got mine from Amazon. That’s all you’d need for the main lifts and should serve you well for 6-12 months.

u/ARKnife · 7 pointsr/knives

For those requirements and as a first knife I'd recommend getting the Ontario RAT II, as it is inexpensive, has good quality, great for campwork is overall a great entry-level knife (my first knife was the RAT 1, the larger version).

If you would like to get a knife designed especially for UK legal carry - check out the UKPK by Spyderco.

u/Beer_Is_So_Awesome · 7 pointsr/knifeclub

I'm really sorry. I worry that something like this will happen whenever I approach a new music venue.

It's probably a bit heavier than your M16, but the Ontario Rat-1 is a really solid, affordable pocket knife for under $30.

It has AUS-8 steel, a broad, deep full-flat-ground blade, bronze phosphor washers in the pivot and a very solid liner-lock.

EDIT: I just remembered that Ontario recently released the Rat-2, which is both smaller and lighter than the Rat-1, and very similar in size to the CRKT M16.

Ontario Rat-2, $27.

u/_hester_ · 7 pointsr/ar15

At first, I didn't think I would get more than two rifles, so I opted for the Plano foam-padded case. I bought two so I could lock up both rifles (from the kiddos, not thieves), and not take up a ton of room in my house. They're very good cases, and I would recommend them for traveling (either road trips or flying). If you get one of these, don't trust the built in locks, and buy some decent (long bolt) padlocks. Negative: They're not great for taking to the range. They're bulky, and awkward if you need to set them out of the way while you're shooting.

Of course, I bought a third rifle on an impulse, and it came with something like this for free. I actually ended up using this more than the hard cases for range trips since it's much more compact/maneuverable, and just carries the essentials (a few magazines and a good-sized pouch for tactical Skittles). For a one-rifle person, this is probably the best value, and more practical for most people's needs.

That said, few of us actually stay one-rifle gun owners for long. I just punted and bought a $100 metal gun cabinet from Walmart to control access. The nice Plano cases are now just used for traveling rather than storage.

My favorite, though, is a double carbine bag. Even if you only have one rifle (now), it's a great bag with plenty of extra storage. It will fit two sets of eye and ear protection and a lot of pre-loaded magazines along with two rifles. I didn't think I'd ever use the backpack straps until a few weeks ago when we decided to find a place to shoot in the National Forest that required a little hiking off the road. The bag really saved the day, and made the whole experience a lot more comfortable while packing about 40 pounds of rifles + ammo.

Just my $0.02.

u/apgomez85 · 7 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

u/thepensivepoet · 6 pointsr/Guitar

There are some things you can do like practicing with a pick on some sort of edged surface that sort of approximates the feeling of strumming/picking strings just to practice your grip.

Using grip strengthening tools while your hands are free can be helpful as well. And I mean the normal grip exercise tools like this and NOT those janky little 'Gripmaster' things with the individual finger springs you'll sometimes see marketed to guitarists or hanging out at the GuitarCenter checkout counter. IMO they do a terrible job of emulating the feeling of pressing down on strings and are awkward and sometimes even painful with the strange angle you'll be holding it to attempt and build fretting finger strength.

Spend time doing paper music practice - transpose music/tabs, draw out the fretboard and fill in the correct notes, anything that might serve you as a learning tool AWAY from the guitar.

There are small travel size guitars or 'silent' guitars on the market you may be able to fit in your backpack as well as partial-guitars meant for practice but, honestly, I'd just bring your damn guitar with you. Nothing is going to beat having your hands on the actual instrument and all the tools/training aids I've seen just aren't quite the same enough that I'd want to spend money or time on them.

Aside from that just relax. Having time away from your instrument is good for rest and focus as well.

u/RugerRedhawk · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

We love our popup, it's a 2001 Flagstaff that is only a couple years old to us, but was well cared for by the previous owners. I live up north so keeping food out of it so mice aren't lured in in the winter is a big priority up here.

Really there isn't much to keeping them nice. If you are able to keep it stored out of the weather when you're not camping with it, that will really help it hold up longer. If you ever have to pack up while the canvas is damp or wet be sure to pop it back up to dry fully when you get home. I would also use something like 303 protectant to cover the solid vinyl portions of the tent if you have that material. https://www.amazon.com/303-30306-Protectant-Plastic-Fiberglass/dp/B000XBCURW

We pretty much never eat in ours and never cook in ours. It's so much easier to cook and eat outside and it keeps food from getting on cushions and prevents crumbs from luring in mice like I stated above.

It sounds like you plan on camping mostly with power based on your AC requirement, if you will be at more primitive sites every be sure you have a good battery. If you were serious about getting the most out of your battery you'd want to switch to LED lights and install dual 6v batteries.

If you do decide to go after it it, there are two versions - the 2nd release with "sound" is the one you want. The first release is less detailed and had defective rubber. Even if you do have/get the newer release I highly recommend a yearly treatment of "303 aerospace protectant" on all the rubber parts of this, particularly the head/dome.

You don't need a permit or background check to buy this either: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00NZ8O1AY/ref=redir_mdp_mobile/186-1579615-2750736

But it is also a lethal weapon, not a toy. Same with this: http://www.amazon.com/KA-BAR-Marine-Corps-Fighting-Straight/dp/B001H53Q6M

So I don't think that a background check is what makes the difference between a toy and a weapon.

It is true that kids typically don't get shot for holding a baseball bat or ball, but they can get shot for making a sudden movement which the officer interprets as agression, even if they are unarmed. Brightly colored guns are no replacement for knowing how to act properly around police to avoid being seen as an imminent threat.

u/GenericName72 · 6 pointsr/Denver

Pepper spray is totally legal in Colorado if you're using it in self-defense. It's legal to carry and you don't need to warn people around you that you are in possession of it-- in other words, you can conceal carry it legally. I believe it's also legal to brandish it. I carry this with me at all times. Important to use pepper gel and not pepper spray, as it's more wind-resistant and less likely to blow back into your face.

u/Dumpy_Creatures · 6 pointsr/Survival

Bear spray is considered a pesticide by the epa and as such has standards for humane treatment. It is not meant to incpapacitate as pepper spray is. It isn’t as strong as I thought it was though. (In retrospect this makes sense due to a Bears much greater sense of smell than a person) Pepper sprays have more oil making them thicker and harder to remove. Bear sprays are designed to create a cloud for maximum coverage making where as pepper spray is a stream for less splash damage and blow back.

u/BoredDellTechnician · 6 pointsr/CCW

I had to Google this thing to see what the heck you're talking about.


I wouldn't recommend buying a taser that shoots prongs out. If those prongs fail to make proper contact with your target, your taser is now useless. It looks like this model has a stun gun built in as a backup, but at that point you might as well go with a cheap stun gun.

In terms of price and effectiveness, I would rather just purchase several pepper gel canisters and leave them in places such as your back pack, car door pockets, etc.


Whatever you decide to carry on campus, I would argument it with a high-power tactical flashlight. Simply walking around with a lit flashlight at night should be enough to give someone pause if they attempt to approach you while you're alone. A tactical flashlight will be able to switch to enough lumen output that you can blind someone with it well your retreat.

If you want to step up in terms of distance, this is the one you want.

If you have the height allowance, I’d recommend a power rack with the dip bar add-ons to give you the flexibility to add barbell work in the future.

u/ccfixx · 6 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Personally, I always feel like the dip bars on power towers are too wide. I've tried a few of them out in Dick's Sporting Goods and it doesn't feel like a good position to sustain for multiple dips. So, that might be something to consider if you purchase one of these. I just did a quick search for more detailed dimensions of that particular model but I didn't have any luck. Maybe, get a power tower with less "features" like this Cap Barbell Power Rack from Amazon and then you can get some rings and throw them over the bar? The price fluctuates quite a bit; at the end of April it was down to $50.59 and occasionally gets down into the $65 price range.

u/ExtraPlayToy · 5 pointsr/Hotwife

I actually have a lot of experience with this sort of issue from a previous relationship. The TL;DR is i spent a TON of time researching the female orgasm, and G Spot stimulation.

*Disclaimer: I gained a ton of new information and new techniques, but guess what - still no orgasm. Kinda screwed me up cause I kept trying to place blame (on me, then her, then me again...etc) but really i should have continued to keep an open mind and communicate more with her. I was immature. I mention this because you shouldn't make it a "goal" that you or her get pissed off that you don't reach. Every girl is unique in the way that she prefers to be pleased. You have to learn to read body language and react properly to her subtle hints. It's more like obtaining a degree, takes a long time and a lot of hard work, but in the end it pays off.

You should absolutely research g spot stimulation. Every girl i've been with afterward has been completely amazed, and some squirted for the first time from just my fingers. If you really wanna make a girl cum, the majority of women are going to be brought to orgasm with your fingers, not your cock. This does take time and excersize, I would literately work out with my fingers. There's a ton of information and how-to videos on the web about this, i suggest you watch and readas many as you can and combine all the information. And remember that your girl is unique, and you have to adapt techniques to her and her body.

Also, you're idea about adding another guy is a separate thing. If you both want to live out that fantasy, that's awesome, but it shouldn't be used as a "i can't do it, let him do it!" What happens when he doesn't make her cum either? Research, exercise, and communication dude. Good luck, and have FUN!

I use Kroil because I bought 2 cans when they were on sale...seems to work really well, no complaints. But same idea.

Also, I find having some silicone spray lubricant is handy to keep around. Whenever something is frictiony, I give it a spray. There might be something better than it, but it's worked well for me.

3rdly, I like to have a good plastic cleaner/conditioner. Keeps plastics looking pretty inside and out: http://www.amazon.com/303-Products-30350-Aerospace-Protectant/dp/B000XBCURW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398726066&sr=8-1&keywords=plastic+conditioner

Lastly, I use Folex for all my carpet/upholstery cleaning needs. It is amazing...Price has been going up recently though:(. I hate that I'm only 28 and I've watched the price of gas/milk/eggs/paint/engine oil/etc more than quadruple in my short life...I don't know how I'm going to handle being 50-60-70...gonna complain so much.

Have you done the previous maintenance intervals? i.e. fluid flushes (transmission, coolant, brake fluid, spark plugs)? Recommend using DOT 5.1 brake fluid, and long life coolant/trans fluid.

Not sure on the civic, but if it uses a timing chain (which it probably does) it's probably due for an adjustment. If it uses a belt you need to change that ASAP. Honda lists their belt replacement at 7 years or 110k miles, whichever comes first.

Might be a good time to replace the battery before it leaves you stranded.

u/dweezil22 · 5 pointsr/homegym

At that weight basically anything you get will be ok, that said, safeties are still nice to have, so consider the value of a full rack or a half rack instead of just a squat stand. As always, Craigslist or your local alternative can be a lot better deals (and your realism about weights may mean that some of the less popular cheaper stuff will be great for you while everyone else is chasing expensive Rogue gear).

If you do want to go new, Slickdeals just pointed me towards this $250 prime shipping rack on Amazon that looks like one of the cheapest options at the moment: https://www.amazon.com/Fitness-Reality-810XLT-800lbs-Capacity/dp/B01N4I8FOY/ CamelCamelCamel is amazingly reporting it sold for < $150 a few times this year (though I dunno if that included shipping)

u/kmolch · 5 pointsr/homegym

Couldn't agree more regarding the purchase of a rack that includes plate storage. Its more space efficient and leaves more open floor space. I have a fitness reality rack (https://www.amazon.com/FITNESS-REALITY-810XLT-800lbs-Capacity/dp/B01N4I8FOY/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1520431497&sr=1-1&keywords=fitness+reality+810xlt+super+max+power+cage) with T-2 plate holders, but if I were to buy again I'd think hard about getting a titan T-3 (T-3 over a T-2 because there seems to be more accessory options). However, from personal experience, I'd have to disagree regarding getting a flat bench and a "good" bar.
Regarding the bench, do you plan on doing incline bench/flys/curls/ rows/etc? The general sentiment of this community is buy once/buy forever. If that's the case, buy a good incline bench and call it a day. Otherwise, you buy the flat bench, then buy an adjustable bench down the road, and you're trying to store both of them in your 10x10 room. I got the el cheapo fitness reality (https://www.amazon.com/Fitness-Reality-Super-Adjustable-Weight/dp/B01CR4XFIK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1520431386&sr=8-1&keywords=fitness+reality) one for ~$80. It does the job, but isn't super heavy/wide. While it doesn't feel rock solid, I've had people throw up 250#s on it no problem, so for many of us it should do the job. Looking back, I would look into Titan's adjustable bench, as well as the Ethos one from Dicks. The Ethos is a little steep at $250, but is super study and heavy duty feeling.
As far as getting a "good bar" goes, why rush it? What are your numbers currently? I got the Dick's Fitness Gear 300 # set (https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/fitness-gear-300-lbolympic-weight-set-16fgeu300lbstwth7brb/16fgeu300lbstwth7brb) for ~$180. It can be had for cheaper if you sign up for their promotion emails and use a $10 or $20 off coupon. I've pulled 300#s and squatted 300#s and the bar hasn't bent yet. Yes, the knurling could be better, and it won't last a lifetime, but until my lifts are consistently over 300#s or the bar does start to bend, buying a "good' bar can wait. It does the job and I could think of several things I'd rather buy first for my home gym. Don't get me wrong, I can't wait until I'm forced to buy a new bar and can get something badass, but if you're on a budget and the 300lb weight set bar works for what you need, I wouldn't rush into getting a better bar.

Generally you don't weigh yourself with pull-ups, you just do them. Once you start being able to do excessive amounts of pull-ups (which won't happen for a while if you're a novice), you can start adding weight to yourself to make it more challenging. As others have said, you can achieve this through special belts (like this) that you can put standard plates on or by holding dumbbells between your legs or however else you want.

Once you start doing that, you can theoretically add together your body weight + added weight, but most people only talk about added weight since pullups are traditionally a body weight exercise.

Cocoon Grid-It organizer. It's rather cheap and especially useful if you use different bags like a messenger bag for school and a backpack for a bit longer travels. You can easily attach stuff you need once in a while to the grid and just throw it to another bag.

Currently my grid-it contains a USB-stick, couple cables, one of those Victorinox card multitools, a powerbank and a pen. When I'm traveling overnight I add a toothbrush and a small tube of toothpaste. 5/5 would buy again.

Funny your name is Saber, because Sabre is definitely the one I rely on.

The best is the Sabre Red Police-Grade Pepper Gel. It comes out in a wide spray of gel like substance, which is awesome because the first thing people do when they get hit in the face is to try to smear it off their face with both hands. But, the more you smear the gel, the worse it gets. It completely incapacitates them for better than typical spray.

REPORT THIS GUY! As a 19 year old man I can say "Abdul" is a damn creeper, and NOTHING he did could be considered normal or good in the slightest.

Next time someone makes you feel uncomfortable like that, ask them to leave IMMEDIATELY. The safety of you and your wife is not worth a few bucks, people over paper ya know.

Also as other people have said you might want to invest in better security. It's a trust but verify sorta situation, you'd like to think all of your guest are going to be super cool French, hitchhiker, philanthropists, but lets face it, some are going to be like Abdul. You need to prepare yourself for them.

1). Don't ever give them keys, do not give any random asshat with an AirBnB account permanent access to you home. Use something like the reset able combination locks others have suggested.

Also reinforce the hinges and strike plate, it's the most common way exterior doors fail against a home invader. A window reinforcement film is also super useful, it helps prevent windows from shattering when hit with bricks and the like.

2). Get a security system, a fucking loud one. Motion controlled flood lights, sirens, all that shit; messed up fuckers don't like having the whole neighborhoods attention focused on them. Something like this, doesn't require a contract and seems pretty good (Am not endorsing, just found it via Google).

3). If you like dogs, get one. You'll have an amazing furry friend and certain breeds can be intimidating, yet lovable, security puppers

4). Learn how to say no, it's a valuable skill that can be a literal life saver. Maybe go on a ride along with your local PD, see how they deal with belligerent drunks and the like. or you could ask the advice of someone you know is good at resolving this sort of stuff. These aren't the only ideas of course, find what works best for you.

5). A shotgun can be your best friend if perverts decide to take things to the next level. Invest in something like this, a security length barrel, and some self defense ammo (or anything that says "20 gauge, Buckshot, Low recoil, Home Defense," etc. on it).

Also learn how to use it and store it safely, Google around to find local ranges that host intro to shooting/intro to shotgun type classes. You don't have to be Rambo, but getting the basics down pat can turn you into a competent shot-gunner.

Plus trap, skeet, sporting clays, etc. are super fun!

(Tasers, stun guns, collapsible baton and pepper spray are also good alternatives if you don't want to use lethal force)

Hopefully this give you some idea of how to protect you and yours, stay safe!

It's called a gun safe. It's always the people that don't own guns safely and lawfully that try to argue for more gun control. You shouldn't have an unsecured weapon sitting around at any time in a school or workplace.

You can get quick release safes and keep your pistol loaded in them. You press a few large lighted buttons OR bio recognition from your fingers and the safe opens up. The bio-release stuff isn't there yet though... if the batteries run low many will open for anyone.

They're a little expensive, but then, guns are as well; https://www.amazon.com/GunVault-SV500-SpeedVault-Handgun-Safe/dp/B006OGNLKA/ref=sr_1_1/142-9316893-3812044?ie=UTF8&qid=1518746356&sr=8-1&keywords=speed+vault

Maybe there's something similar for shotguns?

Problem is, with dedication and plenty of time kids can break into them. Key is slower, but might be safer with kids.

$400? for $200 you can get a full sized squat rack on Amazon:

I used to have one of those benches in the CL ad and on the highest setting I'd still have to do a 1/2" squat to get started with squats, plus there's no safety bars to catch if you fail and that goes for bench press too on the lack of safety.

Another hundred bucks and you've got a good quality bench:

Spend the rest on weights (admittedly you'll be just above the $400 price point but you won't be needing to spend more money on the same equipment a few years down the road) and whey and you'll be good to go.

I feel you on keeping tension in a particular place (though for me it's my lower back). Here are my tips:

  • Get a foam roller like this. Feels great on lots of body parts, and I particularly love it on my upper back near my shoulders.

  • Try going to a yoga studio just for a basic class. Get there a little early and before the class, ask the instructor if she could include any shoulder stretches. Most are very happy to accommodate requests, or will show you some right then and there.

  • Could it be related to your posture? Try adjusting the height of your chair or working desk, maybe. Or try a standing desk.

  • My absolute favorite stretch for shoulders is the following:

  1. Stand upright with your arms out in a T.
  2. Cross your arms over one another, trying to get as close to that T shape as you can again.
  3. Lie down on your stomach on a firm surface, keeping your arms in this position. Rest your opposite cheek from the shoulder that is closer to the ground (so if your left shoulder is nearer the ground, your right cheek will be resting on your right arm). You should feel the stretch in the shoulder/arm closest to the ground.

    Let me know if that's unclear...I can try to draw a (terrible) diagram!
u/tomkatt · 4 pointsr/Fitness

You can get one for pretty cheap really, and they're worth every penny. I stalled out for a while, was tight all over, and regularly sore. After getting a foam roller and using it on a regular basis, I'm not as tight, and I'm making progression again on my lifts.

I ordered this one on amazon, I can't see how $20 is too expensive for something so important, especially compared to the cost of other fitness equipment.

u/n88n · 4 pointsr/knots

i love rigging random hanging items from my basement ceiling. I am a rock climber and train ninja warrior obstacles so I like to hang all types of stuff.

My favorite way is to create loops with 1" tubular webbing (climbing stuff not hobby). You can buy rolls of one inch webbing for pretty cheap.


Then cut to size and use a water knot to make a loop out of the webbing. I loop it around the rafter on my ceiling and I clip a beaner or any thing else to the webbing and it supports a ton of weight. You can easy move it if you want. Or i just have slowly made a ton of loops around the basement so it is easy to create different courses or routes.

With your pullup bar you can drill holes in the end of the bar and bolt on eye loops. Then create two loops of webbing over the rafters in the garage and hook up the bar.

In my opinion a swinging pull up bar is not fun and personally i would want it fixed with no swing on it. gymnastics rings are a better option for pullups with movement.

These Nayoya ones are great. They come with the rings and easily adjustable webbing. pretty cheap and if you can work pull ups, muscle ups, dips and all kinds of bodyweight exercises. rings are the shit.

I know you say you don't have a lot of room and this assumes you don't need to move equipment out of way when not in use but the squat towers with a bench under them would likely be exact same footprint as a power cage like this:

And a cage will offer more safety and flexibility with lifts.

Here are my personal essentials.

  • Spyderco Delica 4: $60 VG-10 steel, comes in tons of colors
  • Spyderco Endura 4: Larger version of Delica
  • Morakniv Companion: $12-$20 A really awesome fixed blade, outperforms knives triple it's price.
  • Victorinox Tinker: $20-25 classic swiss army knife, really great quality in general. Lots of tools but not too many so it's easily pocket carried.
  • Victorinox Cadet: Smaller Swiss Army Knife, aluminum handles. Lots of colors.
  • Kershaw Cryo, or Cryo 2: $20-40 steel frame lock, Hinderer design, good price, tons of colors. The Cryo 2 is the same as the Cryo just larger.
  • Ontaro Rat 1 or 2: $25-30 Classically shaped folders with a very rugged build for a liner lock. The 2 is a smaller version of the 1.

    Also, you're going to want a sharpening system that works for you in the long run. I personally use the Spyderco Sharpmaker But there are tons of good sharpening options out there.

    P.S: You're going to get a lot of people hating on your Gerbers most likely, that's because they're honestly not worth it in the long run. They use very low quality steel for the price and they don't have the best quality control. I'm not saying your Gerbers are trash or anything. But they definitely won't last very long. Just about all of the knives I listed will last you a lifetime if you treat them right, and oil/sharpen them correctly.
u/freeshavocadew · 4 pointsr/knives

Well, first, congratulations on becoming a LEO. I am not one myself, but I have had a few convos with them and I'm going to start by giving you a couple of things to consider. The first one is, this knife will be a tool, right? A tool is used for all sorts of tasks, some it wasn't intended for like prying, scraping, or breaching/otherwise opening something that wouldn't the best tool for the job. One LEO I spoke with mentioned having to use his knife to do some limited demolition to a couple of walls in a trailer to find drugs. Stabbing through sheet rock, hitting studs, and nails and shit like that. I might suggest having a small pry bar as, you know, your tool that rides with at least, maybe find a belt pouch or way to carry it on your person. Better to have and not need than need and not have on this. Another thing, you might consider starting off with a more affordable knife, a beater. There are several reasons - tools you have on the job can be damaged or lost, and with a cheap beater you won't cry when that happens, you may need to hand it over as evidence in an investigation (used in self defense, etc.) and handing over your favorite knife can be painful even if you do eventually have it returned to you, you will already know about how LEOs and lawyers are not your best friends and having a big ol' scary knife may raise an eyebrow or two even in your position, and FINALLY there's the fact that you may be required to loan your knife out or use it in such a way that would ruin it. Any time you loan a tool out, it's great to expect to be returned in the same condition, but it's not always the case. Additionally, you may find you need it for an emergency, like in a vehicle fire or such a thing, mostly I'm imagining fire-related emergencies. A lot of knives are made with plastic scales which will melt all to shit but is technically still able to be used. This is unlikely, I know, but you're more likely to be there than me, so it is what it is.

After all that, I do have some recommendations!

Kershaw Clash - currently listed at ~$22, it's a fair knife for the money. It's spring assisted opening, a little larger both in size as well as handling (bad for finer cutting manipulation) but would be a great knife to get started with and treat as a beater. Would also serve as entry level EDC and would get you a lot of quick handling experience for the type of knife you'd actually want to get!

Kershaw Blur is a really well known knife by the knife community, combining quite a few really nice points at once. Currently listed at ~$58 (this model), this is also a great knife for someone looking for an all arounder. The blade steel is a little better than the Clash and several other offers from the cheaper side of knives, the scales are really comfortable for medium to large hands, and it doesn't break the bank. In my personal opinion it's probably one of if not the best knife for the money.

Kizer Vanguard is a different blade shape than the previous two, a much more classic style with a drop point. Currently this is on sale for ~$44 and this knife has a variety of handle colors available, which I think is neat. Based on my EDC use, it seems to be quite nice!

CRKT M21-12G has a few variations available with a similar size offered there as well as plain edge versus serrations. Personally I find serrations difficult to sharpen so I avoid them on my knives, but your mileage may vary. This knife is currently ~$46 and is worth it. This is a thicc chunk of steel with a thiccer handle even though the steel liners are milled out. Having taken it apart and put it back together a few times, I find this knife very easy to clean and service.

Ontario Knife Company Rat-1 is no frills and a solid knife. This is currently selling for ~$22 and is worth every penny. There's a few different models with the price varying quite a bit but overall it's below $40. This knife is a large chunk of metal with the scales and thick plastic liners too. However, there are etsy shops that make more custom liners that might be less chunky. Will likely cost more than you paid for the knife, but eh, whatever. This will be harder to lose, I think, since it's so large.

I hope one or more of these suggestions is helpful!

u/king_human · 4 pointsr/knifeclub

The Tinker is a great knife. If you were so inclined, you could get a Tinker and an Ontario RAT 2 and strill be under your $50.00 budget. The RAT series is an excellent choice (I have a RAT 1 and have given many away as gifts). I didn't mention it earlier, as you had already done some narrowing on your suggested knives. Any way you go with your eventual purchase, I think you'll be satisfied, as you've picked out some very good EDC knives to choose from.

u/Tadashi047 · 4 pointsr/knives

The CRKT Drifter [Stainless Steel Handle] [G10 Handle] is a good choice, like the poster above suggests. The Ontario RAT-II and Kershaw Clash are other great options.

u/zxj4k3xz · 4 pointsr/airsoft

Waht type of budget are you looking at?

There isn't much that goes into cleaning airsoft guns. A cleaning rod, some microfiber cloths, and a bit of rubbing alcohol is all it really takes for an AEG. For GBBs (I assume his G19 will be GBB) he might need a valve key to disassmeble the mags.

Maybe a gun rack or gun case

Patches are always a good gift

Comfy socks, like Darn Tough, are awesome.

If he uses midcap mags (No winding wheel on the bottom) he might like an Odin Sidewinder. It's an amazing speedloader. They've announced an updated version but I don't know when it's coming out. If he already has a Sidewinder there's a sound dampening thingy for it.

Edit: On a $250 budget you can get him some nice stuff:

Vortex Crossfire II 1-4x24 scope is an incredible scope. I know I'd be ecstatic to get one if I didn't already have one.

Salomon boots are awesome boots. Peoples feet can vary a lot so boots might not be a great gift but Amazon does have a good return policy

A Dye i5
or i4 are great masks. Again, preferences may vary. He might prefer goggles and separate lower face protection.

This might sound stupid and isn't really airsoft related, but I got a label maker and it's been awesome.

u/a5tr0cr3ep · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals
u/Sababa_Gump · 3 pointsr/Trichsters

You and I have had virtually identical experiences. Granting that I still struggle with getting my trich under control, here's the humble advice I can offer:

  1. Identify times/situations when you tend to pull more frequently and then if possible, create uses for your hand(s) that prevent them from automatically migrating to your face. For me, driving is a big auto-pull time. With one hand on the wheel and my mind wandering, my left hand will find its way to may beard and start wreaking havoc. What I did to combat this is is buy a hand strengthener like this one which I keep in my car. When I recognize that I'm pulling, I'll grab this thing instead. I also keep silly putty in my car for the same reason.

  2. Medication/therapy can and does help. Though I personally haven't yet had much luck in this department, trich is an anxiety-based behavior for which treating the underlying causative factors helps significantly. In fact, we've all tried willing ourselves to just stop and we've all seen just how effective that can be. Getting to the root (so to the speak) is the sustainable way to rectify this destructive behavior.
    On that note, try to take note of when you tend to pull more and when you tend to pull less. That is to say, try to pay attention to what else is going on in your life when your trich gets worse. Are there possibly certain triggers that are influencing the rate of your pulling? Become more mindful of how you're doing generally and how that relates to your pulling. Creating these links are important in coming to understand the behavior and ultimately stopping it.

  3. Lastly, eye-shadow. Yes that's right. Go to a beauty supply store or Walmart or whatever and find a color that closely matches your beard color. I have a dark auburn/copper colored beard and ended up with a color called "latte". It's not an exact match but its close enough to where it fills in the hole(s) and blends everything together fairly seamlessly. Oh, also pick up an applicator. You can either get a small paint brush type thing or the eyeliner applicator itself (which is what I use and is pretty effective).

    That's all I've got. Best of luck man, I wish you many full bearded years ahead!

This is what I used. I forget what the exercises are called but there's one or two specifically for golfers elbow. Buy this, Google the exercises and play pain free. I used to have pretty bad tendinitis, couldn't throw a baseball more once or twice, by the end of the round my elbow would be burning and I could barely get through a workout. Fast forward to after I found this thing and I'm good for a round and a range session in the same day pain free and 99% pain free workouts also. Can't recommend it enough.

u/homegymstuff · 3 pointsr/homegym

I have the Titan multigrip and like it most for close grip bench. I don't use it a ton but I like having it for something different and so that I can use it whenever I have a wrist problem. It arrives with a ton of metal shavings inside the bar though, and they will fall out of the Titan logo that's cut into the middle of the bar. It'll go over your face when benching, so you'll want to spend time emptying it before use, or covering the logo. It's an annoyance but the bar itself is good, and I think the inexpensive option is the way to go with a bar that will only be used here and there.

I also had golfer's elbow for a while so I bought a TheraBand FlexBar. I can't say for sure that I got better because of it, but I can definitely say that I got better after using it. I can also say that it hasn't come back. Whenever I start to feel that tightness again I do the golfer's elbow exercise and the tightness has always improved. Before the FlexBar I worked out using a golfer's elbow strap that sits below the elbow and allowed me to work out with less pain.

u/StPierreB · 3 pointsr/loseit

Good question. For one, I stopped doing the lifts that were hurting it - mainly bicep and upper back work. I had to rest for a few months just to do the rehab exercises without pain. Then I bought one of the TheraBand Flex Bars and Grip Strengtheners. Both exercises strengthen your forearms and within a couple of months of those exercises I was pain free and lifting again.

u/JerkoMcGee · 3 pointsr/golf

Buy a Flexbar and do this exercise three times a day or so. It helped me out after only a few days.

Edit: deleted extra letter.

u/lookalive07 · 3 pointsr/P90X

If you get those, you limit yourself to a certain weight and you also don't, since you can adjust them, but it takes time.

If you're serious about it, you may want to consider investing in something like these:


Because you can change them super quickly in between workouts. It'd probably be really helpful during incinerator, where you're moving from curls to triceps back to back.

Or just do a mix of bands and dumbells. Nothing wrong with that.

u/5picy · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is over 15, so it's not giftable in this contest, but my weirdest item is this fighting knife. I just want it because I feel like a knife is a useful thing to have. Not as a weapon, just as a tool. I like to camp. Also I'm afraid of bears. And zombies. (You never do know.)

My fave April Fool's prank I played was on my dad. First I stuck a funnel in the front of my jeans and a quarter on my head, and told my dad, "I bet I can get this quarter down the funnel." Then I tilted my head forward and it went into the funnel and down my pants. I did this a couple of times then told him, "Bet you can't do it!"

So he puts the funnel in his pants and the quarter on his head. ...And then I pour a glass of ice water down the funnel and into his pants. XDD

He was SO FREAKING MAD. oh my god. Hahahaha. He lost it. My mom and I were dying laughing and he was furious with both of us. He couldn't admit it'd been funny for four or five years. XDD

An embarrassing fact about me is that I once didn't have a pad with me in high school when my period started, so I used a folded paper towel. Later on I was walking down the hall and the bloody towel fell out of my underwear (I was wearing a skirt) and onto the floor in front of everyone at class time change. Egads!

About 500lbs of random plates I got cheap. Most of it was bought used but in good condition. Took me a while because I was really patient so I’d find what I wanted.

I’m pretty happy with all of it. I was most concerned with saving space and getting stuff that had high enough weight capacities. I’m not lifting really heavy weights, so it’s all good for me but might not work for everyone.

They're of really good quality, although you might want to use a stronger carabiner when you're going very heavy. In general, dip belts are not suitable as weightlifting belts because they do not provide support for your back when doing deadlifts, squats, etc.

u/jamin101wolf · 3 pointsr/EDC

A RAT, a Tenacious, an Opinel, or a Cryo are the usual choices. What's wrong with 8cr13mov steel? It's not the best but for sub $30, it'll get the job done.

u/macbooklover91 · 3 pointsr/EDC

Well heres a list of some from amazon.

u/ItsFuckingPaco · 3 pointsr/Eve

Well it depends how creative you want to be.

When I lived with my parents (still do) they have these rafters outside which are perfect for doing pull-ups and pushups on. I have adjustable straps to change the height (which should come with most).

When I used to lifeguard I would just hang them on a nearby tree during our mandatory PT break.

When I was in college I would just no shame hang them at the gym in between the pully tower with rows / tricep extensions at the end.

Right now My garage door has an extra half foot on the outside of it and I hang it on my Pull-Up bar on the metal bar that crossed the U kinda further away from the door sill so you don’t bump into the doorsill. And right now it’s perfect for me, my knees miss the floor by a few inches and I can do L sit pull ups fine. As in with enough slack to let the rings rotate without pressure from the rope.

If you’re looking to do pushups with it you should easily be able to hang it on your pullup bar. I’d suggest the chin up section of it so you don’t bump into the door and so the straps don’t move sideways, with your feet elevated on like a chair and the straps at the same height or below for that upper chest activation.

You should have enough room for dips with bent knees with that setup which is a nice step up from push ups.

u/saraerial · 3 pointsr/Aerials

Even the kind you don't have to screw in can damage your door frame. If you're really worried about it, you could try a pull-up stand like this.

That being said, I have this pull-up bar and it works for me and hasn't damaged my door frames yet.

u/TheBertinator3000 · 3 pointsr/fatlogic

This one has worked really well for me. It lets you get a much wider grip than most doorway bars because it doesn't constrain you to the width of the doorway.


u/Pr0phet · 3 pointsr/insanity

My journey so far is:

  • Power 90
  • Power 90 Master Series
  • P90X
  • Insanity
  • P90X/Insanity Hybrid

    I moved into Asylum from there. My impressions after two weeks is that it's insanely hard. Jumping into the Asylum feels like the difference between month 1 and month 2 of Insanity, given how I came to it. BUT! It's a lot more fun. I never once forget that I am in the middle of an Insanity workout during an Insanity workout. But it never fails that I forget that I'm working out during an Asylum workout because I'm actually having fun.

    Of all the workouts I've done, Asylum Vol. 1 is at once the hardest and most fun. Rock on.

    This is the same as BeachBody's pull-up bar, and far cheaper. You'll want dumbbells, any kind will do; just go for lighter weights. I hurt my wrist recently doing the Strength routine, so be careful. The exercises are very crossfit, and you can hurt yourself if your core isn't in great shape.

    Rock on! Enjoy it. :)
u/silasmoon · 3 pointsr/houston

It's this pullup bar

I assembled it, don't have the box, but honestly just never got around to using it since I was rock climbing. I can post pictures of the weights when I get a chance. They're just your standard hexagonal grey weights, no padding. The 10lb ones are padded with sort of a silicone wrap all the way around.

u/zackwcote · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

yeah they're great, provided it fits on your door it'll leave scuff marks/ slight indents at worse. I got this one on amazon; it's got much wider grips than they usually do, and it's been awesome so far. much better quality than the usual iron gym one.

u/TitaniuIVI · 3 pointsr/homegym

I would go for the rack since it's a lot more versatile than any individual piece of equipment. Also 8x8 isn't very big so you'll want to eliminate as many unitaskers as possible. With a budget of $600 you should try and look at used equipment on OfferUp or Craigslist to get better quality equipment, but new is not out of the question.

Here's a list of what you can get for a pretty decent setup at $600...

(Prices are sale prices. Sign up for CamelCamelCamel or Keepa and set alerts for the items on Amazon. The frequently go down to the prices listed)

Item | Price
Fitness Reality 810XLT Power Rack | $150
Fitness Reality Adjustable Bench | $85
CAP Barbell 300 lb. Olympic Grip Weight Set | $180
4 ft. x 6 ft. x 3/4 in. Thick Rubber Stall Mat | $40 x 3
Valor Fitness MB-A BD-7 Dip Handle Accessory Set | $35
CAP Barbell Olympic 2-Inch Plate and Bar Storage Rack | $30

That gets you to the $600 budget on the dot.

This should cover most of your needs. You can replace the plate tree with some Titan weight pegs to hang from the rack if you want that instead. You can also just throw some plywood on the floor instead of the floor mats or mix and match plywood and floor mats.

This is almost the same setup I have except I was able to pick up some dumbells and plates off OfferUp so it came out a little cheaper. So far my home gym setup is at $520 and all I'm missing is the stall mats so I should be hitting the $600 goal myself once I get those.

u/leducdeguise · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

There are pullup bars that go on top of doorframes like this one, maybe you can find one and settle the bar issue. As for bands/rings, I bought 2 lashing straps so I could do rows.

The best thing you can do is to get some form of massage- a foam roller or "stick". Honestly those are completely worth the money and really help loosen up your calves and achilles. Other than that, ice and stretch and ibuprofen!

u/Privac · 3 pointsr/P90X

Medicine balls: I used two med balls when I did P90X2 -- one for each hand. Both are the 8-pound versions of these. You could use up to 4 but that was way more money than I wanted to spend. When you use them, you're usually balancing on them anyway so the weight of the ball isn't much of an issue. I don't recall whether there were any exercises done with using them as actual weights...

Foam roller: I bought this one in 36" full round. Worked just fine.

I used X2 as a way to just become more fit in general. I lost about 15 pounds and gained some muscle for sure, but I didn't get massive -- I got bigger but it was more in a slim and fit-looking way if you know what I mean. I looked at the Body Beast stuff but couldn't stand the bro vibe.

P90X3 requires less equipment than X2 (no med balls, no foam roller), but does require a good range of dumbbells and I can recommend that program as well for all-around improvement. I am 2 days away from starting the third block of X3. It's challenging but fun. Shorter workouts does NOT mean easier in this case. Very few breaks and they are miniscule. A friend of mine did P90X and is now in love with X3 because of the massive time savings it provided.

Good luck!

u/brother_dean · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Yeah I can imagine your frustration and if you have it as a mental goal its quite hard to let go of it.

I'd say carry on trying to do a Sit-Up every so often as your strength progresses. It might turn out that you will end up being able to do them and its not going to wreck your back just doing 1. But I doubt its a strength issue, probably more to do with flexibility or spinal mobility (both get harder to improve as you get older and if you push your boundries with them you can end up in a lot of pain and trouble).

People hate ab workouts but I really love em, I'm always switching exercises and trying new things. Frog Crunches and Ab Wheels are also a cool thing to try if you haven't tried em.

EDIT: Just to add, I saw someone else here write that having a bigger upperbody than lowerbody will mean you can't do Sit-Ups, thats definatly not true.

2nd EDIT: Also, if you want to work on flexibility (and reduce soreness after workouts) check this routine & video out: http://www.defrancostraining.com/ask-joe-test/44-flexibilitymobility/302-joe-ds-qlimber-11q-flexibility-routine.html

All you need to do is buy a cheap foam roll (I bought this one off Amazon- http://www.amazon.com/Black-High-Density-Foam-Rollers/dp/B0040NJOA0/) and then do them after workouts. You don't need to do them in the gym you can even do them around an hour after working out when your at home.

u/NEET_Here · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Get a foam roller and use it on your IT band, helps with knee pain. Most important thing though is getting good squat form. I recommend practice with body weight squats and replicate that movement with a barbell on your shoulders from the beginning.

If it hurts too much with a foam roller or you don't want to get one, you can try this method

u/flanny0210 · 3 pointsr/homegym


  1. Don’t buy standard weights, you’re limiting your gains.

  2. That setup will make you top-heavy (bench only and is more geared towards upper-body)

    What’s your budget? You should mainly be looking at a bar/plate weight set, power rack, and bench. Those are the essentials to get you started

    Edited with examples:

    [Power Rack] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N4I8FOY/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522255563&sr=1-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&dpPl=1&dpID=51zDbd7D5ML&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1)

    [Bar/Plates] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002OP1Z44/ref=mp_s_a_1_56?ie=UTF8&qid=1522255853&sr=1-56&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&th=1&psc=1)

    [Bench] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01CR4XFIK/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1522255972&sr=1-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&dpPl=1&dpID=41vzSDbCOxL&ref=plSrch)

    Those are just examples of what you should look for...you can adjust according to your budget, and of course always scout out Craigslist/FB Marketplace/any second-hand sites in your area.
u/MassivelyMini · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

u/jxcb345 · 3 pointsr/oakland

Yeah, I would also say to start carrying pepper spray just in case it's needed as a last resort - it's cheap and portable. If you don't have any experience with it, practice using it (NOT into the wind) so you have some muscle memory if you ever have to actually use it. I like this one.

u/relax_its_fine · 3 pointsr/SelfDefense

In his ama Johnny Knoxville said getting sprayed with Sabre red pepper spray was the most painful thing he's ever experienced. I've used it three times (work late nights in a terrible area) and it instantly takes someone out of a fight. It's a lot easier to explain pepper spraying someone to the cops than it is to have to defend why your knuckles are bruised and the other dude is unconscious.

u/_captain-shitacular_ · 3 pointsr/legaladvice

This is a completely valid and understandable reply regarding firearms. Even if it's not a gun, especially if it's not a gun, I still urge you to find a suitable weapon for daily carry.

Sabre pepper gel is reliable, doesn't leak, and because it's a gel as opposed to an aerosolized spray it doesn't atomize in the wind and can't blow back at you. I carry this and a punch dagger (cannot be taken away from you easily because the handle is completely wrapped in your palm).
Stun guns are not generally reliable, but again I recommend Sabre products, they make a stun gun that gets good reviews for reliability and power, and is supposedly effective through up to 3 layers of clothing. Expandable batons and baseball bats also have merits, but I wouldn't recommend either unless your upper body strength is better than average.

The idea is not to attack your ex on sight and it's not to avoid calling the police completely. The idea is to call the police when he shows up and have a last-ditch weapon concealed on your person if his violence escalates to intent to kill (you don't get close to him, but you make damn sure he won't walk away if he gets too close to you).

As I said, guns aren't everyone's cup of tea, and not the best for every situation; however, opting to not have viable self defense options at all is foolish. Please, for your own safety, research some serious self-defense options that will work for your situation. Domestic violence usually escalates over time and I've read too many stories of women that call the cops and try to talk it out every time who are murdered when their abusers finally go off the deep end. Anything is better than nothing, and if you ever have to use it, you're already dead and have nothing to lose.

u/MjrGrangerDanger · 3 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

If this is legal in your area it's what police use and suggest if you aren't comfortable with a firearm.

It's a gel so it doesn't have the blowback issues common with sprays.

Consider something like this for next to the bed. And just don't let your child know the combo.

If you have a door frame you can buy a pull up bar. No need to mount or anything, it just hinges on the door frame.

And then you can buy rings and attach them to that pull up bar.

And now you can do all kinds of pull ups and push ups.

u/UniverseChamp · 3 pointsr/gainit

Here’s what I would recommend for starting home training balancing cost and utility. Obviously, if you afford all of it and have the space, just do that.

1-pullup bar or rings

2-resistance bands

3-dumbbells (shop for used, if possible, if space is tight try these)

4-adjustable bench (same, used benches go for as low as $30)

5-barbell set (time to start deadlifting)

6-power rack (don’t go cheap here)

u/MarbleZoo · 3 pointsr/normalnudes

/r/EatCheapAndHealthy is great.

When I wanted to put on weight it was 3-6 eggs, toast and a juice or a protein shake each day for breakfast, turkey sandwich for lunch, fruit and nuts throughout the day, and either two chicken breasts or whatever I felt like for dinner. Didn't plan on it being "health food," but that's more or less how it turned out. Once your main diet shifts to natural foods the shit becomes less appealing.

Bodyweight workouts can do a lot more than you might think, as well. Get a set of gymnastic rings if you can, they make any bodyweight workout dramatically harder and more productive by forcing many more muscles to work in order to maintain balance and form. The set I got served me well for a time, but shop around. Use them for pushups, pull ups, dips, anything. Get creative with them. Invent your own exercises.

u/squarezz · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Just get a pair of regular rings for half the price. You can use these for all the exercises you need, I would imagine it's a bit more akward trying to do muscle ups on those freestyle trainers you posted.

Learn to be comfortable with the Cataplexy, as fighting or resisting it, both physically and/or mentally, will amplify and intensify the episode. That doesn't mean you can prevent the Cataplexy but you can be more prepared for it (as fearing it only plays directly into it being worse) and this can dissipate the longevity, or intensity of it.

I'll get to the ground ASAP when I feel a strong, or as I think of it moderate, episode of C hit, sometimes it's like an awkward collapse and other times it's no big deal. Once to the ground, I sprawl out so that I can relax 100% of my body, all muscles. During this, I basically meditate, I take my mind away from anything and everything going on around me, I focus only on my core, counting and breathing. Before I finally adjusted and became comfortable with it, to it (which was over many years all while totally unaware of what N w/ C was), I'd fight and resist the C in all ways, it would appear like I was having a seizure, there'd also be much worse after effects along with susceptibility of more attacks.

Can someone critique my plan for creating a home gym:

I am going to get 3 of these mats and get 18 2'x4' pieces of plywood. I'll lay the plywood 2 pieces thick in this formation and put the mats on top. I'll place a power rack in this formation such that the entrance is facing to the right. This will be done in a room on the second floor of my house--will this be enough to dampen the impact of deadlifts (up to at least 400 lbs)?

u/PapsmearAuthority · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Obviously check craigslist for deals, but be careful. I'd get the rack new (I have the 'valor fitness bd-9', which is fine since I don't squat 350 lb). I got a good deal on used weights + bar, but I'd still echo other ppl's suggestion to get the bar new, especially if you want to do oly lifts and/or already lift a ton of weight. Works ok for me since I don't jerk/snatch any more, and my numbers aren't very high. If you do get a used bar, be super sure it's not bent even the tiniest bit. You probably also want mats, too, so don't forget that. Some ppl buy horse stable mats from farm supply stores or w/e for cheap, but you can also get something like https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B4IHXRU. When you DL, it'll eventually smash a super compressed rut into the mat, but you can rotate/swap the tiles when the happens if you're concerned. For weights, buy them used or on sale only. You may have to collect your weights over a longer period of time to get good deals. Make sure to weigh any weights you buy.


It'll still end up being pretty expensive, and depending on your area and the deals you find it might take 2 years to pay for itself. The real value is in the convenience and flexibility, which should let you work out more often in less time with any schedule.


FWIW, if I had space I would have gotten an actual cage, but those individual stands get the job done, at least at my modest weight (my garage barely fits the current equipment comfortably).

You don't need much.

I built my home gym for maybe $600~ and I run a 6 day PPL routine. My numbers aren't anything insane, so I didn't go all out on rogue/big name brand equipment.

Bench $150~ (http://www.amazon.com/Bowflex-SelectTech-3-1-Adjustable-Bench/dp/B015EPG6OO)

Rack $100-$300 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HYQP72O/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687642&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B00KIOPGE8&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0HGG2ZX0QXEJ4DWW9FFA)

Barbell + Weights $200+ - Check craigslist first, otherwise you can find some killer deals online. (http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10793623) - Everybody is going to suggest getting an olympic bar, but if money is tight and you're a novice lifter, there's nothing wrong with going standard. Just remember that, once you do break out of the novice category, for safety reasons, Olympic is eventually the way to go.

Dumbbells - I literally bought the $20 dumbbell set from wal-mart that's adjustable, and I just swap standard plates on it. I go up to 50lbs with no problems on each db.

Over time you can add other things, such as a dip bar. I bought one for $90 on Amazon.

If you want to do pulldowns, check out this: http://www.roguefitness.com/spud-inc-econo-tricep-and-lat-pulley

Remember, you don't need any crazy equipment or anything, and most of the cheap stuff will get you started until you start lifting REALLY heavy. At the end of the day, weights are weights.

A lot of people like to talk down about cheaper equipment, especially bowflex equipment (such as the bench I linked), but unless you're pushing a 300lb bench press, or squatting over 300lbs, this is going to be fine. No need to break the bank on a $300 bench or $600 rogue fitness rack right off the bat.

If your budget is even more limited, get a bench, adjustable dumbbells, and additional weights. Throw in a pull-up bar you can put in a door frame for pull-ups, chin-ups, and knee raises. That's a decent start.

"Reasonably priced" is..well..relative. I love Rogue products and I respect their American-made ethos greatly and I love how flexible all of their systems are, but you are paying for all of that. You can't get a squat rack under $345 from them (S-1). And, per context of this conversation, that doesn't have the pullup bar; you have to go to the S-2 at $425. Don't get me wrong, that rack is fucking tough, but the price is too.
If you pay less you will get less, but you might not need something as bomb-proof as Rogue.

You could, theoretically, rest a bar on the squat rack of this power tower: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HYQP72O?redirect=true&ref_=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza. The squat rack goes "low enough to do bench press" which should be low enough to do rows. The only risk, of course, would be that the bar rolls off the rack while you're doing rows -- but the rack looks pretty deep so that shouldn't be a problem.

You need to strengthen your wrist and workout dude. I used to have shitty issues with my wrists before the military. Once I started working out all my wrist/elbow issues went away.

  1. Get a grip trainer
  2. Get a power ball/Gyro
  3. Start working out. Pushups, situps, squats. Hell, do Yoga.
  4. Once you are out of the cast, lay off the damn games for a couple weeks, or you're going to have the same issues.
  5. Make sure when you DO play games, you have your desk, chair, and wrists at the proper position. Having kinked wrists will cause most carpal tunnel issues that I have seen and experienced. If you can afford it, a standing desk is best, period.

    I guess these are just my views, but getting a standing desk (the apex pro one from costco is great) and working out lessened all my wrist issues, and now, 10 years after the military I have zero wrist/elbow issues even when I play games for 5 hours after working for 8 hrs at a keyboard.

u/turtlenecksandshotgu · 2 pointsr/Bass

There's a good chance that you need to keep your thumb lower on the back of the neck, it gives you much more mobility. If your pinky isn't strong enough, either use it a lot or get one of these to work out your pinky. I definitely think it's your grip, though. Slide your thumb , it should help.

And to get a clearer tone, make sure your fingers are as close to the right side of the fret as possible, it eliminates buzz and gives your tone more clarity. Obviously, make sure you push the string all the way down and don't mute any other strings.

Good luck!

My brother uses one of these things

u/leonard71 · 2 pointsr/Guitar

A few tips for getting a clean bar chord:

  • Make sure your thumb is behind the neck, not over the top. Improves your leverage on your bar finger.
  • Make sure your bar finger is as close to the fret you want to bar as possible.
  • Try a lighter gauge string, it'll reduce the tension on the strings and require less hand strength for a clean bar
  • Make sure your guitar is properly set up where the string heights are even and your action is correct. Also try lower action as long as you aren't getting a lot of fret buzz.

    If none of those work, you just need to keep practicing and develop your hand strength. Bar chords take a fair amount of pressure from your hand to get them clean, especially on acoustics. I used to use one of these things when I was a beginner and they seem to help.

Mine never hurt me. I had one almost identical to this one--same place on the same wrist. It just didn't bother me but it slowly got larger and larger until I asked my doctor to drain it. He did it almost the exact same way as on this video too...

...Then he said, "oooey-gooey, thick and chewy!" just before he injected a steroid into my wrist to try to prevent it from recurring.

Edit: It did recur, but I got rid of it by using one of those hand strengthening things: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006GCBL4/

My theory is that it forces the joints to "open" enough that the synovial fluid can very gradually redistribute.

Buy a TheraBand Flex Bar. They're basically magic.


u/super_soaker_sheriff · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I suffered from RSI for a time after I started working (mainly ulnar nerve entrapment). I switched to Dvorak about 4 years ago because of the reported RSI relief. I also own an ErgodoxEZ which I use as my daily driver.

Overall I'd say that the switch to a more ergonomic keyboard was a bigger factor in minimizing RSI than switching keyboard layouts. It'll be much less of an adjustment as well, and you keep the portability of QWERTY. It took me close to a month and a half to get back to a proficient typing speed after switching, which may be a deal breaker for you.

I'd also recommend a TheraBand FlexBar to help with the wrist issues. It's really helped me out and I still use it whenever my wrists act up.

Good luck!

u/5isoutofthequestion · 2 pointsr/powerlifting

I also get mad forearm tendinitis from lowbar, so much so, that when I still squatted, I almost exclusively did front squats after I didn't find a way to adjust my lowbar form to compensate. You could try Ben Pollack's talon grip though, it definitely helps relieve the stress, I was just never able to make it that stable, but I have super tiny hands, so that could've been related.

I find using this to help me the most : https://www.amazon.com/TheraBand-Tendonitis-Resistance-Tendinitis-Intermediate/dp/B000KGOMBC/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=therabar&qid=1572648692&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-4

Looks like a floppy green dildo, but it really helps stretch/strengthen the muscles affected by tendinitis from lowbar. That plus extensor training as /u/bigcoachD suggested, is really what will help you the most. I also use the therabar for my carpal tunnel that I developed from my typing intense job haha.

u/DragonsExMachina · 2 pointsr/climbing

Get one of these...yes you'll be embarassed when you open the box, yes you'll have old ladies scowling at you if they see you using it, but it really helps warm up the forearms, shoulders, etc. It also cured (or helped cure) my climber's elbow (medial epicondylitis).

Check out /r/homegym for some good info on that - the gist of it is you'd need some type of safety equipment to do it alone, like a power rack or squat rack.

Craigslist can, in some areas, be a great way to pick up a used rack for a better price than new.

u/charlesgrodinfan · 2 pointsr/circlejerkseattle
u/emmygurl09 · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

My husband and I have our DIY setup in our garage and absolutely love it! I was hesitant to purchase a new Peloton since I had never been the workout-at-home type and was worried this expensive piece of workout equipment would become a dust collector in our garage. We decided to try the DIY workaround before investing a lot of money into the "real" thing.

We use a Sunny B1805 with the Wahoo Cadence sensor attached to the crank arm. I really wanted a magnetic belt drive and this one was probably the most affordable we found. I wish we had spent a little more and invested in a bike that comes with SPD pedals since I know we will be upgrading those in the near future. Other than that the bike is great and I highly recommend it!

We live in CA where the weather is mild pretty much all year so we decided to put the bike in our garage. We screen cast the classes to a TV we have hung up on the wall using an AppleTV and use our phones to view cadence in the Wahoo app. I also have a FitBit Versa that I use for HR purposes, though it does not sync with the Peloton app (huge bummer).

Other odds and ends we have in our setup: WiHoo Mini Handheld Portable Fan we attach to the tablet holder, floor fan, a set of Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbells for strength classes (we don't do weights on the bike), and a basic Yoga mat.

It has surprised me just how happy I am with this setup! I thought I would feel like I was missing out by not having the leader board and not being able to track my stats. But I have yet to take a live class since the times don't work well for us west coasters with 9-5 jobs and commutes. And while I would like to be able to see output and resistance, I don't feel like my workout is suffering for not having them. I used to take spin classes regularly and most of those were about feel rather than exact numbers.

We've been using this setup since July and, honestly, I don't see myself buying a Peloton now. If anything I may upgrade to a better bike at some point. But for $20 a month I am getting an excellent workout that dips and sways with my schedule. I don't think I could justify being locked into $40 a month when I don't feel I am missing out much on the extras that come with the full price.

Here's a pic of our setup.

u/pj530i · 2 pointsr/oculus

Yeah, I was thinking something like these:


It would be like a tracked "dock" that you'd set your controllers in and attach different weights to simulate different objects

u/psychometry · 2 pointsr/P90X

If you want a complete weight set but don't have room to store it, buy some Bowflex SelectTechs. I completed p90x with these and they worked great (and quickly).

u/TheRealBigLou · 2 pointsr/P90X

Others have suggested PowerBlocks, but to me, they were far too bulky. I instead have a set of SelectTech 552 dumbbells and love them for P90X!

They have a dial which lets you switch between 5 and 52.5lbs in 2.5lbs increments for the first 25 pounds, and 5lbs incremements after that. They are very quick to switch the weights so I never have to pause the workout to go from 45lbs to 15lbs.


u/Rawtashk · 2 pointsr/movies

1: pullup bar. You don't need some fancy $50 one.

2: Pushup stands. Again, you don't need to spend $40 on 2 pieces of angled plastic or metal. (don't use the pushup stands to start with. Do the first 3 weeks without them, then step up to them after your chest has built up a bit).

3: Weights. If you have some money, I would suggest the select tech dumbells. They're $300, but you'll save time by being able to easily adjust them for every workout.

Or, get a starter weight set like this. There's probably something like that at walmart too. But, DO NOT GET THE SET THAT HAS WIDE PLASTIC WEIGHTS!!!! You won't be able to use them for anything else because they take up the whole bar. After you get the weight set you can buy individual plates like this.

But, if you really have the money, then I would really suggest the select tech ones. When you have you 1 minute break between sets you'll want to sit down and rest for a second, not sit there and have to take the collars off, put on new weights, then collar them back on every single time.

4: Take a "before" picture while shirtless from the front, and from the side. Take one while flexing as well. In 3 weeks you're going to be tired. You'll want to stop. You won't think you've made any progress. That's when you pull out that picture and compare it to yourself now. You see yourself every day, so you don't notice the gradual changes. You see that progress with your own eyes....and then you get excited. "I did that in 3 or 4 weeks?!? Holy shit! I can't wait to see what the next 30 days brings my way!!!". That's going to be your reward, and it will keep you motivated.

5: Download a calorie counter for your phone. I used the one by Fat Secret. TRACK WHAT YOU DO AND WHAT YOU EAT! It's really not that hard, and you can simply scan in most labels on things you eat, or look them up in its database. THIS IS CRUCIAL! 80% of your results will depend on what you eat. If you eat shit, you'll look like shit, even if you workout every day :-/

But, the MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU NEED is self-will. You will not want to do it. You will be tired, you will be sore, you will want to quit. DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF. You're tired, yes...but I promise you that you'll have more energy AFTER a workout than you did before it. You're sore? Too bad, still do a workout. Working those muscles drives blood to them, which is crucial to getting that soreness out.

I give you this 100% promise....If you eat right and if you exercise for 90 days, I PROMISE YOU that you won't look at yourself in the mirror and say "damn. I wish I'd never exercised". I promise you.

u/Coffinspire15 · 2 pointsr/homefitness

I've been working out at home for 6 months now with, IMO, significant improvements. I'll mention that my goal is to gain muscle, not lose weight, but you should still be able to take away something from my advice. I get a lot of my cardio from the youtube channel fitness blenders. They are super nice, easy to follow, and they have a ton of videos. I owe my budding ab definition to their videos. Secondly, I use resistance bands for all sorts of different exercises. I bought these specific ones for $25 and they're still going strong. You can double them up for added resistance as you progress. Lastly, I wound up buying adjustable dumbbells recently. They are costly, but are compact and I can change the weight in a flash. These may not be needed right away. I personally waited to get this 5 months in to make sure I was persistent with working out, so I didn't waste the money. I hope some of this helps! Good luck!

u/toxiclimeade · 2 pointsr/knives

If he had been carrying a Swiss Army knife that's probably the style he prefers, Opinel makes single bladed knives that open in the same way his old SAK did, and leatherman makes amazing multitools, I would recommend checking all these brands out.

Opinel knives are usually extremely cheap and run about 20$/£, their most popular knife is the No. 8 for about 12$/£, it comes in other colors and wood types as well. No. 8 is a bigger model and it might be a little bulky for someone use to a SAK, the small the number in the name ex. No. 7, No.6, get smaller as their number designation does. I have the No. 8 Trekking knife in slate and its a pretty great knife for its price (18$/£).

If he likes Swill Army Knives, there are quite a few more options to look at, they can get a little pricey for their size at times, I own the Tinker, this was my first knife and I have found that looking at the tools on these knives would behoove you. I do not need an awl in the knife I carry every day for instance. There are many many options to chose from, and through a little sifting you may find one that you feel suits him best. Victorinox (the brand that makes swiss army knives) also makes knives that are a little closer to the opinels I mentioned earlier, a few of their models (like this one) are simply one or two blades. I would look into local laws however, I know some places do not allow blades that can be opened with one hand like the one I linked you to.

Leatherman makes wonderful multitools and a few pocket knives. Nearly everything they make have blades that lock as a safety feature, although very few can be flicked open, so I would check the specifics of this law, I doubt a multi-tool is illegal. This is the Micra, it appears to be a smaller version of a leatherman I own that I cannot find on their site. This one has a blade that opens in a way that is legal for sure, its blade does not lock either. If you find that some locking blades are allowed, the Skeletool is a favorite of mine, it may look a little outlandish but it has always had the best combination of essential tools out of any of my multi-tools, and it is one of my favorites. The Style is a smaller version with slightly different tools ( I don't think it has screwdrivers), but it's blade does not lock. The skeletool is about 70$/£ I think, and their smaller tools like the micra and style are under 30$/£, this brand has quite a bit more I didn't touch on, if you think he would like something like this I would check out site, I hope you find something that works, I know I'm always thrilled when my girlfriend gets me a new knife.

u/unexpected_drums · 2 pointsr/tifu

Considering he kept mentioning self-defense even when you said that's not your intention...sounds like they were just messing with you (why, idk).

You probably already found a pocketknife replacement, but I had the same idea as you and found the Opinel no. 8. It's cheap, sharp, and doesn't look too threatening. If anything it's just a picnic knife but it can cut through boxes & zip-ties just fine.

u/ALeapAtTheWheel · 2 pointsr/knives

This answer assumes 1) you want a few knives to cover different uses and 2) you can dig in the couch cushions for $3.53 or you can wait for Amazon's prices to fluctuate just a little bit. The price on the Kershaw jumped $3 just while I am typing this up...

EDC: Kershaw Blur, $54.17. I'm a little goofy, and I like the serrated tanto even though it looks like ass. I assume for most people, they'd prefer the straight blade. I've had one for a few years, and it works great. Just the right size, comfortable grippy handle, and I love the opening mechanism.

Camping knife: Condor Tool and Knife Bushlore 4.375-Inch Drop Point Blade, $36.41. The QA on fit and finish is apparently an issue with this company, but I didn't notice any problem on mine. It's not going to win a beauty competition, but its a hard worker. One of the comments on Amazon says it's the AK-47 of the knife world. I'm inclined to agree.

Inconspicuous Folder: Opinel #8, $12.95. I don't actually own one of these, so caveat emptor, but they come highly recommended by the hive mind. It's a classy looking folder that you could carry around in your suit's jacket pocket or your briefcase.

Old Hickory kitchen knives. They're carbon steel and will rust if you don't clean and dry them after each use, but the thin blades and good geometry made a $12 butcher my favorite knife in the block. Mine took some work with a file to get the point sharp, but for $10 it was worth it.

Estwing tools. My hammer has kept grinning through 15 years of work, and still is in excellent shape. One reviewer complains of a ringing noise- never heard it.

u/TOUCHER_OF_SHEEP · 2 pointsr/knives

As /u/TheUseOfWords said, it's a cool looking shape but uses 420 stainless steel (shitty, in other words). If you want it to look at or are willing to constantly be sharpening it, go for it, but I'd otherwise get an Opinel which looks similar (if not as pretty) and is a lot more utilitarian- though you'd have to take care of the steel a bit to prevent it from rusting.

u/LeaningOnTheSun · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Okay! I'll give these a go one by one;

  1. You need almost nothing to do bodyweight fitness. If you have a place to do pull-ups and dips you're all set. Most stuff with the door is effective enough but I would recommend getting a door frame pull-up bar and some gymnastic rings so if the weather sucks you won't have to miss your workout.

  2. Weighted jump ropes are a great start. Some resistance bands like these are great for mobility work and adding assistance or resistance. I like to use a basic pair of push-up bars like these because they're easy on the wrist and add some range of motion to your push-ups.

  3. Super useful! Check it

  4. If you eat right and stick to your plan you'll get stronger and add muscle mass. Cut properly and do cardio and you get easily get a very defined physique. If aesthetics are your main goal though you should stick to a traditional bodybuilding routine.

  5. Supplements aren't necessary. I like fish oil though. As far as protein goes as long as you eat meat and eggs you'll get enough to build muscle.

    Good luck! Calisthenics is super fun. I still do weightlifting when I find myself at the gym but bodyweight fitness has become my primary goal.

    Check out these channels/sites for tons of inspiration and info.

I have this style which is very similar. I like it for pull ups and frequently use it for push-ups to change angles and positioning from my regular push-ups.

The thing that may or may not work for some people is the distance between the curved bars. As you can see in this photo, the bars are quite close together which does not make them ideal for an L-Sit. That means most probably need to buy push-up bars or something similar to get the angles right.

u/ilykdp · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I wouldn't recommend doing it on any surface that isn't the right width - just a little wider than shoulder width.

I have this pull up bar and these olympic rings that I do dips on.

This way you can do dips with proper form and will make it easier to do negative training.

u/generousheart · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I have this one and am quite satisfied with it. I would caution you to measure your doors first, and also check the strength of the molding. This type of pullup bar puts weight on the frame above the door, so if you have cheap molding it's coming down.


u/OrangeJuliusPage · 2 pointsr/fatpeoplestories

> I could never have done a pull up without the assistance machine. I'm still fairly heavy, and female, and have never had much upper body strength. Still don't, actually.

Yeah, not to sound like a misogynist, you have way less testosterone coursing through your veins than even a male whussbag, so you get a bit of a free pass for being untrained and formerly sedentary and not being able to do a pullup. For dudes, that is still pretty awful, though.

> I don't have anyone to watch or a good mirror, but I do what I can when I can.

I hear ya. YouTube has a lot of really good form videos, though. For most of us "close enough" is fine.

> I'm purchasing some weights as soon as I get paid again so that I can do some curls and such, probably just a few 5-10 lb to start and I'll buy heavier when I'm ready. I know a few exercises with smaller weights, not much else.

That is really a pretty useless workout plan. You'd be better off saving that money and rolling it into a gym membership, instead. You won't get any kind of decent results with weight like that, and instead of wasting your time on that and doing infinite pointless curls, just take a few old gallons of milk and fill them with sand or dirt or something, and voila, you functionally have those small weights that you can use for shoulder presses and whatnot.

> I've looked at bodyweight stuff, but a lot of it seems really difficult considering my weight and weak arms.

Just work up to it. Pushups are free, all you need are a couple chairs to do dips, and for like $25, you can get a great pullup bar off Amazon.

> Gotta start somewhere, but where. I wish I had regular access to more equipment!

Do you live nowhere near a cheap gym or YMCA or something? If you are a university student, or merely a broke-ass mofo, their rates can be surprisingly reasonable.

u/P-K-One · 2 pointsr/spartanrace

...So if you have a backyard with a rig you can train for the rig? Who would have thought? When people say "You can't train for that" what they usually mean implicitly is "unless you literally have one in your backyard". :)

For those expecting something different from this video, I can recommend you one of those:

They really fit into every doorway. I put a towel on it and do towel pull ups which are great for grip. If you want more versatility in objects there are also various special grip things that you can attach to any bar/rig:

It's not the same as having a rig but it's the closest you can get in a small apartment.

u/elchupinazo · 2 pointsr/P90X

I also have extremely wide doorframes, and I finally found this guy that fits all the way across my doorframe (with room to spare).

u/kevmo77 · 2 pointsr/P90X

Price of ultimate plan: $370

P90X base plan: $140

Pull Up Bar: $30

Push Up Bars: $10

Chin Up Assist $35. This is a handy tool but a chair will suffice.

The recovery drink, while not a total waste of money, can be replaced with much cheaper supplements. I do stuff like protein powder and a frozen banana in a blender. Equivalent cost $40.

The real issue with ultimate package is the bands. You're going to want real weights. I went to a second hand sports equipment store and got a set of free weights at $.50 a pound. A nice full set will be in the $150 range.

Total: Around $400.

So for around $30 more, you can buy a much better set up than what's offered in the ultimate package. If you stick with it, you're going to replace the bands anyway.

u/AdvocateReason · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Shoulders are what you need. You'll see results in two weeks, man. Get a copy of P90X through whatever means you have at your disposal ::cough::torrentifyou'vegotnomoney::cough::. Purchase these and this. Do not let that pull up bar intimidate you, man. You will be able to do pullups if you go the 90 days. Shoulders and Arms is the best routine. Stick with it for two weeks and that t-shirt will look a LOT better on you - of course it's way too big in the first place, but you don't want to go spending money on fitting clothes that you're going to shrink out of (if you stick with the P90X). You're also going to want something like this and maybe a few free weights if you're planning on getting serious with it, but really all you need right now is the bands to bulk those shoulders up. Get the resistance bands and do either the shoulder/bicep/tricep workout or get all of it and do the full workout. That will make you look better than any clothing you could purchase and make you feel better about yourself. Also post fashion pics of gf.

EDIT: Uhh...I just looked at your GW posts. You OWE it to your gf to buy those resistance bands. Forget the clothes, do the P90X routine!

Ehmm... yeah, I wasn't clear enough. What I mean is normal wide pull-up bar versus narrow doorway pull-up bar. I've called the latter 'chin-up' because I can't make a real pull-up on it - it's too narrow for me, I need more space between my wrists. Sorry for misleading.

u/BiologyIsHot · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

So apparently I was wrong. The doorway itself is ~36.5 with about 1.75 inch trim around it. I was measuring trim-to-trim. Still fairly difficult to find, but I think this one will work and it isn't 30% 1-star reviews saying it smells like petrol and broken in 2 days

u/Berkamyah · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Not sure what your price range is.... but if you can swing it, get a cage.

I've got the fitness reality power cage as I lift at home alone. Of course it's great for safe squatting, but if you're also gonna lift alone like I do, a cage will allow you to push yourself harder on bench and other push exercises knowing you're not gonna kill yourself if you slip up. Biggest detrimate to progress is injury and we're doing this for our health in the first place right?

I prefer the computer mat because it's huge! But that is the downside as well, takes up a lot of space.

u/khanhd92 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

The mousepad is actually a gun cleaning mat from Tekmat. They come in a variety of sizes depending on the type of gun blueprint that you choose. I also recommend these speakers if you can find them on craiglist or a yard sale. You just need to do a crossover upgrade (kits and tutorials are available with a little Googling) and they will blow any other bookshelf speakers with a MUCH higher price range out of the water.

Here's a link to the AR15 mat: http://www.amazon.com/TekMat-12-Inch-36-Inch-Cleaning-Imprint/dp/B0036N474S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427589159&sr=8-1&keywords=tekmat

Yes, indeed. OP, get yourself one of these if you don't have one already. It helps tremendously with muscle soreness.

To work your lower back on it, toss it down, lie on top of it with the roller going across your lower back, and use your legs to roll your upper body across it, from ass to mid-upper back. Feels so damn good.

u/shutyercornhole · 2 pointsr/SelfDefense

For the most part this was exactly the outcome you could hope for. You are self aware and continually check your surroundings for exactly this purpose. They identified you as a potential target but then you engaged them, identified them, and chose the wisest path of egress. You did not present the easy target they may have been searching for.

IMHO, groups like this are only a threat as long as they're together. While personal alarms (almost as effective as car alarms), and stun guns hold a purpose neither would be effective in this situation. Pepper spray could strike multiple opponents and buy you the time to Get Outta Dodge. Keep doing what you're doing. Consider adding something like this to your daily carry: https://www.amazon.com/SABRE-Red-Pepper-Gel-Strength/dp/B004NKSPR8/ref=sr_1_4?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1484697105&sr=1-4&keywords=pepper+spray+self+defense

Don't be afraid to challenge, appear mentally unstable, or to engage early if you're threatened. Best of luck.

u/StrangerMind · 2 pointsr/bugout
  • Pepper Spray - You can keep 4 legged and 2 legged animals away. I like the foam versions.
  • Crank/Solar Flashlight/Radio/Phone Charger - Lets you get updates on news and weather and allows you to replace your flashlight (keep the headlamp) with this.
  • Whistle - They really weigh a fraction of an ounce so no reason not to have one for emergencies.
  • Small notepad and pen - Writing down notes (like if the news lists a set of roads that are totally blocked or whatever)
  • Cards - if you think you will get bored.
  • Glow Sticks - Fire may not be your friend in a big city. A few 8-12 hour glow sticks could come in handy.

    It did not sound like you were looking at a true SHTF emergency so I left out things like a flat pry bar or silock key or some of the other larger items you would not need just because of a hurricane or something.

u/ScrewpyNoopers · 2 pointsr/Portland
u/cas_sj · 2 pointsr/pelotoncycle

Welcome here! I'll jump in on some of this....

I've worn Fitbits for several years - like 'em and think they're probably very good as pedometers and overall activity trackers during the day. But they really don't work well for strenuous exercise. The technology with the optical sensors simply doesn't react quickly enough to be accurate.

Much more accuracy with a chest strap heart rate monitor (I think gold standard) - my choice, a Wahoo tickr (https://www.amazon.com/Wahoo-TICKR-Monitor-iPhone-Android/dp/B00INQVYZ8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496324625&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=heart+rate+monitor&psc=1). But I've used cheaper models in the past like this Garmin (https://www.amazon.com/Garmin-MAIN-61562-Heart-Rate-Monitor/dp/B000UOD5QM/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1496324625&sr=8-4&keywords=heart+rate+monitor) and they do fine. A lot of people seem to like the Scosche arm bands (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JQHTJS2/ref=twister_B00KWHQJJW?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1) - I can't speak to the accuracy of those compared to a chest strap.

Regardless of what you go with, you'll want accurate heart rate feedback to sync with your bike (Bluetooth and/or ANT+ connectivity). Unless they've changed things with the newer Fitbits, I don't believe your Fitbit will sync with the bike's Android tablet - you'll want your HR monitor to "transmit" to your tablet so you can follow your heart rate data/zones on the tablet as you ride. [One nice thing you've probably noticed tho - the bike now syncs/uploads your workouts to your Fitbit page - with accurate heart rate data from the bike assuming you're using an accurate HR monitor, so you don't have to log your workouts separately to Fitbit.]

Here's the mat that we use under our bike (https://www.amazon.com/SuperMats-P-V-C-Treadmills-Machine-2-5-Feet/dp/B004IJI7HW/ref=sr_1_1?s=sports-and-fitness&ie=UTF8&qid=1496325854&sr=1-1&keywords=supermats) - priced reasonable enough, and works fine. One note - if you're putting the bike on anything other than a hard surface (i.e. carpet), get a thick piece of plywood to go under the mat - really helps with stability.

I use Jaybirds and wouldn't ride without them, but there are much cheaper (and more expensive) options for Bluetooth earbuds. My wife doesn't like riding with earbuds and went with a small external speaker (https://www.amazon.com/SoundTorch-Generation-Bluetooth-Portable-Waterresistant/dp/B01GY84TFI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496325454&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=bluetooths+speakers&psc=1) that seems to put out pretty decent sound. Regardless of what you go with, you'll want to use something other than the speakers on the bike - they put out plenty of volume, but they're on the back of the tablet and sometimes the instructors sound "muffled" and can be hard to hear.

For what it's worth, my input.... ;-)

ps - Final thought on your concerns about moving the bike. Wheels are at the front, where most of the weight is with the flywheel and tablet, so I think you'll be fine - it's designed to be tipped at the front and wheeled into place.

u/Singletrack_Criminal · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

u/ViviElnora · 2 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

You should consider getting pepper spray and a taser for when you aren't at home, first step is to check if they are legal where you are.

If you decide to get pepper spray, this kind is a gel, so you don't have to worry about where the wind is coming from. As for a taser, this one appealed to me because it is designed to make it difficult for it to be taken from you.

u/Dev_Jaime · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

Depending on your State laws (Such as California) its legal to have better forms of OC Pepper Spray range in capsicum concentration, force distance, etc. Other states require licensing or training or make it illegal for consumers to carry. I'm licensed in the State of California for when I worked as a Security Officer to carry law enforcement grade Pepper spray which is 10% oleoresin capsicum (OC). If your state laws allow it, this is the brand I use that has 10 percent and a higher range (5.5 meters): Sabre Red (gel form) Note: I prefer gel form due to its more idiot proof for me personally. This brand has other forms available.

u/sennateg · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

These are ok. if you want an everyday,versatile watch, i'd probably go for the popular one with olive or blue/grey strap that you can find on amazon. I get compliments all the time and they look great with a leather strap. (FYI price is higher than when i bought it a couple months ago. it was around 26/27.00

u/trashpanda8 · 2 pointsr/Watchexchange

Well, I spent an hour typing this up before I accidentally hit refresh and deleted it all, so let's try this again.

Let me begin by saying that the T2E581, Weekender and camo NATO are all in good condition, they just don't get the wrist time that they deserve and that is why I am offering the lot up for trade. Ideally I would like to trade the whole lot for one watch although I'll consider offers for just one of my watches or pairings of one of my watches with the camo NATO.

First watch I'll describe is the Timex T2E581. It is a lovely watch that I very recently acquired in a trade, it just isn't my style and it hasn't (and likely wouldn't if I kept it) gotten the wrist time that it deserves. It is in good condition, although it does has a scratch that is barely noticeable around the twelve o'clock position. The watch's dial itself is a cream color with roman numerals (note the watchmaker's four (IIII) instead of IV) and a day and date window in the three o'clock position. The watch features the iconic indiglo feature, which is great at night, whether your out in the middle of no where or laying in bed and don't want to be blinded by the light of your phone.

Case Diameter: 40mm

Lug Width: 20mm

Water Resistance: 50m

Amazon lists this watch for just over $50. Link to Amazon page

Next is the Timex Weekender. I got this watch sometime in August and have only worn it a handful of times. The watch is in great condition and has no damage that I can see. The dial of this watch is an off-white color and the case is a silver color. The watch also features indiglo, just push the crown in and the dial will glow. The Weekender makes for a great beater and is great for camping, hiking, and whatever other outdoor activity your into. Included is the box, stand thing, and papers that it came with.

Case Diameter: 38mm

Lug Width: 20mm

Water Resistance: 30m

Along with the Weekender is the original blue with grey stripe NATO that it came with and a white with blue stripe Weekender NATO that I picked up at a flea market. Full disclosure: the white and blue strap appears a little worn and the white appears kinda discolored, although I did try to clean it. The blue and grey strap on the other hand is the strap that the Weekender came with and is in great condition. Both are comfortable and are 20mm wide, matching the lug width of the Weekender. Note that both of these straps are Weekender NATOs, meaning that they are one piece and slip through. Not sure if I described that well enough, but you can see what I'm talking about in the pictures if you compare them with the camo NATO.

Amazon lists the Weekender for just over $30. Link to Amazon page Note that I'm pretty sure the watch I linked is the white version and the one I am offering is off-white.

Last part of the lot is a high quality 20mm camo NATO strap. The strap is in excellent condition, it's actually never been worn. Like I said above, it's a great NATO, it's just not getting the wrist time it deserves so I figured I'd include it in this lot and see it go to a good home.

If I missed any details or if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or send a pm.

Happy Holidays!

u/HALF-turtles-SHELL · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm not a fan of either. Budget watches that I would consider:

u/CARTERsauce · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

See I bought a pair on sale at Urban (for like $40!) that were a 27 or 28, I can't remember, as a goal pair, but I had them for a while and I couldn't get them past my upper thighs so I ended up giving them to a girl, she moved away, and I know I'd fit into them now man, sucks.

A Timex is about $35 (Easy Reader, Weekender, Leather Weekender) unless you meant that until you can afford a quality watch, you're not gonna bother with one at all, which isn't really a bad idea.

u/JustinClarkv1 · 2 pointsr/offbeat

Anything below being a professional fighter and it's very unlikely that anyone will beat up someone larger then themselves, if a 6'4" breaks into my home, the odds are that I cannot defend myself in any form of hand-to-hand combat, I'd get my ass kicked regardless of how good a fighter I am for my weight.

I agree that firearms should be stored safely, but that doesn't make them impossible to get to, here is a safe that only takes pressing a finger against a scanner and can hold a pistol and 1-2 magazines.

Also, again, the whole ability to defend myself from gross abuses of power is a pretty neat perk. In an ideal world, sure, nobody would need a weapon, but we don't live in a perfect world, we live in the one that we have and have to live with that reality, not our fantasy.

u/MakeYouAGif · 2 pointsr/holdmyfries

u/morpen · 2 pointsr/terriblefacebookmemes

I also think outright bans aren't the answer. I think more restrictive gun control is definitely in order though. One thing that would definitely help is to require that firearms be kept locked up when not in use. A pistol adequately secured in the bedroom should be more than enough to make you feel secure without leaving yourself open to being robbed by someone and having your guns distributed to criminals. It will also reduce the rash of accidental child-related shootings. I would also like to see more comprehensive background checks, including more rigorous record keeping and better access to mental health and non-judicial disciplinary records. I also think a national firearm registry would be in order, as well as a removal of the ban on the CDC to study gun violence. All of these things will absolutely help us to better understand what can be done.

You are correct that in a country where there are more guns than people, a blanket ban is not going to work at all. However, there are steps that can be taken, that are being ignored because of the interests of the firearm industry. I support anything that decreases the number of firearms in our country, as I don't think your average person is responsible enough to handle them with the care they require. However I also recognize that there are millions of legal gun owners who do take proper care of their weapons, and as long as they hold up their end of the bargain, I don't think they need their guns stripped away.

My point is more toward the statistics behind guns as self defense. If you're looking at pure numbers, owning a gun is far more dangerous than not owning one. It increases your chance of being murdered, it can be stolen and redistributed into the criminal ecosystem, and it can be accessed by a child and end in tragedy. All of this for the chance to protect yourself from an incredibly unlikely scenario. However, if you're willing to take the steps to legally and safely keep the gun, then I suppose it's your choice to take the risk.

u/scsibusfault · 2 pointsr/smallbusiness

> I suppose I should practice though

Yes, yes you should. It's good that they're in a safe since you've said you've got kids. You could perhaps look into one of the bedside safes that use biometrics for easier access, like a SpeedVault or a Hornady RapidSafe.

There's another one I can't find at the moment, but it mounts to any vertical surface, and pops the handgun up with the grip facing your hand, ready-to-grab.

u/DeaconGumby · 2 pointsr/guns

As I have smaller children, I needed something that was a bit more "safe" than just velcro'd to my nightstand (which I did before they arrived). I switched out to a GunVault SpeedVault SV500. Its small, I actually bolted it to the back of my nightstand. Opens easy, drops down for a quick grab of my pistol. It would keep most robbers from even knowing its there (who looks behind a nightstand in a smash-and-grab...they generally just toss the drawers), keeps it away from the kids but keeps it quite easy to access. Costco has them often for less than $100 (they are $123 on Amazon right now)

u/eskimoexplosion · 2 pointsr/guns

I bought a cheap holster on amazon and attached it to the back of my headboard with some wood screws and washers, If you're concerned with burglars just throw a tshirt over it. Or you can think about getting something like this.

u/SCfreedom · 2 pointsr/fatpeoplehate

I use the Scosche Rhythm+ HRM along an App called iCardio/digifit on my phone.

The app has you put in all your stats height, weight, sex, age, etc and it will continuously monitor your heart rate and give you an accurate indication on how many calories you burn for your workout.

One nice feature is that you can sync the app with Myfitness Pal and it will automatically upload your workout.

One con is that you have to purchase the upgraded version to get it to work with a HRM.

u/Marcusramirez16 · 2 pointsr/CAguns


Under CA law:
If you leave your gun laying around and a child obtains your firearm and uses it, you will be convicted of a crime. This does not apply if your child breaks into your safe (seriously... here's a link http://law.justia.com/codes/california/2013/code-pen/part-6/title-4/division-4/chapter-2/section-25105).

I don't think CA has given us any requirements (i.e. thickness of metal, type of lock, etc.) to what 'locked container' means.

I would go with something that is fully enclosed, has a combo lock (so you don't have to find a key at 3AM), that your child can't realistically get into, and can be bolted to something.

Here are a few that I like.

u/WarcraftLounge · 2 pointsr/liberalgunowners

Concealment of the gun is 9/10 of the battle. Just don't put it somewhere obvious. We all refer to a "nightstand" gun but it's not sitting in a pedestal, under glass, on a nightstand.

Some people have a bedside holster that tucks into the mattress. Some people have a quick-release safe on their nightstand or in a drawer in the nightstand.



As to being inebriated, that's more of a self-control thing. Don't touch the gun when you're drunk. Period.

u/shyiaguy · 2 pointsr/guns

You should consider a GunVault SV500 SpeedVault. It's relatively inexpensive and reliable. This is what I store my EDC in when I get home from work. I have 2 small children.

Most ppl around here recomment these MDUSA rings, theyre pretty sturdy and have a lifetime warrenty (noone has ever said they failed them. I also commonly see Nayoya rings _~30 bucks on amazon IIRC) being toted as well priced but great quality wooden rings

Edit- Nayoya rings also Woot has pretty constant discounts on Body by Jake rings (Quality seems ok but Im not sure about shipping to uk?)

u/jkr · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Yep, they come with straps. These are the one I got:


I'm sure the wooden ones that people recommend are better, but these do the job just fine, they're very solid, and I haven't had any problems with them getting slippery from sweat in the sort of workouts I do. Even if I upgrade to wood in the future, I'll still probably want to have these around for outside use.

u/InternalEnergy · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Unweighted bicep curls won't do much no matter how many reps. If you want hypertrophy, you need significant resistance. Fill some jugs of water (~8 lb/US gal)

Rings are not expensive and unlock a lot of really cool and challenging movements. $40 buys a decent set. Highly recommend.

u/dragonalighted · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

The ones I got are Nayoya (amazon link)

I like them, they have been working for me really well.

u/-Kaneki- · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Thanks, I actually just ordered some wooden gymnastic rings a couple days ago. I did a shit load of looking around, unhappy with all the dip and pull up equipment that required tucking your knees and then I found this. The pull up bars are 7ft high, (PERFECT for me), you can buy a multi grip dip attachment that can mount from any height, put your gymnast rings on it, do your rows on the safety bars, it allows for every possible calisthenics workout you could imagine, save for human flags. I think it's funny that I'm buying a squat cage for a butt load of things except it's primary function (squats). So I think it's safe to say I'm set on equipment haha.

u/AdabadaYou · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

MDUSA is having a labor-day sale and their wooden rings are probably the best value you'll see for wooden rings right now; however, the plastic rings are still cheaper. These are what I got: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009RA6C1K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 although I think I remember them being $30 not $40. At $40 you might as well splurge the extra $10-20 and just get nice wooden rings.

The foam is the interlocking tiles of puzzle piece looking foam you can get at most stores. If you have a harbor freight nearby, that's the cheapest place to get foam.

If you want to go with EVA, it would need some structural support so it isn't floppy. For that you could use 1/4" cpvc pipe and bend it into the shape with some heat (just be careful that the pvc doesn't burn and turn yellowish/black since it can release toxic fumes!). Another option could be something like plywood or aluminum cut into the shape with foam layers over top of that.

Carving it out of XPS foam is an option as well. It's the pink or blue insulation foam at hardware stores.

I hope that helps a bit

u/lurchyaddams · 2 pointsr/P90X

I've got concrete floors with a laminate tile on top. Super unfriendly for certain videos. It was almost a necessity to put down some mats.

They are holding up well I've had them for a year and a half with minimal signs of wear.

u/90Days_Lex · 2 pointsr/insanity

I've found that thicker exercise mats are better for two reasons: (1) they muffle noise better, which is because (2) they reduce more impact and save your knees a lot. There are several kinds of exercise mats, some that are yoga-mat thickness (which don't reduce impact as much, I didn't like mine for insanity at all because it just helps you grip the floor but not cushion jumps) and puzzle-mat thicker ones like this here that I've found help me a lot. I'm only 24 and fairly light (125lb female, 5'5") but my knees are awful so I've found those are the best for me.

I know a lot of people that do Insanity on carpet just fine (I have hardwood), so it's really what you're most comfortable with but especially for the noise factor I'd use something on the floor. :)

u/Show_me_the_puppies · 2 pointsr/knitting

Ground cover. You're going to want to first clear your tent area of as much snow as possible, and stake down a tarp on which to put your tent. Ideally, I'd love to have some of this stuff to add another layer of insulation and to keep any moisture from leftover snow from seeping in.

I have pretty much a brand new weight bench with 40lb bar and weights totaling up to 185lbs (with bar weight added) that I want to sell, I'm just not using it.

u/OoogaOoogaYoink · 2 pointsr/knives

I'll give you some options here instead of just one choice.

This CRKT is a wonderful tool.

If you'd like another Spyderco you can't go wrong with a Dragonfly or a Centofante III.

If you've never got a Kershaw they're killer knives for the price. The Leek is a great introduction.

Or, you could buy 2 knives with your fifty. Ontario's RAT I and RAT II are some sweet knives.

Depending on your taste. You simply cannot go wrong with any of these knives.

u/sgrantcarr · 2 pointsr/knives

[Ontario RAT II] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BBPAOCW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_a7Bkxb3BR0017)

At $24, it's a steal. I'd say it's worth between 2 and 3 times what it goes for. My favorite sub-$100 knife I've tried by far!

I recently picked up a Benchmade Small Summit Lake for $99 (plus tax put it at $108), and I LOVE it! It was my first high-quality knife. It took a $108 knife for me to replace my $24 RAT II as my EDC. They're that good.

u/optional_downvote · 2 pointsr/knives

If you like kershaw you can get a blur with S30v steel for around 65$ on amazon if you still want a kershaw. I've never been too impresed with them since I find their build quality to be lacking. They seem to have an excessive amount of blade play and use average quality steels in most of their knives. The a premium steel that can hold a razor sharp working edge. The spyderco delica/endura line is also a great knife. They have full flat ground blades that come razor sharp from the factory with absolutlely no blade play. I personally carry a green delica as one of my edc knives. The dragonfly is also great if you want a knife that dissapears on your person. it is a featherweight knife, that cuts and handles like a much larger knife.

If you are looking for a knife that can take an absolutely harsh beating, I would have to reccomend an Ontario RAT 1 or 2 depending on you size preference. They are a bit heavy in hand compared to other knives it size, but perform just as good as any of my spydercos. It is also on the cheaper side at around 25$.

The benchmades are also a good choice, but I would also reccomend the benchmade mini-presidio.

Anyways, I thought I might as well just post some links to them:

Just to add a few more that fall well under budget and are still awesome.

u/SJToIA · 2 pointsr/knifeclub

You have a lot of good choices available within the $50 range. My personal two top choices for a small, inexpensive but well built folder would be the Ontario RAT 2 and the Cold Steel Tuff Lite. Both are under $30, easy to carry, and very capable. If you want more of that traditional look, go with the best Case model you can afford. Great Eastern Cutlery is really nice too for traditionals, but a bit more pricey. Another option might be an Opinel, classy and inexpensive.

u/Rocket_Puppy · 2 pointsr/EDC

What do you use the Skeletool most for?

If you use the knife on it constantly and daily, then yeah, get a good knife. If the stuff that you do cut makes you nervous with the Skeletool then definitely get a dedicated knife.

If you use the bit driver or pliers on the Skeletool the most then you probably don't need to carry a dedicated knife.

Give the Sage 5 a good look as well if you are considering the Para3. I'd also strongly recommend finding a Spyderco/Benchmade/Zero Tolerance dealer and fondling a bunch of knives before making a decision on which knife to buy.

If you have never carried a dedicated knife before it would be a good idea to buy a cheaper knife or two before spending $100+ on a knife.

Could try something like the Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara 2:

The Ontario Rat I/II


Kershaw Cryo

CRKT Squid

Try some under $30 knives, pick one that looks like something you would like to carry, and pick something that is dang near the polar opposite. It will let you know what you like in a knife much cheaper. Differences in blade size, blade shape, handle shape and how they are used might change your opinion on what you think you need in a knife after using a dedicated knife for awhile. After that you can make a truly informed decision on a high-end knife.

u/eltonnovs · 2 pointsr/knives

You get used to friction folders, but I understand your concerns. If you want a locking knife if would forget about them. Making it a locking folder is a pretty extensive mod.

It's something totally different, but the Ontario Rat 2 is a pretty popular knife over here. It locks, has good steel and is pretty affordable. But it doesn't have the looks of a higonokami.

u/SirNerdian · 2 pointsr/knives

Thanks! Now I have it down to the cryo 2 blackwash and the rat 2

u/Taboggan · 2 pointsr/knifeclub

Well, I prefer a lighter EDC, so i'd recommend the

  • Kershaw Skyline

    This one is a very nice EDC for most people who use a knife for lighter tasks such as box cutting, opening packages and the like. I would not recommend this for someone who tends to use their knives for "heavier duty" tasks.

  • Kershaw Leek

    Pretty much the same recommendation criteria as the Skyline, but this knife is both spring assisted, and has a more "delicate" point.

  • Spyderco Delica

    Probably one of the most recommended knives for someone who wants an overall solid EDC at the price point with a lot of versatility and good overall durability. I own one myself, and this one is great for EDC.

  • Ontario RAT 2

    The Ontario knife company really hit it out of the park with the RAT series, the Ontario RAT model II is a better choice for EDC over the RAT model I, mainly because the knife is a bit smaller putting it at about 2.75" blade and less "intimidating" for someone who needs for EDC.

  • ESEE Izula

    I really like the Izula as a fixed blade EDC knife, it's a fucking tank and you can be sure you can rely on it everywhere, but it does lose some versatility and convenience because it isn't a folder.


    Please keep in mind that these are just my suggestions and reviews, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me anything.

No wrist based HR monitor works for rowing, the problem is due to the load going through the arm muscles as you row meaning the light can't get a read on your HR - ideally stick with a chest belt

I used to get a lot of finger injuries. I read on some pro climber's blog that they use one of these to warm up. He would just squeeze it the whole way while driving to the gym. I started doing this and my fingers have been feeling much better.

u/slanktapper · 1 pointr/motorcycles

The lever is never going to change regardless of what you buy.

However if you get something like this, and keep at it at work you'll be fine


u/rivalarrival · 1 pointr/Firearms

While good technique and a carefully selected gun can go a long way, I would also strongly recommend a grip strengthener. If she has problems racking the slide, I'd recommend starting with the blue (5lbs/finger), or maybe even the yellow (3lbs/finger).

Even just a couple minutes a day can considerably improve gun handling, tighten up groups, etc.

u/dinoherder · 1 pointr/sysadmin

See your doctor/physio. Try exercising your wrists and hands in different ways. I find pushups, a powerball hand exerciser (example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Powerball-Classic-Gyroscopic-Exerciser-250HZ/dp/B000GQJZJA/) and a squeezy hand exercise (example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ProHands-Gripmaster-Tension-Finger-Exerciser/dp/B0006GCBL4/) with a spring for individual fingers fixes the problem and stops it coming back.

u/maumacd · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm a big fan of things that you can set up, and then as you walk by them in your house like do a rep just because. Much better than free weights which as you said, just gather dust!

Pull up bar (that has other useful uses)

Gripper (Can use at your desk!)

listen to music while you exercise - regardless of what mp3 player you use Music makes workouts fun!

u/WolfyB · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

Quick question for you. Do you have any experience with these grippers that are supposed to work the fingers individually? I'm not sure whether to get that or just one of the more traditional adjustable ones like this. Or even one like this? Thanks :)

u/ZubinTheKing · 1 pointr/Tribes

Make sure you have a good mouse/mousepad(would recommend EC2 Evo [or DA4G if you're 1.83+ meters tall] and Allsop XL Raindrop mousepad) and a high framerate config like this: http://pastebin.com/UV6usP3C
Using eagle pistol and nova colt(you can try going for max accuracy with nova colt and shooting each shot with long pauses inbetween like you would with a sniper rifle) will warm your fingers up better than using chain since the hitboxes for chain are bigger. Something I found that helped me both in getting my fingers ready and in relieving some stress(in general not just for games) is using handgrips: http://www.amazon.com/Gripmaster-Exerciser-Tension-9-Pounds-Finger/dp/B0006GCBL4/

u/KorinFox · 1 pointr/Fitness

You mean one of these?

It only really helps for grip. You get better at musical instruments by playing musical instruments. Better at playing video games by playing more.

u/MustardCosaNostra · 1 pointr/guns

Seriously man best $10 I ever spent They also make an even heavier one which I have never seen.

It fits into a pocket, just keep it around and use it when you have a spare moment. It also helps in bowling.

u/tarbis · 1 pointr/Fitness

http://www.amazon.com/Gripmaster-Exerciser-Tension-9-Pounds-Finger/dp/B0006GCBL4 might help. My experience is the one i linked is a little to easy for me

u/Gadaeus1 · 1 pointr/FidgetSpinners

I disagree emphatically. The heavier the better. If I could get it 5lbs I would.

Then again... I play guitar so my fingers are quite strong. Maybe that is why I feel like I do. Also this https://www.amazon.com/Gripmaster-Exerciser-Medium-Tension-7-Pounds/dp/B0006GCBL4/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1498832428&sr=8-9&keywords=hand%2Bstrengthener&th=1

u/jubsy · 1 pointr/graphic_design

Exercise and ibuprofen for any inflammation outbreaks. Increasing my hand strength and stretching my fingers out after a long day at the desk has worked wonders for me.

u/dave_kash · 1 pointr/climbing

Okay, thanks for the tip! It would at least be something for me to do at my desk, and make me feel like I am doing something that will help me improve haha. Do you think that something like this or this would be more beneficial since it seems to be targeting the fingers more, or are they all exercising the same muscle? I'm not really a workout person, so my terms are probably all off haha.

u/vrillusions · 1 pointr/Guildwars2

I bought one of these a couple weeks ago to help with the carpel tunnel / RSI I get in my left hand. I bought the red (medium tension) one and while I could use it I couldn't get many reps which is recommended over strength so I bought the blue (low tension) one as well. It's easy for my index and middle but then my ring finger and pinky get a workout. Now instead of twiddling a pen or something I'll use this throughout the day. Goal is to get all fingers to the same strength and then go back to the red one. It's definitely worth the $10.

Also as much as you don't want to. If you start to notice tingling in your fingers STOP PLAYING. That's a sign that you're getting carpel tunnel / rsi and you MUST STOP. Trying to get this message out to as many people as I can because I didn't stop and I've been dealing with this carpel tunnel stuff for a couple years now. If you have one of those foam stress balls squeeze that while you look over your battlestation. If it's the hand you're using the mouse (which apparently is more common but it wasn't for me, but also I got it while typing a lot) see if one finger bothers you more than others. If it's the finger you use for your right mouse button don't blame having to hold it down constanly, shift things around so it's easier to hold it down.

u/TheCraftyWombat · 1 pointr/Guitar

Good advice in here about calluses and playing a lot. But many of us don't have 2 hours per day! I wish I did though.

THIS is a big help in the beginning. Get the red one.

u/dustinsjohnson · 1 pointr/golf

Try this for your tendonitis: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KGOMBC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_FvglDbGT004KM

Worked for me. There's some good exercises on YouTube if you just search "flexbar"

u/NuunEnergy · 1 pointr/orangetheory

Good luck. That injury is slow to heal... The brace didn't really help me. Yes, it felt sort of nice to have the pressure, but it didn't seem to solve the problem. I found that strengthening with the Theraband Flexbar (green) was the single biggest factor in my recovery. https://www.amazon.com/TheraBand-Tendonitis-Resistance-Tendinitis-Intermediate/dp/B000KGOMBC/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?crid=213C1FKRMID4Z&keywords=theraband+flexbar+green&qid=1562694719&s=gateway&sprefix=thereband+fl%2Caps%2C224&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1

Here's the one I have from Amazon

There's a couple of exercises that really stretch out tight forearm muscles. There's one for medial (golfer elbow) and one for lateral (tennis elbow). I do them both to keep it all nice and loose.

u/cartman630 · 1 pointr/Fencing

It depends on what the problem is exactly. I had patellar tendonitis, which responded well by doing quad stretches. Using resistance bands can help strengthen them also. Although I've never had elbow tendonitis, many people who have tennis elbow use this: http://www.amazon.com/TheraBand-26101-Thera-Band-Flexbar-Medium/dp/B000KGOMBC

I don't know how effective this is from practical experience. The videos on YouTube make it sound as though its an incredible solution. (Spend some time on YouTube viewing reviews by professionals)



u/Parisinthethespring · 1 pointr/steroids

Take a look at the theraband flexbar. Bought one 4 months ago because of elbow pain and after daily exercises my tennis elbow has gone away. I keep it at my desk and throughout the day will do elbow exercises.

u/katakura_silky · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

amazon has a lot of things you can try including this:


i've had it so bad it hurt to hold a cup of water in my hand. in that case, it was rest and time that fixed it.

you also might want to look into bpc-157 if you are peptides-inclined.

u/bbfan23 · 1 pointr/Tendinitis

I've had tendinitis for over a year now. About 8 months ago I got a cortisone shot that lasted for about 6 months, and I felt great to the point where I just forgot about it. When it started creeping back, I started to research as I didn't want to get a another shot (it was excruciating for two days) and saw that it's just not a good long term solution anyways. My pain is on the inside arm bend through my lower arm and on the outside tip of my elbow. This was caused from excessive mouse work/clicking, which unfortunately I cannot just quit doing. Making a fist and extending my arm while flexing at the wrist is very painful.

I read about people having good luck with the Therband and immediately ordered one. The results have been mixed as I was starting to feel better after about a week, but has fluctuated as I may have over done the exercise to begin with. I'd recommend giving it a try, but GO SLOW! https://www.amazon.com/TheraBand-Tendonitis-Resistance-Tendinitis-Intermediate/dp/B000KGOMBC/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=theraband&qid=1574792778&sr=8-5

Good luck.

u/Ionlife1 · 1 pointr/cscareerquestions

I had a lot of wrist pain when I was in high school due to excessive gaming and ignoring my wrist pain while playing (a couple times playing LoL my wrist went numb and I just shook it off and kept playing).

It was a major problem for me and doing wrist exercises has been the greatest help. I bought this wrist exercise bar off amazon and do exercises 3-4 times a week. I rarely worry about wrist pain now.

u/tydirod · 1 pointr/nSuns

I've been dealing with golfers/tennis elbow for years, focus on your form and try not to do movements that aggravate it. For me, flys and bicep curls are the worst so i try to do them slowly and stop if it flairs up. The best relief is lots of stretching, I use this and the steam room.

u/_kc_mo_nster · 1 pointr/homegym

does anyone else have this power cage? I recently picked it up and really like it but would enjoy more options on the pull up bar like what's available for the Titan cages. just wondering if anyone has seen or know of options out there i can look into that'll fit properly.

u/digital_parts_guy · 1 pointr/subaru

Look into 303 Aerospace to protect the synthetic leather and vinyl dashboard.

u/wintyfresh · 1 pointr/sandiegoriders

I don't have shiny bikes, I have bikes that get caked in mud at a freshly watered motocross track and then left in the garage for a week. S100 gets them spotless. To keep the plastics in good shape I'll occasionally hit them with some 303 Aerospace Protectant.

Far from the dirtiest I've had a bike, but here's before and after with S100 and an electric pressure washer on a low setting. A high pressure nozzle on a garden hose would do just as well.

u/Mr_Face · 1 pointr/subaru

u/x_ZappBrannigan_x · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

Oh I see, I thought you meant exterior stripping. I apologize. Here is the link for 303. I use the gallon and distribute in spray bottles but for personal use that spray bottle will last quite some time.

u/zx666r · 1 pointr/BMW

Nice! May keep an eye on them to make sure they don't start fading. I know some of the micro-suede fabrics like to do that. I actually sprayed down (lightly) my alcantara to help prevent fading with this stuff

u/jn46 · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

For leather, regular 303 Aerospace Protectant actually works great. I've gotten numerous comments about how well my leather has held up, and I attribute it to this.

I also do a yearly deep clean, and somewhat regularly wipe down with plain water. It may not be a "sealant", but it lasts quite a long time.

u/sdp1981 · 1 pointr/scooters
u/Satansbigsausage · 1 pointr/Kayaking

303 is a UV protection product for use on marine equipment and aircraft. Regularly coating inflatables with it after periods of heavy use is a good way to prolong the life of the product.

u/G-wow · 1 pointr/infiniti

I've had my '12 for 3 years now. No issues at all, in Chicago. Something to reduce the chance of the dash cracking I use 303 sun protectant, it can be applied to almost any interior surface. https://www.amazon.com/303-30306-Aerospace-Protectant-Furniture/dp/B000XBCURW

Aside from the CSC failure which is shared between the 370Z/G37 and 350(?), it's common to do a csc delete, multiple companies make the kit.

u/movesIikejagger · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

Is your bedliner exposed to the sun? If so I would recommend a UV resistant product for it.

Such as 303 Aerospace. This can be bought in a very large volume, from Amazon, as well.

u/phineas1134 · 1 pointr/boating

Looking good! Nice work! Now that you've got them nice and clean be sure to give them a generous coat of protectant. I have been extremely pleased with 303 UV Protectant. It will not only give the pads a great shine, but it also will protect them from UV and hinder future mildew growth.

u/taiguy · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Does amazon ship to you?


u/BlueContigo · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

Any idea how that compares to something like 303 Aerospace? That's my go to for any trim/vinyl.

u/iresolve · 1 pointr/klr650

This is one product I’d use:

303 (30306) Aerospace Protectant, UV Protectant for Boats and Patio Furniture, 32 fl. Oz(package may vary) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000XBCURW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_xanSDbVC3S0F5

Heard it works well on car interiors in addition to tonneau covers for trucks.

UV exposure is what really impacted the fabric more than anything. I’ve got a different product I use on the rainfly for both my tent and hammock made by nikwax.

u/DaPanda13 · 1 pointr/Porsche

I use Aerospace 303 . I've seen some stores carry them but I order mine online.

I use it for my interior leather and plastic bits with Microfiber towels and exterior with a few sprays into the wash bucket. I also apply on my door/window seals to prevent doors from freezing up during the winter.

I've heard some stories of this being true so take it with a grain of salt. I don't live in a city where it will freeze up too often, but I apply it during the winter anyways to just be safe.

u/staringispolite · 1 pointr/Fitness

tl;dr: Here's a dumb one. Given the equipment I have at home (below), what are the best exercises to work in some total-body / complex lifts to my weekly schedule?

  • 2x Selectech dumbells (up to 55lb each)
  • Misc resistance ropes
  • Parallette bars (small parallel bars ~1ft off the ground)
  • Std size exercise ball
  • Destabilized pushup bar (it sits on a ball, so it requires stabilization)

    Details: I quit the gym a couple years ago in favor of martial arts and bodyweight exercises. I'm happy with this in general, but I want to maximize gains/growth with exercises LIKE squats, deadlifts, OHP, etc. How can I safely/effectively do this at home. (For instance, do squats have a dumbbell equivalent?)

    Ideally looking to add two 30min sessions per week. My other routines would still be the majority of my workout schedule.
u/pelvicmomentum · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals
u/Exiled_In_LA · 1 pointr/xxfitness

I have used 2 different kinds of adjustable dumbbells. At home I have a York set - the smallest version of these:

Super simple, it just takes a minute to put the plates on and off. I really like them, they're pretty basic but they get the job done.

For a while I shared a tiny weight room with some workmates and they got a super swoopy high-tech set, I think they were these Bowflex ones:

Much easier to use, but after a few weeks they were constantly broken! Much more expensive too.

One down side of adjustables is you can't do supersets that require different weights, so you have to plan your workout accordingly.

Good luck, I hope this helps!

u/The_Comma_Splicer · 1 pointr/nsfw

Bowflex Selecttech 552. I've got the 1090 that goes up to 90 lbs and would definitely recommend them.

u/_fat_guy_ · 1 pointr/Fitness

Long story short.

I got a treadmill.

A bench

pair of dumbells

all brand new.

I was gonna sell all of this. But I just got out of school from the summer, and now with work all day I feel like I could get into fitness. I'm 200lbs 6' so not terribly overweight, but I don't really know what I'm doing. I don't know any workouts besides picking up a dumbell, but I don't want to be that guy that does 1 workout, has massive biceps, and is tiny everywhere else all around.

I guess what I'm asking is... what kind of workouts should I do so that I'm all-around fit. I'd like some muscle, but nothing crazy.

Also, if anyone can recommend what kind of weights/bar to get for my bench let me know as well. Thanks

u/cjbest · 1 pointr/running

Yeah, we definitely haven't let it gather dust. I did have to scrape off some built up rubber from the rear roller last year, as I recall. We just give it a vacuum inside the front housing, oil it up once in a while and that's about it. I think we got it on deep discount at the time - maybe $999? But if you count on ten years with it, that's a hell of a deal for a ready-when-you-are gym.

We also picked up the Nautilus dial-up weights at that time. I can't recommend them enough. We got a stand for them that fits into the corner of the room and our second, unused bedroom is now a full gym and gaming room. Treadmill, weights, room for yoga and crunches, etc, plus an Xbox. It's heaven compared to a gross, expensive gym.


u/recurrence · 1 pointr/vancouver

Loads of people swear by this http://www.amazon.com/Bowflex-SelectTech-Adjustable-Dumbbells-Pair/dp/B001ARYU58/

Cuts the cost down dramatically and there are even better prices online. :)


u/FatBaldWhiteMan · 1 pointr/steroids

I'd rather have a complete set from 5 - 50 lbs, but those are really expensive, 90% would not be used most of the time, and they take up quite a lot of space. At first I got a pair of those shitty ones with a a screw on the end. They do what they are supposed to do, but if you have to change the weight between sets / workouts, it gets tedious quickly. Then I got me some of those beauties (different brand though), used. They are a lot better with changing your working weight in between sets. Look for them on craigs list or ebay, used are good, no need to buy new.

If you use them daily, (or at least regularly), they are worth their money. Just watch a bit after them, and they will last you a lifetime.

u/Pancakes_Plz · 1 pointr/BustyPetite

u/Semiao91 · 1 pointr/Destiny

I have a small gym at my house that i use for working out in the holidays when im bk home so ill share with you my personal experience and lay down some advise.

1 - Make sure u either buy good quality metal weights or go for rubber protected ones. Reason beeing if u invest in sht quality metal weights they will start degrading super fast and will stain ur shirts and floor.

2 - You will want to always do that last bench press repetition, so get a self spoting bench since u dont wana rely all the time on Erisan or someone else to help u. I prefer the type of power rack that has the bar fixed to the cage, the ones that only let you move the bar in a vertical axis wich makes ur movement for either squats, sholders, arms and chest super clean. The same cage contains 2 security pistons that you can set for self spoting. Not neceraly this model or price but jsut to give you an ideia of wat im talking http://www.amazon.com/Marcy-Diamond-System-Linear-Bearings/dp/B001D78PCE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1453428177&sr=8-3&keywords=gym+cage

3 - You can try these weights wich will save you some space and time, i have worked with them before and personly they fell a bit wierd in the begining but once you get used to them your set.http://www.amazon.com/Bowflex-SelectTech-Adjustable-Dumbbells-Pair/dp/B001ARYU58/ref=pd_sim_200_2?ie=UTF8&dpID=51nnMxox1bL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=0H7KD5QGQ6XDAG37ANR2

You might want to check the max weight specs on that rack. I can't find them on the link you provided and people in the comments mention it can be wobbly.

First squat rack I bought was only rated for 310 lbs max. I'd never done squats before and had no idea that I'd be at 300+ lbs in 4 months. I ended up having to buy another rated for more weight.

My father was in the marines in the 70s and came home when I was somewhere between 1 or 2. April 22 was his birthday and I always have a hard time finding a present for the old bastard. I stumbled across this on amazon one night trying to get ideas. http://www.amazon.com/KA-BAR-Marine-Corps-Fighting-Straight/dp/B001H53Q6M/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1462620162&sr=1-1&keywords=ka+bar I have never seen his eyes light up like they did that day. He looked like a little kid on christmas. Apparently before he went in one of my grandfathers friends gave him his kbar that he used in ww2 island hopping in the pacific and he had etched the places he had been in the blade. Some scumbag stole that knife from him just before he was to leave to come home. Definitely one of the best reactions I have ever gotten from anyone I have bought a present for.

Hey there! Im also 6ft, im more a lean build and look pretty bad unless im at around 167lbs. Id try dropping to around 170, then try to gain 5-10 lbs of muscle especially on the shoulder and back to get a good V-shape.

See if your gym or doctor have a nice weighing scale that can look up your body fat %, if its still high then try different diets (Carb cycling, Keto) and different cardio workouts (HIIT, 3min shadow boxing, sports). Empty stomach cardio in the morning and Keto One meal a day has been rumored to help lose stubborn fat deposits.


If you want to do lifts at home, make sure to buy safety equipment as you can seriously die. Set up one of these in your garage: https://www.amazon.com/Fitness-Reality-810XLT-800lbs-Capacity/dp/B01N4I8FOY/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=power+rack&qid=1558831817&s=gateway&sr=8-3 . and start with 5x5 Stronglifts Workout routine: https://stronglifts.com/5x5/


If money is an issue then look up the best bodyweight exercises you can do and start doing 100 pushups while your legs are above you on a chair or get your cat to sit on you. Doorway pullup bars are also cheap. Do some squats. You can improvise weights using jugs of water, rope, and a good solid pipe [Check youtube].

You need to bulk. If you don't have access to to the gym do pullups/chinups, and dips to start. Eventually when you get better and stronger, start using weight.


Dip Belt for using weight:

A good multi purpose tool for a home gym. Dips, pullups, and belt squats.

That's weird, the chains on the ones at my gym don't even tough your clothes, shouldn't hit your leg either if you have it high enough. They look just like these, what would the alternative to a chain be?

u/GreySceptic · 1 pointr/xxfitness

Personally, I'd like a(n):

  • FlipBelt

  • 1.25 lb plates

  • Dip Belt

  • Jump rope

  • Anatomy Textbook (or other fitness related textbooks, especially coffee-table type books)

    and, of course...

  • Giftcard: for athletic clothing (especially somewhere that sells women's weightlifting shoes, as that's what I actually need right now), massages, yoga classes, food...

This is great. I'm also on the search. I've heard terrible things about the BSA branded knives, so I'm looking elsewhere. I also know there's a 100% chance this knife will eventually get lost, so I'm looking for cheap (no $150 Benchmade yet!). I've found plenty of ideas from /r/knives, I've been going back and forth with these two:

u/RS14-2 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I've got a few knives, but the interesting ones are an Opinel No 8 and a Mora No 2. They're not traditional, but they work fine as paring knives and are easy to keep very sharp.

u/mpypmyropys · 1 pointr/knives

IMO, Opinel or Svord Peasant Mini. Opinel. Simple carbon steel pocket knife with a solid lock, really useful blade profile & edge geometry, and heaps of class. Can't praise these little things enough. My one complaint is that they're not one-hand-opening. Svord Peasant Knife Mini. Again, about as simple as you can get in a folder, with a carbon steel blade, and no real locking mechanism to speak of; when you hold the knife, your hand wraps around the tang and keeps the blade from closing on your fingers. Very useful for outdoorsy kinda stuff, as in a pinch, you can thwack the spine of the blade with a big bit of wood to split kindling and whatnot, without worrying about a lock failure. The tang also means you can use your thumb to open it one handed. Only problem with the Svord is that the fit and finish is pretty shoddy. The grind can be kinda wonky, but as a practical odd-job knife, it's not the end of the world.

u/designtofly · 1 pointr/Wet_Shavers

Yea, looking at the individual retail prices for all the components:

Opinel Knife $12.95

Kaweco Pen $25.19

Godwin Bottle Opener $38

Poppin Notebook $9

That comes to a retail value of $85.14. I guess that's not so bad. However, while the bottle opener is cool, there's no way I would pay $38 for it. Without that bottle opener, the package is $47.14 at retail prices.

u/notnotTheBatman · 1 pointr/EDC

There are plenty of "cheap" knives that function wonderfully. For instance there is the Mercator K55K, any Opniel, Case SOD Buster, Cold Steel Tuff Lite, Camillus Trench and many more I cant think of right now. There's no danger in a "cheap" knife if its well made.

u/mattschinesefood · 1 pointr/nyc

Huh. I didn't really know. I don't live in NYC, but spend about 5-6 weeks a year there on average.

I'm usually carrying an Opinel. Definitely can't open one handed - sometimes I can barely open it with two hands and have to use my teeth.

u/PapaUrsidae · 1 pointr/knives

u/Lazerr · 1 pointr/knives

How small of a knife would you be willing to purchase?
Any of the Spyderco Bug series would be a good choice. Priced right and come in different sizes.




All three deal

For opening boxes (cutting tape) any of those will suffice. If your cutting cardboard, then mostly the Grasshopper will do (although not efficiently)

Also an Opinel looks classy while still being functional. All different sizes to choose from too.

u/IDontWantToArgueOK · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Opinel makes a very nice, high quality folding knife that is non-threatening in appearance and about $10. They've been making them for well over a century and your gramps probably uses one to cut an apple while leaning on a fence under the shade of a large tree.

It's a carbon blade, so wipe it down after using it, and occasionally rub it down with oil (I use coconut oil). They make stainless steel variants that won't rust and don't need to be oiled, but the carbon is higher quality steel.

u/breezy727 · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

Hi! Happy to respond!

Well the high cost is a bummer - I'm not sure about water purity in NZ but what is the cost of tablets? Usually they last forever and you only need one for a liter or so of water.

First-aid kit - you don't really need to buy a premade kit. You're going to want some first aid items in case of emergency: bandaids (do you guys call them plasters?), antibiotic ointment, anti-itch cream or bug sting relief capsules (if needed, I don't know NZ insects), some painkillers (aspirin, Tylenol, whatever), some benadryl (anti-allergy relief) at the least are things you should include in your kit. Those are the minimum items you should bring and you probably own most of them already. You don't need to bring a whole box or bottle of each, just a handful will be fine. If you were to add anything else to that I would bring some gauze tape for larger cuts or wrapping joints as well as some moleskin to help with any blisters you might get. Put all those items into a plastic zip-loc bag (waterproof!) and that's your budget first aid kit with everything you'll possibly need. And you should already know how to use all those items.

Rope - I'm a big believer in the many uses of rope. You can hang your food to keep animals from getting it. You can tie your tent or tarp down in bad weather. You can cut some off and tie your camp shoes (see camp shoes below) to your backpack if necessary. You don't need a lot of rope but for the cost and weight it's can be nice to have. I honestly use the cheap rope people buy to use on clotheslines. But this isn't necessarily a must-have, especially if you don't need to tie anything down. This reminds me that it's good practice to bring some duct tape (not a whole roll) in case you get a rip in your tent or something.

Torch - I personally like a headlamp best. The one I have is lightweight and cost about $25, it is bright and it has a flashing option. I like the headlamp because it keeps my hands free to do other things. I don't usually hike at night but it is easier for me to pee if I have both hands and don't have to hold a torch. But really any torch will do - the key is finding one that is bright (casts a wide beam so you can see around you), durable (in case you drop it), long-lasting (doesn't eat through batteries quickly), and lightweight (priority in that order). You'll mostly want it around camp at night - cooking, getting up to pee, pointing it in the direction of a scary sound. It doesn't need to be expensive or very nice.

Multi-tool - Your mileage may vary on multitools. A lot of hikers are rabid about them but I just carry a small knife. I carried a multitool a few times but the only feature I used on it was the knife. If I'm in the woods I have no need for a screwdriver or a pair of pliers or a can opener - that's just extra weight. Is there any feature of a multi-tool you think that you'll be using besides the knife? Think about that before committing to a possibly expensive and heavy multitool. You might be better off with just a small knife. Check your local laws regarding knife sizes though.

Camp shoes - I didn't remember it before but in case you hadn't thought of these, grab some lightweight shoes you can wear around camp at night. Your feet will be happy to be aired out of the boots for awhile and it'll be easier to put on in the middle of the night if you have to go pee. A pair of cheap rubber thongs is probably fine. Bonus if your camp shoes are waterproof - if you have to do stream crossings it's nice to change into them instead of getting your boots drenched :)

I'm not sure of the brand, but I got it at a sporting goods store.

Not just one of the tension ones that spreads between sides of the doorframe!

It's a lot like this one!

id recommend getting that. You can probably find it a tad cheaper but 30 bucks is around the price range. I recommend doing the wide grip and the furthest parallel grip. start by doing every other day and eventually you want to do it every morning everyday. it sounds intense but it's just 20 mins a day.

So, adding in some load-bearing exercise is a great idea! Nice job on the weight loss so far! If you are too shy to post your question in /r/bodyweightfitness, I recommend simply reading the FAQ they have. It's really helpful and I think you'll find the information you are looking for. Do you happen to have a pull-up bar? If not, you can buy one that goes in your door for about $30, I believe. Pull-ups are great exercises! I am a fan of the 50 Pull-Ups program. You can also just throw in some push-ups, too!

u/iacobus42 · 1 pointr/Toughmudder

Run (elliptical) and bike now to get ready for the cardio. Also go out and hike (walk) in parks (with hills!). The distance is the hardest part of the TM. Even walking 10 miles is a challenge for a lot of people. Your feet will get blisters if you try to walk 10 miles today without having any preparation.

Focus on pull-ups and pushups. You will need a decent amount of upper body strength. Check out this video on pullups. There is no such thing has lacking access to a pullup bar. See this for 100 places to do pullups. Also consider getting a door frame mounted pullup bar. They don't damage your door/walls and are apartment (or Mom's Basement) approved. This is the bar that I use and it is only 30 bucks.

u/techrat_reddit · 1 pointr/Fitness

This seems to be only 20 dollars. Would you still recommend building my own?

u/cyclicpitch11 · 1 pointr/bootroom

Probably. If its muscle pain thats totally normal. You've probably built up a bit of lactic acid which causes the soreness. If you own a foam roller use it after you work out. It does wonders with breaking up lactic acid and making you feel a lot better. If you don't have one I totally recommend buying one. You can get them for pretty cheap off amazon and they really do work wonders. This one is 10 USD. They do hurt like a bitch if you're sore when you use them but after you feel 10x better. Also drinking a lot of water THROUGHOUT THE DAY (not just before and after working out) helps with muscle pain.

Joint pain is also probably fine and its just sore because you haven't done anything like this in a while. Just ice whatever hurts after working out.

I'm also not a doctor. If the pain stays at the same level for a while or becomes worse you might want to see a physical therapist. If you haven't heard/felt any loud pops or anything its extremely unlikely that you've done anything, but getting a professional's opinion never hurts.

u/spike_africa · 1 pointr/powerlifting

I would highly suggest foam rolling your entire back out after any serious lifting is done. I spent $20 on a hard foam roller from amazon.com the full 36" one and it had made me feel so much better. I foam roll about once a day sometimes more if I am feeling super tight.

EDIT: Here is the one I got. I highly suggest you spend the $20 and feel better from it.

u/brynnflynn · 1 pointr/running

Foam rolling, and regular icing. The exact same you would do during intense training. If you don't foam roll (and not everyone does), this is a great time to get into it before you need it. It's a dirt cheap insurance against injury if you're committed to running healthy.

I have a foam roller that works like a massage and stretching at the same time, and you might want a yoga mat like this one that hopefully won't off-gas nasty smells.

If this is your first roller I would definitely go with the full size as it seems that you can do a lot more exercises with a full than a half. I'm 6' 2" and 200lbs and it seems pretty solid to me so you should be alright. Just make sure you don't toss it around and are careful with weights around that thing as it is just foam, no matter how dense it is.

Like guns, pepper spray (especially the 'police strength' type) have their own laws and restrictions, which you can read here and here.

While pepper spray is the "more comfortable" option for those unfamiliar with firearms, please remember it has limited range dependent on the size and design of the canister, and factors such as air movement can even end up blowing the spray into your eyes (making yourself vulnerable, although this risk is mitigated by using gel sprays). A gun has more range, and is not stopped by simple barriers. You can read more about using pepper spray in self defense here.

Get a more "mature" looking haircut, anything longer and unkempt always makes you look younger.

Try not to wear anything super trendy. Will help you keep a wardrobe longer (avoid large patterns in shirts, especially pants). Try to keep everything you buy more on the classic, "toned-down" side, i.e. flat color chinos, simple button-down shirts, and get some chukkas or nice shoes. Follow /r/frugalmalesashion for the best sales.

Try to avoid sneakers and athletic shoes.

If you get simple stuff (J Crew, Gap are best for pants IMHO as well as shirts) (Clarks or others for shoes) and take care of them (esp your shoes) you can keep them for a longer time and avoid having to get rid of stuff because a certain trend is over. Most of my button down shirts are several years old and khaki chinos and a pair of plain dark, well-fitting jeans (Levi's are almost always on sale) won't go out of style

ALSO get a watch

and gear an outfit that will let you tuck shirts in if you can, that always makes you seem more mature if you do it right (don't tuck a dress shirt into jeans. avoid dad moves)

I quite like this one, did you have a particular one in mind?

u/RingS1inger · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

How long do these watches generally last? Thinking of picking one up. (On a budget)

As a side note can I replace the battery myself?

u/ChromatinNazi · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I wear throughout the summer just nylon straps unless there is a more fancy event, then I would wear leather/metal. But honestly, I would say the most basic/common colors are moss green, red/blue/white, blue/orange/white and then basically any leather strap you like, since those exist in diverse colors and textures.

As someone else has already recommended, the timex weekender on navy/grey is an excellent start.

Things to be aware of:

  • Different types of straps: Nato, Zulu, Two piece, etc....

  • Strap width: 18mm, 20mm, 22mm.... a.k.a careful buying a strap that doesnt fit your watch
u/paulkinseyscale · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

If you want a white one, you're better off buying this with a purple strap seperately. You get the watch and an extra strap for $32.

Lots of the other weekenders are on sale for 50% off now. If you just want the watch and are going to switch the strap, grab this one for about $12. Expires Dec 6.

u/Arcs_Of_A_Jar · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Some basic characteristics of the most everyday watch you can get: no flashiness, silver-colored metal only if there's any metal, simplicity in design, lightweight, and any kind of band except black leather.

Some of MFA's most often mentioned basics: The Timex Weekender, the Timex Easy Reader, and Citizen Eco Drive(you would probably want to replace the black watch band with a brown leather one).

You're not limited to these, however. Some personal favorites are the Orient Sky, the Orient Union, Skagen, and Seiko.

Don't take my examples as a firm limitation, however, there's literally hundreds of good watches out there.

u/tryingtofigureittout · 1 pointr/streetwear

The Weekender Is one of Timex's more well known in expensive watches with a plain, easy to read face

u/Jerel · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Seems alright to me, however I own one as well and I personally prefer one similar to this one because of the red seconds hand. Its a small detail but I think it makes the watch more aesthetically pleasing. Definitely fine for wearing every day

u/sea_of_clouds · 1 pointr/xxfitness

Not sure about your friend's budget, but I have a Scosche Rhythm and it works great. It's just a HRM, nothing else, not even an app! It's super basic but pretty good; I also have a Fitbit Charge HR and the data from each is usually pretty similar.

I pair the Rhythm with an app called Digifit, which analyzes the data provided by the HRM. There are other apps you can use as well, but that one works best for me. (Android phone, btw.)

u/Maiq-The-Truther · 1 pointr/interestingasfuck

I think the safes with buttons right now are much more reliable than biometric safes. This safe pictured is a Gunvault Speedvault SVB500, which is known to sometimes have problems at times. However, there is a manual button version, the standard SV500 which is the vault I have next to my bed every day and is much cheaper.

It's not the most secure, but if you want to keep a bedside gun out of reach of kids or friends who don't know how to properly handle firearms, it works great.

u/E36wheelman · 1 pointr/Firearms

While I don't have kids, I still keep my pistol in one of these:


They also offer biometric ones if you're scared your kids may see the code.

u/Old_Deadhead · 1 pointr/news

There's not a single incident in the article regarding a kid being killed by a parent thinking it was a burglary. Apparently shit doesn't happen "all the time".

Additionally, before you follow your strawman down that path, every one of the deaths in the article could have been prevented with a simple gun safe.

One of these, bolted to the headboard, and you have quick, secure access. Maybe stupid people just shouldn't have children.

With regards to Robert Downy Jr, yes, he should be thankful he's alive. Why the hell would someone get a pass from doing something so incredibly stupid, just because they're a celebrity? What a ridiculous question.

u/WhatATravisT · 1 pointr/guns


Mount this thing near or around your bed however you please.

Program to open when you press two buttons simultaneously. Keep it in the same spot and open it at least three times a day from however you would be opening it at night for a month.

If someone breaks in muscle memory tells you where it's at and where to put your fingers. Pull the loaded and chambered gun and defend yourself.

This option may be cheaper for you than reinforcing your door. It also solves the problem of keeping drunken roommates from offing themselves or others.

u/serpicowasright · 1 pointr/videos

Check out one of these

Not to pricy, able to access quickly, and safe from the children.

Really the best thing after this is that every member of the family (yes even the children) should understand how to safely handle (or not handle a firearm).

u/jonyou · 1 pointr/guns

I have this micro safe. I like it cause the fast access, internal battery, holes on bottom for mounting and it comes with a half decent security tether. Of course some bolt cutters could probably cut it. But it is pretty nice.

But for your case I'd recommend

Fast access and you can bolt it to a stud. I just prefer the fast access for if I'm home during a burglary. There is not going to be a safe that is cheap and portable that is going to prevent a determined burglar So like other users said I'd secure the apartment better as well.

u/The_Paul_Alves · 1 pointr/ofcoursethatsathing

u/StaplerLivesMatter · 1 pointr/CCW

I think people get a silly hard-on for instant bedroom access. You aren't John Wick. There won't be an entire crew of baddies teleporting into your bedroom.

A quick-assess push button lockbox is fine, or those nifty SpeedVaults. I have a hard time believing you're going to sleepwalk through punching the combination and pulling your gun out. But IMO the gun should be locked even if you didn't sleepwalk.

u/Huntinjunkey · 1 pointr/standupshots

There's ways around all alarm systems and doors. If they want in they'll get in. And there's tons of safes that are mounted under desks, on head boards, or easy and quick to grab places that you can open very quickly with finger print activation or a quick access code.

u/AidosKynee · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I just got my first set of real rings (which work way better than my homemade version). However, I have a few questions about their use. For reference, I bought the Nayoya Gymnastics Rings, as they seemed very popular around here.

  1. How do you efficiently switch between heights while doing the RR? For example, I'm doing ring push-ups paired with tucked rows, and it's very annoying to pull the rings up, make sure they're the right height, make sure they're the same height, etc.
  2. Along these lines, I was thinking about marking the positions for various heights, as the straps have no indicators. Any advice for what to use? Do you just draw on it with a white marker or something?
  3. Finally, my rings often slip ~0.5-1 cm when I first put weight on them after adjustment. I'm stringing them the right way, and there's no twist in the strap. Am I just being too hasty?
u/WiseGuy1-L · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

On average its about 27 *C here.
If taking them down means they will last a way longer time than a year then I will definately take them down - I'm frugal (nice little word for cheap lol). The two top plastic rings I see so far, the problems with them are one's that I just can't live with. I've heard too much good about the wooden rings to not want them :) but I want to make the right choice for my situation and out of my frugal(cheap) nature while still making an informed decision.

u/DREADLOCKSS · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

u/burner010101 · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

u/kdan721 · 1 pointr/homefitness

I use rings my basement.

u/Xydin · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

These rings aren't too much more expensive, and claim to be rated at 2000 lbs.

Glancing over the reviews, they seem to be mostly positive verified-purchase. I don't see anyone mention any problems, except a few cases where the buckle broke and one that ended up being user error (installing the buckles backwards).

u/Carlton_Honeycomb · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

Yes; they will definitely add a lot to your setup.

I would recommend spending an extra $10 on these. But yeah, dips, static holds, rows, push-ups, planks, other core work can all be done with your setup. Don't forget, rings are portable; you can hang them from a tree in a park, your backyard, on vacation, etc, so you could use them for pull-ups, muscle ups, etc.

u/unique-eggbeater · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I have these and really like them. They're cheap (at least at the moment - currently at 1/3 their normal price according to Amazon), sturdy, big enough to be comfortable while still being small enough to pop into a backpack, and the straps are easy enough to set up after you get used to it. The straps also have built-in velcro thingies to hold them rolled up. They're also easy to adjust mid-workout when going from rows to pull-ups or whatever.

As a disclaimer, I've only owned the one pair of rings, lol. But they are perfectly adequate for the RR.

u/willowbeard · 1 pointr/Fitness

Got a pair of these.


I mostly do inverted rows with them, but I mix in ring push ups on occasion, and I've tried to start working L-sits... I'm nowhere near there yet...

u/ayjayred · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

Thanks. Curious. Why did you choose that over this other product?

u/Erik02 · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness


My review, the rings feel great and its possibly the hardest plastic I've every touched. I don't see any way I could damage them or the straps even with my friends abusing them.

u/sylkworm · 1 pointr/martialarts

Jump rope, run, do body weight exercises (push-ups, pull-up, air squats, crunches, burpees, etc), stretch out, buy a set of rings and do pull ups and ring exercises.

I have the Bas Rutten workout, and you can do them with air punches/kicks if you don't have a bag. The kickboxing CD has 10 2-minute rounds with 1 minute rest in between or 10 3-minute rounds with 1-minute rest in between. If you can do the 2-minute round set with good technique, you have pretty decent cardio. IF you can do the 3-minute round set, you're bangkok ready.


There's also the Precision Strike app that you can get for your phone, where it calls out combinations and does round timers. I used to use it more, but I find I like the pacing of Bas's workouts better.

Finally, you can always just pull up a workout video on youtube. Some might require you to work a heavy bag. Some won't.

u/Yohumbus · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I'm not sure a product exists exactly like that, but you attach EVA floor tiles. You can find them in home improvement, department stores, sport stores, and even discount stores like five below. They are easy to cut with a box cutter and could be attached to a regular gate with some zip ties.

u/Palmer165 · 1 pointr/homegym

It’s an inexpensive foam (not rubber) puzzle piece mat that I ordered off amazon . This is 3 sets shown.

It’s actually very warm to stand/lay on, even on the cold basement floor. If you leave weights on it (like overnight), it will leave an indentation, but it’s always popped back up. I’m happy with it so far, but it’s too early to give a proper review of its durability.

I’ll upgrade to a plywood platform with rubber mats once I’m in the new house and have a rack, but I’ll likely keep this for floor work (stretching, yoga, etc.).

That's good to know. I will almost certainly never lift 500 but I'm a fan of some amount of over engineering.

The knives I always recommend under $100:

  • Ontario RAT II (~$30)
  • Benchmade 556 Mini Griptilian (~$90)

u/iLolo · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This guy right here.

Without question the best knife $25 can get you. The knife in OP's hand is a Gerber ripoff of a CRKT M16-10KZ. And when I say ripoff, I mean BLATANT ripoff.

I used a CRKT M16-10KZ for a very long time, then I decided I'd upgrade to that Ontario Rat II, and it's amazing how much you get for such a slight price increase.

Seriously, if you want an inexpensive knife, get the Ontario Rat II.

u/DemonSanctuary · 1 pointr/knives

re: thumbstuds. That is where I give cold steel a nod, they make theirs removable, so when putting on a clamp style sharpener you can remove them so they do not get in the way.

But I agree with all this. Honestly, as well a great EDC blade for a low price in your budget that will serve you well, is an Ontario Rat II. They can be had for about $30 - $40 and are amazing budget blades. They are not assisted, but the deployment with the thumbstud are amazing. Well worth a try to purchase one.

u/Soggy_Pud · 1 pointr/CasualConversation

So. its $0.68 over but I'd buy this again. Why again? Because its the 4th or 5th one I've bought. Every time I get one a few weeks later I let some one borrow it, they fall in love with it, and so I just let them have it. Just happened again over Christmas. I have many other much more valuable but when I need a dirty job done the rats always been there for me.

Regarding cost, I was lucky that bags were included in my ticket cost. However I definitely see how it would suck if you had to pay an extra baggage charge.

I'm actually finding almost nothing on Craigslist. You mention Fitness Reality - something like this would just barely fit in my basement:


Are their comparable ones of less price? For example, I don't need 800# capacity, and I actually don't need a pullup bar. In fact one that high in my basement, I would not be able to get my head above the bar (I have 85" of room - this one goes to 83.5" apparently).

u/xnet445 · 1 pointr/Fitness

The rack is this one I got off of Amazon for around $150: it is a favorite in r/homegym.


The 350+ lbs of plates, bench, bar and a half rack I plan to flip on CL were $340 used. The material for the platform came to about $200, so around $700 total as pictured, which is what I was spending every 3 months on a trainer and gym I've outgrown.

u/HighSpeed556 · 1 pointr/homegym

On Amazon. After tax, it cost me $99 to have this thing shipped right to my door.


And, I'm not gonna lie. It's not the sturdiest rack in the world. I can easily make it sway side to side (albeit not much; it still feels decently solid enough). And I can do chinups and pull ups, but I wouldn't be trying to fucking swing from the pull up bar. But...for $94, you're not going to beat it! I've racked up to 250 lb on it, and it seems to have been fine. It's rated at a 300lb max, and I'm sure if I actually get to the point where I can consistently bench/squat that much damn weight, I'll actually invest in something more robust. For my current fat out of shape ass, I'm benching 110 5x5, so I have nothing to worry about for a little while.

Also, for what it's worth, it has holes that allow you to bolt it down to a platform if you wanted to.

I'm happy with the purchase, for $94!

u/ElderKingpin · 1 pointr/Fitness

If I'm just looking for a basic rack so that I can stop using a door-frame pull-up bar would this be ok?

Haven't actually bought it yet but it's a somewhat cheaper option to consider.

Progress would stall pretty quickly with goblet squats. I'm just trying to think of what I'd be ok with my wife using. I think the stands in your OP could be trusted if she were to do front squats. They just don't look that stable and it would be awkward trying to re-rack the bar after back squats, but controlling the bar in front of you would be much less cumbersome.

I would still go with something like this as a minimal rack but if you don't have the space you don't have the space. Now you know why I kicked my cars out of the garage.

If you don't need it to be portable, like the one you linked, this has been great for me. I got it for like $89.00 and it does everything I need it to.

I'm 265 and had similar issue with needing something free standing that wasn't very expensive. Bought this: Cap Barbell Power Rack Exercise Stand https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HYQP72O/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Xf3RBbC4DAKKV it's extremely well built and sturdy.

I bought a folding pull up bar from Amazon, which works well enough as long as it is placed on a non-slip surface.


It might look flimsy but it is made of lightweight and extremely strong aluminum.

I switched to this unit because it could accommodate bench and squat presses:


It is not portable, of course, but I have a permanent gym downstairs and it saves on space.

u/zchrykng · 1 pointr/weightroom

Ah, yeah. I should have specified. The squat rack I have includes a pull up bar.

This one - https://www.amazon.com/Barbell-Power-Rack-Exercise-Stand/dp/B00HYQP72O

The doorways at my place are not very sturdy. Also, I'd rather not drill or anything. I've also read scary stories about people getting injured because of the bar falling down mid-exercise.

woah i never realized i could get a power rack for only 130 bucks on amazon! i might have to actually buy these things instead of a gym membership..

I'm curious if for a person starting BWF for the first time, what is the better equipment:

1: Bowflex Body Tower (http://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B006353HCE/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1451632703&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=Bowflex+power+tower#featureBulletsAndDetailBullets_secondary_view_div_1451668291177)

2: Cap Power Rack with rings (http://www.amazon.ca/Cap-Barbell-Power-Exercise-Stand/dp/B00HYQP72O)

Please note that the doorframe pull up bars won't work for me, and my wife won't allow me to drill holes in the walls/roof (and it's too bloody cold outside for an outdoor set). If you have any other suggestions for stuff, please let me know. 93" basement, I'm 6'5", 275lbs.

u/Simsmac · 1 pointr/gainit

Try craigslist, you can sometimes find cheap power racks on there. You don't need anything fancy, something like this would work, but keep in mind it doesn't have safety bars. You may need to upgrade to something like this later on, because it's easier to bail on a squat with the safety bars. You don't need a spotter if you practice safely failing a rep with an empty/lightly loaded bar.

u/TheWickedApple · 1 pointr/Fitness

Thanks! I'll check those places out. Only reason why I asked about the $100 tag is because of this and this

u/easye7 · 1 pointr/homegym

I'm 6'1" but with a 7" basement ceiling, I don't see pullups happening unless I'm gonna stick my head between the joists each time lol. Same with OHP unfortunately.

I'm looking at normal height racks now, I assumed that with only 2-3" of clearance I would have trouble assembling the rack, but it sounds like that isn't the case. The Powerline PR200X is the current frontrunner.

I don't have a fear of falling backwards or anything, I've been lifting for quite some time and I know my limitations. It looks like I could certainly get a squat stand for much less than a full cage, but I still have concerns about stability. However, I am fairly certain I can just bolt a stand into my basement slab, which would cure stability issues I would think. Also, a cage would allow for some attachments, like dip bars, which would I would definitely want. I'm wondering if I can actually get a good squat stand with safety arms for less than 400 shipped, which is what I'm looking at for the Powerline.

I've never had an issue using the Hr monitor. I can understand when moving it can be a bit off but shouldn't be anything crazy. I also use a hr band that goes on my forearm and it's very accurate. I find the chest ones to be uncomfortable after a period of time.

Scosche RHYTHM+ Heart Rate Monitor with Armband, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JQHTJS2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_VvLIyb63KR8C0

I've tested the Apple Watch, Scosche, and the equipment used at my doctors office and they all hit the same number ever time. Just thought I'd share. :)

u/TrekaTeka · 1 pointr/orangetheory

The OTF Flex Arm Band is their soon to be released HR sensor which is a re-branded Scosche arm band.

You can see the OTF branded one here: https://i.redd.it/ssm8bv4thdzx.jpg

Many people will have different opinions on which watch/brand is "best". It all comes down to what you value most: battery life? satellite acquisition time? super accurate pace? All GPS watches will tell you distance, time, pace, and splits. Most of them, however, will usually round your pace to the nearest 5 seconds.

Two biggies for me were satellite acquisition time and battery life. I started out with a Garmin FR10, which was a great starter watch, but I found myself standing around for 5, 10, even 15 minutes just waiting for it to find a signal! I now have a Garmin FR230, which is way speedier due to its ability to use GPS and GLONASS. I am even able to pick up a signal while still inside. I can turn my watch on while I tie my shoes, and by the time I'm done, it has acquired a signal and I can start my run right away.

Optical HR tech is fairly new, so you won't find too many watches implementing it. Additionally, you have to remember that you will have to wear the sensor directly against your skin in order for it to pick up your HR, so if you live in a place where it may be cold enough for you to wear multiple layers a majority of the time, a watch with an integrated optical sensor may not be the best investment. Instead, you may look into purchasing a separate optical HR monitor such as the Scosche Rhythm+, which connects to Bluetooth/ANT+ compatible devices and can be worn on your forearm.

My recommendation would be the Garmin 230 (or 235 if you are dead-set on getting a watch with an integrated optical HR sensor) since it fits your requirements. I have had good experience with Garmin devices, their customer service is great, and their products work well. I hope that helps!

u/thebulljames · 1 pointr/AdvancedRunning

I purchased this based on DC Rainmaker's rec and I have found it to be both extremely accurate and comfortable, as did he.

u/gingermilkshake · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I bought this Scosche HRM: since it syncs to your bike, it doesn’t require any adjustments for swapping between users... We don’t use it at the same time so no input on if it gets too sweaty to share....


u/eaglessoar · 1 pointr/Fitness

Yea maybe not directly to get calories but it's probably easier to estimate than guesstimating. Anyways I was looking at this one which synchs to bluetooth on your phone. It's optical so I'm curious how well those work compared to the banded ones. How do the bands fit around a female's chest, any interference with their breasts or uncomfortableness while exercising?

u/21045Runner · 1 pointr/pelotoncycle

I’d recommend the Peloton shoes and mat. The rest of the accessories are garbage

My recommendations:

u/goomba870 · 1 pointr/running

I have a Garmin FR230 and am interested in heart rate training. I also have Apple Watch S2, which seems to give me inconsistent readings. For that reason I sort of scoffed at wrist HRMs and didn't get the Garmin FR 235 that has an HRM.

Now what are my best options? I see the Scosche RHYTHM+ mentioned around here as well as various chest straps. I could also sell off and get the 235 if folks think the HRM is pretty good.

If it matters I'm doing Pfitz 18/55 training so there will be some long runs where the effort must be very dialed in. Thanks!
