  • Yeah, We Got That

    One of our most popular questions is along the lines of: "Do you still
    have... in stock?"

    Now, I can understand if it's a limited or collectible item which we do have from time to time, but the bulk of these types of questions are enquiring about items which, quite frankly, we make special plans to always keep in stock...

    "Do you still have 1.5 grippers?"
    "Do you still carry Dinosaur Training by Brooks Kubik?"
    "Do you have Super Grippers?"

    So, just for future reference unless it is specifically and very obviously noted you can count in us having EVERYTHING you see on the sites either in stock and ready to ship asap or shipping with the normal lead time from the manufacturer.

    Books, dvds grippers -- yes, we have them all, at all times.

    Should any item be back ordered (which is rare) you can bet it will be
    announced and posted on the product page itself in a very conspicuous place.

    A good example of something we always have in stock is the Ivanko Super Gripper. In fact, we just got another 12 cases in yesterday. If you want one, we can have it in the mail in about an hour or so: Ivanko Super Gripper

  • Revised Log Bar Page

    We've been going back through the website and taking a look at some products/pages that havent been updated for quite some time.

    With our new digital camera and video game capabilities, there's no excuse for not having more media for you, so be on the lookout for a lot of new pictures and other surprises in the coming weeks.

    One of the pages that needed some work was for Dr. Ken's Log Bar which has been one of my favorite pieces of equipment for a long time now. A lot of folks find that they can do certain exercises much more comfortably with parallel handles as opposed to a straight bar.

    The parallel handles seem to lend themselves particular well to many kinds of pressing -- it's easier on the shoulders I have been told.

    I have found that there are few better tricep builders than an overhead press with the Log Bar although I would have to say my absolute favorite movement with it is the hammer curl.

    The hammer curl is great for building the brachioradialis, that notty muscle just above the elbow. Yes, theres many other exercises you can do with a Log Bar, its actually quite a versitile piece of equipment.

    Look for some video footage on the log bar coming up shortly too...

    Train hard,
    John Wood
