Which brand of barbell did you use in the pyramid lower body workout? I don't use that workout very often because it seems to take to long to change out my barbell weight and I lose my workout flow. Any suggestions?
What kind of barbell are you using?? I had the same exact problem with a barbell set I bought at Dicks's Sporting goods for $25.00. I just bought a Troy Lite set and I love it, I can change the weight very easily...Here is the site:
This came up recently somewhere else on the forum, and someone mentioned they bought a 55-lb. barbell set (US Weight) from www.walmart.com. I just bought it and it's great -- rubber plates, smooth bar, great textured hand grips, quick spring locks, etc.
My other barbell set was awful -- I always had to stop the DVD to change weights (threaded bar, etc.). Very frustrating. So, rather than be frustrated, I would use my dumbbells.
Now with my new set I keep right up with Cathe, pace and weight load. I can definitely use heavier weights now.
I am fairly new with Cathe and the barbells, but i did some research and the The Troy and The PowerCut Barbell Set (this is used in a lot of gyms for women) This is the one I bought and it came with a video.
