re: Sunny exercise bikes - 23
When I started my home gym my wife’s only request was a spin bike. So I bought her a Sunny. It’s probably been used less than 20 times in the past 5 years. The one we have is the B-1110. It’s got a 44 lb flywheel. It’s well made. The handle bars come off easily so it doesn’t take up much room in the...

re: Recommendations on a folding / wall mounted squat rack? - 23
I wanted a fold up rack too but I know how lazy I am and that I would never fold it up. So I got the 12” Titan space saving rack. I didn’t use the arms at the top like in the picture. I just connected the uprights with the pull-up bar. So it only stuck out 15” from the wall. [link=(https://www.t...

Curl Bars on sale at Walmart - 23
I was looking to add a curl bar to my home gym and found a few on Walmart’s website that were a good price. They’re CAP bars so not the best or the worst bars. [link=(http://www.walmart.com/ip/CAP-Barbell-47-Olympic-EZ-Curl-Bar-Black/236129424)]Regular Curl Bar $38[/link] [link=(http://www.wal...

re: I am beating myself up over a bad stock sale - 23
I just saw a story that there has been an increase in AMC insiders selling their shares. I looked at the graph in the story and saw the CFO of AMC sold 45k shares earlier this year at $9.49! Hopefully that makes you feel better OP. If the CFO didn’t see the run up coming, I’m not sure who would. ...

re: Best tasting electrolytes supplement for - 23
I work outside and on days when I sweat a lot I’ll use H2ORS. I haven’t had to use it yet this summer so I can’t remember how it taste but I don’t remember it tasting bad. They recently came out with a berry flavor that I haven’t tried. ...

re: So what program is everyone running and duration for Summer? - 23
I saw PPSA mentioned a few times so I got Pool Season II to try something different. I’ve mainly been doing strongman training so I wanted a little break for the summer. I also got HIBB while it was on sale for Memorial Day. I plan to try that after the PPSA program. ...

re: Roof repair quote - 23
I noticed I had 2 skylights leaking about a month ago. I called 4 places before I could finally get someone out. They installed a new ice and water shield around both sky lights and sealed around the chimney from an old leak. I paid $1250. This was in Luling. They were able to come a day or 2 after ...

re: Hustler Zero Turn - 23
I've got about 1/2 an acre and went with the Dash XD. I bought is last weekend and had it delivered on Monday after I left to go offshore. So I just got to watch the delivery guy put it in the garage from the security camera and haven't been able to use it. For the little but that I'm cutting I didn...

re: Recommend me a good stud finder - 23
I had the same one and same frustrations. I bought a Franklin Sensors one and like it so much better.

Thermostats on sale for Eath Day through Entergy - 23
I saw a post on SlickDeals about utility companies giving away Nest thermostats for Earth Day. I’ve checked on these before and it seems like Entergy never has anything like this. But surprisingly Entergy NOLA has the Nest E for $30 and Nest Learning Thermostat for $150. That’s a great deal for peop...

re: Riding Lawn Mower Brands - 23
Thanks for all the info and responses. I’ve got a pool in the backyard so there’s honestly not enough grass to cut for a zero turn. I started looking at the rear engine mowers initially but they’re only about $100 cheaper and have much smaller engines. I’ve got a concrete slab behind my garage t...

Riding Lawn Mower Brands - 23
We bought a new house last fall and I’m looking to upgrade my battery powered push mower. I went from about 1/10 an acre to 1/3-1/2. From the research I’ve done, it looks like Cub Cadet, John Deere and Husqvarna are the 3 most recommended, widely available brands. The base models of each are all aro...

re: How to stop bloating and gas - 23
Did you scroll down to the green section with the low fodmap foods? The only common fruit to avoid are apples. Bananas, most berries, grapes and oranges are good. For vegetables you can have carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, green beans, squash and zucchini. Rice is also good. It may not work for everyo...

re: How to stop bloating and gas - 23
My wife’s GI put her on a low FODMAP diet. It helped both of us a good bit. It’s basically a few common foods that people have trouble digesting. The main ones are onion and garlic. Here’s a link to the full list. [link=(https://www.ibsdiets.org/fodmap-diet/fodmap-food-list/)]LINK[/link]...

re: Will removing cypress tree roots from my yard kill my neighbors tree? - 23
I’ve got some kind of ground cover/vine on the side of the driveway where I park. I got a brush cutter to cut it back this week. I started cutting it and then felt like I hit something solid all of a sudden. I started pushing the vines around a realized it was a cypress knee. I found about 10 of the...

re: How much y’all paying for Termite contracts? *Updated in OP* - 23
I just had my house treated this week. It was $1200 for them to drill and spray around the exterior of my house and garage. That’s for a 10 year contract and $125/year annual treatment. When I called to get a quote, they used a satellite view of my house to calculate the linear feet of my house and ...

re: Setting up automatic investing contributions in trading account - 23
I’ve got a brokerage account set up with Vanguard and have automatic deductions taken out each paycheck. I just invest mine in vanguard’s 500 Index Fund (VFIAX). I’m sure you could set up 3 separate deductions for each fund you want to invest in if it won’t let you do them all on one transaction. I’...

re: "Refurbishing" a piece of equipment - 23
We just moved about 6 months ago. I went from a 200 sq foot shed to a 750 sq ft garage so I’m trying not to fill it up lol. I need to get a couple more stall mats to space some of the equipment out. We just had company so I had to move some boxes that we haven’t unpacked yet in here. I just finished...

re: "Refurbishing" a piece of equipment - 23
Thanks! I didn’t do a whole lot on this piece. Mainly just repainted the weight stack, changed the roller pads and cleaned it really well. I didn’t pay attention to the frame color being almost the same color as the color I picked out for the weight stack until I put it back together. The roller pad...
