    I train at home. I have a 34x14 weightroom. I used to be a powerlifter so its mainly set up for that. I have a flat/incline bench, lat pulley, pull up bar, dip rack, sit up bench, squat rack, 2 olympic bars, adjustable DB's, treadmill, exercise bike and a few more lil things here and there. It works pretty well. I have a couple friends that lift with me. We are workin on gettin a cable crossover. That should help us a lot.

    I train at home and have a TDS Power Rack (www.newyorkbarbells.com), a 300 lb. olympic set with 2 extra 45's (CAP Barbell...the stuff they sell at Dicks Sporting Goods for like $139 for the 300 lb. set,) a pretty cheap bench with the leg attachment and a preacher attachment, dumbbell handles with a bunch of 10 lb. plates a few 2 1/2's and a few 5's, a cheap chin up/knee up/dip station, an EZ curl bar which I never use, and that's about it.

    Hmm. Yeah, i guess you can train about every muscle you need with a barbell. You do have a bench and squat rack right? No dumbells at all?

    For dumbells I use a $3.99 bucket from Wallmart. I can put more or less water or even sand in to change the weight.

    i train at home mainly because there is not an acceptable gym within 20 miles of my house, if even that close. just the bally's, q, and 24hour fitness, poser playgrounds.

    just the basics, squat rack, bench, 2 barbells, 2 dumbells, both adjustable, an ellipticle for cardio.

    Okay, I'm requesting a few bans....if you don't recognize Dorians back when you see it, you don't belong on a BBing forum......

    I'm just kiddin' guys...but realy, the only other guy with that kind of muscularity in his back, that kind of thickness is Ronnie Coleman (who is even wider! But, possibly not as thick)
