What Is Your Favorite Equipment At The Gym???

  1. What Is Your Favorite Equipment At The Gym???


    I'm looking to purchase some commercial gym equipment for my home gym so I'm curious what people's favorite pieces are. If you know brand names that would be great. I have a power rack, cable crossover, vertical leg press, squat machine, dip station, pec dec, lat pulldown, seated bench press, preacher curl, t-bar row, leg curl & leg extension. I plan to add a rack of hexagonal dumbbells, smith machine?, leg press? I don't know which brand of smith machine and leg press to go with and I am also considering a Hammer Strength pullover & incline press, maybe the shoulder press too. Are there any plate loaded machines that people find better than Hammer Strength? I haven't been to a commercial gym in years so I'm hoping you guys that have can help me out by tellingg me what your favorite pieces of equipment are. Thanks.


  2. I have a pair of the powerblocks that go up to 130#....they are really nice...I recommend those instead of a rack of hex dbs.

  4. Cardio bunnies are a nice addition to any gym, although they can get expensive...

    I like multiples. Then you have the expensive 'upgrades'...

  7. hammer strength is good as far as plate loaded goes, thats all i know of now days.

    def. get a smith machine. not sure what brand tho.

    powerblock dbs.....those would be nice, take up less room and good if only one person is going to be needing dbs at a time. How much did your set go for holy?

    maybe a shrug machine like hammer strength style????

  8. My personal favourite is the WankMaster3000TM

  9. the urinal. I drink a bottle of water an hour.....kinda like doing suicides while lifting.

    powerblocks always looked awesome though.

  10. I'll check out the powerblocks but I wanted DB's that I could throw around or drop without damaging them. Would you be able to dump powerblocks doing DB presses and not damage them?

    I need some input on smith machines and leg press/hack squat machines. Please give me the name of some I can checkout. Thanks.

    Im not sure I would be dropping the powerblocks around like I do some of the dbs at the gym...

    We have a really nice Life Fitness smith machine that I would recommend.

    holy

  12. Personally I am saving up for some equipment myself right now and my priorities are:
    R2 squat rack
    Cambered , straight, and Safety Squat Bars
    Glute Ham Raise
    Reverse Hyperextension

    Now in your case since it looks like you are looking for something to develop your legs I would look into a belt squat machine or plyo swing. I don't know if I can link the website but they make some (google between the lines)
