Cool thread idea. I'm finishing mine up now. It's actually a gym we have at our company. I'll post some pics once it gets finished.

It's sad really.
But it gets the job done.
About the most I can get on that bench is 205 lbs.
That takes 18 plates/disks to do.
I will upgrade soon. "I hope"

Yea. I know it's bad. lol. The bench in the back I plan to use as soon as I get a 84" bar.That is the most sad looking bench ever. Why don't you use the white one.
Sadly I have ended up there once or twice. With 205 lbs on it there has been times I pushed for that extra rep and had to arch my back to get it. Well, the bench likes to pull wheelies.. Sucks. Big time!I would use the floor...
Yes it is. I have to get it outside this weekend, the kids have been asking about it for awhile,Is that a frog sandbox in the corner? I had one of those when I was a kid!
Man I need a new set up...

no pics... but main thing you need is a bench you can move around..... incline/decline it... and a power cage... adjustable pins... perfect for squats, deads, etc.. and you can throw your bench in, and hopefully set the pins just right so if you do **** it up it wont crush you but you can go low enough to just touch your chest or so...
so many things you can do with a power cage... pull ups... heaps with unloading for military presses... just get some type of bar extensions for dips... a few dumbells + weights + barbell and its about 95% of the equipment you will ever ever need

Picked up some used dumbbells yesterday at Play It Again Sports (.25 per pound!), and a flat/incline/decline bench. My neighbor is building me a power rack. Slowly but surely...
My plan is to get dumbbells from 5# to 90 or 100#, and of course the obligatory olympic weight setup. Finding the stuff I need is proving to be the biggest obstacle.

But did they really need to sell it to my step dad? LOl.
Nah, I got this set up from my step dad like 12 years ago. I just brought it up to my house last summer.
It looks like crap but it gets the job done.
It's all good. btw, the house is like, IDK 200 years old. I live in a historic town. Thus the "dungeon" fx.hey your "dungeon" is probably as big as my entire apartment! now that my friend is even sadder
Also the sock hanging from the pipe has been there since I moved in about 5 years ago.
Figured it warded off evil spirits, so I just left it there. lol.

There's a treadmill and proform multistation gym down there as well, sad part is since i stopped working out at home about a year ago none of that stuff gets used. It's cold and damp and a bit dungeon like down there as well. I would finish it except i live in the country and the power goes out all the and the basement has flooded several times.

the garage, its a multi station free weight with 440lbs of free weights, a machine to do high reps with(on left) and as of now only 35, 55, and 1 45lbs dumbell. Does the job though
