I am in the process of designing a home gym for the extra room in my basement, and I want to see what other AM home lifters do/have done. I have about 350 sf to work with...
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"
That is the most sad looking bench ever. Why don't you use the white one.
I would use the floor...
Is that a frog sandbox in the corner? I had one of those when I was a kid!
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...
lol that's awful
I have a Bench with 116lbs, and one dumbell...
All you really need is a stairmaster to get jacked.
I have some stuff coming!!!
What did you get Liquid!? Share for those of us who have not the money for our own...
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.
