A big ass industrial grade construction crane. Then I could sell it and buy everything doc mentioned, and a new car. :D

I bet Delphi will say a bowflex. :p

But in all seriousness, after switching gyms, I am now realizing the importance of a quality barbell. It kills to use a warped bar, or impossible to get a grip on one with sh!tty or worn out knurling. I know they make all kinds of bars, and some get into some very expensive price ranges. The guy I train with use to have his own bar and kept it locked up at the gym, but they don't allow it anymore, and then I think it got stolen at a meet anyway.

I have a good amount of equipment now, but I could always add:


Monolift
Reverse hyper
Squat bar
Sled(should be getting this soon)
Chest supported row


Those would be good additions.

Yeah.

Power rack with 1" spacing

Bench

Thick bar

Oly Bar

Plate loading ez bar

reverse hyper

GHR

Roman chair

A million pounds of weight


That sure would set me up...for about 20,000 bucks.

No, it's like 35 to 50 cents a pound, so a millon pounds of weight would be significantly more than 20 grand. :D

A room full of power racks!
Some 100 pound plates.
A bunch of those pad type of things for deadlifts. (where the ground is solid where your feet are and is softer where the weights are) That way people don't get mad if some noise is made (since 405+ weight can make a lot of noise even if you set it down lightly)
Bars with real rough knurling.
CHALK IS NOT ONLY PERMITTED BUT ENCOURAGED!


No No's:
No cardio equipment (drains budget for weight room)
No machines that have a free weight equivalent (since they also drain the budget due to being more expensive than free weights)

A lifting platform, a high quality Oly bar and bumper plates so I could do my cleans and deadlifts and squats or whatever and just DROP the damn weight (it makes such a nice clanging sound :D ). Also a glute-ham raise apparatus, a ground base jammer, and a set of medicine balls that increment in kgs. :)

Another Olympic Bar, so I don't have to move the one I have around to the squat rack, bench, and ground as I do about 5 times every work out.
Reverse Hyper
Cambered Bar
SSB
Monolift
A pair of each type of band
A trap bar
600 more lbs. of weight

Some bumper plates and a platform would be nice for my OL lifting, but why bother when I can just do those lifts in the grass:)

Monolift and kettlebells are a must, also a good power rack, and a bench with adjustable height J-hooks.

weighted jump rope, boxes for squatting and jumping, a Fitter Board, Balance Boards, and Indian Clubs, or weighted baseball bats.

then a Rev. hyper, glute ham raise, and a variety of bars, such as safety squat bar, MacDonald bar, etc. . .
