View Full Version : my home gym

well i cleared out some room and made more space to workout so i decided to put together my power rack(excluding the chin bar, not high enough ceiling). I know it looks really squished, but its really not. when i bench i curl my legs back so the rack doesnt get in the way of benching. i have 540lbs of oly weight including bars, and 435lbs excluding the bars. i have thick handle dumbells(home made for $7 + some elbow grease) and a V bar handle for t-bar rows. well here it is!

man that power rack BARELY fit! Look how close it is to the ceiling! lol

02-02-2007, 04:15 PM
great job man. guessing you like lifting at home vs. a gym?

02-02-2007, 05:15 PM
yeah. i find that i like being able to workout late at night and the gym that i would go to closes at 9 and the other closes at 9.30 but doesnt have a power rack or anything good cuz its a health club, so i prefer lifting at home with my music blasting and i can use as much chalk as i want, grunt as much as i want, etc..

and plus, now i can do curls in the rack as much as i want :study:

Thats awesome man....but dang thats a tight fit lol

02-02-2007, 08:38 PM
wow that is a freakin awesome setup... howmuch did it cost overall?

02-02-2007, 09:09 PM
thanks guys. the overall cost was about $1100 bucks . damn there goes my savings. i figure it will last me my whole life if i maintain it properly and keep it in good condition. i'm going to keep adding to it as time goes on but this will keep me set for a long time.

Seems like your going to have to be innovative with your workouts.

I don't understand why you even need that white rack and bench.

02-03-2007, 12:14 PM
I'm envious. :drooling:

I don't understand why you even need that white rack and bench.

because it was a good deal so i got it. besides. the gap between the pads on my inlcine bench makes it no good for flat benching so i use the white one for flat benching.
