I had a couple of people awhile back ask to see where I worked out at. Here are some pics from my top of the line gym. It's hot in the summer time and cold in the winter. Perfect.

I like this idea. I would be willing to post up my home gym to help get the thread started.

I am jealous of your weight tree Chub.

Detard- Thanks man.

Stumpy- Thought you'd like that.

LK- It is a pretty badass weight tree ain't it?

Ray- I appreciate it.

Tea- I used to put them on the floor but I was only DLing off of them. I don't think they're thick enough if you plan on dropping weight on them. If you are just going to be pulling and storing things on them, they're fine, but as far as dropping anything, I wouldn't.

Smelly- Haha I think most of the people I know here would argue your "big" part.

Nice!
My cage is almost identical to yours.

Great minds think alike haha. I had mine built by a welder I know. Think he did a pretty good job.

so what would you put under a power rack????

Chubrock

What are you planning on doing in the PowerRack? If you are going to be just squatting and benching out of it then you have nothing to worry about, as the pins should catch anything you drop. If you want to DL and consistently miss lifts near the top, causing the weight to crash down, I would build a DL platform. Some 2x4s with a 1/2in piece of flooring over the top, covered by the puzzle mats works very well.

is it difficult to move a power rack?

Chubrock

Ancom- Haha thanks man. It is pretty pimp.

Tea- Depending on how heavy it is, they can be difficult to move. Mine wasn't TOO hard to move around.

That's a pretty sweet setup. If I didn't love my gym so much, I'd do the same thing in my garage. Love the "sled", by the way.

Yea, it cost me a pretty penny. The boys at EFS said that it was the best one they make hahaha.

Pretty nice setup Andrew... I mean, it's no RHOAC, but it looks good. I'm still looking forward to giving that rack a try one of these days.

Andrew's gym is WEAK. He's got like, old equipment and stuff...looks cheap to me. What is that I see...rust? Whoa, your like..."hardcore" eh? Pfffft. :p

Haha rust? Those are brown colored plates.

Haha I was actually being sarcastic about putting your gym down. All my equipment is brand spankin' new and I'm not a fan lol. It'll take a while before it will look even remotely seasoned.
Would have been cool if I got some used equipment but me buying equipment new at cost price...I just couldn't turn it down.

Btw, beautiful gym layout. Looks like a nice hardcore atmosphere to train in.
