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.

My Pride and Joy:


My Platforms (Oly and DL, homemade fat DB handle):


My Bench and Bands:

My State of the Art Weight Storage Area:



My Sandbag Stand (54"):


Last but not least, My Top of the Line Sled:

hellz yeah!

awesome dude. we should put together a thread where eveyrone posts their home gyms.

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.

I will be proud the day my future home gym is as awesome as yours. Nice Job!

chubrock, did you put anything under those mats? i have the same ones but im just putting em on garage floor. is that thick/strong enough

02-05-2007, 06:29 AM
Sweet gym dude!!
You've got everything there to get ya big and strong!

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.

My cage is almost identical to yours.

02-05-2007, 07:32 AM
Great minds think alike haha. I had mine built by a welder I know. Think he did a pretty good job.

02-05-2007, 07:59 AM
so what would you put under a power rack????

02-05-2007, 09:01 AM
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.

I would use your sled any day!

02-05-2007, 10:22 AM
is it difficult to move a power rack?

02-05-2007, 10:37 AM
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.

02-06-2007, 06:56 AM
Yea, it cost me a pretty penny. The boys at EFS said that it was the best one they make hahaha.

02-06-2007, 11:09 AM
better than my home gym which is nothing

02-06-2007, 11:17 AM
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.

02-06-2007, 04:48 PM
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

02-06-2007, 06:13 PM
Haha rust? Those are brown colored plates.

02-06-2007, 08:13 PM
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.

Quick detour-
what did you use to make those dumbell handles?
