Former fatass- whent from 302lbs to 207 lbs rippling 05-06
big 3 total = 1175 lbs of RAW IRON!!!MUAHAHAHAHAHA
cybex is a great brand, and they have all kinda of good machines. Just my 2cents
Forza benches and platforms (power rack, too if they make them). EliteFTS stuff is all good. Ivanko, Leoko, or Uesaka bars and bumper plates for Oly lifting. Okie or Forza barbells for powerlifting (including a Texas bar for squat). York or Iron Grip dumbells up to 150 lbs or more. Maybe a thickbar (Cranes might make them, otherwise Black Iron makes good ones).
That should cover all the important stuff.
thanks all this helps a lot
Nice to see a plan for being only 18.
Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

haha well the training facility will come a little later cause it will be quite pricey but thats what its gonna be... a lot of speed and agility stuff with some sport specific stuff ill prolly stick mostly to football with the sport specific cause thats what i know most about atleast till i can afford to hire a few people with knowledge in other sports
