Recently bought a home and have a good size finished room downstairs that I plan on turning into a weightroom. So far I have a power rack assembled, a punching bag hanging and some dumbbells.... My question is what is the best type of flooring to have? I have soft carpet right now and was planning on getting a mat to deadlift on, or possibly even replacing the whole floor if something is better than rug (assuming it's not outrageously priced to replace)
Other things on the list:
cardio machine (probably elliptical)
also links to cheap equipment stores online are appreciated. Currently use edfsuperstore.
