Looking to build a home gym....I have plenty of plates (500#) two bars, two benches one incline and the other declines....where should I start....dbs a pair of 20 - 80....or a squat rack/smith machine...anybody have pics of the home gyms and wish to post for ideas (or just to show them off) would be great. But really confused on where to start....also have a wife and teen wishing to hit the gym... also have a treadmil, bike and a stair climber...anybody have inputs???
wheres latty? doesnt he have one of these?
JIG I just bought a home gym and had it set up last weekend. No pics yet and it is in progress but here's what I've got so far;
Oly bar with 400lbs+ weights, flat/inl/decl/ bench, curl bar, adjustable dbells, and a power rack. Eventually I want to get pro style dbs from about 75-100lbs or more as it's tough to load much more than 60lbs or so on my dbs. The rack is heavy duty, has a chinning bar with a high low pulley. I would definitely recommend the cage.
