Talking Lets see those HOME GYMS!!!!!!!

Well folks here recently I've gotten serious about lifting again and I've pieced together my own Home gym (actually its in the garage) and I thought since I've never seen a home gym thread I would start one.

Feast your eyes on this.............

YORK Barbell PowerCage with Upper and Lower Pulley attachments











PowerBlocks 5-130 pound apiece dumbell set




Assorted attachments and equipment






And of course a "few" extra 45# plates




In total I have 12-45's, 4-35's, 4-25's and a bunch of 10's, 5's and 2.5's... 2-7ft Olympic bars, 1 Olympic curl bar... and various other attachments.

Also take note of the floor... that is 3/4" thick rubber stall mats (the kind that goes in barns) for added protection of the floor for when I start doing Olympic style lifts next week.

Not too shabby IMO.

I've shown you mine.... now show me yours.

Sweetness, good to see another weight lifter... anyway..
I'm at the gym 4 days a week, but this is what I have at home for when I don't have time. I also do 100 pushups a day with weight on my back. I usually use the backpack for pullups too. (That's right, you don't need expensive equipment to get into shape)

^^ I agree, as if it wasn't enough that you have a kickass garage with a lift, you go and add a kickass home gym to it as well? LOL

That's a nice setup and it doesn't seem to take up very much room at all.

That's a very nice setup, Orange. I like how you have it organized in the corner of your garage.

That was the only place I could put it and maintain maximum usable garage space.
