There've been some posts lately in which guys have discussed their home exercise equipment. I thought it would be fun to have a thread in which folks who train at home talk about how it stacks up against working out in a commercial gym, the equipment they've got, the stuff they'd like to have, and so on. I did a search and didn't find anything on this topic, so I'll go first: I set up my home gym in my garage last year. I got a PowerTec rack and PowerTec assisted chin/dip unit, a solid flat/incline/decline bench, 300 pounds of Olympic weights, and interlocking rubber floor pads. A buddy gave me pairs of dumbbells from fifteen to 60 pounds. Finally, I have an Olympic curl bar. The whole thing cost maybe $1,300 to put together. I still have my Gold's membership but have scarcely used it since starting my current cycle, which focuses on front squats, stiff-legged deads, bent-over rows, military presses, chins, dips, and incline bench presses. None of these movements requires any special equipment that I don't have at home. Although I'm not ready to give up the membership yet, I'm finding that training at home is unbeatable in so many ways: convenience, not having to cruise for a parking spot, never having to wait for equipment, playing music I like, having absolutely no excuse to miss a workout, never having to deal with any knuckleheads other than myself ...in sum, I am really digging it! Things I'd like: a dip belt, a quality Olympic curl bar (mine's hollow and lacks a good solid feeling), and perhaps a seated calf raise unit. It'd also be nice to get some heavier dumbbells, up to 85 pounds or so. For now, though, what I've got is more than adequate. Here's a composite pic of my home gym: It'd be fun to hear about other guys' setups. Any other home trainers here?
