    Question Home Gym

    Anyone else workout at home?

    I have a old school 70's bench with some add ons to it(Leg extentsions/Lat Pull Downs/Etc.), dumbells, a chin up/Bar Dip equipment piece and a barbell. I can also can convert my bench press into a squat rack. All i'm missing is more weights >

    I decided to cancel my gym membership at the end of the month because it basically sucks and is a waste of money. So i'm going to invest in more equipment.

    Just wanted to see what you guys have and recommendations on equipment or online stores to buy from.

    Well if your gym sucks there is no point in paying a membershit when you can get the same results for free @ home! Makes sense to me. Take what you were paying for a membership and invest in getting more weights. 100lb plates all the way!!!

    I recently set up a gym at home mainly because my nearest gym is 30mins away and with 2 young kids..need I go on.
    I got a squat rack with spotter catchers on it. Was alway afraid of hurting myself while workin out alone. Some poor guy was found dead in his garage at the wknd under his weights- in UK- Essex.
    May he R.I.P

    So be cautious working out alone these things do happen.

    Peace!

    Yeah be safe bro. That is some awful stuff. I'm actually kind of scared working out by myself at the house. At least when I go heavy

    I would love to workout at home.. But a monolift is a necessity for me. Tough to find used or reasonably priced.

    Yes that is another big reason and what Mrs P said about waiting on other folks when using the equipment. Small things like that bother me..

    thats a bodybuilder mentality he has... All you and I need is a barbell and plates with a rack and a bench. Well actually I also need three guys to help me get into my gear, then a guy to spot me, two on each end of the bar another to scream at me while i lift and another to film it. And a foam roller.

    I aim to please Georgia A pet peeve of mine is the people that take themselves too seriously on the boards. You can loosen up and be smart at the same time. We're doing pretty well as far as having some great non-douche members here. Glad you're one of em :x

    EDIT: That beating heart is for your avi, not you. No homo.

    Even as a bodybuilding mentality I would like him to tell me one thing he can do in the commercial gym I can't do in mine! People fail to realize how much you can do with one good machine and free weights.
