    all in one home gym

    What would be a good all in one home gym? Lately I've been getting home real late from work and the gym is 30 minutes away. So i thought about getting an all in one home gym. Something like bow flex or something. So that i don't miss out on my work outs on those late days. Anyone recommend anything?

    Prospot definitely gets my vote. That cage is bad ass. I think the stack for lat pull downs even goes up to 250lbs. Very nice indeed

    Depends on your space bro I would much rather have free weights and you can set yourself up pretty cheap if you got the space like a garage. I would start with a squat rack and adj bench then get yourself some Olympic weight dumbbell bars and butterfly clips to hold the weight on that right there will cover most of what you need. I started with that and some weight and added pieces from there. Look on craigslist man someone is always getting rid of great equipment cheap

    That's the problem, limited on space.

    My thoughts exactly. I am going to be starting with a squat rack, plates, adjustable bench and adjustable dumbbells. I can pretty much hit every major exercise with that combo, plus no need to deal with the crowds at the gym. Craigslist is a great resource for getting most of this stuff too.

    Re: all in one home gym

    I only ever train at home (outside of doing cardio/sauna at local gym once or twice a week). I have a power cage and bench which i can do dips, squats, bench press safely without needing a spotter, and it also has attachment for doing pullups. I like it a lot, but i need to incorporate some other exercises to substitute exercise using specialised machines found in gym that i dont have (like cable machines, etc) atm i am only doing big exercises like squat bench deads and military press along with bicep curls and tricep skullcrushers, so i am kinda limited in isolation exercises.

    Re: all in one home gym

    I think a nice bench and some dumbbells and Ur good to go. The only thing is u might get tierd of using the same thing and after a while u gonna need to buy more lbs to lift. There's a old guy that I know and this guy has a crazy body he lifts at home and does mad pull ups. So anything is possible.

    Re: all in one home gym

    A home gym could be a Barbell, some plates, an adjustable incline/decline chair, and some dumbbells. But IMO nothing would ever make me work out at home when I have a gym near by.

    Also the cost usually weights are $1 per pounds sets can get pretty expensive especially when shipping 1000+ pounds of rubber and metal.

    Re: all in one home gym

    I have a little home gym when i cant make it to the gym on certain days due to certain factors in my day. I have a dumbbell set and a sketchy bench and plates that ive had for many years, i think its time to upgrade now that i saw this thread.

    I came across a bowflex ultimate pretty cheap. I've only used it twice. It works pretty good but I rather go to gym. But for the days I work late and can't make it, it works good

    I used to have a powertec home gym. Free weights + machine. It was very sturdy and good quality. Check it out.
