    Home gym

    I looked and it's been awhile since I posted my home gym, I know we have some new guys so here it is once again. I have 1500 square feet of space and spent about 10 years putting this together.

    I've always thought you're gym was amazing....better equipment than most commercial gyms. Just curious...what was the breaking point that made you finally say fuk commercial gyms and do you own?

    Also, Mrs. Bricks doing a show? She's getting that onion skin look to her abs!

    At the time I started buying my own stuff I was living in a very small town with I'll equipped gyms and no 4 hour access. Started with a Hoist V5 3 stack home gym, an FID bench, fist power block and a hack/leg press combo and treadmill just to get back into a regular training pattern.

    Mrs.BRICKS isnt interested in competing, although she's probably only a few weeks off of stage ready and should be able to easily take her division in either bikini or figure. Thanks bro.

    Half the fun is finding the stuff at a good price used within driving distance to avoid shipping charges. Like a treasure hunt. Little by little you'd be suprised how quickly you can find some nice stuff.

    I enjoy training with her but a lot of times we're in the gym at different times. Grab ass at the wrong time and I'm likely to get hurt lol

    I got the hundreds years ago for, get this, 50 cents a pound. Those were new. About half my plates I bought used and half new. I've found equipment stores that also sell used stuff at a fairly decent price. Stuff can also be found from gyms that go under or upgrade their equipment, as well as schools.

    Good story about the tanning bed. Divorced couple, she had the gym in a town I was moonlighting in, he got the one in the neighboring town. She couldn't keep it so it was going back to him. I ask hey to you have a stand up tanning bed? She said sure, you want to buy it? It's yours for $800 and it's got bend new bulbs. Fire sale lol.

    The equipment I've got is the stuff that I've used consistently over 36 years in commercial gyms and have preferred. So pretty much taylor made.
