Any Home Gyms Out There?

Just cleaned up my gym and figured I might as well take some pics before it gets messy again.

Here's my current setup that I've been running for the past 2 years:





~495lbs of Olympic Weights
~170lbs of Standard Plates
Dip Bar
Some Generic Olympic Bar
Homemade Axle Bar
EZ Curl Bar
Some Power Rack
T-Bar Row Attachment
Jump Ropes, Resistance Bands, Foam Roller, Chains, Etc
Some Pulley System made w/ pulleys, chain, loop bolt, and nuts
And of course much needed speakers for music

Pretty much everything was bought used off Craigslist

Here's a bonus picture of my first setup many years ago:



Wooden Power Rack I made when I was 15 with a handsaw and drill.
It served me well for a year or two but I figured I oughta upgrade once it started getting wobbly on me

Hope I'm not alone, anyone else with a home gym? Take some pics and show it off here!

Love the wooden rack! I used to have decent home gym. Bench, freeweights, punching bag and speedbag. Now I just have a adustable bench and a couple freeweights. The gym is only 3 minutes from my house though, and its nice to get away and see some of the gym honeys .

Same as MikeyRock, parent life means I work out at odd hours ( like now at 11PM -_- ). Also having it in the garage means I can sneak a workout in while the kids nap on the weekend.

Out in the yard I have a HIIT setup with battle ropes, 100# muay thai bag and jump ropes / ect. One day if I learn to weld, I'll probably build myself a weight sled.

Unfortunately that means I miss out on all those gym honeys Diego is talking about.

A bar on some 4x4s is cheaper and ages better than a lat machine.

Yeah but I want something that serves as a pull down/pull back, tricep pull that both I and the Mrs. can use.

I made a simple one; two pulleys mounted to the ceiling beams, a simple 36Ē lat bar and a 1,000lb braided rope that fits the pulleys. Several ways to add/change the weights.

I got this from Northern Lights with a 150 pound weight stack. Its good enough for my needs. I think I paid around $800-900.

I've bought this brand equipment before and its was always good quality.
