Default My future home gym - Pending progress - 06-19-2007, 10:39 AM

Some of you know I missed out on a sweet deal that Leigh was kind enough to share with us. It got me to thinking of the benefits of having such. If I miss a workout at the gym, I won't be pissed because I can make it up at home. Plus my son(s) will have access to much more. Can't tell y'all how excited I am about building this! It's going to be pieced together and purchased without charging anything.

Currently have a cheap incline/flat/decline bench with dumbells through 35lbs. 1 olympic EZ curl bar with 50lbs of plates. (this stuff was mainly for my 12yr old and will be adding to the dumbells. I will be building a rack myself for the dumbells.

I have 2 olympic barbells on order with 600lbs of rubber encased plates. Will have a total of 650lbs of plates when it arrives (currently back ordered...doh!)

I just did place an order for a power cage (pictured below) through IPYU. It also will have the ability to accept the additional Lat/cable row attachment (will order later) as shown in this pic:


I'm pumped!

Plan on adding a bench with leg attachment & preacher curl bench. Then whatever else I get the urge for.

Oh yeah, I don't know what my wife is going to think when this blonde is shipped. I'll convince her it's my cardio

Cheers!
Rick

Damn that diesel bitch about to squat 225.

My cage arrived at the office today! Time to start assembling and cleaning that freakin' cluttered garage. My weights and bars are supposed to be in tomorrow. The blonde must be back ordered.

LG: I'll take some pics, but it might be a little while. The cleaning of my garage is my biggest hurdle. It's actually not so bad, but I'm out of room to put anything. The storage building is full and so is the attic. Wifey and I are packrats!

Okay, here's a couple quick pics. I'll do more as the gym grows and the garage is in better shape. I don't need any crap about the rainbow colored plates or my cluttered garage dammit
